Most skin care products are unisex I would think, aside for the Lancomes and Lauders which are heavily fragranced. Kiehls, Mario Badescu, almost anything from a drug store would be fine for a guy. Mario Badescu has a Special Mask for Oily Skin which I love for tightening pores. Also their cucumber Lotion astringent and Special Healing Powder (made with calcium carbonate for oil sucking wonders!!!)

Most of the "guy brands" don't have skin type specific products so you will have to go into a dept store and ask for help from the prettiest salesgirl you can find! Make sure you dont get suckered into buying $200 worth of crap too.
Check labels (check for oily skin products and no oils in the ingredient label) , prices and be smart. You are in the right place for good advice.

Vichy in the USA is a little out of my price range so I can't comment. I am not a sucker for anything over-hyped or overpriced because in the end, there is not much difference.

What dept store do you work at?

Have you checked out Lancome's pure focus line? They have a matte moisturizer and some other matte stuff you may like. Its over-fragranced for my taste and overpriced as well but when I used to work for Lancome, the stuff would sell and people would really like it- one of the few product lines that guys did buy from my lancome counter. The oily skin stuff. its not packaged girly either. Blue and green simple bottles if I remember.

Aveda.... I am a total addict of their refreshing bath bar... it cleared my skin and keeps my skin from being shiny, but also doesn't leave it dry...

if you're in the UK, shouldn't be too far from any location of The Body Shop, right? Tea tree mattifying moisturizer, toner, and the foaming cleanser are great. Don't smell femme-y either...

Don't mean to be a Body Shop spokesperson or anything, but, their tea tree and seaweed lines both have done wonders for my skin. I am now able to whip up my own products just as easily and more cheaply, though, so I don't use their products. But for folks who can't do it quite as conveniently, I highly recommend the body shop (if you're not buying from me, lol).

otherwise: I would find something natural with seaweed and/or tea tree oil. They will help balance the moisture on your skin and kill any bacteria that causes blemishes.

What is key, though, is to make sure you are doing all three steps, no matter what line you choose. The cleanser, when it cleanses, also breaks down the lipid barrier (oils) on your skin. While the sheen is obnoxious, the lipid barrier does PROTECT your skin from free radicals, bacteria, and such the like, so it is important. Using a toner with glycerin will help your skin receive the moisturizer better. That way, your skin won't react to the sudden dryness (of a freshly oil-less face) by producing wayyyy to much oil in response.
