    Maya - the best SPF ever
    By far the best spf I have ever used and iv tried ALOT. Very lightweight I can even re-apply without any issues throughout the day (on a make-up free day). It applies easy an doesn't drag at all, leaves a nice shine-free finish! works nicely under foundation, have been using for a couple years now.
    Lee - Good
    I wasn't expecting this to feel so suncreamy, it's also more hydrating than I thought and takes my skin a little while to go matte (which I quite like). I'm not a huge fan of the texture and do wish it felt like a normal moisturiser, however understand that is hard to get with an spf moisturiser. It doesn't break me out (it comes off nicely with a double cleanse using an oil cleanser and then the matching skin balancing cleanser) and has offered me good sun protection, however I do only reach for it when I am going to be outside and know I'll need an spf as I prefer the texture of other moisturisers I have. Still, a great option for an spa for acne prone skin and pairs up well with other products in this range.

    Customer Care: Hello, and thanks for your comments! We do advise daily use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum of SPF30 for everyone, whether indoors or outdoors, no matter what the weather is.
    CJ - Finally found it!
    This is the only day moisturizer that is non-shiny, not chalky and sinks in (given time). And with a decent SPF. (It also doesn't sting my eyes). I've searched long and hard for this product. Thank you Paula!
    Zee - Can’t do with out this!
    My skin has taken to Paul’s choice products so well! I have literally tried everything and this the only brand that works so well for my skin. After a year of red bumpy angry skin this product is light weight and smooths the skin. My face is brighter and softer. The spf is a massive plus point and I have had no more brown spots, blemishes are fading and my skin is finally clearer! I don’t know what I would do with out these products
