Heavy Duty Non Non Comedogenic Moisturizer?

10 posts in this topic

I've been out of the acne game for some time so I'm not hip on the current products. I'm fighting a losing battle with very dry skin right now. Anything good I can slather on? Thanks!

Cetaphil! Fantastic moisturiser for very dry and very sensitive skin. Not comedogenic at all. I bought some after reading many great reviews about it on this site and I was really happy with it.

Our drugstore didn't have Cetaphil (wth, right?) but they did have CeraVe. I'm fully slathered and I already feel soooo much better. Thanks guys!

Cerave has "Ceteareth 20 and Cetearyl Alcohol" as the third ingredient! If it was down on the list it would probably be ok but it's supposed to be very comedogenic and it's number three on the list... I don't know how it doesn't make people's acne worse. Cerave also has "Caprilyc/Capric Triglyceride" which is not comedogenic in and of itself, but the oils in this ingredient is great food for bacteria that causes acne.

I second Cetaphil. Its very heavy and greasy which is perfect if you're suffering very dry skin from following the regimen. I agree with Samantha, cerave caused havoc with my acne prone skin, however many people on this site happily use it with no problems. Everything's personal....


After remaining clear for around 1.5 years following DKR (The Regimen), in March 2013 I decided to change to Epiduo. I use a pea size amount of epiduo each night, followed by a layer of topical antibiotic (Eryacne). I also apply Eryacne every morning and moisturise twice a day. After switching to Epiduo from the regimen I found that it took a good 3 months to get back to being perfectly clear again and now I might get one small pimple appear per month. I can live with that

I started following Dan's Regimen in September 2011 after suffering with acne for 20 years or so. I followed the Regimen instructions exactly and became 100% clear within 9-11 weeks. In December 2011 and after being consistently clear for over a month, I started to slowly reduce the amount of BP I used until I was only applying BP at night. My skin still remained clear however I sometimes switched to applying BP twice a day for a few days (perhaps once a month) if I felt a few under skin bumps starting to come up. I used acne.org products (including AHA and jojoba oil) and sometimes cetaphil moisturiser at night if I felt my skin was especially dry. In the gallery I show my week by week progress following the regimen.

I have heard very good things about the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream. It's very thick, creamy, and seems to have taken care of flakiness for most who use it. I'm actually gonna go buy it too... Maybe you can give it a shot?? It comes in a 16 oz. jar for around $10 at Target in the US.
