One of the first things I noticed about the Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery was the packaging. While it may just appear to be an ordinary silver package I found it really awesome that when you flipped it over to the back there was a security seal that you had to peal off. I, personally, like knowing that there is NO way that anyone could have tampered with my package from the time that it was put in that box until the time that I received it. I have never looked at their products in stores so I don’t know if the on-shelves versions of these have this feature but I was glad to note that my review copy did!
The Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery claims to help fight against the aspect of the sun that cause skin-aging. It does this by combining SPF with other ingredients that while fighting the sun’s UV’s also stimulate collagen to be produced. A bonus to this product is the amount of SPF that is contained in it, 50. Most facial products that include SPF I find tend to have small amounts and I never understood why as my face sits in the sun more than most other parts of me. Having a product that I can layer underneath my products, or that I can wear on it’s own, with a much larger amount of SPF makes me happy.
As you can see the Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery comes in a nice sturdy cylinder bottle, it also looks to be a good size. It actually is 1.7 ounces which I feel is a good size for the price. I also like the fact that this isn’t a typical sunscreen bottle that is super flimsy, I like that this has a little bit more weight and thickness to it.
Another feature that I’m loving about the Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery is the nozzle. I have found that the nozzle for the Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery is designed in such a way to keep the product from caking into the opening. That is one of my biggest complaints when it comes to items like sunscreens, the fact that the product will get caught in the opening and get crusty. With a nozzle like this one, I haven’t had that problem at all.
The Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery lotion itself looks and feels just like any other sunscreen. The lotion is a semi-thick white lotion that goes on clear when applied to the skin, similar to sunscreen. The scent of the lotion is also very similar to sunscreen, actually just like sunscreen, so if you’re use to wearing sunscreen you won’t find this off putting at all.
Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery goes on super smooth and leaves the skin feeling very soft. As you can see from the image above, once the lotion is applied the skin gets a drastically improved appearance. Overall, I thought this was a great product and I have been using it everyday that I have spend anytime outside since I received the product. I will for sure be purchasing more of this once I run out, even with the $65 price tag it’s worth it! You can order yours by clicking here.
