I LOVE THIS SO MUCH

Comments about RESIST Super-Light Daily Defense SPF 30 - 2 oz:
If I had to pick the best skincare or complexion product I've ever used, this stuff would be it. We need SPF daily, and this is so light you can massage a ton for adequate sun protection without ever feeling remotely close to greasy. The result is skin that looks polished and a little evened out, you only need to add your foundation to really red areas. The formula is not hydrating for dry skin, it's perfect for oily, combo and even normal. So in the winter months, as I have combo, I mix this with a more moistuzing SPF to find a level of moisture that's in the middle or use moisturizer under and it's still perfect. I'm on my sixth bottle since I started using this a couple of years ago. I personally reccomend using the resist toner then follow with this for really exceptional performance, your skin feels and looks amazing with just these two products. Can't reccomend any higher.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My Holy Grail daily facial sunscreen!
By Julie, LME,COE
from Seattle. WA
This is by far my absolute favorite daily facial sunscreen. It's very easy to apply, feels like nothing on the skin, and because it's lightly tinted, there's no white cast. This tint evens out my skin tone, wears beautifully under makeup, and can even be worn on it's own for a very casual makeup look. While it doesn't control oil, it does not feel greasy and heavy on my skin at all. This is a true all physical sunscreen that provides excellent UVA/UVB full broad spectrum protection. I'm a licensed Master Esthetician (WA), and I have access to many professional and MD only brands so I've literally tried them all, but this sunscreen is by far the best on my extremely oily, acne/clog prone, and now menopausal skin. I really believe all skin types will love how this feels and wears.

Not for medium-dark skin
By Sarah Red
from Stanford, CA
About Me Budget Buyer
This seemed like it would an ideal sunscreen -- tinted, neutral, physical-only sunscreen packed with antioxidants and mattifying for oily skin, with incredible reviews. But alas. Sigh. It wasn't the worst, but it just wasn't something I could use after several days of testing.Using a proper amount of sunscreen make this feel somewhat like a paste, especially towards the end of the day. And, no matter how much I rubbed in, the sunscreen was wayyyyy too light for my neutral-toned NC 40-42 skintone. Universal tint...maybe for Caucasian skin, but not for anyone darker than NC35 (even that may be pushing it). It also made my concealer/foundation really odd and greasy by the end of the day. Wish I could've loved this because of the fabulous formulation, but the search for a light, protective sunscreen for my tan acne-prone skin continues! (Also I'm relatively sure this broke me out, but that's just how my skin is -- super reactive).
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Perfect, if it works with your skin tone
By Robin H
from Los Angeles, CA
I gave this a just okay rating a while back, because I was frustrated with the shade not matching my skin. Everything else was absolutely perfect. I had a mostly unused tube from many months ago that I recently tried again, and now my experience is very positive. The difference is that it's winter, and my skin can handle the shade. I have warm, golden skin, but it's paler in the winter, so it's easier to blend with any light to medium shade, even if it's too not quite right. Right now it's great, so I'm actually going to repurchase. I will just have to switch back to another product come summer (which seems to be much of the year in Southern California!). I still wish Paula would make a couple different shades though!
My holy grail!
from Vancouver, Canada
I have never reviewed a beauty product before. For me,this is the best daily use product for my very oily skin. I love the subtle tint-there is no colour but it seems to brighten my skin tone. I have now stopped wearing foundation and only use this together with some concealer on any spots and in the under-eye area. Even those high end cosmetic counters that I sometimes visit, have stopped trying to sell me foundation. My skin (which can be acne prone) looks fabulous! I use this alone with some added Shine Stopper on my nose. I am good to go for the day with the occasional blot mid afternoon. I hope this is never discontinued!
LOVE this but it is too dark for pale skin
By Pale Lady
This is the one and only sunscreen I have found anywhere that meets my needs. I have super sensitive skin and this product does not irritate it. It glides on nicely and makes skin appear smoother. It is an excellent mattifying makeup primer for my oily skin. It works better for this purpose than many products actually marketed as primers. lovely product...its only fault for me is that it oxidizes to a salmon color on my pale skin so I have to be careful not to use too much or I will look crazy. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make and untinted version!
Point of view changer
If you have ever had any problem or issue with previous sun protection products, then forget all those and focus on this treasure. It even soothes my small flares and hydrated som dry patches. With som loose powder on top,it gave me enough cover without needing foundation, I just applied concealer under my eyes. It's different from other stuff in the market,it's full of nutrients and antioxidants, it's a treatment of its own. Love love love
Keeps oil at bay and makeup in place!
I absolutely love this product. I have combo, acne prone skin with an oily t-zone, and this product works wonders as my sole daytime moisturizer. I have a physical job and am usually left with a super shiny face by the end of the day, but with this moisturizer I had very minimal oil after a long day! It also kept my makeup in place and kept it from breaking down around my nose and mouth, which usually always happens to me. I love the texture going on, very light and almost gel like, and very easy to blend in. The slight tint is subtle and it helps to even out any redness on my face. It does leave a slight grippy texture on the face once dry but it is not uncomfortable in any way. I also love that it's mineral based and gives immediate sun protection. A+

About Me Beauty Conscious
I decided to start using SPF since I walk to work everyday. I was surprised that there was a tint to it, but it has completely replaced the step of applying mineral foundation for me. It may be the PC BHA liquid exfollient that has contributed to this also, but I am so pleased with how this makes my face look. The color is perfect for my Caucasian skin, and the SPF 30 is nice. A lot of foundations say that they are a certain SPF, but you have to add a huge amount of product.
Best sunscreen but ...nano-Zinc Oxide?
I have nothing bad to say.The sunscreen is lightweight, smooth, moisturizing but not oily at all.Plus, it blurs pores and evens out my skin tone excellently.But my only concern is that the Zinc Oxide contained in this product could be nano sized.Is it?
