      Unsure about this

      By Phoebe22

      from New britain ct

      Comments about Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance:

      This feel wonderful on skin... Absorbs nicely and doesn't feel greasy. However when I wear this my skin gets very dry!!!! I don't understand it! I can feel it tightening! And I have combination oily skin so this boggles my mind. I know it's the moisturizer because when I wear my laneige moisturizer my skin is fine... Only when I wear this which is bizarre.... I use it because I bought it and it was expensive but I will not repurchase.

        This is one of my favorite products ! It's very tricky to find something that provides deep moisture that penetrates and doesn't just stay on the surface. I have menopausal, combination sensitive skin so it's difficult to find a product that does it all !

        Skin still felt dry

        By Madi

        from Wisconsin

        Comments about Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance:

        I have combination, acne prone skin. I typically break out if I don't use an acne cleanser, but I also break out if my skin gets too dry. I bought this moisturizer hoping it would provide the hydration needed after my acne cleanser, but after applying both at night and in the morning for a week and a half, my skin felt dry and itchy several hours later. Some people complain about the smell, but I didn't mind or find it that off putting. I was mainly just disappointed that for the price it wasn't that hydrating--I've actually had better results with Cetaphil moisturizer. Maybe this will work better on people with less sensitive skin, but it didn't work for me.

                    I apply this while my skin is still damp with toner. It keeps my skin supple without making it oily which I love because I have combination skin. No dry patches either! I will be purchasing more of this.

                          Thank you for your inquiry. Intensive Moisture Balance is a heavy weight moisturizer for chronically dry skin. Active Moist is an oil free moisturizer for oily skin. If your skin always feel tight and dry you will be better off using Intensive Moisture Balance.

                          Hello Maggie, Intensive Moisture Balance is a heavy weight Moisturizer for dry and sensitive skin. This product should be applied to clean damp skin. If you are going to wear make up you would apply Skin Perfect Primer SPF30 or directly over Intensive Moisture Balance. Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

                          Hello Joanne,

                          Skin Smoothing Cream Is a medium weight moisturizer, while Intensive Moisture Balance is a heavier weight moisturizer. To address excess dryness and wrinkles, we suggest you use Intensive Moisture Balance.

                          Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, Intensive Moisture Balance can be applied on top of your serum. Also, you should use sun protection in the daytime, we suggest Solar Defense Booster SPF50. It can be mixed right into your Intensive Moisture Balance or your foundation. Please contact us with any further questions.

                          All Dermalogica products including this one are free of artificial fragrances, artificial colors, drying S.D. alcohol, and ingredients like Mineral Oil - all of which are known to exacerbate common skin concerns.
