Very confused by your new moisturiser range. I've read a lot of feedback now and while you say on this site that the intensive moisturiser is not for dehydrated skin and the skin smoothing is, so many people have feedback that the new skin smoothing is making them breakout (which obviously Dermalogica products have been developed to alleviate) and on the basis of all the comments across many different sites, I have just bought the intensive moisturiser which now appears not to be the one I need (according to the replies on this site). Although I do not wish to buy the skin smoothing skin in fear of breaking out. Please advise further as I have acne-prone skin, which is very sensitive? Equally, find the price increase quite staggering and trust that these new formulas justify such an increase?

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica, if you are acne prone and sensitive, then Calm Water Gel or Active Moist are options. Kind Regards, Bernadette

On your website it is written in question and answers section that intensive moisture balance cream is safe to use during pregnancy. The ingredients list on the website does not show retinyl palmitate. I ordered this cream and I am pregnant but there is retinyl palmitate on the ingredients list. Therefore I am confused now if I can use this product safely during pregnancy?

Rene

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Doctors recommend avoiding retinol, retinal and retinA. Retinyl Palmitate is a different ingredient. You can always check with your doctor to be sure. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Why is the old intensive moisture balance no longer available? What's the difference between this and the old one? I've been using the old intensive moisture balance for dry skin. Will this new one work for me?

Nitika

Bernadette

Is this a facial or body moisturizer?

Is this product non-comedogenic?

Ande

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This is an oil rich moisturizer meant for oil dry skin. If you are concerned with clogged pores, try Active Moist or Skin Smoothing Cream instead. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

What is the difference between using this or adding hydro boost to a dermalogica moisturizer?

Christina

Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This moisturizer is oil rich for oil dry skin and it offers hydration to the skin. You should be ok using it by itself if your skin is dehydrated and lacks oil. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

HI, I see this is a new formulation, with different packaging. Can you summarize the differences between the prior and new version of intensive moisture balance? I'm having trouble finding a synopsis on why and how it was changed on the web

I have always used Intense Moisture... is this very different to the old one? I will be purchasing but curious to know if the texture has changed?

Nic

Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. New Intensive Moisture Balance is still oil rich for oil dry skin but now it is more hydrating as well. Kind Regards, Bernadette
