Beauty Review: Prisma Protect SPF30 from Dermalogica

One of the skin care products I use daily is a moisturiser… but I’m not always that good at applying SPF on top of that! Naughty I know!! This is exactly why I’m very excited to discover this new product from Dermalogica – Prisma Protect SPF30

This breakthrough antioxidant technology helps protect skin against pollution while the Broad Spectrum Defense SPF30 sunscreen provides protection from UV rays, free radical damage and pollution. Prisma Protect contains advanced moisture magnets that hydrate the skin all day long, while sclareolide, a bio-ferment from sage, helps maintain an even skin tone by reducing inflammation to maintain a pigmentation-free skin tone. The product also contains light-activated intelligent technology that converts visible light into increased skin radiance and promotes even skin tone offering protection, hydration and radiance in one product making mornings that much simpler!


Sun protection is vital, but a sun cream that works hard as a multi-tasking moisturiser is the ultimate beauty dream.

Prisma Protect is the skincare equivalent of putting you in a safety bubble, protecting you from all UV light as well as pollution and free radicals. The inclusion of chemical filters offers broad spectrum protection from burning UVB and the deeper penetrating and ageing UVA, while antioxidant-rich Japanese matcha tea shields against environmental aggressors and city air.

The formula uses “Intelligent Drone Technology” to ensure that the encapsulated active ingredients surrounded by peptide ligand molecules deliver the key actives to the correct cells in your skin.

In an eight week study, 100 per cent of the panellists testing the SPF saw a significant increase in luminosity

After cleansing and toning, apply a generous amount to face and neck, preferably 30 minutes prior to sun exposure. Prisma Protect can be used in place of your moisturiser as a primer for foundation to ensure an even application of make-up.

This is the perfect morning moisturiser because not only does it contain SPF30, it also contains some really good antioxidants. I love the really gorgeous glow this gives to the skin when applied. It’s lightweight, non-greasy and easily slotted into my morning skincare routine. I love this product for its’ protective properties and the natural glow, but I’m not a fan of the smell which is quite weird. Also avoid your eyes!! Although it has hydrating properties I find I need a bit of extra moisturising.

This product is gluten-free, vegan, fragrance-free, paraben-free and cruelty-free (Leaping Bunny and PETA approved, however they are owned by Unilever, who do test some products on animals.)


Price: R475.00 for 15 ml; R1100.00 for 50ml

  1. I’d love to try this product 🙂 however it is R475 for 15ml and R1100 for 50ml. Would you say it’s still worth it’s price?

    1. Hi Kirsten. Listen R1100 for 50ml is quite steep and I would probably think twice spending that much on a product but it depends on your budget and your current skin care regime. This product could do the same as three other products – day cream, primer and sunscreen so if you can buy one product for the same price (or less) than three products then it might be worth it. I would always advise that you first try the smaller size just in case the product doesn’t agree with your skin.
