Beauty Dilemma

Help! The last few weeks---I'm blaming the hormones---my skin has been ridicuously oily.  All that oil has caused me to break out like a sixth grader. Yuck! I've had troubled skin all my life, but it had seemed to settle down in my adult-hood.  I'm a pretty simple face routine-type-of-girl, so I prefer to stick with a gentle Ivory wash morning and night. (Gasp! I know.) I should really be taking better care of my skin.

I had a facial last Thursday, and my skin felt so wonderful afterwards!

Thus, I'm seeking your advice. What do y'all do for your skin cleaning routines?
Here are two things I'm considering:

Wexler's Acnescription
I found this cleanser several years ago at Bath and Body Works, $14.

Dermalogica MediBac.
This was the line of products used during my facial, so I'm sure they are a bit more pricey. I managed to find a acne product line sample kit on Amazon for $30, though.

Speaking of skin routines, I tried something I swore I'd never do.....a self-tanner! I was in a wedding last weekend and didn't think people wanted to stare at my pasty white skin. I'll be the first to admit, I LOVE the product I purchased!
Jergen's Natural Glow. I'm not really sure how I came to the decision to purchase this one. Seriously, at one point, I had three different self-tanners in my shopping cart. If you're looking for a pretty color without the sun damage, I totally recommend this investment--I think it was $8.

So, give me your best skin advice, ladies!! Ready, GO!

I've had problem skin the last couple of years. My sister had to do Accutane for hers, but mine isn't to that point. Because of that, my skin is SO oily. It grosses me out. I hate spending money on things like that so I just use store brands and it all is oil free. One thing that helps me is Mineral Veil from Bare Minerals. That stuff takes away shine and I always feel a bit more fresh when I sweep it across my face.
