Ratings & Reviews

Favorite Sunscreen for the whole family

5

I have sensitive skin, especially on my face. I typically get a tingling, tight or burning sensations with many sunscreens I've tried. But this one does not cause any skin reaction. Just soft, moisturized skin even on my face! Same for my son's eczema. He's has very pale skin that burns easily and this sunscreen works well to protect him without causing an eczema flare up. My husband works outdoors and really loves it too. I just wish I could order some more. It's been out of stock for a little while.

Love this

I like to slather this on myself, my husband, and my soon to be 10 months old(once I run out of these gifts: (really small-will leave him chalky-Neutrogena Pure & Free Baby Sunscreen, SPF 50, and (thick and dry glob-Acure Baby'S Day Out Kit - 3 - 3 Ct). I can see myself using this on my puggle(Pug+Beagle). It is not that pricey(if you reapply and compare it to the other sizes) but it is smallish I wish it would be in an 8 ounce tube with the same price so I would not have to order it often. We live in Texas so it is sunscreen all year long. I used many brands and sprays and lotions such as: Neutrogena, NO-AD, Burt's Bees, Coppertone, Hawaiian Tropic(has the best fragrance added?), Bullfrog, they are either too thick, leaving a feeling of I-have-been-shrinked-wrapped, or not as good and light as Paula's Choice. Once I rub this sunscreen lotion on my sensitive skin I can feel the difference. I like it that it is not overly perfumed like all the other brands. If I want to wear a fragrance this sunscreen will not compete.

Like being outside but not burning

My husband and teens LOVE this sunscreen!!

5

I tried this as a body sunscreen and I wasn't wowed (I like greasy body sunscreen that has scent). It worked (I didn't get burned) but I shelved it. Then my husband who has just recently decided that I was right & didn't want to get skin cancer or wrinkles had become obsessed with this. Then my sons went to camp and this is the only sunscreen they like to use - it spreads easily, they can apply to their face & doesn't smell. Super bummed because my kid lost his day backpack with sunscreen & now PC is out of stock!

This is my daily sunscreen so go through a lot! I like how it moisturizers as well as protects. It's a large tube and not expensive! I usually buy 3 at a time!

Excellent Sunscreen, Too Expensive

5

This is the best sunscreen I have ever used. It is very light-weight and non-greasy. It is not thick and pasty at all and will not make you look like a snowman after applying it. I have very oily, acne prone skin, and this sunscreen was great. It is long lasting and very effective at preventing sunburns. I also noticed that it really holds up after getting in and out of the water. My husband and 7 year old daughter also love this screen and doesn't irritate their skin as well. I just wish it was less expensive because we really go through it.

This is the best sunscreen for the high SPF it offers

5

I have Vitaligo (pigment loss) and have used many high SPF sunscreens. This by far is my favorite for protection. It is light weight and doesn't leave a zinc oxide residue.

Daily Use Optimal!

5

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.

BEST SUNSCREEN!

5

My husband and I are both fair-skinned and burn vey easily. I have been using other Paula's Choice products for my adult acne and since my skin has never been better, we decided to give this a try for our recent trip to Mexico. The sunscreen applies well, and does a fantastic job. It has GREAT staying power and kept our pasty selves from turning lobster red! I noticed a small stinging around the under eyes when I applied it but it subsided very quickly. This also left my skin feeling a lot better than other blocks, which tend to clog my sensitive skin up and make me breakout. Now I get the best of both worlds: no burns and no breakouts! Thank you PC!

My go to running sunblock

5

I am very fair skinned and spend a lot of time in the sun between running and biking and now rowing. I need something that doesn't feel like a disgusting slimy layer but is also effective. This product seems to be just that for me. It doesn't make me feel greasy and washes off completely. (My old standby sunblock leaves a weird residue after soap and water.) I can't use this on my face because I'm allergic to some of the ingredients on my face, but for body it's great. My only complaint is that I wish it came in a smaller "travel" size. Something small enough to fit in a jersey pocket or in my hydration vest would be perfect. Some people, myself included, spend many many hours outside and it would be nice to be able to reapply.

Best everyday sunscreen in Sydney

5

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.
