Good moisturizer??
May 8, 2004
Hi all :)

I've had acne problems since I was in about 4th grade. I used to get alot of big ol' zits all over my cheeks and jawline, but not anymore - thank god I've finally grown out of that stage. But now (I'm 29), my face is still covered, and I mean COVERED in these tiny little bumps.. they're not red or anything, they're the same color as the rest of my face, but they're still very noticeable. My daughter, who is 7, always asks me why I have "goose bumps" all over my face.. that's exactly what it looks like. I've tried practically every acne product known to man, but nothing works.

Ok onto my moisturizer question..

I don't use it, I've always had really oily skin.. Plus, I've never found one that doesn't break me out in zits or leave my face looking like an oil slick constantly. Everyone keeps telling me that I NEED a moisturizer. I'm 29, not getting any younger, and dangit I'm starting to get crow's feet :(

Even though my face is oily, it LOOKS dry. Does that make any sense? It has this really uneven tone to it, lots of red scars on my cheeks from my past acne problems.. grrr

So does anyone know of a good moisturizer for oily skin that won't break me out? My insurance doesn't cover dermatology, and I truly don't have the money to spend on one either.
