Most Helpful Positive Review Age Defense at its Best!
I was super excited to receive Dermalogica's Age Defense Kit from Bzz Agent to try out and review! I am a HUGE Dermalogica fan and being in my late 30's I'm always on the look out for great anti-aging products. This kit comes with three great anti-aging products the first one which happens to be my super favorite of the three is Dermalogica daily superfoliant. Basically it's a Resurfacing antipollution powder exfoliant. You shake some of the fine powder into your hands add a little water then smooth it over your entire face. It forms like a thin smooth mask that you rub into your skin until you feel the powder is all dissolved the. I left it for a few minutes. I fell in love with this product with first use!! It left my skin feeling velvety soft, ultra clean, and super smooth. My pores looked smaller and just all together better! I use this product a few times a week as I found if I use it daily my face becomes a little dry. But I will definitely be purchasing a larger one of this as it is a great product. Second product included is Dermalogica biolumin-c serum. Another impressive product, this serum is thin and dries down into skin quickly not sticky or tacky. It leaves my skin softer smoother and more even looking. Feels great when used after the daily superfoliant. Finally is the Dermalogica dynamic skin recovery a brad spectrum moisturizer with spf 50 already included. I'm definitely loving this moisturizer it's rich and melts into your skin quickly leaving behind a smooth baby soft surface. It has a nice light scent to it and when used as the last step of the three products works wonderfully. I am so happy I was introduced to these products as I definitely feel like they could be introduced into my everyday skin routine regularly. My skin has never looked or felt better. It's softer and smoother my fine lines are softened my skin is plumped. If your looking for a few great products to help combat the signs of aging I definitely recommend these three products!!! Dermalogica once agin doesn't disappoint.
Most Helpful Critical Review Nice refreshing kit
I am used to Dermalogica Age Defence Kit products, and I am not disappointed with this kit in terms of quality of the products.
On a personal note, i would say that I really liked the Superfoliant. It leaves the skin soft and clean. Although my preference goes with their Microfiliant which is thinner and softer for the skin. I would not use the Superfoliant on a daily basis.
Regarding the Biolumin C. I really liked the texture and the packaging. It is easy to use. You just need to get use to the tingling sensation. But vitamin C does that. The only thing is, and I can't swear it was caused by this product but I began to have bumps on my forehead and chin, and actually a bit everywhere on my face after few days of using this product. The thing is, there is not that much product in the kit that I was not able to correctly check if it was this serum that caused that to my skin. Just a precision, I have a pretty clear skin. Not too sensitive. Very little blemishes (mostly when I have my period). I would not buy this product full size.
Lastly, the Dynamic Skin Recovery. I did the job. Was a nice SPF50 cream. I like that it was hydrated and protected my skin at the same time. Like the rich and soft texture.
I would have loved for this kit to have a eye product, but to summum it is a nice kit that I had pleasure to discover. The quality is there.
Reviewed by 194 customers Love the way it makes my face feel but do not like the smell
Tj45 from Chicago, IL
The serum and the daily moisturizer goes on smoothly and is not heavy or oily. I am still on the fence about the polisher. I've used the polisher with the cleanser and without and I am not sure it does anything. The only downside of the product is its smell. I am happy that they don't use fragrance but it is very unpleasant to me and I may not buy the product because of that alone. I am glad that I bought the tester size.

My face is more sensitive than I thought and this was not for me
Great way to try a product
Senior citizen from Santa Rosa, Ca
I already loved the moisturizer but now love the other 2 products.
Tabitha from CA
I LOVE THIS COMBINATION! AMAZING RESULTS!
Perfect for my skin!!
Nana of 3 from Rock Hill, SC
I love these products and plan on buying them in the full size when these run low. A little goes a long way and my makeup goes on better now.
Juliette303 from State College
Returned . Not what I thought.
Good thing i got a sample, would not buy
JESSY from CA
I use this product in the morning before going out, when it fully dries after about an hr it starts to pill (with or without makeup, with makeup it pills even more). and now that we have to wear masks everywhere, this product pills too much. also it will sting a bit on the sensitive areas on my face, like if i just exfoliated, it will sting around my nose the next day. or if i have active acne it will sting and cause redness. GOOD THING I GOT A SAMPLE IN ANOTHER PROMOTION WITH ULTA! for the price i would have expected better, will definitely NOT buy. only gave three stars because it does feel like a good sunscreen, not tacky or oily, no white cast. maybe it just doesn't work for my skin.
I already have this item in my shopping cart AGAIN!
Amanda N from San Diego
I use these products almost everyday. The AGE smart dynamic skin recovery SPF 50 is my new favorite morning moisturizer. Don't get me started on the biolumin-c serum! The only reason I don't use the serum everyday is because I don't want it to run out. My skin tone has evened out so much since I started using these products!
size is ridiculously small for the price. A disappointment
Jay from OK
The product is great but the price is ridiculous. Also you don't get what you pay for because the bottle came more than half empty.
Yes I love the product
Rita from CA
I'm 56 years old and been through lots of radiation due to cancer so my skin is sensitive but this product works well for me, I love the C serum and the skin recovery moisturizer is wonderful due to my thin skin
Glowing soft skin
Lara from Phoenix Arizona
My skin feels more nourished and soft. The moisturizer with sunscreen is perfect for these sunny spring days.
Gym mom from Florida
For face and neck
My skin feels great
JB from Cedar Park, TX
I can already tell a difference.
not crazy about the new approach.
Gi from New York
I love all the products don't get me wrong they work great I just don't like the new approach on the skincare kits I feel like they turned them into more targeted treatments which is also good to have they should've added this in addition with the skin kits but to not have a cleanser, toner .. etc essential things you need in a skincare routine. For new clients that I see a lot of them either don't have a cleanser or don't have the proper one . I liked the old kits that had everything in them in order to start a client off .
Verdict out, but.....
JessieJess from Statesboro, GA
Okay so the verdict is out on this product still (Only been using for about 1.5 weeks), but I do think it's important to write a review based off of a couple of things:
1-amount of product in containers
I took off a star for amount of product in package. When I first opened the serum, I was saddened that about 1/4 of the container was empty. With the cost of these products, they need to be all the way full. I only use about 4-5 baby pea sized drops for my entire face so it will last a long time, but that's not the point.
I have a combination of beginning fine lines and wrinkles and hormonal acne. These products are gentle to use on my whole face and seem to treat all of my issues. That is a plus. Nothing stings or hurts when or after I use it, so that is also a plus.
I desperately need a facial and direction with a new face routine and products due to my changing skin, but during this time of quarantine, that is not an option. I decided to go ahead and try new products (which is why I got the travel size before committing to the full size) based off of friend reviews. I have 2 friends who are 5+ years older than me and have beautiful skin. Both have been using Dermalogica products for years and swear by them. Both have tried server lines of this brand and love them all for different reasons.
Wouldn't spend that kind of money again!
Tanialle from Fargo, ND
I was very disappointed with this. The products are vet very small will last maybe 2 weeks
The Age Defense Kit - a bit disappointing
Kim from Oklahoma
I think the sizes should be larger. I have used the Vitamin C serum and like it but can't use it more than twice weekly otherwise my face breaks out. I have used the Daily Superfoliant for more than 5 years and LOVE it! This is the first time I've used the SPF face cream - not sure I like it. It's very heavy and tends to make my face "sweaty."
Easy, effective step kit
Abbie from NYC
I absolutely love this 3 step skincare routine! It's simple to use and works wonders for healthy looking and great feeling skin. Spf & anti aging is a major benefit!!
Amazing Age Defense Kit!
Lainiie from Colorado
Deemalogica Age Defense Kit resulted in even better positive changes to my skin than I could have imagine. The Dailu Superfoliant is a definite must have product. I liked how it came out in a powder form and when mixed with water became a thick consistency exfoliant for my skin. The smell wasn't an overly pleasant smell, but the results were still worth it. My skin felt so much smoother and looked so much brighter.
The Vitamin C serum I used on my clean face out of the shower before the sunscreen/moisturizer. It had a nice aroma of vitamin c and wasn't to thick or sticky, it absorbed into my skin nicely and wore well under makeup. The Dynamic Skin Recovery sunscreen was just the right amount of moisture to my skin. A creamy lotion that blended we and wore amazing under my makeup too. After having used these products a few weeks I can tell a difference in my skin with it smoother, brighter and less breakouts!
A noticeable difference in my skin
Jen from Pennsylvania
After using this product for a few weeks, I began to see a noticeable difference in my skin. It began to have a smoother, softer appearance. My skin also appeared to have less fine lines around my eyes than before using it consistently. I am pleased with this product, and the results. I did not experience any irritation or redness.
Joma1024 from NJ
I was slightly skeptical about this Dermalogica Age Defense Set. The daily superfoliant took some getting used to and a little trial and error with the water/powder ratio but I did enjoy the way my skin felt after I would use it. I didn't see a significant change but I'm sure over time of consistent use I would. The serum was like most serums, however I felt as though I had to use a lot to get coverage where as with similar products "a little goes a long way". That being said, it wasn't sticky and absorbed nicely into the skin. My favorite part of this set is the lotion. I wasn't expecting that. Usually spf products like this are heavy and greasy and I do not like the way they feel on my skin. This wasn't like that at all. I thought it would be based on the consistency right out of the tube. It wasn't heavy or sticky. It absorbed perfectly into my skin without making me feel like I had something on my face. I would definitely use this regularly. All in all I would recommend this kit.
Great product quick results!
Jenkos from Allentown, Pa
This age defense product shows quick results, brightens up your skin, and smooths out the rough crowd eyes. It is a high quality product for the price.
Allifaith from Marion, Illinois
Absolutely adore this skincare collection, will definitely be purchasing when I run out, feels great on my face!
Best I've tried!
Jessilynn from Essex, MO
Dermalogica made me a believer with this kit. It's the first time I've tried anything from this brand. The superfoliant made my face so much smoother, and the brightening serum is the best I've used. I will definitely be buying a full size set! I can't believe I've wasted so much time and money on other products!
It helped hide my age!
Staci from Ada
I absolutely loved this sample! I will be buying the full sized set ASAP! My favorite part of this kit was the superfoliant. It helped my skin become so much smoother.
