Ok for combination skin just not mine
Comments about RESIST Daily Fluid SPF 50 - 2 oz:
I used this product everyday. When I put it on, it feels smooth, light and not greasy at all except in my T-zone where it feels a little slick but not bothersome. At the end of the day, I've notice it does feel slightly greasy on my cheeks, chin, and moreso in my T-zone. I also noticed that I have a couple of blemishes on my forehead and around my mouth but not in my T-zone (weird!) after a few weeks of use. I discovered this when I stopped using this product. I think it may have to do with the added SPF (this usually happens when I put ANY chemical sunscreen on my face) so I'm in the middle of the road with this.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The Best Sunscreen I've Ever Used!
from RIverside, CA
For the longest I did not use sunscreen being that I have acne prone skin. All other sunscreens that I have tried out were greasy and felt too heavy under my makeup. Now I do not feel complete leaving my house without this on! It is not greasy or heavy whatsoever! I love that it is so lightweight and still manages to protect my skin with a high SPF of 50. You have to try this sunscreen out!

Good for base under makeup
About Me Minimalist
I bought the whole line for wrinkles and breakouts. This is one of the more interesting products. All together the products are overkill. I use this in the morning on clean skin alone or under foundation. It makes a good matte base for foundation which otherwise slides around. Doesn't creep into my eyes. I have no idea if the spf is effective, I doubt it, but it doesn't irritate and is the best " primer" I have. It goes on thin and dries fast. Very useful.
GREAT For Oily Skin
from Denver, CO
About Me Beauty Conscious
If you have an oily complexion with large pores, this is a fantastic product to try. I use this in my daily skin care routine. After cleansing and toning with PC Resist products in the morning, this goes on right after. It's wonderfully lightweight and applies evenly and quickly. It has quite a watery texture, so make sure you apply a little at a time. After a few minutes, I apply La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur Fair/Light Shade Instant Oil-Absorbing Cream and the two products jive together very well for me. I encourage everyone to use SPF products --- and this is an awesome one! If you're like me, you try new ways to use your PC products whether alone or in tandem with your other moisturizers or foundation(s). Good luck! This is one of my favorite PC products.
Not great for my sensitive, acne-prone skin
from Athens, GA
Pretty disappointing. I was looking for a high-SPF moisturizer with UVB protection to use under my makeup, and this definitely didn't have the "satin-matte" texture promised in the item description. It's shiny and greasy, and it doesn't play well with my bb cream (I use Dr. Jart Detox BB). Used alone, my bb cream is smooth and flawless, but when I use this moisturizer underneath, it turns into a pitted, streaky, greasy mess. Even when used alone, I immediately sweat it off. It's runny and doesn't have much staying power at all. I can't win with this one.I'll probably try PC's Skin Balancing SPF next, since the SPF-free version I use at night is a dream come true.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Clumps up and streaks when applied with other products
from Toronto, ON
This product on it's own over a freshly cleansed face (no toner, no serum!) works well. BUT I ordered this product as part of the 7 piece set assuming that it wouldn't clump up into those awful white balls/streaks...but unfortunately it just doesn't work as a team player along with the other products that you are told to use it with; and it works even worse if you try to apply makeup over it. I will continue to use up what I have of this product (that by the way was sent to me 3 months before its expiration date!). That said I will not be repurchasing this or recommending this to anyone, especially if you are planning on going for the whole resist package - it just doesn't work with all the other products and you can forget about applying your makeup over this.
from Los Angeles
I've struggled for years to find the right SPF - everything gives me terrible acne (cysts). I was hesitant to use this given my past experiences with SPF but I'm thrilled I tried it. Not only is this SPF 50, much higher than other moisturizer + SPFs out there, but it's extremely lightweight. It doesn't leave a cast on my face and is not greasy, even for my oily, sensitive, acne-prone skin. I have never experienced the stinging people have described for this product, and I use it after a Vit. C serum - no redness to speak of. Best of all, it does not break me out! I would say that a little goes a long way (at least for me). This isn't something I would wear if I'm going to the beach or going to be outside for long periods of time. However, it's a great moisturizer and SPF for daily use. It is the last thing I apply before makeup. Great product, Paula!

Really Like This
By Hate to Burn
from San Diego, CA
I don't seem to have the stingy-eye problem even though I apply under eye & lightly on the lid. I either wear this straight up or sometimes mix with Paula's light foundation to make a base less obvious, for me foundation (in general) just seems to be rejected by my skin and rarely looks good after 2 hours. I am slightly oily with some acne and flaky (I have it all). I am 48 with some fine lines. Thank you Paula, otherwise I would have more wrinkles.

Stops sunburn but burns eyes!
By beach bunny
from san diego, ca
This product is great under makeup especially IF you are only going to the office. Nothing active, never at the beach or exercising because it will burn your eyes for a long time. Other users have mentioned this also - I use a Vitamin C serum daily and twice I used this SPF on top and my entire face turned lobster red with major inflammation. It was burning hot and felt like a fire. I rinsed in ice water but it took a few days to calm down. Just don't mix with Vitamin C!I do find myself buying more when I run out. I like this product in the cold months as opposed to summer, to avoid burning eyes. Give it a try!

love it!! Will buy it again
I love that it absorbs into skin, does not leave white cast. I don't mind the waterytexture as I have very oily skin especially summer , I'm 58! . I use daily from spring thru fall. Only bad thing for me is stings my eyes even though I try not to get close to my eyes when applying. Wish it was less expensive.!
