    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.

            You may want to apply to each section of the face separately because, it's a little thick.

              Great prodcut, only sunscreen I have used that does not break out my combination acne/blackhead prone 41 year old skin. Yes...Dermalogica products are expensive but they last a long time and are of the highest quality!

                This sunscreen is great for those with moderately dry skin. It can contribute to breakouts if you don't wash it off at night. Skin looks nice after application--dewy and soft looking.

                  Comments about Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF 50:

                  I've tried many many MANY sunscreens, and they all leave my skin feeling either dried out or overly greasy. I've even tried a range of korean brands, but they usually leave a white film and completely dry out my skin. This Dermalogica sunscreen is not only lightweight, but it also leaves my skin feeling refreshed and hydrated. I absolutely ADORE this product. It's also spf 50, which is great if you're looking for extra protection! The only con is that the price is fairly steep for the amount of product.

                  This sunblock is the most lightweight non-greasy sunblock I have ever used. I use it under my makeup and it does not effect the coverage or longevity of wear. I would have given it more stars if I could. The only problem is it is so expensive for the amount you receive I cannot justify using it all over my body. It is a premium product at a premium price though.

                    This is a great product. I have received several good sized sample moisturizers from Ulta w/o sunscreens. I spotted this product and decided to give it a try. I use a retinol product at night so a daytime moisturizer with SPF is a must. Now I am able to use these samples and no worries about sun burn...love it!

                        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.
