SPF moisturizer to help combat triggers that lead to skin aging. Achieve absolute hydration and help defend against the internal and external causes of skin aging with this medium-weight, emollient daily moisturizer with broad spectrum SPF 50. A patented polypeptide combined with glucosamine and soy helps stimulate collagen synthesis, enhances the skin's natural ability to fight skin-aging free radicals (reactive oxygen species) and helps prevent the signs of aging caused by sugar reacting with proteins in skin (AGEs). White tea polyphenols help regulate the formation of collagen-degrading MMPs brought on by UV rays while tripeptides, yeast extract and phytoestrogens help enhance skin firmness. Advanced sunscreen technology provides critical protection from daylight exposure, yet blends smoothly into skin to create a perfected finish. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colors.

We recommend that first-time Dermalogica users visit an authorized skin treatment professional for a client consultation in an ULTA store.

After cleansing and toning, apply a generous amount to face and neck, preferably 30 minutes prior to sun exposure.

Precautions: No matter the weather, shield your skin with SPF daily to protect against skin-aging environmental assault.

    I have been through several bottles of this product as it is the last piece of this line of products I use every morning in my beauty routine. I had a facial in Ulta and she was amazed at how great my skin looked so this brand really does work. You need to invest in this line I promise you.

            I purchased and used this product last weekend, and prior to my facial this Monday.
            I told my esthetician that I didn't like how it felt on my skin, then she said to try it again after my facial. I've used it three days since and still feel it is unpleasant--it feels as if it's drying. Could it be the SPF? Love my other Dermalogica products.

                I tried it because every facial sunblock was white on my skin, including the "clear" ones. I need at least a spf 50 every day, but most moisturizers don't have that level. I'm allergic to scent and have very sensitive skin. I'm very happy that it hasn't caused any issues. I'll buy it again!

                  • Q:

                    Can this product be used over or under the clearing mattifier? I'd like to try the mattifier on a couple areas in my t zone that get congested. But I need a decent anti-aging moisturizer as my skin is getting dryer now that I'm past 35! I used to be incredibly oily, now only in my t zone when it's hot.
