    too matte for me
    • Good lotion but I felt it was too matte for me. My foundation didn't go on very smoothly, especially near my eyes, so the lines were more noticeable in that area. I ended up reapplying with an eye cream instead so my foundation would glide on better in that area. Might be good on its own though for a non makeup day

    Again, how about 10 stars?
    • Beyond fabulous. Good skin care properties. Good sunscreen. Every other TM or BB checked out was far too yellow. The color, which basically just blurs a bit, is far more neutral than anything i've seen. Foundations have always broken me out or clogged the pores. Knowing that this is PC, gave it a try. Basically never used foundation, but now i never leave home without this + a concealer. People think I have good skin, after 40 years of ugh! With this, I'm fooling them + getting there!

    Great daytime moisturizer and sunscreen
    • I use this as my last step before makeup and I love the matte finish it leaves on my skin. My skin is fairly oily so this is perfect as a daytime moisturizer with the added bonus of a sunscreen. It does have a slight tint, but it is not noticeable at all once applied.

    Good Sunscreen
    • I requested samples after reading some of the reviews that the product turned orange on your skin. It didn't do that for me. In fact, the tint was barely noticable. I felt it was really nice and controlled the shine on my combo/oily skin all day.

    10 Stars
    • I agree with Debbie S. about the tint. I was at first worried about it but it is invisible once you put it on. There is no greasy after feel and leaves a satin matte finish. I like it even better than the Resist daily mattifying moisturizer with sunscreen, because it stays matte much longer, which is great for the summer.

    perfect sonscreen!
    • LOVE this product! I received samples of this and I will be ordering a full sized bottle. I have tried many sunscreens, both drugstore and department store and I have never gotten so exited over any of them as I have this! NO irritation on my rosacea skin, not greasy, and the slight tint is great!

    Didn't work for my skin
    • I am so surprised by the excellent ratings for this product. When I used it I found that it made my skin feel like fly paper - so sticky! I also did not like the tint perhaps because my skin is fair. Unfortunately, I do not like it and have chosen a different product instead.

    Best sunscreen yet!
    • This sunscreen feels very lightweight and doesn't leave any white cast (doesn't require extra-careful blending) or shine behind. I have light yellow-toned skin (MAC NC 25 for those that are familiar) and the tint blends in really well for me. Even though the product looks rather salmon-colored, it doesn't look odd once applied and seems to be imperceptible. No breakouts or itchy skin (can happen with mineral sunscreens for me), either! Well done, PC!

    Not for all skin tones
    • I love the way it feels on my skin, it's just as light as I wanted and pretty mattifying as well. My only problem is that my skin tone is darker (same color as the actress Kerry Washington for reference) and this gives my skin a white-ish gray cast. It's definitely not for all skin tones. I wish there was an option for a darker tint then I would give it 5 stars.

    A yellow tint would make this product perfect
    • This is a nearly-perfect sunscreen for my sensitive, combination skin. My only criticism is the pink tint intended to disguise the white cast. Seeing as how so many of us go to great lengths to avoid foundation that emphasizes any red tones in our skin, why not make the tint a yellow-based one instead? Rosacea sufferers will rejoice!

    Don't be scared off by the tint
    • I have reviewed this before. I'm on my second year of using it every single day. It is superb. I just want to add that I have very fair skin, and the tint is not even the slightest bit of a problem; it vanishes on the skin and doesn't leave any actual tint behind at all. If I put it on half my face, it looks just like the other half that does not have the product on it. Please don't stop making this. It is HG for my aging, sensitive, breakout prone skin that looks fantastic these days. 10 stars.

    Please, never stop making this product!
    • I love the SPF 30 protection and the fact that it is tinted is icing on the cake! I do not find the tint to be too dark or orange - it actually has more of a pale pink tint that gives a radiant glow. I am a woman in her sixties (early 60s!), with few wrinkles and dark spots (thanks to Paula!), and I find that even the lightest-weight foundations aren't that flattering on me. This product really is "feather-light," and all the coverage I need. Love, love, love it!

    please make a tint-free or lighter tint for fair skinned folks.
    • I have very fair skin. I really prefer physical sunscreens in general, and zinc oxide in particular. This is the best sunscreen I have ever used. This sunscreen has a satin finish. I live in high-humidity Georgia and can use this alone in the summer. I can wear it over moisturizer the rest of the year. The finish is a perfect alone and as a primer. I must add my voice to other commenters, please make one with no tint or a lighter tint for fair skinned folks like me. The tint is too dark.

    My one true must-have!
    • If I could only have one item on a deserted island, this would be it, without question. It is that good! I am 46, I take very good care of myself, and I would not even think about going one day without this superior product. Like Paula, I don't buy into hype and have always been a stickler really good ingredients. For daytime, it does not get any better than this....excellent skincare, broad spectrum spf30, and a slight tint that melts into any skin tone. Plus, it's very reasonably priced!

    Want To Buy Full Size But Color Is So Unnatural!
    • This is very similar to Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45, both in texture and unfortunately in color, except this product is more mattifying than Dr. Jart's (which is a good thing for me). I had ordered multiple samples of this, and it's a lovely base for mineral powder makeup, as well as liquid foundations, and it definitely prolongs the wear of my foundation! The color is just so unnaturally pink and dark! Admin. : will Paula's Choice make this sunscreen in more colors anytime soon?!

    Thanks for your review! At this point we are not planning on making this product in another variation of its current tint. We're also not planning to offer an untinted version, as internal testing revealed this would not work due to a strong white cast most would find to be a deal-breaker.

    Worsening blackheads
    • Love this for the coverage - I don't even need foundation. Tint was perfect for my skin tone (fair). No orange cast at all. The only reason why it gets 3 stars is that I believe this is the cause of my blackheads worsening (oily/very oily skin). I use the Skin Balancing line with Resist BHA exfoliant and when I swapped my Skin Balancing moisturizer + SPF for this product, after 1-2 weeks I noticed my blackheads were reappearing. It may be too emollient for me. Disappointing :(

    A Fantastic 3-in-1!
    • I adore this product: it's a light moisturizer, a primer for my oily skin, and, at last, a comfortable sunscreen that does not irritate my rosacea (most do)! It does not pill, I find I'm using less of my $$$ foundation, and the finish lasts all day. Sure, the tint isn't a perfect match for my NC15/20 skin, but I appreciate that the unattractive white cast of other mineral sunscreens is minimized. What a pleasure to replace three products with one excellent, well-priced alternative. Thank you!

    No more breakouts!
    • I have tried everything under the sun (no pun intended). Every other sunscreen else left a greasy residue on my skin and caused breakouts. I use to use neutrogena liquid sunscreen and it was water based but that has been discontinued and is hard to find. This is the replacement love it.

    Not bad, but sadly and definitely not for me.
    • My skin is sensitive to sunscreens. Unfortunately, this product was no exception and made my skin break out in tiny bumps all over my face, which were like extremely clogged pores. I'm sure it would be great for the right person. The consistency of the formula is good; not watery, lightweight, and not greasy. The tint was a bit on the red side; nothing that a light powder can't hide (I'm yellow-based). No sunscreen smell, and left a good skin-like finish. I wish this worked for me.

    Best Sunscreen Ever
    • I have sensitive skin and have had so much trouble finding the perfect facial sunscreen. Somehow all the ones my body can handle, my face rejects entirely, even the top rated Beautypedia ones. Not this one! My face loves this stuff and I love the slight tint it gives my complexion. It doesn't look like makeup, but blurs any small discoloration or redness. Would it be possible to make this in a higher SPF? 30 is great, but living in FL, I feel that it is hard to overdo the SPF.

    The best sunscreen for difficult skin
    • If you experience breakouts or irritation (or both!) from every sunscreen you've ever tried, you (like me) may be only able to tolerate mineral sunscreens. If that's the case, this sunscreen was made for you. This is the ONLY sunscreen I've found that works for me, and I'm currently on my fourth bottle. Only con is that the tint doesn't disappear as advertised. This will be a problem for the very-fair or very dark-skinned. Please make a non-tinted version or a range of tints Paula!

    Just right!
    • I feel like Goldilocks. Regular sunscreen irritates my face. Olay moisturizer with sunscreen is too greasy. Paula's Super-Light Wrinkle Defense is just right. I have fair skin and there is just enough tint to even out my complexion and give me a finished look without having to add a foundation. Love it!

Detailed instructions on how/when to apply your Paula's Choice products can be found in our How to Put Together Your Own Skincare Routine article.

Should I reapply Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 during the day?

For casual wear, meaning less than four hours total time out in the sun, it is not necessary to reapply sunscreen as you will be protected all day.

The FDA recommends you reapply sunscreen every two hours which is an option to consider. Alternately, you can touch up your sun protection by applying a pressed powder with sunscreen, such as Paula's Choice Healthy Finish with SPF 15. Those spending the majority of their day indoors do not need to reapply—you will be protected all day.

How is Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 different from Skin Balancing Ultra-Sheer Daily Defense SPF 30?

Although both products provide excellent broad-spectrum sun protection, Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 does this via the mineral sunscreen zinc oxide while Skin Balancing Ultra-Sheer Daily Defense SPF 30 uses avobenzone and other sunscreen actives.

Both formulas offer anti-aging benefits: Each contains antioxidants to help defend skin against signs of aging as well as cell-communicating and skin-repairing ingredients to help skin look and act younger.

Texture-wise, the Skin Balancing formula is lighter and more fluid (it's a thin lotion) whereas Resist Super-Light has a incredibly sheer-cream texture. Either will feel wonderful on combination to oily skin, while the Resist Super-Light is the more mattifying of the two.

How is Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 different from Hydralight Shine-Free Daily Mineral SPF 30?

Both use mineral actives for gentle broad-spectrum protection, and both are excellent for combination to oily skin. The Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 uses only zinc oxide while Hydralight Shine-Free Daily Mineral SPF 30 uses a blend of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.

The Resist Super-Light contains a slight tint to counteract the white cast inherent in mineral sunscreens (it doesn’t provide coverage and nearly vanishes after a few minutes on skin). The tint is ultra-sheer, and is perfect for any skin tone.

Is Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 the only Paula's Choice moisturizer with sunscreen that provides anti-aging benefits?

Definitely not! Every Paula's Choice daytime moisturizer with sunscreens as well as our "body" sunscreens (which can also be applied to the face) provide broad-spectrum sun protection and contain antioxidants for enhanced defense and antiaging benefits.

Is Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 suitable for breakout-prone skin?

Yes. Despite containing 13% zinc oxide, this formula was designed so that the zinc oxide "floats" over skin rather than settling into pores. This is accomplished via silicone technology, which also enables the zinc oxide to be cosmetically elegant—a difference you will see and feel with each use!

Is Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 suitable for rosacea?

Yes. Not only is the formula fragrance-free (like every other Paula's Choice product) it contains the gentle mineral active zinc oxide plus proven anti-irritants and antioxidants that work to reduce inflammation. When inflammation is reduced, skin appears less red and looks more even.
