Strong clinical smell and no difference to my skin

By 

from UK

Comments about active moist:

I have used this for several months and there has been no noticeable difference in my skin. It was worth a try but unfortunately it didn't help me. The smell is also very clinical and overpowering.

Love!

By

Comments about active moist:

I used to use a drug store brand moisturizer and was switched to dermalogia products after a facial. I tried going back to other brands and can definitely tell a difference that this product makes. It's pricey but worth what you pay!

Would not buy again

By 

from Phoenix, Az

Comments about active moist:

This is the first time I've ever ever used the dermalogica brand. I bought this moisturizer to help with my combination skin. It did not do what it claims and did not moisturize very well at all. I almost feel like it made my skin drier. I would not recommend nor repurchase this.

Amazing

By 

from Wales, UNITED KINGDOM

Comments about active moist:

This product is amazing. I've always suffered with oily skin and prone to acne. I put this on every night and every morning and my skin doesn't feel greasy throughout the day either. It's expensive yes but totally worth it!

Great combination skin moisturiser

By 

from Durham

Comments about active moist:

I have sensitive combination skin (occasionally VERY dry cheeks, oily t zone and hormonal acne due to PCOS) and this is great. It gives just the right amount of hydration to my skin and makes my face feel smooth and silky - no greasiness or causing more breakouts. I thought the price was steep but I really couldn't find anything else that could give the same results, so it's worth it. Also, big bonus that Dermalogica is vegan and cruelty free!

An ok product

By 

from CO

Comments about active moist:

When first using it I had high expectations because I have heard some really good things about it. It was fine, yet it didn't "stand out" compared to any other, cheaper moisturizer. I decided to give it a chance. Later on, my skin was extremely dry, so I go put on some more moisturizer. It made my skin sting and red instead of helping it.

      Hello. Only a doctor can treat and diagnose Rosacea. That being said, our Ultra Calming products may help with the symptoms associated with Rosacea. Like redness, irritation, etc.
