    Absolutely this! There are so many products out there, all promising to do different things. It can be overwhelming.

    I reckon the most important thing is getting a basic skincare routine that is good for your skin. Because no makeup will look good on skin that’s not cleaned or moisturised. 3-4 products - something to clean your skin, something for your eyes, a moisturiser and maybe a serum.

    Then a basic base makeup routine - foundation, concealer, setting powder. You can worry about primers etc later.

    I think if you have the above you can do just about anything by adding more products as you like - mascara, lipstick/lip gloss, eyeshadow.

    I spend money on skincare (or I did until the ordinary ) and my foundation and powder. And then use more affordable products for things that have short shelf life (mascara) or fashion related (eye shadows in specific colours)

    I keep my skincare routine simple;
    Morning: Skinstitut gentle cleanser, eye serum, moisturiser, sunscreen.
    Night: remove makeup with microfiber pad and micellar water or warm water, Skinstitut gentle cleanser, eye serum, Skinstitut vitamin C powder mixed in with moisturiser.
    2-3 times a week - Skinstitut glycolic scrub
    Once or twice a week - hydrating mask in place of night time moisturiser.

    Does anyone with oily, acne prone skin only use serum at night and not moisturiser? I’ve always avoided moisturiser at night and used products that strip all the oil from my skin but recently found out that’s probably adding to my skin problems so if I’m using an anti-breakout serum (tribe skincare) at night, should I definitely use moisturiser too, even if it makes my skin feel greasy (though maybe it’s not greasy, it’s probably just because “clean” skin has always been dry, right skin).

    Always moisturize. But you need to find the right one for you. Try the one that goes with the serum and see how it goes.

    FWIW - I am now off the pill. PCOS for me years ago included bad acne and oily skin. My face went from dry to oily since I came off it so I'm having to figure it out too.

    Absolutely always moisturise. Sometimes lack of moisturiser makes your skin produce more oil - and then only add to problems with break outs and congestion.

    It’s taken me ages to get on board with milk cleansers rather than foaming cleansers that always made my skin feel squeaky clean (way too dry!)
    And then to get on board with serums and moisturisers which always made me feel greasy at the time. But now I’m used to them I love them.

    @JR03 I would recommend a skin balancing moisturiser.

    I’m a bit oily and I found a lot of the night creams were too rich, however it’s still important to moisturise at night, otherwise your skin can get even oilier.

    I’ll take a photo of the one I use and post it in here for you:

    I used to think I was oily too, and I still do to a degree, but my main issue was I needed to exfoliate more and my skin was dehydrated

    Do you use this one under makeup too? Or only at night? I’m beginning to realise proper skincare isn’t cheap
