Please make a SPF 50 version of this
from Las Vegas, NV
Comments about RESIST Super-Light Daily Defense SPF 30 - 2 oz:
This is so far the best facial sunscreen I've tried. It goes on smooth, feels light, hides all my pores and evens out my skin tone. However, the tint is too dark and orangy on my Asian pale skin. Plus, I prefer a greater sun protection, like SPF50. So for now, I have no choice but to go on to the 5th bottle of Exuviance, not because it's better than PC but at least my face is not 2 shades darker than my neck.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Minimalist
I am so glad I found this! I am allergic to chemical sunscreens and have enough sun damage that I must wear sunscreen daily to prevent further damage. Other store-bought brands of zinc or titanium based sunscreens that I tried were a disaster --- sticky, greasy, ended up collecting in the creases of my face, ghost-like look, etc. Eeew. So I stopped wearing sunscreen daily.Resist Super-Light Daily Defense SPF 30 does *none* of that. It is perfect for me, and the light tint is perfect for my fair "winter/summer" tone skin. I always wear a light, sheer makeup just to even out my skin tones. With this product, I don't have to use any other makeup. Most other tinted moisturizers one finds in stores was always too yellow or orange for my skin tone. The neutral beige tint in this product is perfect. Thank you Paula's Choice! My dermatologist is now happy, and I am, too.

New favorite daytime moisturizer
By Michael S.
from Boston, MA
About Me Skin Care Professional
I've probably tried every daytime moisturizer by PC that's formulated for Normal-Oily-Combination skin, and I have a new favorite (especially for summer).Over the past year I've been more aware of my skin's sensitivity to certain combinations of chemical sunscreens, so I've been looking for a mineral-based sunscreen closer in texture to my existing PC warm-weather favorite, Daytime Protect SPF 30. This definitely does the trick.- The tint scared me off of trying it at first, but it's now obvious that it doesn't really do anything more cosmetically than to offset the huge white cast that the formula would otherwise have. I can see it being problematic for either extreme of the skin tone spectrum, though.- As others have commented, this product is highly mattifying. People with dry areas would probably do well to layer in additional moisture as needed, but it's fantastic for oil control.- Unlike with many tinted moisturizers, BB creams, CC creams, etc., blending this product isn't a chore even for people like me who don't use makeup. I don't need to worry about making a line around my chin or at my scalp, and I don't end up with brown kleenex if I need to blot my face or, god forbid, blow my nose at some point during the day.- I use my Calm SPF 30 moisturizer if I'm staying in or if I'm going somewhere dry and/or cold, but this is my new go-to for the work day.
Controls my oily skin

About Me Beauty Conscious
I got 3 of the free samples of this product with my order of Resist 2% BHA. I have REALLY oily skin where I can blot and powder 6 times a day. I started using this moisturizer and saw a tremendous decrease in my oily skin (blotting 2x a day) within a week. I thought is was a new pressed powder that I bought and continued to use the samples until they were gone (about 2-3 weeks). Within 1-2 days the oily skin returned despite the use of the powder. The only change I had made in my skin care or makeup was not using this moisturizer. This moisturizer has done for my skin what NO OTHER oil control product has ever done, high end or drugstore! I've tried them all and sticking with what works. AWESOME PRODUCT!
I ordered a few samples of this with my last order and just ordered the full size. This is the best sunscreen I have found..I kind of can't believe how excited I am about it! This product applies beautifully - I have very, very fair skin so I was worried about an orange cast, but have not had that problem. In fact, it evens out my skin enough that I can get away without foundation. There is none of the heaviness that often accompanies physical sunscreens. My skin feels so lovely and soft after I apply it. I have extremely dry skin so I put on my regular moisturizer, wait a few minutes and then put this over top. It doesn't smell funny and is a nice consistency for spreading. Overall this is one of the best skin care products I have ever tried.

My favorite sunscreen!!
from Fort Lauderdale
I use this every day. I am Hispanic with light brown skin. The tint is not a problem for me. It absorbs nicely into my skin color. I have redness and brown patches and the tint gives me a nice base for my foundation. It is perfect for me!!
Great sunscreen for oily skin
from Houston, TX
About Me Brand Buyer
This is a really great sunscreen for people with oily skin. I have oily skin and live in a very humid climate. This sunscreen is MATTIFYING. The Clear sunscreen has mattifying in the title, but this is way more matte to me than that one. Its almost a little too matte, but I actually like this as, no matter what, I'm going to get oily and this helps my foundation last longer. Most foundations tend to break down due to the oiliness and the humidity, but using this underneath helps to keep the shine under control. I wish this came in a larger size though as I do tend to use it up pretty quickly. It is also rather pricey for 2 ounces of product, so I tend to wait for sales, but it a really good product if you are oily! Very lightweight texture, and it rubs in easily too.

Tint doesn't work for me
from Moncton NB
I really wanted to like this. Great texture, spreads and blends easily, not heavy. I have an oily T zone and this is wonderfully mattifying. It doesn't irritate my eyes either. I tried a few sample packages and I loved it so much I ordered two tubes, for home and the gym. However, now that I've been wearing it a few weeks I'm noticing the tint is just not working well for me (I'm quite fair skinned). I'm not sure if it's oxidizing over the day or if it's just the lighting difference between home and work that make me notice it, but I'm finding orange-y patches. At first I thought it was a new concealer but now I'm sure it's the lotion. It could be that it just doesn't work well with my brand of makeup, but it took me forever to find the perfect foundation color so I'm not willing to play around with that. One of very few PC duds for me :(. I'm back on the hunt for the perfect SPF. I would recommend it to anyone with oily/combo skin except those who have a very fair complexion.

Not For Dark Skin
By Brown Beauty
from Oakland, CA
I'm struggling to find a non-toxic sunscreen that will fully absorb into my chocolate brown skin. I understand that 'non-toxic' typically means 'chalky white zinc oxide', but I wanted to believe the product claim that this "sheer tint works beautifully for all skin tones."I'm here to tell you brown girls, it does not. If you're café au lait or lighter, this might do.Returning right away, and continuing my desperate search.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
