Moisturizer help

What is a good moisturizer that doesn't make your face look shiney or greasy when you put it on? I have dry skin so I have to use moisturizer during the day but everything I have tried makes my skin look really oily. Any suggestions?

Re: Moisturizer help

The only one that I find works well for me is the Proactive Repairing lotion. You only need a small amount. It doesn't clog my pores or make my face look greasy. You could also just go into a pharmacy and ask for a moisturizer that is oil-free and unscented and won't clog your pores. I did that once and got a pretty good moisturizer, but I can't remember the name.

Clinique is the only one that i've tried that I really like. (The yellow stuff) Even the Clean and Clear Shine Control makes my skin look greasy. It's really not too expensive either. A smaller bottle is like $11 and I swear it lasts like a year. I saw that they have a gel one too now but i've never tried it.
