Hi all, I've been using a prescription cream called epiduo (, it's a mix of adapelen and benzoyl peroxide), for about three months alongside antibiotics. I'm really struggling because the Epiduo thins and dries the skin around my eyes, making it really sore and red. I've tried using 8-hour cream, vaseline, double base, all of which start to give me spots on the tops of my cheeks. Is there a product which isn't oil based and works as a moisturising barrier cream? Or does anyone else have experience of protecting eyes from differin/adapelen/acne treatments?

Any help or advice really gratefully received!

I would recommend that you follow the prescription but if in need of other solutions. There are still other ways to help you.
