not a good replacement for resist cellular defense spf :(
from Chicago, Il
About Me Budget Buyer
Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Lotion SPF 30 - 2 oz:
This product was recommended to me by the PC team as a replacement for the Resist Cellular Defense spf. I only use mineral sunscreen on my face. It is nowhere near as good or as moisturizing as the cellular defense. The first day I used it under my tinted moisturizer makeup, I did not put moisturizer under it and I was distracted all day by how dry and tight my face felt. I could not wait to get home because my face felt awful. The next day I put a moisturizer under it and it was better but really how many layers do I want to wear daily?? This product also dries really fast on the skin while having a decent texture.It wears well under makeup & I am light enough where I don't have to worry about white casts. This product did not cause any breakouts or reactions, but it just was not very moisturizing at all. I could never wear this alone like with the cellular defense.I really hope you guys can bring back cellular defense as good or better than it was before because this product just isn't cutting it for the moisturizing factor while also being just a mineral sunscreen. This product smells like cucumber so it is not unscented.
Service and delivery comments:
I love PC but whenever I order it always takes a really long time for my packages to come in the mail. I know that the site says that free shipping can take 2-10 days but it is always at least a week for me!! so slow! and I live in the us!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good for sensitive skin, but leaves white cast
This a nice-smelling daily screen, especially for those people who have sensitive skin and cannot use many common sunscreens with ingredients like oxybenzone, avobenzone and octisalate. However, if you have darker skin, this will leave a slight white cast. It wasn't too noticeable for me (I hover around NC42 in MAC foundations, for reference), so I could pull it off as a "glow" but it will be more noticeable for darker skin tones, so keep that in mind before buying.
simply the best!

Goes on smoothly- gives skin a dewy glow and moisturizes and doesn't stop.
Fantastic Everyday Moisturizer That Doesn't Irritate!
from Nashville, TN
This has been my go-to sunscreen for several years, and I absolutely love it. It goes on smooth, gives my face a nice glow, and acts as a great makeup base as well. Getting it near your eyes isn't an issue as it doesn't sting or burn at all. Living in the South, sunscreen is an absolute must ever day of the year, but especially in the summer months. I wouldn't change a thing about this formula. I love that it contains peptides and other ingredients beneficial to my skin beyond just sun protection. I layer it on top of my BHA 2% lotion and my skin feels supple, soft and hydrated all day.
best spf lotion i have ever used for my complicated skin
from Chicago, IL
i have very sensitive, break-out prone combination skin with rosacea. this is the best sunscreen i have ever used for my skin. you need to give it about 20 minutes to sink in before following it with make up (i think this addresses the reviews about it being sticky or leaving a white cast). put it on in the morning then make your coffee then apply your make up. i had been using the Calm Normal to Oily lotion with SPF for fear of breaking out, but this more moisturizing sensitive skin formula works much better for me

Did not work for me
from Somerville, MA
I was looking for a moisturizer to wear in the daytime, and since I have dry skin I thought this was ideal. I've been using Paula's products for the past few years and never had a problem. My face was moisturized for a few hours, and then it got dry and started peeling. I tried using it a few more times and the same thing happened (my face felt and looked dry and was peeling everywhere). I'm not sure why it did not work for me.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great for dry, sensitive skin!
By Skin care obsessed
from Livingston, NJ
I love this SPF moisturizer for everyday since it keeps me hydrated and protected from sun exposure all in one. This product is a little heavy at first, but with some patting and gently smoothing it in, my very dry, sensitive skin drinks it in. If you skin is oily or normal I would not recommend this product since you may feel it's "greasy" as my husband stated when I gave it to him to try. (He has normal/combination skin, so I can understand why he did not like its consistency.) For me, this luxurious soothing product works well and provides a subtle glow I had before "menopause dryness" set in at an early age. I tried the daily SPF in the Calm for dry skin line, and it was not nearly hydrating enough for my skin;but this one is!!! Of course this product is fragrance-free as are all PC products, but I do notice a slight scent initially which is most likely from the SPF. Fortunately this odor dissipates quickly so I can tolerate it with my allergies. Lastly, my skin turns red and becomes irritated so easily with a multitude of products, but I tolerate this one well, so I am very pleased. I alternate this daily spf with my other favorite daily spf, Josie Maran Daily SP 47. If your skin is dry or very dry like mine, this product is a must have!!

About Me Beauty Conscious
I bought this product as a replacement for the MOISTURE BOOST SPF 30. I like it but I find it to be a bit too heavy for a daytime moisturizer. It moisturizes fine but it is not ideal for wearing makeup on top of it. I don't wear foundation but I do conceal redness and apparent veins under the eyes and it feels like it is somewhat harder to blend. Overall, I like this product. But I still wish they wouldn't have discontinued the Moisture Boost line. To me, nothing compares to how good the daily moisturizer was.
Delivery is amazing, as usual. Extremely fast.
from Long Beach , CA
I use this product on my face and neck every day -with or without makeup. It is the only broad-spectrum moisturizer with SPF that does not dry out my skin. I have been using this for about one year and I always have one new tube in reserve so I don't run out!! It moisturizes, works well under foundation and protects my skin. I apply a generous amount over toner and /or argan oil. I let it sink in for 10-12 minutes before applying foundation. LOVE! LOVE!

do not want to be without it
To me... this stuff is incredible. My skin type is dry, sensitive, with minor redness issues. If you are like me then I completely recommend this product. Some say it is greasy and I absolutely agree. It is. Do not buy if you are oily skinned or not decently dry. For me the best part is that my dry skin is glistening after use. If you are trying to decide between this sunscreen and the calm sunscreen for dry skin, get this one. I have used full size of both and this one is much better and does what I think the Calm sunscreen should do.. Moisturize and soothe. The Calm line for dry skin didn't moisturize me enough.I think this sunscreen has really helped my "moisture barrier" as my skin has improved in plumpness dramatically, redness has diminished, and I believe it is from getting the sun protection, moisture, and soothing properties.
