I have oily skin which can be dehydrated, during the day I use active moist but at night I switch between active moist and skin smoothing cream.
But when travelling I can go from the tropic weather to snowing and windy. But my skin struggles with hydration can I layer moisturisers for example the smoothing cream and then a layer of sleep cocoon at night? I also use tretinion every night as well.
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can layer hydration: Multi Active Toner, Skin Hydrating Booster and then Skin Smoothing Cream mixed with a drop of Phyto Replenish Oil.
Hello! I have recently discovered that i have a dehydrated skin that overproduces oil as a result, which i am trying to fix now. Would this be the most suitable moisturiser? What other products would complement it?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, this would be the best product for you. You may also like Special Cleansing Gel, Multi Active Toner and Skin Hydrating Booster.
I purchased this intense hydration cream and have been using it the past two weeks but my skin continues to get dryer and dryer, I now have flakey white skin around my chin area. If this isn't for dry skin what would be?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Your skin may need layered hydration to prevent transepidermal water loss. You can layer hydrating products like Multi Active Toner, Skin Hydrating Booster, Phyto Replenish Oil and Skin Smoothing Cream.
Hi. I'm going on the isotretinoin medication and was wondering if this product will provide me enough moisture, when my skin will be extremely dry and dehydrated? If not, are there any other products you would recommend?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can layer Multi Active Toner, Skin Hydrating Booster and Skin Smoothing Cream for best results. That should be enough, but you can always add Phyto Replenish Oil as well.
IM TRYING TO ORDER THE SKIN SMOOTING CREAM. IT SAYS IT HAS MORE THAN ONE SIZE BUT ONLY ALOOWING ME TO ORDER THE BIGGEST ONE. I WOULD LIKE TO TRY BEFORE I PURCHASE A BIG ONE.
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica! This product is offered in the 3.4oz size on the Ulta website.

I'm trying to decide between skin smoothing cream or calm water gel. I have dry sensitive skin and redness around the cheek are. Can you please help? Thank you.
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Calm Water Gel will soothe redness.
I can't see from the product description whether Skin Smoothing Cream has an SPF, please can you confirm ?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Skin Smoothing Cream does not have SPF. You can add Solar Defense Booster SPF 50 for UV protection.
I've been using Intensive Moisture Balance but I fear it has too much oil for my skin. Since using, I experience getting ONE cystic pimple that clears when I stop using the product only to resurface again when I start. So I need to discontinue this product and find a more suitable moisturizer. My skin is combination mature skin. I periodically get BioPeel treatment which is amazing on my skin and significantly diminishes the red spots caused by a cystic pimple Would this be best, or which Dermalogica product might be better? Because of the success getting periodic BioPeel treatments, I'd like to compliment them with the right product as well as not undermine them with the wrong product. Fragrance-free and oil free are important I think.
I am a 53 yr old woman and my skin is dry (dehydrated) oily combination and I use skin smoothing also. Intensive moisture made me break out also. I have tried Active moist but that wasn't enough. Definitely try skin smoothing!
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Try Active Moist instead.
I'm a 48 year old woman would you recommend the skin smoothing cream as a night time moisturiser? I use your spf 50 day time moisturiser
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, you may like Skin Smoothing Cream or even Super Rich Repair.
I just purchased the skin smoothing cream and used 3 times, both AM and PM and I noticed itching and red patches on the neck and cheeks after after a few minutes of applying it. I have combination skin (mostly dry) and use retin-a every other night. Please help.
Thank you for your feedback. I will email you directly to help further.
