What moisturiser do you use on Tazorac?

I have just started Tazorac and am only applying it twice a week for the next week or so and then increasing it to every second night and then hopefully every night if I tolerate it.. My skin has been increasing it's oil production slowly over the last few months after coming off Roaccutane 10 months ago. I have had congestion developing in my T-zone due to this and some breakouts so my doctor has suggested using Taz and then just spot treat with another topical, Eryacne.

Already, I feel like my face is drying out and so I was wondering what is the best moisturiser to use on this area. I have been experimenting with a couple of moisturisers as my skin has change from Normal to slighty oily and it seems that up until Taz my skin is better when using nothing to moisturise my T-zone. My question is, as my skin dries out on Taz what is the best moisturiser to use that won't clog my pores. I used cetaphil and Sunsense daily face moisturising sunscreen while on Roaccutane but should I use similar products for Taz as since Roaccutane they have caused me to breakout as they are too heavy for my changing skin? Does that make sense as I am a bit confused myself. Any advice would be great.

No reply???? Come on Tazzers what moisturiser do you use? Also did you moisturise after or before you applied Tas or not at all? Do you think this contributes to whether you break out or not initially?

I have very oily skin so almost every moisturizer I use just makes my skin look even more shiny. I like Dermalogica's Intense Moisture Balance even though it takes about 3 hours to absorb into my skin- unlike other ones where they just straight chillin on my face.

I use purpose oil free 15% uv moisterizer. It works good. Keeps skin moisterized, skin doesnt get all oily, and has uv protection which is good when using tazorac.
