    Firstly i tried few samples given by dermatologist and i really can see the difference its very lightweight doesn't feel like something is on my face and hydrates my skin all day along.Love it.Already ordered the full pack.
  • My go-to moisturizer
    An excellent light feeling moisturizer for the day that soaks into my skin well and doesn’t leave it heavy or greasy.
  • Great for my combination skin
    Lasts for ages and is great to apply
  • My favourite moisturiser
    Love this, have been using it for years and will continue to do so. This product is great value for money, has no fragrance, and is great on my very sensitive skin. It's a winner
  • Good all around moisturiser
    Just purchased by second tube. It’s good but still searching for the next best thing.
  • Awesome Moisturiser!
    Fantastic lightweight moisturiser which smooths and hydrates my skin!

    Lovely hydration without feeling greasy, I love this moisturiser
  • 10/10
    My skin has never been more plump and hydrated- light weight and non greasy this is a great product! Just add a booster if you need some SPF- easy!
  • Still my favourite
    Still my most favourite moisturiser! My skin looks and feels great!
  • Active moist
    Fantastic moisturiser. Not too heavy but hydrating.
  • Light & effective
    This is a great light moisturiser that's perfect for my combination skin. I love using it when I need moisture but that won't leave me shiny by the end of the day. Love it!
  • Leaves skin feeling fresh and nourished
    I use this product twice a day. I use it in the morning, after cleansing and under the SPF primer, and at night. It leaves my skin feeling fresh, yet nourished. Sometimes at night, I add a few drops of the skin hydrating booster for a more intensified moisture. This product is great, especially during the humid summer months as it leaves your skin feeling fresh.

    I highly recommend this product!
  • Great value & super effective
    I've been using this moisturiser for a year now and it is the best value for money out of any moisturiser I've purchased. It sinks into the skin extremely quickly, and is very helpful for healing dry patches. The formula is also really potent - just a small amount covers the entire face, meaning the larger sizes easily last for months.
  • Lightweight but moisturising
    I love this moisturiser! It feels great on my skin and smells lovely. Works well on my dry/combination skin
  • Active Moist
    This is the only moisturizer I use it is lovely and light does not clog skin
  • Active Moist
    Love this moisturiser, the smell is amazing.
  • Lightweight and lasts all day
    My skin is a weird combo of dry and prone to spots and I've always struggled to find a lightweight moisturizer that does the job but doesn't clog up my skin. This is the answer! Active moist is just amazing - I am converted.
  • Best Moisturiser EVER!
    Love love love this moisturiser. Have been using it for years and every time I try a different one I keep coming back to Active Moist. Its light yet gives great coverage and with no thick oily after feel. Definitely highly recommended!
  • Awesome everyday moisturiser
    I love this moisturiser, it's light and non greasy, leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated without being heavy
  • An everyday essential
    I love the way Active Moist feels on my skin, this is a great daily essential in my skincare routines.
  • Light & soothing
    Great light weight everyday moisturiser - little goes a long way
  • Best cream for oily skin
    I've been using this cream for about 5 years now religiously in the summer. It feels super silky and hydrating, without leaving your skin feeling greasy. I had a lot of issues with acne when I was younger and could never find a light weight moisturiser. I could not recommend this product enough!
  • Light and Easy
    This is the perfect moisturiser for me because after applying it I don't end up all oily and greasy at the end of the day.
  • Love it, perfect for my skin
    I used to get greasy shiny skin so my therapist suggested that I switch to Active Moist. It's perfect for my skin, light, easy to apply and no more shine. Especially suits me in the warmer months.
  • Great product
    This moisturiser has been amazing, my skin is usually quite oily so this lightweight product has made such a difference. Good value for money as you only need to use a small amount.
  • Active Moist
    Absolutely love this product! It's so lightweight and soothing. I feel like my skin can breath
  • Great Moisturiser!
    Active Moist is fantastic for sensitive skin which doesn't need too much hydration. I've noticed a real difference in my skin texture since using the product and no break outs!
  • Fantastic for oily skin!
    Absorbs really quick and keeps my skin super smooth and fresh throughout the day. Love the smell too!
  • Silky soft
    Began using this upon recommendation from a face-mapping appointment as I needed to hydrate my skin more. I was previously a religious oil user (and still love oils), but using this - I can really notice a change in the overall appearance and it does feel very soft after applying. Am a convert!
  • Active Moist
    I love Active Moist and my skin just thrives on this lightweight moisturiser :)
  • Active Moist - Oooh La La
    I had been wanting to try this for a while, and when I saw the new Christmas Gift Sets that came with a couple of extra goodies, I went ahead and ordered. Lived up to its reputation, skin is left so smooth and no greasy after feel. Smells nice too. I'm hooked! Highly recommended.
  • Active moist leaves my skin feeling clean
    I have used active moist everyday for the last 3 years and I can't get enough of it. Skin goes from dry to soft.
  • Light but hydrating
    I have been using this moisturiser for a very long time and I still loving it. It is very light weight but moisturising, ideal for summer and spring. Most importantly it does not break me out! I definitely recommend this!
  • Awesome Moisturiser!
    Lovely moisturiser - non greasy. Feels like you're not even wearing anything.
  • 5 out of 5
    It is a great product for the whole family in summer. It is light and airy, but it keeps your skin moist.
  • love active moist
    After years of looking for a moisturiser that didn't make my skin feel clogged up active moist fits the bill perfectly for me
  • light moisturiser excellent for sensitive skin
    I've had so much trouble finding a moisturiser that doesn't make my skin feel irritated. Yay finally one that I can use without my skin feeling hot and bothered.
  • Love love love
    Been using this for about 5 + years now and wouldn't be without it, I have normal/oily skin and this is perfect. You only need the smallest amount. 100ml lasts me 3 months easily. It's great that their has been a price drop. It's so soft and glides on really nice. Smells really good to. Best moisturiser.
  • Non Greasy
    This is a wonderful light weight, non greasy moisturizer. Perfect for my oily skin.
  • Lovely & lightweight
    I LOVE this moisturiser..... I have dry, breakout prone skin so can't use any cream-style moisturiser, but this lotion is perfect for me. It's very light and absorbs instantly into my dry skin, and it doesn't clog or leave any oily residue or shine. It doesn't last anywhere near as long as the rest of my Dermalogica products, but still, I wouldn't be without it!
  • So light and makes your skin feel so soft
    I have always had an oily nose and forehead, but once I have cleaned with the special cleansing gel then use the moisturiser my skin is soft to touch and doesn't get oily anymore!
  • Awesome but expensive
    Love this moisturizer. It is light and fresh and glides on nicely leaving my skin soft and smooth, not oily or dry. I would happily use this all the time but I cant justify the cost. The smaller tube doesn't last very long, and the bigger one is nearly $100 ouch! I know the prices have come down, but they need to come down further for this to be a regular purchase for me, unfortunately.
  • Perfect day time & summer moisture
    Perfect for those warmer days. It's very light and airy. Very nice to wear under make up.
  • Wonderful
    I love this product combats dryness while being lightweight. It is great on oily areas of the skin. great all round product!
  • Active Moist
    I love this product, it is light weight yet never leaves the skin dry. I have used this product for years now and I will not change.
  • Great product, great customer service
    This product is light lovely and does what a moisturizer should.

    I got some free samples with the order, which is so nice, give me incentive to order online instead going to a pharmacy.

  • Wonder-Cream
    I use Active Moist on my face and oil control cream on my forehead (because I have a fringe). This product is outstanding. It lasts all day with a subtle herbal smell which is perfect. My face remains shine/oil free and my skin is baby soft. I haven't had a break out yet using this product. Total wonder-cream.
  • Recommend Active Moist
    I used this moisturiser a while ago and I can still recall the amazing results I experienced. Instantly my skin felt smooth and fresh. It absorbs beautifully too and lasts all day. Thoroughly recommend!
  • Really Good!
    This has a gorgeous scent and considering I am such a fussy skin care user, this moisturiser is one of the best I have ever used. Pity it is so pricey!
  • Great moisturizer
    Got this as present for xmas. It's pure heaven! It's light but very moisturizing and it doesn't grease up my skin. I've always had a sensitive skin but this doesn't break out my skin. Definitely loving the one who gave this to me now ;)
  • Fabulous
    I love this moisturizer because I have an oily T-zone and sensitive, dry cheeks and this moisturizer works perfectly without over moisturizing my T-zone and drying my cheeks. I also only have to apply a little twice a day to make my skin glow and smooth throughout the day.

  • Turn back time
    After being prescribed with dehydrated skin I tried Active Moist - what a difference! This smells delicious (like you've just been to a spa treatment). It glides on smoothly and absorbs to make your skin feel soft and young again. Definite recommendation!
  • Best Moisturiser
    I use active moist on my combination skin and it is the best moisturiser I have ever used! I love this product so light but so hydrating. A really good balancing moisuriser.
  • Keeping it Fresh
    I'm a big fan of the active moist. It's has a light feel when you apply, not greasy like some and makes my skin feel so fresh! The only moisturiser I will by.
  • Fab
    Love this product, is perfect for oily or combination skin.It absorbs well, and leaves a light fresh feeling not heavy and thick which is not what you want with oily skin that's prone to breakouts. It also works well on dry areas such as my forehead.

  • Delish
    I love this moisturiser, you only need the smallest amount, it spreads so beautifully and makes your skin feel so fresh and smooth. And it smells divine
