Great Product!

I am about a month into my skincare regimen with Dermalogica Products and active moist is now my go to moisturizer. I have used other brands in the past that have left my face feeling oily and even sticky at times - not active moist! It is very lightweight yet leaves your face moisturized throughout the day. The only reason I give this a 4 star rating opposed to a 5 star rating is because there is no SPF protection.

Best light weight moisturizer I have ever used

I have oily skin and have always had a really hard time finding a daily moisturizer that didn't add to the oil. I have finally found that with this product. Not only is it truly lightweight, it keeps my face hydrated all day. I use this product daily in the morning and it has done absolute wonders for my skin. Highly recommend!
