5 of the best budget moisturisers for people with oily skin

Yes, you absolutely should moisturise your shiny face!

IF YOU HAVE oily skin, it often feels like moisturising is a waste of time if you’re just going to end up with a big shiny face anyway.

But here’s the thing: if you don’t moisturise, your skin produces yet more oil to make up for the dehydration inside. What you need is an oil-friendly moisturiser – these are the best on offer for under €20.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel, €17.99

This feels so nice on the skin, and melts in straight away leaving no trace of grease or shine. It contains hyraluronic acid, which sounds scary but is actually an excellent oil-controlling ingredient.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo, €17.99

This is a very light moisturiser designed for acne-prone skin that fight spots and clears away dead skin cells. It’s also a nice base for makeup. Two in one!

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Oil Free Moisturiser, €6.99
