oily skin- sorted!

Oily skin is pretty much a given during teenage years, but if puberty has firmly ended and your face is still slicker than the North Sea after a tanker spill, you may want to know what action to take. These products could become your skin-saviours....


Billy Jealousy Liquidsand Exfoliating Facial Cleanser 

£24, 236ml, mankind.co.uk

Just enough scrub to see off dead skin cells, dirt and grime, without leaving your face raw. A healthy dose of antioxidants will give you a bit of a glow rather than a high-gloss sheen. 


Nip+Man Scrubbing Facial Wash

£5.95, 150ml, Boots

Caffeine helps energise skin- perfect for those early mornings, and papaya extract moisturises without adding to any oily-skin issues.

Kiehl's Oil Eliminator Shine Control Toner For Men

£18, 180ml, kiehls.co.uk

Toner isn't just one for the ladies. A quick spray and wipe after washing will cool the skin. A great desk standby for air-conned offices which tend to kick oil production into overdrive. 

Anthony Instant Fix Oil Control

£28, 85g, uk.spacenk.com

Whether it's an oily T-zone or a gleaming bald head, a quick rub with a dab of this solution will take the shine factor down in seconds.

FaceB4 Anti-Bacterial Serum

£9.95, 30ml, Boots

Rub a little into the skin after washing for long-lasting anti shine results. Helps to calm inflamed skin too, so perfect for zitty teens or stressed out skin.

Crystal Clear No Shine Serum

£42, 50ml, crystalclear.co.uk and debenhams.com

Big pores a big problem? After purifying the skin and removing excess shine, this moisturising serum will minimise open pores for a calmer looking face (just try not to look angry for best results).

Ren Clarimatte T-Zone Balancing Gel Cream

£21, 50ml, marksandspencer.com

Japanese Konjac root and Salicilin help combat pesky breakouts and dulls down any oily shine even after many hours.

Refinery Face Mask

£27, 75ml, the-refinery.com

If you need convincing about a once-a-week face mask routine, this is the product to win you over. After a few minutes on the face you'll get a satisfyingly warm tingle, and once washed off skin feels exhilarated and refreshed. Breakouts gradually reduce with use too.
