Best sunscreen ever used
from HCM city, Vietnam
About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about RESIST Super-Light Daily Defense SPF 30 - 2 oz:
Best sunscreen I have ever used hands down. Please do not ever ever discontinue this product ever, PC team !! For some reason, I'm sure that I cannot use anything with Titanium Dioxide in it and thank God PC made this sunscreen. It's wonderful for me. The only thing that I would like to be better is the color. I'm Asian so I'm quite pale, so if PC team can have this one with a little lighter/brighter tin to it, it'd be more than perfect. Oh and maybe....can it also have higher SPF? Thank you for everything PC team! And yes I did recommend this to a few friends of mine.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A strong option so far
from Sunnyvale, CA
About Me Minimalist
Trying this out with a couple of samples! My impressions so far:Don't love the feel on initial application (sits on top of the skin instead of sinking in) but this gets better eventually and it feels nice once it's dried. Unobtrusive tint, not noticeable at all. No discernable smell. Sweated off a little quickly on an average California day walking down the street.
Perfect Base to Build On
from North Central USA
I use a small amount of this product in combination with the a tiny bit of SKIN BALANCING Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum with Retinol, and BEST FACE FORWARD Foundation SPF 25, applied all together! It works for me!
Fix the tint!
from Coronado, CA
Use under foundation and to calm skin irritated by Retin A. Love the feel, glides on, sinks in fast with no residue. I hate anything sticky and that includes most all sunscreens and moisturizers, but this leaves my skin comfortable and calm. However, I dislike the color and it oxidizes to orange - PC please get your chemists on this or simply take out the tint! Expensive compared to what PC used to charge for products in the beginning.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Love! I use this everyday and it keeps oil at bay while not being to dry on my dry patches. Absorbs quickly and isn't greasy at all.
If only it wasn't tinted!
from Columbus, OH
The texture is excellent for summer when gardening, etc. But I won't buy any more because it stains clothing and is sometimes impossible to remove. If I use it on my face, I have to be careful to wash my hands and then I need to apply a different sunscreen to my hands. Also one must use care when opening it to avoid spills.
Too dark for very fair/redhead complexions
from San Jose, CA
About Me Beauty Expert
I so wanted this moisturizer to work for me. The high level of zinc with the light consistency make this an excellent everyday source of sun protection. However, the tint is too dark for my very fair (redhead) skin. Everytime I've tried using it people have asked me what that brown/yellow streaks on my face are! It would be wonderful if this was offered in an untinted version, or perhaps a light / med / dark version for different skin tones. Because it's a great product in every other way!
I have been a loyal PC customer for a good 10 years and absolutely love the products I have used until now, making my problematic, acne-prone skin manageable. However, after having had my child, my skin has become more sensitive and I don't seem to tolerate the Youth-Extending Daily Mattifying Fluid/Clear Ultra-Light Daily Fluid anymore (Bummer.. I had stocked up on those during a sale). I have blonde hair and you can see makeup in my hair, so I need to leave a gap between the two. A gap which still needs protection. Apart from that I need something when I go running, which I do without makeup. As the Resist Super-Light Daily Defense is mineral based, I thought I'd give it a try. The good thing I can say is: I absolutely tolerate this, no reddening of the skin whatsoever. It also seems to do a good job at keeping the sun at bay. But.It feels terribly tacky on skin. I hate the feeling on my eyelids so much, that I can't go without powder on my eyelids. I also have to powder my nose and chin to keep them from glaring, and this is for running, where I prefer keeping it simple.It is difficult to describe what is is exactly, that I dislike about how it looks. Contrary to how the Barely There Sheer Matte Tint (which I absolutely adored while it was available!) evened out my skin tone, without looking the slightest bit made up, this product makes my skin look made up, without evening out my skin tone in the least. I most definitely cannot pull off "I woke up this way" with this product.Although the tint does nothing to even out my skin tone, it is still too much to be able to spread it all the way to my hairline, as it will leave my hair stained.All in all, a very disappointing product.
Effective for daily use
About Me Skin Care Professional
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.

wanted to love it
from san diego, ca
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.
