6 Oil-Control Products for a Shine-Free Face

There’s a fine line between glowing skin and greasy skin. If you struggle with an oily complexion, revamping your skin-care regimen with the right products can help you control the shine and look more glowy than greasy. From cleanser to SPF, read on for the mattifying formulas you need in your routine.

Garnier Green Labs Canna-B Pore Perfecting Serum Cream 

For oily skin types, it can be tricky to find a serum, moisturizer and sunscreen because formulas can often be too thick and greasy. This non-comedogenic formula, which contains niacinamide and cannabis sativa seed oil, is a hybrid of all three products and works to refine pores and combat excess sebum.


Vichy Normaderm PhytoAction Deep Cleansing Gel

This cleanser helps reduce excess shine in just one use. The formula contains salicylic acid, zinc, copper and volcanic water to also help de-clog pores and treat acne. 

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Toner 

After cleanser, follow with a complexion-balancing toner like this one. It’s formulated to visibly reduce excess sebum while leaving skin instantly refreshed. The formula contains a combination of imperata cylindrica root extract and antarcticine to gently remove any excess impurities and oil without stripping skin of moisture.

Kaike Green Tea Clay Mask

Clay helps absorb oil and impurities for a clearer and more mattified complexion. In addition to two types of clay, this mask also contains matcha powder to reduce inflammation and prevent free radical damage. 


SkinCeuticals Physical Matte UV Defense SPF 50 

This broad-spectrum SPF 50 blend is formulated with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. It boasts an oil-absorbing protective base for a matte finish, plus a universal tint to help enhance and even skin tone. It’s one of our favorite products to wear under makeup because the weightless, non-comedogenic mousse texture dries to a powder finish.

Maybelline New York Banana Powder

To ensure that skin stays matte all day, finish off your makeup routine with a setting powder. This one blurs pores, prevents shine and locks in makeup.
