This daytime moisturizer with sunscreen was formulated especially for those struggling with breakouts. When acne is present, daily sun protection becomes even more important because sun damage hurts skin's healing response—potentially leading to red marks taking much longer to go away.

Clear Ultra-Light Daily Mattifying Fluid provides broad-spectrum sun protection that includes stabilized avobenzone for reliable UVA screening. It's lightweight fluid texture slips over skin and sets to a lasting matte finish, so you get sun protection plus shine control—this works beautifully as a primer beneath makeup!

As with all Paula's Choice daytime moisturizers with sunscreen, the formula is loaded with antioxidants plus skin-repairing glycerin and cell-communicating lecithin. Together, these work with the sunscreen to protect and strengthen skin—and all without a heavy, slick, or greasy feel. We think you'll be pleasantly surprised at just how light this feels, and it's exceedingly unlikely to exacerbate breakouts.

  • Provides broad-spectrum sun protection.
  • Ultra-light fluid won't make oily, acne-prone skin feel slick or greasy.
  • Sets to a long-lasting matte finish.
  • Doubles as foundation primer.
  • Protects and strengthens skin with antioxidants and other beneficial ingredients.
  • The sunscreen actives may be sensitizing for those with extra-sensitive skin.

Prevents multiple signs of aging, including wrinkles and brown spots; Hydrates oily, acne prone without feeling thick or greasy; Provides state-of-the-art broad-spectrum sun protection that feels unbelievably light; Sheer, fluid lotion is extremely unlikely to clog pores or cause breakouts; Antioxidants and cell-communicating ingredients allow skin to look and act younger; Keeps excess oil at bay and leaves a fresh matte finish; 100% fragrance- and colorant-free

    Best spf ever made
    • I have mid-fifties combo to dry skin and use this spf all over; especially on my eye-lids and orbital area. It dries down to a clear healthy finish quickly. It doesn't slip into or sting my eyes. (Even in hot humid weather it never melts into my eyes; causing the painful bleary eyed driving hazard that so many other products I've tried did. ) I even use it as a base for some eye shadows to help with the crepe skin issue. It plays very well with make-up. THE ONE spf I will not be without.

    Non mattifying no matter how I tried
    • I've normal to oily combo skin & I tried so hard to love this but this did NOT mattify at all. The finish looks dewy-greasy upon application with loose powder on top, & my mid-day shine couldn't come sooner. Will stick to Resist super-light once I finish my trial-size tube.
