Most Helpful Positive Review Sums up just what I need!
One day I made the brave decision to actually invest my money in good skincare products. After spending days upon days of researching great skin care products that are affordable, Dermalogica came to my rescue. I was done and tired of emptying out my wallet so many times for continuous drugstore products that never work.I have severely dry skin, also which is oily at times, and is prone to breakouts as well. I first bought the beginners kit for dry skin, which worked very well for my skin. I did notice a difference in the look, texture, and clearity in my skin after a couple of weeks. What I mostly needed out of this kit was the moisturizer, as said before I have very dry skin so it is completely vital I use it morning and night. I've tried many moisturizers before this product, and yes they did moisturize my face, but that's it. They weren't long-lasting at all. The Intensive Moisture Balance is such a great product. It's more than a moisturizer to me. To put into words it's like my "bodyguard" for my skin. Whenever my skin is dry or very oily, I cleanse my face and put some of this moisture on, it does wonders. My skin never feels like a desert and most importantly is not oily or greasy. I can wear it under my makeup, mix it in with my foundation (as a tinted moisturizer) and I no longer have worries. Another great thing also is that a little, tiny amount goes a long way and it will last all day and not wear off. I totally recommend this product to anyone looking for a great moisturizer. I know everyone's skin is different, but it's worth a shot. Thanks Dermalogica!
Most Helpful Critical Review Old formula was better
LOVED the older version of this lotion...very nourishing and pampering...then it seemed to get watery and less moisturizing. Still a good lotion but if I wanted a lighter lotion I would order one...now there doesn't seem to be a truly "intensive moisturizing" one on the dermalogica line...hope they will change back to their old formula!

I didn't realize how extremely small the product size was when I bought this. Even if I wanted to try it out for a week it wouldn't be enough. I can't believe I paid this much for something so small. Was it hydrating? Kind of. Nothing amazing. I could've bought a regular sized product for this price from a drugstore brand that I know works for my skin. Never again.
Worth every penny!
Chels from Greenville Michigan
I started getting facials in multiple salons in my area to find the best products for my acne prone skin without fully investing in every product line. I finally found the best! I love this because using so many acid products dries out my face so bad and this works wonders for that!
Makes my face oily
Tabby from Morganton
I am not happy with this product because it makes my face very oily. For someone who may not have naturally oily skin this could be a great product for you but not if you are prone to oily skin.
Wonderful product. I've used it for over a year
Jan from AZ
Moisturizer is excellent. Gives perfect coverage without too much thickness. Perfect with the other products I use such as serums that I buy from you. My skin looks great at 67.

Extra moisture for my dry skin
Can't wait to buy full size
RZ from MA
This is exactly what I needed for my dry sensitive acne prone skin. This is one of the only products by this company I could find that doesn't have all the essential oils in it... and I'm glad because it does exactly what I needed it to do. It's a shame it's so expensive but I guess they can do that because I've never felt another moisturizer quite as refined and yet as powerful.
I love Intensive Moisture Balance.
Terrye from NY
I have used this moisturizer for years as my daily moisturizer. Dermalogica is expensive but I think it is worth it and you need to be careful not to use too much at one time. Follow the directions.

I haven't found a moisturizer that actually leaves my face moisturized the whole day and this is it !
Amazing for women over 40 or for any age with dry skin!

This product changed my mothers and older clients skin. It will take ten years off of you. Lipid balance is so important. This is more than just hydration! It keeps your skin so healthy and quenched that it lifts and perks!
My favorite Dermalogica product

This moisturizer is the best. I always get dry skin in the winter and this was my savior!
Effective for My Blemished Skin
Steph from Orange County, CA
I have found this moisturizer to work well to keep my skin moisturized yet not greasy. I am prone to breakouts and I have OCD which manifests in picking at my skin. This moisturizer helps heal the damage that those two factors cause and it keeps my skin feeling comfortable (not itchy or tight).
Very effective but needs a better scent (or a scent)
Tripp20 from West Chester, PA
You need very little product and your face feels very hydrated and great after use. Drawback is it is very "unscented" in that it smells almost plastic or something. Could definitely use a better smell.
Jackie from Petaluma,ca
Definitely does the job and makes my skin feel and look hydrated than the other products I've used in the past.
Eka from New York
I started using this a couple of years ago and now I'm addicted. My skin feels so healthy. Great solution to anyone who has dry skin. It really does what it says. And large tube lasts forever. Overall great product. Well done!
