Face wash depends on your skin type and also on other things like active acne( pimples),  boils,etc.  When you say breakouts it can mean either acne or boils due to bacteria. So ideally you need to consult a dermatologist for detailed check up as proper treatment advice can be suggested only after proper diagnosis.
Next Steps
Usually we prescribe Salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide based face wash for oily and acne prone skin. But using only facewash may not solve your problem completely. Also creams should be prescribed after checking your face in detail.
Health Tips
Avoid cream based oily creams and keep wet wipes with you for face cleansing(which are easily available in medical stores over the counter) . Hope I have answered all your queries.  All the best,  Regards ( Dr Jeetendra Khatuja, Mumbai)
