    You might try Vanicream. You can get it at Walgreens. The dermatologist recommended it to me because it was designed with the most sensitive skin in mind (no fragrance, dyes, parabens, etc). I have extremely reactive skin (redness, bumps, peeling) and seem to be doing ok with it. Vanicream also makes a cleanser but I haven't tried it.

    You might also like Cerave. The lotion is pretty good and they make a cleanser too. I have used both before with no bad effects. The Vanicream just seems to do a bit better for me with the flaking.

    I'm using a Trader Joe's Facial Soap (or Cleanser, whatever), and Burt's Bees Acne Moisturizer
    Hair Type: I was thinking thick, fine 3A, but honestly I have no clue! I do know I have a super flat top, and frizz on the sides.

    I really like CeraVe PM.

    I've been dealing with this recently, what works for me is Mary Kay's Timewise moisturizer for combination to oily.
