Wish List: Products for Oily & Acne-Prone Skin

12 Dec

Hi readers! I’m feeling festive since September! I’ve listed products that I’m very interested to try out. I’ll probably get them real soon. I’m in a “haul ban” because I bought a lot of stuff these past few months. I’m most interested in these products. I still have a long list. I just dont want to have a long post.

Most products mentioned below are specifically for oily and acne prone skin. I categorized them according to their use; cleanser, moisturizer, mask, spot treatment and sunscreen. The prices are included too in case you’re interested. 🙂


THE BODY SHOP Tea Tree Cool & Creamy Wash – P395
I saw this in their store last Christmas season when I got the tea tree facial wash and toner. I searched for reviews on it. Bloggers say that it really does not dry out their skin / no tight feeling.

SNOE Shoo-zit! Wash Away Those Zits Deep Cleansing Acne Wash – P349
I want to try this for SO long. It has few ingredients but some of them are antibacterial for acne like honey, salicylic acid, mulberry and Purefix. There are other cleansers that have few ingredients too but are useless and do not even clean the skin.


LUSH Enzymion – approx. P1,200
I watched Lush hauls and their SAs recommended Enzymion for Youtubers who have oily skin. From the reviews, this cream mattifies the skin. It has cocoa butter, avocado oil and evening primrose oil. Hmmmm, I’m not sure about that. We’ll see if ever a generous SA will give me a sample.

LUSH Full of Grace serum bar – £8.25 (approx. P586.46)
A serum in a solid form? This is such an innovative idea in my opinion. It has 2 butters which aren’t really for oily skin but I still want to try it. Why? because it has calamine powder. Calamine powder is the main ingredient in my holy grail cleanser. Maybe I should get this when I’m older.. older meaning less oily skin. 😉 This is not available in the Philippines. I’ll order from the U.K. website if ever since they have cheaper price compared to our neighbor countries.

LUSH Vanishing Cream – approx. P1,500
They claim that this is their lightest moisturizer. Most youtubers who have oily skin love it. They said it sinks in quickly. It has witch hazel and rose water to calm the skin. But it has butter and oils just like Enzymion, Full of Grace and other Lush moisturizers. I hope I’ll get a sample one day before I can finally decide to get a full size pot.

BURT’S BEES Acne Solutions Daily Moisturizing Lotion – P1,450
I was randomly browsing an online shop and saw this. It has salicylic acid, willow bark extract and witch hazel. Those 3 ingredients are tempting me. There are also other ingredients that I’m not familiar with so I’m still skeptical to get a full size bottle. Why are the stores in the Philippines rarely give out samples? 😦



MARIO BADESCU Drying Mask – P1,145
I was looking for other face masks with calamine since I can’t get my hands on Lush’s Catastrophe Cosmetic fresh face mask. This one has few ingredients and it has what I’m looking for! It’s only 50g though.


SNOE Shoo-zit! Dip & Dry Acne Drying Lotion – P449
This is like your Etude House and Mario Badescu spot treatment. The only difference is its affordability. You’ll get the same 20ml. Dip a cotton bud and gently apply it on the spots.


VMV Hypoallergenics Armada Face Cover 30 – P815
My skin is so thin especially on the face. I get dark spots easily even if I dont touch blemishes. I have never used a sunscreen in my life aside from makeup’s spf. I know it’s bad. I’m skeptical to use one. My skin is not used to creams and  it can only handle up to spf 30. Based on the reviews, this VMV product doesn’t feel heavy on the skin.

    I hate that tight feeling on the skin too! It feels like a layer of your skin has been stripped off…

      My current cleanser is so drying that it feels like I had botox.😅 But I dont mind since it’s really effective. 🙂 I’ll return to non drying cleansers soon. 😊

      I hope so too. I only tried few spot treatments from local brands and they worked well. 🙂

    I’m going to pick up that body shop cleanser for sure, I use the foaming face wash at the minute but I will add that one to my routine. Thank you for the suggestions!

      I saw your post and I’m going to add your current foaming wash in my routine. 🙂
