i've got really oily skin too, and if you're willing to fork out a bit, dior have some beautiful products. you should cleanse, tone and moisurise, and if you talk to the lady at the counter (usually in myer or somewhere like that) they can help you. i use the cleansing gel and find that works really well

I use clarins products and they seem to be great for my skin. It usually get's pretty oily and these products seem to be good.

My sister uses them too and she has very sensitive skin and eczema and they don't irritate her skin.

I've got mega oily skin as well. I use the Clinique stuff, not that it makes a difference. Blotting tissue is all I can suggest :roll:

Or... that reaaally cheapo toilet tissue that's in some public toilets, the little single leaf kind. That sops it up really well lol.

Even when I was in primary school my skin has always been shiny and has always seemed to be slightly oily

I have tried so many products, guinot, cetaphil, Aesop, Body Shop, Jurlique, Clinique, Clearasil, MD Formulations, A Natural Difference etc etc etc and I just recently bought a new brand called 'Grown'

I bought it from a local chemist. Its organic skincare which doesnt have perfumes etc like many other 'natural' skin care ranges do and I have to say - I have noticed a huge difference within a week.

Highly recommend, I no longer have people telling me they "can see their reflection in my face" (because of the shine) ... people can be so cruel.

This is their website: [link removed] but it is not really up and running yet I guess that is a stay tuned thing.

Hi!
I too have really oily skin and I have found that Dermalogica products have really helped me. they are a tad expensive but you can go online to skinstore.com.au (I think thats it) or through Ebay and get it at a fraction of the price of retail, plus it lasts for ages. The dermal clay cleanser is great and you get a huge 500 ml bottle. Mine has lasted almost 9 months. If you find your skin gets a bit dry with this the Special Cleansing Gel is also very good. I dont use toner or moisturiser but they have a pretty good selection of these too. It might be best to pop into a day spa or beautician that sells it and ask for a few samples before splurging on the full sized ones.

Hope this helps!

Hello friends,
Actually there are a lot of skin care product available in the market now, but before use it one should take this product with doctor's help. In my personal experience fair & lovely is a very effective product for oily skin problem.

Thanks

Cleansing and Massage – After securing your hair away from your face, all traces of dirt, oil and makeup will be removed with a hypo-allergenic soap or cleanser. Then she will use a light scrub to exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells no matter what skin type you are. Massage stimulates the circulation and brings oxygen to the skin cells and gives you that glow after a facial. It also releases tension and relaxes the facial muscles.

Just a helpful hint from someone who struggled with bad acne issues, and finally figured out how to control it!

If you already have oily skin, and you begin using an astringent, or a soap that dries the skin, you may find your skin will become more oily. When your skin becomes dry, the oil glands try to compensate and "self-hydrate"; causing an abundance of oil.

I would recommend using a facial cleanser in the shower, and before bed, followed up by a non-comedegenic moisturizer after each cleansing. It may seem ironic to moisturize your oily skin, but it helps to neutralize the oil.

I use Mary Kay products, which are very gentle on my skin. There are a variety of products, available for many different skin types. I hope this helps!

I think you used natural remedy better then cosmetic products for your oily skin. I used some natural remedy for my oily skin and I feel good effect on my skin.
If you use salt water spray on your face once during the day and apply egg yolk with a cotton ball on over face, leaven on for 15 minutes then wash with cool water. You feel better.
