|Dermalogica Daily Defense Block SPF 15||
It is clear that a daily sunscreen should be part of your regular skin care regimen, if you plan to reduce signs of aging. After all, an effective sunscreen can block or filter out damaging UVA and UVB rays, which are responsible for age spots, wrinkles, and sun damage. In this review, we are going to scrutinize Dermalogica Daily Defense Block SPF 15, which is marketed as an anti-aging formula. This $35 skincare product is specifically formulated for men. According to the main website, this face formula is ideal for a man on the go.
Dermalogica Daily Defense Block SPF 15 is a multipurpose skincare product that aims to hydrate the facial skin, minimize shine, and shield the dermis from damaging UV rays. This formula is referred to as an anti-aging treatment, as well as an aftershave, moisturizer, and sunscreen, all in one. It may help reduce razor irritations, combat environmental aggressors and pollutants, and help rebuild your skin’s natural barrier. Dermalogica Daily Defense Block SPF 15 should be applied to the face each morning after cleansing the skin.
Three sunscreen ingredients are mentioned for this product, which are Oxybenzone 2%, Octinoxate 7.5%, and Octisalate 3%. These ingredients help combat damaging UV rays, and protect the skin from further sun damage. Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 is used in Dermalogica Daily Defense Block SPF 15 to encourage collagen production, while Lavender Oil is added to soothe any irritation. Grape Seed Extract is used in this formula to fend off harmful free radicals and protect the skin from damage. Glycerin and Vitamin E are also used in this anti-aging treatment, and should help moisturize and protect the skin.

The Bottom Line
The idea of Dermalogica Daily Defense Block SPF 15 is certainly convenient and low-maintenance. After all, you supposedly get four different products in one. This can be less expensive and less hassle for many guys. Then again, there are no proven anti-aging ingredients like Argireline or Matrixyl used in this formula. Therefore this product may not work well on wrinkles and surface lines. Furthermore, this face moisturizer only provides an SPF of 15, which is the minimum you are supposed to use each day. This will not be sufficient for some lifestyles and preferences.
