Sensitive? Have you tried Avene? Maybe Avene Toleriane for oily skin. Aven has loads of products aimed atsensitive skin, there must be one that will suit you.

The waitrose pure range is really good.

Clarins blue orchid oil used at night is great for hydrating without adding oiliness.

I use that Amie face wash linked to above, it is very soothing.

I have sensitive (my skin reacts to changes in water, it hates it when I visit family in another county) combination skin, my skin doesn't react to neals yard (I use the frankensense range, but this maybe too rich?). It also liked the very simple/cheap range in wilko.

Try La Roche Posay, Toleriane range. Shame Avène didn't suit you, it's usually v good.
If you're v sensitive, the fewer ingredients in a product, the better. And simplify your routine. Fewer products with fewer ingredients.

My beauty therapist told me that my skin was dry/dehydrated and so my skin was likely producing more oil to compensate, so I should focus on the dry/dehydration and the oil will sort itself out.

My skin reacts easily to products, so as a previous poster says, I only use a couple of products on my skin;

Cleanser - I found that I was most reactive to this. I use a homemade version on lush 'angels on bare skin'

Serum - vitamin e serum in oil from the body shop.

Moisturiser - vitamin e intensive moisturiser from the body shop.

Don't get me wrong, my skin isn't brilliant, but I find the less I do to it, the better.

Have you ever tried the ocm (oil control method) I use jojoba and caster oil and it seems to balance my skin.

Dr Hauschka has a sensitive combination skin range, sounds like this could work for you.
