Moisturiser for oily skin

I've been using Clinique dramatically different moisturiser gel for the last 6 months and it's definitely made a difference to my skin.
But now I feel my skin needs more moisture, any suggestions?

Two schools of thought here: one is that oily skin only produces excess oil because it's dehydrated and is crying out for it, hence the theory that more oil is the way forward. Personally this seems true for me and I'm therefore a big fan of Neal's Yard rose facial oil.

The other take on it is that oily skins needs something light and oil-free, and if you're more in this camp I'd recommend something like LRP Toleriane or LRP Effaclar Mat.

Cetaphil moisturiser for oily skin works well for me

I've also liked Nivea oil free moisturiser in the past too
