Has anyone found a moisturiser in the UK or on the internet that seems to have near enough no pore clogging ingredients and that doesnt leave a layer that stop your skin from "breathing" and getting rid of "stuff"

because there seems to be a problem with every single moisturiser on the market, my skin is dry, severely blocked pores everywhere and I really need to find something to keep my skin moisturised and wont cause additional problems??

Does anyone use Olay Non-greasy sensitive beauty fluid (http://www.amazon.co...43303606&sr=8-2) as a moisturiser with the regimen?

I used it for a year or so before starting the regimen and it worked well but I am not sure if it contains ingredients which causes acne, I have switched to Eucerin for the regimen but it is expensive with a very small amount in the bottle and stings like hell for the first 10 minutes of applying.

thanks

The simple brand isn't bad, from the last time I used it, I don't think it broke me out.

I've been using aloe vera gel by Banana boat. It's suppose to be for sunburn, but it calms down my irritated red skin a lot!

It's supposedly good for scars too, although I haven't used it long enough to see if it is or not.

Cheers for the advice.

It seems to me 'simple' has alot of bad ingredients in it though =/

Ive been looking at aloe vera gel, is it very moisturising?

U can try products from Liz Earle UK specially their super skin concentrate and mineral sunscreen. Their products are all natural and high quality.

Also try dermalogica intensive moisture balance...

http://www.dermalogi...balance-16.html

Contains no nasty stuff (no artificial fragrance or colour).. and is ultra rich yet doesn't clog up my pores..

I also add a few drops of jojoba oil and my skin has never looked better Posted Image

Would love to find something cheaper that does the same job... but have not found anything that moisturises to the same extent, so have always gone back to using this one.

I have combination skin, dry once washed and oily for the rest of the day. When I say dry, I don't mean flaky, more of a tightness.

I have tried what seems like hundreds of moisturisers. The problem that I have found is that no matter what type of moisturiser I use, my skin immediately looks greasy and shiny. I'd say 90% of the moisturisers I've tried made my skin feel tingly and uncomfortable.

The only moisturiser that agrees with my skin is "Garnier Pure Long-lasting Shine control Sebum Contrôle". This is a mattifying moisturiser. The only problem with this moisturiser and every other mattifying moisturiser I have tried is that it leaves a residue in patches once applied. But for years I've learned to include removing the residue as part of my daily routine. It sucks and is time consuming but it's the only moisturiser that completely transforms my skin.

I'm always so scared to try new moisturisers because it's upsetting when you spend a fair amount on a product and it completely does not agree with your skin. It's a waste of money and hope. I've wasted a small fortune for sure.

I wish I could find a mattifying moisturiser that actually does just that but doesn't leave a patchy residue behind.

I've tried the simple range, just leaves the greasy look once applied. I use E45 on my hands and it really makes my hands greasy so I wouldn't dare put it on my face.

I've also tried the Loreal range for men, the mattifying gel stuff for ten quid a tube. The mattifying properties did not work at all. Again the gel peeled off in patches.

Somebody recommended a seaweed mattifying moisturiser sold by the body shop. Might give it a go, think its around the 7-10 quid price range.

If anybody can recommend a good mattifying moisturiser that they have had good experiences with please let me know!

Thanks for the heads up. Gave it a go and it works. Have to put a lot on though, and it is very greasy, so am using it as a night cream only at the moment. Hasn't broken me out yet (although it contains methylparaben which is a possible irritant) so am quietly confident it'll be ok (been using it for a week). Works out a lot cheaper than the moisturiser i was previously using (dermalogica intensive moisture balance which was about 15x more expensive!) Have been looking for ages for something to replace it. Have tried them all.. but nothing would work as well on my super dry & sensitive skin.


Thanks again. You've saved me a fortune!

Make sure its pure jojoba oil, and you should be ok.

I use Tisserand Organic Jojoba Pure Blending Oil which i get from Amazon.

Fushi and Neal's yard remedies both have high quality jojoba oil and are organic.

They are the two best i've found in the UK. They post to all of europe and use paypal.

I recommend going easy on the jojoba oil to begin with, assuming it's your first time using it. I know some have had great results with it, but it caused me to break out terribly (I do tend to have very oily skin, which may explain why).

I bought mine from Holland & Barrett, for what it's worth.

Just chiming in and saying that Simple's light moisturiser works for me without giving me anymore spots. It does an Ok job with BP dryness too.

Currently clear of acne with the occasional hormonal breakout. Check out my routines and progress updates here:

Treat yourself as you treat others.

I've been using this for about 3 weeks now, and I've had amazing results with it. It is very heavy, and somewhat greasy it has to be said, but it's really helped combat the dryness from BP, and it doesn't seem to break me out at all, unlike most of the other moisturisers I've tried.

Thanks so much for recommending it, as I probably would have ignored it otherwise (I've always gone for those moisturisers marketed as light, or oil free, or non comedogenic etc on the assumption that they were better for my skin - apparently not!)

^^^ totally agree. Been using it for about 2 months now and its FANTASTIC. Tried loads of others but this is about the only one that works for me, and doesn't break me out.

Should be on everyones shopping list.
