Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense is the daytime moisturizer with sunscreen those with combination to oily, sensitive, breakout-prone skin have been waiting for! The lightweight cream quickly morphs into a nearly weightless matte finish that hydrates while providing gentle, mineral-based broad-spectrum protection with pure zinc oxide.

Because zinc oxide can sometimes leave a telltale white cast, we've added a subtle tint to this product so it looks like real skin—no more "ghost face"! The long-wearing matte finish helps keep excess shine in check while potent antioxidants work with the sunscreen to fight multiple signs of aging, from brown spots to wrinkles.

This fragrance-free daytime moisturizer is easy to apply, works great under makeup (you won't need your primer!) and is also excellent for use around the eyes. Some of our customers have told us this product is the best facial sunscreen they've ever tried—which we're very proud of because our goal was to create a daytime moisturizer with SPF that people with oily, breakout-prone skin would love to use—and it seems we've succeeded!

Pros:
  • Fragrance-free formula provides broad-spectrum sun protection.
  • Light, silky texture and long-wearing matte finish.
  • Contains a good mix of proven anti-aging ingredients.
  • Sheer, universally flattering tint means no telltale white cast!
  • Works beautifully under makeup.
Cons:
  • It's possible someone with combination skin will find this is too matte for their notably dry areas.

Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 is a daytime moisturizer with sunscreen designed for combination to oily skin with signs of aging. Its multi-purpose formula not only protects skin from sun damage, but also fortifies it with potent antioxidants to repair and stimulate collagen production for firmer skin. You will see a more even skin color, fewer visible lines and wrinkles, and the return of a younger healthy-looking glow.

This gentle, mineral-based formula has a sheer tint that works beautifully for all skin tones, whether worn alone or under foundation. An amazingly silky lotion texture leaves a soft matte finish that perfectly preps skin, allowing makeup to apply smoothly and evenly (no primer needed).

Pure, refined zinc oxide provides remarkable broad-spectrum protection without making skin more oily or triggering breakouts. It is perfect for sensitive skin or rosacea and great for use around the eye area. Daily sun protection is crucial for preventing wrinkles and brown spots, while still allowing skin to look fresh, even, and healthy.

    Best Ever!
    • Finally! A sunscreen that doesn't trigger my sensitive, allergy-prone skin. The fact that it has excellent anti-aging ingredients and a wonderful matte tint is just icing on the cake for me. Thank you Paula!

    Was not good on my oily skin
    • I have very oily skin and since this said it was a matte finish I was hoping it would be a good spf for my skin. I was wrong. It was very greasy on my skin and was even worse with makeup on top. I let a friend with dry skin try it and they said it felt like it just sat on their skin and left an unnatural apperance. Not happy with product at all.

    Perfect for oily skin
    • This is the perfect sunscreen for oily skin -- have no fear of looking like a oil slick! The tint looks good but not perfect on my jawline, where it looks a slightly darker than skin on my neck. That's a super easy fix though. I just mix it with an un-tinted, in part zinc oxide sunscreen - voila, perfection!! For reference, the PC resist 0 foundation is slightly too pale for me, so, if you are Vampire pale, just be prepared to mix this product with your white sunscreen. :)

    Great "Double Duty" Product!
    • So pleased with this product!. With the tint added, this works for me as a light foundation and sunscreen in one step. If needed, I use a little concealer and top off with P.C. pressed powder with sunscreen. I have combination skin and find the finish just right. My skin prefers a mineral sunscreen (which this has) to a "chemical" one and so I like that I can use this around my eyes with no problem.

    The BEST so far!
    • So glad I tried this new product! I was having issues with other serums and SPF moisturizers not keeping my liquid foundation where I put it, and I would get a sheen of oil on my face in a few hours. Not any more! It didn't completely take away the oil, but it's dramatically less noticeable and my foundation stays in place!!

    Awesome Product, Too Expensive
    • Impressive performance. Lives up to every claim. Lightweight, ultra-matte, clean non-sticky finish, tint blends away into skin. No better primer product on the market. I balk at the $27 price tag. I've been a loyal customer since PC products first came out and I know she would rate this as too pricey for a sunscreen and that users might skimp on application because of it. Will probably buy again when it's on sale.

    In a league of its own.
    • For oily to very oily skin, this truly might be the best sunscreen ever made. This stuff is designed for people (like myself) who've spent their whole lives hating sunscreen. As a bonus, this very lightweight, very matte sunscreen has made my 40 year old skin look so much better. It looks younger, brighter and clearer after I wash it off at night. I have been using Paula's Choice products for more than a decade, but this one truly blows me away. Reasonably priced, too.
