New Skincare Discoveries For Oily Skin!

8 May 2019


Now that we are officially in spring I thought it would be the perfect time to have a spring clean of my skincare routine and introduce some new skincare for oily skin. Some of these products I was very kindly sent and they have made their way into my permanent skincare routine. All of these products I have found are great for my skin and are the best skincare for oily skin.


7th Heaven Orange and Black Lava Exfoliator & Mask 

I have been a big fan of the 7th Heaven brand for years and have used so many of their masks in the past, I've actually written a post about my favourite 7th Heaven products which I wrote way back to when I started blogging. My main favourite products from them are usually their peel off masks as they go on like a dream and don't hurt at all when you remove them, but for this product, it is actually one of their exfoliator and masks all in one product. This mask is designed to brighten dull skin and remove dead skin cells and improve circulation when exfoliating.



The main ingredients in this mask are orange which is high in citric acid which aids in the natural exfoliation of the skin and it also dries out active acne, making it the perfect ingredient for problematic or oily skin. The other ingredient in this mask is the black lava which also helps with the natural exfoliation process which helps to give glowing skin. 



When reading up about this product I knew straight away that I had to try this out for myself and when I did I wasn't disappointed. The fact that its a 2 in 1 product makes it so much better to be because quite frankly I can be pretty lazy with my skincare at times. Being able to exfoliate my skin and wear it as a mask has been a game changer in my skincare routine. My skin feels so much softer and smoother after using this product and I can tell a noticeable difference with the oiliness of my skin as it draws out impurities. The order for more of these masks has just been placed!

Yesto Grapefruit Brightening Transforming Clay Cleanser*

This is one of the products that I was kindly sent a few weeks ago from Yesto and I am so glad that I did get it because of how much I use it to improve my skin. Even though this product isn't specifically skincare for oily skin it has still helped improve the condition of my skin while using it. This cleanser is very different from anything I've tried before because it actually changes colour from pink to yellow while you are cleansing. This product was designed for dull and uneven skin and helps to improve the brightness of the skin. 



The main ingredient in this cleanser is Vitamin C which helps to boost the skins collagen production to give the skin firmer and a more plump appearance. You can probably guess the other main ingredient in this cleanser is Grapefruit which is rich in antioxidants and vitamins that helps to boost the skins natural luminosity.
  

I initially didn't think this cleanser would do much for my skin because it doesn't really claim to help oily skin but from using it a few times I could see an improvement in the appearance of my skin. My favourite part about using this mask has to be the colour changing aspect (sounds childish but it's fun!), I'm not sure which makes it change colour but once you start massaging the product in it instantly changes to yellow. After a few days of using the cleansing, my skin did look a bit more glowy which is great but not oily, which I think is the clay aspect of the cleanser. I want to keep using this cleanser more to see how it can further improve my oily skin. 

Procoal Activated Charcoal Exfoliating Face Scrub*

This product is actually another item that I've been sent recently and I love it so much that I've added it onto this list, I've actually written a full post, Procoal Activated Charcoal Exfoliating Face Scrub Review if you would like to check it out. I was asked a few weeks ago to give this face scrub a go and see if it helps my skin which it definitely has. This exfoliator is designed to polish the skin and dissolve impurities, reveals a softer and more radiant look and helps to clear out deep-seated pores (made for me!). When I first received this product I was excited to try out a product including charcoal as its perfect for oily skin. 



The main ingredients in this face scrub is Activated Charcoal which helps to clear out deep-seated pores, removing pollutants to purify the complexion. Another ingredient in this product is Calendula Oil which helps to restore the skins natural water balance and Allantoin which is a highly effective ingredient that encourages the natural exfoliation of the skin. 



When I first tried out this scrub I didn't think it would make a big difference to my skin but I was quite wrong. This scrub isn't very abrasive which I really like but it still does the job of removing head skin cells and smoothing out the skin. When I first started using this scrub I was a bit surprised that the scrub was actually white and not black but it was and it had bits of charcoal in the mask to act as the exfoliating agent to smooth out the skin. I have now been using this scrub for a few weeks now and the oiliness of my skin has really improved, I still get oily on my t-zone but definitely not as much as I did before.

    1. Clay is such a great ingredient to use if you have oily skin as it just dries out all of the impurities. Thank you x

  6. I love the sound of the YesTo cleanser, although my skin can be sensitive to vitamin C products so I'm not sure if it would work for me. Recently I've been loving an exfoliating mask by Ren x
