Powered by BioReplenish Complex™, Intensive Moisture Balance is an ultra-nourishing moisturiser that restores lipid balance to dry, depleted skin for an optimal barrier performance. What does this mean? It works within your skin to eliminate bacteria that exacerbates dry skin, so if you are a dry skin sufferer, this daily moisturiser is the one for you! Utilising key ingredients and new technologies, this updated favourite from Dermalogica strengthens the skin’s lipid barrier, helps to rebalance the skin’s microbiome and offers intense nourishment to those with dry skin. Suitable for use morning and evening, Intensive Moisture Balance is the choice of daily moisturiser for those who want to nourish and replenish their dry skin.

How does it work?

BioReplenish Complex™ within delivers a proven combination of key barrier lipids to help enhance the skin’s natural resilience and support barrier recovery. Featuring Prebiotic Extracts, these help to rebalance the skin’s natural microbiome (simply the collection of organisms present on the skin). These complexes and extracts foster “good” bacteria whilst diminishing the bacteria which aggravates dryness. A powerful hit of hydration comes from Hyaluronic Acid combined with Echinacea to enhance the skin’s moisture content and reduce the appearance of fine lines.


  • For those with dry, depleted skin
  • Strengthens the skin’s lipid barrier
  • Helps to rebalance the skin’s microbiome
  • Intensely moisturises dry skin
  • Enhances skin’s moisture content and reduces fine lines

Key ingredients:

  • BioReplenish Complex™

This delivers a proven combination of key barrier lipids to help enhance the skin’s natural resilience and support barrier recovery. BioReplenish Complex™ works on a molecular level and is made up of Phytosterol (helps to enhance skin’s resilience), Fatty Acids (reinforce the skin’s barrier) and Ceramide (optimises barrier function for greater moisture retention).

  • Prebiotic Chlorella Algae Complex

Which features Chlorella Vulgaris Extract helping to rebalance the skin’s natural microbiome by fostering “good” bacteria like S. epidermis and diminishing S. aureus bacteria which exacerbates dryness.

  • Hyaluronic Acid

Combined with Echinacea Purpurea, Centella Asiatica and Aloe Barbadenis which locks in hydration to help enhance the skin’s moisture content and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Hyaluronic Acid is well known for its moisture retaining qualities - it can hold up to 1000 times it weight in water and is thus, a major hydration hit for the skin.

    Clonbur, Ireland
  • I have always used skin smoothing moisturiser but since it’s changed to Balance 2.0 my skin feels extra dry and I doesn’t feel like I’ve got moisturiser on. I tried Intensive Moisture Balance 2.0 and this suits my skin a lot better.

    Bradford, United Kingdom
  • I have now changed to Intensive Moisture Balance 2.0 having used Skin Smoothing Cream for a few years . I have found that since the product has changing to 2.0 that after a while my skin doesn’t look or feel as if it has been moisturised. Intensive Moisture Balance is better but still feel as if my skin need to be moisturised a few hours later .

  • I actually ran out of Intensive moisture balance for a few weeks and used an alternative. Skin was awful and felt uncomfortable so at last ordered my usual 100ml again and bliss the skin resumed its usual condition and I am 76 yrs old. But feel 20 years younger thanks to certain products!

  • This is such a great moisturizer for dehydrated / dry skin! Not to heavy, but still so moisturizing. Love it!

    Hoboken, Belgium
  • I’ve been using Active Moist for about 20 years but have recently noticed my skin feels quite dry especially on the cheeks. This is a combination of age (49) and being outside a lot walking my dog and riding my horse. Decided to try the Intensive Moisture Balance instead and have to say I’ve been very impressed. It still feels light when applied and my skin feels lovely and plumped. The red dry patches have disappeared ! This is definitely my new daily moisturiser !
