Mattifying but moisturizing cream for very sensitive skin?

Because I mildly suffer from seborrhoeic dermatitis, I have to frequently use Nizoral shampoo as a facial wash once a day. Because this expectantly strips away my skin's sebum, I have to counter it with a moisturizer. It's a double-edged sword situation.

I've been using E45 for some time, but my skin is unavoidably (and infuriatingly) greasy at the end of the day. One theory of mine is that because E45 is strictly intended for dry skin, my skin reactively produces excess sebum regardless.

Products that both mattify and moisturize have been my focus, to moisturize my skin's initial dryness when washing off the Nizoral and simultaneously counter the nightly oil build-up with mattifying action. I've yet to find such a product which doesn't irritate my skin. My skin is extremely sensitive, it seems impossible for me to find one which doesn't utilize irritating ingredients.

I live in the United Kingdom, I'm looking for something affordable and reliable. I appreciate any assistance you can offer.

Hi, you can check out Creme Dila Creme's Day & Night Cream. They are non-greasy and quickly absorbs into the skin. - sniffytuna 2015-03-24 18:22

Hi, I know it's a bit late but better late than never!

If you're still interested, I've recently been using Boots Botanics Shine Away Mattifying Day Cream SPF 15.

For me it doesn't irritate, it stays relatively matte throughout the day (it doesn't work wonders but the effect is noticeable) and it keeps me moisturised (also under a fiver in Boots).

My skin isn't what I'd call sensitive, although it lets me know pretty quickly if there's something it doesn't like in my face cream.

I just uploaded the list of ingredients so it's searchable if you want to check it out, it looks mostly ok except it does contain Alcohol Denat :(
