I've struggled with oily skin for the majority of my life. I've used products from Mary Kay, Avon, and even Origins. While not all of them worked, it wasn't a total loss because there were some aspects from each line that were ok. A friend and fellow makeup artist colleague told me one day "stop fighting the oil and use products that help control it". Makes sense now but back then I was more focused on winning the battle. As I've gotten older I've noticed that my skin is not as oily as it use to be and I have come to accept it.
As a makeup artist I look for products for both myself and the client. I always like to try products on myself first so I can see how it feels, moves, and looks and therefore give my honest opinion when using it (or not). A friend/mentor recommended Kiehl's moisturizer to me and I'm now in love. Even with my combination/oily skin it works fabulous for the winter months. This moisturizer is very lightweight and absorbs into the skin just as it says. When I apply foundation on top there is no greasy feeling and it doesn't give a shiny effect in photos.
The price for this moisturizer is a bit high but well worth it. I highly recommend this product. There are other products to cater to other skin types as well so visit your local Kiehl's store or go online at www.kiehls.com
