I Have bumpy blotch skin where I have to wear makeup everysingle day to feel pretty, And then it gets oily after a few hours, I use oil free liquid makeup.

Can you please help me, give me suggestios for A cleanser, a acne remover, a toner maybe? and moisturizer that i should be using. Because I just clean my face with this clean and clear orange product with little beads in it.

User avatar Hello,It is good to clean the skin with mild soap and water but you should not become a compulsive cleaner!The superficial lipid layer does not cause problem of acne but then may be a cosmetic problem.In fact the lipids deep down cause the irritation and need keratolytics.
The best way to remove oil on the face is with sebum absorbent wipes.Best wishes.
