Wonderful Products for Oily Skin!

In this blog, we’re discussing the best products on sale for oily skin. When deals hit, it can be overwhelming, but we’ve pinpointed some products to focus on for oily skin. Here are a few options we’ve highlighted for Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales under $50.

Paula's Choice Do More For your Pores Kit (Good for Pores & Anti-Aging)

With this kit, you get two minis for $17, and it’s worth every penny. The Paula’s Choice BHA liquid exfoliant is one of Cassandra’s favorite exfoliators. It is an amazing product for acne, blackheads, sebaceous filaments, etc. However, it should not be used every day, perhaps 2-3 times a week. And like any exfoliant, it needs to be paired with sunscreen. So, this kit comes with an acne-friendly sunscreen too. This is a limited edition set, and it’s a great stocking stuffer. 

Tower 28 Beauty SOS Daily Rescue Facial Spray (Good for Redness & Acne) 

On the days that your skin feels irritated or inflamed, this helps to rebalance and reset the skin. Plus, it helps other products in your skincare routine to penetrate better. 

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Hyaluronic Clay Pore-Tight Facial Mask(Pores/Oily Skin & Hydrating Dryness)

This is different from Glow Recipe’s regular watermelon glow mask. This tightens and firms the pores. It comes with a little scooper, and the product itself smells Divine. Cassandra wouldn’t recommend this for extremely sensitive skin types though. But if you have large pores on your nose, and you get oil in the T-zone, this will wick it right away. This has ingredients such as blueberry, bamboo, and willow which are awesome for the skin. But, it also has kaolin and bentonite clay. These ingredients go into the pores and grab the oil. And when you wash it off it, the oils are removed. So, over a couple of weeks of use, the pores will appear to “tighten up.” There’s no such thing as opening and closing pores, but this produces the desired effect of making the pores look less intense. You can use this once or twice a week, you want to look for an everyday moisturizer.

Biossance Squalane + Probiotic Balancing Gel Moisturizer (oily skin) 


So, you won’t find acne-fighting ingredients in here, but the squalene and probiotics can help support a healthy skin barrier. This is such a nice lightweight moisturizer for oily skin because it balances and hydrates the skin without weighing it down.  

OLEHENRIKSEN Find Your Balance™️ Oil Control Cleanser (Acne/Oily Skin & Pores)

If you have an oily T-zone and large pores, this helps to break down and remove the oil without overly stripping the skin. If have super sensitive skin, this would also be Cassandra’s top pick. This has a fresh, menthol scent. And after using it, your face feels so fresh, clean, and renewed. 

Community Sixty-Six Oil Control Moisturizer with Niacinamide (Good for Acne/Oily Skin & Smoothing Pores) -

This Community 66 moisturizer is phenomenal. Unlike The Inkey List or The Ordinary, Community 66 packs in several potent ingredients to their formulas rather than focusing on one. So, you only need a small amount of this moisturizer to wick away oil on the skin and to smooth over large-looking pores. This is not really a lightweight moisturizer, but it still doesn’t suffocate the skin. This formula includes niacinamide and azelaic acid, which are both amazing for breakout-prone skin, large pores, and oil. Niacinamide (vitamin B3) helps to regulate sebum production, and the azelaic acid helps to reduce buildup, inflammation, and redness. This is phenomenal for nighttime use, but remember – there is really no such thing as shrinking the pores. This product can only make the pores appear smaller. 

Murad Oil and Pore Control Mattifier Broad Spectrum SPF 45 PA++++ (Good for Acne/Oily Skin & Dark Circles & Minimize Pores)


This is wonderful to use during the day, and it is one of the best sunscreens if you are oily or have large pores. This helps to minimize the appearance of pores so well. While most sunscreens are very greasy, this sunscreen actually helps to mattify the skin.
