  • I have had combination skin with blackheads, pimples and acne on and off for 25 years.
    I am using Arbonne RE9 daily moisturiser.
    The products don't contain mineral oil so they aren't clogging your pores.
    Take a look at my website
    Let me know if you have any questions or are interested in trying a sample

  • I have the same exact problem and everything made my face raw so what I do right now which is the best thing ive found to work is using Purpose products they are very gentle and good for oily skin, so I wash with the bar and use the moisturizer where it feels tight then over the acne I blot on calamine lotion [yes the pink stuff used for bug bites] and that seems to be working, my face feels so much better than with that proactive garbage. plus you can find Purpose at Walmart.

  • Sea kelp bioferment. It's a hydrophillic active so it will draw and hold moisture without any associated oil.

  • I'm with Alexis06, dermatologists recommend cetaphil cleanser and moisturizer. I use both and I don't have any breakouts.
