For oily skin, keeping the face hydrated can be difficult. While additional oil can lead to break outs, a lack of moisture can cause dry patches, tightness and flaking. This Fresh Face Oil-Free Lavender Lotion was created with oily skin types in mind. This lotion delivers light-weight hydration that leaves skin feeling refreshed without excess oil.
Made with conditioning BTMS-50, and oil-absorbing Tapioca Powder, this lotion keeps skin comfortable throughout the day. While it does contain a very small amount of oil via the Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil, you can omit the essential oil if you’d like.
