Non-comedogenic: I am glad to hear that you understand that despite acne or oil-prone skin, it is very important to moisturize daily. The key to a good moisturizer is to ensure it is non-comedogenic or non-pimple forming. Cetaphil, cerave, neutrogena and aveeno (oatmeal) all make great moisturizers that fall into this category.
