Update 7/2013 This was reformulated again, it's not very greasy but makes my skin produce lots of oil, even after I wash it off, during the night my face was drenching in oil. I stopped using it two days ago and suddenly I am back to normal. I have never had skin so oily in my life, and I have normal to oily sometimes even dry skin now. My face was covered in hundreds of small zits after I used newest version for a few days, my forehead was all bumpy. Too bad, I used to love this product.
this was reformulated, it smells different, but it's not bad, and doesn't linger, it doesn't have the same finish as the older version (now it's more moisturizing) but it's still better than some other sunscreens.
summer update: I still like it, I alternate this with LPR Anthelios AC, non greasy, matte, goes slightly whiter than Dynamic but no white cast. I do prefer Dynamic ss though, it's more than just sunscreen, it has peptides, makes my skin looking healthy, plump, smooth, poreless, glowy, and it is somewhat firming, but I will probably stick to Anthelios AC for super sunny days. Dynamic would work as a fabulous moisturizer/treatment if they got rid of all ss ingredients. I love how it brightens my face. This is the best moisturizer I ever used.
This is VERY good, not like all other cheap and expensive products made especially for oily skin which makes it even more oilier. No white cast, does not accentuate lines and pores, slight moisturizing, sinks in very good, brightens skin, does not leave greasy residue, does not slide off the face, does not form any film and does not suffocate the skin, does not clog my pores, does not cause breakouts. This is not a primer, so if you have pores they will be there, may be slightly smaller but definitely not larger (update: I take these words back because it's firming and does make pores smaller), this sunscreen gives very elegant finish. It will not ball up if you use a primer over it. It is very lightweight and does not feel like sunscreen at all. I have to blot after applying any sunscreen but not with this one. Its actually not for people with oily skin! So do not get confused by the description, it is not very emollient, if you have combination/oily skin it will work for you. It is very expensive but the total comes out really cheap if you keep purchasing samples from ebay (set of samples 25-30ml <$8-max$10, full size 50ml $60), try samples first. Ingredients, good and may be bad, I know about ingredients, I don't care. Not stable, we all know how bad it is but I do not fry myself under the sun for 10 hours per day so it will do just fine especially in the winter. I went for a bike ride several times wearing this sunscreen, my face and neck didn't get any sunburn, white as a sheet, I put neutrogena spf 70 on my arms, they got awesome, an even, gorgeous tan! :o) I did use unstable Murad spf30 in Africa for 2 years and never burned, there is no shade guys, a couple of short cactus bushes every other mile that's all you get, my family members were expecting to see me all perfectly tanned, Africa! when I came to visit they were very disappointed because I was like a ghost, there is no explanation for this miracle, how did unstable sunscreen manage to protect? while some stable formulations do not protect at all and if they do they still clog clog CLOG, this is so annoying, will this kind of daily clogging protection make you look younger and prettier in 20 years? how good is that for your skin? yuck! I am sick of blackheads and clogged pores I will use this one for now. My skin looks great, healthy, brighter, soft to touch, and for the first time in a couple of years I am not afraid to look at myself in the mirror!

Detailed Description
Hydrate and defend your skin with this Dermalogica AGE Smart Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF30 formulation. It's a medium-weight, emollient daily moisturizer that contains a patented polypeptide combined with Glucosamine and Soy. It's designed for mature and prematurely-aging skin, to stimulate collagen synthesis, and to enhance the skin's natural ability to fight skin-aging free radicals. It also helps prevent signs of aging caused by AGEs (Advanced Glycation End-products), which is a damaging byproduct of sugar/protein reactions in the skin. Additionally, this moisturizer contains White Tea polyphenols to regulate the formation of collagen-degrading MMPs brought on by UV rays while tripeptides, stabilized Vitamin C, Yeast Extract and Phytoestrogens help catalyze the skin's natural collagen production to enhance skin firmness. And as it assists collagen production, this moisturizer - SPF30 - also provides critical protection from daylight exposure. It blends smoothly into skin to create a perfect finish. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.
