    Amazing results!

    By 

    from Summit, NJ

    I have been using DHC products- mostly moisturizers- for a long time and wasn't impressed with the results. Either the creams were too heavy, oily or just not a good fit for my combination skin. A friend recommended Dermalogica, so I bought a small tube of Active Moist to try. I was amazed in just one day! My skin felt smoother, looked healthier, and the lotion was light and felt great on my skin. I also loved the fact that their product line is based on natural ingredients. My skin loves it too!

    I am normally a skeptic when it comes to most beauty products, especially product reviews, so for me to recommend this lotion is out of the ordinary for me!

    Expensive mistake

    By 

    from London

    Was recommended the Dermaological trio of Pre Cleanse, Special Cleansing Gel and Active Moist after a facial. While the washes are kind to my skin the Active Moist has ruined the look and feel of my skin. In short it has become dry and is now prone to scabby patches. Two conditions I have never had. The dry patches near my cheeks have become extremely sore.

    This is a product I invested in and is now useless as I do not wish to damage my skin any further.

      Amazing Moisturizer

      By 

      from New York

      I have very irritable skin and this moisturizer does not irritate my skin and provides enough moisture to be worn in the day time or night time before bed. It is lightweight and doesn't feel greasy on the skin.
