Your Skincare Routine for Oily Skin

Banish breakouts and say goodbye to shine with our pick of the best products for oily skin and a handy step-by-step skincare routine.



Kick off your shine-free skincare journey by cleansing your skin to remove any build-up of oil and dirt. This will not only instantly reduce shine, it will also help to prepare your skin for absorbing what’s coming next – whether that’s a serum or oil-free moisturiser. Try Ultra Facial Cleanser for Oily Skin Types, formulated with Lemon Extract and Desert Plant Extract. This cleanser leaves skin feeling clean and refreshed. Lather then rinse with water before gently drying skin with a towel or tissue.

⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆5-star review: “I really love how this cleanser helps reduce the amount of oiliness on my skin. I also love how it’s not too harsh for my sensitive skin and doesn’t irritate my skin like most other cleansers do.” AndriaRose19, September 2019 –Click here for more reviews.



Follow with Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque, formulated with Amazonian White Clay and Aloe Vera. This deep-cleansing face mask for oily skin draws out oil, dirt and toxins that clog pores. Apply a thick and visible amount onto your face, and then leave on for 10 minutes – or less if it starts to dry. To remove, massage with warm water until all traces are removed. You can use this mask up to three times a week.

There’s a reason it’s our best-selling mask! Don’t take our word for it. Here’s one of its 5-star reviews…“Instant results, I suffered from blocked pores and nothing seemed to help but after using this just once the majority of my pores are cleared and barely visible.

You may think oily or combination skin and moisturisers don’t go hand in hand, but hydration is key to every skincare routine in order to strengthen your skin barrier. The trick is using a small amount of the right product: less is more with moisturisers. Try Ultra Facial Gel-Cream for Oily Skin Types. This non-greasy moisturiser feels fresh on the skin with an instant cooling effect. and is both fast-absorbing and lightweight . The Oil Eliminator 24 Hour Lotion is your go-to moisturiser for oily skin, thanks to its non-comedogenic formula that absorbs sweat and excess oil to leave skin looking less shiny and visibly reduce your pores.

⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆5-star review for Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel-Cream: “I've been using it for a year now and no longer have oily skin, no shine, no build up over the day and it's a much better base for make up." Workinprogress, August 2019. Click herefor more reviews.



Make sure to never leave home without SPF. Even on a cloudy day, sunscreen is key for protecting against premature skin ageing. Use Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Aqua Gel sun cream in factor 50 after your moisturiser, before you apply foundation or other make up (should you wear any). Dab the product across the face, and gently spread over the skin in circular motions. Its non-comedogenic gel formula protects and hydrates normal and oily skin types, while leaving skin looking smooth and shine-free.
