Yes!!! Worse part is my fave and hair. I have actually cut back on the lotion, use very little conditioner and use scalding hot water to bathe my face and neck and it helps some, buy my hair still gets oretty greasy even with every day washing.

The only place I've noticed my skin to be extra oily is my back, even a few breakouts in one area.

Add a toner to your routine it will help with the oil and only use your moisturizer at night. I have the same problem and acne flares but this change helped me.

Good luck.
