Can You Use Products While On/after Accutane That You Previously Couldn't?

Recommended Posts

I'm starting accutane and I know cetyl/cetearyl alcohol breaks me out. It's in most moisturizers. I can't use Vaseline or Elta md either bc it seems like they just trap all the bacteria and make me break out. I know I'm going to need to moisturize when my skin starts getting uber dry, but I feel like I can't use anything really. Were/are you able to use products now that you're on accutane that you couldn't before?

I've had accutane twice now about to go on my third course and these two products are godsends:

Cetaphyl moisturising lotion - designed for super sensitive skin and is non-pore blocking

Caudalie SOS moisturising serum - an oil free really light weight serum again designed for sensitive skin - I'm not sure on the alcohol though so maybe double check
