I use oil cleansing a few times a week, coconut oil under my eyes and aloe for the rest of my face. (I find that coconut oil all over is too greasy for my skin type and causes pore clogging). I also use coconut oil on my lips instead of lip balm.
For oil cleansing I use a mix of - coconut oil, olive oil, grapeseed oil, jojoba oil and castor oil. There's good info online on proportions for different skin types if you search "oil cleansing method"

I'd go for Derma e products, I've recommended their products to many patients (I've been a medical aesthetician for 10 years). I use several of their products.
I usually don't do anything to my face, but I tried a corn white vinegar a few weeks ago and it stung like HEO. And then I had minimal breakouts, even during my stressed periods (I get a few pimples when the stress increases on my otherwise clear complexion), and when I tried the rinse last week, it did not sting at all. I hope I did not kill any good bacteria on my face, though
As a side note, I've been using the shampoo and conditioner as a trial at a local gym, Equinox, and the supposedly great amino acid-based shampoo and conditioner totally dried my hair out. MY HAIR BARELY MOVES ON ITS OWN. Very annoying :/ Going back to my citric acid now.
You truly believe that?

I used to need to moisturise all the time, as my skin felt so dry, now it feels amazing.

Way too many ingredients for me, too scary, I have no idea what most of them are.
