Comments about RESIST Smoothing Primer Serum SPF 30 - 1 oz.:
I have run the gamut of sunscreens. Some are oily, some are hard to blend, some don't work at all with makeup, some are white, some have too little spf to be of use.....well, you know this story. I typically use the skin balancing sunscreen spf 30 and have been happy with it until now. I was immediately intrigued by the idea of a serum containing sunscreen and so I purchased it. If you've used a PC serum before, you'll see that the texture is pretty similar to her others. For that reason, I was a little concerned because I find most PC serums fine for nighttime, but way to heavy for day. I mixed this a bit in my hands first, then quickly blended it on my face. I go have coffee, then put on my makeup. Honestly, this HAS to be about the best PC product I've ever used. Makeup just glides right over it (I used a sponge and blot foundation for application). Once it has dried on the face, it's weightless and fabulous. So, so thrilled with this product. Just purchased another to make sure I have plenty for summer, but a little goes a very long way. Great new edition to the PC collection!!!

About Me Trendy Style
Wonderful; best primer ever. My make-up looks better. I just have to make sure to add enough moisturizer so my foundation doesn't look dry and cakey on my skin. This is a win.
It took almost a month, but PC team got int ouch with me and told me they were fast shipping another batch of the items I ordered and I got it in a few days, thank you! The original box then came and they said I could keep it. Great service!

Best primer I've tried
from Winters, Ca
I have tried all different types of primers from high end to low... This one is the best I have tried. I actually see a difference in my makeup application. Best of all its spf30 and it doesn't make me appear as if I have any sunscreen on my face! I'm not oily or super white from the sunscreen. It's an amazing serum. Perfect for days with or without makeup when I know I'll be out in the sun. My makeup lasts all day usually so I can't say for that but I will say I love how nice and easy my makeup glides on after using and again the spf! I usually hate sunscreen on my face with makeup but this is awesome. I have very sensitive skin and usually choose foundations without sunscreen due to breakouts. I have not broke out with this at all. Try it if you are on the fence. I have received so many compliments on my makeup since using it.
Product arrived quick as usual!

Not For Me
from Austin, TX
About Me Natural Style
I was not used to using a primer and was suprised at the oil texture and feel. I initially used about a pea size amount for my face, but quickly learn that I need less than that. I have combintion skin and am oily in the t-zone. After cleansing, I use toner, then apply a serum, then a moisturizer with SPF 50, then this primer. It feels a bit too oily for me under my foundation and it doesn't seem to make a differnce to how my makeup goes on or how long it lasts. Since this is an extra step for me, and I'm not seeing a difference, I will not repurchase.
Delivery, as usual, was prompt and I received my product in good condition.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Love this primer!
from Pittsburgh, PA
I love this serum. I have used the It Cosmetic's serum and I will say I like this one much better. I like the way it makes my face feel really smooth. I will definitely be purchasing this again. It is a great product. Compared to It Cosmetic's I the the price of this primer is fair. My Resist moisturizer has an SPF in it and I use that with this to make sure I am getting enough SPF on my face.

The perfect solution for sun protection!
from Vancouver, Canada
I don't love using sunscreen (even though I know I have to) because my face always feels sticky or looks grey (and some of them irritate my skin). This primer is the perfect solution. It goes on smoothly, doesn't feel heavy, it doesn't irritate my skin and offers sun protection! What a great idea! I'm a huge PC fan, and this is one of my favorite products.

Expensive but awesome!
from Buffalo, NY
I have just started using this product and I am super impressed! I have dry acne prone skin that is mildly sensitive. In winter my skin gets flaky especially around my forehead. This primer completely smooths my skin which allows my Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturizer (check it out!) to blend beautifully. I have gotten so many compliments from friends and family about my skin since using both. The only complaint I have is that it is kind of expensive for the a mount you get. With that being said, a small dab will cover your entire face and neck. Thanks to Paulas Choice and Beautypedia I have completely overhauled my beauty/skin routine and have awesome skin for the first time in my life!
from San Jose, CA
I was hesitant to try this because of the words "matte" in the description (dry skin) and the fact that a couple of other reviewers mentioned that it rolls off when applying foundation (I have had problems with Paula's other sunscreens rolling). Luckily they offered a sample - and I loved it! "Matte" doesn't mean drying and I haven't had any problems with it rolling off. My makeup stays on better, I don't get dried flaky foundation spots anymore. If you are hesitant to try this like I was get the sample size - you won't regret it.
from North Florida
I cannot believe that this luxurious serum protects my skin from harmful rays without leaving a white cast on my skin. It feels weightless, blends beautifully, and absorbs perfectly. I am thrilled with it and will use it as long as Paula has it. I have delicate, fair skin and this is the sun protection I have wished for. Thank you Paula.
What is this sorcery??!!!
I tried this product as a whim thinking nothing could get me to switch from Mac's Prime and Prep. I fell in love at first application! I am one of those people that Paula tries to warn. I didn't take care of my skin, loved the sun worship (even though my job keeps me inside most of the time). So, my skin is not the best at age 53 and I am trying to do some damage control with products with SPF. This makes my skin so dewy and my make-up go on like butter! I am now hooked for life and doubt anything will knock this product of the pedestal....and I am getting sun protection!!
