Mama Earth moisturizer is a very basic formula for oily skin which gives a mattifying feel. It contains good amount of emollients which locks in moisture into skin and makes it feel soft. The moisturizer is non greasy in nature & that’s why can be used in humid weather conditions. Though I didn’t face any acne while using it but it does contain some comedogenic ingredients which can clog the pores. So I won’t recommend this moisturizer if you already have active acne on skin.

Choosing moisturizers for oily skin is difficult as most of the moisturizers has the tendency of clogging pores. Oily skin is soft in nature so always focus on moisturizers rich in humectants and less in emollients/occlusives. Such moisturizers hydrates well while providing slight moisture to skin. I have tried and tested all the above moisturizers I hope this post can now help you out in choosing the right moisturizer for your skin.
