    Comments about Dermalogica Active Moist:

    I have adult acne and tend to use too many products to manage it which makes me skin dry. Discovered Active Moist after always buying store brand. It is noticeably more moisturizing. I won't go back to the cheap stuff again.

        I love this moisturizer so much. It's the only moisturizer that I have been using for the last 2 years. It does not break me out!!! I have sensitive skin and it goes perfect under makeup and leaves my skin glowing and soft. I will always go back to this product after using another moisturizer because this is definitely my favorite moisturizer.

            I was looking for a good moisturizer & spoke with an estatician at the store who recommended this brand. I took a chance & decided to buy it even thought I normally wouldn't spend that much money on a moisturizer. Glad I took a chance on it because it's been working great since day one!

                I have tried many other moisturizers and this one is the only one that does the job for my skin. I have combination skin and seems to get dry in some places and very greasy in others.. this moisturizer has a non greasy feel, clears up the dry patches, doesn't leave my skin feeling oily and leaves my skin feeling silky smooth . Worth the price and little bit goes a long way. Dermalogica has transformed my skin.

                  Never have I ever found a moisturizer that did not break me out until now! My skin has never felt softer and appeared more healthy. If you have oily skin but are afraid of looking like a disco ball within hours do not worry about this product doing that to you. I also use this in conjunction with their multi active toner. This moisturizer might not work for someone who has dry skin BUT dermalogica has heavier moisturizers in their product line.

                        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?

                          Thank you for your inquiry. Please exchange your Active Moist for Oil Control Lotion. Also, your skin will benefit from regular exfoliate and a clay based masque. We recommend Daily Superfoliant and Sebum Clearing Masque to help regulate your oily skin.

                        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".

                          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.

                          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 :)

                      • Q:

                        How does this moisturizer work under makeup? I have redness and dryness around my nose and mouth and a few other patches. But my nose and forehead are as oily as can be! I always feel like my makeup is melting off.

                          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.
