  • 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?
    Asked on 1/9/2015 by Merri from Geelong VIC 3220, Australia

    • A:

      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

    2 answers

    • 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.

      Answered on 6/19/2013 by DermalogicaSkinTherapist from Los Angeles
    • 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!
