Product Review: Dermalogica Active Moist

I think it might be high time that I introduce you to my all time favourite facial moisturiser. Dermalogica’s Active Moist. I was sent some of the Dermalogica Active Moist for review by Australian Online Beauty Store Active Skin and I have to say, my skin had definitely missed this product.

What is great about this product…

Everything. Okay sorry, that is cheating. Dermalogica Active Moist is my favourite facial moisturiser for the following reasons. 1: It is fragrance free. (and we all know how much I dislike facial skincare products that are heavily scented!) In fact, this is one of my favourite things about most of the Dermalogica line. 2: It is great for my excessively oily skin. This is one of the few moisturisers I can use in summer, and know that it will not make my face look extra shiny. 3: It is super lightweight. The moisturiser is very light and sinks into skin so quickly, leaving barely a trace of product showing on the skin. Although it is so lightweight and great for oily skin (not greasy at all) the product still feels very hydrating and moisturising on my skin. 4: It is calming and helps to settle my prone-to-redness skin. I also really like the fact that that this product seems to be not at all threatening to the male species. Mr B has often “borrowed” my Active Moist – which is good and bad, good for him and his skin, but bad for me because I run out a lot faster when he’s slathering it onto his face.

What is not so great about this product…

I would say value for money with this product is definitely there, if you have expensive skincare taste. Otherwise paying $79 for a 100ml sized moisturiser might seem excessive to some.

My Rating: 9/10

The Dermalogica Active Moist retails for $79 AUD for 100ml, or $58 AUD for 50ml and is available for purchase online from Australian Online Beauty Retailer Active Skin.

Newsflash: Bloom Colour Cards

Australian cosmetics company Bloom have released these gorgeous Colour Cards to help you out when you can’t quite decide which lip colour you want to be wearing each day. The glossy formula delivers sheer to medium coverage while moisturising and conditioning your lips. “Each credit card-sized palette contains six universally wearable shades that are lightly flavoured with our signature blend of vanilla and mandarin essential oils,” says Natalie Bloom. There are three trays to choose from – Pretty in Pink, Natural Delight, and Colour Chameleon. (my favourite is definitely natural delight – the tray pictured) These would be great for those of you like me who prefer a more natural look during the daytime, but like to mix it up at night. Perfect for those days where you go from the office to a bar for after work drinks! The Bloom Colour Cards retail for $14.95 AUD and are available for purchase from Myer, David Jones, the Bloom Flagship store in South Yarra or online from Bloom Cosmetics.
