Product Review: Dermalogica Daylight Defense Kit!

As we know (hopefully the memo has reached you by now), sunscreen is the best preventative measure for premature aging, and we all want to keep our youthful looks so it’s recommended that we wear sunscreen all over to protect us from harmful sun rays. I know I’ve made this a personal resolution of mine for 2012, to lather my body with some lovely zinc oxide sunscreen, and I’m welcoming this newest addition to my beauty regime, the Dermalogica Daylight Defence Kit. This handy kit has everything you need to keep you protected from the sun.

The kit comes in a handy zip bag so you can take it with you to the beach, and I took it with me on a recent beach adventure. It’s not just for the beach though, this top-to-toe kit is perfect for everyday use.

Dermalogica’s Multi-Vitamin Body Block SPF 20 protects and moisturises, doesn’t feel dry on my skin after a few hours outside, and being someone with sensitive skin, I find it non-irritating, plus it has a pleasant smell. Then again, I love the smell of sunscreen so I am probably not hard to please. The best part is that I don’t have to use a lot it for it to protect all over, and it doesn’t leave any residue or white marks. Good for when in bikini and not wanting to look like a pasty white mess.

The Solar Shield comes in a chapstick format, but a little chunkier in size, because it’s meant for your ears and nose too. Whilst this is great for mult-tasking, I don’t think I would use this on my ears, nose, then lip- particularly in that order! But I could always use my finger to apply the sunscreen in those spots that are notoriously bad for getting burnt. It’s also very water resistant for up to 80 minutes and you can easily apply it whenever and wherever. It tastes a lot better than applying the sun block on your lips that’s for sure, not that you’re supposed to eat your sunscreen, that could be an idea for a new product on the market, edible sunscreen, maybe it would make people wear it!

The Solar Defence Booster in SPF 30 can be mixed with your foundation or moisturiser for an extra boost of sun protection for your face. When mixed with foundation, it gives extra coverage without showing white or feeling greasy. You can even use this prod to replace your make-up primer or mix it with your favourite tinted moisturiser, so you’re still looking tan-o-riffic whilst being UV conscious, how good is that for a dynamic combination! This product retails for $63 for 30ml, though it will last you for months.

Got this? The following product can help…

And if you’ve been having a wild summer and spending a little too long at the beach, you might a little fixer upperer, that comes in the form of the Dermalogica After Sun Repair. The best part is that it contains no artificial fragrance or colour, it’s a gel like substance that you slather over the tender spots. Fortunately I haven’t had to use it, but I can imagine the gel feeling cool and refreshing your skin, good for reducing redness and repair of any UV damage to the skin.

And with new sunscreen technology that won’t clog pores, won’t cause irritation (redness and burning) and won’t feel chalky or greasy, it’s much easier to comfortably make sunscreens a part of your daily skin care regime. You will be smug knowing that you won’t have lizard skin in the future!
