I have never really considered my skin to be sensitive....but this stuff is the only moisturizer or product period that literally burns, stings, and I look sunburnt after using. I have had a bright red face all week, and it finally fades into red blotches after a few hours It also feels greasy, heavy, and just gross. Also, it STINKS!!! It has a smothery, very unpleasant smell. Ive used it for a week, thinking the burning was possibly temporary or maybe rejuvinating my skin. My face is really irratated and sensitive, and thats something Ive never experienced. Ive used many, many different skincare products and have never had any reaction like this. So, Im really not getting the great reviews from those who have sensitive skin and especially saying it has a pleasant smell. The product Ive been using is nothing remotely close to the positive reviews on multiple sites. Its not expired, the date is 01/19. Maybe a bad batch lol! Its terrible and way too expensive. Its going back, and I doubt Ill ever be using any other Dermalogica product...because of this awful experience. Its wayyyy too expensive. There are many, many products, that cost less, and are far better in every aspect. In fact, this is the worst beauty product or cosmetic item, I have ever purchased period. Thats saying alot...considering, Ive been buying cosmetics and beauty products since 1991.

Dermalogica has changed my skin for the better. I've always been reluctant to spend a lot of money on skincare and/or makeup, but after trying samples of the Age Smart line, I noticed a dramatic difference in my skin and that sold me on this line. I've been purchasing from Amazon but I'm very cautious about researching the sellers since there are knock offs out there. I'm 52 years old and am fighting wrinkles AND still have occasional breakouts. This line of skincare has made my skin softer and less oily. Totally recommend it!!!

Who can even get past the old lady perfume scent. It does not leave a white cast on the skin but I'm trashing this. Stinks.

LOVE this product. I have super fair skin and fry in the of sun. I live in Australia where the UV is very high, so I'm very conscious of protecting myself from skin cancer.I am incredibly sensitive to smells in products, especially ones that go anywhere near my nose, so I used to avoid products with SPF because it would make me physically ill. I bought the SPF 50 version of this because the sample I received with another purchase didn't have a strong smell. I don't regret it! I can put this everywhere on my face, neck etc and it doesn't bother me. It doesn't feel awful like a lot of sunscreens, and I can happily wear makeup over it with no issues. I love that it also moisturizes and defends against signs of aging. I don't find it oily and its never caused a breakout or redness. I find that its quite easy to get too much out of the bottle, so be careful of wastage. Its also quite pricey, at $85AUD in store. I got it for $70 off ebay. I don't know how long it will last as I use it all the time! I would consider it worth the money if you are looking for a moisturiser with SPF (both UVA and UVB protection) and are sensitive to smells or have sensitive skin. I will not leave the house without putting this on! Highly recommend!

MY SKIN: 27 years old, Dehydrated most times (but DRY in winter, sometimes Oily in summer), Sensitive to a lot of products, Asian (but with a tanned/olive complexion), Australian climate.PROs:It feels great on my skin, doesn't have a harsh "zinc-y" smell and doesn't clog my pores. It also hydrates my skin and doesn't have an ugly white finish on my olive skin. The updated version is actually SPF50, which is what I am using.CONs:The price is pretty steep for an SPF and only protects you from UVA and not UVB. I won't be repurchasing because I believe that there is better out there and I don't feel I'm getting the protection I need.

I love this sunscreen. For me it's a sunscreen, moisturiser and collagen booster all in one. I have combination skin that can't handle anything too thick or rich so this is perfect for me. I don't need to use a moisturiser in addition to the sunscreen. I am 53 years old and for me it's the only sunscreen that feels really light, makes my skin soft and helps prevent it aging. Everyone is so different in what their skin can handle, and the smell of a product is an individual preference but I love the smell of it on me. I have pretty sensitive touchy skin and it's been fine for me. It's really expensive here (NZ) so a couple of times I have tried other products but I keep coming back to this after other sunscreens made my skin break out or go super oily. I buy the salon size bottle of the Dynamic skin recovery spf30 which is a squeezy bottle which I prefer rather than a pump bottle. Since it's so expensive I would recommend asking for a sample or buying a sample kit to see whether this is for you.

Stinging and burning feeling after application which is not comfortable at all. After each application burning sensation in my eyes which does not go away for the rest of the day, and I do not wear it close to my eyes. My skin looks dehydrated after application, and I have a craquelé look all day long. Happy I tried and tested with samples first! Needless to say I do not like this product.

If I had to choose one word for this product it would be DISAPPOINTING. And on so many levels. I was first introduced to the Dermalogica line after getting a facial recently and it was suggested that I check out the products (of course it was). I'm 30 years old and have been genetically blessed with really great skin. My whole life I have been using Oil of Olay but wanted to snap into something a bit more sophisticated. I purchased this item at the recommendation of the facial lady, and it wreaks of sunscreen. I mean, I don't mind the smell in July, but at the office in mid-winter it seems a little misplaced. A bigger complain is the product leaves my skin feeling so tight and dry that I have to put extra on, which then leaves my skin really greasy (a problem that I don't usually have). I read a previous post from someone that was raving about how cost-effective this product is because you only need 2-3 pumps. I find that to be unbelievable as I need at least 6-7 to have my face feeling as it used to when I used a quarter sized amount of Oil of Olay.Overall takeaway, what a let down. Should have stuck with the moisturizer my mother and grandmother have been using for generations. In this case, if it ain't broke - don't fix it.

Great sunscreen. Doesn't clog pores like other sunscreens have done to me in the past but is moisturizing enough to relieve any tightness after cleansing. Does leave a bit of sheen on the face but goes away instantly after putting powder over. Love it. My HG sunscreen for face.

I have very temperamental skin - hormonal acne, large pores, sensitive, dry patches, etc. Finding a lotion that didn't clog my pores or sting my face was a challenge. Dermalogica Age Smart with SPF 30 has answered all of my prayers - anti-aging, non-comedongenic, non-irritating, and moisturizing. It is very expensive, but you only need a small amount (literally 2-3 pumps) and I've found NOTHING even close to this product. It's my HG and I will continue to pay a bit more for a product that actually works - instead of constantly adding to my graveyard of $15-$20 face lotions that irritate my skin! The only thing I don't like about the packaging is that you cannot really gauge how much product is left.
