Additional Information

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.
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.
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

Gorgeous but


I got a sample of this and it was the THE NICEST moisturizers I've ever used. It went on so nicely and had this velvet finish that made my skin look so smooth. I love the amount of tint BUT my only complaint is the shade. It would be good in the winter months but for the majority of the year I use self tanner and this just leaves my skin looking much too pale - especially during this season. Would love love LOVE if you added another shade or two because I would buy it in a flash! Anyone with porcelain skin should definitely try this.

Favorite Mineral SPF


I adore this. I don't have very oily skin, more combination. My solution is after cleansing and toning, I apply my serum and then a layer of the Skin Balancing Moisture Gel. After, I apply this SPF. It lasts all day, doesn't flake or get dry. I love it way more than the Hydralight which has never worked for my face. Suggestion, get samples of these different products. I just went ahead and got samples of all of the SPF for combination skin. That way, I can really get an idea of which products works the best. What company does that? Love!!



I wanted to love this so bad


I gave it 3 stars because I absolutely loved that this moisturizer was the only thing to control my shiny face but unfortunately it left me looking ashy/pink my neck looked dark compared to my face and I'm light skinned also I don't know if it was this that caused me to get Whitehead's on my cheeks ...but I also noticed my acne scars diminished a little ...the white cast though I can't get past that but I really wanted to love this I'm sad



Love it!


I love this moisturizer so much - it feels great on my skin, provides a little coverage, and has a nice non-greasy finish.



Better than expected


My skin loves this moisturizer!!!! Goes on so smoothly and I have better make up days when I wear this



Mix with Calm spf if too dark


I have very acne prone sensitive skin and can't use any chemical sunscreen. But every mineral sunscreen that I have used in the past has broken me out. I live in a perennially sunny climate so I was getting pretty desperate for a sunscreen that works! PC mineral sunscreens for n/o skin are the only ones that work for me. I have a light yellow toned skin and the the Resist Super Light is way too dark & leaves brown orange streaks on my face. The Calm spf 30 Mineral Moisturizer leaves a slight white cast on the skin so I just mix equal amounts of the two in the palm of my hand and apply. The Calm has a shinier texture so it is shinier than if I wore the Resist alone so I just powder lightly afterwards.



I looked like a circus clown!!


The tint in this product was so white and chalky I never even got out of the house wesring it!! . I don't know how anyone could find it acceptable. I rubbed it in carefully after applying the recommended amount, but still the consistency and color of it didn't get any better. I returned it almost immediately. Usually when I find a Paula's Choice product is unsatisfactory- like the terrible, non- functioning pump on the face wash- I keep trying, not wanting to go to the trouble of returning it. But this was so awful, I didn't even want it in the house!!! These products are getting so pricey, keeping a stash of those that don't work isn't feasible any longer. There are really too many to choose from these days.

New love for Paula's Sunscreen


I have eczema, sensitive, combo-dry skin in summer and dry skin in winter. I used to use La Roche Posay mineral sunscreen but found out recently it only has titanium dioxide (and no zinc oxide) so was in market to shop for a mineral sunscreen (that has zinc oxide) that my sensitive skin can use. This resist super-light sunscreen was mentioned in two of my favorite You-tubers' skin routine so I went ahead ordered it. I have been using it for 2 weeks and it goes on smooth & liquid and the tint goes away once you spread it out. I enjoy using it but deduct one star because of its SPF30 since not sure if it's enough protection for CA summer. I may layer La Roche Posay with it to boost its SPF. Other than that, I highly recommend this sun screen to anyone (even people with eczema).

Seems like a great idea


Based on all of the positive reviews I thought this would be a great product. I decided to purchase a couple of the sample products and try before buying the full size. Unfortunately this product dried me out and my skin broke out a little. I dont think the tint looked very good on my skin and the dryness was definitely odd. So far the only SPF I can use from PC is the mineral one. All of the others just dont help me.

Fabulous -Holy Grail -Replaced 5 Products


This is my holy grail product. It is my eyelid sunscreen, under eye concealer, pore eliminating primer, mattifying foundation, and moisturizer —all in one. It's replaced 5 products. My skin looks more even after just one week. It smooths my skin and negates the redness beside my nose and dark circles under eyes. This one product has simplified my morning routine, and now it's a pleasure to put on sunscreen. I'm an every-day-even-cloudy-days sunscreen user. My extremely fair skin is easily damaged by strong UV, so it is super important this stuff goes on beautifully over my eyelids and immediately under my lash line without smudging mascara. Buy it. No, buy 3 tubes.
