Ratings & Reviews

Great sunscreen/foundation!


I love this sunscreen for the SPF 30 but I also love the tint- perfect for my very fair complexion. (Notice some of us commenters who are very fair- skinned have mentioned the perfect tint- slightly pink). I like this better than foundation for my very fair skin. Only when I go to special events do I use foundation. Otherwise on a daily basis, this wonderful sunscreen is also my foundation. That is an especially great combo in our hot and humid southern summers in South Carolina. Even though it is now January as I write this, I just re-ordered and plan on using it as my sunscreen/foundation even in the cold months.

This may be my favorite PC product of all time! I rarely use a regular foundation anymore, as this does what I need. I have combination skin, so I do use another light moisturizer underneath. My skin stays smooth and moisturized all day. Please never stop selling this!

The best I've ever found (acne prone, oily skin)


As an acne-prone red-head who spends a great deal of time outdoors and in the tropics, I have definitely tried some sunscreen in my day. I can't say this is the perfect sunscreen, but I can say it's the closest I've found. I am just returning to it after trying out a "dermatologist approved " store brand which broke me out in a week :)! I've never had a problem with this sunscreen and it does mattify enough (which is a task) without being drying.

Great for Oily skin


I love how light weight this moisturizer is. I have never been able to find a product that contains SPF 30 and doesn't leave me feeling greasy. The tint blends in well and doesn't leave a white sheen. I will definitely keep this on my auto-ship!

The Best!


I have been using this moisturizing sunscreen for years. I've tried many others suggested by You Tube Influencers, from time to time, but always return to this.






My absolute favourite sunscreen, I have used up 3 tubes and needing to purchase a 4th. I have really oily skin and this controls my oil, doesn't break me out, mineral based, it's just amazing! I've got my mum on to using this and she loves it as well. Such a great product, it'll always be in my skincare routine for as long as they make it. :-)

Love it!!!


With over 1,000 reviews and an outstanding ingredients list, I knew I had found something special. From the first time I used this, I was so pleasantly surprised! With 'mattifying' being on the label, I expected a thick formula that I would have to blend in quickly.. but this was not that! It is a really smooth textured silky cream that blends in beautifully with no pilling whatsoever! I use it all over my face and neck and even my whole eye area with zero irritation or stinging. It feels very moisturising and once it dries, it turns matte but does not look drying on the skin! I have never EVER come across a formula like this.. It's absolutely genius! Paula's choice definitely got it right and did what many other companies have failed to do, which is deliver a moisturising spf that does not make you look shiny or dry and flaky.. You're just somewhere comfortably in between! Plus the fact that it has all these beneficial antioxidants and anti-aging ingredients is just an even bigger reason to love it! It also works really well under make up and does not break me out. I have also noticed that my skin is softer and more even since first using this 1 week ago! Overall I'm extremely impressed and happy that I decided to purchase this and will continue to purchase as I can't live without this now! I definitely recommend giving this a try and hope it works well for you too :) A million thank you's to Paula's choice for this amazinggg product! P.s, please never stop making this! Xx




Fantastic for combo/oily


This is one of the nicest mineral sunscreen products I've ever used- definitely the most enjoyable to use. It's truly mattifying - even for my oily/combo skin, and blends perfectly with my skin tone. I was a bit worried that the tint would be visible because I have very pale skin, but it did not at all, and in fact really evens out my tone (I'm pale but with redness in the cheeks). I recommend, if you have oily or combo skin, to wait to apply this at least 10 minutes or so after any other AM serums/lotions if you want it to me really mattify your skin. It blends nicely regardless, but I find that when I apply it to truly dry skin it mattifies best, so I'll apply my AM serums right when I wake up, and this right before I leave the house.
