Combination skin

I have combination skin - sensitive and oily. I find that in the Winter I need a richer moisturiser for the sensitive part, but then I get more enlarged pores too. I would love to use something that does both, because I can’t afford to buy 2 pots of moisturiser

Re: Combination skin

Tricky!
I think it is difficult to balance combination skin using one product. You might try and add in a retinol based cream to help with oiliness and pores and stick with a thicker moisturiser to protect against the dryness this can exacerbate....But that doesn't solve your problem of the 2 moisturisers. The retinol only needs to be used in very small quantities and there are some cost effective brands out there.

Hope that helps.
