Skin Care Routine for Oily Skin

For as long as I can remember, I've always had oily skin.  If you're skin is like mine, then I'm sure you know that not every beauty facial product will work for your skin.  Too much oil in one product may have your facing looking like a grease basket and nobody wants that.  You have to be very careful when picking the right product for your skin type, but it's not always that easy.  After you've picked your products, the trial and error part begins and if you pick the wrong kind then you just have a disaster waiting to happen and the pimples will be there to prove it.  That's not fun at all, so today I'm here to share with you my favorite routine and skin care products for oily skin that I use daily to help tame my oily skin and prevent unwanted breakouts.  These are what I have been using for several years now and have found to work the best for my oily skin type.
oily skin facial products
One. Clarisonic Mia 2 - hands down the best skin care investment I've ever made.  It cleans deep down into pores so no dirt goes unnoticed.  I use this in the morning and at night before I go to bed and have found the deep pore cleanser brush to be my favorite.

Two. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel - this gel is made specifically for combination oily and oily skin.  This is the only moisturizer that doesn't leave my face feeling greasy.    I apply this after I've washed my face with cleanser on the clarisonic and used the clarifying lotion.  This is my final step before I apply makeup.

Three. St. Ives Apricot Scrub - about three times a week, when I wash my face at night, I'll use this in place of the Clarisonic for a deep scrub.  It is a natural exfoliant that will leave your face glowing and smooth, and it is not greasy at all!

Four. Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3 - this is made specifically for combination oily skin.  I like to use this after I wash my face to wipe off excess dirt prior to applying moisturizer.  I also think it helps take away any shine on my face.

Five. Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Cream Cleanser - I use this as my main facial soap.    I apply it to the Clarisonic twice a day.  This works exceptionally well when washing my face in the morning before applying any makeup.  It leaves a matte finish to my skin.

What is your skin care routine?  Do you have any favorite products you can't live without?  I would love to hear what has worked for you! I'm always open to trying a new good product!
