I am impressed.


This cream makes such a drastic difference. I used a different one recently and it did nothing compared to this. I would absolutely buy this. It gives you after facial like results. I was not aware before this promotion. I would absolutely reccomend this to everyone!



Miss Old Formula


The new product is making me break out like crazy. :( such a waste of money. I loved the old one. I'll have to try another line or brand and hopefully get my skin back on track.

San Jose


luv it


I use this every day after washing my face, and my skin looks smd feels so smooth!

Arlington Heights


Really enjoying this cream!


I love the texture of this cream it's very hydrating and it settles well with a glowy finish, not greasy. Doesn't ball up when I put oil or sunscreen on top and that is amazing for me since I use it in the am. I've only been using it a week and can feel it helping my skin to retain moisture a little better. Cant wait to see how much it helps. I love that it is a 3.4 oz bottle so I feel comfortable bringing it down to my neck! Lol

Pretty good for daily use


I was actually pretty impressed with the Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream. This is a nice daily facial cream, not too heavy. And it worked great in my normal to dry skin. Applying once a day in the morning seemed to be enough for me (I use a different product as a night cream). The only thing I didn't like is that it has a scent - it is not good nor bad, and it is not an added scent or heavy fragrance or anything like that either, but it is just there. It's kind of a plant scent, and probably comes from the ingredients. The good thing is that it goes away within seconds after application, so it doesn't bother so much. And yes, it is pricey, but the tube will last forever since it has twice the amount of a regular face cream. I recommend this cream, especially if you have a normal to dry skin that doesn't need a lot of maintenance.

This Cream is Wonderful, it goes on smoothly and it has a Great Smell. I love it and will buy it again and again.

Spring, Texas




I am absolutely happy with this product. It has so many amazing ingredients that has provided so much moisture to my skin that I can not stop looking at my reflection on the mirror, lol! I can't believe how healthy and younger it looks! My skin also looks and feels so soft, that It is a delight to touch it! I will defined continue purchasing this moisturizer.

Fresno, TX


Price is just so expensive


It's a lightweight cream, not overly heavy, and not oily or greasy feeling. I used to use just a few Dermalogica products - mainly the Ultracalming line - and I liked them but I never thought my skin was "great". About a year ago, I expanded the number of products that I was using - adding this moisturizer as well as their sunscreen. What a difference I saw immediately - so much so that I only use Dermalogica products for my facial skin care anymore. Depending on the season/weather, I go back and forth between the Active Moist and the Skin Smoothing Cream & I love them both.



The best skin smoothing cream


I think the best to keep my face so hydrate





This works wonders! I used it before bed time and the next morning it left my skin feeling nice and soft. I'm prone to sensitive skin when I apply product but this hasn't irratated me at all! I think I just found my regular go to product!

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 , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can layer hydration: Multi Active Toner, Skin Hydrating Booster and then Skin Smoothing Cream mixed with a drop of Phyto Replenish Oil. Kind Regards, Bernadette


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?


Hello Pita, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, this would be the best product for you. You may also like Special Cleansing Gel, Multi Active Toner and Skin Hydrating Booster. Kind Regards, Bernadette


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?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Your skin may need layered hydration to prevent transepidermal water loss. You can layer hydrating products like Multi Active Toner, Skin Hydrating Booster, Phyto Replenish Oil and Skin Smoothing Cream. Kind Regards, Bernadette


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?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can layer Multi Active Toner, Skin Hydrating Booster and Skin Smoothing Cream for best results. That should be enough, but you can always add Phyto Replenish Oil as well. Kind Regards, Bernadette




Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica! This product is offered in the 3.4oz size on the Ulta website. Thank you, The Dermalogica Team


Hi, I'm trying to decide between skin smoothing cream or calm water gel. I have dry sensitive skin and redness around the cheek are. Can you please help? Thank you.


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Calm Water Gel will soothe redness. Thanks


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


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Skin Smoothing Cream does not have SPF. You can add Solar Defense Booster SPF 50 for UV protection. Kind Regards, Bernadette


I've been using Intensive Moisture Balance but I fear it has too much oil for my skin. Since using, I experience getting ONE cystic pimple that clears when I stop using the product only to resurface again when I start. So I need to discontinue this product and find a more suitable moisturizer. My skin is combination mature skin. I periodically get BioPeel treatment which is amazing on my skin and significantly diminishes the red spots caused by a cystic pimple Would this be best, or which Dermalogica product might be better? Because of the success getting periodic BioPeel treatments, I'd like to compliment them with the right product as well as not undermine them with the wrong product. Fragrance-free and oil free are important I think.


I am a 53 yr old woman and my skin is dry (dehydrated) oily combination and I use skin smoothing also. Intensive moisture made me break out also. I have tried Active moist but that wasn't enough. Definitely try skin smoothing!


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Try Active Moist instead. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I'm a 48 year old woman would you recommend the skin smoothing cream as a night time moisturiser? I use your spf 50 day time moisturiser


Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, you may like Skin Smoothing Cream or even Super Rich Repair. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I just purchased the skin smoothing cream and used 3 times, both AM and PM and I noticed itching and red patches on the neck and cheeks after after a few minutes of applying it. I have combination skin (mostly dry) and use retin-a every other night. Please help.


Hello, Thank you for your feedback. I will email you directly to help further. Kind Regards, Bernadette
