      This moisturizer does a great job for how light it is. I've been using this product for 2 months now and it's been really great. I could foresee myself having to get a heavier moisturizer in the winter months because this may not be heavy enough, but it's absolutely perfect for Spring through Fall. Great product & great brand.

            I've used this product for so many years, perfect for combo skin. I began using when a dermatologist suggested it for my oily skin. 4 years later, I know have out grown my "oily" skin, and now have combination with a lot of dry patches. STILL without a doubt moisturizes and absorbs leaving my skin feeling fantastic. Only downside is the price, but until their is a cheaper alternative I don't mind spending a lot for a good moisturizer.

                        It sounds like your cleanser is too drying for your skin. After cleansing we recommend using MultiActive Toner followed by Active Moist

                    • Q:

                      Can I use this moisturizer near my eye area? Also, I break out every other day with one or two pimples and I am only oily on my nose. The rest of my face is either normal or sometimes dry. I also have a lot of acne scarring. Would you recommend this one or the skin smoothing cream?

                        Hello Sunflwr:

                        Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You may use Active Moist near your eye area. Active Moist is oil free and for skin of excess oil production for oily and combination skin. Skin Smoothing Cream is for skin normal to dry skin. For acne scarring we recommend that you use c-12 Pure Bright Serum in the day time and Overnight Retinol Repair at night time. We also recommend that you use Daily Microfoliant daily. All of these will help to even out skin tone, brighten your skin. You may use Special Clearing Booster to spot treat breakouts.

                      I was told by an Ulta specialist that I have combination skin, very oily T-zone and not so dry cheeks. I was given the dermal clay cleanser, daily superfoliant, and active moist moisturizer. I haven't seen any results as far as oil reduced from my face, could I possibly be over moisturizing? Where should I apply the moisturizer?

                        Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Here are a few options for you to consider....

                        Option 1. Oil Free Matte SPF 30 may be used during the day time, it is a moisturizer, spf and oil absorber in one.
                        You may use the Active Moist at night
                        Option 2. Clearing Mattifier may be used in the oily areas. It provides shine control and also prevents breakouts and clears congested follicles.This would be used under the Active Moist

                      I'm looking for a light weight, oil free moisturizer but noticed you use dimethicone which can clog pores as well, causing oily skin to become more oily and dry skin to become dryer. Do you have any products that do not contain dimethicone?

                        Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. The only oil free moisturizers that we have to offer that do not contain Dimethicone are from the Clear Start Product category which is formulated for teens.

                        These products are Skin Soothing Hydrating Lotion and Oil Clearing Matte Moisturizer SPF15

                        The Oil free moisturizers that we have do have dimethicone they are... Active Moist, Oil Control Lotion and Oil Free Matt. All of these products provide hydration and do not clog pores, they are designed for skin that has excess oil production.

                      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.

                        A:

                        Thank you for your inquiry. We recommend that you use Oil Control Lotion. This moisturizer will help to absorb excess oil trough out the day. We also recommend that you use Daily Superfoliant and Charcoal Rescue Masque on a regular basis to regulate oil production.
