Perfect, if it works with your skin tone

Comments about RESIST Super-Light Daily Defense SPF 30 - 2 oz:
I gave this a just okay rating a while back, because I was frustrated with the shade not matching my skin. Everything else was absolutely perfect. I had a mostly unused tube from many months ago that I recently tried again, and now my experience is very positive. The difference is that it's winter, and my skin can handle the shade. I have warm, golden skin, but it's paler in the winter, so it's easier to blend with any light to medium shade, even if it's too not quite right. Right now it's great, so I'm actually going to repurchase. I will just have to switch back to another product come summer (which seems to be much of the year in Southern California!). I still wish Paula would make a couple different shades though!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My holy grail!
from Vancouver, Canada
I have never reviewed a beauty product before. For me,this is the best daily use product for my very oily skin. I love the subtle tint-there is no colour but it seems to brighten my skin tone. I have now stopped wearing foundation and only use this together with some concealer on any spots and in the under-eye area. Even those high end cosmetic counters that I sometimes visit, have stopped trying to sell me foundation. My skin (which can be acne prone) looks fabulous! I use this alone with some added Shine Stopper on my nose. I am good to go for the day with the occasional blot mid afternoon. I hope this is never discontinued!

LOVE this but it is too dark for pale skin
By Pale Lady
About Me Brand Buyer
This is the one and only sunscreen I have found anywhere that meets my needs. I have super sensitive skin and this product does not irritate it. It glides on nicely and makes skin appear smoother. It is an excellent mattifying makeup primer for my oily skin. It works better for this purpose than many products actually marketed as primers. lovely product...its only fault for me is that it oxidizes to a salmon color on my pale skin so I have to be careful not to use too much or I will look crazy. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make and untinted version!
Point of view changer
If you have ever had any problem or issue with previous sun protection products, then forget all those and focus on this treasure. It even soothes my small flares and hydrated som dry patches. With som loose powder on top,it gave me enough cover without needing foundation, I just applied concealer under my eyes. It's different from other stuff in the market,it's full of nutrients and antioxidants, it's a treatment of its own. Love love love
Keeps oil at bay and makeup in place!
I absolutely love this product. I have combo, acne prone skin with an oily t-zone, and this product works wonders as my sole daytime moisturizer. I have a physical job and am usually left with a super shiny face by the end of the day, but with this moisturizer I had very minimal oil after a long day! It also kept my makeup in place and kept it from breaking down around my nose and mouth, which usually always happens to me. I love the texture going on, very light and almost gel like, and very easy to blend in. The slight tint is subtle and it helps to even out any redness on my face. It does leave a slight grippy texture on the face once dry but it is not uncomfortable in any way. I also love that it's mineral based and gives immediate sun protection. A+

About Me Beauty Conscious
I decided to start using SPF since I walk to work everyday. I was surprised that there was a tint to it, but it has completely replaced the step of applying mineral foundation for me. It may be the PC BHA liquid exfollient that has contributed to this also, but I am so pleased with how this makes my face look. The color is perfect for my Caucasian skin, and the SPF 30 is nice. A lot of foundations say that they are a certain SPF, but you have to add a huge amount of product.

Best sunscreen but ...nano-Zinc Oxide?
I have nothing bad to say.The sunscreen is lightweight, smooth, moisturizing but not oily at all.Plus, it blurs pores and evens out my skin tone excellently.But my only concern is that the Zinc Oxide contained in this product could be nano sized.Is it?
A little magic in a tube- one of my top 3 products
from Dallas, TX
I love having sun protection that has the added bonus of appearing to even my skin tone. As I've aged I've found that traditional liquid foundations result in drawing attention to my wrinkles and enlarged pores, but not so with this amazing product. On top of that traditional liquid foundations tend to rub off on clothes or sweat off. Not so with this amazing product. It acts like a moisturizer soaks in well while evening out the complexion and looking very natural.I would compare this to Radical Skincare's tinted SPF mineral product but the price point of Paula's Choice is way better, you get more, and the dewey finish minus any ashen-ness has a nicer finish than Radical's. That said, I have gone through a big hormonal shift in the last year and while I think the thickness of this product is perfect, those with oily skin may feel differently. I love that the tint appears to even the skin tone and it's a natural look with the bonus of I hope I never have to live without this awesome sun protection.

Superb Product; Only one small downside
from Alexandria, VA
About Me Beauty Expert
I LOVE this sunscreen. My skin is picky about two things: foundations/bb creams and sunscreens. I've tried almost every PC sunscreen, tried her BB cream, and have tried other brands, but out of all of them this one comes out on top. I honestly would describe this more as a BB cream because of how it acts on skin. When I saw that it was tinted, I got a little worried; especially since when it initially goes on it looks shiny and gross. Once it settles into the skin however (about 10 or so minutes) it leaves behind a satin matte finish, almost looking like powder. It is also resistant to oil and sweat compared to other stuff I've used. While it doesn't resist all day (I don't think any product does really) during winter I get about 7 hours before oil/sweat starts to show through, and maybe 5 hours during summer. When used in combination with the serums, toners and etc, I didn't even bother with foundation, just used this and a light dusting of powder.Now even though I recommend this highly, I don't use it anymore even though I love it so much. I work jobs where I move around a lot and sweat, which means every now and then I'll be touching my face to wipe something off. Even though this stuff stays on pretty well, say if I absentmindedly scratch an itch on my face or blow my nose, I'll get the wiped off residue of the sunscreen on my clothes, tissue, whatever I'm using. I follow the "reapply sunscreen" rule very seriously. Problem with this though is that this isn't the kind of sunscreen I can slap on without looking at my face; I need a mirror and some time to make sure it's rubbed in properly. If I don't do that I'll be left with visible tinted brow hair or streaks on the face. Maybe if I worked office jobs it wouldn't be such a hassle, but since I'm on the go moving around constantly, I need a sunscreen that requires less maintenance. All in all great product, and I will always recommend it highly even if I can't use it myself.

Amazing but can't buy because of the tint - PLEASE take out!
from Washington, DC
This is the best moisturizer for oily skin - works like a dream, dries to matte finish, stays like that the whole day, no blotting required. Would love to purchase indefinitely but the tint is just awful - it dries to blotchy orange almost immediately, and it's also much too dark for my skin. I see the same comment everywhere - please offer another option without tint! I've been using another (worse) product for a couple of years and check back every couple of months hoping PC has a color-free option - would stock up immediately and spread the word!
