      My skin feels so much better since using this moisture. It tended to have dry spots and oily spots. This is a good balance, my dry spots aren't a problem and my oily spots don't break out since I've been using dermalogica

                    Using dermalogica for 10 yrs now. People are always amazed when I tell them my age. They assume I'm 5-10 years younger. I used be a smoker for 18 years and we all know what that can do to someone skin. Firm believer that dermalogica is the best skin care line and reasonably priced for the quality.

                        Thank you for your inquiry. We recommend that you use Special Cleansing Gel as your cleanser to avoid feeling tight after cleansing. MultiActive Toner will help you moisturizer absorb and moisturizer your skin better. For moisturizer we recommend Skin Smoothing Cream to help hydrate skin without being too heavy.

                        Thank you for your inquiry. Active Moist will address dehydration and is light weight enough not to be heavy or sticky. To address excess oil we recommend using Clearing Mattifier in areas that are oily to absorb and reduce oil production.

                        Thank you for your inquiry. Skin Smoothing Cream is the best choice for your skin and will help to balance your hydration/oil levels. You can use Daily Microfoliant all over face and Breakout Control to address breakouts on chin. Active Moist is oil free and will not be enough hydration for your cheek area.

                      I have been a fan of Dermalogica for years and am going to switch back from trying Philosophy. I currently am an acne prone/combination skin type who is dry/irritated from Salicylic acid and other acne products. I use the Clear Start All Over Toner but am in need of a daytime moisturizer. I know its important but I avoid ones with SPF as i feel i break out from it. Would the Active Moist be best for me? I was also considering the skin smoothing cream. Thank You!

For best results cleanse, apply MultiActive Toner and then Active Moist. You will also benefit from using Charcoal rescue Masque 2 times a week to soak up excess oil and keep follicles clear.

This system includes C-12 Pure Bright Serum, Pure Light SPF50 and Pure Night. You can enhance the brightening benefits by using Daily Microfoliant everyday to exfoliate.

                        Hello Connie,

                        Thank you for your inquiry. Active Moist is an oil free moisturizer that is good for oily and acne prone skin. If you are looking a product that has sunscreen in it we recommend using Oil Free Matte SPF30 in the daytime and Active Moist at night. Oil Free Matte SPF30 will absorb excess oil and lightly hydrate your skin in one step. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

                        A:

                        Active Moist comes in two retail sizes: 1.7 oz., which should last 2-3 months, and 3.4 oz., which should last 4-6 months. It depends on how much you are applying and how often. With normal usage, these time frames are correct. The shelf life of this product is 3 years unopened and 2 years after it has been opened. We hope this info helps!
