This will absolutely combat the oily skin you have. I have combination skin, and while I'm not prone to breakouts, this has calmed my oil production considerably. What you have to think about is that your skin regenerates itself every 28 days, so for the first week or so, you may have a stray pimple or even a breakout, but if you continue to use it, it will continue to work its magic. It's like any medicine, it gets worse before it gets better, but when it gets better, it's amazing! Just make sure that you press it onto your face, only using two to three drops of oil, and make sure that you warm it up between your fingertips first. Using a lot of product will negate the effects and just increase the oil on your skin. And be sure to moisturize after!

I have extremely oily skin and I am very pleased with this product. Oil production has decreased considerably and I have not had an acne breakout in weeks. I began using at night only, but have now included daytime use. I use less during the day because I use a sunscreen as well.

I take Retin-A and it did not make my skin worse. It made it softer.
No! I have extremely oily skin as well and found out that it is because my skin is actually DRY and over-producing oil. If you use oil on your face, it will make it less oily. Sounds weird? I don't think so.
No. But with every product it also depends on the user's skin. I have combo skin and this did not break me out, or cause me to be greasy. In fact my skin was less greasy. Strange, but you should at least give it a try.
I totally hear you because I couldn't wrap my head around using an "oil" on my oily skin, but I too was told that my skins been dehydrated and is producing more oil because of it. I decided to take the advice given by the very nice associate at Sephora, and one of the estheticians I work with, and I'm glad I did. I have always had acne prone skin, and only since my mid 20's was it ever oily. I think all the years of harmful and stripping acne products disturbed the balance in my skin. From using this (night & day under moisturizer) and the Nude oil cleanser (night) and the Nude purifying daily cleanser with clarisonic brush(day), my skin is literally flawless. Even textured, radiant, smooth, poreless and dare I say OIL FREE! I never thought I'd see the day! I noticed a difference right away and have continued to have great results. I'm also using the purifying daily moisturizer and toning water. So I'd definitely give it a try. Good luck to you!

If you have oily skin you can use this in place of your moisturizer. I recommend using this at night only and your regular moisturizer in the morning. This is an essential oil so it acts as your body's natural oil thus it wont break you out or cause you to be more oily. This will also help balance your skin out if you have really oily skin.

I have oily acne prone skin & almost everything breaks me out. This hasn't broken me out at all. It makes my skin look perfect.

I have oily skin as well and I am prone to breakouts, especially around my chin. I also break out fairly easily from products. I use this at night after I wash my face and don't put on anything else afterwards. In the morning my pimples are smaller and less red, and there are no new ones. My skin isn't oily and it is very even toned. I tried mixing it with my daytime moisterizer and it made my skin look very oily all day, so I wouldn't recommend using it during the day. However, using it at night as an overnight hydrating facial has worked amazingly for me and I highly recommend you at least get a sample of this and try it. I saw a difference after the first time using it! I hope this helps :)
