Protect & Repair Your Skin With Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery

Moisture and sun protection. Those are the the main things we look for when choosing our everyday skincare products and rightfully so. Why? Because the combination of the two lead to the Holy Grail of youthful looking skin.
Admittedly, thanks to good genes and a healthy dose of melanin, I’ve had the luxury of not needing to pay too much attention to anti-aging technology for some time. But now that my carefree days are coming to an end, I’m always on the look-out for a product that meets my evolving skincare needs. Which is why I was thrilled to find Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50.
Here’s my quick review.

Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery Product Claims

Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery is a medium-weight daily moisturizer and its newer formula accelerates the product’s SPF from 30 to 50 while using 50% less chemical sunscreen agents. In addition to providing sun protection, it hydrates skin, reduces hyper-pigmentation, visibly firms by stimulating collagen synthesis and regulating collagen degradation.


My Experience

In a word, I love the Dynamic Skin Recovery. It feels good on my skin, has fast absorption and unlike some other high-SPF moisturizers, it doesn’t leave a white cast on my face. This is super important because I hate looking ghost-like when I’m trying to be cute.

I also really appreciate the added benefit of fighting hyper-pigmentation. Thankfully, I didn’t suffer from pronounced acne when I was younger, but any small breakout has the potential to leave a scar on my sensitive skin. Not fun.

Lastly and most importantly, at the end of the day, my skin still feels supple as though I had recently applied moisturizer. In my experience, this is a rarity. That’s that collagen stimulation at work!

The only minor drawback that I experienced was a slight tingling in my upper cheek area when I first began using it but this disappeared after a few applications. Full disclosure, my upper cheeks are notoriously sensitive. I have no idea why.


In Summary

I highly recommend the Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50. It’s a 10 out of 10. It’s lightweight, provides excellent moisture, has a pleasant fragrance, and sun protection.


Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50 retails for $79 for 1.7 oz and is available here. There are two additional sizes, 0.4 oz for $23.50 and 3.4 oz for $125.
