Does this clog pores? Does it cause break-outs? I am in desperate need for moisture to my face, but most products cause break-outs for me : (
I am 39 yo and I am on awful medications which literally changed my skin overnight. I can;t get off the meds, & they are honestly aging me by the day! I had flawless, firm, porcelain skin without any fine lines or wrinkles until last summer when I began to see progressive changes.I I now have extremey dry, sensitive, irritated bright red skin which breaks out easily when i try moisturizing treaments. I have tried the best moisturizers, serums, oils, etc, but nothing is working and I now have very deep wrinkles all over my face. I used to use several different top line preventaitve anti-aging products which were wonderful. Then one daya routine product I ised for years caused a bad burn on my face requiring medical treamtment. I thought it was a fluke thing, and when it happened a 2nd time, resulting in very deep wrinkles weeks later in the areas where I had the burn, I THEN REALIZED MEDICATIONS HAD CHANGED MY SKIN!?! Sadly, I have been told my new sensitive and crepe paper thin skin is irreversible. I have not since been able to find a product to moisturize my newly dried skin which always looks parched w/ patches of irritated dry skin. I did find a couple of moisturizing treatments which fianlly helped, but not so mcuh because I then woke up with awful acne and black heads alll over my face the following AM. Does it sound like this may help me? I need moisture, but nothing that will burn my skin or cause acne. I literally get clogged pores in minutes from some products. : ) I assume oil free does not mean non-comedogenic. Does anyone think this is worth trying with my given situation? Thank you so much!!

on Moisture Surge Intense For Very Dry To Dry Combination Skin
I would ask Sephora for a sample and try this product. I really love it. I love the way it calms my skin when it's irritated and makes my skin feel really good again in just seconds.

I have extremely sensitive skin and everything causes me to breakout. I use this in conjunction with Acne Free for Sensitive Skin ($20 at the drug store) and my skin has never been clearer or more moisturized. I will warn you to keep it off areas of your skin that don't really need it. My chin is fine after using the moisturizer Acne Free gives you, when I added this to my chin it did cause a couple pimples. But my nose and cheeks (the driest parts of my skin) have done fine with this regimen.
You should buy 4 or 5 different brands of each product...4 cleansers, 4 serums,4 day creams etc. Alternate regemin so you only use each specific brand product once every 4 days...it changed my results dramaticlly!! Also try to find a french line called Avene...likeky will have to call co tofind a doc that sells it... I can use avene a few days in a row w mo problem.

I have very sensitive, and dry skin. This has never clogged pores, but moisturizers like nobody's business. You can try it & return it to Sephora if it gives you problems.
I would reccommend the moisture surge extended, not the intense.
Jurlique Herbal Recovery
Do NOT use Clinique Moisture Surge... I have attached photos of what it does for sensitive skin!

This product is non comedogenic and will not clog pores or cause breakouts, it is a gel cream that is best suited for oily skin types. You may want to try a slight patch test on your face first if you are worried about any possible reactions.
