Cannot live without

By Maria

from Garland

Comments about Dermalogica Active Moist:

I love this moisturizer. I have combo skin and this works so well. It doesn't break me out and I can always count on it. This is one of the two Dermalogica products that I cannot live without. I don't mind spending a little extra money on it. The small bottle lasts me up to 3 months and I upgraded to the bigger bottle. I like the packaging as well and I like the scent and the texture.

Amazing!!!!

By Active Moist

from New York

Comments about Dermalogica Active Moist:

This moisturizer has changed my life!! I was on a hunt for years trying to find a moisturizer that would not irritate my very oily and acne prone skin, AND didn't contain harmful ingredients. This is not an easy combination to achieve but Dermalogica hit a home run with Active Moist. It's a very lightweight moisturizer, does not clog pores, and wears beautifully under make up. An absolute must-have in your skincare army.

This is a great product that balances my skin's moisture well throughout the day while not leaving a greasy feeling. While it does work great, it seems a bit expensive for just a basic moisturizer.

      This is my favorite. It's great for sensitive skin and is unscented. The only reason it doesn't get five stars is that it is expensive, although you don't have to use much.

                  A:

                  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.

                  It sounds like your cleanser is too drying for your skin. After cleansing we recommend using MultiActive Toner followed by Active Moist

              • Q:

                Can I use this moisturizer near my eye area? Also, I break out every other day with one or two pimples and I am only oily on my nose. The rest of my face is either normal or sometimes dry. I also have a lot of acne scarring. Would you recommend this one or the skin smoothing cream?

                  Hello Sunflwr:

                  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.

              • Q:

                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?

                  Hello Wyatt:

                  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.
