Clean and Clear skin balancing moisturizer

It maintains the moisturization to the perfect levels required for an oily acne prone skin. Thumbs up for this budget friendly moisturizer. With inclusion of salicylic acid, this has become one of the best Moisturizers for Oily Acne Prone skin.

Price: Rs. 50 for 50ml

SEBAMED CLEAR FACE CARE GEL: This was firstly suggested by my derma. An expensive yet an amazing moisturizer again. It comes in a gel form. It includes all natural ingredients and is a mile away from the parabens and other unnecessary skin irritant ingredients. It might feel to be a bit sticky, but not really a problem in fact.


Price: Rs. 500 for 50ml

AROMA MAGIC HYDRO GEL: This is a gel based moisturizer, which gets easily absorbed into the skin. I quite love the ingredients of this particular product. They are so skin-friendly which helps to keep a distance from acne.  Seaweed gel and Vitamin E helps to maintain the skin’s PH level, Beta Carotene helps in penetration into skin and working on damaged areas.


An unknown fact in this product is that, it includes lactic acid. So, with its natural properties, Lactic acid helps in peeling off the dullness over the skin, thus passing way for a clearer and glowing skin. This is one such product everyone would love to have.

Price: Rs. 170 for 50gms

L’OREAL DERMO EXPERTISE HYDRAFRESH ALL DAY HYDRATION AUA-ESSENCE: A complete vibrant cosmetic brand, but yet has shown its elegance in this corner. L’Oreal Dermo Expertise HYDRAFRESH All Day Hydration Aqua-Essence has an extremely light formula. As the name says, it leaves the skin ‘Hydrafresh’ all the day. It is available in 2 variants – both gel and cream. It gets easily absorbed into the skin, and little amount like a pea sized would be enough for the entire face. And hence, one jar lasts really long.


Price: Rs. 449 for 50ml

PATANJALI ALOE VERA GEL: Aloe vera gel is a natural moisturizer for the skin. But it is equally harmful for acne prone skin! Few brands are processing aloe vera in quite different way (I am unsure regarding the ways), mixing it with other ingredients as well, thus making it Non-Herbal but yet calling it an ‘Aloe Vera Gel Moisturizer’. Here comes a true and clean one from patanjali.


     Very much rated product by many as an ‘Indian Moisturizer’ for acne prone. It includes organically grown Aloe-vera content(98%) and Green tea (2%). No parabens, skin irritants and preservatives. Budget friendly and helpful product!

We do have few more moisturizers which are very skin-friendly for acne prone skin ladies. Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer (Rs. 300 for 118ml), Lotus herbals Aloe Vera Moisturizing gel (Rs. 245 for 100ml), Kaya skin clinic Skin Nourisher (Rs. 680 for 50ml), Johnsons baby oil (Rs. 50 for 50ml) etc.

But, the above mentioned 5 tops the list as they are completely Oily-Free, doesn’t make your skin greasy, doesn’t harm acne skin, suitable for all types of skin including sensitive skin, and thus are considered to be 5 Best Moisturizers for Oily Acne Prone Skin in India!

So, would you like to add any other moisturizer to this list?
