I'm wondering if anyone has a good product that they use for oily skin, that doesn't overdry and make their face feel tight and cracked.

My skin is really oily right when I wake up, but if I wash it, it overdries and will crack when I eat, or smile. Usually I use a facial wipe with salicylic acid, and then BP cream which takes away the shine for a little while. Throughout the day, however, without fail, it gets super oily.

I'd love to find a product that actually DOES control oil without overdrying. Something they all seem to promise, but I've never found anything, or any procedure, that really works.

dont take B5 unless u want to take 20 pills a day .. and onc eu stop it all comes back anyways ... I hear Vitamin A works great and the strongest forms of it that are OTC that i know of are .. Green Cream, Derma E Reintyl Palmitate and the Vitamin Cure .. I just started using the Derma E Gel yesterday .. and it does a great job for mositurizing ur face. It says for wrinkles but at the bottom says great for OILY and Blemished Prone skin!
