for the past few years, I have had a red face so this is not randomly out of the blue. However, I am on my 3rd month of accutane if that adds any details.

I currently am using cetaphil cleanser and the moisturizer, and have been for a couple years. I believe that the moisturizer is making my face red. The redness is on my face and barely on my forehead, but it has a strange patter. It clearly loops around my eyes, and goes a little up my temples (if that makes sense.) I don't know what would create this exact precision, as my entire face would have to be red from the accutane. It has to be something topical. Is there any other moisturizer that you would recommend that is fragrance free, and does not leave me with a greasy feeling? Also, I like the matte finish of the cetaphil, I just don't know if I'm allergic to it or not.

Anyone else have this problem?

What do you recommend? Thanks!
