Best Light Weight Moisturizers For Oily, Acne Prone Skin

Last updated on 18 June, 2021

If you have oily skin you might find any other cream to be heavy. I recently have written a post about getting rid of white heads, black heads and pores.

Ever since switching to light weight moisturizers or aloe gel my skin has been in a great condition. Also this change has reduced my white heads and pores. So today am listing down the light weight moisturizers for oily, acne prone skin. 
This is a requested post so please feel free to send the post to friends and share on social media.

Gulnare Aloe Vitamin E Cream
Gulnare Aloe Vitamin E Cream is perfect for day to day use in summers. I have used this cream last year and I swear by it’s ultimate hydrating effects. It is fortified with aloe, vitamin E and cucumber extracts. The product is organic and easily available on major shopping portals as well as on
Price – 700 INR for 60 gms

ENN Rose Ultra Light Hydrating Creme
I haven’t personally tried this creme but looking at the ingredients list the creme seems like a winner for oily acne prone skin. It is fortified with Aloe Vera Gel, Glycerin, Jojoba oil, real rose oil and Vitamin E. Am sure it is a light weight gel like Gulnare Aloe Vitamin E Cream
Price – 750 INR for 50 gms

Mcaffeine Neem Caffeine Glow Gel With Aloe Vera
The Mcaffine Neem Caffeine Glow Gel is exactly like an Aloe Vera gel, gets absorbed instantly into the skin without leaving any sticky or greasy feeling. This gel imparts an instant glow to the skin and hydrates extensively. The ingredients include Argan Oil, Neem, Cucumber Extracts, Gel base, Aloe Vera. I however don’t like the fragrance it has, some might find the fragrance to be overpowering. If your skin is sensitive as well I would suggest skipping this one
Price – 449 for 50 ml

SoulTree Tulsi & Sandalwood Moisturising Gel
My ultimate favourite day time gel has to be SoulTree Tulsi & Sandalwood Moisturising Gel. I have used it during rough phase of my skin and it has proved to be beneficial. I am about to buy another one once I empty current one. It contains neem, sandalwood, lodhra, Tulsi, Aloe Vera, Witch Hazel. The price point is a bit high according to the quantity of the gel. However, I have also experienced the tightening effects of this gel on my skin. So if you don’t mind the price would suggest picking up.
Price – 450 INR for 40 ml

Plum Green Tea Clarity Renewed Night Gel
This is a night gel recommendation and if your skin isn’t sensitive would suggest giving Plum Green Tea Clarity Renewed Night Gel a try. I have been using this since past 4-5 months and my skin actually experiences lesser breakouts as compared to other night creams I was using. Fortified with aloe vera juice, Glycolic Acid, liquorice extracts, Green Tea extracts, Willow Bark extracts and Goji Fruit extracts, this night gel is a dream come true for oily skin.

Price – 575 INR for 50 gms

Apart from the above list am listing down some popular light weight moisturizers for oily skin which are hit among the masses. Suganda White Lotus Moisturizer didn’t suit me much as it caused a lot of purging. However many oily skinned beauties like this moisturizer a lot.

Another moisturizer am testing out currently is Fiducia Botanicals Hemp & Rose Otto Facial Lotion. It is a good light weight moisturizer with organic ingredients. Another one which I like is Votre Absolute Hydration Moisturizer which is parabens free and is pocket friendly as well.

Another one is Himalaya Herbals Revitalizing Night Cream. I love to use this once in a while or as a break to gel moisturisers.

So these are my picks for light weight gel moisturizers for oily, acne prone skin. Using gel moisturizers has been a game changer for my skin and I would suggest you to make a switch as well if you are looking for reducing white heads and pores.
