my oil production seems so much less since i stopped moisturizing during the day. it is crazy. i used to blot at least 5 times a day could clear out two sheets in one blotting. now that i dont moisturize during the day i blot MAYBE once and dont even use up an entire sheet. it's awesome. but, like you, my skin is a bit too dry throughout the day.
i also stopped using cleanser and just use water. i use a topical antibacterial and epiduo at night along with neutrogina AHA lotion. i wake up oily but after i rinse it's fine. i think my problem though is the intense skin shedding the topicals cause me which makes me seem oily. i dont think i have genetic oily skin as it was never an issue until topicals.
also i can do this right now because i havn't had a serious zit in almost 5 months after a course of doxy and getting back into using epiduo in the places i started breaking out again last year. i've been off doxy for 2 months... hopefully it stays this way
