Jojoba oil smile.png I know it says oil but it's actually a waxy ester smile.png It doesn't clog pores and has an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin. You only need a couple of drops to cover your entire face, and it's (structurally speaking) extremely close to sebum. It reduces the irritation from acne treatments and absorbs quickly and well so it goes great underneath make up. It's the only moisturiser I've used that hasn't broken me out more.

Guys. I said clearly on my original post not jojoba oil. I tried it and it made me break out really bad in cystic acne.

I always used Green Tea Moisturizer from Proactiv or anything light with Green Tea, and always worked to hydrate without causing more pimples and works really well under makeup.

Lol, what's up with all the jojoba oil suggestions?

Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel doesn't break me out.

I did a blend of 2 oz rose hip seed oil, 30 drops lavender essential oil, and 30 drops rosemary oil. It's incredibly gentle and it smells lovely. The rose hip seed oil has a high concentration of vitamin A, which is the active ingredient in retinoids. This is a much gentler version of the same benefit of faster cell turnover. Rose hip seed oil works wonders on scars as well.

Actually, you didn't when we posted, you changed it afterwards. Nice to see people being grateful for those that try to help them though.

Personally my skin loves Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion which you can buy in the pharmacy section of Boots stores. smile.png

And how!

I hated their cleanser and steered clear from them for a while but found that it's the only lotion that doesn't break my face or body out. It's wonderful. :3

yeah i was mistaken, I said it in another topic about moisturizers. my bad. but yeah. sorry jojoba just didn't work for me.

its nice to hear people had luck with cetaphil, I had really bad luck with them.

unfortunately most of the suggestions made here I can't seem to find them. I may look into that proactiv green tea one.

As of now, I am using eurcerin range. been quite nice so far, but my skin is still dry.. maybe from my foundation.

Their moisturizer doesn't have SLS in it.. that's a cleaning agent and would be found in a cleanser.
