My skin is oily and I've never bothered with moisturiser before but as I'm getting older I feel I need too. Most moisturisers seem to clog my pores and cause blackheads, spots or those little white spots. Any recommendations?
I find Ren’s Clearcalm 3 gel moisturiser really good. It comes out like a very lightweight lotion but is meant to rehydrate your skin with gel not oil. It’s never broken me out. Although very pricey £25 it lasts me the best part of a year.
I use the Liz Earle moisturiser that is suitable for oily skin. I have always had oily T-zone but if I don’t moisturise my forehead can get very dry this time of year so I find this is a good compromise, light but still enough moisturising. I do find though that a weekly exfoliation and clay mask (I use Liz Earle also) really helps to clear out my skin
Thanks everyone for the suggestions, I've gone for Liz Earle as they do a great looking tester kit with mini versions of the products and also added a mini clay mask, so I can try them out to see how my skin reacts without investing £££. They also have free delivery today til midnight.
