Additional Information

Why is it different?
RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 perfectly couples a water-light texture with proven broad-spectrum sun protection, but this advanced formula goes further by including key antioxidants that research has shown skin needs to feel firmer and look younger and more even toned.

Collapse
What does it do?
Provides effective UVA/UVB protection plus hydration for a healthier, younger-looking complexion. Its satin-matte finish leaves skin feeling smooth and hydrated, never slick or greasy. It is a daytime anti-aging moisturizer those with oily skin will want to apply every day! 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 as the last step in your AM skincare routine. Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. If you don’t apply liberally, you will need to reapply every two hours after your skin is exposed to direct sunlight. If you plan to swim or perspire you must apply a water-resistant sunscreen.

    Comments about RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50:

    This is my favorite daytime moisturizer and sunscreen. I love the SPF primer too but sometimes my skin needs just a bit more slip and this is perfect. I hate the feeling of sunscreen particularly on my face and I also don't like when a sunscreen feel pasty or tight. This is absolutely weightless and SPF 50 is awesome! I use this all over my face and neck and also on my hands. It is a wonderful product. Thank you!

      Comments about RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50:

      I've used this product for a few months and it has become my holy grail of sunscreens. I have a medium skin tone with an oily t-zone and combination skin everywhere else. Generally sunscreen makes me more oily and makes me break out. This sunscreen is different. It doesn't leave a white cast on my skin like most sunscreens do; it doesn't cause any breakouts; and it doesn't make my skin appear more oilier than normal. It's a definable win for me and i would repurchase again and again.

      First, I want to say that I LOVE Paula's Choice products. They're the best skincare products I've ever found. Sadly, this one didn't work at all for my face. I applied it very carefully and lightly around the eyes, taking precautions not to get it too close and washed my hands after using it, but it still eventually gets into my eyes and stings and makes my eyes water until I have to go take my makeup off. Also, it didn't look matte at all on my particular skin--it felt greasy and looked oily and didn't work under my foundation. I'm not returning it because I can still use it on my neck and hands, but next time I think I'll try the Skin Balancing SPF or the Resist Ultra Light SPF. You're still my favorite, though, Paula.

        Comments about RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50:

        This is the answer to my prayers. Seriously. I've used the Resist for Combination/Oily skin in the past, but I used the face wash and toner followed by different Paula's Choice products, and it worked, but not great. My skin looked good, but a bit irritated. After a little experimentation, I decided to come back to Paula's Choice and give this sunscreen a try, even though my skin has normally been adverse to chemical sunblocks at such a high level. I was attracted to the green tea and oat bran extracts, which I already know are soothing for my skin, and this product didn't disappoint. While some reviewers have knocked the watery consistency of this product, I consider it a major plus. It's the first sunscreen I've ever used that felt more like skincare than sunscreen. I was able to use the Anti-Oxidant Serum, the Clear Skin Hydrator, AND put this sunblock on top and have my skin come away feeling like... my skin, only better. Not greasy, not oily, not shiny. I can wipe the excess on the backs of my hands for protection and not even know it's there. I even put a mineral SPF 50 BB lotion afterward for a little extra makeup coverage (since I live in Hawaii) and it never got greasy. Paula's Choice is the first line of products I've ever used that truly, completely addresses the needs of oily skin instead of simply not exacerbating them. I had just come off of 12 hours of flying when I washed my face and tried these products for the first time and I came away looking fresh and glowing. The packaging is elegant and almost as Instagram-able as any of the other major brands, if you care about that stuff (I don't). It was like magic, or witchcraft. I'm floored. I just might be a permanent convert.

          I love using this during the summer. Yes, it does give off a bit of a sheen upon applying it, but it's not a problem for me. I have normal to dry skin.

          Comments about RESIST Daily Fluid SPF 50 - 2 oz:

          It is a fine alternative to name brand drug store sunscreens with a 50 SPF rating. I can get those nasty white bumps with one application of a thick sunscreen not specifically made for the face: this one is light & sheer, so no clogging. There are 2 caveats: it can sting if you get it too close to the eye, which really is a user issue. The real problem is that the product is very runny, and it drips all over my bathroom and clothes just by holding it with little pressure on the tube. It would earn 5 stars if the developers could make the product less liquid or change the packaging.

            I've been using sunscreen forever because it is a requirement -- not an option. This one works well. I put it on and my face is ready for makeup. It leaves my skin nicely matte. I like that it has no color; sunscreens with color seem to leave me with too much yellow. Love this!

              Comments about RESIST Daily Fluid SPF 50 - 2 oz:

              This was my 3rd Resist Sunscreen try. The first (Cellular Defense) left my skin feeling sticky and looking chalky. The second (Super-light Wrinkle Defense) dried out my face, even forming stretch lines. Applied over serum, it worked better, but both of the above sunscreens cause tiny white bumps on my face. Then I tried this one, and I really liked it. It doesn't leave a white or pasty film on my face. Let's your complexion show through. It was not oily, not drying, not shiny, or so overly matt that I looked dried out. No white cast or pasty look. I really liked it, but about
              5-20 minutes after application my face starts to turn red, and remains so for up to an hour. I don't know why, but eventually had to give up on this one. Skin Balancing Ultra-sheer Daily Defense works best for me. Very similar, but with the tiniest bit of coverage, which I actually like. This is a great product...just doesn't work for me.

                  I got this last year and I shelved it thinking it wasn't working and thought I might of been allergic to it. (Turns out I was allergic to something different NOT this) So, since I knew I wasn't allergic I decided to give it another go. This stuff is amazing. I love the spf but my face is in a wonderful place when I use this. My skin is perfectly hydrated. Not too oily and not dry. It is wonderful!

                    I've been using this daily since I purchased it. I used this previously when it was called mattifying fluid. This formula is improved from that one. I stopped using it because it was too greasy. This one doesn't feel the same. I have no slickness like before. It's not matte, more natural. I use it daily beneath my long wearing foundation. I let it absorb/dry for 5-10 minutes then apply my foundation. I've stopped using my primer and use only this. It doesn't make my foundation streak at all and I'm less oily after a 12 hour shift than before.
