It sounds counterintuitive, but it’s true: Face oils can combat oily skin and even put acne to rest. They’re full of vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants that balance your complexion—including how much oil your skin produces—and keep it moisturized. And as it turns out, balance and moisture are the winning combo for clearing breakouts, too. So let’s finally forget the idea that all oil clogs pores. Here are four great facial oils for greasy skin to get you started.

This non-greasy blend is unlike anything we’ve seen before. It feels thick like oil, but quickly absorbs into your skin like a serum.
