    Naayak - Best sun protection cream
    This is the best !! I have tried so many sun protection creams and none of them was good for me, I finally found Paulas choice spf 50 moisturiser and it’s the best. I love it. Thank you.

    Customer Care: Hi Naayak, thanks for your lovely review. I'm so glad you're loving our Resist SPF 50 Moisturizer! Its light, fluid texture is an ideal way to get sun protection without feeling weighed down or greasy - perfect for those who are acne-prone! Kind regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer Care
    Faye - Not A Good Base For Make Up
    I chose this product as I was after a daily moisturiser with a high SPF that was anti-aging and also going to control my oily t-zone I get throughout the day. My skin doesn’t take the layering of a toner, serum, moisturiser/SPF and primer well before make up so hoped for a moisturiser/primer/spf hybrid as it advertised a Matt finish.
    When I don’t wear make up this moisturiser is lovely and I agree it does leave my skin smooth and hydrated.
    However I strongly disagree with the claim that it leaves a soft matte finish, my face is so shiny after applying and drying down, so much so that it seeps through my foundation and makes it slide off, especially my t-zone area.
    For the price, I’m disappointed I’m not going to be able to wear this when I want to wear make up, which is practically every day

    Customer Care: Hi Faye, thank you for taking the time to write about your experience with our Resist Youth-Extending SPF 50 Moisturizer. While I'm glad that you enjoy the texture of this product and that is leaves you hydrated, I'm sorry that you don't enjoy using this product under your makeup. I recommend ensuring that the moisturizer has fully dried before going on to apply your makeup. If this still doesn't work for you, consider trying our Skin Balancing SPF 30 Moisturizer which is our most mattifying daytime moisturizer aimed for oily skin! You may also like our Smoothing Primer Serum SPF 30, which is a great option to use before applying makeup. Please reach out if you'd like any more advice! Kind regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer Care
    Molly - The first sun cream I’ve ever enjoyed using!!
    I have tried LOTS of different suncreams/SPF over the years and have always felt shiny or sticky... recently swapped to using mineral spf to reduce this and just ended up with a heap of white cast. This is the first SPF I actually want to use on my face and enjoy using! Applies amazingly and doesn’t leave any tackiness & not noticeable on the skin.

    Dear Molly, thank you for taking the time to write a positive review about this product and lovely to hear that you are enjoying it so much! This one has an SPF 50 which is a real plus, and it absorbs beautifully into the skin. Personally, this is one of my favorites, and I trust it will be for you soon too. Kind regards, Denisa - Paula's Choice Customer Care Team
    Bel - Could be better
    This product has room for improvement, I tried it out as part of the travel kit and I found it made my face quite greasy which did cause breakouts. It definitely protects from the sun but it doesn’t sit nicely under make-up which is a shame. It is hydrating though and isn’t too bad if you don’t wear any make-up with it however I feel the consistency is off.

    Customer Care: Hi Bel, thanks for this review! Sorry to hear that this moisturizer isn't the right one for you. If you find your skin is particularly oily, you may prefer our Skin Balancing SPF 30 Moisturizer or consider trying out Skin Smoothing Primer before applying your make-up! If you contact our team, who may be able to help you return this product for a refund. Kind regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer Care
    Miki - Love it
    I’ve been using this for months now and I absolutely love it. I have combo/oily skin and I’m in my mid-twenties.
    It leaves 0 white residue on my beard/stubble, it’s very hydrating, and on application leaves a very nice natural finish.
    Toward the day I do get a bit oily and I know it’s the sunscreen, but considering I’ve not ever burnt once when applying this, and my skin likes it, I’ll keep on repurchasing.
    Nicely done, PC.

    Customer Care: Hi Miki, thanks for leaving a review of our Resist Anti-Aging SPF 50 Moisturizer! This lightweight moisturizer is a great hydrating option for those with oily or acne-prone skin while providing excellent sun protection. If you find yourself getting oily throughout the day, have a look at our Shine Stopper! This is applied after moisturizer to leave your skin matte all day! Kind regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer Care
    Isabella - A suncream I want to use!
    I really like this. It feels nice on application and it doesn't impact makeup. It evens my skin tone and I'm enjoying the ritual of applying this. No breakouts, seems to play nicely with my other products.
    The only problem I have is that it sometimes feels like there's an air bubble in the tube. This means that sometimes you have to really squeeze to get the product out, or the bubble pops midway through squeezing, so the product squirts. Otherwise, I really like this and will repurchase it!

    Customer Care: Hi Isabella, thanks for your review! The weightless texture is perfect for hydrating under makeup while avoiding breakouts and greasiness and I'm so glad to hear you've experienced this. Thanks for your feedback on the packaging - we are always looking for ways to improve our products! Kind regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer Care Team
    Daphne - Very runny
    I received a sample of this moisturiser and applied it this morning. It is extremely runny so mind how you squeeze it out. My full length mirror is now ready for a laze in the sun... Apart from that, no issues. Yet.

    Hi Daphne! Thank you for taking the time to let us know your thoughts on our Resist Anti-Aging Moisturiser SPF 50. This lightweight lotion does have a liquid consistency and leaves skin smooth, hydrated and doesn't cause it to feel oily. We hope you're enjoying the many benefits this product provides. Kind regards, Shannon - Paula's Choice Customer Care
    Hannah - Life Changing!
    I'm very prone to breakouts and every single SPF I have used on my face has caused breakouts! I know it's been the SPF as they're always different to my hormonal breakouts - instead of being deep under the skin cysts, SPF has always given me a bunch of surface spots within a day or two of using and they stop as soon as I stop using. I have tried chemical sun protection, I have tried mineral sun protection, I have tried every SPF face moisturiser under the sun, including a bunch of other Paula's Choice ones. ALL of them have broken me out. UNTIL NOW!! THIS IS A LIFE CHANGER AND I BEG YOU TO NEVER EVER STOP MAKING IT AND TO NEVER EVER CHANGE THE INGREDIENTS, PAULA'S CHOICE!! I have been using this for 6 months now. Every single morning. And not a single SPF related break out! Not even one! THANK YOU Paula's Choice for making this! I can finally go out in the sun knowing my skin is protected AND without having to give myself breakouts to do so. I will buy this forever! :)

    Customer Care: Hi Hannah. Thank you so much for this great review of our Resist Anti-Aging SPF 50 Moisturizer. The weightless lotion texture is perfect for preventing breakouts while providing great sun protection and a light hydration. We're so happy to hear that you've had such a positive experience with this product and look forward to seeing you back in our webshop again soon. Kind regards, Shannon - Paula's Choice Customer Care Team.
    Mel - An absolute game changer
    I have been trawling through moisturisers with an spf to find one that doesn’t feel heavy or greasy on my oily skin and this is the one! So light and turns matte after application- no greasiness at all. I use it after cleanser and toner and it is just fantastic. No need for additional primer or foundation and light enough that your skin does not feel suffocated- thank you so much Paula’s Choice!

    Customer Care: Hi Mel, thanks for this great review of our Resist Anti-Aging SPF 50 Moisturizer. The weightless lotion texture is perfect for a light hydration with strong sun protection while avoiding greasiness. Make sure to check out our Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Moisturizer for the same lightweight moisturizing effect in the evening. Kind regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer Care Team.
    Matt - It's SPF 50 so...
    3 stars because it's SPF 50, other than that I don't really like this product that much. Makes my skin so oily, and the smell is horrible. Been using it for 4 months.

    Hi Matt, thanks for your comments! We are are sorry to hear this did not work for you. Everyone's skin is different and we understand this. Contact customer care who will be able to assist you further. Kind regards, Adele - Paula's Choice Customer Care.
    Cristina - The perfect Product
    I should start by saying that I never leave reviews but I was so impressed with Paula`s Choice that I have to inform other people that might have the same issues as I did that the rosacea line might work for them too. In fact what made me try this brand were the reviews.

    I love a few products from Paula’s Choice but I have to say that this is my favourite by far. I have been struggling for years to find a sunscreen that works with my skin type. I have rosacea oily skin but with dry patches in the same time and so it is so difficult to find a product that won’t be oily and/or itchy.
    My face would be so itchy and covered in tiny pustules by the end of the day.

    I think I tried in 3 years since I have rosacea over 20 different brands and product and none of it worked. It made my skin so bad, covered in pustules that I decided I can’t use sunscreen anymore.

    This moisturiser is great for my skin and I can use make up on top without being oily. This is such a brilliant sun screen. Thank you Paula`s Choice, you saved my skin!

    Customer Care: Hi Cristina! Thank you for your positive review! It's great to hear that you find our Resist line works great with your rosacea. It's so important to have a good SPF for protection, but also important that is works with your skin and not against it! With your rosacea, I would also recommend the products from the Calm line. If you need advice here, feel free to send us a message. We are happy to help you! Kind regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer Care Team
    Abi - Disappointing, didn’t protect from sun
    I’ve been using this daily for 3 months but unfortunately over the few hot days we’ve had this week my face has gone red in places and the melasma I had mostly gotten rid of after a year of expensive treatment has come back. I am very sad about this as melasma is a nightmare to get rid of, and I’m upset that I trusted this sun screen to protect my skin from the sun and it failed to do so.

    Customer Care: Hi Abi, thank you for sharing your experience with us - we're sorry to hear this didn't work as expected for you! Unfortunately, an SPF alone cannot prevent melasma. Please contact a member of our Customer Care team, who can assist you with a possible alternative. Kind regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer Care.
    Rica - Nice suncream
    Not giving 5 stars as it is advertised as a moisturiser with SPF, but it definitely feels like a suncream. Great as suncream but I don't like it for daily use as it's a bit heavy and does grease a little bit.
    Josie - Best SPF
    I have oily, sensitive, and acne-prone skin. I have tried a huge amount of SPF in my mission to protect my skin without aggravating my acne etc. That also includes copious amounts of south Korean sunscreens, which have very light textures although their SPF protection is controversial. This is perfect and beats them all. Lightweight but still hydrating. Sinks in beautifully and provides a beautiful base for makeup. My makeup actually looks better when I wear this. I hope it never gets discontinued or changed - brilliant product, thank you!
    MiraC - Been using this for a few years....
    I'm 53, with good skin which can be ever so slightly on the dry side in winter. I also do a lot of outdoor sport all year round so my skin should look like it takes a beating. I use this spf 50 everyday, even though I have olive skin, which people assume doesn't need sun protection in winter. It doesn't leave that white cast that some spf's do and it absorbs beautifully, really matte and un-greasy, and works well under makeup (if I wear it). I've been using this for about 3 or 4 years now and won't even bother looking for another moisturiser.
    Luvia - In love
    I am amazed by Paula's skincare. I got travel sizes in some anti ageing combination skin products. Love them all. This liquid moisturizer is runny but still works miracles. My very dry skin has changed overnight. I learned a few things - even if very dry aging skin products need to be picked based in skin type; in my case not dry skin but combi skin. And also full routine including exfoliating is a must. Skin feels healthy looks shinny and hopefully in time my open pores will reduce. Already ordered more normal size of this.
    Ellie - My go to
    Gorgeously thin SPF, so easy to reapply throughout the day! Gentle filters for if my skin is feeling a little sensitive, doesnt break out my acne prone skin either, yet another PC staple! I personally use this after a moisturiser instead of just this alone, but in the summer months this might be enough
    Kay - Poor packaging
    Love the product however like other reviewers I have experienced the tube splitting on every tube I’ve ordered, despite not over tightening, resulting in wasted product. Very frustrating.
    Nicki - Cannot live without it
    Hands down the best high factor, facial SPF I have ever tried- I have combination, acne prone skin and I cannot recommend this product enough! It is a beautiful, lightweight, milky texture than does not ball up when make up is applied on top of it. In summer this is all I need and in winter it sits perfectly on top of whatever moisturiser I put underneath. Thank you Paula's Choice!!!
    Cat - Wouldn't recommend for sensitive skin.
    I really wanted to love this - it's so lightweight, and spreads so beautifully on the skin. However, I have sensitive skin and whenever I put this on, after a few minutes my whole face would become red, itchy and inflamed. Sadly I haven't had a reaction like this to a product before, so I'm not sure what I'm allergic to. I tried it on clean dry skin, and also over the top of a moisturiser and still the same result.

    Customer care:
    Hi there! We're sorry the Resist Anti-Aging Moisturiser SPF 50 wasn't a fit for you! Be sure to contact our Customer Care for assistance.
    ark - Great last step for the morning
    I have been using this for a little while and it's a great last-step. No breakouts or redness (as part of my overall routine, it's been keeping those away!). I recommend using it sparingly as a little goes a long way. Use too much and it might sit too heavily on the skin. Use the right amount though and it gives great results! It's not a great smell, but not entirely unpleasant - it simply smells like sunscreen. I'm not docking a star for that though, the scent dissipates quickly, and if I want to smell good I can apply fragrance myself! ;)
    SarahM81 - Best spf I’ve found
    This is now my HG spf, I bought the travel size first then repurchased the full size as I loved it so much. I’m 39 normal/dehydrated prone to congestion & hormonal acne break outs, wear a full face of make up every day. Lots of spfs I’ve tried have either broken me out, made my acne worse, piled or just not sat nicely underneath my make up, this ticks all the boxes for me.
    Kurt - Decent
    This is a decent sunscreen. I was originally going to buy the CLEAR SPF30 moisturiser but it was out of stock. A quick check in the frequently asked questions saw this has the same ingredients but it’s just a higher SPF which isn’t a bad thing. This didn’t break me out or give me blackheads. It dries to a semi-matte finish but it isn’t mattifying. I found that no matter which way I used it, it was wasn’t the best under makeup. It’s not super moisturising but I have oily skin so I was glad of this. Would I repurchase? No. There are cheaper and more versatile SPFs for my skin type and that make better primers. Yes Paula’s choice does other SPFs and particularly a SPF makeup primer but none that seem to match my needs (good under makeup and SPF50)
    Krowe - Holygrail
    Oh my gosh, it’s a must have. It’s light and doesn’t break me out. I am getting another bottle as soon as it’s back in stock.
    Motoe - Sunscreen for those that hate sunscreen
    A beautiful lightweight sunscreen that doesn't break me out. If you hate sunscreen and had been avoiding wearing it (like I had) this is perfect!
    Stacey - Wonderful
    I love this product, it’s the only sunscreen with SPF 50 that does not break out my combination, blemish prone skin. When I first used it I was worried as it really isn’t thick or heavy like other SPF’s, but my word it is brilliant and it’s the only one I will ever use. Plus makes my skin feel soft. Thank you Paula’s choice.
    Leandro - Lightweight, effective and nourishing
    This truly is the best SPF product I have used. With (seriously) high antioxidant levels to boost the performance of the already impressive SPF 50, I can go through my day knowing that this product will not only protect me from UV rays, but also from pollution. Another aspect about this product that I LOVE is that it really does minimise the appearance of my pores and it spreads a soft and unnoticeable, white tint over the darker and redder patches of my skin. Being someone who does not wear makeup, this is the perfect final step in my skincare routine to leave me glowing for the rest of the day. The only drawback is that - yes, like the other reviews have said - it is not that great for those with really (and I do mean really!) oily skin; and I find that by the end of the day, my skin is rather unnervingly oily. However, considering that nearly all the other SPF products on the market are atrociously formulated, this product is a miracle product in terms of performance, even though it may make my skin a little oily.
    Nat - Great
    Amazing to find a good spf 50 that sinks easily into the skin and doesnt have any whitecast. It IS very slippery, almost like water, so something to get used to, but worth it if you are looking for a lightweight spf. Only issue is that when I sweat, it almost always falls into the sweat and into my eyes!
    gucci - NOT FOR ME
    I have combination skin, with an oily t-zone. I was excited to try these products but unfortunately using their combination regime it has made skin even more oily, my make up is sliding off after 2 hrs. Luckily, I bought the samples, which is really good, not many places do this.
    Gash - Ivy Legue
    First of all this is not mattifying product. BUT it's the one the most lightweight sunscreens around. I spent money to luxury sunscreens from french houses or dermatologist acclaimed brands and their lightweight fluid was a matter of alcohol denat. I am a person with oily skin with greek genes but living in the UK at the moment. Let's face it, oily skin after a couple of hours will be oily again the secret is to be committed to a product that doesn't make you more oily. Also, the most of the mattifying products make the face look un-natural and a moisturizer cannot replace the job or an oil absorbing powder. This sunscreen it's like a veil and the ingredients are outstanding. I am tired of layering tons of products just to make sure I've got the most of the antioxidants. Choose your favourite anti oxidant serum for an even extra boost and this sunscreen and you will be pleased. Also, skin needs some kind of training, retinol and niancidamide or vitamin c can make skin more sensitive or drying. Well formulated products can really help those ingredients. So(!) Anti aging along with SPF and light fluid? Not easily found out there and I think Paula Begoun knows it already with the making of excellent ingredient products.
    Kon28 - Oily for oily skin
    The fluid is really lightweight but whitin an hour my face looks so greasy like putting highlighters all over it. I really wanted to like this because I really like the ingredients but it’s a big no how it looks over my skin. The three stars are for the ingredients. Really disappointed in terms of how they advertise it.

    Mila - Decent spf moisturiser at last
    This is probably the only SPF moisturiser on the market that doesn't break me out. It is PERFECT for a holiday when you need that extra protection from the sun. It can be a bit drying and can sting when I apply it, so I tend to use it only when I know I will be out and about in the sun for more than 30 minutes. I wouldn't recommend using it daily though.
    Alexis - Worst product own from Paula’s choice
    Worst Paula’s choice product I have used.
    In the husle of planning for my annual beach holiday I forgot to order my Paula’s choice Resist superlight spf 30 so I thought, since I live in London, there must be a shop that has my fav brand. Where surprise surprise only Selfridges had some products(not all). I did my research before so I knew this product will not mattify as superlight does but I chose to trust Paulas’s choicr products as I use them for years now. Also, description of the product says it goes for oily and combination skin too, which got me thinking it can’t be that bad and I will work out the shinning surfaces if any. Even the Selfridges beauty adviser explained this is way better for the summer period than Resist superlight(maybe because they didn’t sell it there, but I thought about this later, I just trusted her).
    Oh well, Resist Youth extending spf 50 is a white paste that applied on the skin makes it glow a bit to much which is not the best for a combination skin during summer but I thought my foundation and a bit of pounder will sort it. The worst part was when after I applied my foundation, the white paste started to form small white particles which made my entire face looked like I have dry, chapped skin and the foundation was creasing with joy everywhere!
    Entire makeup looked cakey, before powder 😐
    As a plus, they didn’t had the product in sample size so I had to buy the whole cream.
    If I could I would ask for a refund!

    Customer Care: Hi Alexis, we are sorry to hear about your experience using this product. We will contact you personally about this.
    M - very light weight. amazing
    very light weight, easy to smooth over skin and love the high spf! Been using this and the other resist tinted spf for almost 3 years now...xx
    Lulu - The best moisturiser I have tried
    This is an amazing product. All other moisturisers just made my oily skin worse and my foundation just slid off after a couple of hours. This one creates a lovely base for foundation, super light, leaves a matt finishes and foundation just glides over. Also my make up is still in place at the end of the day. I can hardly believe how good this is. The search is over.
    Andie - My favourite Paula's Choice product
    This is my skincare staple - I'm in my 40s and like to wear a product with a high spf every day. I also have oily skin that is prone to small breakouts and other spf products I've tried have felt greasy on my skin. This doesn't feel greasy at all, it has quite a runny, milky texture which absorbs really well into my skin. It doesn't make the skin matte but it doesn't make it more greasy, I sometimes add a mineral powder over the top before applying eye makeup. The only reason I haven't given this 5 stars is that I use it every day so it is quite expensive compared to some other brands - but it works and there's no animal testing so I'm probably a lifelong user of this product!

    KateP - Great SPF and moisturizer
    I don't generally like putting SPF on my face - they're usually heavy and greasy. But I tried samples of this a few times last summer while on sunny vacations, and I absolutely loved it. It protected my skin and provided a good amount of moisture. My sensitive skin was not irritated at all. My makeup went on just fine after application, and I felt like my skin had a nice dewy (but not greasy) look to it. Definitely plan on getting a full bottle for this summer!
    AmySam - AMAZING
    This product is simply AMAZING .Lightweight, non greasy. Looks beautiful on the skin. And you can apply makeup as normal after application. What more could you want :) very impressed :)
    JJ - The best high SPF moisturiser I've used thus far....
    I've using this moisturiser for a while and I've yet find another that works as well for me. For such a high SPF this is very lightweight on the skin and is non-greasy. It blends into the skin well without leaving grey/white cast (I am black with medium dark skin tone) works very well under makeup. whilst it's not greasy, it's also not a matt finish -you could get round this with a matt primer though if you're on the far end of the oily spectrum.
    Alannah - Lightweight protection for your face
    This is my go-to spf from Paula's Choice. I have combination skin, and it works great for using all over my face, neck, etc. I love the consistency, and find it goes on great underneath my makeup. I've used nearly all Paula's Choice spf moisturisers, but this is my favourite because of the high spf, lightweight feel on the skin, and the fact it 'balances' out my skin types.
    Trini - Greasy, sticky, feels bad on my skin
    Unfortunately this does not suit me at all. After application my face looks greasy and coarse and feels sticky and uncomfortable. This happens even with a tiny amount of product. It also stings around my eyes. I have persisted for a week but will now stop using it. Pity, as the other two products that I bought at the same time are pleasant to use and seem to be helping my skin.

    Milly - Light
    I love this SPF as it's light and non-greasy and goes on easily on top of other products/serums. Probably not for those with very dry skin!
    Silvia - The smell....
    I just tried it and will not try it for the 2nd time! After applying it, I could not wait to get it off my face, I just could not stand the unpleasant smell. I generally use fragrance-free stuff on my face, but while this does not appear to have fragrance, it does have a smell and it's just...somewhat bleah.
    I cannot say anything about its effectiveness, but people with fragrance/smell issues, do be careful.

    Customer Care: Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear of your experience with this product. All of our products are 100% fragrance free. What your wife smells is the scent of one or more of the ingredients (raw materials) used for the production of this product. This smell can vary from batch to batch. Of course this smell can be interpreted differently from one customer to the next based on their sensitivity level. Please contact our customer care team for an alternative product recommendation.
    Jodie - lightweight-doesn't break me out
    i am on to my second bottle of this spf now. lasts forever! takes a while to get used to how watery the consistency is but this is a must for acne-prone sufferers like myself so i don't mind. it just means you have to be careful not to squeeze too much and waste it.
    It doesn't break me out nor does it "gunk" up like some moisturizers can when you apply make up. leaves a nice fresh base for foundation. i just make sure i always leave a few minutes after applying my BHA or BHA moisturizer before i apply this and then also before i apply make up. I feel good knowing i am protecting my skin every day from sun damage.
    Amanda - Nope, not for me!
    Bought the trial size, or rather two of them, as the full size was out of stock, it still is which makes me wonder if it's getting the chop?

    I had trialled the Resist SPF25 and found it too greasy, especially around my nose, so trialled this and didn't like this either. It's not moisturising enough but if I add in a serum, I become too oily in my T-zone. I wonder if the SPF is the problem because it certainly causes my eyes to puff up. Overall, I don't like this, it's one of the few PC products I actively dislike and I now only use PC skincare.

    Yes, I have emailed CS! These two trial sizes languish at the bottom of my PC products bag, where they belong.

    Ebikere - Terrible for my sensitive skin
    I never review products but this was so bad that I couldn't hold back.I'm acne prone and this product broke me out all over within hours of being applied,and worse by the next day.It totally set me back in my quest for clear skin,had to abandon my daily skin care regimen and fight the spots with an active benzoyl peroxide product.
    David - Simply the Best Moisturiser
    I love this moisturiser! Over the years I have tried many, many different moisturisers rarely buying the same product twice but this product is my holy grail. Very light in texture and leaves a pleasant silky sheen on my skin. Perfect and just placed my third order!
    Katrin - perfect
    Hands down the best high production face lotion I've tried so far (and I've tried too many to count, some of these ridiculously expensive). Its moisturising, although it doesn't leave the skin matte (which would be too much to want from SPF50 anyway), it sinks into skin quickly, leaves no white film, has very nice gently dewy moisturising effect on normal skin, yet makes a good make-up base. It is very liquid though, so beware when using the tube.
    LM71 - Superb!
    If you are looking for an SPF50 which is matifying, this is it. It is so light, non-greasy and goes on like a dream. Leaves skin feeling and looking powdery soft. It is a little too light for winter (but why would I need SPF50 in winter) but it is perfect for summer or a winter-sun holiday. Best SPF50 moisturizer I have ever tried (and I have tried a few!).
    Jenayhia - Good product!!
    I was introduced to Paula's choice by a youtuber that I follow. I was very skeptical about trying this product as I am dark skin and all of the face creams I have tried make me look blue or really greasy; this on the other hand doesn't make me look blue but I have to say for my skin type I wish it was a tad more mattifying. I would definitely repurchase and I would definitely recommend this product.
    Tim - The perfect SPF moisturiser
    The Rolls Royce of SPF moisturisers. Leaves no white sheen or oily film. Perfect for summer.
    T. - Excellent
    A really good SPF 50 for the face, doesn't clog pores. It does need to be combined with another moisturiser if you have dry skin or are peeling from acid treatments.
    Dawny - My first ever SPF moisturiser! Love it!
    I have very fair combination skin, which burns after about 10 minutes. I am very lucky that I don't look my age (so I'm told) which I put down to staying out of the sun. However, I have always tried to use a sun tan lotion, but on my face they just don't stay put. My skin is like, no way! And 5 minutes later I'm an oil slick. And who wants to wear makeup over oily sun tan lotion anyway??! I appreciate that the sun damages skin even on cloudy days, so I thought I would try Paula's SPF moisturisers. I bought several samples of the Combo skin ones, and I loved this one! Amazingly, it just goes on like moisturiser. It doesn't turn my face white, despite being a high SPF. I have NEVER found a moisturiser that my skin absorbed - ever! So to find this one, with SPF (so no need for sun tan lotion) was great. This is lightweight, absorbs well and doesn't break me out by clogging my pores. I LOVE it! I love that Paula does samples to try too. Sooo glad I did try it. Thanks Paula :)
    Lucy - Highest SPF version of Clear moisturiser
    This product is the 50 SPF version of the clear daily mattifying fluid. Both are incredibly light in texture, don't break me out, are satisfying to use and being Paula's choice, are reliably full of beneficial ingredients. I would use this one in summer and the clear 30 SPF version in winter.
    Heather - Loved it!!
    Loved this moisturiser.
    I bought a couple of samples as it's quite pricey for the full size and I wasn't sure if I was going to like it.
    It's lovely and lightweight, goes on smoothly and sinks in very nicely. Gives enough moisture but not at all greasy. Its not completely matte but isn't shiny either.
    Great under makeup and I personally had no problems with using it close to my eyes, didn't break me out either!!
    Will be purchasing the full size.
    I have oily skin and got on great with it and my makeup lasted a decent amount of time.
    I would recommend purchasing a few samples first so you don't waste your hard earned pennies.
    Paulo - Shiny and not good around eyes
    The product is very light, fluid and easy to apply also it does not dry the skin which is amazing.
    The problem is that it is very shinny not mat at all no wonder how little you apply and even if you have only this on the skin it is shiny. Also it stings if you apply in the eye area. Paula says that her products can be used around the eye area. I am yet to find any of her sun creams that you can apply around the eye area that is ok. I tried also the physical ones and the same happen when it comes to the eye area.

  • FAQ

    What is the main difference between Resist Anti-aging Youth-extending Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 and Resist Anti-Aging Super-light Wrinkle Defense SPF 30?

    Resist the Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 has a fantastic light texture that is ideal if you have oily skin prone to breakouts and blackheads. Resist Super-Light SPF 30 is formulated with a mineral sunscreen, which makes it more suitable for people with sensitive, oily skin. The mineral filter provides a slightly more mattifying effect than Resist Hydrating Fluid SPF 50. Resist Super-light SPF 30 has a touch of colour to help skin look more even-toned.

    Is there another Paula's Choice product which is similar to Resist Anti Aging Youth-Extending Fluid SPF 50?

    Our Resist Anti Aging Youth-Extending Fluid SPF 50 is identical to our Clear Ultra-Light Daily Mattifying Fluid SPF 30+, except for the SPF coverage.
