I have really sensitive skin, and it's rather soft naturally, but after cleansing, I still need a moisturizer that absorbs into my face.

I use cetaphil right now but I don't like how it feels, it's too thick, cakey, and doesn't seem to ever absorb into my skin, which makes me feel as though I am about to break out (even if I do or don't, it's the greasy feeling I hate). Plus it makes me shine all day!

What moisturizers are safe for the face (non-comodogenic), that I can find over the counter (walgreens, cvs) and will absorb into the skin fast without feeling greasy?

I like how aloe vera gel absorbs into the skin fast, but it doesn't leave me too moisturized.

I searched, but didn't find anything to my liking.

Any help would be greatly considered and probably will try it first hand Smile

So your answers won't fall on deaf ears. I promise!

Did you try Neutrogena? Also Eucerin is supposed to be good. Or you can check out what Trader Joe's has for lotion. Their products are great quality. (If there's a TJ's store near you, I mean.)

I have the Eucerin hydra-protect as an good old favourite. It's for sensitive skin and come in to formulations. I have only tried the one for normal/dry skin, but it is really nice and sinks in without any greasy feeling. Very Happy

I like Neutrogena Light Moisturizer for over the counter product. When I travel and forget to bring my toiletry bag, I always pop into a store for Neutrogena. It's cheap and it moisturizes rather well. Also, I've heard Eucerin has really good products though I haven't tried any. Hope that helps.

Pure Rose Hip Oil is anti aging and moisturising and is very inexpensive. Apply it to wet skin and it will absorb a lot better.

i ran out of this long ago, but i really liked it, especially for summer. i think it is great used alone for oily skins, and lovely worn over an oil for drier skins. i used to use this interchangeably with the osea atmosphere protection cream, just depending on what i was in the mood for!

If you live near an Ulta I'm currently in love with the Hydrating Moisturzer with Spf 15 (12.50usd). Sinks right in with no greasy feel....moisture is great (says its for combo skin) but it working on my dry winter skin. I'm also a fan of Neutrogena. I use their cleanser and light night cream....works wonders.

Merlot (if you can find it, some Walgreens carry it, have never seen it anywhere else). My holy grail. I need to make a giant raving post about this sometime. lol. Fab for dry-supersensitive skin that's breakout prone.Very Happy

Aveeno Ultra Calming Lotion SPF15 - tons of moisture, smells terrible. Won't break you out.

Btw, most drugstores have really good return policies, so don't be afraid to try something. Just save your receipt.

For OTC, I like Olay's moisturizers. The original, regular one for normal skin. My brother uses the sensitive skin formula and he seems to like it.

Oils are also great. I like jojoba, sesame, coconut, rosehip, and grapeseed oils.

My derm. has always recommended Olay w/ spf (they have sensitive skin version, too) and he said Neutragena's skin lotions are pretty good, too. Both come in huge bottles that last forever.

Cerave is great! My dermatologist recommended this to me several years ago, and I like it a lot more than Cetaphil which wasn't moisturizing enough.
