Dermalogica kindly sent us over a sample of their new Dermalogica Age Smart Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 and as the oldest female member of the team here at UnderTheChristmasTree, we asked Elaine to put it through its paces, this is what she had to say about it.
“I’m really ‘funny’ about what I put on my skin, as my wrinkles will attest, and anything which leaves my skin feeling greasy is an absolute no-no for me. Dermalogica have designed this medium-weight moisturiser for those, who like me, have a mature or prematurely-ageing skin and with the added bonus of an SPF50 I was delighted to give it a try.
After cleansing and toning my skin I applied a small amount, around the size of a pea, to both my face and neck, the moisturiser, which contains no artificial fragrance or colour, blended straight into my skin without leaving a greasy feel.
As this has been the hottest summer in the UK for a long time I felt the addition of the SPF50 was a bonus as this is something that wouldn’t have crossed my mind to apply before leaving home.
Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery contains a range of natural ingredients including antioxidant white tea and calming agent liquorice root as well as oleosomes – a new one for me so, after searching the internet, I discovered that these are oil capsules which are found naturally in various plants and seeds.
I noticed a difference in the feel of my skin straight away and I continue to use the Dermalogica Age Smart Dynamic Skin Recovery spf50 now. I certainly do feel a difference in my skin, it feels smoother, more hydrated and those pesky fine lines (OK wrinkles!) seem to be held at bay.
For any one, who like me, needs a little help with their skin I would certainly recommenced giving the Dermalogica Age Smart Dynamic Skin Recovery spf50 a try, though at around £60.70 it’s not cheap, but a little does go a long way. Will I continue to use this product ? Yes, I will, I really did feel that my skin benefitted from using it.”
Read what Dermalogica said about their Age Smart Dynamic Skin Recovery spf50 moisturiser below.
You can’t improve on perfection – or so the saying goes. However, modern technology is a wonderful thing and global skincare experts, Dermalogica have harnessed it to enhance and optimise the benefits of one of its top-selling moisturisers.
CoolBrand Dermalogica has utilised oleosome technology to optimise the multiple benefits of the peptide-powered Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 (£60.70) with sun protection and skin calming benefits. The formula of this medium-weight daily moisturiser has been upgraded to increase its SPF from 30 to 50 whilst using 50% less chemical sunscreen agents, resulting in a wearable product ideal for ageing or sensitive skin.
Oleosomes are naturally-occurring spheres of emollient oils and vitamin E found in safflower seeds. These unique molecules are used to deliver active ingredients such as sunscreens directly to the skin surface and release them over time to ensure maximum skin benefits. Oleosome technology prevents unwanted oiliness or chalkiness in the product, resulting in a smooth finish.
In addition to shielding the skin from on-going solar assault, Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 reduces hyperpigmentation and contains a patented polypeptide which helps to stimulate collagen synthesis. Antioxidant white tea, rich in polyphenols, inhibits lipid peroxide formation and helps neutralise free radicals (ROS), advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) to help regulate collagen degradation. Other ingredients include a calming agent, liquorice root extract which is ideal for use after exfoliation. Hyaluronic acid and algae extracts help fight fine lines associated with dryness and a skin smoothing complex stimulates natural exfoliation.
Dermalogica may not be able to slow the march of progress, but it can harness it to change your skin forever.
