          I had always used another dermalogica lotion but chose to try this line of products since I have hyper pigmentation. I cannot say how effective it is with the hyper pigmentation yet since I just started using it for a week or so. It has made my skin appear more smooth and even. Also it absorbs quickly and I then apply my liquid foundation over it without any issues.

              As a 50 + woman with melasma skin protection is very important to me. I had stopped using this product for over a year. My skin became dry and creppy. Now that I began using the product it's moist and youthful clearing up the dark spots from melisma.

              Beware users with allergies!!!

              Comments about Dermalogica PowerBright TRx Pure Light SPF 50:

              The ingredients listed on this website are only INACTIVE ingredients. Luckily, I looked before I started to use the product! I have an allergy to avobenzone so I have to read ingredient lists VERY carefully. Once I realized this, I verified with the Dermalogica website and saw that there are two active ingredients not listed here.

              Outside of that, I can't make a positive or negative recommendation of this product. If you have allergies to certain ingredients, they may be found in this product.

                    I have acne combination skin. My skin cannot tolerate alcohol or menthol. Would this sunscreen work for me? I have tried Neutrogena however it makes me look greasy and makes me breakout. Hoping I can find a good spf moisturizer in dermalogica.

                      Thank you for your inquiry. The SPF factor reflects the UVB protection in a product. UVA protection is included, but does not have a system for measurement in the U.S. at this time. Anything listed as broad spectrum includes both UVA and UVB protection.

                      Thank you for your inquiry. We always recommend wearing a hat when dealing with hyperpigmentation. Sunscreen helps significantly, however some uv light will always get through and darken pigmentation.
