If i'm remembering correctly, the Curel lotion you are talking about is made for the body. Usually body lotions are more likely than facial lotions to have pore-clogging ingredients and oils. A better bet would be to find a gentle, oil-free, noncomedogenic (non-pore clogging) facial lotion. There are a lot of lotions to choose from. Applying the lotion twice a day would probably be a safe bet. Another important thing is to use a moisturizer with SPF during the day time. Using any topical acne treatment, including Differin (which i have used before), it is really important to protect the skin from sunburn. The skin is more fragile when using topical acne medications so preventing a sunburn is a good thing to do to prevent redness and further irritation.

My personal preference for moisturizer is 100% jojoba oil. This stuff is really awesome. If you haven't heard much about it, you might be thinking "Um, but you just said to use oil-free moisturizer??" Technically, jojoba oil isn't actually an oil, but a wax. It helps unclog pores, it's very moisturizing, and extremely gentle. It doesn't have spf though. What i use for a daily SPF moisturizer is "Faces" by Banana Boat. It's SPF 23, oil free, and hypoallergenic. Good stuff, gentle too. If you have any other questions i'll be happy to try and help out. :)
