FAN MAIL FRIDAYS: Best Moisturizers for Combination-Oily Skin

Hahahahappy Friday to you! :D Here's a super informative FMF, especially for those with combination oily/normal and oil skin! Thanks Dio for this great question!

Hello my favorite beauty blogger! 
What face moisturizer/s do you recommend for combo-oily skin that are available locally. Thank you! Loveee your reviews (seriously) hihihi. :)

Hi Dio!

Thanks for that awesome compliment-really appreciate it. :) Oh, you've just asked the right Beauty Blogger because this is my skin type exactly, although it could get freakishly oily during summer (like now!). Anyway, check out my six tried, tested, and proven moisturizers for our skin type!


It's oil- free so that's one good feature. Another good- feature is it contains a considerable amount of SPF, but doesn't impart any white cast at all. It also contains Green Tea for anti-aging benefits and Aloe Vera to keep skin cool and hydrated.

This is what I call "Ocean in a tub" because it's so cooling to the skin and it hydrates and moisturizes my skin all day without all that goopy, sticky feeling.

More combination normal/oily skin- friendly moisturizers after the jump! ;)

Olay Aquaction, unfortunately, is not available in the Philippines. The closest counterpart is ZA's Total Hydration Dewy Moisturizer: It's like liquid gel and aside from its balancing properties, it freshens skin like a boss too!

This is a lighter version of the original Ultra Facial Moisturizer (which is another fave of mine, specifically for the cold weather) because it's water- based and has a lighter cream texture. It keeps the normal areas of your skin from drying up and balances the sebum on the oily areas without that heavy, sticky feeling.


A recent awesome find of mine. This super light emulsion gets absorbed fast, has a good amount of SPF yet it doesn't leave a sticky, filmy white cast, has a slight cooling effect, and just leaves skin with a thin yet hydrating barrier. It smells pretty good too and retails at around P390.00 only!


This tried and tested moisturizer is a supercharged version of the original, they say. If your work requires you to stay outdoors for a long time, this emollient, hardworking moisturizer will be your best friend. It's a little thick though, so maybe you can try the gel version!

Hope you all liked this post!
