Best Moisturizer to use with Accutane (Isotretinoin)

Recommended Posts


I started taking Accutane around a month ago, 20mg first 2 weeks and then 40mg a day. My skin is pretty much completely clear (Yay finally!) I saw massive improvements just 2 days in but I was wondering what Moisturizer would best suit this type of medication. Currently I am using them tubs of "Nivea Soft Refreshing Soft Moisturising Cream" 300ml I'll add the images below for details. I heard it was best to get a non comedogenic, is mine non comedogenic?
It doesn't block my pores or cause white heads and it quite nice to put on my skin I have been using it for a while now. but I noticed around 2-3 hours later another applying it my skin would be dry again and I would have to wash my face quick with warm water and re-apply, I might do this 2-3 times a day. 

So my question is, can anyone recommend a better moisturising cream that will last longer at keeping it moisturised so it doesn't dry out hours later (I don't use any cleanser or exfoliating stuff, just warm water from the sink or when I shower and right away Moisturise)

Thanks :smileys_n_people_3:
