Recommendations for moisturizers for an eczema sufferer in Paris?

I have super-sensitive skin which is accustomed to a hot, humid climate, and I'm now in France, running out of moisturizer. I'm looking for recommendations for face and body moisturizers which I can acquire in Paris.

Some background: I was diagnosed with eczema several years ago while living in the UK, and my skin has been really sensitive ever since. Now, I use Cetaphil cleanser morning and night, and aqueous cream for dry bits around my mouth, and on my lips. I've had a reaction to literally every lip balm I've tried since my first eczema reaction, and aqueous cream is the only thing that doesn't cause a reaction on my lips. Aqueous cream isn't ideal as a moisturizer - it causes whiteheads, and doesn't really absorb well, but I'd rather that than feeling dry and itchy.
I'm on holiday in Paris now and am running out of aqueous cream... I bought some Eucerin body lotion, which I had a reaction to. I'd really appreciate any recommendations for moisturizers for my ridiculously sensitive skin. Thanks!
