better moisturizer for tazorac dryness?

I'm on an antiobiotic, BP and tazorac. The redness and dryness from the Taz is killing me. I've been on it now for about 5 weeks (not the first retinoid I've been on). The problem is if I reduce to using the taz to every other night the pimples start coming back. so while i'm acne free, i look like a lobster and it HURTS.

I've tried using La Roche Posay touraine moisturizer, but not strong enough. I've been using cetaphil, but still not moisturizing enough. any suggestions?

i'm a big fan of dermalogica's intensive moisture balance (http://www.dermalogica.com). it's expensive but it moisturizes like no other. you can always try a sample if you're close to a "pure beauty" shop or something like that. good luck! i'm on tazorac too and it sucks going through this dry red, totally uncomfortable period.
