It appears no matter what moisturiser or serums or toners I used I always seem to get spots. 

Everything is trial and error so gone down the oils route. I've got Jojoba, Grapeseed, rosehip, sweet almond and tea tree oil.

Been using a couple of drops of grapeseed and rosehip together day and night. It's been OK nothing spectacular as of yet. 

I think I have combination skin (oily and dry) particular t-zone is oily, cheeks are dry. My skin is sensitive too and I have seborrheic dermatitis at the minute. 

A dermatologist told me not to use oils though. 

Wondered if anyone else has used oils instead of moisturisers etc and what your experiences was like?

Tea tree oil and rose hip oil broke me out really bad. Toners also break me out. The only thing that has worked well for me so far is grapeseed oil alone. I just use it at night to remove makeup and then after a gentle cleanser to moisturize and my skin is doing so much better. In the morning I just leave my skin alone, this also made a huge difference as my skin was getting too oily when using 2x/day, I have the same type of combo skin. Also I noticed that anything with hyaluronic acid or Sodium Hyaluronate broke me out with a bunch of whiteheads and those are in a lot of products especially moisturizers.

Oils don't tend to absorb well into my skin, they end up sitting on top like an oily film. What has worked well for me is squalane. It absorbs well and has oil regulating properties for the skin, plus it's moisturising and protects the skim barrier :-) I currently use Indie Lee's squalane oil.
