Or should i start with a normal one ? And what exactly should i look for... it should not be oily of course but is that everything ?

thanks..

Since you are new to the Regimen, I would recommend one of the non-AHA moisturizers.

You can view the list here: http://www.acne.org/findingsupplies2.php#step3

After a month or so if your skin is handling the bp fine you can move to one of the AHA lotions if you want to, but I would not do it before a month. Give your skin time to get adjusted to the benzoyl peroxide.

Dan's new moisturizer is not available yet. This person needs a moisturizer recommendation now.

When Dan's is available, I'll mention it as an option. :D

:eh:

anyways.... i'm using cetaphil's moisturizing lotion, and i like it just fine. it is a bit on the thick side, but it really works. i also use a moisturizer with an SPF 15 by Phisoderm (when i go out) which i love. the only SPF lotion i've tried that isn't greasy! plus it really smooths out my skin. you might want to get an SPF lotion too if you're going on the regimen since the BP makes you very sensitive to the sun.

Hm ya the thing is I can't get these ones here...

Ah and today i was in "Body Shop" (they sell like soaps, cleanser and everything) and he said my face looks horrible and i should stop this regimen... then he gave me some examples of cleanser and moisturizer and said they would help me so much.

The thing is the tubes are so small the would probably last one week. And they cost 15€ -.- so that would be insane...

He also said my cleanser should be the thing that makes my skin so dry and told me i should never use a normal cleanser that can be bought in drug stores and so... :/

I'm so confused and just don't know which moisturizer i should go for :( but my skin is killing me right now and the icing on the cake is that i'm going to Italy tomorrow ...

i'm frustrated...
