Does the moisturizer have to be oil free?

Recommended Posts

I have started the regimen and have been using a cetaphil moisturizer that isn't oil free. It makes my skin soft and hasn't been clogging my pores. Will this X out the affect of the BP?

I don't think it should. If your skin is naturally dry than a good moistorizer is important. An oil-free is better for those of us(me) that have naturally more oily skin. I use eucerin when I can find it at my local pharmacy. Anyway, you should be able to tell right away(within a week) if a moisturizer doesn't react well on your skin. Good luck.

He He He....Funny thing happened to me...I bought a SPF 15 Neutrogena Moisture without realizing that it was not oil-free.

Today at work my colleague told me that my face looks burnt. Well actually it looks more glossy. So now I know why we (those with oily-face) should use an oil-free moisturiser. Oh well, guess I should throw away that thing.

Unfortunately I cannot find a good SPF moisturiser here in Malaysia (there are, but they are not oil-free).
