Best moisturizer for mature oily skin? Exuviance Sheer Refining Fluid

Some of us who start with oily skin in our teenage years end up with dry skin when we are in our forties or fifties, while others end up with the same oily skin and sometimes even with adult acne. So if this is your case, have you thought what you should be using and what moisturizer would be best for your mature skin?

Personally, in my case I sit in the middle, part of my face gets a little oily midday and part is a bit on the dry side.. but I know many of my friends who are in their late fifties or sixties and they still get a lot of oil..

I have good news today for those of you with oily and even acne prone skin. This company that is well respected and an authority in skincare, called Exuviance, created a specific product just to address these concerns. Their Sheer Refining Fluid is a 50 ml lotion which retails for $46 at It has not only anti-aging properties but also a sunscreen of spf 35.

The lotion is white and reminds me of my sunscreen a bit.. it goes on smoothly in the skin, and is well tolerated and absorbed. The tube or container is white and has a pump which is easy to operate to get the product out. All in all, the bottle is small and lightweight and can easily accompany you wherever you go, in your bag or when you are traveling.

Now I want to give you more detailed information about this product and tell you in more detail all the good stuff about this specific lotion.

The effect of this fluid on dark spots that we see on the skin of mature women, is great as it will with continued use, reduce the appearance of dark spots.  In addition, if you have been left with large pores after years of problems with acne, this moisturizer also works on reducing the size of large pores making them appear more normal. I am very happy to see that this product has great reviews.

This fluid contains a new ingredient called NeoGlucosamine which is proven to help reduce the look of discolorations and dark spots from acne and aging, while smoothing and evening out the skin’s texture and tone. The company also states that “Cellular turnover is enhanced, improving skin clarity and firmness gently, without irritation. Phytotal® a botanical blend helps control oily skin, reducing excess oil production over time. Enhanced with a broad-spectrum sunscreen (SPF 35), Sheer Refining Fluid also helps prevent against future damage by protecting the skin from the sun’s harmful rays. If you have oily skin with signs of aging and are looking for the perfect daily base, this product is for you. Non-comedogenic/non-acnegenic. Fragrance-Free, Dye-Free, Paraben-Free, Paba-Free, Oil-Free.”

The last 2 lines are of high importance to me, as I don’t like my skincare to contain paraben or other stuff that will irritate my skin.

This is for daytime use. Apply in the morning on clean skin or under your foundation.
