Hi All,
I'm after an animal-friendly moisturiser for my face, but every one i have tried, makes my face really oily and gross (I have combination-type skin). I'm currently using Akin Vital Hydration Gel Creme, but I find that it makes my skin really oily. I used to use Clinique skin products, but have stopped since I found out that they were owned by Estee Lauder, who test on animals. Can anyone refer me to a good brand of moisturiser that won't make my face look like an oil slick... Thanks in anticipation... Mel. rabbit

i use apricot oil
seems silly to put it on to stop oil but but i also have combination skin and you only need a small amount happy last ages

when you clean your face with cleansers it rips skin of its natural oils which in turn makes your skin "over produce" oil
i find creams are way to heavy

you could try natio
I used to use the evening primrose one but found it wasn't moisturising enough for me because I have dry skin
I think it's more for normal to oily skin
they also have a teen specific range in a blue bottle which is for oilier skin I think, but I haven't tried it.

natio is stocked at most chemists and maybe kmart or somewhere like that too, and it's really cheap happy

I use a moisturiser from woolies called simple. Its hell cheap. It says online that it doesn't test on animals or contain any animal ingredients? So I use the facewash and moisturiser. happy

I second the apricot oil. I use a mix of jojoba/rose hip/camellia oil.  Vegetable oils and essential oils do wonders for the skin. Mineral oil (Baby oil) clogs pores, but usually not vegetable ones.

I've been using my own little mix to combat blackheads and it works really well.
