      Comments about Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF 50:

      Tried this on its own and mixed half and half with my Dermalogica moisturizer and didn't like it either way. It's heavy and sticky and as someone with pale skin who needs sunscreen ALL THE TIME I was disappointed to spend over $50 on this tiny bottle and dislike the product so much - esp since I generally LOVE Dermalogica products and use them daily. I returned it and opted for the Julep No Excuses gel SPF and although the SPF rating is a touch lower, I find the Julep product infinitely better on my skin and that it absorbs much better.

          Wow I am obsessed with this sunscreen. I came across this product because I asked an ulta employee what sunscreen she used and she said this one. Ther price tag made me nervous but her skin was perfect so I just decided to go for it. So happy I did! I have never been able to find a sunscreen that does not irritate my skin. Finally found this gem. My skin has become way less irritated/ less a ensitive since I started using this. I see improvements after using just 2 weeks.

              I have sensitive skin and this is the only sunscreen my skin truly tolerates. I've tried everything from drugstore to high end sunscreens and this one suits my skin type. It's also hydrating and doesn't have a tacky consistcy like many sunscreens which is an added bonus!

                    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!

                        Hello Aleks:

                        Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. We do not recommend that you use Solar Defense Booster under the eye area. If you are looking for an SPF for the eye area we recommend that you use Total Eye Care. It provides chemical free broad spectrum SPF 15 that smooths the eye area, reduces puffiness and dark circles.

                        Best Regards,

                        The Dermalogica Team

                        Thank you for your inquiry. For redness on your cheeks we recommend Ultra Calming Serum Concentrate and Super Sensitive Shield SPF30. Follow with Sheer Tint Redness Relief SPF20 to counter act redness.

                        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.
