    I've had an oily nose for a very long time an I'm yet to find a solution to this. Can anyone reccommend any specific washes/scrubs/lotions/anything to sort this problem out?

    yep, i work at the body shop. you should try the tea tree oil, it's not oily- just the name. it mattifies your skin and gets rid of shine & excess oil esp. at t- zone. use the facial wash aswell here's the link

    Erm... you can get mattifying moisturisers.
    I'd just use blotting sheets, they obsorb the oil so you'd quickly whip them out when you felt your nose was getting oily.

    Layer your products. Use a anti-shine cleanser, then a mattifying moisturiser and get some blotting papers for any excess during the day.

    put low strength benzoyl peroxide on it (acne gel) - keeps it dry all day and prevents spots but not good for sensitive skin

    I know this is going to sound weird, but get some white vinegar and dab it on then wash it off a few minutes later (does miracles for a girl with oily skin )
