I have acne prone skin. The products I'm using are drying my skin out. Help!
Tea Tree Oil may work for you.

I've tried tea tree oil...didn't work. :-(
I need something oil-free.
Try the Aveda Outer Peace Lotion it's oil-free, gentle but effective for acne prone skin. It contains salicylic acid, but only a small amount. It won't dry out your skin. I'd also recommend the Aveda Enbrightenment Correcting Lotion. It contains salicylic acid which helps to absorb oil and exfoliate the skin. If you have acne scars this works miracles and it won't break you out. But it also contains mulberry root extract which is moisturizing. I'm a licensed esthetician so if you have any questions about your skin I'd love to help you out!
I know this sounds unconventional but i like to use body shop's vitamin e neck gel, because its very light and it doesn't had anything extra to my already oily skin. I've also been using this product from lush which i love called enzymion moisturizer, it is really the best i have used thus far. hope this helps

Thanks ladies for advice. I will be looking into both suggestions.

Neutrogena is really good and doesn't clog pores which is great!

I decided to get Dr. Miss's acne complex kit. Just got it today and used it earlier. The dry spots are diminishing already. I will keep you all posted. :-)
anything that is Olay it works! :) x

I have oily skin too - I have been using the Olay Night Regenerist Serum and it has been wonderful. It doesn't clog my pores and it feels very light on top of the skin. I wear it during the day because I love the velvety texture. I also exfoliate daily which helps (I use a gel exfoliating cleanser with the Olay Pro series brush).
