If you’re an oily skin girl like me, shine has probably become one of your worst enemies. Unfortunately, wearing a heavy, oil-controlling foundation with a flat-matte finish can feel uncomfortable and cakey—especially if you know you’ll be sweating more than average. While BB creams are traditionally associated with having more hydrating formulas and glowier finishes, if you’re looking to get the fuss-free and fast application, along with a slew of skincare-enhanced benefits, you’ll love these mattifying complexion multi-taskers that will stay put all day long.
When our skin’s oil production reaches its peak high, pores become open up more, which can lead to exacerbated skin congestion, increased texture, and blackheads. Opting for an oil-controlling and non-comedogenic formula is essential if you’re prone to looking like an oil slick by mid-morning.
These sweat-proof and oil-absorbing formulas are not only great because of the addition of skincare ingredients (including SPF), but they’re also great options for those who prefer a higher-coverage foundation look, but don’t exactly love the often heavy feeling or cakey looking result that comes with them. Here are some of our favorite affordable options for oily skin.
