Brand Overview

Redness Relief SPF 20 is daytime moisturizer with sunscreen that provides broad-spectrum sun protection with its in-part zinc oxide sunscreen. The green tint this has isn’t something you’d want to apply all over your face, as it tends to give the complexion a seasick appearance that must be covered with makeup to look normal.

Jar Packaging: No
Tested on animals: No

Neutralize, relieve, and defend against inflammation and redness induced by skin sensitivity and rosacea with this three-in-one SPF moisturizer. Natural earth minerals provide a sheer green tint to actively counter telltale redness, while soothing extracts calm inflamed, irritated skin. Sunscreens, Vitamin E and phytoactive anti-irritant agents provide critical defense against UV rays and help to control severity of daily flare-ups and long-term damage caused by the elements.

Dermalogica At-A-Glance

According to company history, Dermalogica products came into being because founder Jane Wurwand could not find a spa-oriented skin-care line that met her criteria. She was dismayed that so many skincare lines aimed at the aesthetics market had products that contained alcohol, artificial colors, fragrance, mineral oil, and lanolin, ingredients he believed had a well-documented history of problems. That's true for fragrance and alcohol (and artificial colors to a lesser extent), but mineral oil and lanolin have no documented history of causing skin problems.

The line is positioned as a no-nonsense, no frills take on skincare, with clinically-inspired packaging that does protect its beneficial ingredients from light and air. Speaking of ingredients, Dermalogica does include a lot of beneficial ones in its skincare, though there are a number of formulas in the line that also make the misstep of including potentially-irritating fragrance ingredients.
