An ultra-rich phytonutrient moisturizer designed to combat dry skin. Stabilized Vitamin C helps to smooth the appearance of dry lines and skin damage, leaving skin soft and supple. Antioxidant enzyme Superoxide Dismutase, vitamins A and E, and Ginkgo help shield against damage caused by environmental assaults. Soothing Coneflower and Hydrocotyl, combined with extracts of Grape Seed and Wild Yam, help reduce the signs of prematurely-aging skin, leaving it smooth and firmer-looking. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.

How it works:
  • Vitamin A helps smooth the appearance of fine lines
  • Vitamins C and E, with Ginkgo Biloba, help prevent daily damage caused by free radicals.
  • Coneflower and Hydrocotyl, combined with botanical extracts of Grape Seed and Wild Yam, help repair prematurely-aging skin.

We recommend that first-time Dermalogica users visit an authorized skin treatment professional for a client consultation in an ULTA store.

      I have incredibly dry skin all year round, and this moisturizer has fixed that for me. I shopped around for a long time, but no moisturizer hydrates my skin as consistently and deeply as this one and doesn't clog my pores. I've been using it for a little over a year despite its high price (~70 dollars a bottle).B

          I think this is good for occasional night time use, but to heavy for day time for me, at least during this time of the year. I will keep until winter time, when it may be the right level of moisture, but for this warm weather, I will stick with the skin smoothing cream...I bought this one by mistake.

              I use products from both the Age Smart and MediBac lines. I can use this moisturizer after either and it hydrates perfectly. It's medium weight, absorbs quickly and gives you a dewy glow.

                • Q:

                  I have been using this moisturizer for a while now and I really liked it. However, I have just read it contains parabens. I try and stay away from these and wonder if you do another moisturizer that I could use that is about the same but without those ingredients.

                  I have a combination with acne skin. After I wash my face my skin feel really tight and gets oilier as the day goes by. I am currently using skin smoothing cream mixing with rosehip oil for my night routine and it works perfectly fine but I am looking for the thicker cream to hydrate my skin at night. Would you recommend this product for my current skin condition or it might be too much?
