What's the best moisturizer for acne-prone skin?

I have an oily t-zone, normal skin on my cheeks, and bad acne on my chin and jawline. I couldn't get in to see the dermatologist till June, so while I'm waiting I'm eschewing all acne products and washing my face with Cetaphil. Although I'm 43, I've never used a moisturizer. Which products are the best for my type of skin?

  • Cetaphil lol. The kind with SPF for daytime (well, I use it at night, too). I use the bar (anti-bacterial) and the moisturizer, and it's the only thing that's ever helped my acne at all.

  • I used Cetaphil for something like 15+ years, but recently discovered Alba Botanica's Hawaiian green tea moisturizer. It feels amazing and reduces redness. My skin is clearer since I started using it.

  • Neutogena oil free moisturizer spf 15. Thats all I have worn and it works great. They have one for combination skin as well. Been wearing it for 25 years.
