Proper moisturizer

Hey guys I just joined the site today, however I've been taking advice from you guys for a while. To start off I've finally decided to use the Regimen. I've been using it for a week and my results are simply remarkable. I've used many bp products before, so that's why I feel like I'm almost skipping the painful portion of the regimen. The problem I have is that, after I apply my bp my face feels fine, but it's when I apply my moisturizer I feel burning. I am using Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 15. Should I drop the SPF 15? It gets ridiculously sunny out here, I'm in North Carolina.

Thanks For Any Advice!!!

It's pretty common to have burning in applying the moisturizer stage. I do think that this happens more often with SPF moisturizers than non-SPF ones, but it can happen with pretty much any moisturizer--it really depends on your skin. You might try switching to a non-SPF moisturizer and then applying a zinc oxide or titanium dioxide-based sunblock on top of it, which will make it less likely that you will have this stinging problem.

Do you have any specific moisturizers I could try and get?

For a plain no-SPF moisturizer, I recommend the Acne.org moisturizer or Complex 15 Therapeutic Moisturizing Face Cream. I've heard good things about Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream (not the lotion, but the cream), too, though I haven't tried it myself.
