Time Bomb Over-Exposed Sun Damage Rescue

Last year I really liked the results of the Time Bomb products on my skin so when I received this tube of Over-Exposed Sun Damage Rescue I was keen to give it a try on my dry Winter ravaged skin. Having lived in Australia and New Zealand for some years I know first hand the damaging effects the sun can wreak on your skin and to be honest living in such hot sunny countries really changed the way I tackle sun protection and my skin. These days I always use sun protection in my skincare routine without fail, every day. I don’t want to take any risks and jeopardise the condition of my skin, and I certainly don’t want to start noticing any premature wrinkles either!

Don’t be fooled into thinking that the sun’s rays wont harm you through a window either, when I was younger I never even gave this a second thought and didn’t factor being indoors albeit next to a window at work to have any impact on my skin. My advice would always be wear a broad spectrum sun protection all year round to protect our skin, I use Dermalogica’s Solar Defence SPF 50 as it’s simple to use over the face and neck and leaves no film whatsoever. 

The cream claims to ‘stop the clock’ and rescue photo-damaged skin with Omega9XEster a vegetable derived oil to help overly dry skin and antioxident rich Pycnogenol, this is a huge claim and although sceptical about the cream after using it I have seen some positive results. The cream is very emollient and does give dry, sun parched skin a needed moisture boost and reminds me of the Multivitamin mask from Dermalogica in it’s colour and texture, you could in fact apply a thick layer of this moisturising cream and use as a power mask if your skin needed it. 

The 40ml tube retails at £39.99 and is targeted at skin which has been effected by sun damage and is in need of some omega packed TLC, and one of the features I really liked is that this formula has been developed to leave the skin feeling soft and moisturised while leaving an almost matte finish. Something that I value as it makes applying make-up post application so much easier and doesn’t result in an oily film being left on the skin. If your looking for a rich cream to help soothe and heal your sun damaged skin this would be a great solution, just be aware it has no SPF included in the ingredients it’s purely to repair any damage you have already done to your skin.

    Damage of your skin by the sun is always a problem. I have very fair skin and burn very easily, often with factor 50 cream so I Understand concerns. I have never try Dermalogica on my face and for this price I would normally ask if a sample available first. I spent lots of of money over the years on repairing damage although I am worried on its richness. Great informative post. ❤

    I wish I had been better to my skin when I was younger. I grew up in southern california, where it's always sunny and never ever used skin protection. It's so important to take it seriously as soon as we can. The product sounds lovely, just wish it was a bit cheaper. Very good review, thank you x

    Lovely range. I was not familiar with it. Always take of my skin from the sun even in winter. At the moment I use Nuxe Paris.

    I've tried Time bomb before but only a sample cleanser I got in the christmas advent calendar. I have fair sensitive skin, so I def need to try this out! Thanks for the review!

    Must try this out, as I have fair skin and find with aging as well you can certainly see the effects of the sun.

    This sounds fab for me! As a teen (and early 20's) I used to abuse my skin by going out without sunscreen and burning myself to a crisp (especially my face)

    Sounds really good
