Not for sensitive skin girls
Not for sensitive typesThere is a lot to like about this sunscreen - it goes on nicely, doesn’t have a white cast, and (in my experience) sits well over serums and under makeup. The issue I found, however, was that my skin tingled quite a bit upon application and went quite red. I did continue using it and found that this effect lessened a little after about a week, downgrading to a slight tingle and a slight flush, but...Read More
WowThis is so good for mixing in with anything like moisturizer, and best of all it is so lightweight and non irritating.
Unbelievable!This sunscreen was fantastic and mixed well with my other moisturisers as a booster. It was great protection and surprisingly not heavy or oily. The price was great and you don't have to use much so it will last very long even if you use it daily. I always use Dermalogica products and this was the first time I used this product, I would definitely recommend to friends.
Not for sensitive skin girlsverified purchaserI recently purchased this to replace my current sunscreen as it was discontinued (also a Dermalogica sunscreen that I loved) and unfortunately I was left disappointed. The texture of this sunscreen felt yucky in my hands however upon applying it surprisingly sunk nicely into my skin and didn't leave a greasy look. Unfortunately at the same time as applying it I could immediately feel my skin feeli...Read More
Awesome to have on handI love this product . Very handy to mix with my aspect phytostat as it doesn't have sunscreen.
Notice age spots appear when i dont mix this in with my moisturisr.
I love it
Doesn't give that thick , greasy sunscreen appearance.
A must have.
Overall Not BadMy friend recommended this to me saying it was a must have, this is the first time I've gotten into the "sun-cream regime" I've never really worn it outside going to the beach so purchasing a high end sun-cream is a first for me.
I've been using it for about 2 months now, overall I do really like it. I have combination oily/dry skin, my T-zone is always oily and the sides of my face ...Read More
Not entirely sureGranted this is a nice sunscreen with fantastic SPF and good additional antioxidant ingredients, but I think for the price there are other sunscreens out there that do much the same.
Sunscreen without the downsides of sunscreen!verified purchaserI love this sunscreen, I mix it in with my daily moisturiser and also use it on my hands and delicate/sensitive areas.
Purchasing!Received a sample of this from a friend and I love it!
Will definitely be purchasing - the texture and feel is far more lightweight compared to the aspect 50+ sunscreen I have been using.
Excellent!Spent a very long time trialling products to find the best non-greasy but effective suncream for under my make up. This product absorbs quickly, doesn't leave any colour on the skin and provides 100% protection from sun and rays. I love it and apply it over my moisturiser but under my foundation. I get a lot of compliments on how youthful my skin looks and I believe its because I have protected ag...Read More
GreatI bought this after I had laser surgery for my hyper pigmentation and I gotta say I had no issues with it. My skin did not get irritated or clogged so that is basically a perfect SPF. Pleasant surprise. Can leave somewhat of a white cast if not careful.
SPF must haveA sun protection essential. I use this nearly every day in summer. You only need to use a little bit to cover the entire face, I wouldn't go a day without it! SPF is a MUST people!
amazingI love dermalogica and this is a great product. doesn't feel like normal sticky sunscreen, so good.
non-greasyA wonderfully non-greasy sunscreen that can be added to your moisturiser or foundation or used on it's own. I love it.
Simple add inI have oily skin, so I have struggled to find a lightweight sunscreen I can add in to my daily routine. This is the best I’ve found. So far I haven’t broken out and it sits well on my skin. There is some shine which I’d rather not have but for sunscreen and protection it’s manageable.
Great sunscreen for combo/oily skinLove this sunscreen. One of the only sunscreens that doesn't break out my combo/oily skin! It didn't feel like sunscreen going on, was hydrating yet kept shine at bay, and didn't exacerbate my breakouts like other formulas do, it's even soothing. My only negative is the price, I think it's pricey for a small bottle :( I know sunscreens tend to be a bit more expensive, but this is hard when in this...Read More
Huge fanI LOVE this product!!!
I put it on every morning and again throughout the day. It’s a small bottle but it seriously seems to be lasting forever.
I have acne prone skin but this actually makes my skin feel really good. I love the texture as well. It’s quite thin and gives the skin a good glow!
LoveI have struggled to find a sun protection for under my makeup that I liked. I decided to try this and I’m in love. A bit pricey but lasts for ages. Makeup sits perfect on top of it
A sun protection essentialA sun protection essential. I use this nearly every day in summer. You only need to use a little bit to cover the entire face.
love!easy to apply and always stay protected!
PerfectI just use this straight on my face and it’s usually all I do after my usual skincare, it feels and looks like your not wearing sunscreen at all. The only problem is mine doesn’t like being in that packaging I often get little leaks and the lid fills up with sunscreen, besides that it’s perfect.
I like to use this underneath makeupI like to use this underneath makeup, for sun protection that doesn't make my face look or feel greasy
Best sunscreenNormally I hate sunscreens on my face and never wear them only because I’ve found that they clog my pores. Not this one! This sunscreen has a high SPF and absorbs into my skin without leaving a white cast. I mix it in with the Active Moist when I apply to save me the extra step in my skin care routine and it works like a charm. I’d never use another sunscreen after wearing this one.
AmazingAbsolutely wonderful product. I've been using Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster since I was around 23 years old..10 years later and I'm still loving it! The texture is fabulous and leaves you with a subtle glow. The slight fragrance is also most welcome!
lightweight and strongThe texture is very lightweight and smooth. If you want to use it under the makeup, this texture is perfect. I will buy this again.
Light weightBest light weight sunscreen I have had so far. It didn't break me out and great under makeup. I have oily combination skin and it worked well for me.
Makeup Wearers RejoiceThis is one of the BEST sunscreens for makeup wearers. It doesn't contain physical sunscreens that cause a white cast, feel heavy and smell bad. Its very comfortable to wear.
A little goes a long way!Great Facial Sunscreen! I hate SPF on my face as it normally turns into an oily mess but this doesn't! The trick is don't use too much!
I sued to have sun pigmentI used to have a dark line under my nose that made me look like I had a moustache. After using this product the sun wasn't able to damage my skin anymore and the pigment went away. I have oily skin and love this product
not for meused it a couple of times, but i feel this sunscreen is not for me. if i wear it under makeup, my makeup application does not turns out to be very smooth. i have dry skin .
GoodThe best non-greasy spf 50 moisturiser, will definitely purchase again
Great sunscreen for daily useI really like this sunscreen for using daily under my makeup. I only use a small amount and it goes far.
Not too oily and dries quickly, unless it is super hot, then I need to give my skin a chance to cool down first.
Have even got my husband on to using it.
Only con is the price - I wish they could do it in a bigger, more cost effective bottle.
Amazing SunscreenLove, love, love this sunscreen. I wear it everyday under my make up and it dissapears and doesn't leave a greasy finish. Yes, it is a bit pricey but worth every penny- I mix it with my primer a small drop goes a long way. My skin has never been better since using it- couldn't recommend more. My skin is dry/combination and does get oily toward the end of the day so this was perfect as it leaves an...Read More
Too scented.Got this as a sample a while back with my order! Went on nicely with no white cast and no greasiness. The only downside is that it has way too many essential oils which is not necessary at all! Didn’t like the scent and got a bit of a reaction to it. Also very pricey, much better sunscreens with better ingredients for a much lesser price tag.
Great sun protectionI've been wearing this daily and while it defintely is 50+ protection and doesn't really need reapplication for day to day activities I do have one major fault with it. When I sweat and this sunscreen mixes with my sweat it makes its way into my eyes and stings like hell, I think it's due to the way it sits on the skin as I've never had another sunscreen do this before. I might try applying it bel...Read More
Expensive for a sunscreenThis product is good but it’s very expensive for such a small quantity of sunscreen. There are better value products I think you could use. I do like that it’s lightweight and sits under makeup well, and has a high SPF.
Perfect for QueenslandersEverything EXCEPT THIS slides off my face in Queensland, or it just becomes a hot sticky mess. I have combination skin, and this seems to stay on, protect me and act as a great bass to my foundation that I apply over this daily.
Will continue to buy, as I feel very confident that it is doing the job!
Best for sensitive skinI love this sunscreen, I use it everyday. I have very sensitive and fair skin and this does not irritate my skin at all or break me out.
Not great for oily skin!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.
ReactionI 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 everydayLet 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!

Makeup Lovers SunscreenThis 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 steepPros:
- 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 sun...Read More
good spfbest 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 baseThis 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!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!!!This is fantastic, it isn’t heavy or greasy, does not feel like you a wearing spf, would 100% recommend this product
Best sun creamThe 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 usedThis 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 productAbsolutely 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 productAs 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!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 p...Read More
All time favourite sun blocker for daily useI 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 ...Read More
Great solar defenseI 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!This stuff is great and so important for skin health. I use it daily
It's magicI 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 ...Read More
love this productI 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
