Whats a good non-greasy moisturizer?

Recommended Posts

I use Cetaphil ultra hydrating lotion, it always makes my face look shiny and oily, very unpleasant. I have pretty dry skin i guess so i use it everyday, a lot of it. Am i just doomed to have oily skin in order to counter the dryness? Or is there a moisturizer out tehre that doesnt cause break outs, keeps me moisturized, and isnt too greasy?

Well creams for dry skin usually have emollients that creates a sort of moisture barrier on your skin.These could be fatty alcohols and dimethicone for example. They're meant to hold in moisture, but have the unfortunate side effect of feeling "gunky" and possibly making you shiny

I'd suggest looking into serums.They absorb more completely.
