    A HUGE misconception is that people with oily skin don't need face moisturizer. That's so untrue — not moisturizing can actually worsen oily skin. We asked the BuzzFeed Community for the best moisturizers for people with oily skin, and they shared some of their faves because they're awesome!

Because of the aloe vera gel formula, it's non sticky/greasy, absorbs ridiculously fast into your skin, and gives you a nice cooling sensation. I swear by this shit." —Stacy Li, Facebook
