The olay complete all day moisturizer with 15spf for sensitive skin recommended by dan is good. Its non greasy and absorbs very well. It doesn't take care of flakiness though unless you add jojoba oil

Be careful with the olay ones! The ingredients are different in the UK to what they are in the USA and elsewhere! I looked through all of the olay moisturisers in my local supermarket and there was not one which was non comedogenic!

On Thursday I bought Neutrogena Visibly Clear Oil-Free Moisturiser and have been using it in the morning (I use Cetaphil at night).
It's free of oil, which is a bonus I guess
It easily absorbs, leaving you non-greasy
It's available at boots
It's quite expensive for the amount you get though
It doesn't really do much in terms of limiting the oil you produce
I'd recommend it, it's worth a try, and it smells good.
I don't know if you care about the comedogenity of products or not, but that moisturiser is not non-comedogenic. I know it says that it is on the packet but the ingredients contain Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Acohol, Palmitic Acid and Stearic Acid. They are all ingredients that cause acne and irritate the skin. I'm not saying you shouldn't use it if it works for you, but there's no way I would ever put that on my face haha.
Also, oil free isn't always a bonus. Only a few oils actually cause acne and many of them actually help it.
I've noticed that "oil free" products are usually filled with comedogenic fatty alcohols and useless silicones to replace the oil.
Many oils are non comedogenic and non greasy so that's something to keep in mind.

If you're willing to splurge a bit... Shesiedo Oil-Free Mattifying Moisturizer works wonders for me. It's about $36 for 4 oz, but I apply 2 pumps/use 2x/day, and after 5 weeks I'm only through half the bottle. The texture is more like a serum that glides over my skin, and dries within a minute. It's marketed as non-comedeogenic and I believe this to be true from personal experience. I have very sensitive skin, so any allergens tend to aggravate my skin. This moisturizer has never caused me ANY problems. It is oil-free, so if you have any dry skin I wouldn't recommend this for you. You can actually feel the powder particles if you rub your fingers together, but thankfully it just dries out my combination/oily skin.
For the days that my skin needs an extra boost of moisture, mainly because of my topical medications, I use Clinique Dramatically Different Serum. Only as a last resort, because honestly I don't trust that brand of cosmetic facial care. Just my two cents
