3 Moisturizers My Oily Skin Loves

Let’s talk moisturizers, shall we?

3 Moisturizers My Oily Skin Loves

I know, I know, when you have oily skin, the last thing you want to hear about is slathering on more moisture. But trust me, finding the right moisturizer for oily skin is like finding that perfect cup of tea – when you do, it’s a game-changer. These are three of my absolute favorite moisturizers that keep my oily skin feeling fresh, hydrated, and happy.

COSRX All in One Snail Cream

Okay, let’s address the snail in the room – yes, this moisturizer has snail mucin as its star ingredient. The thought of slathering snail goo on my face initially made my skin crawl (pun intended). It’s not every day you willingly put snail secretion on your face, right? But surprise, surprise – my skin couldn’t get enough of it! Despite its slimy texture, it’s so hydrating and absorbs like a dream. I swear, my skin practically begs for it every day. It’s a staple in my skincare routine!

Not gonna lie, a little goes a long way with this one. If I go overboard, my face starts feeling a bit heavy. So, during the day, I keep it light, and at night, I go all-in for that extra oomph. It also has Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Allantoin, and Arginine, which equals to it’s loaded with a bunch of good-for-the-skin stuff. Plus, it’s from a Korean brand, and we all know they’re masters in skincare sorcery.

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask EX

Next up, I have the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask EX Sleeping Micro Biome – talk about a mouthful! Anyway, this is not just your average moisturizer. It's also an overnight mask that works its magic while you catch some Z’s. It has that luxurious gel-like formula and I feel so fancy whenever I put this on my skin. I honestly expected the formula to be thick, it was surprisingly lightweight. In a few minutes, it dried down completely without leaving behind a sticky film. Also, shoutout to all the Tranexamic Acid, Squalane and Beta-Glucan in this baby. I wake up with skin that feels so refreshed and radiant, ready to take on whatever the day throws at it!

COSRX Hydrium Green Tea Aqua Soothing Gel Cream 

And finally, a classic favorite that’s been a go-to for ages. The moment I saw it, I just knew it was going to steal my heart. The COSRX Hydrium Green Tea Aqua Soothing Gel Cream is like a breath of fresh air for my oily skin, especially on those scorching hot days. It’s light, it's soothing, and best of all, it doesn’t feel like I’ve dunked my face in a vat of grease.

The star ingredient here is green tea, which is the elixir of life when it comes to skincare and also known for its calming and antioxidant properties. What’s not to love about green tea? And in a hot and humid country, soothing and cooling are exactly what my skin craves. It also leaves my skin feeling soft, supple, and hydrated! The gel texture really sinks into the skin in seconds, making it the perfect choice for those of us with oily skin who don’t want to feel like we’re wearing a heavy moisturizer.

  4. Fellow oil-skin peep here! Thanks for the recs - will definitely check them out, especially since they're quite easy to get here. I'm currently using Benton Deep Green Tea Lotion that works wonder for oily skin - not too greasy or heavy, if you know what i mean, but do its job in hydrating my skin enough. All the reviews out there are mostly from normal-to-dry skin people that feels that it's not hydrating enough, but it's a win for me!
