Need A Non-Clogging Moisturiser - Uk

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I've been using acne.org moisturiser for the past two months that I've been on the regimen and it has been pretty brilliant. I'm running low on it at the moment and as I'm from the UK - I'm wondering whether there's an alternative that's non pore-clogging and moisturises well.

I have tried Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion but it broke me out, unfortunately..at least, I think it did, because after a month of being practically clear, I broke out in a rash-like cluster after using it for two days.

I'm using jojoba oil as well, but I'd like something in addition to it, and preferably something that's available in the UK.

Any suggestions would be muuuuch appreciated! :)

cetaphil is awful because it contains ceteareth-20+cetearyl alcohol which together are very clogging.

Here are some with good non-clogging ingredients:

http://www.boots.com/en/LOreal-Paris-Triple-Active-Day-Multi-Protection-Moisturiser-Dry-and-Sensitive-Skin-50ml_1222354/ (the dry skin one is amazing and non comedogenic but the ones for oily skin are comedogenic)

I use Simple Oil Balancing Moisturiser (around £3-£4 from Superdrug/Boots etc..) really good at moisturising my skin without leaving it greasy or clogging my pores.It's gentle too so it shouldn't irritate any sensitive areas, I've found it's done wonders for the dry flakiness that can occur from treating breakouts with harsher products.

Good luck!
