Comments about RESIST Super-Light Daily Defense SPF 30 - 2 oz:
I use this every day and I'm glad I do. I have a darker skin tone (think Filipino) and while this does have a slight white tint to it, it is able to function as a mild BB cream and evens out my complexion by slightly covering up dark/red spots. It does feel a bit chalky once applied, but if you moisturize properly underneath, it shouldn't be a problem. I still have to use a mattifying product over it just because I'm quite oily, but the sunscreen does have its own mattifying effect. I highly recommend trying this out, especially with all the amazing antioxidants it is loaded with. I will continue to using this for a while.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

wanted to love it
from san diego, ca
About Me Minimalist
i am a big paulas choice fan, and i really wanted to love this product, with all of its great ingredients, but it didn't work for me. i have normal skin and found this formula to be very dry, I had to add a moisturizing serum to it for it to last the day without making my skin tight. i also have light-medium skin and found this tint to be too light for me. i had to take a good amount of time rubbing it in to get rid of the white cast it left on my face. overall, it really isn't worth all of that extra time. this would probably work best for those with a light complexion and oily skin.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great Mineral Sunscreen
from Orlando, Fl
About Me Beauty Expert
I have normal to oily skin which is slightly dry in certain areas at the moment because I'm clearing out my pores with a BHA. I bought this RESIST Super-Light Daily Defense for it's mineral sunscreen benefits; chemical sunscreens irritate my slightly sensitive skin. I wear makeup every day (full-coverage foundation, etc...) and am always looking for sunscreens which play well with other products. In my opinion, this does. I actually find that it seems to help with oil-control. I don't think that's a specific claim, but my face is mattified immediately following application and for several hours after. This product is tinted, but when rubbed into the skin, shows no color whatsoever. It does not feel heavy and it does not become greasy. It does not cause my makeup to pill or apply patchy - it doesn't offer a more smooth surface, but neither does it negatively affect the makeup application. Also, I try to use quite a lot of the product since dermatologists recommend a lot more sunscreen for the face than I ever thought. I find that this RESIST Super-Light Daily Defense still blends in and stays matte, even when I apply a lot - like almost a teaspoon a lot. It works just fine if I do that much all at once or if I apply in two layers. The final note I would like to make is that, if you have dry skin, this might be more drying than moisturizing for you.
Service and delivery comments:
I received the RESIST Super-Light Daily Defense in about five business days, and it arrived in good condition.
Orange face by the end of the day!

About Me Beauty Conscious
Texture is excellent, minimize pores and does not accentuate wrinkles, BUT color is too dark for fair skin, becomes darker and orange by the end of the day.

Great but bad color
By The LA Lady
from Los Angeles, CA
This is a great one-step product for when you're looking for a no-makeup look. It went on smooth and looked great... for about 3 hours. By lunchtime, it had oxidized and I looked orange. I'm really disappointed as I've been looking for a legitimate tinted moisturizer (so many of them are just light foundations) and the SPF 30 in this product is great. I'm going to have to toss this product since there's no way I'd step out of the house with this on.

Just needs ONE change...
I like the fact that it has a little tint. I do NOT like the fact that the tint is too dark for some customers. The only reason I do not use this exclusively is that the tint is orange on my very pale skin. For this reason I had to stop buying it. If it's going to have a tint, it needs to be one that truly disappears into all shades of skin. Please work on fixing this, because it's a product that I WANT to love. I am also a VERY loyal Paula's Choice customer, and I cannot live without your BHA and AHA exfoliants.
I use Paula's Choice products for my whole skin care routine, so credit all of them for my skin looking good. However I particularly love this product. I have combination skin and this is just the right level of miniaturization. I was skeptical of the tint so I tried a sample first, but then quickly bought the full size bottle. This product makes my skin look great! I absolutely adore it. I also wear less makeup now that this does such a good job of making my skin look good. I feel more confident leaving the house every day after putting this on. And I love that it has good SPF coverage. I can't see myself using any other daytime moisturizer now that I found this product.

The best tinted moisturizer!
from Ft Myers
This is the best Tinted Moisturizer I have found. I have tried medical grade skin care as well as other expensive brands. This is so lightweight. I just love it!
Surprising new favorite!
By The product lady
from Durham, NC
After trying various sunscreens from Paula's line, I tried a sample of this and liked it. I do not wear makeup, so I was skeptical of the tint. I love the finish - and the compliments I have been getting! If I know I will be outside I wear a chemical sunscreen under this (ex. the Youth-Extend SPF 50), and I feel that my skin has extra protection.

An Excellent Product for Oily Skin
from Somers Point, NJ
I use this product everyday. It's my BB cream. In fact, I no longer wear foundation. I just apply PC concealer where needed after I put it on. It's quick and easy to apply. It's a great sunscreen product. It lasts all day. Actually, it stays on a little too well because sometimes I have trouble taking it off at night, but that's OK. I'm not complaining about that. My suggestion for making this product better is to make it available in more than one shade.
