      Comments about Dermalogica Active Moist:

      I was quite surprised that this product had such great reviews. Being in the skin care industry I would consider myself a product junkie and this has to be one of the worst moisturizers I have ever tried. Instead of making my skin feel fresh and hydrated, this product made me feel greasy and sticky! It just felt gross! To top it off, it has a smell that is not so great. Not that it is unbearable, but it just isn't pleasant. I took this product off my skin half an hour into wearing it the two times I tried it. If you are going to spend 42-62$ on a moisturizer there are plenty of ones that are literally 1000x better than this. I would rather use a moisturizer from Olay then this product.

        Comments about Dermalogica Active Moist:

        I've been using this product for about a week and so far I LOVE it! I have VERY DRY, sensitive, acne prone skin and this stuff is surprisingly hydrating without aggravating my skin or causing breakouts. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it's way expensive for such a tiny amount, although so far it seems to be worth it.

                I have very dry skin and acne problems. Dermalogica has worked so well for my dry skin and doesn't make me breakout like a lot of the other moisturizers I've used. I don't think I'll buy anything else but dermalogica products. It's a bit expensive but to be acne free, I'll do anything! Plus it lasts a long time so it's 100% worth it!

                  I use this product daily with my other dermalogica products, and I love how silky and light it feels when you rub it on your face. When it dries, your face has this light glow and it feels a little moist and fresh :) I use a bit more on my chin since it dries there easily (especially in the winter), but overall my skin stays hydrated throughout the day (and I only use it once in the morning).

                      Thank you for your inquiry. We recommend that you use Special Cleansing Gel as your cleanser to avoid feeling tight after cleansing. MultiActive Toner will help you moisturizer absorb and moisturizer your skin better. For moisturizer we recommend Skin Smoothing Cream to help hydrate skin without being too heavy.

                    I have dry checks and sometimes my face gets tight, but my chin is my problem area and gets very oily and I have hormonal break outs. Should I go with this moisturizer or the skin smoothing cream? I cannot decide on which one. And can you tell me the difference between the two moisturizers (active moist and skin smoothing cream)?

                      Thank you for your inquiry. Skin Smoothing Cream is the best choice for your skin and will help to balance your hydration/oil levels. You can use Daily Microfoliant all over face and Breakout Control to address breakouts on chin. Active Moist is oil free and will not be enough hydration for your cheek area.

                    I have been a fan of Dermalogica for years and am going to switch back from trying Philosophy. I currently am an acne prone/combination skin type who is dry/irritated from Salicylic acid and other acne products. I use the Clear Start All Over Toner but am in need of a daytime moisturizer. I know its important but I avoid ones with SPF as i feel i break out from it. Would the Active Moist be best for me? I was also considering the skin smoothing cream. Thank You!

For best results cleanse, apply MultiActive Toner and then Active Moist. You will also benefit from using Charcoal rescue Masque 2 times a week to soak up excess oil and keep follicles clear.

                      Hello Connie,

                      Thank you for your inquiry. Active Moist is an oil free moisturizer that is good for oily and acne prone skin. If you are looking a product that has sunscreen in it we recommend using Oil Free Matte SPF30 in the daytime and Active Moist at night. Oil Free Matte SPF30 will absorb excess oil and lightly hydrate your skin in one step. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

                      A:

                      Active Moist comes in two retail sizes: 1.7 oz., which should last 2-3 months, and 3.4 oz., which should last 4-6 months. It depends on how much you are applying and how often. With normal usage, these time frames are correct. The shelf life of this product is 3 years unopened and 2 years after it has been opened. We hope this info helps!
