It’s official – summer is here! So bring out your lemonades, lassis, and mojitos and push all the thick and creamy moisturizers to the back of your vanity if you have oily skin like me! Summer means extra humidity, sweat and sebum for us oily-skinned folks and our skin demands light-weight moisturizers. In today’s blog post I will be talking about some of the best moisturizers for oily skin in summer.
Do note that this post does not include the Clinique Moisture Surges and Aloe gels of the world, because these are already popular and don’t need my vote of confidence. My list is focussed on light-weight lotions and gel moisturizers that have some bonus ingredients for oily skin. Plus, all of these products fall under INR 700 with discount codes, and most are below INR 500. So, if you are in the market for a light moisturizer for oily skin, do keep on reading!
1. Vaunt BBFF Moisturizer
Lotion consistency, matte finish. I have spoken enough and more about the Vaunt BBFF Moisturizer on my page. It is light-weight and offers the perfect amount of moisture to oily skin in summers. Plus it has barrier-strengthening and anti-aging properties due to the presence of Bakuchi, Ceramide precursors, Amino acids, and Niacinamide. Also, it is fragrance-free. You can’t really go wrong with this one in summers!

6. Dr. Sheth’s Bakuchiol And Peptide Serum
Lotion consistency, matte finish. Don’t get fooled by the name, the Dr. Sheth’s Bakuchiol and Peptide Serum is actually a thick lotion that has a surprisingly matte finish on the skin. I will recommend this moisturizer for oily skin for nighttime use in summer. It has some amazing anti-aging and firming ingredients like peptides and bakuchiol along with nourishing ingredients like Vitamin E and plant oils. It is also fragrance-free. This product is moisturizing enough to work as a standalone moisturizer for oily skin and may also be enough for normal skin in summers.
