      Comments about Dermalogica Active Moist:

      This is my year round moisturizer. I have sensitive combination skin with an oil slick t-zone. This stuff doesn't make my t-zone greasy as some medium weight moisturizers do. During the winter I add a couple of the moisture hydrating drops after I've done my t-zone and it gives it that little extra boost the rest of my face needs during the winter.

          lightest weight moisturizer

          Comments about Dermalogica Active Moist:

          if you bought this and didn't like it, its probably because you shouldnt have bought it in the first place. get face mapped or ask a consultant, its the lightest weight moisturizer dermalogica offers. i have very combination skin, and i am a full foundation wearer so this is perfect for me because it absorbs quickly and isn't too much for my acne prone tzone. love to add the hydrating booster to it where more moisture is needed

              I have been purchasing this moisturizer for several years now and I absolutely can't be without it. It is lightweight, absorbs quickly and smells great. What I love the most is that it makes my makeup go on smooth and last all day with only a touch up by end of day. Highly recommend it. If you have dry skin you can probably go with the other version of it that is more moisturizing.

                    • Q:

                      Would active moist work on my super sensitive, combination, rosacea prone skin? I am using Dermalogica ultra calming cleanser and barrier repair and they are wonderful. Other products from ultra calming line do not work for me and are irritating.. need a product that would be more moisturizing than barrier repair, but not too heavy. Need something soothing, with some anti aging benefits preferably.

                        Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. We recommend you trying the Skin Smoothing Cream. It is a medium weight moisturizer that, smooths fine lines and promotes elasticity, shields against dehydration and pollution. It also has antioxidants to help fight skin-aging free radicals.

                      I have oily and sometimes combination skin with mild to moderate acne. I'm in the market for a new moisturizer and highly considering the active moist but I'm worried that it may cause breakouts due to some of the ingredients. Has anyone experienced increased breakouts due to this moisturizer or is it safe for acne prone skin?

                      I bought this today after telling the lady I have extremely oily skin. She said to get this because I have large pores and would regulate my oil production. I used it and while it feels good I'm still very oily. What would you recommend?

                      What is the difference between the active moist, intensive moisture and the skin smoothing cream? I have used the skin smoothing cream because my aesthetician recommends it, but I feel I need more moisture, so I'm looking at the intensive moisture product because of it's products name "intensive".

Active Moist is an oil free, light weight moisturizer, Skin Smoothing Cream is a medium weight moisturizer for normal and combination skin and Intensive Moisture Balance is a heavy weight moisturizer for dry skin. If Skin Smoothing Cream is not moisturizing enough for you we recommend moving up to Intensive Moisture Balance.

                        A:

                        Thank you for your question. The dry/tight feeling you are experiencing is called dehydration where your skin is lacking water moisture even though you produce oil. To help with hydration you will need a healthy cleanser that won't strip your skin of this moisture and hydration products to help restore the moisture. Here's what I recommend for your skin.

                        Special Cleansing Gel
                        Multi Active Toner
                        Skin Hydrating Booster or Skin Hydrating Masque
                        Active Moist
                        Solar Defense Booster SPF 50

                        I hope you find this helpful and if you have any further questions please don't hesitate to ask :)
