This dual-action foundation brings proven anti-aging benefits to your makeup, and the results are impressive! The creamy texture smoothes over fine lines and imparts a luminous, natural-looking radiance for a youthful glow. Antioxidants (present in efficacious amounts) boost skin's ability to fight environmental damage, so you will see skin that not only looks younger, but also becomes healthier with each use. Now that's multitasking makeup we can get behind!

This fragrance-free foundation is best suited for those with normal to oily/combination skin seeking light to medium coverage. With shades that complement almost any skin tone from light to deep tan, the satin finish enlivens skin yet feels semi-matte for a fresh, youthful look (not flat, greasy, or mask-like).

Pros:
  • Goes above and beyond with skin-beneficial antioxidants and skin-repairing ingredients.
  • Creamy yet lightweight fragrance-free liquid formula.
  • Imparts luminous, natural-looking radiance.
Cons:
  • None.

Disclosure: Paula Begoun is creator of Beautypedia and founder of Paula's Choice Skincare products. Reviewing thousands of skincare and makeup products over the past 30 years, both on this site and in her best-selling books, Paula's mission has always been to help consumers find the best products possible for their skin. The Beautypedia Team proudly and unequivocally maintains this commitment. In addition, The Beautypedia Team reviews all products using the same rating standards and criteria, whether it is a Paula's Choice product or another brand.

Paula's Choice Skincare was established in 1995 when best-selling beauty author and consumer advocate Paula Begoun (known as The Cosmetics Cop) decided to develop her own products. Like most of us, she was fed up with products that overpromised results, cost a lot of money, and failed to deliver—or made matters worse!

As a natural evolution of Paula's personal mission to help consumers find the best products for their skin, the line has grown into an extensive range of skincare and makeup products that are formulated to meet the needs of almost every skin type and skin concern imaginable. From acne to wrinkles, oily skin, rosacea, large pores, eczema, redness, sagging, dry skin, and on and on, Paula's Choice offers a solution.

Paula's Choice Skincare stands apart from other cosmetics brands. The formulas contain only ingredients that have substantiated, published research showing they are beneficial and effective—so you get visible results. Stable packaging is another feature of the brand, using innovative, opaque, and air-tight or air-restrictive components that keep antioxidants and other light- and air-sensitive ingredients from breaking down (unlike jar packaging, which compromises what might otherwise be an effective formula). The line is also 100% fragrance-free, which is best for all skin types, especially for those with sensitive skin or rosacea.

From cleansers to broad-spectrum sunscreens to anti-aging serums to specialized treatments, Paula's Choice Skincare has you covered from head to toe with innovative, state-of-the-art products. The brand also offers professional-quality makeup products including concealer, foundation, eyeshadow, lipstick, and more. (Paula started out as a makeup artist so she definitely knows her way around a face!)

Paula's Choice Skincare does not test on animals and also takes an environmentally friendly approach by featuring minimalist, recyclable packaging. Another plus—the Customer Service team is among the best in the industry, offering a "100% satisfaction or your money back" guarantee.

Why are all Paula's Choice Skincare products rated highly? The Paula's Choice Skincare Team would not launch a product unless it was worthy of a high rating from The Beautypedia Team. Paula and The Beautypedia Team were researching and reviewing products long before Paula's Choice Skincare ever existed and consumers were constantly requesting a skincare brand that met all of Beautypedia's criteria. As a result, The Paula's Choice Skincare Team was created and uses the same research and criteria to formulate Paula's Choice products as The Beautypedia Team uses to review products.

    Paula's Choice Fan
    • I received my PC pkg. today and I love my new Resist Instant Smoothing Anti-aging foundation, my travel brush set and my All Over Hair & Body shampoo. I'm now a big PC fan! I'm also so happy that you DON'T test on animals! Now I'll just order from PC and not put up with all the hassle of shopping department stores, etc. Btw, I'm a freelance professional make up artist and I'll spread the good word about PC.

    More Shades, Please!
    • I'm a big PC fan and I love this foundation. But there are so few shades that I had to pick one that really isn't a fantastic match for my skin tone. I have #2 and it's a bit too light and too yellow; #3 was too dark. I would use nothing but this foundation if there were more color choices offering me a better match. Please?

    Perfect Match
    • One of my first buys was this foundation. I am level 3. I love the pump which gives just enough for the face. I actually use around a pea size. The color is a perfect match and blends beautifully. Over the years have tried it all but this one is a winner. So far I love all of Paula's products and hope to see a more complete line of cosmetics soon! The price is definitely right and I have never looked better!

    Simply cannot blend
    • I really don't understand why the texture of this foundation is so thick! Isn't it possible to use all these wonderful antioxidants in a much thinner consistency like the Best Face Forward foundation? With a dry sponge, wet sponge, fingers, brush or primer loaded with silicone's this foundation still settles into fine lines and accentuates patches of dry skin around the nose etc and yes I do use an exfoliant. The only positive comment I can make about this foundation is the shade range.

    Too hard to use
    • I was extremely disappointed with this foundation as it was impossible to blend evenly on my skin and it just looked awful.

    Colour Shades
    • I ordered the Light/Medium and Medium samples. The Light/Medium was too light and the Medium had an orange tint. I'd use this product (I liked how it felt and how it applied) if there were better/more colour shades.

    Great option for very fair skin
    • I've used Paula's Choice for years because her foundations are one of the few options available to gals who have VERY fair skin. If you are a "pale face" like me, give this a try -- you won't be disappointed.
