      This could even be marketed as a daily sun protection product. It is light and clear. The texture is such that one would like applying it daily. It is also a non irritating SPF product. I have used it by itself and also over my Skin Balancing SPF 30.

          I really wanted to like this but found it to be greasy long into the day. I did not feel it held my foundation well and it also made my face shine in a way that does not seem attractive. I like the sunscreen and the form factor but the product does not work for me.

          Service and delivery was very prompt.

              I bought it for the sunscreen aspect-and now I wear it every day! Honestly, I really don't need foundation because I have no brown or red spots (thanks
              to using Paulas Choice for five years). Anyways there were days I cheated and left the house with nothing on my face because sunscreens are heavy,,
              greasy, thick. I love this-I slather it on as sunscreen and I can't even feel it. Love it. Very nice product

              Amazing primer for my combination skin

                • Sensitive Skin
                • Uneven Skin Tone

                I received this product a few months ago along with a fairly good size order of Skin Balancing Face Toner and BHA/AHA exfoliants. This was a free product in the box and I'm quite impressed with how well this made my face feel and look with all my redness around my nose, enlarged pores and fine lines on my forehead and around my mouth. It has such a lightweight feeling that surpasses any other face primer I have in my collection. I do wear this when I go out on the weekends and leave my less expensive primers for during the week which work as well as this product but this does just a wee bit more for my skin:) A big bonus is the Spf 30 which my other primers do not have. I wear a high spf foundation on top of those primers because I love my skin! The packaging is a cute, small grey metallic tube that's a convenient size and dispenses the right amount of primer to my liking. There is no scent which is also a bonus and once applied it doesn't leave my skin tacky like a lot of other primers do! My pores are noticeably smaller and the fine lines seem to blur out which is also really nice...foundation goes on incredibly smooth and there is no cakiness or dry patches around my nose or under my eyes...Awesome, awesome product!

                  • Sensitive Skin

                  This product is what has made me a daily user of sunscreen! I have other PC sunscreen products, and I can smell and feel them, which makes me not want to use them. I love the gel, though it does feel oily-ish when first applied, however, that truly disappears completely and leaves my face smooth and soft. Added bonus is that it makes my undereye concealer and powder blush go on more smoothly. It leaves no shiny sunscreen look. LOVE IT!

                    This is an amazing product! I have worked with and tried many different primers, including the cult-following primers by Smashbox and Urban Decay. I've worked in the beauty industry for 13 years. Not only does this help to fill in imperfections and keep my makeup on all day, it works alone to blur those imperfections without makeup applied afterwards. I really like the smooth texture and non-greasy feel, as sometimes primers have a strange texture that is left on the skin. A bonus... it has SPF30! Sun protection is a must for skincare, right beside drinking water, eating well, and exercise.

                        Did not aggravate my greasy acne prone skin or my milia. No irritation. Instantly felt my skin soften and smooth out. No greasy feel the entire time I was wearing this. My skin felt great all day. Probably one of my very favorite PC products. I did not use with makeup, but this product inspires me to start wearing foundation again. Thanks Paula! One thing, when you open the tube it comes in, twist off the cap, it wants to flow out. Be careful as it is free-giving and too much can come out.
