As long as I can remember I’ve been in search for the perfect beauty products for my super(!) oily yet sensitive skin.
Surprisingly I almost never had problems like spots or redness even though my skin is that oily but nonetheless it’s totally annoying if every blush looks stained after an hour or If every foundation is quickly running down your face.
So over the last 10 years I’ve tried a whole bunch of “anti-shine”, “matte”, “oil-free” products and in the end I came to think that “my” product still needs to be invented or that there is simply nobody else who has got such a strange combination of skin-types…
Since 2010 I’ve been therefore simply using dm’s Balea UREA series because value for money seemed good and my skin felt nice besides the usual oiliness.
One month ago I started a new trial run with La Roche-Posay’s Effaclar series which sounded really promising with its description for oily AND sensitive skin. All the products are soap-free, alcohol-free, colorant-free and paraben free and after four weeks of using three different products, I can say that my skin is considerably(!) less oily and that I’m truly happy about the whole new look and feel of my skin
Never thought that such an improvement would be possible so I’m definitely sticking to the Effaclar products for now!
Do you have experiences with oily skin or the Effaclar series?
Do you know any bloggers who wrote about a similar skin-”problem”?
Always seems to me as if most people rather have problems with too dry skin so I would be curious to hear if you also know any blog-posts about the opposite…
