Will buy again!

Comments about RESIST Daily Moisturizer SPF 25 - 2 oz:
This was the 3rd PC product I tried. I was a little skeptical due to some of the reviews, but I am very happy with this daytime moisturizer. My 2 criteria: must be a good base for wearing makeup and have an effective SPF. I wear this everyday under my CC cream and it looks great. The only con I have is that it takes a few minutes for it to soak into my skin. I wish it was available again to order.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The only sunscreen I will use around my eyes
from Vancouver, Canada
This sunscreen is perfect for me since it never irritates my eyes and doesn't have any zinc oxide. (I have a sensitivity to zinc oxide and can't use it) The formula is thick and I normally only apply to my whole face in the fall and winter. In warmer seasons, I will use this around my eyes only. It's really good for people like me who have hayfever that constantly makes their eyes water. I hope it is not out of stock for too long as I'm not sure if there are any other sunscreens that just use titanium dioxide available.
I'm disappointed. I tried this because the one the one I've used for years was discontinued. This formula feels very nice but it breaks me out.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Does not feel like any other sunscreen!
By Scott in Central Ohio
from Worthington (Columbus), Ohio
About Me Beauty Expert
This was the first sunscreen I used from PC (I purchased the entire Resist line), and I still find it the most gentle of all; at the same time it doesn't feel very heavy. It comes out sort of like a souffle. It spreads easily on my skin, and after a few minutes any white cast vanishes. At the end of the day it doesn't feel like something heavy or slightly irritating (like some sunscreens do), nor does it appear to increase the shine on the oilier parts of my face. What's more, it does help smooth out the rough patches, and it doesn't sting on my sometimes irritated skin, even the shaved part(s). I can wear it under my eyes and it helps make my under eye area look like I've had more sleep than I really I have (I have chronic insomnia, and get an average of 16-20 hours of sleep per week). I do admit that in the summer, during very hot weather, I wear this only on the dry areas of my face and use a different PC sunscreen on my nose, middle forehead, and any other oily area; I also use the fabulous "Shine Stopper", gently dabbed on top, to help hide any breakthrough sweat/oil. My second fave PC suncreen is the Resist Youth Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid, which I like because it's so thin and fluid-sort of like whole milk-but I have to be careful because it's chem based, and I normally cannot use such formulas. However, so far it's been okay. This, however, is still my fave.

About Me Beauty Conscious
Had high expectations since I've used Paula's products for years. Thought this would be the ideal combination of moisturizer and sunscreen. Unfortunately, it not only didn't provide adequate moisture for my dry skin, but it irritated the skin on my neck and upper chest. Should have stuck with the Skin Recovery Replenishing Moisturizer, one of the best moisturizers I've ever used.

I wouldn't be without this product. My skin is very sensitive to zinc - it totally dries it out - so although I wear and love Paula's red skin relief spf30 from June to Sept (summers are hot here) as soon as it gets a little cooler my skin flakes and looks and feels dry and awful from the zinc - so I switch to this which has no zinc in it only titanium dixoide - such products are hard to find. It is moisturising without being overly so and non irritating and I don't know where I'd be without it for most of the year.
Best Moisturizer Ever
from Gig Harbor, WA
My skin can get dry, especially when I use retinol or AHA, and this moisturizer is perfect for me! I tend to get flaky if my skin is dry, and I have had a hard time finding a product that doesn't exasperate the flaking (and yet avoid greasy feeling). This moisturizer is perfect... I just love it and will never stop using it! There is a slight white cast when you first put it on, but it blends in nicely and works perfectly under makeup. I highly recommend this product and have never found any other moisturizer that can come close to how this performs. Five stars and two thumbs up!

Not Good Under Makeup
from Richmond, VA
About Me Minimalist
Product makes my face look too shiny and causes my makeup to slide around my face. Not good! I had high hopes for this product and now I feel like it's back to the drawing board to find an SPF moisturizer that not only keeps me from breaking out, but also now feels lightweight and absorbs easily so my skin and makeup don't look greasy.

My favorite moisturizer
By Skin Nurse from LA

About Me Skin Care Professional
I have been a Paula Choice fan for a long time, and this is my first review. Many reviews bring up the problem of this moisturizer feeling sticky and greasy, however, I don't see it this way. This moisturizer has been my go-to for the last five years, and I can't get enough of it! At 45, people tell me I look 35, and I owe a lot of this to Paula's Choice and especially this moisturizer. With my concerns of aging, I WANT to feel the moisture on my face! This product feels delicious on my skin, and it truly helps diminish fine lines. There are people who are matte-types who don't like to feel the product on their skin, so this product is not for them. But I don't like the matte moisturizers at all, and I always return them. Another thing I want to stress is this: This moisturizer is the first product that I have been able to use that efficiently protects me from the sun without an allergic reaction!!! For years, I couldn't wear any sunscreen without having to take a trip to the doctor for a steroid shot because I was covered with welts. If you don't like feeling product on your skin, don't buy this. If you are like me and like feeling moisturized throughout the day, try this out. I LOVE feeling product on my skin throughout the day, and this moisturizer has been my all-time favorite!Paula's Choice, PLEASE don't ever stop making this product! Thank you for helping my skin look amazing!By the way, I am a nurse and esthetician, and I haven't found skincare solutions that impress me as much as Paula's Choice.

This is a good sunscreen on its own but does not work well under makeup. It stays very tacky. I love most of Paula's products but this one missed the mark for me.
