What does it do?
Broad spectrum SPF 50 helps prevent premature aging while helping to improve skin health and hydration. Leaves a soft, dewy finish and provides superior anti-aging benefits.The SPF 50 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 not applied liberally, you’ll need to reapply every two hours after skin is exposed to direct sunlight. If you plan to swim or perspire, you must apply a water-resistant sunscreen.

Strong chemical smell. Sensitizing.

By SkinCareJunkie

from LA

Pros

    Cons

    • Bad Smell
    • Irritates Skin

    Best Uses

      Sensitizing product. There is simply a very high amount of "chemical" sunscreen ingredients that give it that particular stench an sensitize. Not sure why it needs to be 50 when an SPF 30 provides almost same level of protection but uses significantly lower amounts of those sunscreen ingredients and does not have that distinct "bad smell" and sensitizing effect.

        This is my go-to daily moisturizer. It absorbs quickly, protects against the sun, and provides a smooth base for days I wear makeup. My skin is dry and I live in a desert climate, so I usually use a little aquaphor on my extra-dry spots, but otherwise this does a good job of keeping my skin moisturized throughout the day. I don't know how I ever lived without it! I will buy this again and again.

        For those leaving 1-star reviews because it irritated your skin: no skin products work for absolutely everyone and that is a straight up fact of life. Please remember to patch test your new products so you know if it's a good match for you! This is a great product with a great formula and it seems like it works for most, and I feel like that needs to be accounted for. :-)

          This is the BEST skin care product I have ever used in my life! Period! As a guy, I hate the feeling of anything on my face. That doesn't exactly play out well if you've got dry skin like I do. So naturally, I have to put at least moisturizer on my face, but the ones that are liquid in texture dry nicely, but still leave me dry. And the ones that are thick and moisturizing, leave my face looking shiny. But I took a chance with this daytime moisturizer with sunscreen and I couldn't be happier! This is the first moisturizer with sunscreen to comfortably hydrate my face but still look imperceptible. Prior to this, I was using the moisture boost spf 30, which I thought was good as it gets. But man was I wrong! This product goes on even smoother (like a whipped cream/butter) and effortlessly sinks into my skin. It doesn't irritate my eyes nor does it cause breakouts. I have no idea how a product this good was ever invented. Like how is it even possible? This sunscreen is substantially lighter in texture yet more hydrating than its predecessor (which I did try and didn't like). This was definitely an improvement and a step in the right direction. I prefer chemical sunscreen over mineral because they absorb so much better and look less visible on my skin. This moisturizer is so good that I plan on using it as my nighttime moisturizer as well once my moisture boost hydrating treatment cream runs out. And that's great because that's one less product I have to buy. The only negative thing is the price. If only they could make the product bigger and cost less. Anyways, I give it 100 stars!

            Definitely an improvement from the previous formula, which was pasty and chalky. Absorbs fast, feels good, layers great, and makes skin look fantastic. It could be a tad more emollient, but nothing's perfect.

              I cannot tell you enough how I love this moisturizer. The 50spf is amazing for keeping sun spots from sneaking back after working so hard to diminish/vanish them. It melts right into my dry/combo skin without making me look greasy and makeup just glides on without getting all balled up or sticking to dry patches. I have used other PC moisturizers that I've liked, but this is Love. A definite keeper and part of my everyday routine.

                I'd been using this cream for 3+ months and love it. It's easy to apply on the skin and it makes my skin feel very nice and not sticky. I used the RESIST Daily Moisturizer SPF 25 before and I definitely like this new cream better. The Resist Daily Moisturizer SPF 25 is thicker in consistency and it feels heavier on my skin.

                  After trying a series of sunscreens that all felt sticky or greasy when applied (and always returning to my favorite Moisture Boost product here), I feel like I hit the jackpot with this daytime moisturizer. Great smooth feel, very light, no sticky/tacky feel at all. Excellent. And the added peace of mind knowing I'm using a good sunscreen! Paula's Choice gets it right again. Thanks

                  Not a cellular defense replacement

                      Please think twice about purchasing. After two days of use, my skin is bright red, painful and peeling. My skin is not sensitive and I have worn chemical sunscreens at much higher SPFs than this, and this burned and dried out my skin terribly. I am also a regular nighttime retinol user and have never experienced a reaction to a product like this.

                      Cellular Defense was my favorite moisturizer - this is NOT a replacement. I would not even consider this a moisturizer.

                        I use mineral sunscreen most of the time but I wanted to try this because of the high spf. Surprisingly it doesn't burn at all. This is one of the few chemical sunscreens that I can use in my sensitive skin. The texture is great too. Easy to spread and works well under make up.

                            Thank goodness I only purchased the travel size. I have been using Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizer and was going on vacation and wanted extra SPF protection. I bought the travel size of this and used it the first time and had a burning sensation around my eyes and cheeks. I tried a second day and got the same burning sensation. I don't consider myself to have sensitive skin either. I've used the old formula and did not have any issues but not sure what else PC changed with this formula. I went right back to the Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizer.
