                    I researched his product before buying and it effectively hydrates my oily combination skin. I wanted one product for my whole face and this does the job. My face dries out in winter and this helps a lot. Sometimes I have to use two pumps on particularly dry days, but I don't mind.

                          Hi! You are very wise to wear sunscreen, so this is a great question. You can absolutely wear sunscreen over this moisturizer. You may want to try Clinique City Block formulas. They are very light weight on the skin.
                          If you prefer an all in one, you may want to try Clinique's Smart moisturizer. The daytime formula contains an SPF in the moisturizer.

                          Hi! Thank you for your question. Can you tell me more about the dryness you are experiencing? Is the dryness tightness that you actually feel in the skin, or is it flakiness that you see on the surface of the skin? Oil is one of the factors that cause acne, so you are smart to use all oil free products. Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel should offer nice oil free hydration for your skin that won't break you out.
                          If the dryness you are speaking of is flakiness that you can see, vs. tightness that you feel, I suggest adding in chemical exfoliation. For example, you may want to try Clinique's Clarifying Lotion, Clinique's Turnaround Concentrate, or Clinique's Turnaround Overnight Moisturizer. Thank you for your question and have a great week!
