SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion will help you to improve acne skin problems but at the same time, a hydrating essence should be used to prevent dryness. If the skin is too dry, it will produce more sebum on the skin surface which might trigger acne and other oily skin problems so I will suggest you to use Innisfree Fresh Green Tea Essence or Kose Medicated Junkisui Essence, which are designed for oily and acne prone skin, for re-hydrating and refreshing results.
I do not recommend SK-II essence as they might be too rich for your skin type.
If you are not sure which product suits you, you can try sample size of SK-II FT Clear Lotion and Junkisui Special Set.
One more tip to share with you, you can use a cotton pad to saturate Clear Lotion/Toner then wipe your face gently to remove dead skin cells and any makeup residue. Then, put some Clear Lotion/Toner on hand and pat your face gently to encourage penetration.
After that, you can use a hydrating essence and moisturizer to lock in skin moisture.

It is normal to have a greasy layer on your t-zone after using SK-II Skin Refining Treatment at night as this product helps you to clear excess sebum and unclog pores so it leaves "oil" in the next morning.
Apart from Skin Refining Treatment, I will suggest a re-hydrated cleanser, toner, essence and face moisturizer to replenish the hydration of your skin. If the skin is too dry, it will produce more oil to protect the top layer of your skin and the condition will not be improved, so in the long run, you have to balance oil production and skin hydration.
I don't recommend SK-II Facial Treatment Cleanser as it does not create foam so you might think it is not "clean" after using it. Try Sofina Beaute Massage Foam Cleanser, April Skin Magic Stone or Kao Curel Cleanser which are in gentle formulations and good for all skin types.
Then, use SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion with cotton pad to balance pH and refine skin texture.
After Clear Lotion, use SK-II Facial Treatment Essence which helps to condition your skin, while encouraging skin cells turnover for smooth and youthful appearance.
You also need SK-II R.N.A Essence to replenish and soften your skin for hydrating result.
For moisturizers, you can try SK-II R.N.A cream to seal in the moisture of your skin in the morning, while Skin Refining Treatment at night to clear clog pores and refine rough skin texture.

Going back to your questions, from what our customers tell us, SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion, Facial Treatment Essence, Kose Medicated Sekkisei Lotion and Shiseido HAKU (for whitening) are the most effective products for acne scar and uneven complexion.
After using cleanser, use SK-II FT Clear Lotion (acts as toner) and FT Essence then a moisturizer. Alternatively, use Kose Medicated Sekkisei Lotion (toner) and Shiseido HAKU (essence) then a moisturizer.
For better result, saturate a cotton pad with the toner and gently wipe your face after cleansing. It will help to remove dead skin cells and refine your pores for even complexion.
SK-II Stempower Moisturizer is designed for all skin types. This cream re-hydrates and promotes anti-aging result to your skin but if you worry the texture of the cream, I would recommend you to use it at NIGHT after SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion (toner) and Facial Treatment Essence.
I've never tried SK-II Men Facial Treatment Essence but if you want to use it, please apply to your t-zone as I believe most products designed for men is less hydrating and more powerful in terms of refining pores and smoothing out rough skin.
SK-II Signs Up Lifter is an essence which should be used after Facial Treatment Clear Lotion (toner) and Facial Treatment Essence (essence for smoother and refined skin) for anti-aging and firming results.
SK-II Facial Lift Emulsion is a face moisturizer that is used after Signs Up Lifter. However, if you have very dry skin, and mature skin problem is your main concern, I would like to suggest SK-II LXP Ultimate Perfecting Essence, SK-II LXP Ultimate Perfecting Serum and SK-II LXP Ultimate Perfecting Cream instead. You can refer below web page for detail:
I would like to suggest below items for your consideration:
1) SK-II Facial Treatment Cleanser;
2) SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion which is used as toner to minimize dead skin cells;
