Additional Information

Why is it different?
EXTRA CARE Non-Greasy Sunscreen SPF 50 has a light, silky texture and soft finish that doesn’t look or feel like a traditional sunscreen, yet provides a high level of broad-spectrum protection plus age-fighting antioxidants.

Collapse
What does it do?
This antioxidant-rich sunscreen may be used on the face and body. The very water-resistant formula is ideal for outdoor activities any time of year! The SPF 50 is a significant benefit as it decreases the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun if used as directed with other sun protection measures.
Collapse
How to use

Use this as that last step in your AM skincare routine for your face or body. Do not apply any other skincare product over it. Apply liberally at least 15 minutes before sun exposure. This sunscreen is water-resistant and can be used for up to 80 minutes while swimming and/or perspiring before needing to be reapplied.

      I use this when I know I'm going to be out in the sun on a hot day for a while. It's my high spf beach/vacation/outdoor event sunscreen. I love it. I don't break out at all and I'm never sunburned. My husband even googled this product and ordered his own bottle since he bikes outdoors a lot. Keep making this please!

      Fine for Body, NOT for Face -- Caused Breakouts :(

          Love the price! And it's fine for use on my arms, etc., but it caused breakouts on me and my daughter when we used it on our faces, and it stung our eyes as well. Most PC products are wonderful for my whole family, but this one not so much. If you have sensitive skin or eyes, I'd skip it. And there are other body sunscreens out there that are just as effective and comparable in price, so I won't be reordering this one.

          I love this sunscreen, it does not irritate my eyes or face

            I really really like this sunscreen. It's a challenge to find sunscreens that do not irritate my eyes or my eczema-prone face. I normally use PC's Moisture Boost SPF-30 for my daily facial moisturizer, but this is my go-to sunscreen for other areas, and it's also great for travel since it's all I need - for body AND face - and is not greasy or irritating. The greasiness of many other brands of sunscreen can be an issue if I wear my long hair down - ick! - My hair then sticks to my neck and shoulders. In short, if your skin and eyes are sensitive, try this sunscreen!

            I think it actually caused damage to my skin

                I purchased this for a trip to the Caribbean. My boyfriend and I slathered it on our bodies (not our faces) regularly, mostly sat in the shade and would spend at most, maybe an hour in the sun at a time. We didn't burn, or at least didn't get the classic sunburn, but after we got home, we started peeling really badly like we did get burned. Three weeks later we're both still peeling a lot. So while we avoided immediate sunburn, I think that there was damage done and this sunscreen didn't work as advertised or expected.

                  I have sensitive skin, especially on my face. I typically get a tingling, tight or burning sensations with many sunscreens I've tried. But this one does not cause any skin reaction. Just soft, moisturized skin even on my face!
                  Same for my son's eczema. He's has very pale skin that burns easily and this sunscreen works well to protect him without causing an eczema flare up.
                  My husband works outdoors and really loves it too.

                  I just wish I could order some more. It's been out of stock for a little while.

                  • Sensitive Skin

                  I like to slather this on myself, my husband, and my soon to be 10 months old(once I run out of these gifts: (really small-will leave him chalky-Neutrogena Pure & Free Baby Sunscreen, SPF 50, and (thick and dry glob-Acure Baby'S Day Out Kit - 3 - 3 Ct). I can see myself using this on my puggle(Pug+Beagle). It is not that pricey(if you reapply and compare it to the other sizes) but it is smallish I wish it would be in an 8 ounce tube with the same price so I would not have to order it often. We live in Texas so it is sunscreen all year long. I used many brands and sprays and lotions such as: Neutrogena, NO-AD, Burt's Bees, Coppertone, Hawaiian Tropic(has the best fragrance added?), Bullfrog, they are either too thick, leaving a feeling of I-have-been-shrinked-wrapped, or not as good and light as Paula's Choice. Once I rub this sunscreen lotion on my sensitive skin I can feel the difference. I like it that it is not overly perfumed like all the other brands. If I want to wear a fragrance this sunscreen will not compete.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Like all Paula's orders it arrives within 3 days or so of delivery.

                    I tried this as a body sunscreen and I wasn't wowed (I like greasy body sunscreen that has scent). It worked (I didn't get burned) but I shelved it. Then my husband who has just recently decided that I was right & didn't want to get skin cancer or wrinkles had become obsessed with this. Then my sons went to camp and this is the only sunscreen they like to use - it spreads easily, they can apply to their face & doesn't smell. Super bummed because my kid lost his day backpack with sunscreen & now PC is out of stock!

                      I bought this as I have enjoyed every other product from Paula's Choice that I've tried. However, this just didn't work for me. I have pale skin and applied this and let it soak in, and then got in a pool. Apparently water resistant means comes off in the water - I am so sunburnt! The only spot that isn't bright red is between my shoulder blades where I used another brand's spray sunscreen. This was totally ineffective. I'm willing to own that it might have washed off, but sunscreen that doesn't work in the water is pointless. Not a fan at all.

                        This is a sunscreen I return to again and again. I use it daily on my neck and chest. It provides the right amount of hydration to that area. I don't like it so well on my face. It IS wonderfully light and non-greasy, but it's shiny like a big dog. I use the Resist Ultra-Light or the Skin Balancing Ultra-Sheer for mattifying face protection. Sometimes, if I'm working in the garden during the high sun hours, I do use it on my face, but the high SPF stings my eyes. I don't think that makes it a bad product, because all SPF over 30 stings my eyes.

                        I don't have a huge budget, and I don't like to throw a lot of different products at my skin, so I have not tried a large selection of American sunscreens beyond the drugstore brands and PC. I HAVE tried a number of inexpensive Korean and Japanese brands. There are many I use regularly, but none that are any better in my experience than PC sunscreens. She has figured out how to make effective products that aren't heavy like 90-weight gear oil. This makes them worth the price.
