Essential Non-Greasy Sunscreen SPF 15, for Normal to Oily/Combination Skin is my classic sunscreen lotion that contains avobenzone for UVA protection and leaves skin feeling fresh, smooth, and lightly hydrated. It is ideal for use anywhere on the body, and is designed to not pose problems for blemish-prone skin. This is a great sunscreen for anyone who doesn't like the thick, often occlusive feel sunscreens can have.

Your skin will feel soft, smooth and be protected from the sun with this lightweight, antioxidant-rich lotion.

Disclosure: In addition to reviewing thousands of cosmetic products from hundreds of brands over the past 30 years, Paula also has her own line of products called Paula's Choice. Paula and her team's goal is to help you find the best products possible for your skin whether they are from Paula's Choice or some other product line. Paula's commitment to this is so strong she is the only cosmetics company owner in the world that recommends products other than her own. Paula and the Paula's Choice Research Team formulate our products to meet or exceed the criteria we use to review products from every other brand on this site. We review all products the same way using the same research, objective comments, and praise no matter whose product it is.

Paula's Choice was created in 1995 in response to the many readers who asked Paula to develop her own products. Given Paula's unique overview of the cosmetics industry, 30+ years of research, and earnest desire to help people find the best products for their skin-care needs, creating her own products was a natural extension of her work. Paula's Choice range of products are designed to meet the needs and preferences of just about every skin type and concern imaginable using only proven ingredients substantiated by published research.

Paula's Choice products provide:

  • State-of-the-art formulas based on reliable, published skin-care research
  • Proven effective solutions for wrinkles, acne, rosacea, and sensitive skin
  • Gentle yet effective products for those seeking a natural skin-care routine
  • Fragrance-free formulas (because it is what's best for your skin)
  • Cruelty-free formulas: Paula's Choice does not test on animals during any stages of product development—nor do we contract with third parties to conduct animal testing on our behalf
  • Environmentally-friendly products that feature minimalist packaging that ensures product efficacy
  • 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee from our world-class Customer Service Team

Paula's Choice products and Paula's work is routinely praised by noted dermatologists and other professionals. New York-based dermatologist Dr. Debra Jaliman stated that "I have a lot of respect for Paula Begoun and the way she thoroughly researches her subject. Her recommendations about cosmetics and skin care are deservedly influential." Eminent Seattle-based dermatologist Dr. Brandith Irwin concurs: "She takes a complex subject and makes it easy to understand!"

    I miss it! Wish it would come back.
    • I squeezed the last little bit out of my last tube of this product today, and it was a sad, sad moment. I used this sunscreen as my facial SPF for several years and absolutely loved it. The texture was lovely and it provided just the right amount of moisture for my skin without being at all greasy. I miss it a lot. Please consider bringing it back, Paula!

    • I tried many different sunblocks (including other Paula's Choice options), and this was my absolute favorite for both face and body. It blended in well and didn't leave my skin feeling tacky or looking white. I am extremely disappointed that it has been discontinued, and I very much hope that Paula will decide to bring it back soon.

    I miss this product
    • Don't understand why this was discontinued as it seemed to be quite popular. It had just the right amount of moisture for me and did not aggravate my rosacea. The Non-Greasy SPF 45 isn't a comparable product. It has a very different texture and is not appropriate for sensitive skin.

    • Really miss this product!!! It was good to my skin and my wallet! Currently using the Skin Balancing Daily Mattifying Lotion spf 15 which is clumpy and doesn't feel like it provides enough moisture. I guess I will try the Pure Mineral spf 15. About to give up!

    was great. WAS.
    • I would recommend it but after using this for years I see it is discontinued. ---- It was a good product and from what I've seen, popular. I'm very disappointed that something so basic was discontinued. I've used the non-greasy 45 and it just isn't the same.
