This product really surprised me.... out of the tube, it feels really light and watery, like it wouldn't do anything for you, but once you put it on your face, it immediately sinks in... you really do get that plumping feeling that other products say they do, but don't. I have extremely dry skin from using retin-a for the last couple years, and I normally moisturize with three products; a water gel, a regular moisturizer, and an oil to seal the moisture in.... I've been through so many high end moisturizers, and at the end of my day, I always feel a little dry. This product moisturizes like a dream.... I don't have to fallow up with anything else. It's very lightweight, does not leave the skin greasy, and does not sting my face like other hylouronic acid gels usually do to me. I will say that this item is pretty pricey, however, you really don't need a lot. My previous holy grail water gel cream was the Peter Thomas Roth cream cloud, however I had to use a lot more of that each time to apply. This is not like that. A pea sized amount will moisturize your whole face. I'm very impressed with this and until now didn't know a moisturizer like this existed. I think this product would be great for all skin types. It's lightweight for oily skin, but hydrates very well for dry skin. There is also not really a scent to this, so sensitive skin would like this as well. Definitely my new holy grail. Works excellent under makeup since it is water based. Really am enjoying this a lot more than I thought I would just based on the texture of the gel. I'm 34 years old, and do have dry sensitive acne prone skin, and this has not broke me out (I usually get breakouts immediately if it's a product that doesn't work for my skin)
Obviously everyone's skin is different, but I really think this is a great product, at least get a sample or try it in store. Really starting to love dermalogica products. I have their hydro blur primer, and multi active toner, both I absolutely love also.
I received this product for free to try and review, and I was very excited! Water Gels are quite the rage and living in the Northeast where the wind hurts your face in the winter I was very excited to have a layer of defense. However, as hard as I want to like this product I just can't, and I have been using it for about a month now. Like with any new product, I did notice slight breakouts when I switched. However even after the normal 2 week period I am still noticing clogged pores and blemishes. The gel is also very clinical smelling, it's very potent. It reminds me of walking into an OB/GYN office for some reason, and the smell doesn't dissipate right away, neither does the greasy or wet appearance after putting it on your skin. I normally have to put it on my face and then do something else for about 15 minutes for the product to fully absorb into my skin before putting makeup on, or I notice my makeup running down my face in a few hours even with a primer on. Most importantly, this gel has increased the redness and blotch I was to my uneven skin tone. After a consistent 4 weeks of use I went back to my normal moisturizer because I couldn't continue to see a decline in my skins appearance After I had worked 6 years to clear acne and brighten and even my skin tone.

Discovered this over a year ago and it has since become my holy grail moisturizer. I use it day and night, no issues with my sensitive and acne prone skin. I love the dewy feeling after application that dries down very nicely.
Mickey from Ohio
Use this in the am and the sleep cocoon at night. Amazing. Doesn't take long to soak in to the skin. Love how hydrating the gel is! I don't have sensitive skin either.
Denise from Delaware
Bought this for my overly dry skin and would NOT recommend to anyone. My skin isn't even sensitive and this caused burns all over my chin.
J from Houston, TX
This product works pretty well for my mixed oil/dry skin type. I have larger pores and used to use a cream moisturizer, which left my pores looking even bigger. This product doesn't do that, and also leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft rather than greasy. I usually have dryness between my eyebrows, along my upper cheeks, and on my chin, but this product has significantly helped that. A very small pea-sized drop is all I need. Sad to see it's caused breakouts or generally did not work well for some others, but everyone's skin is different. Only downside for me is the price. I was gifted this and am not sure I would spend so much for a single product when there are likely equivalent products for less.

I use this product before bed. It helps my skin stay hydrated at night.
Shas from Florida
I had a bad reaction from another face cream and the water gel was very soothing. With that and the Prisma my face cleared up in 2 days. Very calming products.

I keep this in my purse to touch up my face throughout the day

I've tried a bajillion moisturizers, and this is the best one for my acne-prone dry and sensitive skin. I have rosacea, and while this doesn't help my redness, it keeps my skin calmer and moisturized throughout the day.
Robbie from Texas
I have tried so many expensive moisturizers and this is the best. This is also my first product review ever because I had to express how much I love this moisturizer! This is so good for super dry and sensitive skin!
Mandee from Tampa, FL
Dear Dermalogica, can you please make this in a gallon size?? No seriously… This is the BEST moisturizer. I have acne prone, dry-ish, rosacea, you look at my face the wrong way it turns red kind of skin and this moisturizer is one of the only ones that doesn't make it red, keeps moisture all day long and doesn't irritate my skin. 5 stars!
Azure from Undisclosed
This does take away any of the red in my face, it might actually make the red show up more. It also made my face greasy/oily.
Martha from Undisclosed
It has a nice, light scent to it and it's not super thick. You can almost feel the moisture in the gel but it's not watery at all. It's good for oily and combination skin. A little bit goes a long way too. I love it so far and will purchase again in the future.
Liza from Undisclosed
I really like this product. I love the smell and putting it on feels very calming. It gives me the moisture burst that I need.
Katie from Undisclosed
My must have!
Guy from Undisclosed
The Perfect one. Leave my combination skin hydrated enough for the day but not oily in the places where it usually is. I use this along with the ultra-calming set and it works like magic.
Mary from Undisclosed
feels like magic
Joani from Undisclosed
I love this product. At least my skin feeling smooth, moisturized, and the feeling less all day.
Brittney from Florida
I have used this product on & off for a while now. It moisturizers my skin very well and does not irritate my already sensitive skin. This only down fall I've seen is after applying it makes my skin appear greasy and shiny.
Mercy from Undisclosed
My skin look flawless this summer, love this product.
Jennifer from Undisclosed
I like it very light. When I pay it on it seems to not soak in right away. Sometimes feels tacky.
TJ from Undisclosed
This has been the best moisturizer I've ever used. I have combination and veryyyy sensitive skin and this gel is everything. Calms my rosacea and acne and it leaves my skin feeling perfectly moisturized, neither oily or dry.
Amanda from Undisclosed
I do really like this one! I have rosacea so it helps a bit but I mostly like the cooling feeling of it. I just wish they made it in a bigger container! Please make this in a larger container!!!
Ann from Undisclosed
This gel goes on so smooth- I love how it feels.
Dorothy from Undisclosed
One of the best moisturizers I have used.
Chad from Undisclosed
So calming post shaving. I love it. Easy to apply and use- a little goes a long way. I'll sometimes use as a combo with the toner to ensure my skin gets moisture back.
