Works well


I use this moisturizer after washing my face in the mornings and evenings. It does exactly what it says it will do... It keeps my skin feeling moisturized all day, even in the cold Canadian winters. I have noticed, however, that it does clog my pores a bit as I have pretty sensitive skin. Other than that though, I do really like it and will continue to use it over the winter.

Bring back the old formula


I have been using skin smoothing cream for years, it's amazing. This new formula gives me breakouts and makes my skin rashy.



I need nothing more !!!


My face LOVES THIS CREAM! I do not need any other face cream, ever!



Loved but something changed


I have been using this product for over a year and loved it with no problems but I think something's different because this new version is causing me to break out all of sudden. A bit fustrating because I thought I was done searching.

Perfect for "Florida winters"


I use this moisturizer in the "winter" in FL to provide additional moisture for those few days where it's a bit cooler. It's the perfect amount of moisture without being greasy. I use active moist in the summer since it's so humid down here

Best Nighttime Moisturizer


I needed something to help my DRY skin this winter. I HATE how expensive this product is but it is AMAZING. I use it at night, because it is thicker and I don't have enough time in my morning routine for it to properly sink into my skin to not affect my makeup.



Finally a moisturize lasts!


I have tried so many moisturizers, drug store and high end, and none of them absorbed into my skin the way that the skin smoothing cream does. Other moisturizers would bead up and pearl off my face and if touched it, giving the appearance of me shedding skin. This one absorbs fully, doesn't pearl off, and lasts all day until I wash my face at night and reapply after. I am so glad I found it!

I have been using the old skin smoothing cream for 2 years and LOVED it. I went to grab a new bottle once I ran out, excited that it was a new "improved" formula. I was so wrong. I had a terrible reaction to it right away! My skin is red, inflamed, dry and itchy!!! This seems to be a common problem with the new formula. Someone mind telling me what ingredients are BURNING our faces?!?!



I prefer the Active Moist


I like this product, however, it feels a bit heavy when putting it on compared to the active moist cream.



I would buy this product again.


very happy with my skin

Hi there, 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


Hello , 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. Kind Regards, Bernadette


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?


Hello Pita, 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. Kind Regards, Bernadette


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?


Hello, 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. Kind Regards, Bernadette


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?


Hello, 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. Kind Regards, Bernadette




Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica! This product is offered in the 3.4oz size on the Ulta website. Thank you, The Dermalogica Team


Hi, 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.


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Calm Water Gel will soothe redness. Thanks


I can't see from the product description whether Skin Smoothing Cream has an SPF, please can you confirm ?


Hello, 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. Kind Regards, Bernadette


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!


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Try Active Moist instead. Kind Regards, Bernadette

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


Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, you may like Skin Smoothing Cream or even Super Rich Repair. Kind Regards, Bernadette

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.


Hello, Thank you for your feedback. I will email you directly to help further. Kind Regards, Bernadette
