Yes - I have noticed it helps to dry out breakouts and helps somewhat with controlling oil. Be careful not to overuse, which will have reverse effects and your skin will try to produce more oil if everything is excessively dried up.
I personally have oily acne prone skin and I feel that this face wash is very effective. I've been using it for a few years and it has helped clear up my skin and keep it clear. I would recommend you give it a try, but start off using it once a day and build up the usage as needed.
