    Nice sunscreen, even for dry skin
    • I'm in my early 50s and have dry, fair skin w/yellow undertone. I've been looking for a mineral sunscreen b/c of concerns about the long-term safety of using chemical sunscreens. PC's Resist Daily Moisturizer stayed sticky-feeling; PC's Skin Recovery Lotion SPF 30 is better but leaves a slight white cast & my skin feels a bit dry. Even tho Resist Super-Light isn't meant for dry skin, it feels more moisturizing & leaves a soft, matte finish when dried. When I'm rushed, it is my foundation!

    Never A Compliment until now!
    • I have pimples, cystic acne, oily skin, horrible acne scarring, giant pores, hardened white heads that don't come out, and broken capillaries, the worst right on the tip of my nose. I found out early on that any makeup makes everything looks worse. Until this magical stuff. It is light so it makes things better, not worse. evens out the red, skims over pores hiding them to a degree, esp. with primer under it. wrinkles are hidden. Scars look 50% better. Capillaries hidden with concealer under.

    Best Sunscreen Ever!
    • This is the best sunscreen ever! I am combination skin and this sunscreen is very light, non oily and does not clog pores. I like that it's tinted which provides a little coverage. I do not need to wear foundation at all. The only complaint that I have is that the color is a bit too pinkish for my skin. I have tried many different sunscreens in the past and this one is truely the best so far.

    • This is an amazing product. It provided much needed sun protection since I live at 10,000 feet and the slight tint evens out some of the redness in my skin. It absorbs quickly and leaves no greasy feel. My skin feels perfect all day long. Please continue making this product as it has been a skin saver for me.

    PERFECTION
    • this is the stuff of dreams! it works so brilliantly and does it exactly what promises and more to the point where it's magic. tip for my fellow make up wearing oily skin fellows: my holy grail combo for days when i need my makeup to last ALL day without needing to blot is this accompanied with hourglass immaculate foundation. never lets me down! bonus tip: on no makeup make up days you can get away with only using this and skipping using a base! it evens out the skin even though it's very sheer

    Great Stuff
    • I can't get over how good this makes my skin look. I have a light/med. skin tone that easily burns in the sun. I smooth on a pretty thick layer and just let it sit for a few minutes. It seems to bond with my skin giving it a smooth but un-madeup look. I just feather the edges with my fingers and apply my blush, etc. It really protects my skin and lessens the look of flaws and pores. And it does not irritate my eyes either. Amazing!

    Dream Product
    • This product is a dream. The sunscreen is mineral (which I always look for) and -- I know it wasn't designed for coverage -- but the formula somehow provides silky, light coverage without EVER looking like you have a foundation on. There's a natural-looking evenness and subtle glow to your face after applying. Also love that it's designed to nourish/repair skin. The light formula could be a touch drying for someone with very dry skin, but this is easily remedied by a using a moisturizer first.

    This is perfect!
    • This is the perfect moisturizer to wear under my foundation. It has antioxidants and a 30 SPF to protect against the sun. It doesn't clog my pores or make my skin look shiny. It goes on smoothly and looks so good that sometimes I go without foundation!

    Awesome at first
    • When I first put this on, my skin looked absolutely amazing -- perfect hint of color correction (I'm super pale, combo-oily, and do not like foundation), not too dark, not too yellow, not too shiny. But I found it dried down to a texture I can best describe as "grippy" - my finger did not slide over my skin, and when I tried to apply makeup, the brush would stick. After about 5 minutes, my face started feeling tight and I washed it off, despite the beautiful look.

    the best moisturizer with sunscreen in the whole wide world!!!
    • It contains physical block so I can safely use it on my face and around my eyes. I found the rest of the sunscreen always burned my eyes. The texture is great, non greasy, absorbs quickly and makes my skin feel very comfortable. This has a very light tint but not white or tan. The tint is perfect for me even if I have very fair skin. The slightly matte finish is the best part. It evens out my skin tone and with this, no foundation or powder are even necessary. Saves time and money.

    LOOOOVE IT!
    • I am SO happy I stumbled across this. It is PERFECT. I can use it after my regular moisturizer and not wind up over-moisturizing (I have combination skin). The product is thick and tinted enough that it provides a lovely, even finish that reduces or hides my pores completely and, honestly, makes it pointless for me to use powder or other foundations. BUT the product vanishes. It just makes me look like I have naturally almost-pore-less glowing skin.

    great!
    • Love this sunscreen. The tint works well with my skin and it provides a beautiful matte, smooth finish to my oily skin. It stays matte all day provided I don't sweat it off. I don't like to wear make-up/foundation and this sunscreen's light tint makes my skin look almost like I put make-up on--glowing! Does not break me out, either, and I have acne-prone skin. It can be a little *too* mattifying under the eyes, so I find a touch of moisturizer before and after it sets is helpful.

    Nice!
    • Great moistuizer for summer here in the South where the heat and humidity can wreck havoc with makeup (and hair!) year round. I like the tint which is almost an exact match and when blended out evens out my complexion just enough so all I really need is a bit of concealer for some old acne discolorations. I like the physical sunscreen it provides as well. I don't get the greasy sunscreen feel at all and it dries down without being tacky or sticky like many sunscreen/moistuizers.

    Best facial sunscreen I have found. How about a little tint?
    • Considering the amount of zinc oxide (the best non-irritating sunscreen for my sensitive skin) this is absolutely the best facial sunscreen I have found. I mix it with the almost there make-up for more tint (it has just enough to avoid the white cast of zinc oxide. How about an option that has a little more tint?

    New Favorite!
    • Only con is the tint is a bit light depending on skin tone. Love how silky this feels without feeling wet/sticky. Evens out my skin tone and helps makeup go on SO MUCH BETTER. Been using for a few months tried makeup without this 1x and it was a waste of makeup. When skin lightens in the winter time I may not need makeup, this moisturizer does such a great job! I have normal skin that tends to get oily in Tzone throughout the day. Sometimes acne prone.

    Tint observations: Sample vs. Bottle
    • I really like this product. It controls my oil fairly well and it's nice to find a moisturizer for oily skin that has a physical sunblock vs. chemical. I know there are issues about the tint of the product. I first tried it with a couple of samples. The sample packets are slightly darker and a uniformly liquid consistency vs. the full-sized tube. The full-sized product has a lumpy consistency and its color blends in with my pale skin better than the samples. Just FYI for those on the fence.

    too matte for me
    • Good lotion but I felt it was too matte for me. My foundation didn't go on very smoothly, especially near my eyes, so the lines were more noticeable in that area. I ended up reapplying with an eye cream instead so my foundation would glide on better in that area. Might be good on its own though for a non makeup day

    Again, how about 10 stars?
    • Beyond fabulous. Good skin care properties. Good sunscreen. Every other TM or BB checked out was far too yellow. The color, which basically just blurs a bit, is far more neutral than anything i've seen. Foundations have always broken me out or clogged the pores. Knowing that this is PC, gave it a try. Basically never used foundation, but now i never leave home without this + a concealer. People think I have good skin, after 40 years of ugh! With this, I'm fooling them + getting there!

    Great daytime moisturizer and sunscreen
    • I use this as my last step before makeup and I love the matte finish it leaves on my skin. My skin is fairly oily so this is perfect as a daytime moisturizer with the added bonus of a sunscreen. It does have a slight tint, but it is not noticeable at all once applied.

    Good Sunscreen
    • I requested samples after reading some of the reviews that the product turned orange on your skin. It didn't do that for me. In fact, the tint was barely noticable. I felt it was really nice and controlled the shine on my combo/oily skin all day.

    • I agree with Debbie S. about the tint. I was at first worried about it but it is invisible once you put it on. There is no greasy after feel and leaves a satin matte finish. I like it even better than the Resist daily mattifying moisturizer with sunscreen, because it stays matte much longer, which is great for the summer.

    More Color Options!!
    • This is my first or second review ever. I have cycled through many foundation/sunscreens high end and otherwise and realize that this is literally the best one I have ever tried. However, I have extremely fair skin that also needs a more yellowy foundation. This doesn't look terrible on, it just would be so fantastic to have the perfect color to go with the perfect formulation. I hope Paula's Choice considers expanding the range at least to three colors, perhaps with the existing shade the middle.

    perfect sonscreen!
    • LOVE this product! I received samples of this and I will be ordering a full sized bottle. I have tried many sunscreens, both drugstore and department store and I have never gotten so exited over any of them as I have this! NO irritation on my rosacea skin, not greasy, and the slight tint is great!

    Amending my comment
    • I knew when I wrote my comment that it was not a foundation but a sunscreen. Yes, I CAN read! However, I had despaired of ever finding a PC foundation that does not have those awful yellow undertones that look very unnatural on my porcelain/fair skin (and other commenters with fair skin agreed about the great color). Yes, I have tried every PC foundation and ALL have a yellow undertone which is turns orange after few hours on my combo yet fair skin. This is a GREAT product!

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.
