  • Use St.Ives facial exfoliant for SENSITIVE skin. Works great!

  • I am too. I sell Avon and these products really help. Under your makeup wear Magix Face Perfector. Its a primer that keeps you shine free and makes your makeup stay put all day.
    For a cleanser I really like the Clearskin Professional Deep Pore Cleansing Scrub. For foundation use IDEAL SHADE Cream-To-Powder Foundation. Its good for oily skin bc its a one in all and you don't need to have layers and layers when you have oily skin it makes it worse. For me anyway! You can try them at my webstore use code fsany for free shipping :)

  • You can also use blotting papers during the day to absorb the oil and it won't mess up your makeup. You can get them anywhere, I use the Clinique ones.

  • I always used to have a really oily t-zone, to the point that during the day I used to take kleenex to mop the oil off.  

    I am now using Arbonne products and have seen a huge difference once my pores were no longer blocked and the moisturizer could actually be absorbed. That took about 2 weeks for me and a deep pore cleanse.

    I am using the anti-aging line but they have a great new line called FC5 that includes products for oily/combination skin. Here is a link if you would like to take a look.  FC5 products

    I use their makeup primer and then the Mineral Powder foundation to keep everything really light..  Let me know if you would like to know more about the products.
