    Comments about Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF 50:

    Was recommended this product by my facialist. It's so easy to blend right in with your daily moisturizer and does not affect the way my makeup applies. My skin is acne-prone & very oily. I haven't found this to make my skin greasy and the smell is great too (no beachy spf smell!). Doesn't break me out either so it's a win for me. A little pricey but cheaper than aging treatments or skin cancer!

    I am sad because I love this product but it makes my skin breakout. I didn't realize it had titanium dioxide in it and for some reason my skin does not like it.

          This is a great dermalogica product. I would always add it to clients moisturizer to help protect from the sun. Its always good to use a sun block.

              Living in Colorado and enjoying an active lifestyle I am always in search of a way to have more sun protection without necessarily wearing heavy sunscreen all day long. This blends perfectly with my daily moisturizer and is barely perceptible- feel great and helps me feel safer when I'm enjoying the outdoors.
