Dermalogica Prisma Protect SPF30 Review

Dermalogica Prisma Protect SPF 30 Review

Welcome Skintellectuals!

Whenever something arrives from Dermalogica you know its going to be fun to try! I feel like Dermalogica is one of a few few amount of brands that actually still innovate and create products that are unique.

Prisma Protect SPF 30, first and foremost is a moisturiser which is light-activated and provides broad spectrum defense against UV rays whilst preventing future signs of skin damage.
What really impressed me about this product is that it apparently contains something called “Intelligent Drone Technology” which is activated by visible light. This technology helps to boost skin’s natural luminosity. Whilst I wouldn’t rely on this solely for sun protect id still use a dedicated sunscreen, Prisma Protect contains a Broad Spectrum SPF30

As you can see above Prisma Protect contains quite a few interesting ingredients like: Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract better known as Green tea which is proven to be a great antioxidant, UV protectant, anti-inflammatory, anticarcinogenic and antimicrobial, Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-12 A six amino acid peptide that is claimed to improve firmness and skin tone and Saccharide Isomerate which is a plant-derived moisturiser that mimics the natural carbohydrate fraction found in the upper layer of the skin. Its special magic power is to bind to the skin stronger and longer than other moisturizer ingredients do so it can keep the skin hydrated longer than usual.

Dermalogica Prisma Protect SPF 30 Review

I feel like this is the perfect morning moisturiser because not only does it contain an SPF of 30 it also contains some really good antioxidants which when used with sunscreen + vitamin c make an award winning combination.
I love the really gorgeous glow this gives to the skin when applied, its definitely not shiny which can be a problem with some sunscreens.

I would say this would be really good for dry skin because not only does it contain superior hydrators it has the whole glowy factor which is perfect for dull dry skin types.

You can find Dermalogica Prisma Protect SPF30 (£17.50 for 12ml or £58* for 50ml) at and instore as well as on
