Love, love, love this sunscreen!!!
By Tammy the believer
About Me Brand Buyer
Comments about HYDRALIGHT Shine-Free SPF 30 - 2 oz:
I apply this as my day cream everyday after cleansing. It is extremely mattifying for my very oily & sensitive skin; very hard to find another like it!! Only sunscreen I have found that doesn't make me breakout, but actually heals my skin as it protects and moisturizers it all at the same time. Can't say enough about it!!This is my first time writing a review for Paula's products even though I've been a loyal customer for quite a while now. I just had to make it known what a treasure this product is and a blessing to have found such a great product. I read in another review that this may be discontinued; I hope this is not true and if it is please reconsider; I'd really hate to start my search all over again after finally finding the one!!! Thanks so very much Paula; your products are the greatest I have found anywhere, and will remain a loyal customer for life!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

All around awesome sunscreen for everyday
from Fort Worth, TX
This is a fantastic broad spectrum sunscreen. It is especially great for sensitive skin or oily skin. I can rub it in around my eyes without burning or redness. I have used it under make up but it rubs in so well you could skip makeup over it.

great for running or outdoor sports
from Cleveland, OH
About Me Budget Buyer
I normally use the Skin Recovery day lotion, but tried this as something lighter both for weekend long runs and for a lighter alternative for summer. So far it's working well for me. I sweat a ton while out running and I have not had any issue with this stinging my eyes. It is also not super thick and clogs my pores like my previous summer running facial sunblock. I'm allergic to sunblock except for the mineral sunblocks so I'm really glad to find so many varieties of products I can use and that actually work without making my break out!

Best Sunscreen Ever!
from Los Angeles, CA
I got this as a sample in my most recent order and I'm soooo picky about sunscreens. It is virtually undetectable! The application is so smooth! That is a plus if you want to wear it under makeup! so sad to learn that its being discontinued....Nooooooooo!! :(

what a pleasant surprise
By Shiny Girl
from San Jose, CA
I received this product in a sampler and was surprised by how non-greasy it is and how fast it dries on skin. I have oily skin and it is very had for me to find a sunblock that controls shine. This product actually does what it promises. Good job, PC!

Thought I couldn't wear SPF every day before this!
I have really bad reactions to regular sunscreens, and I always thought I just could not wear SPF every day, like my skin needed at least one or two days a week to take a break. I can wear this every day though! The white tint I feel goes away quickly so I'm not bothered by it.

I've been on a quest for facial sunscreen, and have been going through samples of PC products because I haven't had good luck with other brands. I am olive complected with "extreme" combination normal to oily skin and some sensitivity. I tried Resist Mattifying spf 50, Skin Balancing spf 30, and Hydralight spf 30. I felt a little like Goldilocks and the three bears...All three sunscreens were great for daily use: lightweight, absorbed quickly, left no white cast, non-greasy, just a touch of moisture for skin tending toward oilyness, didn't add to facial oil production throughout the day. All three are somewhat liquid in texture, but not too thin. This means they are easy to apply and don't feel mask-like as other sunscreens might.Here is where the three differed:Resist Mattifying spf 50 (physical sunscreen)--soothing, did not sting eyes, but left a sheen ie, was not mattifying on my skinSkin Balancing spf 30 (chemical sunscreen)--ok on face but burned around my eyes, mattifyingHydralight spf 30 (physical sunscreen)--soothing, did not sting eyes, and mattifyingIn my case Hydralight was the "just right" solution to quell my sensitive eye area and provide some mattification. I also really loved the super light weight of Resist Mattifying and Skin Balancing. I think if the Resist product didn't leave a sheen, that would be my HG sunscreen since it provides a bit more protection, is non-irritating and has great anti-aging ingredients. Skin Balancing was also great as a lightweight handcream, leaving my hands feeling silky and smooth with no shine. For now, I'm going to stick with Hydralight as my full purchase, but all three are worthy of sampling.
Moisturizing while still being shine free
By Becky - 26
I truly love this product. I have combination skin (very dry around the mouth and oily everywhere else). Shine free creams from the store dry my skin and make it feel tight initially, then forces me to become really oily to compensate for the drying. This product is moisturizing from the beginning which helps improve appearance of lines and imperfections, but is non oily and shine free. I mix with foundation concentrate and I absolutely LOVE this product and I reapply throughout the day without it feeling or looking heavy. Paula, please never change it!
My favorite sunscreen of all time
from Brooklyn, NY
I use this sunscreen every day and I love it. It's safe for my acne- and rosacea-prone skin, layers seamlessly underneath powder makeup, provides the recommended minimum SPF 30, is mineral-based, and not tested on animals. It doesn't get any better for a daily sunscreen. I hope they never stop making it!
By Opal the Sunscreen Buyer
from New York
This has been my holy grail sunscreen for a year. It leaves my skin nourished and protected. It is also one of the only sunscreens that doesn't break me out or cause rashes (thanks to the fragrance-free, pure mineral formula). However, I do think it is pricy for 2 ounces, given that it goes by quickly with daily use and doesn't offer the most cosmetically elegant texture. It is a truly excellent product, but I will wait to repurchase until I have a 20% off coupon.
