Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF50

Dermalogica, as you know is one of my favorite skincare brands.  When the opportunity for me to review their Solar Defense Booster SPF50, I happily obliged, especially since the weather started to warm up, which meant I’d be subjected to more sun exposure.

The Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF50 allows you to easily add both UVA and UVB defense to your skincare and beauty routines. This broad spectrum sunscreen is suitable for all skin conditions.

My Thoughts       

The Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF50 has quickly become a staple in my daily skincare and beauty regimens.  It’s easy to use and apply. Unlike most SPF products I’ve used, it doesn’t leave an ashy-looking, white cast on my skin.  It’s lightweight, and absorbs quickly.  After applying the Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF50 my skin is well hydrated, non-sticky, nor greasy. The product comes in simple packaging that is small and light enough to carry around in my purse, and is perfect for traveling.   Needless to say, I will be taking this along with me on my upcoming beach vacation at the end of August.

I did notice, however, that if I used too much of the Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF50 my skin would look extremely oily.  Just be mindful of that when you apply it.  Otherwise, using the right amount (you don’t need a lot to cover your face), it works and looks fine.

  1. This sounds great! I've been on the search for a product that I could make into a tinted moisturizer. SP50 is great too! Usually I see only SP30. Nice review! Even though its a bit pricey, seems like a little goes a long way which makes it worth it in the end.

  2. I do love some Dermalogica. I can totally see how it would be greasy if too much was used. But I do like that its not ashy or a ghostly film when applied like other sunscreens. Great post girl, I think I need to check this out.

  3. There is a matte version of this and it is pretty awesome, I am a huge Dermalogica user for myself and on my pro kit.

  4. I like the idea of boosting your products with this although I am not sure how much is actually enough!
