The Dermalogica Redness Relief Primer SPF 20:  A make-up primer, sunscreen and redness-reducing treatment in one.  This product counteracts tell-tale skin redness and also soothes sensitised skin.  It comes in a light green colour and acts as a ‘veil’ to hide blotchy red areas on the skin for example overly pink cheeks.  Your favourite foundation or Dermalogica’s Sheer Tint can then be applied over this.


Velvety silicones to smooth the skin and strengthen barrier protection.  Physical sunscreen shields the skin from irritating UV rays.  Oat Extracts, Oat Kernel Oil and Dermalogica exclusive UltraCalming™ Complex helps soothe and strengthen the skin.  Natural botanical extracts provide a sheer green tint to counter redness.

Both Primers can be worn on its own or over the prescribed moisturizer for more visible smoothness and luminosity.  It can also be applied after moisturiser and before foundation to help fill fine lines for a lasting make-up finish.  These primers are formulated without any artificial fragrances and colours.

Quick tip:  Can be blended over skin with fingertips, or applied with a cosmetic sponge.
