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.

Brighter skin, without compromise.

Brown spots, discoloration and uneven skin tone are all signs of hyperpigmentation, the treatment of which is a multi-faceted process.

Product has a shine at the beginning of application, but dries very quickly before applying makeup. All in all, it does not feel like I am wearing moisturizer.

Worth the price tag

I was a little skeptical before trying this product. I've tried lots of different products for my pigmentation before this one, and I have really sensitive skin so I was apprehensive. I decided to bite the bullet and try the whole lot (serum, day cream and night cream) and I haven't looked back. While they are pretty expensive I've noticed my skin looks so much healthier and I'm really happy. I'll definitey stay on this product line. While I wish they didn't cost so much, you do get a lot out of each tube and I'm convincing myself I'm investing in the health of my skin....

I would buy this if they took out the lavender

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

true

I love the lightening effect, but a little greasy

4

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.

Will not buy it again. Extremely greasy

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.

Hi there, Dermalogica is the only set of products that I get along with. Can I use this product on the rest of my body not just my face as a moisturiser and sun protectant as I can't find anything else that doesn't react with my skin. If you don't recommend I use this on my body is there anything other of your products you would recommend. Thank you Maddie

Bernadette

Hello, I bought the whole kit and seems to work very well for dark spots but my skin is also very dry and neither the day / night power bright creams seems to be enough to keep it well moisturised. I've been using age smart both super rich repair and dynamic skin recovery and I like them better, but they don't seem with the dark spots. Which combination can I use to solve this problem?

room1007

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Bio Lumin C Serum as a brightening serum morning and night. Follow with Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50 during the day and Super Rich Repair at night. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Can you use this under the eyes? Will it cause Milia?

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. For the under eye area, please try Total Eye Care SPF 15. Kind Regards, Bernadette

If I use this product when sunbathing on holiday do I still need to use a sunscreen

Maggie1

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Protection 50 Sport SPF 50 for the face and body. Kind Regards, Bernadette

As this product has an SPF50 rating can I I use it as a facial sun cream when on holiday if I don't get my face wet (realise it is not waterproof) or should I use sunscreen as well? Also what UVA rating is it.

Hello, I have acne scars around my cheeks and chin with very little active acne still around. My scars are quite pink and I was wondering if this moisturiser would help fade them and aid in the recovery process? Are there any other products you would recommend for these sorts of acne scars? Thanks!
