This is a great formulation but like their "calming line" it has lavender which is supposed to be calming... I am a nurse and an esthetician and I have man patients who cannot tolerate the lavender INCLUDING ME! I keep trying it but ugh. I may give it ANOTHER go around
Comments about pure light spf50:
Love this stuff! Smooth, Not heavy, not shiny and doesnt irritate my skin.
I've been using the pure light cream (along with C-12 pure bright serum and pure night cream) for about 2 months on some patches of really hyperpigmented skin on my forearms and face and the difference is dramatic! I agree with some reviewers that the cream is a little greasy, but I'm going to try using it more sparingly.
Love this moisturizer. Its smooth and not greasy and it holds well all day.
This makes me look very greasy and makes the skin look dull and darker. I wish it wouldn't do that as it seems to work quite well for the health of my skin when used alongside the serum.
Comments about pure light spf50:
I use this during the day over the pure light serum. It's crazy how fast you see a difference, I don't know if anything has made my skin noticeably brighter this quickly before. The built in SPF50 is an added bonus and no nice to be able to skip a step in the morning with this combo.
I've just started on this product, so far, I'm loving it. After using Dynamic Skin Recovery for many years I moved to a more tropical climate... my skin didn't like it. All of a sudden my skin went from normal to oily and I started breaking out, something I had never experienced before. Of course I ran to the closest Dermalogica store. The therapist suggest Breakout Control (applied under moisturizer) and switched me from Dynamic Skin Recovery to Pure Light as she said it's less oily and will also help with sun damage, especially as I'm now exposed to year round sunlight over here. My only concern is that I'm reading that it "helps regulate melanin production." Well, I'm African - e.g. a black person, and I would like to stay that way - i.e. I like my melanin just the way it is. Please confirm that this product will not make me go lighter, it's not some sort of "skin lightening" type cream. I LOVE that my breakout is now coming under control since starting this new regiment. I just don't want to all of a sudden have a lighter face while the rest of my body remains dark.
I have been using dermalogica products for many years- they are by far stellar products but I am sad to say that this product didn't make the cut. Hopefully they bring back the old pure light with spf 30 which was wonderful for my skin, moisturized my skin with a matte porcelain finish, was never drying but just enough. This new updated version is too greasy, even when blotting my face with tissues several times throughout the day- i've read that from several other reviews as well, and, I think it makes my face darker! Dermalogica is a smart company that is always innovating and researching to provide their customers with the best, however in this case i have to disagree and hope that they are smart enough to listen to their loyal customers and bring back the old chromawhite.
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 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.
