Well accutane will make you VERY dry so I'd try cetaphil moisturizing lotion, it is pretty greasy feeling if you aren't super dry, but on accutane it should be perfect because it moisturizes very well and doesn't cause breakouts at all. If it ends up being too much and too greasy then maybe try clean and clear dual action moisturizer if you are allowed to use salicylic acid while on accutane. Ask your derm first if you don't know. That is the active ingredient in it, but only .5% so it's not much. I love it. But you will likely need to use a lot of it.

I'd give both of these a try and see if one works for you! They are my favorites. But, like I said, I only use the cetaphil when my skin has been VERY dry, so see how you react to the accutane first.

I went on accutane and although I am a girl, I know you can get the men version of what I used. I used Clinique, and I had a daily regime I did twice a day, It was a normal cleanser, an anti-blemish moisturiser and a day cream for during the daytime and a night cream at night, i had no dry skin what so ever while using it. If you go to your local clinique store, in either Debenhams or a shop its self where they have a qualified clinique employee, they will do a skin test on you and ask you a few questions, make sure you mention your on accutane and you suffer from severe dryness so you need to get rid, hope it helps.
