My favorite moisturizer

By M

Comments about Dermalogica Active Moist:

This is the best facial moisturizer I've ever used. Hydrates amazingly well but never makes my skin look greasy or oily. It also has a nice clean smell that isn't too strong. Worth the price!

    I don't use this product anymore but when I did, this moisturizer is awesome! It would last all day and it's so lightweight! You barely need any to use on your whole face and you're good for the day! I'll go back to it some day but it's so worth it!

      i don't know how i lived without this. Such a smart buy to help your entire makeup look come together and stay in place. This is perfect for people with oily skin (like me). this makes my makeup look a lot smoother and helps it stay on a lot longer. and it's soft and improving the appearance of my skin. will be purchasing again

                        Active Moist is a light weight moisturizer for normal skin and is not specifically anti-aging. You can layer MultiVitamin Power Serum under it to help with the signs of aging.

                        Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You may use Active Moist near your eye area. Active Moist is oil free and for skin of excess oil production for oily and combination skin. Skin Smoothing Cream is for skin normal to dry skin. For acne scarring we recommend that you use c-12 Pure Bright Serum in the day time and Overnight Retinol Repair at night time. We also recommend that you use Daily Microfoliant daily. All of these will help to even out skin tone, brighten your skin. You may use Special Clearing Booster to spot treat breakouts.

                      I was told by an Ulta specialist that I have combination skin, very oily T-zone and not so dry cheeks. I was given the dermal clay cleanser, daily superfoliant, and active moist moisturizer. I haven't seen any results as far as oil reduced from my face, could I possibly be over moisturizing? Where should I apply the moisturizer?

                        Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Here are a few options for you to consider....

                        Option 1. Oil Free Matte SPF 30 may be used during the day time, it is a moisturizer, spf and oil absorber in one.
                        You may use the Active Moist at night
                        Option 2. Clearing Mattifier may be used in the oily areas. It provides shine control and also prevents breakouts and clears congested follicles.This would be used under the Active Moist

                      I'm looking for a light weight, oil free moisturizer but noticed you use dimethicone which can clog pores as well, causing oily skin to become more oily and dry skin to become dryer. Do you have any products that do not contain dimethicone?

                    • Q:

                      Would active moist work on my super sensitive, combination, rosacea prone skin? I am using Dermalogica ultra calming cleanser and barrier repair and they are wonderful. Other products from ultra calming line do not work for me and are irritating.. need a product that would be more moisturizing than barrier repair, but not too heavy. Need something soothing, with some anti aging benefits preferably.

                        Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. We recommend you trying the Skin Smoothing Cream. It is a medium weight moisturizer that, smooths fine lines and promotes elasticity, shields against dehydration and pollution. It also has antioxidants to help fight skin-aging free radicals.
