Question Non-Comedogenic moisturizer causing cyst bumps?

Hi, sometimes when I apply Cetaphil facial moisturizer I get some cyst-like pimples on my cheeks (no where else). Right now, my cheek is red in areas because it is dry and irritated, but I am afraid to put on moisturizer since I think it may contribute to more pimples. Has anyone else noticed this, or could it just be a coincidence in timing that I get these pimples a few days after applying moisturizer? Thanks.

Re: Non-Comedogenic moisturizer causing cyst bumps?

You must have missed my post about Non-comedogenic labels being misleading. Nothing that says non comedogenic is guarenteed. It only means the product does not have any ingredients KNOWN to clog pores. It all depends on your skin type, and therefore one thing may be comedogenic to you that's not to me. Keep using it for about two weeks and if it continues or gets worse stop using it. Just search my posts and look for non-comedogenic label is misleading, to read what I and others wrote.

Thanks for your advice. I never knew that "non-comedogenic" was such a subjective term, but that maybe explains why the moisturizer makes me get more pimples!
