        Comments about Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF 50:

        My skin is very dry and sensitive, so I am very particular about my moisturizers. The current one I'm using does not offer any SPF protection. Being able to add this product to my current moisturizer and getting 50 SPF protection is wonderful. The scent is very light and natural. The only downside is that it's expensive, which is why I couldn't offer 5 stars. If it works, it's worth the additional cost.

          I bought it by reading its cover. I just hope it really protects me a wing the sun. Using it is easy that's what I love about it. But haven't really seen how good it really protects my skin.

            Comments about Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF 50:

            I've been searching for a perfect sunscreen for years and finally found it with this product. Typically, sunscreens smell funny and break me out.

            Solar Defense Booster SPF 50 is lightweight, unscented and it is the only sunscreen I've found that doesn't break me out. I LOVE the fact that I can mix it with my moisturizer, Dermalogica Active Moist, or wear it alone.

            I used to rely on the sunscreen in my makeup for SPF protection but it's not enough... Solar Defense Booster SPF 50 gives me the protection I need to ensure I age like a fine wine.

            I highly recommend this product!

              I mix this with the primer which makes a lightweight moisturer/sunscreen/make-up. It's lightweight, full of great ingredients and effective. Use it every day

                  I used this product when I would be outside and wasn't wearing makeup that contained sunblock. I didn't like that I had to purchase this expensive sunblock just for my face. Plus, I begin getting clogged pores when I started using the Dermalogica line.

                      A:

                      Thank you for your inquiry. You should mix equal parts of moisturizer to Solar Defense Booster SPF50. For a normal application we recommend a pea size amount of product for face, neck and chest.
