What facial cleaners or moisturizers have you used?  I used cetaphil cream on the dry flaky patches on my face and it just started burning.   I dont try to wash it without knowing what I can use.... 

Also, Bio Oil?  Or just cocoa butter for stretch marks

Keep hydrated and Lanolin(sp) cream is good for dry skin.  not sure which if either are better for stretch marks since i didnt use anything for mine.  Aloe would also be safe for treating dry skin.  I used aveeno face wash during pregnancy.  I would wash face while in shower.

I wash in the shower with the apricot scrub helps take off the skin. I use a sugar scrub for the rest of my body that I make myself but this year has been horrible my whole body is patches of dry skin

I just use a clean and clear exfoliated face wash that helps get the dry flaky patches off my face then use cetaphil for after. That's weird that it is burning. Maybe talk to your doctor because I don't think that is normal for cetaphil a non-sented recommended face lotion to burn like that.

I use neutrogena naturals moisturizer for my face... its kinda pricey... 12 bucks for a bottle... but it really helps dry skin!!! And its not oily and doesn't clog pores.
