Those of us with oily or combo skin know that the key to not looking like you dunked your head into a tub of oil is an oil-free moisturizer (plus powder, primer, and blotting paper). To help with staying shine-free all summer long, we've rounded up the best skin-plumping and mattifying moisturizers at every price point.

Clinique iD Dramatically Different Base

Clinique introduced customizable skincare this year. Start with a classic product and then add one of five concern-based cartridges (irritation, pores & uneven texture, uneven skin tone, fatigue and lines and wrinkles) for an added boost. For oily skin, we like The Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly; it's a water-light serum that delivers 24-hour hydration.
