    • I currently use Proactive and have been for about 8 years.  I have always had oily skin, but when I  hit late 30’s started getting break outs.  I love the products, I do not break out, it has minimized my poors.  They have a fantastic green tea moisturizer that I love.  Just wondering if I should stick to what is working or since I have gotten older, should try something else?

    • I have always had oily skin and I am loving it now!  It gives me a lovely sheen that I need if I over powder, so it tends to take it away and then makes my skin look more “glowy.”  Otherwise, not really doing anything in the way of “oil control,” though.

    • Robin, what type of skincare regime do you use?  I have to be real careful with using anything too heavy, I break out and my pores get clogged.  Maybe I should just stick to the proactive, guess if it’s not broke, don’t fix it.

    • Jane, I use anything and everything Oil of Olay!  Like you said, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”  This has been working well for me for years!

    • I do - have always had oily hair and skin. Even now. It is so unfair to have the oil and the wrinkles! (I always thought/was told that oily skin stayed young-looking longer. If it is true, I can’t really tell it! (maybe helps with wrinkles, but not sagging!)

    • I too have oily skin and hair.  I use Oil of Olay and sometimes just plain bar soap to wash my face.  I do moisturize well at night.  It feel’s like a curse but they say if you have oily skin then you wrinkle less.  I’ll let ya know if that’s true when I hit 50.estatic

    • I also have oily skin and love Mary Kay Cosmetics for the control it gives me with my shine, yet the moisture I need for my age. The cleanser and moisturizer work so well together, and unlike soap, will not dry out my face in areas that are not oily. The great products are the reason I decided to join this company, not to mention the extra income. Check out my website, www.marykay.com/lisaferland, and look at the great oil control products we have. I will even send you a free sample if you like.
