What's a good moisturizer to use with retina micro?

Hi. I'm looking for a moisturizer to use in the morning, while using retina micro .001% during the evenings. I'd prefer that it be a drug store brand rather than some fancy online product. I'd also like something that doesn't give that "oil-slick" look or clump when applied.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Cetaphil Cream in the green tube. A little goes a long way.

The retin-a micro website says: "Use a light moisturizer, preferably one that is non-irritating, hypoallergenic, fragrance-free and non-comedogenic. The moisturizer should have a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 15 or higher to protect your sensitive skin from the sun's rays. Try Neutrogena® Healthy Defense® Daily Moisturizer SPF 30."

I use Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer w/ SPF 15. It doesn't make me break out and works like a charm!

I recommend Complex 15 Moisturizing Lotion. It's extremely light and doesn't leave your face shiny at all.
