Clogged my pores

        Comments about Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance:

        I used the product twice daily and it seemed to feel good and moisturize my face at first, however, I started having clogged pores pretty bad. I stopped using it and cleared my pores and haven't had a problem wiith the moisturizer that I am using now. I also didn't like that it doesn't have a sunblock in it. I had to purchase a seperate sunblock for my face - which was very expensive and I didn't like it either.

                      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

                        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.

                              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.

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.

                              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.
