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.

Lightweight SPF moisturizer that feels great

Very Light

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

I love the lightening effect, but a little greasy

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.

I love this moisturizer

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.

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.

Hi, I am an Asian from Singapore. I have hyperpigmentation, uneven tone & sensitive, dry skin since I am yang. I would like to try some of the products. Could I use C 12 Pure Bright Serum & Power Bright TRX to improve my hyperpigmentation, & Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50 as my moisturizer and sunscreen to prevent the aging instead of Pure Light SPF 50? Would you please advise me on how to correctly use? Is it enough for hydrating? do I need any booster ? Now I am 50.

june

Hello June, If you are more on the dry side, you would most likely prefer Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50. Kind Regards, Bernadette
