Comments about solar defense booster spf50:

I use this product mixed in with my moisturizer. I use the same moisturizer for the day and night. If its a sunny day and I will be outdoors I mix a little bit of this product into my moisturizer and apply to my skin. on days when I am working and in doors all day I do not use the block. It gives me options when to use sun block.

  • Q:

    hello! If my moisturiser is already spf50, does applying this beforehand give extra protection? or is it not really necessary unless extreme sun exposure?

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. The FDA approves SPF at a maximum of 50. Dermatologists recommend applying a tablespoon of SPF to the face and neck. Your best bet is to reapply throughout the day for the best protection. Rather than layering.

      Kind Regards,

      A:

      Hello Vanessa,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This is a chemical sunscreen, so it will not leave a chalky residue on the skin. However, if your skin is very sensitive, it may not be ideal. For sensitive skin, we offer Super Sensitive Shield SPF 30.

      Kind Regards,
      Bernadette

      Hi Briana,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can and should mix Solar Defense Booster SPF with your favorite moisturizer. If you are dry, you might prefer to mix it with Skin Smoothing Cream or Intensive Moisture Balance.

  • Q:

    Hello, please can you advise how the expiry date on Dermalogica's Solar Defence Booster SPF50 works? I have just bought this product and the expiry date on the bottom of the bottle says 'Best used before 06/2017'. When I queried this with the therapist I bought it from, she said that as long as you open a Dermalogica product before the expiry date, you need to finish it before the '24M' or '12M' stated on the product. I cannot see either 24M or 12M anywhere on this product and am worried that it will become ineffective after 06/2017 - I am unlikely to finish it before then. Other Dermalogica products do have this 24M or 12M but it appears this Solar Defence Booster doesn't. Kindly clarify the situation please?
    Asked on 3/31/2017 by Clare

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Dear Clare,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Products containing SPF and Acne actives will have an expiration date on the bottle. Once the product reaches the date stamped on the packaging it should no longer be used, otherwise the shelf life for unopened products is about 2-3 years.

      All other products have an open jar symbol, which is the diagram drawing of a jar with lid and a number in the jar. Most commonly used is 24 M. This means that once opened, the product may be used up to 24 months. This does not mean however that the product may not have changed in smell, texture or even efficacy it only means that it is SAFE to use based on stability data which differs from product to product but in the majority of cases is 24-36 months.

      We hope this addresses your concerns.

      Thanks for your inquiry and interest in Dermalogica.

      Sincerely,
      Bernadette
