pure light spf50

Shield the skin from UV-induced hyperpigmentation (brown spots, discoloration and uneven skin tone) with this medium-weight daytime treatment. It features Oleosome technology, which uses natural plant spheres filled with sunscreens to increase SPF performance. A powerful peptide helps regulate melanin production while a potent blend of Red and Brown Algae combined with botanical extracts, help balance uneven skin tone. Cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid fortifies the skin’s natural moisture barrier, reducing the appearance of 
fine dehydration lines.
Although there is no standard for establishing a gluten-free designation for topical skin care products, independent laboratory testing confirms that this formula surpasses the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) ingestible standards and can therefore be considered gluten-free.

PowerBright TRx™

Brighter skin, without compromise.

PowerBright TRx™ is the product of several years of research on melanin biosynthesis and skin brightening by the skin health experts at Dermalogica and The International Dermal Institute.

Designed to be layered onto the skin for optimum efficacy, PowerBright TRx™ works around the clock to banish brown spots, discoloration and uneven skin tone for your brightest skin ever.

how it works

Brown spots, discoloration and uneven skin tone are all signs of hyperpigmentation, the treatment of which is a multi-faceted process. When integrated into your Dermalogica regimen, PowerBright TRx™ uses skin-brightening agents to control hyperpigmentation and eliminate dark spots while UV-boosting technology helps protect against future hyperpigmentation.

This sunscreen is deceiving


I was so excited to use the Power Bright series of products, and at very first use I really liked these products. After about a week of using the Power Bright regimen (serum, pure light, and pure night) I went on a long hike and used the Pure Light sunscreen thinking that SPF 50 would be enough for my face. I got the worst sunburn I have ever had in my life! My face is bright red, peeling, and super painful. It has lasted over a week and did not start to clear up until I stopped using Dermalogica products altogether and instead used a regular moisturizer. Perhaps these products make your skin more sensitive to the sun, but if so, Dermalogica needs to alert customers to that. I do not think this product works, and in fact my face is worse off than before I started using it. I am very disappointed.



Terrible allergic reaction


I love Dermalogica and use several of their products. I decided to upgrade my moisturizer and SPF protection to this product and had a terrible reaction. I am sensitive to SPF, which is why I chose Dermalogica. My face broke out in acne, the kind I haven't seen since high school - I'm 50. A coworker asked if I had chickenpox. If you have sensitive skin pick a different product.

Good product, bad customer service


I give the product 4 stars. However, I give the shipping and customer service 1 star. After I ordered the Pure Light, they shipped me a nice box that contained a lot of air and the free mini-product they give away. The packing slip included both products. Because I didn't want to spend my time on the phone to correct their mistake, I sent two emails to find out what happened. No reply. Finally I called and was told that they ran out of the Pure Light so just shipped me the free mini-product. It would have been nice if they called me, wrote me a note, sent me an email, or something what explained what happened. I guess I wouldn't have received the product if I didn't call them. Great customer service. I did finally receive the Pure Light, which is nice.



I love dermalogica however...


I have purchased the kit to try this product out, I have used all 3 for over 4 weeks. It is a nice, light-weight product but NONE would lighten my dark spots on my face. Do not waste your money in hope that it will lighten them - it wont. However I am happy with the Age smart overall but so far none has lightened my age spots....



I wont be buying


After using some time my acne increased and skin become so oily. I am stopped now using this cream as I am scared of the damage happened. I bought all the creams of Power Bright TX treatment along with Exfoliate and special cleansing gel..But now none I am using. I started with great hope to treat my pigmentation but it gave me very bad results.



I was hoping for best results but I am totally disappointed


I was very excited when I bought this product but the results are very disappointing after few weeks(around 4) My skin got spoiled very badly due to excessive oil produced and I got more acne on my face which resulted into marks and pimples which seems to be not fading away easily. I am very disappointed. I consulted the beautician who is selling the dermalogica products and explained my situation that my skin is oily and I am facing pigmentation issue around my chin and I wanted to brighten it. But it resulted into very bad stage and now I am back to my old creams which never gave me any pimples.I was hoping in few weeks time my skins becomes normal. With the excitement I bought all the creams with Power Bright package but now I am scared to touch them.





I have purchased this product several times, I absolutely love it. Not thick or strongly scented like some spf 50 moisturizers. Worth the price!

Lightweight SPF moisturizer that feels great

Very Light


Product has a shine at the beginning of application, but dries very quickly before applying makeup. All in all, it does not feel like I am wearing moisturizer.

I have dry - combo skin, i have red acne scars and was wondering if i can apply moisturizer above this, i use the cetaphil moisturizer. Can i then apply makeup over? I am deciding on which sunscreen to get and i am currently stuck on the sport spf50, pure light 50 as well as solar defense spf50. What do you recommend for me? I can get oily throughout the day but mainly more combo-dry.


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Try Pure Light SPF 50. Kind Regards, Bernadette


I have Melasma and am being treated with a compounding cream from my dermatologist that has hydroquinone, kojic acid and a cortisone and it seem to be working well. I am looking for a skincare range to help keep it at bay once it's faded or gone completely. Sunscreen is a big deal for those with Melasma. Is it of concern that this does not contain any zinc or titanium dioxide which act as great physical blockers for those with Melasma?


Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This contains a chemical SPF, since physical SPF can create a white cast on the skin. Kind Regards, Bernadette


You no longer make my "Daily Defense" cream. What is the alternative?


Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. I apologize. That item has been discontinued to make way for our innovations. You may like one of our other SPFs, like Prisma Protect SPF 30. Kind Regards, Bernadette


Hello! Does this product have a strong fragrance and can it be used as a moisturizer under my makeup?


Hello, We do not use artificial fragrances in our products. Thanks


can I use this product together with the skin defense booster?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It is not necessary. Kind Regards, Bernadette


Could you please provide the list of ingredients?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. The ingredients are listed at the bottom of the product page. Kind regards, Bernadette


I have quite sensitive skin, prone to flaking and dry spots and use a lot of the Ultracalm range which keeps it healthy. However I find the sunscreen in that range is too think and I break out. How would this product go with sensitive skin?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You may prefer Solar Defense Booster SPF 50. Kind Regards, Bernadette


Is this product pregnancy safe?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, this product is safe for pregnancy. However, you should always check with your doctor. Kind Regards, Bernadette


Hi there, Dermalogica is the only set of products that I get along with. Can I use this product on the rest of my body not just my face as a moisturiser and sun protectant as I can't find anything else that doesn't react with my skin. If you don't recommend I use this on my body is there anything other of your products you would recommend. Thank you Maddie


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You may like Protection 50 Sport SPF 50 for the body. Kind Regards, Bernadette


Hello, I bought the whole kit and seems to work very well for dark spots but my skin is also very dry and neither the day / night power bright creams seems to be enough to keep it well moisturised. I've been using age smart both super rich repair and dynamic skin recovery and I like them better, but they don't seem with the dark spots. Which combination can I use to solve this problem?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Bio Lumin C Serum as a brightening serum morning and night. Follow with Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50 during the day and Super Rich Repair at night. Kind Regards, Bernadette
