This is a must have for men who have sensitive skin but coarse beards - tried everything b4 this - but this is only product that took care of ingrown hair, rash and healing whilst also protecting my skin ---
I've been using this product for about 2 years now, I am a Retired US Marine who has spend a lifetime in the sun, this is one of the best products I've ever used, my only complaint is that it doesn't come in a higher spf, like 30 or so.
My husband uses this product and it makes his face so soft and it has Spf in it!
I have combination type skin. The addition of the SPF makes this much thicker than the active moist. It also did not have a mate finish for me and left my face very shiny within an hour or so
Daily Defense Block SPF15 makes my husband's skin look A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! His skin was starting to look dry and tight, but now that he uses this it looks healthy, soft, touchable... and more youthful! He uses this after the Clean Bar and the results have really made a noticeable difference!
I'm in my early 30's and have been using Dermalogica since I was 25. For several years, I've used Daily Defense Block and it is the perfect moisturizer and daily sun protection for men with active lifestyles. My skin is looking better than many of my friends and I attribute a lot that to this product and my early commitment to Dermalogica.
Have used this product for over a year and it is the best I've used for my sensitive skin.
This product does what it promises - and exceeds expectations. It is a light non-greasy moisturizer that protects your skin and, for me, absolutely reduces ingrown hairs. I use it every day after shaving. I was a little worried about the packaging at first but as it turns out this is a very well-designed plastic pump that delviers the product is small amounts. This is great because a little of this moisturizer goes a long way - it's that good. I highly recomend this for anyone, but especially if you have a combination of tough beard and sensitive skin like me. Combine it with the aftershave balm and you have a terrific one-two punch (but it works great as a stand-alone moisturizer too). I have used this product for three months so far and cannot say enough good things about it. Finally - a product that delivers on its promise!

Q:Would this work for women? Just as a general moisturizer and not shaving?
Q:What is the name of the incredient that adds the sun-block effect?
Q:Is this non-comodogenic?: I get occasional pimples, and want to make sure this wouldn't potentially clog pores. I wouldn't want the spf30 lotion as I prefer spf15.
Q:'Daily' usage even when not shaving daily?: I have been using this product for a couple of months now and am curious whether I am applying it correctly. I am 19 years old and only shave every 3 days or so in the evening, because in the mornings I am always too busy to do so.
A:Thank you for your inquiry. Daily Defense is a moisturizer that is meant to be used every day. If you feel that this moisturizer is too heavy try using less. You only need half a pea size amount for the face. You should apply moisturizer morning and night regardless if you have shaved or not. On days that you have shaved we recommend using Post Shave Balm. This cooling and calming balm will help to sooth skin and can also be used as a light weight moisturizer without sunscreen.
Q:Does this product provide protection against both UVA and UVB rays?
