Moisturizers other than Dan's new moisturizercanada

I have spent the past 2 months stressing over what to use instead of Dan's new moisturizer. The new moisturizer was colouring my skin (becoming yellower and yellower..) and making me break out because it was impossible to keep my skin moisturized.
I did try to use 3 pumps, then 4, then 5. But it just felt like I had 5 layers of moisturizer on my face, so I finally decided to go out on an adventure to find another moisturizer that worked for me.
I tried Clean & Clear's Dual Action, Spectro, Cetaphil, Neutrogena, Nivea, Loreal and Audrey's Organics.
None of them worked as I either started getting whiteheads again or my skin started to dry out.
Then I decided to try Olay. I read a few posts about Olay's gentle formula, but I couldn't find it here in Vancouver. So, when I went to Walmart, I read the labels to find a similar one. I bought Olay's moisturizer for Sensitive Skin. It is in a white box with green marks on it here and there, and it comes in two sizes (I think 119mL and 160mL?). It cost me $9 before taxes at Walmart.
It spreads easily (it is much watery in texture than Dan's new moisturizer) and it moisturizes my skin very well. I'm not sure what kind of skin I actually have - oily + dry areas all over, but I do break out everywhere, not just oily parts. I'm convinced it's some alien type to make me suffer - I don't even think it qualifies to be Combination.
I use it twice a day, morning and night. I wear Covergirl's powder (for sensitive skin, green compact) on top and don't use any other make up other than eyeliner. I am using Dan's cleanser and BP still. However, I don't use 2 pumps of BP twice a day: I use BP at night, and use one pump.
I just thought that this might help others who are also finding Dan's new moisturizer unhelpful. Also, the shipping fees are rising pretty high, so I'm trying to replace Dan's cleanser in time as well.
