It actually did the opposite to my skin, it made it oily!

I've been using it for a while- I have what is probably considered to be combination skin but my dry areas are EXTREMELY dry. I just make sure I always follow with a good cream on the days that I use this. I think if I didn't moisturize it might dry me out a bit, it does have salicylic acid in it.

I can only use it a few times a week or else it makes my skin SUPER dry. I find that a few times a week though is enough for it to still be effective.

I have very dry skin in the winter and I use this product, it does not dry out my face any more than any other cleanser. Proactive actually dried my face out more. I suggest using a moisturizer each time you cleanse your face and make sure it's a thicker one, not watery.

It dried my face out and made it feel oily at the same time!

I use it daily and have no issues with dryness from it. I do have combination skin leaning on the oily side though... potentially it could be drying for people with already dry skin.
