Broad spectrum SPF 50 helps prevent premature aging while helping to improve skin health and hydration. Leaves a soft, dewy finish and provides superior anti-aging benefits.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.

How to use
Use as the last step in your AM skincare routine. Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. If not applied liberally, you’ll need to reapply every two hours after skin is exposed to direct sunlight. If you plan to swim or perspire, you must apply a water-resistant sunscreen.

    I cannot tell you enough how I love this moisturizer. The 50spf is amazing for keeping sun spots from sneaking back after working so hard to diminish/vanish them. It melts right into my dry/combo skin without making me look greasy and makeup just glides on without getting all balled up or sticking to dry patches. I have used other PC moisturizers that I've liked, but this is Love. A definite keeper and part of my everyday routine.

      I'd been using this cream for 3+ months and love it. It's easy to apply on the skin and it makes my skin feel very nice and not sticky. I used the RESIST Daily Moisturizer SPF 25 before and I definitely like this new cream better. The Resist Daily Moisturizer SPF 25 is thicker in consistency and it feels heavier on my skin.

        After trying a series of sunscreens that all felt sticky or greasy when applied (and always returning to my favorite Moisture Boost product here), I feel like I hit the jackpot with this daytime moisturizer. Great smooth feel, very light, no sticky/tacky feel at all. Excellent. And the added peace of mind knowing I'm using a good sunscreen! Paula's Choice gets it right again. Thanks

        Not a cellular defense replacement

        By Tammy

        from Raleigh, NC

        Pros

          Cons

          • Irritates Skin

          Best Uses

            Please think twice about purchasing. After two days of use, my skin is bright red, painful and peeling. My skin is not sensitive and I have worn chemical sunscreens at much higher SPFs than this, and this burned and dried out my skin terribly. I am also a regular nighttime retinol user and have never experienced a reaction to a product like this.

            Cellular Defense was my favorite moisturizer - this is NOT a replacement. I would not even consider this a moisturizer.

              I use mineral sunscreen most of the time but I wanted to try this because of the high spf. Surprisingly it doesn't burn at all. This is one of the few chemical sunscreens that I can use in my sensitive skin. The texture is great too. Easy to spread and works well under make up.

                  Thank goodness I only purchased the travel size. I have been using Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizer and was going on vacation and wanted extra SPF protection. I bought the travel size of this and used it the first time and had a burning sensation around my eyes and cheeks. I tried a second day and got the same burning sensation. I don't consider myself to have sensitive skin either. I've used the old formula and did not have any issues but not sure what else PC changed with this formula. I went right back to the Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizer.

                    I was so excited when this new reformulation came out. I used to use the old version religiously (mixed half and half with the Resist Superlight Wrinkle Defense to cut down the shine) and was so sad when it went away. Unfortunately this new version burns my face badly, and I end up with red, blotchy skin for the rest of the day. I have tried it several times now after putting it down for a few weeks in between, and every time it still burns (even mixed with the Superlight Wrinkle Defense). If Paula could figure out what's causing the burn and remove it, I would be ever so happy to give it another try!

                      I ordered the travel size of this product so I could check and see if I like it. I am very fussy about SPF products. The verdict: I love it! It is non-greasy, as other reviewers have said, and absorbs very quickly, leaving a matte finish. The fact that it is not overly moisturizing is a plus as far as I am concerned; I prefer a lightweight moisturizer for day, and heavier one at night. There is no white cast, and it absorbs very quickly. It mixes well with my foundation to make a tinted moisturizer. This is a great product!

                        I tried to like this moisturizer. I really did. It feels great when you first put it on, but once it gets absorbed it makes my skin feel painfully dry. I'm going to have to find something else.
