Not a good replacement for Resist spf
Comments about CALM SPF 30 Moisturizer for Normal to Dry Skin - 2 oz:
Item arrived quickly and well-packaged but it has a bad smell. I have used the Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 25 for years and was really sad when it was discontinued. I don't think this is a good replacement for the Resist moisturizer andI hope they come out with a better replacement soon.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I want to love this but I smell like a dead fish. Seriously
By Erin P

About Me Beauty Conscious
I want to love this product. I love how it feels. I love how it applies. I love how it protects. Really it's the perfect product for me! EXCEPT it literally REEKS. It's weird because the smell became stronger with time too. At first it was a subtle fishy smell but as long as I didn't put it on my nose or chin I could deal with it. Within days it was full-on rotten fish odor. I've been trying to use it up by putting it on my chest and back but I can't even take the order there. I'm also worried about other people thinking I smell like a rotten fish so I put on a TON of perfume the days I try to wear it. All in all, it sucks that I'm basically wasting the product on areas that aren't my face due to it's smell.
I miss Resist SPF25

About Me Minimalist
I bought this as a replacement for the Resist Daily Moisturizer with SPF25. It's not nearly as moisturizing, and despite its claims that it is for redness relief, it actually irritates my skin. It is not as emollient as the Resist either. I will use this until I can find a suitable replacement for the Resist.
Great ingredients but smells and feels like sunscreen :(
I tried a sample of this and it wasn't for me. It smells like sunscreen which I can't stand, it also feels a bit chalky after it dried and a bit drying but took a while to absorb. It went on smoothly though and it did reduce redness. I like the idea of a mineral sunscreen but I suspect this is the cause of what I didn't like about it. I can see how this product would work well for others though.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was so fast! Packaging was great.

This product was suggested as an alternative to the discontinued Resist SPF daytime moisturizer in the Blue tube.It absorbs OK, but leaves my skin feeling taught and tight from about 30 minutes after application. It does not feel very moisturizing at all.Very disappointed (as I'm a big PC fan). Returned for credit
Delivery is always on time
Not Enough Moisture for Dry Skin
By roxy's mom
from New England
My combination skin tends to flush easily, especially in winter. So I tried the entire CALM collection. Although it may have calmed my redness down a bit, it left my skin feeling uncomfortably dry. It's difficult to blend, leaves a white cast, and the smell reminded of diaper rash cream.
from Princeton, NJ
I was looking for a moisturizer with a SPF in it, so it was either this or RESIST Super light daily, but after reading the reviews on the RESIST product that the tint did not match well with most skin tones, I chose this one. I tried it for the first time today, and I didn't realize how thick it was - took me awhile to have to absorb, and the end result still made my face too "moisturized." I was shiny and felt greasy. BUT, throughout the day, my face started getting dryer and tighter until I finally had to wipe my face down with a wet towel.
Deliver was prompt. No issues.
Best-ever physical sunscreen for face
About Me Skin care junkie
There is no such thing as a perfect physical sunscreen for your face. But this comes darn close. The white cast is very, very faint. The finish is a little shiny, but not excessively so. It'll give your face a lovely glow if your skin is dry. If not, you'll probably prefer to use a touch of powder or foundation on top. My only complaint? I wish the tube held 3 oz!
Service and Delivery are always incredibly prompt and helpful.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not a Replacement for Resist Cellular Defense Daily SPF 25
I have dry, fair and sensitive skin. I have used the Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 25 for quite some time. This product is not available and the Calm Redness Relief SPF 30 was recommended. The Redness Relief stung when I put it on and did not moisturize like I need. My skin felt tight and dry. My foundation looked splotchy and I had patches of dry spots. Adding more or the Redness Relief caused my skin to sting so much that I had to wash my face.
Product was delivered promptly and in perfect condition.

My everyday sunscreen
About Me Beauty Conscious, Minimalist
I use this usually right after cleansing my face so it does get absorbed pretty quickly. I agree with some of the other reviews, it could be a bit more moisturizing. But if you give your skin a few to take it in, it's good.
Delivery is always on time if not early.
