Great texture and finish, but it stings around my eyes

Comments about SKIN BALANCING Ultra-Sheer Daily SPF 30 - 2 oz:
I've been on a quest for facial sunscreen, and have been going through samples of PC products because I haven't had good luck with other brands. I am olive complected with "extreme" combination normal to oily skin and some sensitivity. I tried Resist Mattifying spf 50, Skin Balancing spf 30, and Hydralight spf 30. I felt a little like Goldilocks and the three bears...All three sunscreens were great for daily use: lightweight, absorbed quickly, left no white cast, non-greasy, just a touch of moisture for skin tending toward oilyness, didn't add to facial oil production throughout the day. All three are somewhat liquid in texture, but not too thin. This means they are easy to apply and don't feel mask-like as other sunscreens might.Here is where the three differed:Resist Mattifying spf 50 (physical sunscreen)--soothing, did not sting eyes, but left a sheen ie, was not mattifying on my skinSkin Balancing spf 30 (chemical sunscreen)--ok on face but burned around my eyes, mattifyingHydralight spf 30 (physical sunscreen)--soothing, did not sting eyes, and mattifyingIn my case Hydralight was the "just right" solution to quell my sensitive eye area and provide some mattification. I also really loved the super light weight of Resist Mattifying and Skin Balancing. I think if the Resist product didn't leave a sheen, that would be my HG sunscreen since it provides a bit more protection, is non-irritating and has great anti-aging ingredients. Skin Balancing was also great as a lightweight handcream, leaving my hands feeling silky and smooth with no shine. For now, I'm going to stick with Hydralight as my full purchase, but all three are worthy of sampling.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I chose it over CeraveAM. Skin balancing formulation is very strong. Even Cerave can't compete with it

from Santa Cruz, CA
I finally found a daily moisturizer with sunscreen that doesn't leave me greasy, white, or sting my eyes. It's not at all irritating on my sensitive skin.

This is perfect! It slides on so easily so you don't have to tug your skin, and looks so sheer. I've tried a lot of Paula's daily spf moisturizers and this one is by far the best!

Too light for me
from Mequon, WI
I wanted to love this light moisturizer but it was too light for me. My skin feels tight and dry just 10 minutes after applying. I'm sure this is a great moisturizer for the summer but it definitely is not enough for me to brave the harsh Wisconsin winters. I'm going to try the Hydralight day and night moisturizers, per the recommendation of the PC rep I chatted with.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was very quick. CS was very helpful.

My perfect summer sunscreen
from Toronto, Canada
After trying umpteen different SPF products, I thought I'd give this a shot while not expecting anything other than my previous attempts at finding something that:* didn't burn my skin when applied* didn't leave a white cast* didn't make my face shiny* didn't feel heavyThis product definitely exceeded my expectations. It's lightweight, doesn't irritate or burn, is long lasting, and works great under my makeup!

I am looking for a good daily moisturizer with reasonable SPF, and gave this a try. I agree with the other notes about the texture; it's very thin and runny, though I'm personally okay with that. However, the smell makes it unusable; it has a nasty chemical odor that persists for about an hour. I've never returned a beauty product before, and I'm in the process of trying to return this--it's really that bad. I may have gotten a bad batch, but consider avoiding this if you are sensitive to odors.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

from Ann Arbor, MI
I'm a 25 yr old Indian female and have combination skin with an oily T-zone. Since using PC products, my skin has been GREAT (the 2% BHA is a god-sent). I've loved all my other PC products (Invisible Finish Moisture Gel, Skin Balancing Toner)! However, this is just not working for me and I ordered the full size :(I wash, tone, exfoliate, and then put this on--it didn't absorb well (too runny) and left my face super shiny. I even used the Invisible Moisture Gel after hoping it would dial down the shininess but it didn't help. Had to wash my face all over again. Not a fan. Thankfully, I ordered a sample of the Skin Brightening Treatment and that works well as moisturizer. I also live in Michigan, so I need to add on the Invisible Moisture Gel as an added layer so my skin doesn't dry out. I will be ordering the full size of the Skin Brightening Treatment and returning this.

Excellent sunscreen, only one criticism
from Mountain View, CA
This sunscreen works great on my combination skin, and it rubs in nicely with a non-greasy finish.My only complaint is that the formulation is VERY runny, which makes it a little messy to put on. If they could thicken it up a bit I would give it 5 stars.

The best for me, and I adore it beyond any other sunscreen!!
I have tried all of the offerings from Paula's Choice. This is my favorite daytime SPF.
