Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF50 by Dermalogica


Keeping skin protected from UVA and UVB rays is the key to maintaining a youthful appearance. The sun’s rays deplete collagen, create hyperpigmentation, and lead to a host of other undesirable skin effects. Keep your skin safe from the visible signs of aging with Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF 50.


Key benefits:


  • Lightweight, non-greasy formula sinks in instantly to protect skin without looking or feeling like a classic sunscreen.
  • Broad-spectrum protection shields skin from both UVA and UVB ray damage.
  • Oleosome technology helps support the function of SPF, helping it work better to protect your skin.
  • Packed with antioxidants to bolster environmental protection.
  • PETA-accredited, cruelty-free.


Key ingredients:


  • Avobenzone (3.0%) and Octinoxate (7.5%) provide broad-spectrum sun protection.
  • Safflower Oleosomes surround sunscreen molecules to help them better penetrate the skin and increase the effectiveness of sunscreen.
  • Grapeseed Extract, Melissa Leaf Extract, and Vitamin E calm and provide antioxidant protection against environmental damage.
  • Allantoin, a soothing ingredient commonly used in medical preparations to treat irritation and inflammation, both calms skin and locks moisture into the skin’s surface.


How to use:


  • Apply a grape-sized amount to face and neck after moisturiser. Can be worn beneath makeup or on its own.
  • If planning on being in direct sun for an extended period of time, reapply every 2 hours. Also reapply after being in water or profuse sweating.


Who is Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF 50 for?

This product is suitable for all ages, genders, and skin types. Only those with severely oily skin may want to look for an oil-free option.


Why does sunscreen need to be reapplied?

Sunscreen molecules break down quickly in the sun, especially when exposed to moisture, so protection needs to be reapplied every 2 hours or after swimming. When you’re infrequently exposed to direct sun and not sweating or in contact with water, reapplication isn’t necessary. Ensure sunscreen is properly reapplied when spending extended periods of time outdoors.

Not great for oily skin! - 15-11-2018 by

A friend recommended this moisturiser and had only good things to say about it. I have combination/oily skin and found this product exacerbated the oiliness and make me feel like really sweaty. It may be the SPF in it, but I did not enjoy the product at all.

Reaction - 16-10-2018 by

I really wanted to love this product but unfortunately I had an allergic reaction and ended up with a red rash on my face. Luckily I love most other dermalogica products. Disappointed in this one.

Perfect sunscreen for everyday - 04-10-2018 by

Let me start by saying I hate conventional sunscreen! But I understand its importance for everyday skin protection so I decided to use this product after receiving a sample.
I was incredibly impressed and I will be purchasing.

Lightweight, and can be used alone or easily mixed into other products
Good under makeup
SPF 50 - good protection!
Non greasy

Expensive for a sunscreen but if used sparingly can last a long time!

Makeup Lovers Sunscreen - 04-10-2018 by

This is one of the BEST sunscreens for makeup wearers. It doesn't contain physical sunscreens that cause a white cast, feel heavy and small bad. Its very comfortable to wear.

Good but price is steep - 26-09-2018 by

- doesn’t leave white cast finish
- very light and doesn’t feel oily or sticky for all skin types
- perfect to wear under makeup due to light texture

- Price is steep for 50ml
- only last less than 6 months if wear everyday

Overall, it’s a great sunscreen and perfect to wear under makeup however I wouldn’t purchase this sunscreen due to steep price and there are other sunscreens with better quantity & quality with reasonable price.

good spf - 18-09-2018 by

best SPF, i get burnt really easily and since using this my skin has never felt so protected. i use this everyday, under my makeup or by itself and it doesn't leave a residue on my skin.

The best sunscreen base - 22-08-2018 by

This is the best product to use either on its own as a sunscreen, or underneat makeup or even mixed in with a BB cream. While not overly thin in consitency, it goes on really nice and doesn't leave a greasy finish or any sort of scent.

Love it! - 04-07-2018 by

I love this product because I can add it to any of my moisturisers or tinted moisturisers as it’s light weight and not greasy. I don’t break out like I would with normal spfs. I’ll definitely repurchase.

The best SPF!!! - 02-07-2018 by

This is fantastic, it isn’t heavy or greasy, does not feel like you a wearing spf, would 100% recommend this product

Best sun cream - 21-05-2018 by

The best sun cream I've found! Light not greasy, no white cast, not much smell and didn’t seem to break me out. Mixes into my foundation well too!

Best sunscreen I've used - 18-04-2018 by

This is by far the best sunscreen I've used! It felt so light weight and blended into my skin perfectly. It didn't feel oily/greasy and didn't leave any white cast on my face. Also, it smells amazing and didn't irritate my skin.

Excellent product - 03-04-2018 by

Absolutely fantastic product I have been usuing it for quite some time now and use it daily. I love that you can add it into any product without the heavy greasy feeling you get with wearing other SPF products or sunscreen.

My skin is naturally quite oily and I have no issues with this product whatsoever, will continue to buy, highly recommend!!

Great product - 27-03-2018 by

As an oily skin chick, I'm so cautious about sunscreens. I don't want them to clog my pores or ruin my makeup but I want spf. This product delivered. I had a sample size and it lasted 4 days so little product goes a long way. It's sheer and beautiful base without smelling like sunscreen or being too thick. Great product

Love it! - 19-02-2018 by

I hate puting sunscreen on my face. It always leaves my skin feeling oily - even when I put makeup on over it - and as someone who has oily skin to begin with that isn't the best thing. This product however doesn't do that.

I absolutely love this product. It can be used on it's own or mixed in with other moisturisers, primers, or foundation without altering those products and still protects you from the sun.

This also leaves your skin feeling amazing which is an added bonus. I highly recommend this to anyone.

All time favourite sun blocker for daily use - 22-11-2017 by

I have Asian skin, that's normal to dry and I want to ensure my skin is protected from the sun every day to avoid getting sun damage. I love this product and I have been using it over my moisturiser every day for the past decade (or even longer). It's light weight, easily absorbed and doesn't go funny with whichever skin care you use. It's not greasy and doesn't sting your eyes like some other brands' if you get sweaty.

Great solar defense - 13-10-2016 by

I use it every day after my moisturiser and so far, it's been good. It doesn't make me break out or make my skin feel oily or leave any white residue. My only complaint is that it doesn't last long and it's expensive. I wish I could afford it more often.

Absolute necessity! - 10-02-2016 by

This stuff is great and so important for skin health. I use it daily

It's magic - 18-08-2014 by

I am very fair and cannot leave the house without sunblock on. Although it's a pain, it's better than the alternative.

I have been using solar defense booster for quite a while now and love it. I never get burnt and as it's a booster, I can use one day/night moisturiser and add the sunblock for day only.

It's quite a small bottle, but you don't need much so it lasts for ages.

I think it's good value and haven't found a better option.

love this product - 26-07-2014 by

I have been using this brand for some time now. My face never gets sunburnt. It feels great when applied, I use it under my foundation each and every day. I would certainly recommend this product and brand in general to anyone who wants a quality product. It lasts me on aveerage 3 to 4 months, so in my view it is very good value for money.
Love it, love it, love it
