Will never buy it again
About Me Brand Buyer
Comments about RESIST Super-Light Daily Defense SPF 30 - 2 oz:
I was using only RESIST CELLULAR DEFENSE DAILY MOISTURIZER SPF 25 for over 5 years, now it is discontinued, so i had to order this one. Turned out it is not a replacement of the one i was waiting for - it is a make up, it has irritating pegment, that hides nothig, but you have no option to use it as night cream any more. I am very disappointed and i will return it! Feel very emberrased because i gave one as a gift with all good comments thinking of absolutely another product. I do not know how much you paid your mafketing guru for the advise to replacevold good product, but you lost me as a customer.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was ok
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Extremely drying, not for normal or combination skin
from Northbrook, IL
This is the first Paula's Choice product that I have hated. I put it on and instantly my face felt like all of the moisture was being sucked out- almost the feeling of a clay masque. I had to wash it off and put on. another moisturizer. Obviously someone with very oily skin might like it, but I have combination skin and that's how it felt. So be warned. Only for oily skin.

I have normal skin that at times can be dry in places, but I absolutely love this sunscreen. I like that it's tinted, it rubs in really nicely and wears very nicely under makeup and throughout the day. I will never be without this sunscreen!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Would Be Perfect If It Wasn't Tinted
I have incredibly sensitive acne-prone skin that breaks out from certain ingredients in skincare and cosmetics. For years, I had been searching for a mineral sunscreen that contained only Zinc Oxide, was non-greasy, and formulated with ingredients that would not irritate or clog my pores (Panthenol breaks me out horribly and it's hard to find products that don't contain it). When I found this product, I was so excited. It has lived up to my expectations and it does precisely what I was looking for. The only problem is the tint. I have very fair skin and the tint is too dark for me. Paula, please make an non-tinted version of this!!!!!!!
One of the best for my combo skin
from Denver, CO
This is one of my favorite sunscreens, and I've tried quite a few of Paula's Choice and Beautypedia recommended ones. I can usually wear synthetic sunscreens no problem, but recently my skin has stung after applying and I've switched to mineral sunscreens for daily use. I love the super lightweight texture of this, which layers wonderfully over serums and moisturizers. I do have to layer moisturizer under in my dry areas, but that's to be expected with a sunscreen that works perfectly in my oily areas. The light tint keeps it from giving my light/medium skin that ghostly finish.

I think this might work for someone with oily skin
from Redding, CA
Was very happy to find a zinc oxide sunscreen. Did not like this product. It might be better for someone with oily skin, as it seemed to drag on my normal skin. It was lightly tinted and it seem to blend fairly well. It seemed to suck all of the moisture out of my skin. The finish was matte and sort of chalky. I will not buy this again.

Tint reacts poorly with some other PC products
At first I thought this product was wonderful... then I started using it with some other PC products. When used with the retinol booster or the serum from the same line, this turns an ugly, blotchy , "presidential" orange.I'm scared to experiment because the effect doesn't appear for a while... I walked out of the house thinking I looked normal only to be really embarrassed later on. I no longer trust this product. On one hand it's everything I need: a matte, mineral sunscreen for oily skin that doesn't leave a white cast. On the other hand, I'm too terrified to use it now...even without the products I noticed it reacting with.
The best suncreen but poor packaging
from Honolulu, HI
About Me Budget Buyer
Excellent product but I'm skeptical with the cap of the packaging. Mine does not closed tightly. Better use the twisted cap to preserve the quality of the product.
I wear this every day!
I love this product. It applies beautifully, and I wear it on its or under makeup. I literally don't leave the house without it. I have skin that is dry and sensitive and easily irritated. My skin never reacts badly to this product. While it is not as moisturising as I would like, I use it because I live in a very hot and humid climate and this product stays put no matter what the weather! Sometime I will use a light moisturiser underneath if my skin is a bit dry.
One of the best
I really, really like this product. I have tried so many mineral facial suncreens and this is one of my favorites. I like that it uses only zinc oxide for protection. It blends great, and gives an airbrushed look. Balances my skin perfectly, no oil slicks or sahara deserts. I do wish there were more shades to choose from, as the tint on this one is a little bit fair even for me!
