In brief: Sensitive skin
Patients on Accutane have sensitive skin as the normal sebaceous glands are not producing enough oils.
Cerave and neutrogena both make moisturizers for sensitive skin which do not further block skin pores. Similarly cleansers from laroche posay work well. All these products are over the counter and if you need more help consult with your treating dermatologist.

In brief: Gentle
Your skin is dry from Accutane so a gentle cleanser such as cetaphil is good.
Moisturizer is preferably non comedogenic and contains no lanolin or petrolatum. Ultra light moisture dew is a good product for people on accutane.
