Moisturiser for cloggy skin

(12 Posts)

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.

You can buy a salmon oil to squirt on any dogs food, apparently it’s great for the skin

I like the La Roche Posay ones....

I came on to see the suggestions but I’m too busy wetting myself laughing at AsMuchUseAsAMarzipanDildo’s user name to write an appropriate post...

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 smile

I think you need to exfoliate too probably.

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.
