pure light spf50

Shield the skin from UV-induced hyperpigmentation (brown spots, discoloration and uneven skin tone) with this medium-weight daytime treatment. It features Oleosome technology, which uses natural plant spheres filled with sunscreens to increase SPF performance. A powerful peptide helps regulate melanin production while a potent blend of Red and Brown Algae combined with botanical extracts, help balance uneven skin tone. Cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid fortifies the skin’s natural moisture barrier, reducing the appearance of 
fine dehydration lines. Formulated without artificial fragrances, colors or parabens.

benefits

  • Advanced Oleosome encapsulation technology increases SPF performance while using fewer chemical sunscreens.
  • Helps exfoliate surface cells
 to enhance skin tone and eliminate dark spots.
  • Provides sustained moisture delivery for optimal hydration.

how to use

Smooth a generous amount to face and neck, avoiding the eye area, preferably 30 minutes prior to sun exposure. For best results, apply after C-12 Pure Bright Serum.

quick tip

Use as a daily moisturizer for year-round protection against sun damage that can lead to signs of aging.

The perfect moisturizer with sunscreen

I love how smooth this product goes on for being a moisturizer and sunscreen. I use this daily and have noticed an improvement to overall skin pigmentation and firmness.

I am unsure if i would buy this product again

By 

from Brisbane, Australia

Comments about pure light spf50:

I have used this product before, but have not noticed any change in my pigmentation, but am giving it another go. I am unsure in how much of the product to use on my face, neck, décolletage, as the instructions only say to "apply a generous amount". I would appreciate a response as I believe a product with a sunscreen should actually state how much you need to apply to ensure you get the benefits of the sunscreen and that you are not wasting the product (e.g. 1 pump for face, 1 pump for neck, 1 pump for décolletage). Please respond.

good stuff

By 

from Los Angeles

Comments about pure light spf50:

I've been using this for three weeks. I dont think it's improved my hyper-pigmentation yet but I still love the moisturizer and that it includes SPF50. Saves a step in adding a layer of sun screen which is nice for a new mom like me. I used to use the smoothing cream and still do at night but I like this for the daytime.

Not quite moisturizing enough

By 

from Oakland, CA, USA

Site Member

Comments about pure light spf50:

Unfortunately this product left me needing more moisture after just a couple hours. The heavy spf also looked chalkier on my skin than the same spf in dynamic skin recovery does. I would still recommend it to someone who might be oily with lots of dark spots and needs that repaired more than they need moisture. I'm too combination/don't have enough of a problem with hyperpigmentation for it to be worth it.

Moisturizing sunscreen

By 

from Omaha, NE, USA

Verified Buyer

Comments about pure light spf50:

I have had many problems with sunscreens for my face and this product

is working very well for me. I have very dry, sensitive skin and I haven't had any issues with this at all. It leaves my skin feeling natural and not dried out, along

with protecting my aging skin from the sun. Couldn't work better.

    Does pure light spf 50 work well for people with combination skin? It seems like most users have dry skin. I wonder if this will make me break out.

  • Q:

    Is this for sensitive skin and does it have any fragrance in it? I'm not use to wearing sun protection and I'm getting small bumps on my face. I'm not sure if this is the cause because I am using other dermalogica products as well

  • Q:

    Hi.
    Summer uses an anti-aging series of SPF50. Winter heard that spf50 was strong.
    But would you like for winter to use this pure light?
    Or is spf30 preferred? Please tell me recommended goods in that case.
    I'm 46 years old.
    Thank you.

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. We recommend to use the size of a pea of our moisturizers. For full SPF protection, Dermatologists recommend the size of a tablespoon for the face.
