Avon oil absorbing sheets...

I can only assume that with my title, you know what I am about to rant about.

A coworker sells Avon. While I'm not a HUGE fan of the products, it's cheap, and generally gets the job done. So, I opted to buy their oil absorbing sheets. While at work for 9 hours, my already-oily face likes to get REALLY oily. Especially when I wear makeup. So I buy the sheets (they were pretty cheap, about $2.00 or so). Yeesh! I have to use about 5 of them before my skin feels oil free! The normal ones I get at target I would use maybe 2 and I'm good to go. But the Avon ones are just rediculous. It feels like tracing paper but a *tad* stiffer (hehe, I said stiffer). They work....eventually. But DANG!

I have very oily skin, ...

I have very oily skin, too. I'm very, very allergic to anything I try to clean my face with. I get hives all over my face when I use anything. I have tried everything and I even search the internet for free samples so I don't waste my money.
What do you use to clean oily skin? Maybe you use stuff that I never heard of.

The BEST thing I have ever ...

The BEST thing I have ever used for my skin was a face wash from Origins; Dr. Weil Plantidote face wash. http://www.origins.com/templates/products/sp_nonshaded.tmpl?CATEGORY_ID=...

That cleared up my skin SO nicely. It moisturized my face without making it greasy.

The lotion I used that works great is also from Origins; Matte Scientist. http://www.origins.com/templates/products/sp_nonshaded.tmpl?CATEGORY_ID=...

That lotion has white clay in it and keeps the oil from oozing from your pores for a good portion of the day. Even when I would have an oily face after work and I would use this lotion...my face would be totally oil free. It seemed to have stopped working for me after about a week. I don't know if my skin got used to it or not. But when it WAS working, it ROCKED! I totally used up ALL of the facewash. The day it ran out and I had to use regular soap...the next morning my face blew up in acne. It was like my face was so clean and pure using it that the moment I stopped my skin freaked out. But I will defenitly be buying it again. They're a little pricey but also completely refundable if you don't like it.

Cool! Thanks, darlin'!

Cool! Thanks, darlin'!

girl girl! You crack me ...

girl girl! You crack me up! OLAY has wonderful products for your type of skin - I like them b'cuz they are truly affordable, and work. I am much older than you but even when i was younger and had the skin issues .... OLAY rokked it. I think that they have a website like (Not poitive but if you Google they'll give you the correct one) myolay.com. Something like that. AND ... the best part is the products are available at Target, CVS, Wal-Mart - where the prices are affordable. Been using OLAY for over 20 years and love them! Conana, will forward pic to yur email - try it! huggz!

Thanks, shamrox, but I've used Olay and i get hives from that, too. My skin sucks. :::off to cry:::

I'm always up for trying ...

I'm always up for trying new things. My skin is very tempermental and the slightest change in diet, exercise, weather, stress, product, etc...makes it go psychotic. That Origins face wash was the first thing that actually kept my skin in check. I loved it! But I will certainly try Olay. I think that's one of the only things I haven't tried.

I tried Avon stuff....Mary ...

I tried Avon stuff....Mary Kay..expensive stuff from Younkers..etc...

I have very oily skin also and used to use Ten o Six astringent...that stuff was the BOMB!!

Now that really dates me cos they haven't made that stuff for years..lol.

To cut my oily skin (since nothing else has done the job since Ten o six)..I use Sea Breeze.

You can't imagine what my cotton pad looks like after I use it on my face..but afterwards...my face is squeaky clean...

And then I use Oil of Olay to moisturize.

I get compliments all the time on my skin...and I hate to tell them to just plain use the old school stuff and quit with all the expensive crap...but hell..at 45..it works for me

Hmm, interesting. I shall ...

Hmm, interesting. I shall look into that next time I'm out buying new products. Right now I'm using Aveeno foaming face wash and Aveeno night cream. So once that's gone, I'll check it out. :-)
