Love this stuff!

Comments about EXTRA CARE Non-Greasy SPF 50 - 5 oz:
I've been using this sunscreen for about 2 months. It is the best one i've ever used (I can't use mineral sunscreens). I definitely wouldn't call it non-greasy, but I wouldn't say it's greasy. Definitely adds a shine to your face or body (isn't that what some people want? the dewy look). I tried the Clear spf and it's good (very matte) but this one is better in my mind; it has a very slight tint which hides redness. This sunscreen also goes on smoother than the Clear spf (because that one is matte). If you're looking for a good chemical sunscreen i'd say this one or the clear spf. The pc4men spf is too greasy.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love this product
from Martinez, CA
I used this product on both face and body before the new Resist line came out, so I have been using it for years. Although I have switched to Moisture Boost for my everyday face coverage I still keep this on hand for travel and any time I am exposed to extra sun (like driving distances). It is better than any drug store product and is great value for the money. Yes, it is heavier than a 30SPF product but the trade off is well worth it.

very favorite suncare champ
from San Antonio, Texas
About Me Brand Buyer
I live in a semi desert called central Texas. I use this all the time. This is not just for the pool. I use it most days and mostly just my arms. It absorbs quickly and does not dry out my skin. I love the packaging and color it's quick to grab and I keep one at work next to my desk. So before I leave the office my arms get a quick go over for that Texas sun.

Very shiny !
Have been using Paula's products for over a year. I was very happy so far. Bought this couple months ago and have wanted to think it works but it does not. This does not dry to a matte finish at all. You will always look shiny with it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I'm ordering more right now!
from Northeast US
I got a bottle of this last year when it was on sale. I have very fair skin, and unfortunately I burn easily and don't tan. I used it when we we went to Aruba last fall and it worked perfectly. It rubbed in easily and absorbed well, it wasn't obvious I was wearing sunscreen. There was a slight sting on my face when I first applied it but it faded. It was worth it to be able to go snorkeling for hours in the middle of the day and not worry about burning in the Caribbean sun (I reapplied it whenever we got out of the water). I was very sorry I only had the one tube, the other sunscreen we had didn't rub in as well and left white streaks.Now we're planning a trip to Hawaii and I'm making sure I have lots of this with me!

Fast absorbing and non-greasy
from Duluth, MN
This sunscreen is perfect when used for arms, hands, legs, and feet. It is the most fast absorbing and non-greasy sunscreen I've tried. However in my experience it is not suitable for face (causes stinging in eyes when washing face at the end of the day), or weirdly for the the neck/throat region. Whenever I use it on the front of my neck, it causes a thankfully invisible but very itchy reaction that lasts for several days, the feeling is akin to wearing a wool turtleneck. It sounds weird but I've tested it several times, tried preventive measures like combining with lotion before/after application but the irritation still occurs. I still use it on arms, legs, etc though and for that it works great.
I have used many sunscreens in my time for my fair skin, and have found the strongest of them to be chalky and greasy. Some left an irritating residue on my skin so that I had to take a very long shower to wash it off. I was amazed when I used this because it absorbed well (I used it on my fact too) and didn't leave a residue. In fact, my skin felt soft and not greasy, like I had used a nice lotion on it. Thank you Paula!

Left me shiny!
This does not dry to a matte finish like it says. I was constantly shiny looking.

I use this every day on my arms, neck, & chest. I usually can't use avobenzone on my face, but with this product I can, since it is non-sensitizing for me (and I have fairly sensitive skin). It's great for sports, and everyday use. I often use this underneath the PC Resist Ultra-light SPF 30 (which is also what I use around my eyes). I really wish they would use this as a base for a makeup since it has such a nice finish and stays on all day - if it had a slight tint i could wear just this on my face since it leaves such a nice finish.
I use sunscreen daily. The product is really hard to get out of the tube so that's extremely frustrating. I actually hold it against the sink and press the tube with my other hand to get it out. It also clumps at times. The only reason I continue to use it till its done is that I know it's effective but I would absolutely not buy again. Unfortunately I bought 4.
