Additional Information

Why is it different?
RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 perfectly couples a water-light texture with proven broad-spectrum sun protection, but this advanced formula goes further by including key antioxidants that research has shown skin needs to feel firmer and look younger and more even toned.

What does it do?
Provides effective UVA/UVB protection plus hydration for a healthier, younger-looking complexion. Its satin-matte finish leaves skin feeling smooth and hydrated, never slick or greasy. It is a daytime anti-aging moisturizer those with oily skin will want to apply every day! 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 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

The one and only


Well, i have been testing so many sunscreens since i did start using Retin A but this is the only one i can use. If a sunscreen is too rich, it will make me break out. If physical i will be irritated or look like a ghost. This is perfect. Also excellent under make up. I did heard it might be discontinued, which would be a disaster



Best, lightest sun protection I've found


Just moisturizing enough, but not too heavy. Covers a large area of my face with just about 10 drops. Light and effective.


Bat Area, ca

Best daily SPF


Just ordered my second tube of this! It's the only moisturizer with sun protection I've tried that doesn't feel heavy on my skin or make me break out. Perfect amount of moisture for my combination skin, thin enough that it absorbs immediately instead of needing to be rubbed in like most sunscreens, and sits beautifully under my makeup (NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer). I'm really glad that this doesn't come in a pump, as it's much easier to get every last drop out of the tube. To avoid spilling it everywhere and make sure I'm using the proper amount, I squeeze a little pool about the size of a quarter on the back of my hand, in the shallow depression created between my thumb joint and the rest of my hand when my thumb is extended. I then use the fingers of my dominant hand to apply the product to my face. This method works very well for me, and I've never had problems with spilling.

EXACTLY what I was looking for!!!


I had been looking for a daytime anti-aging moisturizer with SPF for combination/oily skin. My skin is normal in the Winter time, but in the Summer, it can be more oily in the t-zone area. I was using a sample of the Dr. Perricone Photo Plasma with SPF, and although it was a good product and worked, it is also very expensive. I came across this product on the website, and actually preferred the ingredients in this product more, so I decided to try it. I bought it when Paula's Choice had the 20% off offer + free shipping (because why not?) so it was a good deal! I have been using this every single day for the past week (with and without makeup) and I can say, I have found exactly what I was looking for! This hydrates my skin, so I never have dry, clingy patches, it moisturizes, it actually absorbs so nicely, not too flat of a matte, but not super dewy either, just perfect. The smell isn't strong, it has great ingredients and anti-aging properties, and it doesn't leave my face white/chalky! It also doesn't transfer to clothing or make your makeup crease during the day, if you wear any on top. I highly recommend this for those who have combination and/or oily skin types, and those looking for an anti-aging, light moisturizer.

Not satisfied


I love most Paula's Choice products, but am dissappointed in this moisturizer. It is very thin in consistency. It does not moisturize as well as advertised and is definitely not hydrating. Wish I knew this before buying it. I would have chosen another moisturizer.

This is the best sunscreen in the world, IF it suits you!


I was absolutely in love with this sunscreen, it is ultra light, truly is the best sunscreen on the market, if it suits. However, it makes my skin breakout. I am so sad that this sunscreen did not suit my skin as in every other way it was perfect. I hate wearing sunscreens because they smell, are heavy and greasy, but this one has none of those issues. So sad, but I would like to return and ask for a refund.



Another Holy Grail product for me!


This is fantastic for combination norma/oily skin. It is very fluid, and not thick or sticky. I use it every single day on my face. For those that complain about it irritating your eyes - you should not use any chemical sunscreen near your eyes. Use a mineral sunscreen instead. Problem solved. I use this product on my face (normal to oily skin), and I use the PC Calm Mineral Moisturizer SPF 30 Normal to Dry around my eyes. For me the skin around my eyes is dry. PC also have a Calm product for normal to oily skin should your eyelids be oily. I like this combination of the two sunscreens so much that I just keep to this even for a night time event.

Fantastic product!


This sunscreen does exactly as it promises. It is light and non-greasy and feels great on my skin. It provides sun protection without causing irritation or breakouts. Other customers complain that it is runny but that is the consistency of the formula and that is what makes it so light and easy to wear without feeling greasy or heavy.


Vancouver Canada

Fantastic Facial Sunscreen!


I can't say enough great things about this product. It's the perfect sunscreen for my fair, combination skin. It is very light in body, strong in performance. I layer it with other skincare products under my make-up and it doesn't bead up, feel greasy, give shine or a white mask. I also wear it alone to go outside for workouts. It provides the perfect amount of light moisturizing and it doesn't feel heavy when I sweat! I have always loved Paula's Choice products, but this one blew my mind! Please make it forever.




Best Sunscreen I've Ever Used


I've tried every sunscreen out there in an attempt to find the best sunscreen. This is it. I always try out new sunscreens just to see if anything could possibly top this. Nothing ever has. Works well under makeup, looks great bare faced. I wear it everyday because sunscreen is the key to great skin.
