Doesn't help my dry skin at all

Quite a good product to use during the winter months when your skin really dries out. I would not use in the summer as it is quite thick in consistency and would make me break out. There is no fragrance to it and it is good for sensitive skin which I have. The only draw back is it is quite pricey and you only get a very small tube of it. I have just repurchased it for the 2nd time.

I used this both day and night. It does not have enough moisture for my skin, even over the EL Advanced Night Repair. My skin had multiple tiny wrinkles, plus any foundation slid off of my skin. Odd combination, I know. It might be a good product during the summer so will try it again in a few months.

PROS: No harsh scent (just a mild, natural scent.) Very moisturizing. LOTS of great ingredients to help with aging and healthy skin. Did not bother the sensitivity of my skin at all. Feels very nourishing going on.
CONS: This clogged my pores and even caused blackheads. I took it out of my schedule and put it back in to confirm. It happened again. (I've tried a LOT of moisturizers, even heavier ones, and very rarely have had this reaction.)
PURCHASING TIPS: Look around online. You can get this cheaper at places like SkinMedix and Beautybar.com
ALTERNATES: My new love is Derma e's Hyaluronic Acid line night cream.

I have combination skin, more oily than dry but not acne prone, though my pores easily clog (blackhead and whitehead city if I use thw wrong products!) Use this as my night cream. Perfect amount of moisture to replenish skin after exfoliation. Sinks in well and doesn't clog pores or cause break outs. Use with the AgeSmart system or Ultra Calming Cleanser, depending on the day. Leaves skin feeling plump and soft in the morning. Can't say enough!

I had previously used Dermalogica's Active Moist (for years I've alternated between this and Darphin's Arovita C) and had very good experience with it. However, incouraged by a supposedly better ingredients of Intensive Moisture Balance, I decided to try it.
This is definitely one of the best moisturisers I've used. It got my skin competely rid of dry patches while leaving it feeling very smooth and moist. I use it morning and evening applying a generous amount on my face that quickly sinks in without making my face look oily. The smell is sorf of chemical which I don't mind at all but some might. Packaging is, as with most Dermalogica products, very practical, letting you control how much you squeeze out while keeping the product safe inside the tube.

I love this stuff. I was on a hunt for a really good, moisturizing face cream that I can wear under my makeup and not cause any dry patches. I have been using a prescription strength lightening cream that contains kojic acid, hydroquione and retinol that is making my skin very sensitive and red with major flaking. I went to Ulta and looked around what seemed like forever and came across this line. At first i was skeptical since I had never tried the line and i was afraid i would end up with a huge rash from the ingredients. I normally use erno laszlo but I can't wear the balm during the day and the supposedly hydrating day cream is not hydrating enough. so I picked up the small size and i love this stuff! i have been using it 2x a day for about a month after i cleanse and tone and i love it. no breakouts, no rash reactions, nothing! no fragrance which i love. i only wish it had a spf but i guess beggers can't be choosers. i will continue to use this product and i will get the bigger bottle next.

Not for me. I found it took awhile to sink in and my pores are congested and huge. After it does sink in, there's no dewiness or glow. My skin looks dull. I will say I have no flakes, dry patches, or tightness, but I've used much better moisturizers that were able to relieve dryness and up radiance. If you're skin is fickle I'd recommend trying the sample size of this. I know I'm glad I didn't go full size the first time around.
Edit: It wasn't his moisturizer that was dulling my complexion and clogging my pores--it was my cleanser. Once I changed that and continued to use this cream I noticed a huge difference. My skin went back to healthy and plump, and no oilies! I still prefer Darphin's Arovita C for the glow it gives, but Intensive Moisture Balance is pretty good stuff.

This year, Melbourne's winter has been particularly BAD with rain, wind and biting cold temperatures everyday. As such, my faithful little La Mer Creme de La Mer gel-cream that was so good for me in Spring/Summer just didn't do it for me this Autumn/Winter. My skin was so dry and patchy, I had to resort to a whole new skin regime to get it back on track. I love Dermalogica for it's Microfoliant but I'm not a huge fan of its Active Moist. However, I was keen to try the Intensive Moisture Balance and seriously, it's the best thing since sliced bread. It's so hydrating without being heavy and sinks in almost straight away. I don't mind the tube packaging as it helps me control how much moisturizer to use and is definitely more hygenic than a jar. Initially, I only used this in the morning but quickly adopted it for night as well and my skin has been positively GLOWING ever since! No breakouts whatsoever.

I've tried all dermalogica products for anti-aging and sensitive skin. THEY ARE ALL BAD. Full of parabens, silicones and pepitides ( stimulators of colagens type of SCAR)
Very bad products. This is my sincere experience with Dermalogica products.
