Proactiv Oil Free Moisturizer Review
A common misconception for people with oily skin is that using a moisturizer will enhance the problem, causing skin to become greasier, and having foundation last throughout the day basically a myth. This isn’t necessarily true- constantly stripping the skin of oils by using toners and such can actually make the problem worse, as it tricks your skin into thinking it’s overly dry, which results in even more oil production. Oily skin sufferers need to use a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer that will give the skin the moisture it needs without weighing it down. Proactiv’s Oil Free Moisturizer is the perfect candidate for this job!
This is one of the most lightweight moisturizers I own, and it even seems to help mattify the skin slightly (Not as much as something like Urban Decay DeSlick would, mind you, but it does help). It also is a great primer for your foundation, as well as perfect for daywear because of how light it is, and how quickly it sinks into the skin. This moisturizer also has SPF 15, which is so important for keeping skin looking youthful throughout the years. So if you have issues with oily skin, make sure to use a light-weight, oil free moisturizer in general, but if you are looking for a new one, this one definitely gets the job done!
