dermalogica dynamic skin recovery [holy grail]

I was sent this product by iFabbo for review.  All opinions are my own and post may contain affiliate links.

I was sent this product for review.  I'll be honest, I let it sit on my counter for a veryyy long time.  I'm not sure why, other than I was confused by it.  Was it a daily moisturizer?  Is it just a facial SPF?  It was summer [hot/humid/kansas] && the thought of putting an unknown lotion onto my face wasn't at the top of my list.  I fear moisturizers that heavily advertise an SPF in them.  I have oily acne prone skin, && usually SPFs are greasy...

Well my deadline loomed over my head and I knew if I didn't try it, I wouldn't be able to give a proper review [I like to try a product for 1-2 months before I review it].  I sat down at the computer and started researching this stuff.  Okay, so it IS a daily moisturizer with an SPF.  Got it.  So I pumped some out onto the back of myyy hand.  Hmm... I wasn't sure about it because it had THAT SPF lotion look to it [I know you know what I'm talking about].  I rubbed it into my skin.  It melted right in, and left no residue.

Okay here it goes... I woke up one morning and decided today was the day.  I washed my face, toned, then applied a pump onto my face.  I lightly patted it onto my skin.  This particular day I was running errands without makeup on.  So I went on my way.  To my surprise, my skin never got greasy that day.  

Right.  So no grease pan face, that's a plus!  But am I going to wake up in a week with a full face of pimples because my skin hated it?  Time will tell...  I continued to use the product daily for a month and I tell you what, I'm very impressed with Dermalogica DSR.  I never broke out [ah-mazing] && it moisturized without turning me into a grease pit.  I have a seriously hard time finding daily moisturizers that pass both the pimple && grease test.  Well I found one!

  1. Wow, thats impressive! Every time I put anything with SPF on my face I seem to instantly break out, I'll have to give this a go. Great review :)

    1. Thanks! <333 I was honestly shocked that I didn't break out. I was initially supposed to receive a different product, I wouldn't have chosen this for myself. AH well, it worked out! Aha!
