Yes I plan to use this product again

By 

from Nebraska

Comments about solar defense booster spf50:

I love this product. It is not greasy and blends well with either moisturizer or the liquid foundation. I have had skin cancer and it has taken a while to find a product that I like to put on my skin.

Great sun protection

By 

from USA

Comments about solar defense booster spf50:

I use this under my makeup for daily UV protection. At first it goes on a little oily but after s few minutes it really absorbs. I also play tennis and use this solely on my face for my sunscreen. It stays on perfectly even when sweating and doesn't break my skin out like most sunscreens.

Best Facial SPF that I have found.

By 

from MidWest

Comments about solar defense booster spf50:

I am a true outdoor-lover. I used to be that person working on their tan. Now I spend time protecting my skin from the damaging elements. I've used the Solar Defense Booster along with my moisturizer and am thrilled to say it does an excellent job of keeping sunburns at bay. I introduced my husband to it and he is now a big fan as well. It goes on without the greasiness some sunscreens have. It absorbs quickly and doesn't leave any tell-tale whiteness, Great product!

Comments about solar defense booster spf50:

I was able to use this after a dermalogica treatment. when I put it on, it felt a little liquidy… but it did not burn as other sunscreens sometimes do. It didn't absorb as quickly as I would have liked it too, but it protected me from the sun!

My skin is combination and sensitive. I am in love with this solar defense booster. It goes on creamy and light and quickly is absorbed into my skin. I use it with my primer and love that I dont have to worry about my skin all day!

Not afraid of the sun

By

Comments about solar defense booster spf50:

I love this SPF it doesn't feel greasy, It is very easily absorbed and it doesn't alter my make-up in any way. That is more than I can say about any SPF I have ever used. I can be in the sun all day long and not need to re-apply. Never get sunburned with this. I have started using it on my arms and chest as sparingly as possible.

Good protection

Comments about solar defense booster spf50:

I have been using this for several weeks now because I needed extra protection with the addition of retinol into my routine. I have been looking for a strong sunscreen that I could mix in with my moisturizer that would not be too oil-producing or clog my pores. I haven't noticed any increase in acne flares or sun irritation. It's been great!

Worked previously but not any more

Comments about solar defense booster spf50:

I have been using this product from past 4 months . In the beginning when I started using the product with Active moist I was quite happy with the result.It was a highly effective shield against sun but never made my skin oily. But from past one month the story has been different.This sun booster is making my face quite oily with or without Active Moist. I am not sure what has changed but I am little hesitant to apply this product on my face.I am now going to try pure light spf 50 and keeping my fingers crossed that would work for me.I recommended this to one to my friend and its still working wonderfully for her. So may be my skin is not accepting it any more. :(

  • Q:

    Does it need to be mixed with moisturizer or is it at all hydrating by itself?

    • A:

      Hello,

      Thank you for your question. We created Solar Defense Booster SPF 50 to boost your favorite moisturizers that do not have SPF. Please mix this with moisturizer or layer it on top of it.

      Kind Regards,
      The Dermalogica Team

  • Q:

    Thick consistency?: I bought one of these a few months ago from my regular Dermalogica spa/salon but have found myself rarely using it on account of needing some serious muscles to squeeze it out of the bottle - so much so that one morning I put a bit too much 'oomph' into it and the nozzle flew out, leaving me with a mess of product all over my bathroom basin! Is it typically this thick and hard to squeeze out, or is there perhaps something wrong with my bottle?

      Thank you for your email. The product should not be that hard to dispense. There may be a malfunction with the dropper opening of your container. Please exchange your product where you purchased it for another bottle. Also, if you could reply to us and share the name, size and batch code of your product we can notify our marketing team about this issue. Please contact us with any further questions.

  • Q:

    Is this product ok to use in sensitive skin?: I have sensitive, dehydrated skin. My daily moisturizer is "intensive moisture balance". I would like to use this spf with my moisturizer, but I am afraid it could be bad for my skin
    Asked on 5/26/2013 by carlota88 from edmonton

    • A:

      Yes! If you use this product there will be no need to use your intensive moisturizer. I use both the intensive moisturizer and active moist moisturizers during the summer months and especially throughout the winter to keep my skin hydrated. The Solar Defense will offer your skin enough moisture and protection that there is no need to apply anything else. Use your normal cleansing routine and simply apply the Solar Defense for the day. You will be happy with the results. I was and still am!

      Answered on 7/5/2013 by Keri from Upstate NY
    • A:

      Since your skin is sensitive, we suggest you try Super Sensitive Shield SPF30 (layered over Intensive Moisture Balance) instead of Solar Defense Booster SPF50.
