        I was looking for a moisturizing SPF as my skin is dryer during the winter months. This product not only dried out my skin, it made it red/splotchy, bumpy, very itchy and caused a few micro-breakouts. I have been using the hydro light mineral SPF/moisturizer with great success and the moisture boost cream in combo. I will just go back to that combo and return this product. I was very surprised to have had this reaction to a PC product. Oh well :/

          I've been using PC products for more than 20 years. I attribute them to resolving my issues with rosacea. By removing products that irritated my skin, I've been able to do without any Rx for Metrogel for those same 20 years. Some will argue that rosacea doesn't go away, but all I can tell you is that I had to use an Rx for about 8 years until I started using PC. My dermatologist asked what I was using on my skin! I was sad when this was discontinued a few years ago and none of the recommended replacements measured up. When I saw this was back in stock, I ordered several tubes. I hope PC NEVER discontinues this again! I also use the Skin Recovery with SPF in the really cold months, but use this one about 8 months of the year.

            I started using this product because I have previously had a terrible time finding sunscreen that does not irritate my eyes - so many do! Or irritate my skin in any other way, since I'm eczema-prone.
            This product is a WINNER! It's a good non-greasy moisturizer, as well as provides sun protection. All without irritation or leaving a greasy shine. I haven't found another moisturizer that I like as well as this one, so have bought it over and over. Except for the times that it's been out of stock! So glad to be able to buy it again!

              It is back! I really struggled to find a sunscreen that worked for me after this was discontinued...6 in my drawer right now. The Resist Skin Restoring spf 50 comes close though.
              I put it on this morning and later wondered what was keeping my skin soft and moisturized then remembered I used Moisture Boost spf.
              It delivers a long lasting moisturizer, softens dry wrinkles and dries down to a satin (not shiny). I also like this for my hands because it is not tacky or shiny when applied.

                  Thank you, thank you, thank you for bringing this back!! This is the absolute best sunscreen/moisturizer for me! I tried several others in Paula's line and this one just worked best for me...dewy but not greasy. No excessive shine after an hour or 2 like some of the others. Excellent under my powder foundation. Just perfect.

                  Please never discontinue again!

                    I'm so thrilled this moisturiser has returned. I have dry skin and it's the only one that keeps my skin feeling soft all day, I love it. Great sun protection without any white cast so you don't mind applying liberally. So happy it's returned, I'd stocked up when I heard it was being discontinued but running very low!

                        So glad this is back. I hadn't used it but I loved the SPF-free version for nighttime use, and the recovery SPF​ did not work for me at all. This is a lightweight finish that isn't too greasy but still provides moisture to my skin. Hope it is here to stay because I will continue to buy it!
