I will preface my reply by saying that I have dry, sensitive skin, so there’s a good chance that the products that work for me won’t work for you.
Now, that being said, I’ve been very impressed by the new Simple brand skincare products. I’ve tried their cleansing wipes, exfoliating wipes, refreshing cleansing gel and the moisturizing facial wash. They’re relatively inexpensive, especially if you can get them on sale. I hit a buy one, get one 50% off sale at Rite-Aid. The cleansing wipes are even gentle enough that I remove eye makeup as well as face makeup with them.July 7, 2012 at 2:51 am #180160
I have uber oily skin, and I swear by the oil cleansing method. I use it every night both as my cleansing step as well as my makeup removal step. I believe it’s helped to balance out the over production of oil, and has done wonders for the blackhead issue I use to have. I use my own blend, camelia oil based without any castor oil, and a native herb which makes it foam when you at water and massage so it’s easier to rinse off.
However, in the morning I use Etude House Happy Teatime Cleansing Foam. Essentially, you squeeze a pea size amount of the cream product into your hand, add a little water and rub your hands together to create a microfoam which you then use to wash your face. Given it comes in a large 150ml tube and you need only such a tiny amount, it really does go a long way. You can buy it on eBay for $7us (inc shipping), it comes in a few different types, and is surprisingly good given it’s gentle and leaves my skin feeling soft rather than stripped bare (an issue I have with a majority of cleansers).July 7, 2012 at 6:11 pm #180244
So the next question, who is actually going to try something different. I think one of the hardest things to do is try something new when you have something you like. I always think I might like something else better but what if causes me to break out or I don’t like it and waste my money? But, I may just try something new and see what happens. Yep, I’m a rebel…LOLJuly 8, 2012 at 2:55 am #180252
@Leslie Renfro ha, that’s how we beauty geeks are, always trying new things even when what we have works perfectly )
@Aro ha! a fellow OCM user! I have bought a sugar based emulsifier to add to my oil so it would also emulsify and rinse off easily but I am lazy and have no talent for chemistry, I still haven’t used it. So I wipe the oil away with a moslin cloth and hot water, which does steam my pores at the same time.
Etude House is a great Korean brand, you’ve made me curious with this cleanserJuly 17, 2012 at 12:03 am #181443
The Neutrogena Facial Bar ($1.28-$2) and St. Ives ‘Fresh Skin’ Apricot Scrub ($3-$5). Can’t go wrong. The prices will vary depending on location.July 18, 2012 at 5:53 am #181904

I saw the Neutrogena hand held cleaner where you can get different types of pads to accommodate different types of faces. I personally own one and I love it!! I had some real bad chin acne and it was going away with in the next 2 days!! Now this isn’t due to the machine its self lol! But I have the little blue pads that go on it this is very good for morning time to wake you up and it sweeps away what you shedded during the night! At night time they have pads that you can buy to exfoliate they have a coarse like pad and one that isn’t so harsh on the skin I have the second one. It works well! I’m just now liking what I’m seeing!! Hope you find what your looking for!!!September 10, 2012 at 5:31 am #190579
I think Cetaphil is the best and cheap cleanser for oily skin type….. I use the same and believe me it gives me an oil free face for about 3-4 hours which i don’t feel like any other could give.September 20, 2012 at 10:49 pm #192104
The Body Shop’s Seaweed Purifying Facial Cleanser and its matching toner is something I use every night before moisturizing. HG, it is ah-mazing! It both cleanses and mattifies so now when I wake up my face isn’t oily at all when before my face would just feel icky and oily every morning. I also use the Seaweed mask once a month for a deeper clean.September 25, 2012 at 12:43 pm #192716
