Here’s some of my favorite green beauty recommendations for oily skin! If you don’t have a good mask or a great blemish treatment, you’re missing out!
MOISTURIZE + EVERYTHING
True Botanicals Clear Collection If you’re looking for one line for your oily/acne issues, here’s what I’m recommending, the Clear Collection. This line combats acne-inducing bacteria, heals the skin and won’t damage it like other lines that dry out and confuse the skin. The Clear Collection is on sale right now and you can choose from three different collections, the main one being a cleanser, toner, serum and moisturizing oil. Oh, and please don’t be afraid of oils when you have oily skin, they are wonderful for repairing and healing acne-prone skin. Oh, and if you’re going to choose one of the True Botanical sets, I recommend you get yourself a mask below, too. DEAL: If you’re a first-time customer, use code: KATIETRUE20 for $20 off your order.

Kosmatology’s Mask Me Green Brand new! This mask, made with organic ingredients will detoxify, absorb excess oil, deliver antioxidants, vitamins and minerals to the skin all while leaving the skin soft without any dryness. The White Willow Bark is a natural source of salicylic acid which will exfoliate the skin while reducing inflammation and redness. Rosemary fights against bacteria that causes acne due to its antiseptic properties. So, you’re clearing up, cleaning out, toning, giving the skin added vitamins and minerals and leaving it feeling smooth, clear and clean. Get it here.
Osmia Organics’ Detox Mask I’ve been using this for years and let me tell you, it’s wonderful. The great news is that it works for all skin types, so you know your oily skin is not going to feel tight or dry after using it. The organic walnut shells and olive leaf powders help to gently exfoliate the skin while you’re washing it off. The Detox Mask will help to pull out impurities while it’s drying on the skin, but raw cacao will make sure that you won’t be left dry. This mask comes also with a locally handcrafted ceramic bowl and bamboo mixing spoon. Get it here.
Osmia Organics’ Spot Treatment It’s always surprising to me when people complain of breakouts, yet don’t have a topical green beauty product. Gone are the days of dried out, raw blemishes that you can’t cover up with makeup; I truly wish I had this baby during high school. With a blend of essential oils, Spot Treatment helps to diminish blemishes, and fast. The good news? Evening primrose oil helps to keep the blemish calm, so Spot Treatment won’t leave your blemishes dry or flakey. Lemony scent, too! Get it here.
Province Apothecary’s Clear Skin Advanced Spot Treatment Using the power of organic Tumeric, this treatment made from plant botanicals really does work overnight. This blemish treatment has been formulated to work for cystic blemishes, too (you know those little guys under the skin, right?) It also won’t dry out your blemishes, either.

Tata Harper’s Purifying Cleanser I find that this cleanser really works wonders for ridding the skin of excess oil and dead skin cells. The good news is that it won’t dry out your skin. The Purifying Cleanser helps to balance oiliness while enzymes help to naturally exfoliate the skin. Shop here.
Osmia Organics’ Black Clay Soap Want a product that will last you and leave your oily skin nourished and super soft? Here’s Osmia’s top seller and I think everyone should have one in their shower. This soap is so pure and gentle that it is also recommended for perioral dermatitis. It will give your skin a great clean feeling without leaving it tight or dry thanks to the Almond, Avocado and Castor Bean Oils. Shop here.
