I'm also thinking about trying that vaseline moisturizer at chemist direct someone recommended in this thread. Looks pretty promising, I've heard some great things about using vaseline for your face.

Seems to calm my naturally red skin down a bit. A little seems to go quite a long way and has completely got rid of any dry skin. If anything it makes me too shiny on my nose and forehead but i can live with that. It is a bit thick so does stick in my stumble a bit so need to be a bit more sparse in said areas
So far, definitely good. Have to wait and see if I break out over the next week

Aqua, olea europeae, glycerin, pentylene glycol, palm glycerides, olus, oleic triglycerides, hydrogenated lecithin, squalane, betaine, palmitamide MEA, acetamide MEA, sarcosine, hydroxyethlcellulose, sodium carbomer, carbomer, xanthan gum
even though it says its for dry sensitive skin i have combo skin and LOVE IT. only con is it's abit greasy/doesn't sink in quickly so I use it for pm no risky ingredients and they're natural! havn't heard of this breaking anyone out
seriously try it it's soooo good! only £8 aswell which I think is pretty good
hope this helps!

I previously tried the Simple oil-balancing moisturiser with zinc PCA however this blocked my pores and caused me to break out in very small red spots all over. Funnily enough more recently I gave the cleanser from the same range a go and its actually working quite well. Make of that what you will...

Neutrogena Stings a bit, and tends to make my face go red for an hour or so after I apply it but without a doubt it's the best, and in my opinion, only moisturiser which both doesn't break me out and moisturises enough.

Aqua, Cyclomethicone, Zea mays starch, Glycerin, Sodium chloride, Lactic acid, Dimethicone/ Vinyl dimethicone crosspolymer, Dimethicone copolyol, Panthenol, PPG-3 Myristyl ether, Phenoxyethanol, Dimethicone crosspolymer, Cetyl PEG/ PPG-10/ 1 Dimethicone, Isoceteth-10, Parfum, Silica, Zinc PCA, Hydrolised algin, Disodium EDTA, Limonene, Linalool, Butylphenyl methylpropional, Zinc sulphate, Alpha-isomethyl ionone
As you can see, looks pretty good, with just one questionable ingredient (zinc sulphate). I personally have found this less irritating than any other moisturiser I have ever tried.

Full Ingredients List as per the below:
Aqua, Dimethicone, Isododecane, Butylene, Glycol, BIS-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, Glycerin, Laminaria Saccharina Extract, Polygonum Cuspidatum Root Extract, Saccharomyces Lysate Extract, Cucumis Savitus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Hordeum Vulgare (Barley) Extract/Extrait D'Orge, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seedcake, Caffeine, Trehalose, Sodium Hyaluronate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria), Polysilicone-11, Silica, Lactobacilus Ferment, Propylene Glycol Dicaprate, Oleth-10, Laureth-23, Caprylyl Glycol, Laureth-4, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Co-polymer, Carbomer, Hexylene Glycol, Tromethamine, Di-Sodium Edta, Yellow-5 (CI 19140), Red-4 (CI 14700), Yellow-6 (CI 15985), Potassium Sorbate, Phenoxyethanol (ILN35577)
As an addendum, I'd like to give a huge thumbs-down to Nivea For Men. I don't know what it is, but it somehow manages to feel both greasy while having a chalky, cheap matted quality. It doesn't absorb very well into my skin and breaks me out like I'd washed my face with Butter.

Has anyone else just tried plain and simple aqueous cream like E45. Maybe it's just me but it sinks n so quickly, non greasy &&&& I don't break out
Yep, i'm using E45 and it's working a treat

I also use grapeseed oil instead sometimes but I'm unconvinced that it's as good :/

Aqua/Water,Squalane, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Carbomer, Sodium Hydroxide, Ethylhexyl-Glycerin, Caprylyl Glycol
These are the ONLY ingredients it contains - I double checked the packaging.
All these ingredients got a smiley face in Paula Begoum's directory, apart from Sodium Hydroxide which go a so-so face . Apparently Sodium Hydroxide is fine in small quantities and can be used to regulate PH balance on the skin - but not so good in large quantities.
This is absolutely brilliant stuff. I have been using it for about 8 months now. It got me through a 7 month course of Roaccutane with barely any irritation at all. It's soothing, non greasy and leaves no residue. My only gripe is that they don't do a SPF version of this. HG!
You can get it in Boots - I use it with the LRP Effaclar Foaming Facial Wash.

Simple 'kind to skin' hydrating light moisturiser
Cheap for £2
Btw, Clean & Clear's moisturizers usually available in Home Bargains / 99p store are also good

La Roche Posay Effaclar H
Aqua/Water, Squalane, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Propylene Glycol, Butyrospermum parkii Butter/Shea Butter, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, PEG-100 Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-20 Stearate, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Ammonium Polyacryldmethyltauramide/Ammonium Polyacryloyldimethyl taurate, Hydroxypalmitoyl Sphinganine, Caprylyl Glycol, Tetrasodium EDTA, Xanthan, Sodium Benzoate, Parfum/Fragrance
This moisturiser is described as a compensating moisturiser and is specifically for those who have been on acne treatments such as Roaccutane, but also other topical or oral treatments that have dried the skin and made it fragile. It was tested on 30 patients who had been taking Roaccutane for one month. You can visit their website for more information on this moisturiser. Just search for La Roche Posay Effaclar H.
My personal experience with this product has been mixed. As soon as I tested a small bit on the back of my hand I noticed immediately the fragrance. They have obviously added a fragrance, something that La Roche Posay seem to do in a lot of their products, as is shown in the ingredients list, and that was quite worrying. I tried it and it does a good job of moisturising the skin. It does stay on the skin and not really sink in, but after you wash your face you can feel that it has moisturised quite well. I have found that it causes me to break out a little, so I am not sure I will be continuing using it. It is more for those who have finished a course of Roaccutane or perhaps another treatment and have little chance of acne coming back. It is designed to help repair the skin after such a harsh treatment and probably not for use whilst you have acne.
I have another La Roche Posay moisturiser I have used that I will post in here soon. This one is more for those of us who have acne and need a moisturiser. There is also another sebum-regulating one from La Roche Posay that I have not tried and that is new. I will post some reviews of other 'oil free' moisturisers I have used too.
