Why is it different?
CLEAR Ultra-Light Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 30+ is the daytime, sun-protecting fluid those with oily skin and clogged pores have been waiting for. Its water-light texture and shine-free finish is sheer perfection.

What does it do?
Helps soften the look of enlarged pores while providing broad-spectrum protection. Its soft, barely there finish leaves skin feeling clean, not coated. Soothing plant-derived antioxidants and hydrators help smooth and calm skin, minimizing flaking and dryness. The SPF 30 is a significant benefit as it decreases the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun if used as directed with other sun protection measures.
How to use
Use as the last step in your AM skincare routine. Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. If you don’t apply liberally, you will need to reapply every two hours after your skin is exposed to direct sunlight. If you plan to swim or perspire you must apply a water-resistant sunscreen.

Ratings & Reviews

Please do not discontinue this!!


Best SPF/moisturizer on the market! I cannot wear anything else with SPF on my face, every other produce looks shiny and coated in white. This product is amazing, barely there feeling! Paula's Choice got rid of my #1 holy grail product (10% AHA Weekly Treatment) due to FDA regulations. I don't know what I'll do if they eliminate this. Please keep!!




Only Sunscreen and Moisturizer I Use!


I have never had a sunscreen & moisturizer combo work so well before. I have very sensitive skin and everything else I have used either made me breakout or burned when I applied it to my skin. I can't wait for this to be back in stock!

The only sunscreen that hasn't broken me out in my life.


I usually have to choose being burned over applying sunscreen because EVERY sunscreen breaks my face out horribly. When I ordered a bunch of Paula's Choice stuff to try, I expected this to be the same and just waited for a million pimples. I have been using this every single day, sometimes applying it twice a day. No breakouts or irritation, whatsoever. I love that it doesn't have any added fragrance. My skin has been amazingly clear (I've consistently had terrible skin since the age of 12) but I can't solely credit this sunscreen as I have been using other PC products at the same time. I do wish they had an SPF 50 of this because I sometimes feel like I need more coverage if I'm out in the sun for a while.

Amazing sunscreen


My skin is quite sensitive and I suffer alot from redness and breakouts. I have tried to find a suitable susncreen for myself for a long time and they all end up making my skin worse. But this one is just amazing. It's so light that you can't even feel that it's applied onto your skin. Definitely will recommend to my friends

Great lightweight SPF!


I was on the hunt for a water/glycerin based SPF (because those are they main ingredients in my favorite moisturizer) and came across this product and decided to give it a try. I love it! It's lightweight (VERY liquid-y, like I definitely squeezed out too much product the first time I used it - be careful!). It does not make my skin feel greasy like other SPFs I have tried. It sits nicely under my makeup (minimal concealer and powder). It does have a typical sunscreen smell to it, but it's not very strong and I only notice it while applying - not throughout the day. Definitely would recommend this product.




don't you dare ever discontinue this one!!!!


I use it every day before I put on my foundation and in the afternoon, I put it on again over my foundation before I go out a 2nd time. I love it. It is so thin and non-greasy and the texture is wonderful. Nobody can tell I have sunscreen on. It doesn't show.

Best Moisturizer with SPF for Breakout Prone Skin


I've tried many moisturizers and they always end up clogging my pores leading to blackheads and breakouts. It does have a slight sunscreen scent and the consistency is a little "liquidy" but that doesn't bother me one bit. Neither are deal breakers considering this product keeps my skin protected from the sun, moisturizes just enough for my combination skin and doesn't lead to clogged pores/breakouts. I am so happy I found this product!




Love it


I love this product and its easy to apply. My face feels smooth and fresh. I would like to know if somebody can answer if its safe applying it around your eye area. Couldn't find this info anywhere. Thank you!



Best facial moisturizer I've ever tried


It was hard to decide which of Paula's facial moisturizers to try, but this Clear moisturizer came in a travel size so I tried it out. Today I ordered the full size because I adore it. First of all, it smells great. It has a faint smell of sunscreen so it reminds me of the beach. It's very thin, which I love because it rubs in instantly and it feels like there's nothing on my face. It leaves my skin matte, no shininess, and it's been great for my combination skin. I don't have a problem with acne but I do have KP on my face and this moisturizer combined with the BHA 2% liquid have done wonders for my skin. I'm a customer for life.

The only SPF that feels so light and invisible on my skin


I have combination skin, and this SPF feels incredibly light on my skin. It is a watery lotion, and super easy to apply over the skin. It absorbs fast and leaves a soft matte finish. Never greasy! In addition to having a high SPF, my favourite thing about it is that it feels invisible, like I have nothing on my skin! Many SPF products feel heavy or greasy on my combo skin (I've used drug store and high end brands), but nothing compares to Clear Ultra-Light Daily Fluid. This is my holy grail! It has never once broken me out and I have used it for 4+ years. Please don't ever change the formula and keep making it FOREVER! I will be your customer for life!
