Actually Moisturizes

By 

from Pullman, WA

Comments about intensive moisture balance:

The intensive moisture balance actually moisturizes your skin compared to other products that just sit on the surface. A little goes a long way as well. I frequently get dry skin (no matter the weather) and this face lotion really helps. Highly recommend to those not wanting to waste their money on another drugstore product and want results.

The only moisturizer I buy now

By 

from Maine

Comments about intensive moisture balance:

This moisturizer has been wonderful. I used Mary Kay (MK) for decades. I finally made the switch two years ago, and I'll never go back. I made the switch because the MK moisturizer I used to use was discontinued, and the alternatives were either not moisturizing enough or seemed to make my skin oily. I switched to Dermalogica primarily for the Intensive Moisture Balance. It's perfect! My skin feels moisturized, not too tight, dry or oily. I thought I would need the lighter version during the summer months, but it seems this moisturizer is perfectly balanced for my skin year round. I always keep a backup on hand and as well as an extra in my travel bag, so I'll never be without it! The true test: my husband used it one day, and now he insists on using it all the time as well!

I have been using this moisturizer for years!

By

Comments about intensive moisture balance:

I love this product, because I have sensitive skin and you only need a small amount to keep your skin glistening throughout the day. It is great for day and night use, and I use it all year round.

Best moisturiser!

By 

from Beirut

Comments about intensive moisture balance:

My skin has always been super sensitive and super dry - though with breakouts. I find this moisturiser to be the best for my skin; it absorbs quickly, no sensitivity, and thoroughly moistures my skin! Wish it came with sunblock.

  • Q:

    I have acne-prone skin that is also dehydrated and dry. Can this product be used in combination with the Medibac clearing cleanser to help with dryness?
    Asked on 11/29/2016 by chacha

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Dear Chacha,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Clearing Skin Wash is for a full face of acne. If you do no have a full face of acne, it might be drying you out. Please try Special Cleansing Gel and Active Moist for best results.

      Kind Regards,
      The Dermalogica Team

      Answered on 12/1/2016 by Bernadette from Los Angeles
  • Q:

    Please help! I need advice. During winter months, I have extreme combination skin. Super oily in my t-zone and ridiculously dry on my cheeks. I usually use Dermal Clay Cleanser in the morning, Precleanse and Clearing Skin Wash at night, along with Multi-Active Toner and Skin Smoothing Cream. I also use Overnight Clearing Gel when having break-outs. Well, the Skin Smoothing Cream does not seem to be helping the flaky dry skin on my cheeks. They're so dry they're rough to the touch. Is Intensive Moisture Balance okay for such high contrast combination skin? Would that be much more moisturizing than Skin Smoothing Cream? Should I maybe add Phyto Replenish Oil as well, since it locks in moisture? I'm so confused. Dermalogica products are the only ones that usually work for me, I just don't know what products would give me much needed moisture without adding oiliness! Please help! Thanks!

      Dear Ebie,

      Please try mixing Skin Hydrating Booster into your Skin Smoothing Cream. Additionally, try Special Cleansing Gel and Daily Resurfacer instead of Clearing Skin Wash.

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Dear Ch'ng,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Intensive Moisture balance is excellent for oil-dry skin that needs extra moisture and may be concerned with aging. You can mix it with Extra Firming Booster to help strengthen your skin's elasticity.

  • Q:

    What age range is Intensive moisture balance for? Can it be used between the ages of 18-25?
    Asked on 2/25/2016 by anastasia from winchester

    1 answer

    • A:

      Hello,

      Thank you for your question. Intensive Moisture Balance is for anyone who is oil-dry, meaning they have dull, tight skin that lacks oil. This can happen at any age.
