I have generally very oily skin, and it's taken me a LOT of years to try and learn how facial skin behaves. That said, I found out that in most cases, skin is oily because it's actually TOO DRY. Sounds crazy, right? Well, when skin is too dry (from over-washing, under moisturizing, or acne treatments), it will start to compensate by producing MORE oil (sebum) than usual, which will make skin appear oily.
In my case, the only way I would believe this fact was trying it for myself. So I bought serums and facial oils. And, believe it or not, it completed toned down my skin! The science is that using oil or moisture-rich serums on oily skin will re-hydrate and balance out sebum production.
Hope this helped, and good luck!
I am almost 40 and i still have very oily skin. Most moisterizers seem to make me feel slick after a few hours. I use this instead of a moisterizer in the mornings under my make-up and i dont feel like grease ball.

I don't believe so. I have normal skin and need to moisturize after I put this on. It absorbs quickly for most skin types and does not make the skin oily on it's own as a product.

ABSOLUTELY. My skin is like yours. As for the aging, this is the product for it (read my review) - it diminishes fine lines and gives your skin an overall glow. I have VERY sensitive and Acne prone (in fact, I'm on oral tetracycline for it) and I have not had ANY problems with this product. I'm also oily skin and this has not caused my skin to be any more oily. In fact, my skin completely absorbs this. Give it a try. I think you will be very pleased.
