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!
Reviewed by 1064 customers Amazing results for my sensitive, hormonal, eczema skin!
Britter from Champaign IL
I have been searching for something that is incredibly hydrating without being heavy and pore clogging, and this is it. The first time I applied it it felt like a long awaited drink for my thirsty skin, and the smell is fantastic- sort of herby and refreshing. My eczema is improving and it's so light that I am not getting acne from it even though it's really moisturizing. New must have, after just a week of use (with the new hydrating exfoliating mask twice this week) my skin is calm, hydrated and smooth. I don't think my pores have ever been so small! I'm a convert!
I absolutely love this light weight, hydrating moisturizer
Mackenzie Craig from Murfreesboro
Apply this as your last step in your morning regimen!
Ressa from Las Vegas, NV
I'm 28 and have acne prone skin, it's been an up hill battle with it with these mask! yes maskne is REAL! I thought the best thing to do is not to put any lotions on my face but I was looking terrible and super dry, and extremely oily by the time I got home from work. After hours of dermalogica product research I've found my holy grail! This has prebiotics in it that doesn't clog my pores! It leaves zero residue, or a filmy feeling after applying. I feel like I'm hydrating my skin without the oil feeling. I never use to moisturize at night due to fear of new breakouts but this has me feeling secure in my results to apply morning and night.
I've been using the daily moisturizer for years!
Kdubby from Germantown, MD
I love how light this is. I'm pretty oily and it doesn't add to that while giving me moisture.
Reformulated - and not in a good way
Kirsten from California
I used this product for almost a decade and they just decided to reformulate. Such a shame, it was awesome, but now they added a boatload of this super powerful lavender essential oil smell. It caused my skin to turn bright red, and stripped the moisture barrier on my cheeks. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. So disappointed in Dermalogica. They used to specialize in professional products for dermatologists, this is now a highly scented mess.
Used to be my go-to for acne-prone skin
Laura from Colorado
They changed the formula, which I didn't realize until I was putting it on my face and could smell citrus (which it never smelled like before). Low and behold I look up the ingredients and a lot have changed. Another reviewer mentioned the addition of Coconut Alkanes which will give you acne. This new formula caused a handful of break outs before I realized what was causing them. As soon as I stopped using this the breakouts went away. Do not recommend this new formula at all :(
Dee from VA
I have used many moisturizers this one I always come back to. It is the best for me & my skin.
THE Best Moisturizer
KMolly from Nasvhille, TN
I've used Active Moist for years and it never disappoints. I still have T zone oily skin and it is perfect for balancing out my whole face. AM doesn't clog pores. It's not heavy feeling. It works great under my makeup. I now have my boys using too. Great product and worth the money.
Change in Formulation for the Worse
Kat from Atlanta, GA
This use to be my favourite moisturiser until they recently changed the formulation. Of the 40+ ingredients, only 20 are the same as before so marketing it as the same product is, in my opinion, misleading. The most notable change is the use of Coconut Alkanes (7th on the list of ingredients) which is highly comedogenic - beware people with acne-prone skin! I posted a similar review on the official Dermalogica website and it has been removed.
Best of the best
Mel from Orlando, Florida
A holy grail product!!! This super lightweight feeling moisturizer is Yes a little pricey but in this case you really get what you pay for. I've been using this for 3 years (and along with their special cleansing gel) this moisturizer has transformed my oily/acne prone skin. Dermalogica is such clean skin care. Just try it!
Skin is so soft!
Ang from Freehold,NJ
Definitely helped with my dry skin!
Cassie from Sallisaw, OK
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?
