La Roche Posay Toleriane Fluid - this is AMAZING stuff! I used it all through my Roaccutane course, it is light and oil-free but also very soothing. The list of it's ingredients is very short and as far as I am aware, none of them are comodogenic.

Because I need something with SPF for the day, I have just bought Avene Hydrance Optimale (UV Legere SPF 20) - this is also oil-free etc. I have my fingers crossed that it won't break me out!

I second the CeraVe recommendation. It is full of scientifically-proven ingredients to moisturize and treat. I put it on after my acne topicals have dried. I can also pat it on over my makeup if I get flaky during the day. The key is you have to use moisturizer twice daily no matter what - if you wait until your skin looks dry, it will be too irritated. Prevention is better than freaking out and slathering on way too much of something heavy.

The moisturizer you chose is good, although it sometimes isn't enough to combat the flakes that come with using BP and other medications. Everybody's skin is different though, and you need to find out what works best for you. I like to use CeraVe PM moisturizer, but I use it day and night. Other people like the regular CeraVe moisturizing lotion and some people like Cetaphil. I personally cannot use Cetaphil. Here is a link for you to take when you go shopping. Make sure you avoid the ingredients that are marked high. It will take trial and error, but knowing which ingredients are bad will help you.

CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion PM.

I put it on after my benzoyl peroxide gel in the morning and evening every day. I also pat it on during the day if I get any flakes.

No, it never broke me out. It is very well-designed to moisturize in several different ways.

i have a question i been using nertogena spf 35 moisturizer its oil free non comedogenic and i put it over aczone gel.it doesnt seems to want to stick over the aczone gel for some reason it kinda flakes off and smudges.im sure its not made for going over aczone but my skins so dry i need something over it and i want the spf for the day.think im going to try creave to see how i like it not sure if its oil free though i know alot of people use it.

well everyone says use cerave but i found something in creave pm thats not good for your skin is called cetearl acohol and ceteareth 20 and there high on the comedogenic list on this site means it will break you ou.i really dont know how anyone on here uses this stuff without breaking out .not sure about cerave am yet.so far its not looking to good for cerave.I also found part of one in the cerave am cetearyl alchohol.I dont know about using this stuff now.im sure its good for dry skin but people with dry acne pron skin it doesnt look so good.I didnt check the creave regular CeraVe moisturizing lotion yet.how does this stuff not break you guys out i dont get it.check the list.

I don't know what to tell you other than everyone's skin is different. I have always used several chemical exfoliants (AHA & BHA) so surface pore clogging is never an issue for me.

rather than all the chemically crap out there, try organic grapeseed oil or tamanu oil, both amazing, healing and moisturizing and won't break you out (google them ...)

All of those all natural base oils can break people out too... I had a recent bad episode with huge cysts around my mouth from a jojoba based moisturizer from whole foods that had all sort of claims of being all natural and paraben free ect... Immediatelyswitched back to olay combination skin moisture spf 15 now and like the results so far. I Use it 5min after leaving topical (2.5% bp gel , 1% clindamycin phosphate) on.
