Best moisturizer while on accutane

12 posts in this topic

I am on my 22nd dose of accutane I think and I now how a couple of small dry patches on the face 2 to be exact. My moisturizer is great when wearing makeup over it but I need something thicker for night time application. Can anyone suggest a thick moisturizer that doesn't feel oily and doesn't end up clogging my pores?

Thanks

Cetaphil cream is a nice heavy moisturizer that shouldn't clog your pores. Moving this to the Accutane area for more replies.

Now that i have no oil production from the medicine I use Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture "Sensitive Skin"(purple rectangle on the front). I dont have to wear foundation on my forehead anymore but I sweep some powder over it and the moisturizer is just right for help the powder set. But it isn't too thick so I can wear it under my foundation without it being noticeable.

When I was oily I would wear one from the same line from Neutrogena but it was the pink or blue rectangle on the front. It was a thinner formula sorry I can't remember it was something like "oily and dry skin or something like that.

if you're in the US, cetaphil (or the no name one that has the same ingredients and is way cheaper).... if you're in Canada, complex15 or cetaphil.


For every person who regrets taking Accutane, God kills a kitten.

Did they ever think that maybe their crazy made them crazy?!?!

I'm on accutane right now..prior to accutane i used cetaphyl and i looked all gross and greasy :| and my makeup melted off. (gross!!!!!!)

However, when i apply the cetaphyl now its perfect for dry skin and i dont look greasy or anything

kiehl's sodium PCA moisturizer is a freaking godsend. it feels rich and soothing but won't clog your pores... one of its ingredients is a small amount of retinyl palmitate (vitamin a) which keeps your pores clear while it moisturizes your skin. i loooove it, it feels amazing. it's perfect for under foundation too.

Are you using the lotion or the cream, Kate? The lotion wasn't doing it for me, so I switched to the cream on my doctor's advice. I use a bit of aquaphor on stubborn flaky spots.

I love this stuff. I have to use a primer with it though. It look horrible if I just use cetaphil and my makeup, but if I let it sink in and then apply a primer and then my makeup it works wonderfully.
