are you following the entire acneorg. regime ? moisturiser seems to really be a product that might work for one person and cause another a complete acne disaster ! i actually use the body shops vitamin e night cream both morning and night as well as switching it up with neutrogenas oil free sensitive skin moisturiser and these have been the ONLY 2 moisturiser that don't break me out and I've tried a million! if your using a treatment cream it might be that if not id give your face a few days break and try out a different moisturiser. you shouldn't be breaking out from a moisturiser. I found if i use a moisturiser that doesn't work for my skin it breaks out in these little flesh coloured bumps ? like clogged pores as soon as i stop it goes away. I think you just have to keep looking for a new moisturiser unless its from your cleansing or treatment?

If normal moisturizers break you out, you could try using an alcohol-free witch hazel toner like Thayers and use plain aloe vera afterwards. Both of those are really gentle. I do this often with no problems, though I do not have sensitive skin. The only face moisturizer I can use without breaking out is St. Ives Collagen Elastin formula. I like it because it's really light. (:
You don't need to give moisturizers any time. They either break you out or they don't.

try DML. My derm recommended it and I will never buy anything else ever again. It's light and absorbs quickly, never burns even if your skin is dehydrated. Perfect for acne or sensitive skin.

Hmm thats strange. What kind of reaction are you getting? Try discontinuing both then adding them back 1 at a time to see which one causes the reaction.

I have very sensitive skin, currently clearing on Spiro and Doxy. My skin has balanced out since adding in DDF Glycolic toner after washing, treat with BP and then use a few small pumps of Cerave PM. All the other moisturizers break me out as well. I've tried Cetaphil, other Cerave lines, lachydrin 5, clean and clear, you name it. So far this is very light. The glycolic really is the savior in removing dead skin cells while keeping hydrated. Witch hazel I tried but despite the fact its not suppose to dry you out, it does for me.
Hope this helps )

I use DDF Glycolic Toning Complex. You can find it at the skinstore.com, amazon.com, at the DDF website. It's a little pricey, but honestly when it comes to my face and treatment and I tend to splurge. Others on this board have used the Aqua Glycolic toner which is a bit more affordable and others I have seen use the toner in the Proactiv kit. Really helps get rid of that extra layer of dead skin, makeup, oil before your treatment without drying. Witch hazel just dried up my skin even though it is not suppose to.
Where do you get the toner?
