With summer approaching here in Europe, it is time to think about sun protection for many people. I’m a sunscreen believer, so I’m wearing sunscreen no matter what season it is. This is even more crucial if you have chemical exfoliants (AHA, BHA, PHA, Vitamin C…) in your skincare regimen. Here is one of my currently used sun protection products, the Dermalogica Prisma Protect SPF30.
Dermalogica is an American Personal Care company and their products are sold in more than 80 countries all over the world. This means that it is quite likely, that you have heard of this brand before. I have some of their products in my skincare rotation at the moment, and not so long ago I wrote a review for their Dermalogica Biolumin-C Serum. So if you are looking for new Vitamin C serums by any chance, also take some time to stop by my review >>here<<.
The Dermalogica Prisma Protect is a light-activated multitasking product, combing moisturizer and sunscreen. It contains a broad spectrum high sun protection with SPF30. The product is designed for all skin types and helps to prevent damage and aging by protecting the skin from pollution and UV.
The sun protection ingredients used in this cream are Homosalate, Octocrylene, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, and Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane. Apart from these UV-Filters, the Dermalogica Prisma Protect also contains Vitamin E (Tocopherol and Tocopheryl acetate) for anti-aging properties. Other noteworthy ingredients are Ginger Root Oil, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract and Chlorella Vulgaris Extract.

The Dermalogica Prisma Protect is free from parabens, sulfates, and alcohol. Moreover, the product is cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny and PETA. It is vegan, no synthetic dyes or fragrances, and, if this isn’t enough, it is gluten-free, too.
The product itself comes in a plastic tube which was packed in a prism-shaped cardboard box. The signature design of the brand is typically white with the brand printed predominantly on the packaging. The Prima Protect Cream has a holographic cap and several holographic elements in addition to the simple design. This fits nicely to the idea of a light-activated product.
The tube contains 50 ml of product, which is a good size to start with. The tube squeezes easily and reveals a white cream. It is advised to apply the cream after your other skincare steps, and 30 minutes before sun exposure.
The cream has a herbal kind-of scent with a hint of ginger, which is not very dominant. The cream spreads well and leaves a subtle glow. It feels dry and not greasy, but still, it provides some moisture. I still need a moisturizer below this sunscreen though for my dry skin type, and I could not use this as moisturizer and sunscreen in one product. Moreover, SPF30 might not be high enough for summer, but for low sun exposure, it might be enough. I enjoy however the lightweight feeling on the skin and the way it absorbs quickly. Have you tried any products by Dermalogica? What do you think about the Dermalogica Prisma Protect? In my opinion, it’s a good product texturewise, but too expensive for the protection given and regarding daily use. For a multipurpose product, it does not give me enough hydration.
You can get the serum for 67€ from Dermalogica.
