r that will not react with my retinol treatment?
I've read that you shouldn't use a moisturizer that contains exfoliants or Vitamin C when using a retinol. Any recommendations from gals currently using Retin-A or retinol treatments? BTW, I have normal-to-dry skin. Thanks!

I use Retin-A, and I generally avoid exfoliating products (especially with AHAs, etc.) on the nights that I use it -- but check with your dermatologist -- it may be okay to rotate certain ones with Retin-A.
Since Retin-A tends to dry the skin, I use extra hydrating moisturizers. I love Caudalie's Quenching Sorbet Creme, which is lightweight but super hydrating, even for dry, sensitive skin: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P27
For a non-Sephora recommendation, try La Roche-Posay Nutritic (which contains immediately absorbing biolipids, glycerin and shea butter for thorough hydration). This is probably the most hydrating product I have ever used.
