I'm oily and I like Signature Club A, the caviar set. Right now HSN has a caviar kit with the basic 3: day, night and eye cream for $36.50, which is a good package combo and it lasts a long time. I also like Signature Club A 5 Essential Cream + 1 for face and eyes with Qsome. I use that as my go-to quick fix if I'm in a hurry because the eye cream is in a separate pouch on top. Its selling at $29.50 n0w but twice a year she has it for a buy one, get one at that price. My DH has oily skin and he likes it too!

If you want Retinol, Serious Skin Care has a great basic package of the Age Defy A-Defiance trio for $50 that is great deal for eye, serum and moisturizer. I never feel oily with that either.

I have combo-oily, sensitive skin and these are my go-to moisturizers:
Clinique Moisture Surge, LaRoche Posay Toleriane Facial Fluide

I have oily skin and my favorite night time moisturizer is Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Moisture Gel. Check it out here.

Disappointing to see it contains parabens.

I like Mario Badescu's Oil Control Moisturizer. It's the only one I've found that doesn't add oiliness to my skin. I only need to use it in the fall/winter months since I live in Atlanta where it stays hot and humid in the summer, but my skin drinks it in when I do.

Serums like isomers and EL's work better on my oily, aging skin.

Complex 15 is amazing.

I have been impressed with philosophy's When Hope is Not Enough serum. It sinks in immediately and my skin gets really soft. I think it reduces dry skin and fine wrinkles at least.

Control Corrective Med O2 is fantastic. It's meant for oily (acne prone) skin.

Clinique Moisture Surge, Garnier Moisture Rescue Refresh Gel Cream and CeraVe PM.

I've been using Isomer's All-in-One Complete Hydra-Protect Dream Cream and I love it. It sinks in completely and leaves my skin soft and moisturized. It's very light but it still works on my dry skin.

I am having good luck with the Algenist moisturizer. It has almost a gel-like consistency.

I had very oily skin as a teen, now it's just a tiny drop oily around my nose and center of my forehead. I've been using Olay Complete (the original Olay in the white bottle) for many, many years. It sinks right in even on hot, humid days within a minute. Not oily at all. My derm also recomends Eucerin and Purpose.

I have tried lots of moisturizers for oily skin. I finally found one that I LOVE! It is so refreshing, instantly sinks in and is not one bit oily. It is a gel!!! http://www.mariobadescu.com/herbal-hydrating-serum

I am really liking Philosophy's Take A Deep Breath moisturizer. It is oil-free and sinks into the skin almost immediately. I just started using it aout 2 weeks ago, after using HIAJ for about 9 years (which I still like. I was just drawn to this new moisturizer, for some reason).

M Asam Vino Gold serum sinks right in for me. But, my skin is very dry these days.

Philosophy's Hope in a Jar and Philosophy's Take a Deep Breath - both are great and sink right in!
