Comments about RESIST Smoothing Primer Serum SPF 30 - 1 oz.:
It has a really smooth texture. It has both a watery feel and also a silicone-y feel when blending it out. I use it to replace my regular SPF moisturizer.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Perfect For Me
By Canadian Girl

About Me Classic Style
I love this stuff. It suits my very dry skin perfectly. I do not use foundation so this is my last step before heading outside. It is by far the best 3 in 1 product i.e. looks after fine lines, looks after moisturizing and with a significant SPF what is not to love. I do put on a bit more than recommended but it melts into my dry dry skin to a beautiful soft finish. It even makes my dry hands feel moisturized.

Not for me, I'm afraid
I love Paula's products, but this one isn't for me. I have dry skin that's prone to breaking out, which means I use an oil-free foundation. I use a primer to help the foundation go on smoothly, but this primer absorbed so quickly and completely it made my skin even drier. The foundation went on worse than when I use no primer at all.
I love, love, LOVE this SPF primer/serum!
What I like best about this new SPF primer is its ability to blend with my foundation products - always an issue with my daily makeup routine. Thank you PC for coming up with a product that truly meets, actually, exceeds expectations.

This product definitely did NOT enhance the wear of my foundation, which is Paula's Choice Healthy Finish Pressed Powder. One drawback was that there was a noticeable shiny appearance to my skin after the product had dried. I found that this product also caused the powder foundation to sort of melt into this primer serum giving the appearance that I never bothered to put foundation on that day! In short, it did everything it was NOT supposed to do. No, I absolutely would not recommend this product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not For Me
By Vee Vee
from Central California
Glad I got this as a travel size . I was so hoping this could be a replacement for the Obagi product I have been using but unfortunately it won't be. The smell is very strong and it doesn't go away.I feel it on my skin and have had break outs following its use
Service and delivery comments:
No problems with delivery
Creates a great canvas for foundation, with added benefits!
Created a perfect smooth canvas for the Serum Foundation. Works very well together, along with my regular PC skincare routine. Love that it has SPF as well.

I am really really impressed!!!
By Rio Grande Lady
from Rio Grande Valley TExas
I Have used a high end primer for forever, one with a SPF, but some days it held all day, and sometimes not. Sometimes another SPF sunscreen would not work with it. I broke down and bought a sample of this, and I kept waiting to be disappointed, and I am not. It seems oily but it is not. My makeup stays on most of the day, and just some blotting if I have to go out at night. I really really like this, I am not a young hipster, (63) and have combo skin, and I live in a high humidity area, and it still works. HIGHLY RECOMMEND A TRY. I am purchasing the full size.
Best finish providing sun protection under make I have found
Gives a very smooth finish with a nice texture. I have no issues with heaviness or oiliness, especially compared to ANY other sunscreen I have used under make-up. A wonderful game-changer for me. I have searched my whole adult life for sun protection I could live with as part of my make-up routine.

Oily skin beware!
from Houston, Texas
I've used Paula's products for years and have loved just about everything I've gotten. I've never written a review before for any products but I had to write one for this primer warning all the other ladies out there with oily skin, Beware!! After using this product for a few days (and not changing anything else in my Paula's Choice routine) I broke out terribly. Will stick with Paula's Choice Shine Stopper Instant Matte finish, keeps me oil-free under my make-up and no breakouts.
