Serum for acne prone skin

I'm on month 3 of roaccutane and still getting nasty spots but my skin is very dry too. I am using a sample of clinique repairwear laser focus and I'm wondering if it may have precipated my current breakout. Does anyone have any recommendations for serums which don't break you out? (No 7 protect and perfect was terrible for this I recall). It doesn't necessarily have to be for dry skin as I won't be on roaccutane forever. Thanks.

I love Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair.

I've had the Guinot serums used on me during facials and they seemed ok, but I have only used them as one-offs here and there.

I have lots of samples of the Estée Lauder night repair so could give it a go but is it suitable for use in the daytime? Not sure why it is specifically for night...

I am prescribed zineryt for my spots and haven't found any serums which don't make things worse. I just slather on moisturiser.

I've been using Trilogy Rosehop oil for a couple of weeks. It's cleared up my old dry spots and hydrated my skin. I'm usually quite oily but this has improved my skin. I was worried about putting oil on my oily skin at first.

I do have some rosehip oil but stopped using it when I had a terrible breakout. Always hard to know if it's related though... I've also been trying clarinet lotus oil. What I really want though is a daytime non oily serum as I'd only use oils at night or I go too shiny.

Bravura Hylauronic serum is nice as is the Aldi q10 neither have caused me to have breakouts.
Superdrug have a new range for breakout prone skin called clearly youthful I think. I've not tried it yet but reviews seem good.

Thanks all. The superdrug serum is half price right now so think I'll try that in the first instance.

I use Balance Me it's totally natural and my skin which breaks out with most moisturisers and serums seems to love this.
