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!"

    Good but not my holy grail.
    • I like how moisturizing this product is and that it can feel good without leaving me looking shiny but I don't love the initial white cast, it fades, or the five to ten seconds of mild stinging that I feel after I apply it. I wish Paula would release a tinted mineral sunscreen ala Coola or Cotz! Please!

    The best!
    • This is excellent in my opinion. I love this.I've got through about ten tubes. Started using this when it was spf 15 and am delighted it's now 30. Moisturising, physical sunscreen( I can't use chemical around eyes) full of antioxidants, I can't fault it. I have been using PC for about 4 years now and have yet to be disappointed with anything I've purchased.Only thing is I'm in UK and it's not so cheap here. I think I'll emigrate to the US so I can buy all Paula's stuff ha ha . Excellent try it

    Very good for sensitive skin
    • This is one of the few mineral sunscreens available. I cannot use moisturizer with chemical sunscreens which make my face break out in a rash. I previously used J&J Purpose, but they re-formulated with avobenzone so can no longer use it. I have very dry skin due to a thyroid condition and this is great for dry skin. I just wish this came in a higher SPF.

    Disappointed as well
    • My skin is normal to dry. When I use this cream my skin feels - under the white and shiny film - very dry. I don't feel my skin pampered by this product.

    What a disappointment
    • I thought I'd try this because it's recommended for normal to dry skin. And, I have a bit of dry skin. It was a big disappointment. It leaves skin feeling very dry, and unmoisturized. It also soaks in before you can finish distributing it all over your face. And, you have to apply more. I am going to go back to using the Resist daily facial sunscreen after this. It's a far superior product.
