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.

Pros

  • Goes On Smoothly

Cons

  • Too Greasy Or Heavy

Best Uses

Comments about Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance:

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.

Comments about Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance:

I've used and wasted money on so many products that don't work throughout the day, this product is pricier but definitely worth it.

                  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.

                  Thank you for your inquiry. The 3.4oz tube should last you about 4-6 months depending if you use it once or twice a day. A pea size amount is the recommended application amount.

              • 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?

                  A:

                  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.

                I was thinking about getting this cream. I don't think it will help my combination skin with some uneven tones, due to past sunbathing. �� Anti aging additives would be great to. Must be a day time, lightweight cream or lotion. Any suggestions?

                  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.
