When I was in my teens I had super, super dry skin. I'm going to say it lasted pretty much up until about 3 years ago. Now (I'm 35) it's nothing but oil. It's gross. I've tried oil wash, most recently Neutrogena Deep Clean Long-Last Shine Control which states:
Guaranteed to combat oil and control shine, Neutrogena Deep Clean® Long-Last Shine Control Cleanser/Mask goes deep down to pores to clear out impurities and absorbing built-up oil at the source. Plus, patent-pending rice protein technology acts like a microsponge to continue absorbing excess oil for long-lasting, fresh, breathable skin.
Use as a Daily Cleanser to clear away pore-clogging impurities and absorb surface oil.
Use as an intensive 3-Minute Mask to thoroughly absorb shine-causing oil. You'll feel the cooling intensity build as it goes deep down.
So effective, the multi-action formula instantly absorbs 85% of built-up oil that can clog pores and lead to excess shine – for clear, fresh, breathable skin for hours.
Does not work. At least, by the end of hour one, I've got shiny, shiny skin that I can wipe. :/ I just bought the oil absorbing papers to help out. But come on, there has to be an easier way.
I want to clarify that I'm not having breakouts (miraculously). It's just the shine and oil I'm concerned about. If I'm out and look in the mirror, I'm horrified.
Would love some input. Maybe special makeup? Anything! LOL
