Perfect except for greasy nose
from Bellevue, WA
About Me Minimalist
Comments about RESIST Daily Fluid SPF 50 - 2 oz:
This product is ALMOST the holy grail for me.I'd been looking for a moisturizer with a decent spf, as I'm beginning to get more confident going out without makeup, but if I do I don't get the sun protection my BB cream and makeup normally provide. I also needed it to make my skin look decent for that reason, not wearing anything on top of it - I have combination skin, and some redness, mostly on/around my nose, and some products leave my skin looking kind of patchy/irrated. This is sooo light and smooth, feels great on my skin, isn't irritating at all, and leaves my skin looking pretty good (nothing will make it look AWESOME without makeup, my uneven tone always shows through, but this definitely doesn't aggravate any of my issues and even improves them a bit). However... MY NOSE GETS GREASY when I use this and it drives me nuts. Everything else is so perfect. It doesn't seem to have that effect when I wear it under makeup, which is nice, (or at least it's definitely more minimal), but I specifically wanted something that I could wear alone. Side note though... when I DO wear it under makeup... I used to use a primer I LOVED, however this moisturizer has replaced it. This works AMAZINGLY as a base for makeup, no primer needed anymore. Leaves skin so silky.I'm researching other PC moisturizer options now, although I doubt I'll find anything that gives me all these benefits without a greasy nose, I may just have to deal since everything else about this product is just spot on. Just to make it more complicated I also need it to be one of their vegan products. Staff if you read this, please feel free to make suggestions below. I figure I'll throw in some samples with this order I'm about to make and try some options.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I don't know of another suncreen on the market with this fluid texture and no white caste, throw in the high SPF and you have a winner. However, I play Russian-roulette with my obsessive skin protection routine as I now skip applying on my jaw-line and neck if I'm wearing white shirts. The stains are yellow and impossible to remove. I live in Vancouver and therefore do not use well-water nor is our water highly mineralized.

Ok for combination skin just not mine
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.
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
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.
