Dry skin, not alleviated by moisturizer?

Last week I started using Acne.org's products for the regimen, though I've been using alternates on the regimen for over a year and a half.

In the past three days, my face - specifically my cheeks directly under my eyes, as well as between my eyebrows - has been incredibly dry and flaky. Yesterday and today, it was so dry I didn't even use BP in the morning, and instead just use moisturizer, mixing it with a few drops of jojoba oil to get even more out of it. No dice. The flakiness returned both days within 10 minutes, and persisted throughout the day.

I can't really stop using BP and just go with moisturizer for several days. I've done that before, the result wasn't pretty.

Note I'm also using the cleanser, and apparently that can be quite drying. Is this perhaps the culprit?

the cleanser was VERY drying for me. I suggest trying cetaphil gentle cleanser.
