I would try two or three small drops of Josie Maran Organic Argan Oil in the evening. Wait 15 minutes and then apply the Benzoyl Peroxide Gel. It has amazing reviews and has worked wonders for me in conjunction with the BP Gel. In the morning I am using L'Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Face Cream. I never would have thought I could use Shea butter on my face without breaking out, but it also works amazing when applied before the BP Gel.

I use organic jojoba oil from a health store/natural market. Only 3 or so drops will do wonders! Thing is, you have to use a sunscreen in conjunction.

I cut back to once a day with this product because it was drying out my skin, and I moisturize twice a day now (after applying the gel and then again at night), and I use a moisturizing foundation. It is still effective for me using it once a day, and the other products I am using have made up for the drying.

Hi, there! My recommendation is using a moisturizer that is not oil-free and non comedogenic. I would not use an oil-free moisturizer with benzoyl peroxide, because it is a strong and drying agent. The benzoyl peroxide dries the bacteria and oil out of your pores, and keeps them clear. So you need to give moisture back to your face and unfortunately a oil-free moisturizer does not provide a sufficient amount of moisture to your face. Try using Eucerin Moisturizing Creme. It is really thick stuff, and so you only need a dab. Divide your face into 4 sections: forehead, cheeks, chin, and nose. Then apply just a dab to each section. Again I say, be careful how much you put on. You only need a small dab. To much, and your face will feel and look greasy. It's non comedogenic, fragrance free, and isn't oil free. Its actually made to soothe and moisturize dry and flaking skin from over- drying treatments. I hope this helps! :)
