As the days of summer are coming to an end and life is getting back to normal I want to stress to you the importance of continuing to use SPF! SPF is important all year long. I have been wearing the Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery with SPF 50 on my face day to day to keep my skin protected. I want to preface this review by explaining that I have combo/oily skin that sometimes leans to the dehydrated side.
“Help minimize skin-aging triggers with this medium-weight, emollient daily moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF50. Antioxidant White Tea, rich in polyphenols, inhibits lipid peroxide formation and helps neutralize free radicals (ROS), Advanced Glycation End-Products (AGEs) and Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs). Patented Oleosome encapsulation technology boosts sunscreen effectiveness for critical protection against UV rays, while a unique polypeptide helps encourage collagen-producing activities. Blends smoothly over skin to create a perfected finish. Formulated without artificial fragrances, colors or parabens.” – Dermalogica
It is really hard to find a moisturizer that has a sunscreen in it that I like. Especially one that has SPF protection as high as 50. Typically these strong SPFs leave a huge white cast on me (which is why I prefer to keep them separate from my foundation) but this one did not. I also thought that it would possibly not be great on my oilier skin because its claim of being emollient, but that also isn’t true. After application I could feel it on my skin but after about 10 minutes it felt like it had absorbed into my skin and wasn’t slick at all. My makeup application wasn’t affected at all by the application of Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery! Amazing.
