Finding an ideal moisturizer for a combination to oily skin type is a task in itself.
There are few options in the market but they don't tackle the skin issues such skin
type people usually face.
This moisturizer (La Roche Posay Toleriane Fluide) which is French made is
specifically designed for such skin types by limiting the number of ingredients
that go in. Lot of French brand manufacture products which are not just
designed for the typical skin types(Oily, Dry, Combination) but also cater
to sensitive skin types which are apparently left out.

My Take on La Roche Posay Toleriane Fluide (Soothing Protective Non Oily Emulsion):
Finally I came across a moisturizer which my skin seems to be in love with.
So a little brief about my skin type,which is combination cum sensitive and
acne prone too. So finding an appropriate moisturizer for my complex skin
type was a task for all these years. Though I always banked on aloe Vera gel
and Neutrogena moisturizer for that matter but they could never address some
underlying skin issues I had, like my face getting red,flaky and quite irritable
after using acne medications. So these moisturizer's dint seem to do enough for
Toleriane fluide does the perfect job of hydrating the skin which is also the
requirement of oily skin contrary to what people believe. It seems ideal for
even combination skin type. As it is non comedogenic my skin never broke out.
I love how it instantly gets absorbed by the skin by giving a matifying look.
I use it as a daily day time moisturizer under my sunscreen from the same brand
which I will review soon. It gives the ideal amount of hydration a skin would
require during day time.
