Just way too scented from the essential oils for my liking. I find its a "dry oit" and is absorbed very quickly...so quickly that I can not use my clarisonic silicone smart profile head to massage my skin without it drying. So I would recommend if you are looking for a dry oil. I'm gonna stick with my tried and true Argan oil.

Smells lovely. Has a nice silicone-y feel when applied and leaves skin moisturized. No adverse reaction. Just doesn't do anything except smell good for a moment to justify the price. Will not repurchase.

Returned. This broke me out every single time I used it. The rest doesn't matter.

This is a solid performer. I've been using this moisturizer over the summer and it has many great qualities.I didn't think a gel would be moisturizing enough. I was wrong. It turns to a watery consistency as soon as you start spreading it. It absorbs very nicely and just leaves my skin feeling moist/moisturized. I don't know that this will be sufficient when the weather turns colder. Even if it doesn't work out for winter this is still a keeper. It keeps my skin comfortable under primer, heavy coverage all day foundation, powder, and setting spray. Not bad. It doesn't sting and is very comfortable on my sensitive skin.I use this primarily in the morning, occasionally in the evening which also worked. I just prefer something more in the evening.Packaging is standard and sufficient. No problems. The scent is dreamy to me and dissipates quickly. My only complaint: I do think Dermalogica's prices too high. However, most of the products I have tried have really been nice. Buying at Ulta at least gets me points I can cash in towards future purchases and the products are priced high enough to qualify for free shipping. I will buy again.

I was drawn to Active Moist mostly due to all the plant derived ingredients. The beautician at my salon whittled it down to just 2 moisturizers that she thought were suited to my skin type, and based on the ingredients list I settled on Dermalogica. Having just stumbled upon the long-forgotten tube I'd stuck in the back of a pile of half used products, I thought I would finally do a write-up on this. My first attempt at applying it was on a morning - bad idea, I found it did not sink into my skin at all and just sat there, making any sunblock applied over it an impossible task. I found this unusual as the product is oil-free right? Thinking I had perhaps applied too much product I removed with a makeup wipe and applied even less this time around but the effect was the same, albeit less pronounced. The next time I applied was on an evening, at the end of my cleansing routine. This for me was more ideal as I had no other products to apply over this and could let it sink in (or not as in my case) overnight. What I liked about Active Moist the most, apart from ingredients, was the fact that it did not cause any adverse reactions - breakout, itchiness etc. It hydrated well - very well in fact, but I do feel more could be done to improve the formulation so that it doesn't sit on the skin and absorbs more readily. Reading the other reviews though I seem to be in a minority so please read my experience with an open mind.
