When it comes to which choosing a moisturiser to suit your skin tone, there’s almost too much information out there.
It’s confusing and completely unhelpful. And quite frankly, I’m getting a break out just thinking about it.
The best moisturisers for acne-prone skin won’t suit dry-skinned ladies, just as a moisturiser for oily skin might not cut it if you’ve got combination skin. See what I mean about confusing?
Thankfully, the Mamamia office is full of ladies with different skin types who know about face stuff.
LISTEN: Zoe Foster-Blake shares her best beauty advice for busy women like us! (post continues after audio…)
Here, they share their best moisturisers to get you on the right track:
Best moisturiser for oily skin
Valentina’s pick: Dermalogica Active Moist 100mL, $80.50.
Let’s get the most expensive one out the way first, shall we?
Valentina has been using this product to control her oily skin for years. She finds it absorbs super quickly but still leaves her skin feeling soft. And the formula feels creamy, as opposed to a gel texture a lot of moisturisers for oily skin have.
Best moisturiser for acne-prone skin
Tiffany's pick: Thursday Plantation Clarifying Oil 60mL, $13.69.
Tiffany discovered face oil two weeks ago, after thinking (like many of us) that putting oil on her face would make her acne worse. For her, it's actually been the complete opposite. She's noticed a big difference in the texture of her skin and the appearance of acne scars in the short amount of time she's been using it.
