FREE Age Smart Retinol Set w/any $60 Dermalogica purchase
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 terribly dry skin in the winter. WATER DRIES OUT MY SKIN. Every moisturizer I've ever used had an underlying grease to it and never moisturizer my skin well enough so it always felt crackled but greasy!!! This stuff is gold.

                  Comments about Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance:

                  I have been using this moisturizer in the evening, and it's very good for my sometimes dry skin. I am using several Dermalogica Age Smart products in my regimen, but this moisturizer was recommended to me as an alternative to the heavier Age Smart evening cream. I haven't tried that one, so I can't compare the two, but I can say this product is a wonderful, effective moisturizer. It's not greasy, it absorbs quickly, it doesn't have a heavy fragrance, and it lasts through the night. I don't wake up feeling dry or tight.

                    I've used this for years after I wash my face before I go to bed. It feels good and does a great job of moisturizing. I'm not allergic to scents but prefer little to no scent, so this is perfect.

                        • Q:

                          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?

                            Thank you for your inquiry. We would not recommend a heavier cream if you have acne. We recommend applying 4-6 drops of Phyto Replenish Oil under your moisturizer. This lightweight oil will knock out dehydration and keep your skin healthy without causing more breakouts.

                            Thank you for your inquiry. This is a heavy weight moisturizer for chronically dry skin. A better choice for your skin would be Oil Control Lotion. It is a light weight, oil absorbing moisturizer. You may add MAP-15 to this moisturizer to add anti aging benefits. MAP-15 is an oil free light weight vitamin C concentrate to help firm and tighten skin while preventing free radical damage.

If you feel this is too heavy you may consider switching to Skin Smoothing Cream. Also, be sure to exfoliate regularly to prevent clogged follicle that lead to milia.

                            Thank you for your inquiry. We recommend using Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 as a moisturizer during the day while using Overnight Retinol Repair. If you require more moisture while the Overnight Retinol Repair is on your skin you may use the buffer cream that comes with it to add hydration. Please note that anything added to your skin while this product is on will lessen the strength.

                            Thank you for your inquiry. For combination skin we recommend using Skin Smoothing Cream. It will help to balance oil production and hydration levels. Intensive Moisture Balance is a heavy weight moisturizer for dry skin and might be too heavy for your oily areas.

                            Thank you for your inquiry. The age of the client is irrelevant, the oil production in your skin dictates which moisturizer you should use. Intensive Moisture Balance is for dry skin and is a heavy weight moisturizer.
