Really shiny/greasy skin

Okay, so I'm using cetaphil and tazorac, and my skin has become EXTREMELY dried out. If I don't have moisturizer on, my skin flakes like crazy, and it looks and feels horrible. So I got Eucerin Dry Skin Therapy in hopes to stop it, and it does, but it makes my face EXTREMELY greasy; I apply about 2 pea sized dots to my face and will shine all day long. It cannot be rubbed in, it will not absorb, it can only be washed off, which defeats the entire purpose of me even having it.

So is there anything I can do with this stuff to make it actually work normally, or should I just get a new moisturizer. I'm pretty desperate and will do just about anything; I've tried everything under the sun to get my face normal, but nothing is working.

Definetly try a new moisturizer. Cetaphil for me actually makes my skin worse and I don't really appreciate it. I use nutrogenia (don't know if I spelt it correctly) oil-free cleanser, and it's mild on my skin which is good cause I have très sensitive skin.

Sometimes however, you might have to try a lot of different moisturizers before you find the right one. (not all moisturizers will make your face shiny like Eucerin). good luck!
