A moisturizer with Tazorac?

Can anyone recommend me a good moisturizer to use while on Tazorac? I'm looking for something light that won't make my face appear oily or sweaty.

Also, does anyone know if you can use moisturizer immediately following the application of the Tazorac? I believe that my dermatologist said that this was an option but I'm not entirely sure. Confirm/deny?

Re: A moisturizer with Tazorac?

My daughter is using Taz and was told she could use a moisterizer if needed.
She really doesn't need it right now. Her skin is used to the taz and at this time of year with the heat and humidity here, her skin is not dry. But during the cold weather when it is dry, she dabs on moisterizer only on the dry areas of her face. She uses Cetaphil moisterizer...Purpose is another good one. Both are readily available and cheap. She waits like 30 minutes after using the Taz to apply.

I like Purpose. I'm currently using Prescriptives oil-free for sensitive skin though.
