This has become my favorite night cream. I used to use a very expensive Guerlain night cream, and was loyal to it for years, but in the course of trying (and finding so many new loves) in the Elemis line, I decided to give this product a try too. I no longer use my old faithful Guerlain, I now use this and this alone. I truly appreciate the gentleness, the fact that it's fragrance free, and it doesn't cause any breakouts. I'm in my early 40's, dry skin, sensitive and acne prone at times. This product delivers the perfect amount of hydration without making me look like an oil slick, sinks in very fast. Just a beautiful product, highly recommend.

Great for dark circles!

Submitted as part of a free sample programI do not have tons of wrinkles, so I can't speak about that; however, it is great for bags and circles for this always tired girl! The cream is lightweight and soaks in well. I apply just before my under eye concealer, after thoroughly moisturizing my face. It doesn't have an overpowering scent, just "fresh" if that's a scent! I would recommend this to anyone that likes to brighten their eyes and appear more alert. Tip: While it's not a feature of this cream per se, the cap is metal so I sometimes use it to help rub in the cream. It's soothing and wakes me up a bit, especially if the cap is chilly!

Lightweight & Hydrating

I am engaged in an ongoing battle with cystic acne and a dermatologist recommended I overhaul my skincare products and switch to oil-free. I used to use the Skin Smoothing Cream and I loved the texture of it, but it was too heavy for my oily skin. I've been using Active Moist for around 12 months now and this combined with other oil-free Dermalogica products, oil-free makeup and regularly cleaning my makeup brushes has made a big difference to my skin. I still get outbreaks, but nowhere near as often. Active Moist spreads really nicely over the skin, so I don't need to use loads of it. I use a little more in the evenings before bed. It's lightweight but still has a satisfying texture - my skin doesn't feel tight after applying it, which I've found in the past with other lighter moisturisers. I can't quite get away with using it as an eye cream, which I used to do with the Skin Smoothing Cream, but that's fine. If you have oily skin and need a lightweight moisturiser that still gives you that smooth, hydrated feeling then this is the one. Less

This is a very lightweight moisturizer I love to use it on the days that I think my skin feels normal but I still need that moisture. It’s not heavy at all so it’s fantastic to use under makeup. I love to use it under makeup because sometimes some moisturizers are too heavy and for us combination skin girls, our T zone gets quite oily in the middle of the day so a lightweight moisturizer will help prevent the build up of too much oils. #Beautyverse
