Moisturizing causing break-out?

I have started up Moisturizing again and I started to break out on my chin and cheek area... My face is very naturally oilly so when I use the 2.5% BP my face doesn't get dried out and needs moisturizing. After about a week or so I might need to moisturize once when my skin starts to get flaky. Is it OK to Moisturize once or twice a week? Because when I started to put Moisturizer on my face after the BP, my face got super shiny and very Oily where I had to dab my face with a towel to get the Moisturizer off. So I'm just wondering if I don't need to moisturize as much?

If your face gets that oily then you can maybe not use the moisturizer unless you need to spot moisturize.

This is my regimen:

Cleanser = Johnson + Johnson Purpose Bar Soap

BP = On The Spot 2.5%

Moisterizer = Eucerin Skin Renewal with SPF 15.

I hardly moisturize also...but when i do i use Orgins stuff..it costs like $65 for a 1.7Oz bottle, but it lasts for like 4-5 months and does wonders..it takes redness away and leaves your skin look good.

But i mean my poor forehead hardly ever sees the light of moisturizer...only when i go places does it get some hydration..other than that it's BP, back to back to back to back..non-stop. My forehead is a trooper though, it's clear and takes 10% BP like a champ, my chin gets 2.5% because it's not as strong as my forehead.

your regimen is fine, and the moisturiser shouldnt be causing breakouts, unless your illergic to the SPF?

i also use eucerin, but the UK version with NO SPF and that doesnt cause breakouts.

btw, what on the spot do you use, the neutrogena or OXY?
