can someone help me out with a good moisturiser

7 posts in this topic

i need a good moisturiser to pu on my face, my skin is dry in the morning and in teh evening its oily, so basically i have combination skin, i am using quinoderm cream 5 which has got 5% benzoyl peroxide and i use it at night only. i am washing my face with valderma soap. i went to the boots website and i found a couple of moisturisers for acne prone skin:

Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturiser

Clearasil Total Control Daily Skin Perfecting Lotion

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Oil-Free Moisturiser

these are the 3 i want to try, i need some advice about it first, i need to know if it would moisturise my skin but not make it oily.

Hi,

I am currently using quinoderm as well and find my skin VERY dry. The best moisturiser I have found is clinique's dramatically different moisturising gel for oily skin. It doesn't make my skin oily or give me spots and it really helps my skin from flaking.

A cheaper option I found good for me was simple's sensitive moisturiser, this is really light and doesn't make me oily but doesn't moisturise as well as the Clinique.

Hope this helps

CeraVe moisturizing cream in the tub. It's a nice thick but light non scented silky lovely cream that doesn't leave your skin shiny or oily looking. Plus it absorbs quickly.

I personally dislike the neutrogena one. It is very thick and greasy (even though it is oil free!) and doesn't do a great job at moisturising

Just my opinion

I use Cerave normal/dry lotion. It instantly sooths any flakes. It also doesn't clog pores and is gentle. It doesn't have any acne fighting ingredients, but it helps calm the skin which helps acne heal.

I like clean and clear dual action...it hasnt broken me out, and i've been using it for about two months. Its not as moisturizing as CeraVe, but i found Cerave too thick for me and it broke me out.
