Re: a good moisturizer

I was on another anti biotic and the moisturizer that helped me the best was the Olay.
I recommend 2 of them.

Olay Sensitive Moisture Therapy Lotion It has Aloe, Vitamin E, B3, B5, 100% Fragrance and Color Free and Non- Comedogenic.

Olay Complete UV Defense Moisture Lotion for sensitive Skin. It has Aloe, Vitamin E, SPF 15 and Zinc Oxide. Its Non- Comedogenic.

The main difference between the 2.
The UV Defense Moisture Lotion has Vitaminc C and SPF 15 in it.
While the Olay Sensitive Moisture Therapy Lotion has Aloe, B3 and B5 in it.
You dont really need SPF 15 in winter time.
Olay Complete Ultra-Rich Moisture Lotion For Extra Dry Skin. It has vitamins A, E, B3, pro-vitamins B5, Zinc Oxide and SPF 15. Its Non-Comedogenic.

Re: a good moisturizer

I have used other moisturizers but I have to say Oil of Olay on accutane has helped me. The one I take is total effects fragrance free. It is about 20 bucks for a small bottle so use wisely hahaha.

Re: a good moisturizer

Cetaphil cream is the best....I think it penetrates better than the lotion. A little goes a long way and it's what my dermatologist recommends. You can get it in your local drug or grocery store for under $10.. It's in green and white packaging.
