Cleanser for oily skin?

Hi all Over the years my skin type seems to have changed from normal to oily. I have been using Noxema in the pump to wash my face, but I think I'd like to try something else. Does anyone have any recommendations for a facial cleanser for oily skin that they personally have tried?

Funny you post this because I was just talking about this subject yesterday with a friend of mine.

I also use the Noxzema in a pump. I also use the Clean and Clear Foamy Facial Wash and the Phisoderm with the pump.

I love them all. My daughter loves the Clean and Clear and Noxzema.

Not only these but I also use SeaBreeze for Sensitive Skin.

I Mary Kay's Products...I use their Timewise has the cleanser, refreshner, and mask in it. Then I use the Moisturizer (Timewise) too. It lasts a long time and I clean my face in the morning and at complexion is so much better.

Go to and check out their products.

Over the years,mine has done the opposite.....I used to have oily skin but now have normal to dry!

When my skin was oily, I used Nutrogena and loved it!

I use BeautiControl products. Have been using them for years and, not to brag or anything (well, maybe a teensy bit) I am often told I look 10 yrs younger! ;-)

When you're thisclose to turning 40; well, that means so much to me! :p

You can continue using what you like but use Witch Hazel as an astringent after cleansing with a cotton ball. It works and you can find it in a big bottle and inexpensive.

Here's yet another. Enfuselle by Shaklee
Enfuselle means to feed the skin. Shaklee does it from Mother Nature's bounty. Anti Aging formula has five patents.
Here's to looking younger! Robin

For oily skin try the Keep It Clean! Multi-Vitamin Cleanser. It is only $6.00 and lasts a good while. If your skin is blemish prone - try Clearskin Scrub (only $4.29). If you have large pores, try Pore-Fection Cleanser ($7.00). All of these products are from Avon.

I don't have oily skin, but I work at McDonalds and when I come home my skin feels like you dumped a bucket of grease on it.
So I started using Oil of Olay facial clothes. I got a free sample
from Oil of Olay web site and I loved them. I wash with one
and the oil is gone. Maybe you can still get a free sample at their
web site. Good Luck, ask323

It's pricey, pricey, but the best thing I've ever used on my oily face is Borghese's cleanser. (They carry the Borghese line at Dillards here in SW Missouri; any upscale dept. store would have it, I would think.) I can't think of the specific name of it; it's a thin green gel-like liquid and it's AWESOME. It just whisks ALL your makeup right off, gentle enough for your eyes also, all botanical, and feels wonderfully cool. Leaves your skin very soft and touchable. If you're in the mood for a splurge, this would be it!
