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.

Very Light

By 

from Jacksonville, Fl

Comments about pure light spf50:

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

By 

from Australia

Comments about pure light spf50:

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

By

Comments about pure light spf50:

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

By 

from California

Comments about pure light spf50:

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

By 

from San Jose

Comments about pure light spf50:

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

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about pure light spf50:

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.

Absolutely Fabulous!

By 

from Florida

Comments about pure light spf50:

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.

Bring back the old pure light! so dias appointed

By 

from Greece

Comments about pure light spf50:

I have been using dermalogica products for many years- they are by far stellar products but I am sad to say that this product didn't make the cut. Hopefully they bring back the old pure light with spf 30 which was wonderful for my skin, moisturized my skin with a matte porcelain finish, was never drying but just enough. This new updated version is too greasy, even when blotting my face with tissues several times throughout the day- i've read that from several other reviews as well, and, I think it makes my face darker! Dermalogica is a smart company that is always innovating and researching to provide their customers with the best, however in this case i have to disagree and hope that they are smart enough to listen to their loyal customers and bring back the old chromawhite.

  • Q:

    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!

    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.
