Moisturizer: Which type to Use?

Hey all..

I'm just starting the regimen tonight, and I couldn't find any of the moisturizer suggested by Dan.. plus, I'm from Canada and all of the products needed for the regimen are $10+, so it's kinda expensive.. So, can anyone suggest a good moisturizer I may be able to find in Canada that is less expensive?

All's I have for a moisturizer is Vaseline Intensive Care, and I don't know if this is any good.. does anyone know if it is?

Any help would be greatful,

Thanks.

Make sure you find a moisturizer designed for the face, that is oil free and non-comedogenic. Most body moisturizers, like the one you mention, contain oil and can aggravate acne. Good facial moisturizers cost money, but it's worth it.

Hey Dan, you say that any moisturizer containing oil is not suitable?

However, I bought one of the moisturizers recommended from the regimen called Cetaphil and when I got home and read the ingredients it says it contains Macadamia nut oil.

Do you think I should use it or not? I was planning on using it after I shaved.

I get really upset sometimes with the price of acne care products as well, but you should not be stingy when it comes to investments with your face. Plus, a 4 ounce bottle of moisturizer lasts me a LONG LONG time anyway.
