Find in Store-

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.

            On the advice of an Ulta Dermalogica staffer, I tried this to replace using separate day and night Dermalogica moisturizing products. I am so glad I did. I definitely see and feel the difference in my skin. Buying a larger tube today!

                  I have been using this moisturizer for a while now and I really liked it. However, I have just read it contains parabens. I try and stay away from these and wonder if you do another moisturizer that I could use that is about the same but without those ingredients.
