Hi everyone,

I need some help on finding a good moisturizer for my face, which is combination, however my t-zone is super, super oily and acne prone...I constantly break out around my chin/lip area...I am looking for something that is non-greasy and will not cause more breakouts than I already have. An SPF would be a big plus as well, as spring time is coming...I have tried the MD formulations sunblock and B Boat Vitaskin, but they both made my face look shiny/greasy. Sad I am currently using MDF Adv. Hydrating Complex Gel for moisture...but this is good but now that I am using Retin-A my face dries and slightly peels more than the Gel could help. Oh yea, and if it is anti-wrinkle that would be great too as I see some wrinkles creeping up on my face.

I tried Avon O2 Pure Oxygenating Complex with SPF 15...I thought, "Great...sun protection and moisture"...Bad Idea...It was greasy and made me so bad...I was still breaking out 3 weeks after I stopped use!

Price is not an issue...What I am looking for is quality...I really appreciate all the help I can get...Thanks Very Happy

I have tried countless moisturisers, and at 41 still have oily skin and sometimes find nothing at all is best for me! Recently though I bought cliniques sheer city block in spf 15, and find it pretty good. It worked best for me when I applied it onto damp skin (I spray a little Evian on first!) although if I was outdoors for long would probably apply on dry skin. It makes a lovely base too for foundation like this, and the titanium and zinc formulation hasnt caused breakouts for me.

Try Dermalogica's Active Moist or Oil Control Lotion. Both are SUPERB in controlling oil but the Oil Control Lotion can be a bit drying (it contains salicylic acid I believe). Active Moist is phenomenol -- great texture without leaving that greasy feeling. Also try Yonka's Pamplemousse for normal/oil skin at night time -- it's a bit more moisturizing (oily skin still needs moisture) but not over-reactive to cause acne. I use Active Moist or Oil Control in the mornings and Pamplemousse at night time.
