fantastic surprise for Winter skin!!
By Fancy Francie
from New York, NY
About Me Beauty Conscious, Minimalist
I bought this accidentally. Normally I use the Redness SPF 30 for normal to oily skin year-round. But I'm so glad I stumbled on this product!! It gives my skin an extra surge of moisture for the wintertime. No more dry patches. I don't even need an eye cream! The effect is brightening and makes my face more even-toned so that I barely need makeup. I'll definitely keep this in my winter routine!!
Amazing product worth more than 5 stars
About Me Beauty Expert
I'm very pleasantly surprised by this product. It goes on smoothly and isn't drying like most mineral sunscreens, in fact, it's a nice moisturizer. The thing I like most is the subtle cucumber scent (from the natural ingredients) which doesn't linger. This product makes wearing daily SPF something I look forward to rather than a chore.

Love! Works on my dry, acne-prone, temperamental skin!
By Sarah - Michigan
About Me Beauty Conscious
I was looking for an SPF moisturizer that wouldn't irritate my dry, acne prone skin that has gotten more temperamental as I age. I'm in Michigan and this even works well in the harsh winters!

About Me Minimalist
I got recommended this product because my usual Resist daytime moisturizer was out of stock. The biggest difference I noticed right away is that this product is slightly tacky when being applied. It went on well, made skin dewy, and left a light cucumber-like scent. Like the Resist, it left no white cast. It wore well through the rest of the day. The game changer was when I mixed this Calm SPF30 with my Kevyn Aucoin SSE. Oh my! I've never seen it look so good on my skin. It blew my mind how gorgeous my skin looked. I didn't set the makeup but it last 10 hours work day anyway, without separating or altering the finish. Same experience when I tried mixing with my Cover FX custom cover drops. This is the one I will reach from now on when I want to wear some foundation, for sure. I have never used a primer before, -never understood it nor wanted to add more steps to my routine. I had no idea this product was also a primer. I'm a convert now. A great moisturizer with spf that doesn't leave a white cast AND primer... in one bottle? I love this product!
Service and delivery comments:

Great daily moisturizer
from Buffalo, NY
I use this moisturizer every morning. It's very hydrating, but isn't greasy, so it works well under my makeup. I also appreciate the mineral sunscreen, vs chemical.
Best lightweight moisturizer
By wine gal
from sonoma california
I have been using Paula's Choice for two years now and have noticed a difference in my skin tone. I love this moisturizer! It is lightweight and absorbs quickly. I have used many moisturizers that are heavy or an oil slick on my skin. It goes on "white" but just rub it in. It actually evens out my skin tone with a nice glow and lightly covers marks. After years of testing I have finally found a moisturizer that I love! I think it works well as a sunscreen too - I am outside a lot and have not had issues with sunburn. I do put other sunscreen over it when I am on the water or skiing but this works effectively alone for walking or hiking.
Irritated My Skin
from Sacramento, CA
About Me Skin Care Conscious
I purchased this as my usual sunscreen moisturizer was no longer available. I have sensitive skin and mild rosacea. After one day of using this under my foundation, I began to break out in small pimples all over my face. At the end of the week, I had an inflamed face with large vibrant red areas and very large red mounds. At first, I thought maybe it was combining it with the foundation, so I stopped the foundation and nothing changed. After discontinuing the product for two weeks now, my skin is almost back to normal. However, I find flare ups occur much more frequently than they did before I started using the moisturizer. I am now using it as a sunscreen for my hands. I won't be purchasing another tube and am very disappointed something that sounded like a perfect fit for me turned out to be a total disaster. I continue to use my other PC products which still work well for me.
Delivery was prompt and in good condition. Did not use CS.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Very Emollient, Yet Doesn't Clog My Pores
from Boston, MA
This really helps my dry, flaky skin, but is non-comedogenic for me. And good sun protection.

Great mineral SPF moisturizer for sensitive
from Washington, DC
I've been using this moisturizer for about two weeks, and have really enjoyed it. I had previously used the Hydralight formula for oily skin, but decided to try the Calm formula for dry skin since we're going into the winter. I use it daily, after washing my face and applying a BHA. It's great for sensitive skin, and doesn't sting at all. The moisturizer is a thick, white formula due to the mineral SPF, but absorbs very quickly, and doesn't leave a white cast on my skin. It does a great job of keeping me moisturized, but not greasy or oily during the day. It hasn't broken me out at all. I'll definitely be reordering, and think it's a great mineral SPF option for those with sensitive skin.
