Oily skin is a skin type. Just like dry skin, normal skin, sensitive skin and combination skin are also different skin types. Your skin type is mainly determined by genetics but hormones can also play a role.
If you want to blame anyone for having oily skin, blame your sebaceous glands. They are the oil producing glands found in your pores. When your oil glands produce too much oil, you get oily skin therefore using an oil-based moisturizer is not a good idea. It's going to cause more harm then good. You will struggle with clogged pores, acne and you'll have even oilier skin.
Investing in an oil-free moisturizer when your skin type is "oily skin" is the best investment you'll ever make.
