Why is it different?
RESIST Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 contains a special blend of a lightly tinted, pure mineral zinc oxide sunscreen along with a diverse blend of antioxidants known to boost skin’s environmental defenses and prevent premature aging of skin, all with an exceptionally silky, light-matte feel.
Collapse
What does it do?
An age-fighting formula that protects and fortifies skin. You’ll see a more even-looking skin tone from first use, and with daily use you’ll see that skin feels and looks firmer. This unbelievably light and silky moisturizer perfectly preps skin for makeup.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.
Collapse
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.

Love this!

Perfect for my combo skin. Not oily and looks great when it sets! Only tried a sample, but can't wait to buy full size!

Love this!

I wear this for day use, following serum application. It goes on easily, is virtually odourless, and looks very natural once it "sets." I like that it is SPF 30.

amazing product

I have used this product for three years. It works great under makeup or alone. It does not dry out my skin or leave me with an oil slick. Works well as a primer and extends the wear time of makeup. It does not cause me to break out: )

Best Facial Sunscreen Ever

5

I'm a bit of a sunscreen junkie - I've done a ton of research on the best ingredients, tried dozens of different formulas (all the way from super expensive to drugstore), and even though I'm naturally tan, I take every precaution to protect my skin from the aging damage of UV rays. This sunscreen has the best US approved sunscreen ingredient, zinc oxide, which protects not only against UVB rays but also has the best protection of any sunscreen ingredient against UVA rays. The texture is silky and does not leave a sticky residue like most sunscreens, and yet it isn't too matte either (no flakies showing up on dry skin). Although the tint is a smidge too light for me (I'm quite tan), it blends in fine and I use a bronzing power over it. I am prone to cystic acne and this sunscreen has never broken me out nor irritated my skin, and since I'm on prescription Retin-A Micro at night, I love knowing I'm using the best sunscreen I can during the day. This is my holy grail sunscreen and I'll never go back!!

I'm on my fourth bottle of this sunscreen and I know that I will be a lifelong user. I have tried and tested so many sunscreens, but I always come back to this one. Here are a few reasons: this sunscreen does not irritate my eyes at all, I love the tint (I am fair skinned), it is easy to layer makeup over this sunscreen (but I also wear it as a stand alone a lot), it doesn't smell like typical sunscreen, the formula is very refined-- it's not sloppy, there's no graininess, it goes on smooth. As someone with oily skin, I find that my forehead is sometimes still shiny even with the sunscreen, but this is by far the best sunscreen I've ever had.

I have been using PC products (skin balancing cleanser, skin balancing toner, 2% gel BHA exfoliant, skin balancing sunscreen and this tinted moisturizer) for over 5 years. I am almost thirty, I have OILY skin (everywhere, not just the T-zone) and have had the best skin I ever had with only a few larger pores on my cheeks near the nose. (Prior to PC products I used several different high-end and drug store brands and constantly had cystic acne and blackheads on the nose, cheek and chin areas.) I haven't worn foundation for ten years now, and this moisturizer is the most I will use if I feel like I want "coverage" but the reality is my skin is even toned as is. The tint helps give an even skin tone all day and the rest of the product helps to minimize pores, definitely minimize fine lines, and keeps skin from getting oily/shiny/greasy as well as some sun protection. However, I am FAIR (although not sensitive) and this tinted moisturizer is slightly darker than my fair/yellow/European/warm complexion, so I have to "dilute" it with some untinted moisturizer (I like Neutrogena's Oil-Free Moisture Sensitive Skin Ultra-Gentle Facial Moisturizer). While I love the "smoothing" or evening of skin tone effect of this moisturizer on my face, it is dark enough that there is an obvious difference in skin tone between my face and my neck. I would love for PC to produce a light/porcelain toned product similar to this moisturizer. If you're thinking about this product as a replacement for foundation or BB/CC cream, and you are any skin tone in between the extremely light and extremely dark, I highly recommend it. It is a little bit pricier (than drug-store) but a little goes a long way and PC is a brand you can trust. Just bring out a lighter version (and I'm sure darker ladies would love this as well if there was a darker version)!

Great for Oily skin

I love how light weight this moisturizer is. I have never been able to find a product that contains SPF 30 and doesn't leave me feeling greasy. The tint blends in well and doesn't leave a white sheen. I will definitely keep this on my auto-ship!

I have been using this moisturizing sunscreen for years. I've tried many others suggested by You Tube Influencers, from time to time, but always return to this.

I have used PC for nearly 20 years and never tried this and boy have I been missing out! This stuff is fantastic and makes my skin look beautiful. So beautiful, in fact, that I've gone without makeup and my skin looks great for hours! Another holy grail as far as I'm concerned....I don't know how Paula does it! I'm going broke buying all the holy grails but my skin looks amazing so who the hell cares lol
