This was the second moisturizer from Dermalogica that I have used. I was given this by the ever so sweet team of dermalogica at a luncheon organized by them for bloggers.
Previously I had used Dermalogica Intensive moisture balance in winters and I loved it for its strong staying power and hydrating properties.
It is a medium-weight moisturizer to balance combination/dry skin. Deep-moisturizing Lecithin and Aloe Gel nourishes while extracts of Mallow, Cucumber, and Arnica soothe and hydrate.
1. Smooths fine lines and promotes elasticity.
2. Shields against dehydration and pollution.
3. Antioxidants help fight skin-aging free radicals.
This one is a 50 ml travel-friendly white tube with an easy to open head.
Smell & Texture:
Since it is formulated without artificial fragrances, colors or parabens, it is perfect for those who don’t like creams with overpowering smells like me.
The texture of this cream is smooth and doesn’t feel too heavy. The best thing that I like about this cream is that the minute you apply it on your face, it gives a very watery feel and quickly gets absorbed into your skin. It is not greasy at all.
After washing my face, I apply it over damp face and throat with light, upward strokes as advised on the dermalogica website.
I’ve got combination skin bordering on dry and this is one moisturizer that really helps in hydrating my skin. It leaves my skin soft, smooth and with a dewy glow without making it look greasy.
I use it night and day and it always adapts to the needs of my skin. Although I started using it in summer but it is also good for winters.
The downside is that it has no SPF but I mix it with a tiny amount of sunscreen with SPF 30 or my makeup usually has SPF in it so I’m good to go. It is a bit too pricey like all other dermalogica products but totally worth it.
