I desperately need to hydrate my oily/dehydrated skin, but majority of moisturizers cause clogged pores.

The issue is oils and silicones (omg they are in everything now!!)..dimethicone, cycomethicone,trimethicone..I CAN'T USE THESE.

Oh and my skin is sensitive to fragrance, dyes, scents.  Massively.


I need a oil free, silicone, beeswax, waxes, shea butter, cocoa butter,Salicylic acid free moisturizer with and without spf.



A Few Products/Brands I have tried and do not work for me

Neutragena(everything over the counter)





Clear and Clear





Rx for brown skin

control corrective


Mario Badescu

Lavender/Essential oils

Hi. Have you ever found a moisturizer that's silicone-free without shea butter etc?

For dry skin, this is a god send. It's Obagi Hydrate moisturizer...as far as I know it contains no oils but it's the ONLY thing that keeps my skin moisturized all day. Will warn you though it's quite spendy, $30 a bottle.

Have you tried using a sodium PCA spray? You can get one on amazon. NaPCA is a humectant and the spray formulations I've seen usually don't have silicones. 

Winter routine: 

CeraVe hydrating cleanser

 Clarisonic every other day

1 pumps CeraVe PM

DHC Water Base Moisture  (A LIFE SAVER for Chicago winters!!!)

CeraVe Lotion

MAC Studio Sculpt in NC42 (sometimes) 

CeraVe hydrating cleanser 

DHC Water Base Moisture

1 pumps CeraVe PM

CeraVe Lotion

Dan's BP or Tazorac (every other day)

Look at 100% Pure's line to see if they have an oil-free moisturizer. All of their stuff is silicone free, at least.


If that fails, you can just use straight hyaluronic acid or glycerin as a humectant. My grandmother used to moisturize her face with pure glycerin and water. Pure aloe vera juice might be another option.
