More times that I can count on both hands, I've bemoaned the fact that when I was a teen I only had the most stripping of skincare to deal with my oily, acne and pimple prone skin. How I wish that back in the day we youths with gnarly skin could've had a place to go like Beauty Review where we could find honest reviews from people like you in order to be pointed in the direction of the best skincare for our skin type. While I can't turn back time, it's nice to be able to help others in the here and now. So if you struggle with oily skin, here's a regime of skincare products as rated and reviewed by our wonderful Beauty Review community that have been given the kiss of approval and the Top Rated badge to boot!


Trilogy Clarifying Cleansing Gel - rated 4.8/5

You say:  The cleanser is just incredible - it has a scent that adds to the shower experience. It leaves skin feeling balanced and really clean - without being too clean. Oily or combo folks....this range is for you! BR Member - ScottlishLass


Thayers Rose Petal Alcohol-Free Toner with Witch Hazel - rated 4.5/5

You say: I use it after cleansing, and it is great for freshening my skin, removing dirt and impurities that cleaning missed, and most importantly for me - removing excess oil. After using it my skin felt clean, moisturised and smoother. BR member - melanie42


Kiehl's Vital Skin-Strengthening Super Serum - 4.7/5

You say: I have been using morning and night, I have found my skin to be less oily and alot of my fine lines are disappearing which is great and I would definitely recommend this product. BR Member - SandyGedge


Olay Moisturising Lotion - 4.3/5

You say: I have oily, dry skin and breakout easily. Olay does not clog my pores and does not add to the oiliness. It is light and gentle and makes my skin feel great. It spreads on easily. I absolutely love it. BR Member - sonyaem


Trilogy Mineral Radiance Mask - rated 4.7/5

You say: I have oily skin which is also pimple and acne prone, so I was amazed by the immediate results. The redness and the size of my pimples and acne diminished after every use. The scarring I had from old pimples and acne also appeared to be lighter. BR Member - stephxo


Dr LeWinns Facial Polishing Gel - rated 4.6/5

You say: Using this product felt like I was pampering myself. My skin felt gently cleansed and cared for. I also noticed a visible reduction in the black heads on my nose which I was really impressed with. BR Member - tabucutie


La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Anti-Shine Dry Touch Facial Sunscreen SPF50+ - rated 4.6/5

You say: I was doing heavy labour in the sun, dripping sweat and wiping my face for 5 hours. Not a single speck of sunburn on my face, so I can vouch for the sun protection aspect of this suncreen with certainty. As for the anti shine aspect....well, have I found a holy grail? YES Oh my gosh I can't believe how amazing this product is, we are talking absolute matte finish, no shine at all, applied under makeup it works like a matte primer and keeps me shine free all day.

My skin in combo/sensitive - I get quite an oily t-zone though and occasional breakouts. Really recommend the La Roche Posay sunscreen for oily/combo skins!

I don't suffer from oily skin , but sometimes use toners or similar to take any oil away that might be there before apply sticky hydrating patches or face masks ,
