Oily Skincare Wishlist & Advice

Oily Skin WIshlist

I feel like I am fighting a constant battle with my skin and it can be quite a depressing thing when all you really want is clear skin. However I refuse to be defeated and I am constantly on the look out for other products that may help me out a lil'. So after doing some research I have come across some products that I really want to try out.
Here's what I'm lusting after at the moment... 1. Bioderma Sebium H20 - Micelle Solution I'm sure everyone has heard about or even tried the Bioderma Sensibio H20 so when I came across the Sebium H20 which is specifically for imperfection prone skin I instantly wanted it. As I have already tried Bioderma Sinsibo and loved it I really have high hopes for this one!
2. Urban Decay De - Slick This is something I'm definitely interested in, I do believe it had been around for a while but has just been recently repackaged and I'm loving the new look. This spray is designed to be used after applying your make up to reduce the amount of time you have to touch up during the day and reduce oil.
3. Dermalogica Oil Control Lotion One of the more pricier products, this product is designed to help hydrate your skin (believe it or not oily skin still needs to be hydrated) while reducing oil and calming irritated skin. This is the type of product I am normally sceptical about as I don't normally like using many lotions on my face but this also promises to prevent future breakouts definitely something I would like to try.
4. Nars Sheer Matte Foundation A foundation especially made for a matte finish? I'm there! Well I hope to be soon...this is an oil free foundation that promises to control shine though out the day as well as evening out your skin tone. I have previously tried a tinted moisturiser by Nars and I loved it so I really would like to try one of their foundations.
Here are a few things I've learnt over the years...
Exfoliate - This is definitely important as it controls oil production as well as preventing your pores to clog which can lead to a breakout. Exfoliating also leaves your skin feeling smooth.
Moisturise - This one may sound weird and I am a bit of a hypocrite here as I don't moisturise my face everyday but believe it or not oily skin still needs moisturising. Lack of water = dehydration even with oily skin.
Use a clay based cleanser - Get rid of any oil on the skins surface as well as deeply cleansing and unclogging your skin.
Clay face masks - These should be used once or twice a week, this helps to control the glands in your skin that produce oil as well as drawing out any muck from clogged pores.
