I wouldn't try washing face with an oil either.. it just wouldn't even make your face FEEL clean. It is very true that you don't want to use drying products on your face.. it backfired on me! Clean & Clear products are very good.. Right now I have their oxygenating fizzing cleanser and before that I was using Continuous Control Acne Wash (foaming cleanser) and before that Morning Burst! I must say that I have liked them all.. but for acne prone skin I'd recommend the foaming one. I switched to Neutrogena Deep Clean a while back and I broke out a lot. Clearasil also messed up my skin.

After washing, definitely use moisturizer.. here is a great one that would work: Cleen & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer.. it has salicylic acid to clear up acne and ligthly moisturizes any dry spots. It never made my skin feel oily at all and really did keep my skin clear. I still use it all the time! I'd use this or a gel moisturizer b/c those tend to not feel too creamy. I have a Mary Kay one with SPF and it's pretty good.

Make sure not to overdo it with the acne products. I used to use a 10% benzoyl peroxide Zapzit medicine.. it did clear up pimples, but I would use so much of it and put it all over oily areas on my skin. Then I ended up breaking out more OFTEN, so I would keep using so much of it. So, yes it did work, but it made my skin kind of worse, so it hurt my skin too. My skin got so shiny this year and I was always trying to get rid of the shine! One great product are Clean & Clear oil absorbing sheets. I tried the powder once (it is blue) but I didn't like it. The sheets are great b/c you can absorb any extra oil without putting all the products on your skin that can dry it out.

Good luck!! Make sure your makeup doesn't clog pores either! I wash my face twice daily and my skin has cleared up perfectly from doing this and I used to get lots of oil and I used to have acne scars from my pimples. Even those faded!
