If you think it is the Dove that is making you oily, why don't you switch and try the Neutrogena for a while. That's the only way to find out. Everyone's skin is different.

I've been using Neutrogena products for the past couple of months and they seem to work really well for me. I use their oil free moisturizer this has been a lifesaver. As for cleansers I'm currently using a salicylic acid wash from ProActiv but will switch to Neutrogena's salicylic acid wash once finished w/ the remainder of the proactiv.

Neutrogena has some really great products and their all derm. tested.

If I wwere you, I would use Neutrogena. Dove is a gentle moisturizing formula, not really for oily, acne-prone skin. Neutrogena is the way to go if you have oily skin.

Any thing that is a "quarter cup moisturizer" is probably not good for people with acne - just a guess.
