      Comments about Dermalogica Active Moist:

      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.

                I am originally from a mediterranean country. I lived in Europe and Maryland for several years so my skin glows when I live in humid places. After I moved to Lubbock, TX, my skin attacked me. It has still been having a huge crisis now but I am glad I found the best moisturizer because I have never used a moisturizer in my life. I love how this moisturizer doesn't smell full of parfume like the others. It leaves the skin super soft, it is so light and not greasy at all. I think it is quite pricey and that was the reason why I took one star off.

                  A bit pricey, but absolutely worth it. Goes on so smooth, doesn't clog pores, smells decent, hydrates, and doesn't feel too heavy. You don't have to use a lot, which makes it last longer

                    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?

                      Hello Wyatt:

                      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?

                    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.

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.
