    Comments about EXTRA CARE Non-Greasy SPF 15 - 148 ml:

    I have trouble with sunscreens generally - for example, I can use some BB creams with sunscreen and not others. It is not the fragrances or other elements but what is used as sunscreen that seems to be the irritant. I have very fair skin and live in Australia where sunscreen is essential all year round, especially here because of the clear air and altitude, so I was hoping this one would be one I could use. Unfortunately it irritated my skin - made my skin sting after about 15 mins and I got a rash under my eyes. These symptoms took about 24 hours to go away.
    I need something everyday and for things like gardening. Sad this did not work for me.

      Comments about EXTRA CARE Non-Greasy SPF 15 - 148 ml:

      Australian ozone + extremely fair skin = sunny nightmares.
      It is brilliant to discover a reliable product that doesn't cost my pay packet. As a young student, and want to protect my skin from the sun with a fantastic product right now, not 'someday when I can afford it'.
      Paula's EXTRA CARE Sunscreen rubs in with a few strokes, sinks in to the skin within a minute and keeps my skin supple and protected. I love that I can wear it with or without moisturiser underneath, and that it is both a face and body sunscreen. I put on one application every morning, and reapply once if I hit the gym during the day.
      I swap this in daily routine with Mecca's To Save Face SPF 30 sunscreen and have never received a burn with either of these products. And they are both Cruelty Free products!

        Comments about Extra Care Non-Greasy SPF 15 - 148 ml:

        I live in Australia, so sun protection is a pretty big deal if you don't want to look like a prune by the time you are 35.

        I use this product daily on my neck, décolletage and arms (I use Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturiser SPF15 for my face). It isn't greasy, so it comfortable on your skin and it also doesn't have a strong scent, so you can wear it to the office smelling without smelling as if you're about to take a dip in the ocean.

        Everyone who uses it (I carry it in my handbag) comments that its a lovely sunscreen.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery is always excellent, however during summer it can sometimes go out of stock (sudden increased demand, I'm assuming).

        I usually buy two at a time so that I don't run out.

        Best everyday sunscreen in Sydney

        By Junichi Ocena

          • Daily Use

          Comments about Extra Care Non-Greasy SPF 15 - 148 ml:

          This is the best daily sunscreen because of its price and how it performs throughout the day/night.
          The price is getting to the expensive side but considering the anti-oxidants/beneficial additives this has, it is worth it. Plus there are no perfumes, drying alcohol -- any potential irritants [for me].

          It performs very well for day to day, the texture is a soft-matte finish, not drying. It feels silky after it dries and it makes applying my powder on top very easy. As an oily-skinned person, I have a soft matte finish at the beginning and at the end of my day, I appear slightly dewy- not oily.
          However, if you are a person who needs to use sunscreens on parts of your body other than the face/neck/arms, then this product is not for you. I would suggest buying a coles sunscreen or something similar-- which I used to use before this one. Per mL, that sunscreen is cheaper but leaves an oily feel and tends to clog my pores, but I use it only when going to the beach.

          For a normal work/school day or something similar, this is hands down the best sunscreen available in Sydney.

              I find this sunscreen exceptional for face and body. I have sensitive combination skin, prone to eczema and acne, yet this sunscreen works a treat. It's branded as SPF50 according to the FDA (yet only SPF 15 in Australasia due to regulation).
              I find this product more exceptional than all of the other Paula's Choice sunscreen products, most of which are more expensive per gram. This is the bees knees.

                I love that this has no fragrance, absorbs easily and once on, I don't even know I'm wearing it. It works really well under make-up too.
                I would love to buy this in a bigger size. Thanks Paula, yet again, for another great product.

                I absolutely love this sunscreen. It is so lightweight it just melts right into the skin and doesn't make me feel sticky at all. I put it on every morning without fail, something that I would never do with other sunscreens because I hated being all sticky and smelly! I won't buy another sunscreen ever again.

                This sunscreen is the best body sunscreen I've used, it's also really good to use on the face. It has such a light texture and the thin/liquid formula makes it really easy to spread all over the body. After a few minutes you can't feel it on your skin, but it's not drying either. It's fragrance free, doesn't irritate my skin and is reasonably priced for what you get.

                Comments about Extra Care Non-Greasy SPF 15 - 148 ml:

                I tried a few samples of this, then ordered a full-size. I'm surprised at how much I like this, as I have really dry skin! This is really nice! No fragrance, spreads so easily, isn't too greasy that I have to worry about it staining my clothes. Now that it is summer, I must apply sunblock to the exposed areas of my body before I go out. This works extremely well for me. I use a heavier sunblock for my face. I will definately repurchase this. Love that it's SPF #50

                I'm African with very oily acne prone skin with adult acne. I've tried loads of sunscreen since starting retin a, ahas, chemical peels for the acne and acne spots. The zinc sunscreens all give me a white cast and the chemical ones leave me oily even the 'oil free' types till I found this. I love this. It's very light, in fact runny, spreads easy, dries fast and I love that it's spf 50. My 4yr old and I both use it. This is my best non zinc sunscreen and will be re ordering.
