FREE Detox Duo Set w/any $50 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.

Comments about Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance:

I am in my 30's and have always had dry skin. This past winter (I live in New England) was brutal on my skin. I could not find something to moisturize my skin enough and when I tried to put on makeup it made my skin look worse. I was watching LoveShelbey on YouTube and she talked about this product. I have tried Dermalogica's dry skin line and didn't feel it helped. When Shelbey started talking about this product I was skeptical but she talked about it a few times. I ended up getting a sample of it and was so impressed I went to ulta the next day and bought the small size. I am so obsessed with it and my makeup looks great again. It does not irritate my skin, I do not look dry and I use it morning and night. I even bought a back up tube so I will never be without it.

    Have used for over 15 years and loved it but the cost has sky rocketed. Unfortunately this will be the last tube I purchase as the cost if getting beyond what I can afford. Sad because I loved and used this product and others in the line for many, many years.

        Great moisturizer, really like it. Easy to use, absorbs well and hydrates all day. I have dry skin and this moisturizer works well. There is no SPF in it so I will add sunscreen after I apply this.
        Dermologica brand is expensive, but a little goes a long way.

          I have been using Dermalogica products for over 6 years. Prior I was using Biothethics only sold @ Salons for over 35 years. I stopped using Biothethics, because it was very costly and decided to try out Dermalogic. I am very pleased with the Dermalogica products. The moisturizer is excellent and the price is right. I am over 60 years old and I have been told by many including my dermatologist that I have beautiful skin. This says it all.

                      Thank you for your inquiry. We suggest using Super Rich Repair at night for your chronically dry skin. You may also layer Overnight Repair Serum under your moisturizer to really address dryness and dehydration.

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?

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.
