FREE Age Smart Moisturizer Set w/any $50 Dermalogica purchase
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.

              Comments about Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance:

              In the winter my skin goes through a period of dryness that is only solved by using this moisturizer. I started with the "Dry Skin Kit" and discovered the perfect regimen to save my skin. since then, I have used those products in the full sizes and I can always rely on them for hydrated skin in the winter or any time.

                This is a great way to treat your skin. It is light, applies easily and you can see/feel instant rejuvenation of your skin. It's a bit costly, but worth the price.

                    A:

                    Thank you for your inquiry. For combination skin we recommend using Skin Smoothing Cream. It will help to balance oil production and hydration levels. Intensive Moisture Balance is a heavy weight moisturizer for dry skin and might be too heavy for your oily areas.

                    A:

                    Thank you for your inquiry. The age of the client is irrelevant, the oil production in your skin dictates which moisturizer you should use. Intensive Moisture Balance is for dry skin and is a heavy weight moisturizer.

                    A:

                    Thank you for your inquiry. You can use Intensive Moisture Balance while on Accutane. The vitamin A is not at an exfoliating strength, it is used for it's antioxidant properties in this formulation. Please make sure to use sun screen during the day. We have several to choose from including Oil Free Matte SPF30.

                    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.
