Well, I haven't had any major breakouts yet this pregnancy, but I use Phisoderm face wash. There's been some debate on the safety of salicylic acid during pregnancy, my OB said that so long as it's topical and not in a pill you're ingesting than it's fine to use. I think though with anything you want to double check with your own OB since they all seem to differ in opinions.

I've used tea tree oil face wash from The Body Shop for years. I know, it sounds strange...oil? For an oily face? After a 5-day adjustment period where my face broke out like never before (this is normal), I've had clear skin ever since. When I got pregnant and my face started resembling a pepperoni pizza again, I started changing my pillowcase out every 2 days, stopped touching my face and kept my hair back off of my face and I've been breakout-free for the most part. But I notice if I don't change out my pillowcase after a couple of days, the breakouts start up again, but go away when I change my pillowcase.
There is nothing like pregnancy breakouts to make you feel like an awkward 14-year-old again!!! Haha. Good luck, I hope you find a product that works for you.
I use the Proactiv products. I used them before preg and am still using them, they really DO work! My doctor said it was perfectly save to use these products during preg. You can find Proactiv on ebay for cheaper and then you don't have to sign up with the company, in case you decide it doesn't work for you.
