I love it!

By 

from NY, USA

Comments about intensive moisture balance:

I have been using this moisturizer for 9 months, and I'll reorder when it is over. I have combination skin, and it moisturizes my face very well without causing any spots or acne.

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 

from Michigan

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.

A Must-Have!

By 

from New York, NY

Comments about intensive moisture balance:

My skin is very complicated. It is dry, yet it sometimes gets oily if the moisturizer is too thick and I always get a rash if the ingredients are too harsh. This is the reason why I was not very persistent in my skincare regime throughout the years. I tried Intensive Moisture Balance on recommendation from my Dermalogica facial specialist and I have to say my skin has been getting better daily (it does not feel so dry anymore) and when I put the Moisture Mask followed by the moisturizer it look like I just did a facial - my skin is visibly fresher.

Great moisturizer

By 

from Northern VA

Comments about intensive moisture balance:

I had been using Active Moist for my combination skin and liked it, but found that I had areas of dryness. I had purchased the Skin Hydrating Booster to use in addition to the Active Moist, which helped, but still wasn't enough. I decided this time around to try the Intensive Moisture Balance and it works so much better! My face is moisturized and soft, but not oily or greasy. My only complaint is the smell isn't great, but it's not terrible either. This will be my go-to moisturizer from now on.
