i've tried so many base creams to dissolve my actives for my do-it-yourself creams, but still haven't found something in which lilophilic (oil dissolving) actives, such as vitamin E, can dissolve in which don't cause my skin to look oily.
I think I need creams with oils in them in order to dissolve my actives which are lilophilic, but they are all so greasy. I have tried Aveeno and Curel as recommended by Dr. Todorov, but they are still too greasy and leave my face very oily and shiny. I've tried using gels, but they don't dissolve my actives. I even apply a mattifier such as monistat's chafing relief gel which contains silicones after I apply my DIY creams, but it only works for a short time before my whole face looks oily again.

Any good base moisturizers which can dissolve lilophilic actives and don't cause greasy, oily, and shiny skin??

One solution is to apply the DIY mixture before bed only, then wash it off in the morning so you face no longer looks greasy. Then during the day, apply only serums and gels that don't make your face look greasy.
