Home Skincare


Hi there Beautiful,
I have always had combination skin where my T-zone would usually get oily and rest of my face would be dry. But from the past 6 months, my skin has been very oily and I started getting breakouts. So I changed a few of my skincare products to suit my skin and after all the trial and error, I’v come up with 5 skin care essentials for oily skin. Hope it helps anyone who has oily skin, some of these products are suited for all skin types even for the sensitive skin beauties and dry skin beauties will know what to avoid ;). 

All the products mentioned are bought by me, mostly from Nykaa.com and all the reviews are my honest opinion and in no way this post is advertised :). Also if you haven’t signed up to Nykaa yet , then I can refer you and that way both of us can score 5000 reward points. Do let me know in the comments section if you want me to refer you along with your email id 🙂

I will list the products in the order of their usage.

1) Cetaphil Gentle skin cleanser I regret not knowing about this product before. It is so gentle, does not cause breakouts, infact it controlled my acne after continuous use, doesn’t make my skin super dry after washing which most of the face wash do, excellent for people with sensitive skin and also suitable for all the skin types. I use it first to remove my makeup, even the eye makeup and I must say it removes almost 75% of my makeup very easily. This does not lather a lot and does not have any scent and that is a good thing :). I have already emptied 2 bottles of this. To try out, I bought the smaller size of 125ml but it came for a good 2 months until it was empty. I also noticed breakouts after a week or so when I ran out of it. There is also a oily skin version of this, but it’s expensive and when this one does the job, I did not feel the need to go for the other one. So ladies if you are looking to invest in a good gentle cleanser then go for this one.

2) Lotus Herbals Teatree & Cinnamon Anti-acne oil control face wash – On the days I have less makeup on, I only use the Cetaphil cleanser. But for days where I have almost full face makeup, I use Lotus Herbals Teatree wash . It really helps to control oil and Teatree which is a fantastic anti-oxidant, helps control acne. It does not feel dry at all after washing. It has these micro fibre crystals in them which helps in scrubbing of the dead skin cells without being harsh on the skin. Comes in a tube packaging and one tube of 120 gms is good enough for upto 3 months :).

3) Jovees cucumber skin toner – This toner is the best for any skin type. It’s basically cucumber extract, Aloe Vera and Chamomile. You cannot go wrong with this combination. It smells good just like cucumber and gets absorbed into the skin real quick. It comes in a 100ml spray bottle, you spray a few drops on a cotton pad and rub it on your face gently. This way it removes all the excess dirt , oil and makeup that your facewash could not remove.

4) Lotus Herbals Alphamoist oil-free moisturiser – Another excellent product from Lotus herbals for oily skin :). People with oily skin usually think that moisturiser will make their skin more oily but no matter what your skin type is, you should never skip moisturiser. Instead go for a oil free one like this as it gets absorbed within seconds you apply it. It also has a mild fragrance which is a plus point. It provides the right amount of moisture for your skin and can be used during all the seasons. I totally recommend this product.

5) The Body Shop Tea tree face mask – The main reason for me to buy this is Teatree. It is excellent for blemished skin. I apply this once in 7 or 14 days to pamper my skin. Apply it on your face and leave it on for about 20 minutes and then rinse off. You will instantly feel a cooling effect and it smells good too :). It helps fade all the blemish marks. Also I use it on zits and leave it on overnight and by the next morning, my zit would have dried off. It is quite expensive, but one box comes for a good 4 to 5 months. The only downside is it is not easily available in India. I have mentioned a similar product from The Body Shop India site. There is free shipping offer going on currently 🙂

One Bonus product I want to mention as I have been using it regularly. This is Bajaj Nomarks cream and it is suitable for all skin types. Very affordable , easily available in all medical stores and supermarkets. I have seen my acne blemishes fading after continuous use. I always buy the smaller tube of 12g so it is travel friendly. You can use it prior to applying your makeup on the day and every night before applying the moisturiser.
Price : 60 Rs

So these are my recommendations for oily skin. I purchased most of the products mentioned from Nykaa.com. Hope it helps 🙂 Do let me know in the comments section what products you use and find helpful. 
Until then,
WWGal 🙂
