facial moisturizer help!

i have a problem where my face likes to reject any moisturizer i put on it. by that i mean i tend to get small breakouts a day or two after applying it in certain spots. my face is generally breakout free except the times i moisturize.... and i NEED to moisturize because i get dry spots on the sides of my nose. I've tried tons of various brands and types and it's always the same. can anyone recommend a good moisturizer or alternative that I can try? i hate leaving my skin feeling dry for the fear that i might get a breakout

sometimes your skin just needs to get used to the moisturizer. You might breakout for a few days but it might go away once your skin adjusts. I never dismiss a moisturizer after just one use unless it's giving you a really bad breakout that could be considered an adverse reaction to it. If they are just like small bumps or white heads that form, I give it a few days to see if it's just my face getting used to it. You could also try moisturizers that moisturize yet prevent breakouts such as the Aveeno soy complex one for the clear complexion line? My brother has been using that and it has helped keep his face under control yet keep it moisturized.

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing lotion does it for me. I, however, have severely dry skin so I don't really break out. But they also have a gel form that is oil free so you can try that as well. There are some good reviews for it and I have been using it for over 6 years.

Sephora: Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion: Moisturizers

ETA: There is also a aloe/oil free gel called Moisture Surge that is good too, but it doesn't moisturize my skin enough so I ended up using the lotion more

I like using Aveeno Ultra Calming Daily Moisturizer. It has uv protection and for me, it suits my skin type. For the winter, it helped against dry red skin. But the weather is warming up a bit now (though it snowed yesterday) and I will see how it does in the warm weather

Try Aquaphor healing ointment. Its not a moisturizer but you can spot treat on the areas you have dry patches. Pretty sure this stuff will not break you out. It can be used on babies.

I use this intensive hydrating masque. treat/correct. skin care. Aveda - products that nurture. I have never had any break out issues with this. This has absolutley no oil in it at all and it clears my dry patches up immediately. This is a gel consistancy rather than creamy. It feels so cool and refreshing when you put it on your face. I apply a thin layer every night before bed. it never feels like you have lotion on your face.

I never could find a drugstore/department store moisturizer that I've liked.

I use Rosehip Seed oil mixed with Jojoba oil...works wonderfully!

I am the same as you - I will never break out except to products. I can use Cetaphil lotion (the one in the big tub) without breaking out though.

All of the ones listed with sunscreen break me out though - everything with s/s does. If you find a moisturizer with s/s (or s/s that moisturizes enough for you) that doesn't break you out, make sure to update this thread!

i did some reading up on some and the cetaphil looks like it might be good for me....
Quote:
Cetaphil cleansers and moisturizers are recommended by Dermatologists for clinically proven, effective and gentle skin care. Specially formulated for sensitive and dry skin types, each product is designed to preserve your skin’s natural protective barrier and retain the essential moisture it needs every day. Cetaphil’s gentleness means it is suitable for even the most sensitive skin conditions such as acne, eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, photo-damage and even baby rash.
i actually do get random eczema breakouts on my hands too once in a blue moon, so it might be safe for me. i worry sometimes about lotions and things i touch having a weird reaction on my hands during the applying process (like anything with bees wax in it, for example, completely messes my hands up with itchy bumps and swelling).

Oh, I forgot to add that I had eczema on my face and after using this (and a prescription cream) for awhile, it went away Its definitely fragrance free and very VERY gentle on skin. My skin doesn't even like salt water and it loves this stuff

I kind of don't like how Cetaphil feels on my skin so I skipped out on it.

Oh yeah, I used the Clinique one all throughout high school with zero problems. I had like two breakouts ever in HS, but my skin was a bit less sensitive then.

I agree, I use the Moisture Surge lotion though because my face is pretty oily, esp. in the T zone. I've used it forever and don't foresee changing anytime soon. Also, one bottle last me like 6 months.

^ I've tried the clinique and thought it felt greasy on my skin. I'm very particular about my face feeling greasy and the only thing that hasn't felt like that to me was the Aveda Intensive Hydrating Masque I suggested in an earlier post. Maybe it's just me and my OCD but I can't stand anything feeling greasy or oily on my face at all and every creamy moisturizer I have ever tried has felt that way.

reiterating what is said, both clinique and cetaphil are great choices. Ive used both for years. cetaphil is much thicker and probably works better, but i typically use the clinique one b/c its more manageable, and cetaphil only when i need something very hydrating. my skin reacts to most products after about 6 months of use, but has not to these.

btw clinique also comes in a lotion or gel form so maybe gel wouldnt be that greasy if you find the lotion greasy, personally i prefer it in the lotion form

I also want to add that the Boscia line (plant based) of products available at beauty.com quenches my dry skin (I have dry sensitive eczema-prone skin) and am very happy with it. I love the Vital daily moisturizer with SPF 15, it's very light (weight and scent) and non-greasy. I use the 3 step regimen..cleanser, toner, and moisturizer (one for day and one for night). Their products are free of parabens which I read can dry your skin further. They're a little pricey but a little goes a long way.

Aveeno positively radiant facial moisturizer is great too but it's lightly scented.

I don't have sensitive skin but a friend of mine does. The only line that works for me is Darphin but it's a bit pricey. I heard Avene line is good for sensitive skin too and you can find it at Shoppers.

I use Fresh AncienneCreme in the winter months in our extremem dry weather. It works great for me.

I've never seen a gel form. Do you have a link or the name? I love Clinique but I can only do gel moisturizers and I've never seen this.
