I have very dry skin and and while most priber don't cause me problems, suncreens do. This does not bother my skin and adds and extra layer of sunscreen in addition to the one I apply after moisturizing.. I am very happy it on auto renewal becuause I don't want to run out.

I just bought a trial size tube of this, and I think I will definitely be ordering the full size. I have been looking for daily sunscreen protection for my very dry skin, but everything seems to make my wrinkles seem more pronounced and sit in the lines on my face. Either that or it's far too oily. I haven't had much luck with moisturizers that contain spf, they are generally too sticky even for my dry skin or else they don't do much in the moisturizing department at all. As you can see I've searched high and low for something that has a great balance, and I think I finally found it with this primer! It glides on like a dream and melts into my skin so quickly, and it doesn't ruin the efficacy of the moisturizer I put on before it, which I was worried about. I can still use the moisturizer that works best for me, and the primer only enhances it when I apply it on top. Love! My skin is soft and happy. I hope Paula's Choice keeps making this great stuff forever!

Love it! Make a bigger size!

I love this sunscreen. I wear it under a pricey matte foundation that would not work well for me if it was not for this primer. I love it as a sunscreen so much that I wish it could be rolled out into a much larger body version.

LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!

I am placing my order for my third bottle now! I never could find a sunscreen that went well under my foundation. I found a primer that worked for me, but it did not have sunscreen. This primer is great under my makeup and takes care of my sunscreen!! I am 50 years old and my skin shows the years of tanning I did in my youth so I use a full coverage foundation with SPF. My morning routine is as follows: I wash, tone with a PC toner (I haven´t found my favorite yet); exfoliate with a PC liquid 2% BHA (I´m using Resist Daily Pore-Refining Treatment 2% BHA this month); and then I apply this primer. I do let it fully dry/absorb before applying foundation, about 10-15 minutes. My foundation applies beautifully and I´ve got my sunscreen!

Clear and light without irritation but great sun protection

This could even be marketed as a daily sun protection product. It is light and clear. The texture is such that one would like applying it daily. It is also a non irritating SPF product. I have used it by itself and also over my Skin Balancing SPF 30.

Does everything you want it to do and nothing that you don't

This clear, silky primer glides on easily and leaves a smooth, even finish for foundation application.

I use it as sunscreen

I bought it for the sunscreen aspect-and now I wear it every day! Honestly, I really don't need foundation because I have no brown or red spots (thanks to using Paulas Choice for five years). Anyways there were days I cheated and left the house with nothing on my face because sunscreens are heavy,, greasy, thick. I love this-I slather it on as sunscreen and I can't even feel it. Love it. Very nice product

Amazing primer for my combination skin

5

I received this product a few months ago along with a fairly good size order of Skin Balancing Face Toner and BHA/AHA exfoliants. This was a free product in the box and I'm quite impressed with how well this made my face feel and look with all my redness around my nose, enlarged pores and fine lines on my forehead and around my mouth. It has such a lightweight feeling that surpasses any other face primer I have in my collection. I do wear this when I go out on the weekends and leave my less expensive primers for during the week which work as well as this product but this does just a wee bit more for my skin:) A big bonus is the Spf 30 which my other primers do not have. I wear a high spf foundation on top of those primers because I love my skin! The packaging is a cute, small grey metallic tube that's a convenient size and dispenses the right amount of primer to my liking. There is no scent which is also a bonus and once applied it doesn't leave my skin tacky like a lot of other primers do! My pores are noticeably smaller and the fine lines seem to blur out which is also really nice...foundation goes on incredibly smooth and there is no cakiness or dry patches around my nose or under my eyes...Awesome, awesome product!

THE sunscreen for me!!!!

This product is what has made me a daily user of sunscreen! I have other PC sunscreen products, and I can smell and feel them, which makes me not want to use them. I love the gel, though it does feel oily-ish when first applied, however, that truly disappears completely and leaves my face smooth and soft. Added bonus is that it makes my undereye concealer and powder blush go on more smoothly. It leaves no shiny sunscreen look. LOVE IT!
