Post need a good moisturizer

hey all, i've been using proactiv's moisturizer but it's not doing such a great job moisturizing and it's too expensive, even though i do like the fact that it doesn't break me out. i'm willing to pay a decent amount of money but i'd prefer something under $15 if possible. i've heard good things about cetaphil and purpose stuff, so i was thinking about these. any suggestions? has anyone found that these make you break out? thanks.

aveeno. nothin' better than that. goes on smooth, feels 'light' and lasts a long time after you put it on. isn't oily either like cetaphil and some others. and you don't have to worry about it clogging your pores.

Hey Pixie,
The benefit you do have with the Proactiv one is that is has an SPF 15 in it as well as the oil free moisture. I do like that one as well and it does not contribute to flair ups for me. I am also interested in finding another moisturizer out there drug store related because I am no longer using the PA line and sick of ordering it. Hope we find one.

Yes, in fact YOU MUST use Moisturizer on your face or you will probably break out even more without it. Lotion is "water" not oil and your face can always use water...dry or oily.
