Not greasy and super moisturizing

By 

from Forest Lake, MN

Verified Buyer

Comments about intensive moisture balance:

I typically use active moist in the summer and skin smoothing cream for winter, but lately my skin has been needing more moisture so I got this and I don't regret it. I use this day and night and it's not greasy or heavy. Will be buying more when I'm out!

Must have moisturizer for dry skin

By 

from Fort Wayne IN

Comments about intensive moisture balance:

I have very dry skin and this is a must have for me. It works wonders making my face feel rejuvenated. It also doesn't ball up like some moisturizers when you put make up on.

The only moisturizer I use now!

By 

from Tempe, AZ

Verified Buyer

Comments about intensive moisture balance:

I've tried endless combinations and brands of moisturizers, searching in vain for one that would not leave my skin feeling dry and tight. So far this is the only product to date that's worked! It goes on smoothly and feels light on my face, not heavy like other intense lotions. It soaks into my skin quickly and my makeup goes on smoothly over it. I have naturally oily skin and this doesn't make me any oilier than my usual. I would recommend this to anyone who has problems with tight, itchy, dry skins, especially in the winter!

Awesome Stuff

By 

from Tulsa, OK

Comments about intensive moisture balance:

Before using intensive moisture balance, I had extremely dry & dehydrated skin, especially around my chin & lip/mouth area. After using this product, My face does not at all look dry or dehydrated like it always did.

Now, my skin is soft and looks extremely healthy & clear. I noticed a difference within a week or less using this product. The best thing about this moisturizer (like most Derm products) Is that a little goes a very long way so it lasts awhile!

This is not only great for dry skin, but for continued use as a daily moisturizer. My skin was so incredibly dry before I started using This! It's lightweight and not greasy at all. Very clean feeling.

  • 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?

    • 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.

      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.

      Hello,
