Good product, bad package

During the flights the cream comes out of the bottle. And it is a waste of money especially for those who fly a lot. However I do like the product. It is a shame I lose about 5% of it every time I fly.

I wanted a lightweight sunscreen to apply in the mornings and there is no residue left behind with this! I use it as my moisturizer for daytime and it not only leaves my skin feeling hydrated but I can feel confident knowing that I am protecting myself against sun damage with SPF 50. The sun in SoCal is so intense and I distribute it evenly throughout my face, neck and ears. Love this!

Must have

This is the ONLY sunscreen that I have been able to continuously use on my face without a breakout. I have tried many 'face' sunscreens and I still end up with pimples, but the Solar Defense Booster does not irritate my skin or clog my pores. I love that I can wear it alone or mixed with my foundation. I have recommended this product and will continue to do so.

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.

I have struggled to find a product the protects my skin from the sun but doesn't leave it feeling layered or cause a lot of breakouts. I have been using this product since I have tried the sample. It doesn't cause breakouts at all or feel like a layer of icing is on your face and it protected my skin from the sun for long hours. The reason for not giving it 5 stars is because with it doesn't do it's job when water gets on it even with just a slight bit of rain on my face and it does leave my skin oily even while using matt moisturizer with it.

What is the purpose of this product? If I have to also use a moisturizer with it, doesn't it make more sense to purchase a moisturizer with an SPF?

PJ

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can layer this SPF on top of your favorite moisturizer. We also have products that are SPF and moisturizer in one. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

If I mix the SPF 50 with my daily moisturiser as you suggest, can I then apply foundation over the top?

K

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, you an apply foundation on top of that mixture. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Hello, I have used the Solar defence booster spf 50 and it is a great product undoubtedly. I however, found it greasy. Is there an alternative for the sunscreen that you can suggest and it is possible that i receive a tester of the non- greasy spf before i buy the product.

Nupur

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Try Oil Free Matte SPF 30 during the day instead. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Exactly how much of this do you mix with moisturizer?

p

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Mix equal parts of SPF and moisturizer. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Does this product leave a "white caste" on darker skin tones?

Dana

Hi Dana, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It does not. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Cam this be used around the eye area?

Louise

Hello Louise, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Please try Total Eye Care SPF 15 for the eyes. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I have roseaca on my cheeks, would this product be recommended for sensitive skin/roseaca?

Rosie

Hello Rosie, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. If you have sensitive skin, you may prefer Super Sensitive Shield SPF 30. Kind Regards, Bernadette

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

n

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, Bernadette

Should we use make up remover at night after apply?

Chriska

Hello Chriska, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can double cleanse at night for the cleanest skin. Kind Regards, Bernadette

what exactly is the sunscreen? is it a chemical sunscreen or a barrier sunscreen like Zinc or titanium?

Pat

Hi Pat, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. The product contains chemical sunscreen: Avobenzone, Octinoxate. UV Smart Booster Technology: an encapsulated complex of antioxidant vitamins C and E; scavenges UV-induced free radicals while enhancing photoprotection.
