Scrub up for summer | face cleansers for oily skin

Keep sebum production at bay this summer with face cleansers for oily skin. Our go-to cleansers, exfoliants and masks will help reduce excess oil to reveal a radiant, glowing complexion.

Do you have clients complaining of shiny faces? Or perhaps the hot weather has seen them break out in pimples? Oily and combination skin types naturally produce excess oil, known as sebum, and sebum can flow quite freely during the warmer months of the year.

This can create a sheen on the skin's surface and cause pores to clog with sebum build-up, resulting in blackheads and blemishes.

To minimise excess sebum, it is essential to balance oil production without drying out the skin – which can produce even more sebum!

A good skincare regime with suitable face cleansers for oily skin can reduce the amount of oil produced by overactive sebum glands.

Give your clients the confidence to get outdoors and enjoy summer without fearing blemishes. Trulux has beautiful, ready-made cleansers, exfoliants, masks and moisturisers specially designed for oily and combination skin that you can relabel and call your own.


Cleansing skin morning and night removes impurities, helps control sebum, and prevents blackheads.

Our hydrating Foaming Cleanse Cream removes dirt, oil and sunscreen and is suitable for oily to combination skin types. Use plenty of water to form a lather, apply to the face, and then rinse off. For those who don't like foaming cleansers, suggest our Cleansing Gel.

For particularly oily skin, we recommend our Teen Blackhead Cleanser. This gentle cleanser is anti-clogging, anti-bacterial and anti-septic and is perfect for teens or anyone experiencing overactive sebum secretion.

More sample Cleanser products are here. 


Removing dead skin cells by gently exfoliating will also help in the battle to control sebum. It is essential to choose products that don't strip the skin, as that can produce even more oil.

After cleansing, apply our gentle Exfoliating Cream to the face, particularly the T-zone. Our non-abrasive facial exfoliator contains natural occurring AHAs to even out skin tone and texture and gives skin a fresh, healthy appearance.

Massage in a circular motion then leaves for five minutes before thoroughly rinsing. We recommend using the Exfoliating Cream one to two times a week.

Granule Exfoliating Face Scrub is a deep exfoliation for restored and refreshed skin.

Deep cleanse

Clay cleansers and masks are great sponges for oil. Clay is a natural substance that absorbs excess oil, cleans the skin, and unclogs and refines pores.

Trulux Clay Face Mask can be used 2-3 times a week but is gentle enough to use daily. Apply a generous amount to the face and leave for 10 minutes before rinsing with warm water. The result is thoroughly cleaned skin that is soft and smooth, ready for hydration.


Oily skin needs moisturising to prevent sebum from overproducing. However, using a moisturiser specially designed for oily and combination skin is essential.

Trulux's non-irritating Oily Skin Moisturiser and Normal to Oily Skin Moisturiser prevent trans epidermal water loss to maintain moisture and contain botanical extracts and natural AHAs to help control oil.
