Most Helpful Positive Review A must have for every skin from teenager to senior
To say that Dermalogica has stood up to it's name with this product is an understatement. The product truly seems to get the logic of skin- any skin.
I was introduced to Active Moist almost 4 years ago by my aesthetician. She set me on a regimen of using this moisturizer morning and night after cleansing my face. I gradually went from acne-plagued skin and constantly checking my cover-up make-up supply to a carefree, almost no make-up unbelievably clear skin type of person. It sounds like one of those ads on TV- it's NOT- the product is definitely NOT one of those overnight or 14 or 30 day "miracle" products. Instead it's a healthy way to actually change your skin from the inside. So if you're one of those instant people... move on. But if you have the patience to stick it out and really invest in your skin then buy it, try it and join the multitude of active moist loyalists! I promise I won't say I told you so :)
Most Helpful Critical Review Not good for my acne prone skin
I have been having a lot of acne trouble with my 40 year old skin lately, I have tried almost every product. My last before purchasing this was Clinque, which did not work either. I bought the acne clearing kit and mostly used the Active moist and the wash...it seemed to be doing something so, I convinced myself (for a month) that it was just my skin purging and that it would get better. Well, it got worse. A lot worse. I am very prone to picking so anything on my face becomes a complete disaster. This is why I will spend any amount of $$ on a product to get clear skin. 5 weeks later on Active moist and the skin wash, and my skin is STILL breaking out in little clear pustules all over my cheeks and forehead. Finally, I decided it was the Dermologica and the moment I stopped using it, my skin started healing. I now went back to my old faithful Origins and have clear, vibrant skin. Not even sure why I left!

I got this as a sample and noticed so many changes in my skin in such a short time! Redness is down and acne is less! This stuff is magic
A must have!!!
snowpatrol from Fort Collins, Colorado
I have been using this for years. There is no moisturizer better for oily/combination skin. It will never cause breakouts like other moisturizers I have tried. A little goes a long way. I use about the size of a blueberry twice daily after my serums. Well worth the price.
The best lotion ever!!
snowbum from Fort Collins, CO
It is pricey but you only need a small amount twice daily. I have tried so many lotions for oily, acne prone mature skin and this is the only one that works...most others will break my skin out
The Only Moisturizer I'll Ever Use Again
SomewhatOilySkin from Knoxville, Tennessee
This moisturizer is amazing! I've been using it for about 3 years and, while I've tried over the years to find a less expensive alternative, I keep coming back to this one because others just never compare. It is ABSOLUTELY worth the price. Other moisturizers tend to make me break out and/or feel heavy or leave a gross film on my skin. I can feel this one ~actually~ moisturizing my skin, not just sitting on top making it feel greasy and gross. After using this, my skin always feels so fresh, clean, soft, and amazing. I've learned my lesson with moisturizers over the years and will not stray away from this one.
My favorite moisturizer
Kat from Peoria,AZ
This is my go to night and day time moisturizer! I love the feeling, it's great for those of us with slightly oily to combo skin. I've been using this moisturizer for years and everything I have ever tried does not compared to this. You only need a little bit and it goes a long way.
Love this product
Lyn from MA
Best product I've used, keeps my skin clear and is not harsh on sensitive skin
This product severely dried and burn my face. was not happy
Maria from Surprise AZ
Was not happy at all. Severely dried and burned my face. This product was recommended by and employee at Ulta.
One of my favorite moisturizer
Sabrina from Orlando
Besides this product being expensive, the product will last you all year. You only need a penny size of it. I use it for the day mixed with my sunscreen and at night with serum. I tried the other moisturizer that they have and it's heavy, but didn't break me out. So there are other options that are cheaper. But if you are looking for something light weight and will last a long time. I highly suggest this product!
I would definitely recommend this product to a friend
Jackie from Los Angeles
This product smells great. Love the texture not greasy very light weight feels great on your face. A little pricey for the size you get but overall it's a great product. Definitely will be buying this again.
I love it!
Donna from California
I love it! Got a sample and tried it. My face feels softer
Good Moisturizer for Everyday
Argyle traveler from Argyle, TX
I use it every morning and it's good for a light moisturizer under makeup. Non-greasy too.
E.B. from Baltimore Maryland
The only moisturizer that meets all my needs and no side effects.
Nice oil free moisturizer
Blueskygirl from Brutus,Michigan
I use this face cream at bedtime and sometime in the am. I have combination skin, rare breakouts . This cream has no oil and soaks into the skin nicely.
This product is the best
Cserme from Houston
Wait has this product price went up?
Little red bumps

Smells nice.. Skin broke out in little red bumps a few day's after use
Amazing moisturizer for acne-prone skin. Worth the $$$
Amanda from Gorham, ME
I've tried them all. I'm a 23 year old who has always struggled with acne. I recently went on oral isotrentinoin which changed my complexion dramatically. This moisturizer keeps any resulting acne at bay without overdrying my face. While on isotrentinoin and my face was extremely dry, I used the next step up: Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Creme.
I will buy this product again and again!
Dani S. from South Dakota
I use this product morning and night. Was recommended to me by my Ulta Skin Therapist. Face lotions tend to make my face itchy, even the fragrance free ones, but this one has saved my skin. This product is my absolute favorite Dermalogica product. Perfect fit to my Dermalogica skin regiment.
Not for Oliy skin
Deanna from St. Louis, MO
It goes on beautifully, soaks into the skin and moisturizes perfectly...untill around noon. By the time I've had this on for 4hrs or so I'm a grease slick, and by 6pm when I get home from my makeup is sliding off. Yuk and yes this is recommend for oily skin. But it's definitely not for my oily skin.
Skeptical at first but I really like it!
D from SC
I got this as part of changing my skincare routine. I needed a new daytime moisturizer and decided to revamp everything. I was a little hesitant on this bc I have super sensitive, rosacea-prone ski, but I'm also oily. Double whammy, right? I'm really glad I listened to the esthetician on staff bc this stuff is great. Doesn't make me too oily, doesnt irritate skin, no clogged pores. I got this for daytime use but I'm sure you can use it for your night routine. I use something a little more anti-aging at night.
In love with this but ....
Liz from Dallas, TX
This helps diminish small acne or even small acne scars! But after using it everyday for 2 weeks it left a very dry patch on my chin. I stopped using and went back to my drugstore moisturizer. I learned not to use it everyday and small amount goes a long way!
My all-time favorite moisturizer
xMissCrimsonx from Washington State
It smells so calming and luxurious. I love bringing this on my travels and need a light moisturizer.
I wanted to like this
Brittani from Texas
This stuff is not cheap for how much product you get so I had high expectations. I have combination skin and this gave me dry patches on the oily parts of my face after just one night of use! I took it back asap.
Yanly from Miami Fl
This is the first time i use this brand and I really love it. I have other brands that I use for moisturizer and hydration but i think this one in specific is much better. Feels light and does what it says. I used to like Drunk elephant but is to heavy, creamy and oily. This one is so light, not oily like the others and feels nice and my skin looks so much better now. Keeps me hydrated all day. Really love this brand. I will keep buying and using only Dermalogica now on.
I like it but..
btriedit from daly city
I like it but it smells like the glue they use for papel mache. if it was fragrance free, it would be perfect.
On the fence of buying this more
Nicki from Yuma,az
I love the product but unfortunately it's pricy for what little amount you buy
