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.

    It's very heavy on the skin and if you use it in the morning it's cakey by the afternoon. It does even skin tone and brighten a little, but I have to take most of it off before I put my foundation on.

                    I have used this moisturizer for several decades and will never stray. It has kept my skin soft, moist and youthful looking. I used to apply it 2X daily but since the Age Smart line came out, I now use Intensive Moisture Balance daytime and Super Rich Repair nights. Not much is needed for each application of either one; so they are decent value for the price. I often fool people re my real age and for that I owe much to Dermalogica!

                        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.

                      I am using another brand of retinol cream and want to start using yours because it is easier to find. The brand I am currently using makes my skin flakey and I was wondering what moisturizer would I choose to go with your retinol.

                        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.
