sunscreen + oil control

Postby thundersun » Fri, 03 Dec 2004 11:24 am

Can anyone recommend me some sunscreen products that have oil controlling properties?
I have oily face hence i want a sunscreen that can 'oil control' my face. Normally by the mid day my face will be oily .Especially so after meals. I hope to get a product that will make my face looks less shiny and will reduce the size of the pores on my face.

Would appreciate any advice given .Thanks

i've used the nuskin white UV base, its very light and non-greasy.... and what i do to prevent oil is to apply a layer of oil-aborbing foundation...

a oil-controlling product can only do soo much, u have to use other pruducts to control te oiliness and bring your face to a stable condition. like your cleanser, toner and moisturiser, are they for oily skin?
with a cleanser for oily/combination skin, it helps to prevent your skin from being stripped of its natural oil, and its strong enough to clean the oil and dirt.

a mattefying toner, will help to give radiance and also help to tighten your pores on the face, and make them less visible

there are other products that u can try to reduce the size of pores

I used to use MAC and it clogged my pores. I just changed to SK2 whitening foundation. It's much better. Although I can't control the amount of oil my face produced, it seems lessened. Best of all, when I wash off my foundation at the end of the day, because of the piteria in the foundation, my face actually felt nourished and not clogged. It also has a spf 23 i think.

I use VICHY sunscreen. I have very oily skin but this doesn't clog or makes skin oily. I have an extra tube, let me know if you are keen, selling at only $20, you could also apply it on your body to prevent uneven skin tones.
