              I have oily combo acne prone skin & searched years to find a good daily face lotion. I found this about 2 years ago and seriously can not go without. My skin rarely has breakouts anymore, and I have told all of my family/friends with similar skin issues about this product. I wish it wasn't so expensive, but I consider it an investment in my skin :)

                      • Q:

                        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".

                          A:

                          Thank you for your inquiry. 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.

                        I have hormonal acne all throughout my t-zone with redness. All the moisturizers I've used agitate that redness and make me breakout all over my chin. I am wondering which would be best for my skin without making me breakout, the active moist or the skin smoothing cream?

                          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 :)

                          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.
