Perfect for dry skin

Im 38 and have very dry skin, which gets worse in the winter. This cream leaves my skin hydrated all day, and does exactly what it claims. I will surely buy it again and im very pleased.

Amazing for winter hands!

5

I received a sample of the intensive moisture balance and tried it on my face. It was good for a one-time rescue as I have extremely sensitive skin during the winter. Because of this, I rely heavily on the ultrcalming line Dec-Feb (the barrier repair is a must). After trying it on my face I had a very mild reaction, but I was happy with the nourishment it gave to my skin. After that, I tried it on my severely irritated winter hands. Amazing! The relief was instant. I'm so glad I have this product

Can't find a comparable product

5

I've been using this for over a year. I had sensitive combination skin, after adding this to my routine, I achieved normal skin. It is expensive so I looked around for another similar moisturizer and I can't find anything close. It's worth it to try the travel size of you are not sure, or get the 3.4 oz if you are cause I have looked and there's nothing else like it. Don't waste your money shopping around.

Love it

Moisture balance does it all.. smooth, healthy looking skin

Quality results but doesn't smell nice

4

I get very dry skin in the winter and have searched for creams for years. I actually think this one works very well and will probably continue to buy it. The reason it doesn't get 5 stars is the smell. I actually think it smells too clinical or too much like chemicals. I am not looking for excessive fragrance, but as compared to the Dermalogica Active Moist, the smell is bad. I really like the Active Moist smell better but think this cream is a better fit for my dry skin.

Not impressed

Eventhough its adverises as noncomedogenic I got black heads for the first time ever.

It's okay, doesn't do much for my aging skin

Its an okay moisturizer. I live in a very dry climate and so I need a good moisturizer. It doesn't do the job for me. I still have dry skin mid day and so I need to reapply. Won't be buying this one again.

Fantastic Winter Moisterizer

My skin craves extra moisture, in the winter, and this provides just the right amount without being heavy, or greasy.

Is this product non-comodegenic?

Thank you for your inquiry. All Dermalogica products are deemed "non-comedogenic" as we do not implement ingredients that are known to cause comedones on the skin.
