Comments about RESIST Daily Moisturizer SPF 25 - 2 oz:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great product, please make a version without SPF!
from Frederick, MD
About Me Brand Buyer
Great product for dry or normal/dry skin. It would be great if this was offered in two different versions - one with SPF and one without. I already have a face sunscreen that I love and my foundation also has sun protection so while I love this moisturizer, three layers of sun protection is a bit much. I would absolutely buy if there was one without sun protection! That would also make it more versatile for people who don't want to buy 10 products - it could then be used morning and night!

About Me Budget Buyer
This is the most moisturizing SPF lotion I've tried from Paula's Choice. I also use the Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizer SPF 30, which I love. I get dry, itchy patches of eczema on my face, and I'm always looking for a really gentle, moisturizing SPF lotion to wear during the day, so this Resist version is perfect for that. I have an oily T-zone, so I did notice that this was a bit greasy over my oily areas, but I really liked the emollient properties on the dryer areas of my face. I didn't find this had as much of a white cast as the Skin Recovery moisturizer, maybe just because it's a slightly lower SPF? I also liked the fact that this made my skin feel moisturized all day long, even on my neck.

Good SPF But Doesn't Seem Very Moisturizing
from Norristown, PA
I keep trying different moisturizers with sunscreen for daytime use, hoping to find one that feels more like a moisturizer and less like a sunscreen. Unfortunately, this isn't it. It takes a bit to rub it into my skin so it looks and feels like a sunscreen to me. It doesn't feel very moisturizing, and after using it for a few days, I start to get tiny whiteheads on my face.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Love this sunscreen
By K The Hiker
Love this sunscreen and can't live without it. I have very sensitive, acne prone skin with a lot of dryness/sensitivity around my mouth and nose from a bad hormonal acne break out last summer. A lot of sunscreens either dry me out or break me out. This is the only sunscreen I've found that hits the Goldilocks mark. It leaves my skin beautifully moisturized without any resulting breakouts. No stinging and the greasy texture folks comment on I find on my sensitive dry skin just feels moisturizing. It rubs in fine and though it leaves a minimal white cast I found make-up (including powders) go over just fine. Also should note that in the summer I follow with a SFP 50 mineral sunscreen.
Amazing, trust me I've tried it ALL!
from Seattle, WA
The best moisterizer out there by far, worth every penny!

The One I Can't Do Without
By Glow Face
from Vallejo, CA
This is my one main "Go To". It not only does it's job, my skin feels good with it on and has a bit of a glow. I've had many compliments on my skin (without makeup, and I'm 68). Women always ask me what makeup I'm wearing and when I tell them I'm not wearing makeup, they really don't believe me. I have to explain it's my facial lotion that leaves my skin really smooth and with a bit of a glow.I've often wondered if it could be made with a slight tint to help give a little more color, in the winter months.

Good, effective moisturizer with sunscreen
By Lady Lagg
from Albuquerque, NM
This is my go-to everyday moisturizer with sunscreen. I wanted to make a comment that while I love PC skin care products and use this line almost exclusively, I seem to have routine problems with the packaging that don't seem to occur with either drug store or department store brands. In this case, the cap quit closely completely after I was about half-way through the tube. I continued using it, so I don't need a replacement product, but packaging is one area where PC needs to up its game. I've started a new tube of product and got my fingers crossed that this doesn't happen again.

Not good for underneath make-up
from Vancouver, BC
I tried it underneath make-up and it makes foundation or concealer look very caky. Without make-up I look too greasy, although I have dry skin. I could probably only wear this on weekends when I am not doing anything.

Not What I Hoped For
from New York
I had high hopes for this daytime moisturizer. This is the second one Ive tried from Paula that I didn't love. I am in love with the new eye moisturizer (although I think it's overpriced) and her Retinol but I can't seem to find the right moisturizer. This moisturizer is very thick but not in an emollient way, just....thick. I rub it into my fingers to try to get it warmed up so it will spread easy, but it's stubborn and in order to do so, you pull on your face too much! It also leaves a white cast on your face which is unflattering. It does its job and stays put (I can feel myself washing it off at the end of the day) but it's just not what I'm looking for. If you like a lightly moisturizing product or something for the beach, this is for you. If you want something more emollient, keep looking. If they made the eye cream in a large size for your face, I'd be the first one on it!
