Gift Guide: Oily Skin Edition

Shop for all the oily folks in your life whilst jamming on our moderately banging, ADHD inspired playlist


Oil can be hard. We all have that friend or family member that never gets a reprieve from the blotting papers. Listen, we’re there too and we want to give you the gift of the gift guide of getting the damn thing under control. Sebum production can be annoying, but the reality is that is completely normal. Excess oil can lead to a myriad of other problems that lead to more situations that need solving like whiteheads, blackheads, and ye’ old cystic acne. Finding the right ingredients and products can be life-changing for oily skin-friends to help them layoff the blotting sheets.

Here are some products we love. Send this to your friend with buttery skin and/or your friend who loves good music.


DAY DREAMER SUPER GENTLE FACE WASH

Stripping the skin of oils is a sure-fire way to create even more sebum that replaces the old. The frustrating part is that to keep your skin healthy, you should be cleansing twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening to avoid oil-induced acne.  

Day Dreamer Super Gentle Face Wash is a dreamy cream cleanser that provides nourishment instead of leaving skin dehydrated. It replaces the gross oil that’s been washed away with rosehip oil to firm and hydrate, along with tamanu which is rich in fatty acids and protects against free-radicals like pollution which can often lead to breaking down your skin’s barrier, and, you guessed it, causing more oil production.

The wonderful thing about this cleanser is that it’s so gentle that anyone can use it. It’s a little cloud of gentle creaminess that makes washing our faces a little bit more enjoyable.

RAEL DAILY ZEN

When it comes to the remainder of your skincare routine and oil, it’s important to use products that provide the nourishment you need throughout your day. We love toning, in fact, we’re pretty passionate about it. It’s a chance to make sure your skin is rid of unseen grime, plus it balances your PH, and if it’s off, it can lead to excess oiliness.

Using Daily Zen helps replenish moisture that might have been lost during the cleansing process. It’s packed with Rael’s H30 complex that delivers hyaluronic acid to provide deep hydration, leaving skin ready for whatever’s next in your skincare routine.

HERBAL DYNAMICS BEAUTY CACAO AND CHAMOMILE CLEARING MASK

Clay can be a fickle ingredient. For some people it's a miracle that instantly detoxes pores, for others it can be intensely drying and leave skin feeling tight and irritated. Herbal Dynamics Beauty Cacao and Chamomile Clearing Clay Mask is the perfect combination of powerful clay ingredients, balanced with calming, mineral-rich ingredients.

This mask helps deep clean pores as sulfur and salicylic acid reduce excess oil and improve the appearance of blemishes. Cacao provides rich antioxidants that target signs of aging while chamomile and ginseng soothe.

Leave it on for 10 minutes and it leaves skin feeling bright, a little more even, and rid of oils that cause breakouts. The best thing about it? You can use it as a spot treatment as well. We like to dab this mask on active breakouts, leave it on overnight, and wake up feeling a little more hopeful about our healing acne marks.

YUNI ACTIVE CALM FIRMING FACIAL MOISTURIZER

We love the ingredients that Yuni Active Calm Firming Face Moisturizer delivers. It’s antioxidizing, moisture-delivering, and calms while helping plump skin that leads to a reduction in fine lines and inflammation. Don’t let the word “firming” scare you off. We believe that skincare should always be approached from a proactive perspective, rather than a reactive one, and the ingredients in Active Calm suit skin’s needs at any age.

Edelweiss Plant Stem Cells help to deliver powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits deep within the skin. Packed with leontopodium acids, in nature, it’s a small white flower helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and provides a plumper, firmer complexion. Organic Buriti Oil is the richest known source of beta-carotene and is full of healthy essential fatty acids and vitamin E to protect the skin, reduce irritation, and restore.

It’s fast-absorbing and doesn’t leave skin feeling greasy and tacky, which when it comes to oily skin, we’d all rather avoid.
