I tried a sample of the Line Reducing Concentrate before but didn't like the texture. When I applied it to my skin, the lotion has an oily-siliconey texture. I felt like it was clogging my pores or something. I don't know if I am applying it wrong. Am I supposed to massage it in or spead it on my face and let it dry or something?

The oily texture that you experiences could be due to the smooth texture of the Glycerin ingredient in the Dermatologist Solutions Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate that helps to draw in moisture and soften the skin. Kiehl's products are formulated to be non-comodegenic (i.e. formulated not to clog pores). You may also wish to start with a single pump of it for a week first, before getting used to the recommended two pumps for day and night. And indeed we encourage you to gently massage the treatment into skin in an upward and outward motion, and allow 15 seconds for the product to fully settle into the skin first, before applying the next product. Don't forget to apply over your neck area too!
