Which is the best face-wash and moisturizer for someone with acne?

Pick ingredients. Most over the counter acne products have the same few active ingredients, anything with salicylic acid is likley going to help, 2% is probably best for most. 10% glycolic acid washes can be helpful. Benzoyl peroxide washes can be great for acne, but hard on your skin, ie drying, redness etc. If you are having problems controlling acne, call your family doc! pick any non-comedogenic moisturizer.

Difficult choice. You'll need to get with a physician who's good at treating acne. Topicals are rough on everybody with acne. You'll probably get a systemic antibiotic such as tetracycline and a salicylic acid wash or retinoic acid prep or some other combination that you can tolerate. If you're this sensitive, the isotretinoin regimen may be far more than you can handle -- but if you can, it will be a huge help. Read more...
