Leaves my skin sticky
from Katy, TX
About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about Resist Daily Moisturizer SPF 25 - 2 oz:
If I'm not planning to wear make-up on top of this, it's fine enough. However, it leaves my skin feeling sticky. This product is not conducive for applying make-up on top. The make-up can't blend properly on top of this sticky texture. With that being said, this product hasn't given my sensitive, Rosacea-prone skin any problems.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This cream is perfect and has transformed my skin. I see reviews saying it doesn't absorb or is greasy and I am worried it will discourage others. My skin is normal to dry and this softens rejuvenates- and is an spf that doesn't make my skin break out. Please keep in stock!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Heavy and Greasy
from North Vancouver, B.C.
About Me Minimalist
I bought this in error, meant to buy the Super Light Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 in the light blue tube. It was my own careless mistake, so I thought I would just use it up anyway - how different would it be?! Turns out, quite different - much thicker creamy texture that doesn't absorb quickly, the SPF left a white cast, and there was a shiny finish on my skin, even after I applied light foundation. Back to the Super Light for me! (Next step, write a glowing review for that product).

Soothing and protecting
About Me Skin Care Professional
I have been using this for a few days as my last step before my makeup. It is soothing when my skin feels irritated. I have good skin but sensitive and blemish prone hormonally and get some stinging. This takes the stinging away and hydrates my skin. My skin is sometimes dry and oily at the same time and this is not too heavy. I love the feel and wish they had a larger tube! This blends well but can leave a white cast but I don't mind it. Great daily moisturizer especially under makeup. My concerns are and aging prevention as well as breakouts. I've been using PC for about two years and every product is pretty much excellent. If you're looking for a daily sunscreen moisturizer definitely try it.
Sticky and greasy
from Austin, TX
I have very dry skin in the winter and normal/dry skin in the summer. I chose this since it was suggested for normal/dry and I thought it would be lighter than the Skin Recovery. This never soaked in. It sat, heavy, on my face all day. I was greasy and shiny all day from this product. I checked my skin at the end of the day and I could still see and feel the product. I'm not used to ever having a shiny face. It was also slightly sticky. Despite being so greasy, it didn't move around very easily when applying it. It's heavier than the skin recovery lotion sample I have as well, which was also pretty greasy and sticky. This was my first full size Paula's Choice product and I'm so disappointed.

The best I've found!
By PC Fan for Life!
from NB, Canada
This is my go-to holy grail daytime SPF moisturizer. I have severely dehydrated and dry skin in the winter time and the skin recovery SPF just wasn't cutting it. I see reviews that this is too heavy or greasy, but I think those users just need a lighter weight SPF. I do switch to something a bit lighter weight in the summer months. This works brilliantly for the intended market: those of us who truly have VERY dry skin. It does leave a bit of a white cast but I wear it under makeup so that's not a problem. It also doesn't irritate my Rosacea. Please never discontinue!
from Toronto, Canada
I recently bought this and I am seriously impressed! I had tried another PC sunscreen, but it didn't work well for my skin. This however, is AMAZING. It moisturizes my dry skin, provides a good amount of SPF protection (it would be really cool to have this exact formulation but with even higher SPF though), and honestly works so nicely under makeup. I don't use a primer anymore, and when I take my makeup off, my skin looks hydrated - I can tell this product has been working hard!! It's my favourite sunscreen I've ever used. It totally is non-irritating too - which is something I'm always concerned about because I have really sensitive/eczema prone skin. I am so glad I found this product.
White and Greasy
Didn't work well for me. White cast is quite pronounced and I have pale skin. Thick difficult to rub in. With other Paula Moisturizers if I let them sink in for a few minutes they work fine. This one never really sank in. Somehow is greasy but oddly not that moisturizing.

Not for me, I prefer the Skin Recovery SPF 30
from Seattle, WA
About Me Budget Buyer
I bought this during the BOGO promotion for SPF bc my favorite sunscreen (Skin Recovery SPF 30) wasn't included and I thought it would be a good substitute. However, this broke me out the first time I used it. It's much heavier/greasier than the Skin Recovery and I have dry skin. Seems a lot of other reviewers love it, but it just wasn't for me. I will mention that I love a lot of the other Resist products (BHA, 5% AHA, AHA for the body) this one just missed the mark for me.

By Phantom Dog Walker
from Upstate NY
I've been using this product for several years and thought I'd add an updated review. This is my go-to, three season moisturizer. I have dry skin that is also acne prone and this product has never made me break out. It's also the only one that stops my skin from getting dry, flaky, and sore during Upstate NY winters. Yes it's very emmollient at first but I just let it dry before I apply my makeup. During warmer weather, I do need to switch to a more matte finish like Hydralight (or whatever it was just rebranded to).The only thing I would change about this product is that I wish it had a higher SPF, since my dermatologist recommends at least 30. It is kind of odd that this is part of the Resist anti-aging line but has a lower SPF than the other Paula's Choice moisturizers like Skin Recovery.
