I love this product. I was told that I had dry skin when I get my facials and this was recommended. It works wonders. The tiniest bit goes such a long way and it truly makes my skin feel so smooth (after using the everyday exfoliant and the special cleansing gel).

Very moisturizing


I really enjoyed using this product. It's very moisturizing and has made my skin very supple and smooth. The smell is very clean and not harsh on my skin at all. It's a cream that can be used during the day as well as at night.

Chesapeake, Virginia




Love this product even more with the hyaluronic add in!!



My favourite moisturiser by far!


I have used the original skin smoothing cream for a while but tried some other brands and then came back to this. The new skin smoothing cream glides on and sinks in to my skin perfectly. It does not leave a tacky residue on skin and goes well under make up. A little goes a long way too. Skin feels comfortable and refreshed. No wonder this is a beat seller!

Five stars for performance, three for price = four overall


I've been a loyal dermalogica customer for 18 years and used this for nearly a decade, it's a great moisturiser for my acne prone skin. However, while I appreciate developments warrant price increases, the price point of nearly £60 for 100ml is almost prohibitive now and I am sadly seeking alternatives as a result.





I love that this product is VEGAN!

Costa Mesa, CA


I love Dermalogica!


I was so excited to use this and I'm glad I did. Such a smooth facial cream that was a pleasure to use. The scent is mild. The feel is not greasy at all, just super hydrating. Love love love! I notice a difference every morning after I use this at night. My skin looks and feels healthier and brighter.



Skin so smooth, necessity


I love this skin smoothing cream. I'm 31 and in fear of wrinkles so anything I can do to delay the process is priority. I worked this into my daily routine and what a difference! I like this better than anything I've tried and I've tried a lot of creams! Leaves my skin baby soft and makes my makeup glide on like a dream!

Brandon, FL


Great face cream!


Been using this cream every day for a while and my skin feels softer and less dry. Not thick and sticky and doesnt leave my skin feeling oily like other creams.

Not for me


Not sure if it was the product, or just my skin, but after to days of use this made my skin have a red rash like over it. I can be pretty sensitve, so Im sure its just me. It did have a real good smell and made my face feel smooth, so Im bummed it didnt work for me.

Hello, I was recommended this product during face mapping however I had dry skin with breakouts within my forehead and cheeks. Is this product suitable for me or should I buy an acne targeted moisturiser?

Hi, I love using facial oils and I was wondering if I could use them with Skin Smoothing Cream. If so, should I use it before or after?

Hi there, I have oily skin which can be dehydrated, during the day I use active moist but at night I switch between active moist and skin smoothing cream. But when travelling I can go from the tropic weather to snowing and windy. But my skin struggles with hydration can I layer moisturisers for example the smoothing cream and then a layer of sleep cocoon at night? I also use tretinion every night as well. Thank you

Hello! I have recently discovered that i have a dehydrated skin that overproduces oil as a result, which i am trying to fix now. Would this be the most suitable moisturiser? What other products would complement it?

I purchased this intense hydration cream and have been using it the past two weeks but my skin continues to get dryer and dryer, I now have flakey white skin around my chin area. If this isn't for dry skin what would be?

Hi. I'm going on the isotretinoin medication and was wondering if this product will provide me enough moisture, when my skin will be extremely dry and dehydrated? If not, are there any other products you would recommend?

I can't see from the product description whether Skin Smoothing Cream has an SPF, please can you confirm ?

I have dehydrated skin however it doesn't appear dehydrated from the outset. It almost looks oily/shiny, particularly in my T-zone. However when I have had it examined by a Dermalogica consultant under the light, they have told me it is dehydrated. I also suffer with dehydration lines on my forehead and around my eyes. Which day time moisturiser do you suggest?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You may benefit from layering hydration. try Multi Active Toner, Skin Smoothing Cream and Solar Defense Booster SPF 50. Kind Regards, Bernadette
