Ratings & Reviews

HG sunscreen for oily, acne-prone skin!


This sunscreen is incredible! It is so lightweight and non-greasy that you would never guess it has sunscreen in it, let alone SPF 30! Usually, my skin is so oily that I need to blot my entire face every 1-2 hours, even with primer. But this sunscreen actually *reduces* the oiliness of my face (how is that possible?!), so much so that I hardly need to blot at all, and only need to blot my nose instead of my whole face. It has caused no breakouts whatsoever. I find that this wears great under several kinds of makeup — full coverage liquid foundation, moderate coverage stick foundation, light to moderate coverage powder foundation, and BB creams— and I don't even need to bother with primer (at least, not during springtime weather. Summer humidity may be different). The tint evens out my skin tone slightly, and looks natural on my fair-neutral undertone skin. I can't imagine finding anything better than this — it does everything I ask for in a sunscreen and more! I tried this first as a sample and loved it enough to purchase the full size. I also bought some extra samples for traveling to preserve precious space in my liquids bag.



Almost incredible


This is such a beautiful formula. It's smooth and liquid, goes on light, has just the right amount of moisture, has a barely-there tint that is even nicer than SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion, and feels like a drink of cool water on my easily-irritated skin. I absolutely love the daylights out of this. But... it's only SPF 30 and many companies, including SkinCeuticals, Clinique, and MDSolarSciences have come up with beautiful formulas that have SPF 50 using mineral sunblocks. Paula, if you could bump this up to an SPF 50, this would be hands-down the best facial sunblock of all time.

Nice except little oily in hot weather


Perfect for cooler weather when I dont Sweat and therefore no splotchiness unless warm/hot weather . I have combo skin so splotchiness may not occur with everyone, of course! If these prices (for such a small amount of product in oz per tube ) doesnt stop increasing, I'll have to soon swap to another brand. Unfortunately. Became hooked as a regular customer due to impressive pricing for quality but prices have gone up again and it's getting a little ridiculous :/



One of my favorite PC products


This is the best facial sunscreen I've tried so far. The texture is silky and lightweight, and it doesn't sting, smell toxic, or leave a sticky feel or super shiny finish like many sunscreens. The tint is so light that it has very little coverage. I have pale skin, and I normally blend a small amount of a more pigmented BB cream to create the coverage I want. So far I've tried blending this with two different products, and it's blended wonderfully.



Favorite Daytime Moisturizer EVER!


Let me start by saying I hate sunscreen. Always have. I hate the texture and I usually hate the way it feels on my skin. For that reason, I have not been as diligent in its use as I should have been except on occasions when I was going to be outdoors for extended periods of time. I tried several of PCs sunscreens in the past and hadn't found one that I loved. Although one or two of them didn't feel horrible, they seemed to cause my makeup to become oilier earlier in the day and often made my mascara smudge under my eyes. After striking out with 3 PC daytime moisturizers, I stopped trying. Although the rest of my routine consisted of PC products, I continued to skip on the sunscreen. In the last year or two, I stopped using PC products altogether and my skin care routine became all but non-existent. Recently I returned to PC skincare products and I am so glad I did! This sunscreen is everything I have searched for in a daytime moisturizer and I wish that I had tried it sooner. I apply it as the last step in my daytime routine and wait 5 minutes before I apply my foundation. It leaves my skin feeling mostly matte and not sticky. It does not make my skin oiler as the day goes on. Instead, it helps keep oil at bay, even after 8 plus hours. At the end of the day, I actually have more makeup left on my face that I ever did before using this sunscreen. There is practically no smell to this product at all which is surprising for a product that includes sunscreen. After being away and then returning to PC, I can now see very clearly how fantastic these products really are. I have oily skin and struggled with acne for many years when I was younger. The reality of it is that I will never have flawless skin. I have accepted this. However, PC products do exactly as their slogan says. They give me the best skin that I am realistically able to achieve without more extreme cosmetic procedures. Thank you, PC!




Could have been way better


It is a truly universal tint. However because it only uses mineral 13 percent zinc oxide not enough. I got severe burns in Indian Summer despite using a thick layer. I would use this if I am mostly at office all day not for a day in sun. The delivery system is not giving uniform coverage. If only it could increase the percentage of zinc oxide used and either create a texture similar to replenix ultimatte or change the packaging to a bottle with a mixer ball like sheseido, the zinc would be so much more evenly spread in formulae. This would be unbeatable.




EXACTLY what I have been searching for!


I have been searching high and low for a daily moisturizer with SPF (at least 30) that is more mattifying and less greasy, as I use it under a tinted BB cream. I was also looking for one OK to use on acne-prone skin that is also starting to show fine lines and has large pores (I'm 31). This is it!!! It glides on, is not greasy at all, and doesn't leave my skin shiny. It looks totally natural and enhances my skin tone. It is tinted, which I was initially concerned about since I plan to layer with a different moisturizer. However, the tint doesn't differ in application from any other untinted daily moisturizer and leaves a nice invisible finish. I'm incredibly impressed!

Big fan


This is my favorite daytime moisturizer. It's a multipurpose product: moisturizer, sunscreen and light tinted coverage. It's not greasy and doesn't irritate my skin even being a Retin A user. It doesn't make the oily areas of my face feel worse and it doesn't make me breakout. I apply it every morning even on my eyelids without any signs of irritation.




Paula has done it again!!!


I LOVE this product! It does all that it claims and more. You have to shake it well before applying to mix it up. It does come out a little fast, so be careful when squeezing the tube. The coverage is beautiful and sheer. The slight white cast due to the titanium & zinc oxide as sun protective active ingredients quickly goes away, which was is a rare trait. Skin is left feeling smoothe and looking matte. I will be using this product year round!!


Charleston, SC


I would buy this product again.


I love this product. I wish it were a little cheaper. The slight tint is no problem. It is mainly used to offset the white cast. I find that it evens out my skin tone. When I add the smoothing primer serum on top, I can get away with not using a foundation.
