A facial moisturizer for men who hate the feel of moisturizers. This thin cream applies as cool as a cucumber, is oil free, and spreads like water. Super moisturizing without exacerbating oil production on my very oily combination skin. It's like milk for my skin, and I LOVE IT!

Roanoke, VA


Best everyday moisturizer


This moisturizer is so light that you can't tell you have moisturizer on! It's great to use under makeup for a smooth finish

Pittsburgh, pa


Seems like a very good moisturizer


Since I have super oily skin, I use the medibac oil control lotion on a regular basis. However I got a travel size of the active moist a while back that I use when I go out of town. I like it, it goes on nice and light. So although it's not the preferred product for me, I would definitely recommend to anyone with normal-to-dry skin who doesn't need a product with sunscreen or to fight aging.

Nice light moisturizer. Great for the summertime!

Active Moist Rules!


I've been using Active Moist for over 20 years in my daily regimen and won't use anything else. Goes on fantastically and never feels heavy or oily even on those hot humid days.
