Hi everybody! I'm new here, and while many of you have your favorite brands and products, I have just started a job that pays well enough for me to be able to buy skin care products that aren't from the drug store! I'm pretty excited about this!

I'm 21, and I have extremely oily skin, and I break out easily. I do have one little patch of skin on my cheek that gets really dry. Can anyone recommend any products or brands for me? I'm overwhelmed!
Thank you!

Hiya Lynnec! Let's see, there are so many solutions. Many people seem to dig either Decleor Ylang Ylang or Dr. Hauschka Normalizing Day Oil to help control the oilies -- these products are both oils, yes, but the theory is that applying an oil helps send your skin the signal that it needn't produce so much oil itself. I find it's also helpful because it hydrates your flaky bits at the same time (I've never tried Decleor but I love Dr. H).

Another staple, for me at least, is Jurlique Silk Dust. I have the Rose version, and I find it to be the best oil-absorbing powder I've EVER used, it's really quite phenomenal. You might even want to try the Lavender, since you're quite oily.

Let's see... some love Yonka Juvenil for on-the-spot acne treatment, though I personally haven't gotten to try it yet. Others love Jan Marini Bioclear stuff, another I haven't tried.

I'm sure there are lots more that others will suggest, but here's a start! Smile Good luck and welcome!

I love Decleor ylang ylang oil, it worked wonders on my oily skin and I used it just at night then the Hydra Floral moisturizer in the tube during the day. I was a constant blotter before using the ylang ylang. My skin is a little drier now that the weather is cooling off so I switch to the Decleor neroli oil and coconut oil (from the health food store) for nighttime. Hope this helps.

Wow! Thanks for all the suggestions!
A friend gave me Dr. Renaud Intervention Seboregulating Cream. I've been using it for the past few nights and I love it!! Any recommendations for something for day time that works well with the Seboregulating Cream?
