    Got me to wear sunscreen
    • I have combination skin that turns all over oily in summer. Anything I put on tends to feel uncomfortable after an hour. Makeup migrates on the oil slick that is my face. That said, I really enjoy the feel of this light-weight lotion. The tint works great with my pale pink skin tone and I actually feel good that I'm protecting myself from sun-damage. This was one of my first PC purchases and I will continue to use.

    Disappointed
    • This product made my skin turn a weird pinkish colour. It felt heavy on my skin the entire day and I couldn't wait to take it off. The colour transferred onto my clothes, as well. I am not a foundation wearer and this was more like a foundation. I was always aware of its uncomfortable, odd colored appearance. Will return this for another sunscreen in the otherwise excellent PC line....Donna

    very nice
    • Hi, Last week I ordered and received a few samples of the Resist Super Light Daily wrinkle defense. I'ts a super, super product!!! However, as my skin is quite dry, I wonder if it will work out for me. I still have the Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer but I wanted to switch to the Light Daily because this one is a bit heavy for my skin. For now, I use the light version on the T-zone only. Do you have another product which is a combination of the two?

    Great texture but pinkish tint
    • I started buying your products since the day you were accredited by leaping bunny as cruelty free. I really love your products!!! The texture of this sunscreen is great! It's the first sunscreen that stays matte on my combo skin even under makeup. Sadly I cannot wear it because of the pinkish tint. It doesn't match at all my yellow skin tone. I wish you could make a yellow version of it (a bit like coola matte tint bb cream) or at least a version without a tint. Thank you!

    Wow
    • My face feels clean and dry and normal with this on, not greasy after awhile. The tint mutes out acne hyper pigmentation spots and the colour/tint works for me - I have light olive toned skin. I'll need more hydration for the winter I think, though. I'll add in another moisturizer underneath this I think. My concealer really sticks to my face and doesn't move now. Again - wow.

    So close! And yet...
    • I had super high hopes for this sunscreen. Zinc oxide with no white cast and a texture that wouldn't feel like peanut butter? Huzzah! Unfortunately, although I really love the formulation and the texture, the tint is far too orange for my skin. I'm decently pale, not Snow White, and my face looked somewhere on the border between a carrot-juicing fanatic and an Oompa-Loompa. That being said, if you guys happen to make a paler version, I will stock up on this sunscreen like there's no tomorrow.

    The One
    • The best I've ever used. It's high in zinc oxide, but it doesn't cake on the skin between my nose & mouth. Doesn't burn my sensitive skin or my extremely sensitive eyes. The slight tint is perfectly natural. It works for my dryish skin, and the matte finish is wonderful. Shine is the enemy of "mature" skin--it highlights every flaw. So glad to find this natural-looking matte. You have to love your sunscreen--it's part of your face every day! This makes me feel like I have beautiful skin!

    This is it!
    • Previously I used Hydralight Shine-Free Daily Mineral Complex with SPF 30. Last summer I found it to be good at moisturizing and sun protection, but I wondered if there was another product that would be lighter weight and less likely to make me look even more pale than I already am. I tried this Resist moisturizer as a sample and man am I glad I did! It's very, very lightweight and the slight tint is perfect for me. I use a light powder over it and I'm out the door. Love, love, LOVE this product

    Don't Ever Change or Discontinue this Beauty Balm
    • I've gone through an easy dozen trying to find something suitable for my very fair, sun-sensitive, acne-prone, combination, aging skin. The majority of them have left me orange (as they oxidize thorough out the day or were just too dark to begin with), they left streaks or the product pilled, and or they required a skilled makeup artist to blend in. THIS IS THE IT product when it comes to tinted sunscreens. Please do not ever change or discontinue it. Sure offer other shades, but please keep.

    • I have pretty dry skin so I would have never thought to buy this, but a friend of mine just happened to tell me about it one day. Being a skincare guru, she referred to this as her "HG" product. Within a few days, I was trying it out for myself. I put PC's Moisture Boost day cream on first and then this on top. I LOVE it. I hate wearing make up on a daily basis so this is just what I've been looking for. This does exactly what it claims- smooths skin tone and creates a gorgeous matte finish.

    Male perspective
    • I love how this makes my face feel. It provides just enough moisture that my skin needs and it also helps even out my skin tone (I have fairly good skin after a round of accutane and PC products!). My only complaint is that this gets into my hairline when I apply and it is really hard to get out, especially in my beard/eyebrows (I understand most people buying this probably don't have a full beard!) Even with this, I will probably be buying the full size in the near future

    Meh
    • I've gone back and forth on this SPF. After it has dried it leaves an orange color to the face which is not desirable. And the tint is not "universal" as it shows up on my very fair skin. It also feels a bit grimy on the face after it has been on a while. And I feel like I need to wash it off. Not pleasant. But I don't think it has ever broken me out. Though it may have on my jaw. Overall though I won't repurchase because of all the bad that outweighs the good.

    I want to love it but.....
    • I received a lot of compliments when I use this product but then I started to notice the tint made my face look really white. I'm medium tone so this is still giving me a white cast as most SPF does. Also, this is starting to dry out my cheeks (I have combination skin).

    Great, but not one-shade-fits-all
    • This is a wonderful tinted sunscreen with a great texture, except that I can't use it as generously as one should use sunscreen, because it leaves my face a shade darker. If this came in a slightly lighter shade as well, and if there was a version for slightly drier skin, it would be my one-stop product for hasty mornings and travel. Please make this! I would buy it forever.

    Best sunscreen so far, but had some hiccups at the beginning
    • When I started using this product, I was not used to the light texture and the tacky feeling. I even left a super bad review. However, after using this for 4 months, I really appreciate the extraordinary mattifying effect and coverage this brings. The tint is very sheer but it makes my skin looks more even, a bit like I have a foundation on. This last very long (about 3 months for me). Just a note: the product gets thicker near the end so it's not too comfortable for the last 1 week.

    I love it, but...
    • The formulation of this is absolutely divine. I would absolutely consider this my holy grail of sunscreen BUT it's just a shade too dark for my quite fair skin. PLEASE consider adding a lighter shade of this exact product. I so wish I could use this because it's the only sunscreen that does not make my skin sensitivity flare up and burn. I would love to see more suncreens with only zinc oxide as an active, it's the only thing my skin can tolerate with no problems.

    • I ordered a sample of this and I really like it so far. I like the color and the way it dries matt. I'm use to moisturizers that leave my face feeling greasy so this is a relief. I also love the fact that it fights wrinkles while also providing SPF. So far so good with this one.

    Great at muting down Hyper-pigmentation
    • My review, from a guys perspective. I recommend that you purchase a weeks worth of samples first. (3-5 packets) Strengths: -Mutes hyper-pigmentation spots (Doesn't provide full coverage) -Sun protection -Doesn't clog pores -Mostly matte finish (slight shine in direct light, but it makes me look human) Weaknesses: -Pink tint can be too strong -Dries almost like a mask -Smell isn't the best (It's Paula's Choice, they're fragrance free! Most of their products don't smell too great)

    Too Sticky
    • I love Paula's Choice. I have been using the products here since almost 4 years. However, here is one critical comment on this product, Super-light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30. "SUPER"-light daily wrinkle defense is not light at all. It also says "moisturizer" + spf at the bottom of the bottle but it actually makes skin dry. One star is even too much. When I see anybody who worries about their skin, I recommend Paula's Choice. I love you, Paula's Choice, however, not this one, sorry.

    Best SPF for combination skin
    • I have probably tried all of Paula's moisturizers over the years and this one is my favorite so far. Right now I'm alternating it with the Resist SPF 50 but I found that one to be too drippy and drying. If you have combination skin that's prone to having dry areas try this as your daytime moisturizer.

    • This is the best sun protection I've ever used! It makes your skin looks good, slightly tinted, I don't need a BB cream any more, that's amazing. If you are oily acne-prone skin, have some acne scar you want to cover them, BUY IT!

    like but don't love
    • This is certainly the best sunscreen for oily skin that I've ever tried. But, I still don't love the texture and the way it looks after a few hours under my makeup. It seems to get kind of slick and funky, unlike my nighttime moisturizer that I use on cloudy days. But it's not that bad and you gotta wear sunscreen! ;) I've just ordered the Clear ultra-light daily fluid to see if that works a bit better for me or not.

    Best Sunscreen I've Found So Far!
    • I love this sunscreen! I have used a variety of tinted moisturizers over the years, but so far this is my favorite. I have combination skin, prone to breakouts, and large pores. This product has a matte finish that I really like due to acne scars and oily skin. I can use this one its own or as a primer for my mineral powder foundation. There is a little bit of an odd odor at first, but it soon goes away. Wears well over the entire day, feels weightless, and washes off easily at night.

    One of my favorite products
    • I love that this moisturizer gives me both sun protection and skin treatment. I also adore the silky smooth texture that dries to a soft matte finish - perfect alone for casual wear or as a foundation primer. It's wonderful for my combination to slightly oily skin. My only wish? That it came in a few more shades - please add at least one or two shades Paula's Choice!

What makes this product unique?
Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 is a daytime moisturizer with sunscreen designed for combination to oily skin with signs of aging. Its multi-purpose formula not only protects skin from sun damage, but also fortifies it with potent antioxidants to repair and stimulate collagen production for firmer skin. You will see a more even skin color, fewer visible lines and wrinkles, and the return of a younger healthy-looking glow.

This gentle, mineral-based formula has a sheer tint that works beautifully for all skin tones, whether worn alone or under foundation. An amazingly silky lotion texture leaves a soft matte finish that perfectly preps skin, allowing makeup to apply smoothly and evenly (no primer needed).

Pure, refined zinc oxide provides remarkable broad-spectrum protection without making skin more oily or triggering breakouts. It is perfect for sensitive skin or rosacea and great for use around the eye area. Daily sun protection is crucial for preventing wrinkles and brown spots, while still allowing skin to look fresh, even, and healthy.

This product is 100% fragrance-free.

Who is this product for?
Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 is best for combination to oily skin, and also suitable for sensitive, breakout-prone, or rosacea-affected skin. Ideal for those struggling with wrinkles, brown spots, and oily skin plus breakouts.

Should I reapply Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 during the day?

For casual wear, meaning less than four hours total time out in the sun, it is not necessary to reapply sunscreen as you will be protected all day.

The FDA recommends you reapply sunscreen every two hours which is an option to consider. Alternately, you can touch up your sun protection by applying a pressed powder with sunscreen, such as Paula's Choice Healthy Finish with SPF 15. Those spending the majority of their day indoors do not need to reapply—you will be protected all day.

How is Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 different from Skin Balancing Ultra-Sheer Daily Defense SPF 30?

Although both products provide excellent broad-spectrum sun protection, Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 does this via the mineral sunscreen zinc oxide while Skin Balancing Ultra-Sheer Daily Defense SPF 30 uses avobenzone and other sunscreen actives.

Both formulas offer anti-aging benefits: Each contains antioxidants to help defend skin against signs of aging as well as cell-communicating and skin-repairing ingredients to help skin look and act younger.

Texture-wise, the Skin Balancing formula is lighter and more fluid (it's a thin lotion) whereas Resist Super-Light has a incredibly sheer-cream texture. Either will feel wonderful on combination to oily skin, while the Resist Super-Light is the more mattifying of the two.

How is Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 different from Hydralight Shine-Free Daily Mineral SPF 30?

Both use mineral actives for gentle broad-spectrum protection, and both are excellent for combination to oily skin. The Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 uses only zinc oxide while Hydralight Shine-Free Daily Mineral SPF 30 uses a blend of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.

The Resist Super-Light contains a slight tint to counteract the white cast inherent in mineral sunscreens (it doesn’t provide coverage and nearly vanishes after a few minutes on skin). The tint is ultra-sheer, and is perfect for any skin tone.

Is Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 the only Paula's Choice moisturizer with sunscreen that provides anti-aging benefits?

Definitely not! Every Paula's Choice daytime moisturizer with sunscreens as well as our "body" sunscreens (which can also be applied to the face) provide broad-spectrum sun protection and contain antioxidants for enhanced defense and antiaging benefits.

Is Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 suitable for breakout-prone skin?

Yes. Despite containing 13% zinc oxide, this formula was designed so that the zinc oxide "floats" over skin rather than settling into pores. This is accomplished via silicone technology, which also enables the zinc oxide to be cosmetically elegant—a difference you will see and feel with each use!

Is Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 suitable for rosacea?

Yes. Not only is the formula fragrance-free (like every other Paula's Choice product) it contains the gentle mineral active zinc oxide plus proven anti-irritants and antioxidants that work to reduce inflammation. When inflammation is reduced, skin appears less red and looks more even.
