Beth & Victoria discuss the burning questions regarding Dermalogica's NEW Prisma Protect SPF30.

How to use Dermalogica Prisma Protect SPF30

After cleansing and toning, apply a generous amount of Prisma Protect SPF 30 to face and neck, preferably 30 minutes prior to sun exposure. Your 50ml bottle should last 60 uses and you only need to use this product in the day (not at night!)


Unique Algae Blend Revitalizes Skin and Protects Your Healthy, Youthful Glow

Intelligent Drone Technology

Tiny, cosmetic drones deliver light-activated algae to specific fibroblast skin cells in order to boost collagen in your skin.

In other words - clever technology means that your weakest skin cells receive a boost of nutrients that causes them to firm and plump your skin like crazy!

While this technology might be a lot to get your head around - trust us - it’s one of the best ways to ensure smooth and bright skin.

Did we mention the type of algae found in Prisma Protect SPF30 is activated by light? That means when you are in the sun your skin will actually work harder to repair against environmental damage.

Put it this way - in those moments that the sun thinks it’s doing its worst damage, you can be confident knowing that your skin is protected against ageing UV rays… more than that you can be smug knowing that your skin is repairing itself against potential damage while that cheeky sun shines down on you!

Advanced Moisture Magnets

Plant-derived hydration that works all day long. A unique, skin-identical carbohydrate complex (saccharide isomerate) connects perfectly with skin’s outer layers, binding water to the skin like a magnet.

Let’s try and keep this simple: when your skin contains moisture it looks plump and supple. The more moisture your skin can retain, the more plump your skin will be.

Often, people think: “any old moisturiser will surely hydrate?!”

Truth be told, supermarket moisturisers only hydrate your skin for a limited time. The longer a product hydrates your skin, the better it is at protecting you from moisture loss that occurs thanks to air conditioning, central heating, weather conditions and pollution. Advanced moisture magnets basically bond to the keratin that is already present in your skin, binding extra moisture to keep your complexion plump and visibly smooth.

Matcha Tea (Camellia Sinensis)

Japanese Matcha Tea (Camellia Sinensis) provides 100 times more polyphenols (micronutrients) than traditional green tea along with exceptional antioxidant protection, quenching free radicals and helping to defend skin against pollution and UV.

In plain terms: antioxidants stop little free radical molecules from damaging your skin. Without protection, free radicals will pair with your skin’s healthy cells and damage them - causing fine lines, wrinkles and dull skin.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who is this product for?

Prisma Protect SPF30 is designed for those aged 20 to 30-something. It’s a day cream for your face and neck to maintain healthy skin and prevent skin damage. And it's designed to do three key things.

1. Defend. Defend against UV, pollution, and free radicals.

2. To hydrate. So, it's a moisturiser, but we've got advanced technology in here so that it hydrates the skin all day long, to tackle dehydration.

3.The third thing Prisma Protect SPF 30 does is it boosts your skin's natural luminosity using some exciting new drone technology.

What results can you expect to see after using Prisma Protect SPF 30?

So the key thing is obviously over time, cumulatively using this product, you're going to be preventing skin damage. So you've got a really good, superior SPF and pollution defence within there. So the more you use it, obviously, you're going to minimise skin damage and prevent premature ageing.

What you will see is an increase in hydration. So most of us will suffer with a lot of water loss during the day, so our skin is quite dehydrated, so it can't function as effectively, it doesn't look as glowy and as plump and as healthy. So that will definitely be an improvement that you will see. And then the intelligent drone technology boosts your skin's natural luminosity. Dermalogica have some clinical studies coming very soon that actually prove the increase in luminosity and inner glow. It's about inner, natural radiance, not about like a primer or a highlighter type glow. It's boosting the skin's glow from within.

So you will see a healthy glow. You will see luminosity. And you won't see fine lines, wrinkles, pollution damage like hyper-pigmentation, things like that. So it's defending and it's giving us a glow at the same time.

Is Prisma Protect SPF 30 suitable for dry skin?

So the idea is that it's designed for all skin conditions, as Dermalogica wanted as many people to use it as possible. And it's in the daily skin health line. So it's like an everyday skin health essential. Texture-wise, it's a light to medium weight texture. So if you have super super dry skin it might not be heavy enough for you. It's designed to give a light, sheer coverage. Dermalogica’s suggestion is if you have really really dry skin, and that's your genetic skin-type, you might want to stick with your Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance cream, to really address dry skin. However, there's no reason why you couldn't put some Prisma Protect SPF 30 over your Intensive Moisture Balance, as an example. Or another option is to use something like Phyto Replenish Oil. So using an oil serum, that you can utilise under your Prisma Protect SPF 30, just to give that more oily defence that you need underneath. So there are ways of being able to incorporate Prisma Protect SPF 30 into a dry skin routine. It really depends on how dry your skin is.

Is Prisma Protect SPF 30 suitable for sensitive skin?

It's very tricky with sensitive skin because how sensitive is your skin? How reactive is it? I think the key thing is that it will probably be tolerated by many a sensitive skin, but if you know that you don't get on with chemical sunscreens, so for a lot of sensitive skins you can't use any chemical sunscreen. So remembering that the Dermalogica Super Sensitive Shield SPF30, from the ultra-calming line, that is our chemical-free SPF. You do have that as an alternative.

Is SPF 30 strong enough for sensitive skin, or would SPF 50 be more suitable?

So the first thing to know is that you cannot block out 100% of UV, it's impossible. And SPF30 will block out about 96% of UV rays. If you jump to an SPF50 you get a 1% increase, so you block about 97%. Really, anything above a 50 you could argue isn't really worth it, to be honest. So that's completely adequate. If you are going to "sunbathe" and sit in the sun then you have to follow the standard rules of applying generously, and applying every hour, hour and a half.

Is Prisma Protect SPF 30 suitable for oily skin types?

Yeah, so again, texture-wise, light to medium weight, so I think that if you're normal combination, a bit of oily shine, it will probably be absolutely fine. It's quite a sheer coverage. It's not gloopy or thick or heavy, or anything like that. But I think that if you are super oily and you prefer a matte look, don't forget we've got the Dermalogica Medibac Oil Free Matte SPF30. So if you're kind of on the acne side of things, if you suffer with spots and really oily skin, you can see it, then it's that one.

There's nothing in Prisma Protect SPF30 that's going to make you break out and as I say, it's not thick or heavy, it's not comedogenic, or pore clogging or anything like that.

Is Prisma Protect SPF 30 suitable for ageing skin?

So this designed for your 20s-30 something. I think if you are noticing on your skin you are already ageing, so you are seeing visible lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, anything like that, then you would probably want to opt for Dermalogca’s Age Smart Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50, in the age-smart line. There's no reason why you can't use Prisma Protect SPF 30 if you love it, and like you said, you layered your Biolumin C serum underneath it for example, you you're getting your ageing defence and firming from your booster product underneath. So that's a good combination.

But Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 has your peptides and other age fighting ingredients, so if visible ageing is your key concern, then you might want to opt for your Dynamic Skin Recovery. If you are looking to prevent premature ageing, Prisma Protect SPF 30 is a brilliant defence.

Can I wear Prisma Protect SPF 30 on it’s own, or do I have to use it with other products?

I think as with all Dermalogica regimens, it's really personal. If you are a wash and go person, and you just cleanse and apply Prisma Protect SPF30, great. You've got clean skin and you've got protected, defended, hydrated skin. If you like a more complex regimen and you're double cleansing, you want to spritz with your toner, you want to apply an oil or a booster or a serum underneath, eye cream, any of that, you can go ahead.

It can replace your current moisturiser if you want it to.

How much is Prisma Protect SPF 30 50ml and how long will it last?

It’s RRP £58 and will last for 60 uses.

How and when should you use Prisma Protect SPF 30?

Use it as part of your morning regimen. So doing your Dermalogica double cleanse, exfoliating if that's part of your regimen that day, and as I said, you can either just apply it onto clean skin, or if you want to spritz with your toner, serums, boosters, etc, you can do. Apply your Prisma Protect SPF30 last before you put your make-up on, and if you're going to.

Prisma Protect is designed to work with your day time defence mode of your skin, really optimising that skin defence, and then come the evening, it really perfectly partners with Dermalogica’s Sound Sleep Cocoon night gel, which is then designed to work with your nighttime biological rhythms of regeneration and repairing the skin.

  • The smell of the product is more like other sunscreens, that is, a bit too chemical but at least you know it will work then.

  • Lovely product easy to use have taken it on holiday to tgsijsbd with me

  • Nice texture absorbing quickly into the skin. Skin is left feeling great, especially when mixed with Phyto Replenish Oil.

  • This is a definite must in your 40's. Light enough to wear daily, leaving the skin feeling silky and hydrated. Brilliant for helping to combat the signs of ageing caused by UVA & UVB rays!

  • Nice to use, worked well all day. Bit of a suncream smell but very subtle.

  • On first use, Prisma Protect SPF 30 is a lightweight moisturiser that leaves a sheer glow instantly! I have since used Prisma Protect SPF 30 every day for 10 days and my skin looks and feels radiant. It’s not at all chalky or heavy, which is really unusual for a product that contains SPF. I use it on top of Dermalogica’s Age Smart Biolumin C Serum for extra glow! I hardly use any makeup because I am extremely pleased with my happy skin!

  • My first impression is that this is a pretty good product. It absorbs well and isn't greasy with the SPF in there. Skin felt soft throughout the day. My only quibble was that I wasn't a big fan of the smell, but I think that is because it smells different from what I currently use. Great that it has an SPF - if only we had the sunshine to really test it!

  • This is a lovely light moisturiser - hard to believe there's a sunscreen in it when it's not heavy or sticky like you'd expect! It glides on so smoothly and makes my skin feel a shade brighter - gets my vote ever day!

  • I have been using this for a few days now and I am impressed with It. I have dry skin so add the phyto oil for my skin to feel fully moisturised.

  • Great product, worked a treat. 5*

  • Just after a couple of uses, I already love this product! It just sinks into my skin without leaving a hint of residue. A bit early to say if it's defending my skin against UV rays and pollution but my face sure feels a lot smoother and brighter. I can't stop touching my face!

  • I’m very happy with this cream. I have combination skin. I’ve been looking for a good quality moisturising SPF30 cream for ages. Others I’ve tried are usually far too rich/thick and they feel greasy/heavy on my skin, or they don’t moisturise enough and I get dry patches. I’ve had Prisma Protect for two weeks now. It is incredibly light and a little goes a long way, giving good coverage. My make-up also applies really well over the top and stays on, so it’s almost like a primer too. This product is not cheap, but worth every penny. Will definitely be buying again!


New moisturiser stops 85% of pollutants from clogging your open pores

In this video Beth from Jersey Beauty Co interviews Dermalogica’s education executive Victoria. Beth asks questions about Dermalogica’s new Prisma Protect SPF 30 moisturiser and how it protects skin against pollution.


Prisma Protect caught my eye and made its way into my daily routine about a year ago.

Just after a couple of uses I fell in love with this product. It literally sinks into my skin without leaving even a hint of chalky residue - which is unusual for a product with SPF. Prisma Protect is an easy everyday wear for me because it’s so light and absorbs quickly into my normal combination skin without clogging up pores or making me shine like a lightbulb. It does have a hint of a SPF-esque smell but in my humble opinion, that’s a small price to pay for visibly smoother and brighter skin every day!
