Suggestions On A Good, Cheap Moisturizer For Very Dry Skin

4 posts in this topic

I need some suggestions on a moisturizer. I just ordered the regimen kit, and as it has bp in it I need a really hydrating lotion. I used bp through proactiv and it made my skin sooo dry. I thought I had a good lotion (I am using Eucerin Daily Protective). It works well when I'm not using bp, but as soon as I do use bp this lotion doesn't cut it. Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated!!

Tea tree oil

Accutane (Claravis) 30mg

It sounds like you want/need something thicker and more moisturizing than what the "lightweight" lotions provide. Therefore i would suggest something petrolatum based. Aveeno's Daily Moisturizing comes to my mind, but really anything petrolatum based will provide a good moisturizing barrier.

I've been looking into many including Aveeno. I've also heard mixed reviews of cetaphil, ceraVe, Olay and Neutrogena
