Does this product reverse exsisting brown age spots and can it be worn alone as moisturiser on the days you don't want to wear foundation etc thanks

Written by Nana on 6/11/2014
Pure Light SPF50 is a day time moisturiser that can be applied on its own and under makeup. This product does contain the latest technology in skin brightening, however there are so many triggers that cause pigmentation it is impossible for us to recommend the right solution for you personally. I recommend you visit one of our skin centres and get a Face Mapping Skin Consultation from one of our fully qualified Skin Therapists. That way she can provide you with a full in depth consult, as well as taking a close look at your skin before she prescribes the right home care regime for you.

The Face Mapping consultation is free of charge and usually takes anywhere between 15-30 minutes. It is also good to call and book this in, just in case the therapist is busy.

For a list of our skin centres please visit 'find a store' under the 'store locator' tab in the top menu of our website.

Feel free to contact us again if you have any further questions.

How similar is this product to the chromawhite pure light spf30 that I was using?

Written by cordura on 16/07/2015
Hi Cordura,
The key differences are that the PowerBright Pure Light has an increased SPF – 50 as opposed to the Chroma White Pure Light which was a SPF30. The sunscreen ingredients used in the PowerBright SPF50 are chemical rather than the physical sunscreen used in Chroma White Pure Light this means you will find the texture of the Power Bright Pure Light much lighter. Many people also find the Power Bright Pure Light more hydrating than the Chroma White Pure Light was. Finally Power Bright Pure Light has added brighteners such as pumpkin enzyme. Dermalogica will only change a formula if it is to improve it so I think you will love the new PowerBright SPF50.

I hope that helps!
From the Dermalogica team!
