Honest reviews


Bland and boring, but it works

Really a boring product, but it works! My skin had been flaking off from some use of a retin-A cream, and this did the trick to balance out my skin. It’s pretty much scent-free (very mild) and has a good texture. I’d give it one more star if it had SPF and came in a pump bottle. Not sure if I will repurchase, as it hasn’t quite made the list of "HOLY GRAIL" items, but it did its job when I needed it.Now that my skin is no longer flaking off, I’ve stopped using it in favour of other creams with SPF / anti-wrinkle benefits (who knows how real those benefits are hah).

Love Dermalogica

I love Dermalogica products! I have tried several brands and my skin does the best with Dermalogica. I have several ones that I can’t live without and Intensive Moisture Balance is one of them!!!

great product

Nothing beats dermatologica products. They just make great stuff! We have used their stuff for a long time, and it really prevents breakouts and does what its supposed to.

Great skin cream that won’t break you out

My dermatolist recommended this product over 10 years ago. I know how dermalogiats and skin care technicians, love to hype the newest stuff, so they are probably now hyping some other product that is 5 times this price. I say if it isn’t broke, why should I fix it? ;-)I have tried most of them and have always come back to Dermalogica either Intensive Skin moisturizer or their lighter product, Active Moist or Skin Smoothing cream (medium).I use the intensive moisture balance mainly in th winter when my skin is most dry. I like all their products, as none of them are pore clogging or feel greasy on your face.Just be sure you buy from a reputable seller as there are fakes out there.

My favotire!

This one is favorite cream for about a year now. My skin is hydrated throughout the day. I will purchase it again.

Great for combination skin!

I have combination skin and have had a challenging time finding a moisturizer that is nourishing yet won’t break me out – but I’ve found it! I really love this ‘moisture balance’ and it’s true – it does what it says. I’ve been break out free for over one month now – it’s great!

This product is the only one that doesn’t make my sensitive skin unhappy! 🙂 It is just thick enough that it’s a great moisturizer, but not too thick that it feels like olive oil – haha.

I have been using this for 2 years and I wouldn’t use anything else. I have extremely dry skin and have tried so many different products. This is the only moisturizer that works for me

I love this product.

I love this product. Many moisturizers irritate my skin, including products like Clinique. This is the one moisturizer that doesn’t! It is NOT greasy or smelly. My face feels soft after I use it and I only need to use a little bit.

LOVE this product.

I love Dermalogica products and this is one of my favorites. It is a super rich moisturizer that goes well either alone or under makeup. It does not feel or look greasy, and it’s great on sensitive skin.

Awesome for dry/sensitive skin.

Love this moisturizer. I have very dry, prematurely aging skin. Everything about this moisturizer is wonderful. Good, thick texture but still absorbs completely. Does not irritate my skin. Gets rid of that tight feeling, and leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft and smooth. I also love that since the last tube I bought (did I mention it lasts forever?), Dermalogica has removed the parabens from their formulas. Love, love, love. And love the Amazon price!

Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance

I use Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance lotion in combination with Dermalogica Ultra Calming Cleanser and I’m very happy with this regiment. It’s soothing for dry or sensitive skin. I use a little extra on my hands, I highly recommend this product.

Darcy Vidal, CA

Good Daytime Moisturizer

It’s a great day time moisturizer as long as you apply additional spf of 15+. I actually have oily skin but wanted something lighter than my lancome cream in the daytime that’s anti-aging. You get a lot of product for a decent price too!

Callie White Sands Missile Range, NM

Great Product

This is a great light moisturizer not too heavy so I can wear in the summer. It does not cause acne or any other skin problems and hydrates my skin. My skin is glowing so I highly recommend this product

Laurie Springboro, PA

It’s okay

It’s okay, not really what I was looking for. My skin is dry and I want a moisturizer that works and doesn’t cost $$$$. I guess it works for some and was suggested by a tech that did my facial in a salon, maybe that was their primary product. I will not buy again and continue my "venture" to find a product that works for me.
