Additional Information

Why is it different?

Collapse
What does it do?
An age-fighting formula 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 moisturiser perfectly preps skin for makeup.
Collapse
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.

Finally an SPF for me!

    • Daily Use

    This is the best SPF I've found for my combo/oily 41 yr old skin! I've spent a fortune trying to find an SPF that didn't leave me wanting to wash my face straight after application. Love that it's SPF 30 too! My only complaint is not having this available in a darker tint... I have a medium complexion, but this leaves me very ashy and ill looking if I don't wear makeup over the top. It'd be great to have a darker tint for those makeup free days!

        This product has been extremely hyped over the internet, and I was excited to try! I have combination skin that isn't overly sensitive. At first I liked how the tint made my skin look as I like a light coverage for everyday were, but after one use (sadly) my skin became very very dry and sensitive especially around my eyes. Do not recommend for dry or sensitive skin!

          Does not meet expectations

          Pros

          • Lightweight

          Cons

          • Feels drying
          • Not Effective
          • Tint is too light for tan-deep skin

          Best Uses

          • Daily Use
          • Uneven Skin Tone

          I have combination skin but I think this moisturizer is more suited for oily skin as the parts of my face that are normal felt very dry and not smooth at all. Overall, it did not feel moisutrising at all. I also have quite tan skin and the tint is too light despite its appearance. In some lights, I could see a distinct line between my neck and the moisturiser.

          Broke me out...

            I was so excited about using this after reading all the reviews, especially as the SPF was exactly what i was looking for. Unfortunately, this product first dried out my skin (which is unusual as i have oily acne prone skin) and also blocked my pores :( after giving it a go multiple times i found that there was really no way to use this without breaking out!

            The tint in this product stains clothing

              • Daily Use

              I was a long time user of the Resist Day time moisturiser - I can't recall its correct name, but the one in the dark blue tube. It was unfortunately discontinued. Whilst the Resist super light moisturiser is fine to use, I dislike that it is tinted. The tinting is constantly rubbing off on the collars of my clothing and bra and it almost impossible to get out in the wash. I think this moisturiser would be perfect if it was just plain white, not tinted.

              Is this broad spectrum?

                I like this product a lot, but just realized that the description on the website does NOT say that it is broad-spectrum. Instead it is described as a moisturiser with "mineral-based SPF protection." Is this product broad-spectrum? If it is, it would be helpful to have that clearly stated on the website description. Thanks!

                Comments about RESIST Super-Light Daily Defense SPF 30 - 60 ml:

                I have all the PC mineral sunblocks (resist cellular/redness relief/hydralight) and i am on the second bottle of wrinkle defence spf 30.. I have normal-sensitive skin and cannot use chemical sunscreens like avobenzone or octisalate etc... This dries the skin and color is quite horrible but ok as tinted daily sunblock with antioxidants. However, i can not use just this because the spf is that high enough... Most of the Australian spf 30 sunblocks have 20% Zinc Oxide (220mg/g). I am not sure if 13% zinc oxide can be fully spf 30 in aus... I had to combine this with other sunblock because during the last summer it could not protect my skin from getting the brown spots and freckles. Overall, This is ok and the finishing texture is far better than other current Paula's choice's mineral sunblocks.. but i think Barely There Tinted Moisturizer was so much better for me which is now discontinued .... Dear Paula, now you have discontinues the cellular defence spf 30.... Please please please bring "mineral tinted moisturizer" for "dry to normal skin" people in the future.....

                    Everyday this is an essential either on it's own for weekend or just going to the gym and on work days provides a great base for foundation. Great texture for high humidity northern Australia plus actual sun protection.

                    Great speedy delivery. Never had a problem.
