Extra Care Non-Greasy Sunscreen SPF 50 for Normal to Oily/Combination Skin has a lightweight lotion texture that smoothes easily over skin and provides a soft matte finish. It has a much more elegant feel than many other high-SPF products, and provides sufficient UVA protection thanks to stabilized avobenzone. The formula contains antioxidants to boost skin's environmental defenses and is very water-resistant. Ideal for active people or anyone spending several hours outdoors. This sunscreen is ideal for normal to oily or blemish-prone skin but can be enjoyed by all skin types.

This antioxidant-rich sunscreen provides broad-spectrum sun protection without leaving a greasy or waxy film on skin. Formulated for the face and body, it may be worn under makeup and is ideal for outdoor activities because it is very water-resistant. Extra Care Non-Greasy Sunscreen SPF 50 slips on smoothly and leaves skin with a softly radiant matte finish.

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 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!"

    Matte and healing
    • Since I have a sensitive skin, I have to stick to mineral-based sunscreens for my face, but for the rest of my body this is a great alternative. It feels like a whipped body milk which absorbs very quickly and does not leave you looking ghastly or greasy. I also found that it has healing properties: in the winter I had a break out on my forearms which left me with small marks/spots. I swear after using this sunscreen for two weeks, these marks are visibly reduced!

    Can't Use On Face
    • I am only able to use this product on the back of my neck and decollatage. When used on my face it causes bumps and scaly patches. None the less, on the drier skin in the areas I mentioned before, it works very well and penetrates quickly . I would recommend it as an appropieate for use on the body but not on the face.

    DON'T let it expire!
    • I made the mistake of using this product before noticing that it was two months past its expiry date. My little girl and I were badly scorched in horrible streaks, despite multiple even and liberal applications. I know that I have used other sunscreen brands past their expiry without an issue. I love the non-greasy finish and PC was very gracious about refunding our money, but it was an experience I never want to repeat. Be careful.

    The best daily sunscreen I've found!
    • I am so happy this is back in stock! I have very fair skin and have a long drive to work in the Florida Sun and this is the best sunscreen for daily use. It is moisturizing without being greasy and gives mineral protection without smelling like a day at the beach. The only comparable product out there is by Clinique but this one is better!

    I'm not crazy about this sunscreen
    • I love PC products, but I find that this sunscreen does leave me looking pretty shiny / greasy. Also, since switching to this sunscreen from mineral ones (i.e. zinc oxide, which admittedly looks even worse), I've found my skin becoming more sun-damaged. Granted, I spend a lot of time outside, but unfortunately my search for a sunscreen that protects my fair, sensitive yet somewhat oily skin, that doesn't leave me looking greasy (this one) or like I'm wearing clown makeup (zinc oxide) continues.

    Love!
    • I love how this product is so light! It actually has a whipped texture and smooths over skin very well. Also does not leave my face feeling greasy like most waterproof/resistant lotions. A must if you spend a lot of time near water and want to take great care of your skin.
