Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50 Review & Coupon

I have to admit that, up until recently, I was not that diligent about daily sun protection.  If I was going to be out in the sun for a long period of time I would load up on sunscreen, but when it came to just daily tasks where I'd be indoors most of the time (work, grocery shopping, etc.), using sunscreen usually didn't take a huge precedence.  I know this is a really bad practice, so I've been trying to be more mindful of using sun protection even when I won't be outside for extended periods.  Luckily, I discovered the dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50 daily moisturizer at just the right time!

This medium-weight moisturizer contains an upgraded formula that accelerates the product's SPF from 30 to 50 while using 50% less chemical sunscreen agents, made possible by an advanced oleosome technology.  Oleosomes are naturally-occurring spheres of emollient oils and Vitamin E found in safflower seeds.  They deliver the active ingredients found in this sunscreen directly to the skin's surface and release them over time to ensure maximum benefits.  In addition to sun protection, the Dynamic Skin Recovery moisturizer also reduces hyperpigmentation, stimulates collagen synthesis, and regulates collagen degradation.

I've been using this as my morning moisturizer for a few weeks now and I love it!  It's described as medium-weight, but I find it to be quite lightweight, and it absorbs into my skin very quickly with no feeling of greasy residue.  The dispenser is an air-tight pump and it gives just enough product each time, so you don't have to worry about wasting any.  It has a very light scent, but I don't think it's anything that would overwhelm someone who was sensitive to scented products.

Bottom Line: I would highly recommend this moisturizer, not only does it work well with my oily/combo (but also sensitive) skin, but the SPF 50 is excellent protection.

  1. I'm about to start using this too, glad you liked it! I didn't used to be so consistent about using SPF but now that I'm in my 30s I'm little more obsessed with keeping my skin looking "fresh", haha. :)

    1. I used to shy away from moisturizers with SPF in them because they always seemed so thick and sticky, but this one is really nice. I think you'll enjoy it!

  2. Promo code (summer25) is saying "unknown"...bummer. Great deal & great products
