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.

                  After finding out my longtime Clinique products were testing on animals I searched for a new brand to use. After trying several that I unfortunately was sensitive to, I finally found Dermalogica and I am so pleased.

                        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.
