Bumpy skin texture

For all my life I've had the most flawless skin but over the last year it's been awful and what I can only describe as bumpy & oily.
I used elemis super serum on the run up to my wedding over a year ago and it's never been the same since. I discontinued using the serum and have tried products specially for oily skin but nothing is clearing it up.

I desperately want my lovely skin back. Any suggestions?

It sounds like your pores are clogged. If you look at Google images is that how it looks? Not blackheads, but bumps under the surface. If so, salicylic acid is your friend, and will also help with the oil production. What is your current routine?

That's what I thought, I think I've over oiled my skin but it's been months and I can't get rid of it.
I've been using Clinique 3 step for oily skin but its not making any difference as yet sad

The Clinique three step is really quite harsh. The moisturiser might be okay, but the toner will be full of alcohol and not much of what you need. Paula's Choice do good salicylic products which are alcohol free and are now available on Look Fantastic (they only shipped from the US before). Alcohol could be causing your skin to over compensate being stripped by producing more oil.
