Ratings & Reviews

Love this product!!


When I first squirted this product into my hand I was really surprised by how liquid-like it was. It's like white water! So I was sceptical but after applying it to my face and allowing it to absorb into my skin I really loved it! I have been using it for a couple of months now and can't see me wanting to change anytime soon. I really love how it absorbs into my skin and leaves my skin feeling really soft. I find my skin is really hydrated but I don't feel weighed down like I have with other moisturisers.

Smooth and Soft


I switched from the Skin Balancing SPF Moisturizer to this when my skin was getting dull and flakey (thanks to age). This does the trick with the flaky parts of my combination skin as it is a little thicker than the Skin Balancing SPF Moisturizer, and it creates a nice even skin tone without clogging your pores. And it dries so fast! The only downside to this is that it doesn't do great with my oily T-zone. But!!! Do no worry because Paula's Choice makes Shine Stopper which takes care of that pesky oil immediately. And even though I have to use another product to fight the oil, it is well worth it because this is so smooth and soft on my skin.

Best, lightest sun protection I've found


Just moisturizing enough, but not too heavy. Covers a large area of my face with just about 10 drops. Light and effective.

Great lightweight SPF moisturiser


I find this product to be a great lightweight, non comedogenic moisturiser. I live in Australia and it is essential to have a moisturiser with SPF in it and this is the first moisturiser that I have ever found that FEELS lightweight and doesn't cause pimples. I don't have a problem with it piling under my foundation (I use MAC Mineralise liquid foundation). I have used this product for over 12 months and it is perfect regardless of the season.

Holy Grail of Sunscreen


I've used this product for a few months and it has become my holy grail of sunscreens. I have a medium skin tone with an oily t-zone and combination skin everywhere else. Generally sunscreen makes me more oily and makes me break out. This sunscreen is different. It doesn't leave a white cast on my skin like most sunscreens do; it doesn't cause any breakouts; and it doesn't make my skin appear more oilier than normal. It's a definable win for me and i would repurchase again and again.


Alberta, Canada


Yes I will continue to purchase


So I have been switching between the Skin Balancing and Extra Care Non-Greasy SPF's for the past 3 years and I decided to give this one a try due to the ingredient list and fluid texture. I have to say that the applicator was a pleasent surprise and there is basically zero wastage and no dried up product in the cap. This probably as close to shine free as you will get for an SPF and I have only notice positive changes to my skin since commencing use. I would consider switching back to the Skin Balancing SPF if they changed the packaging to match this product. I will also continue to purchase the Extra Care Non-Greasy SPF as this is water resistant and great for beach days and holidays. I would also like to know when the SPF rating labelling will be updated to reflect the American products.

My new HG sunblock


This is the answer to my prayers. Seriously. I've used the Resist for Combination/Oily skin in the past, but I used the face wash and toner followed by different Paula's Choice products, and it worked, but not great. My skin looked good, but a bit irritated. After a little experimentation, I decided to come back to Paula's Choice and give this sunscreen a try, even though my skin has normally been adverse to chemical sunblocks at such a high level. I was attracted to the green tea and oat bran extracts, which I already know are soothing for my skin, and this product didn't disappoint. While some reviewers have knocked the watery consistency of this product, I consider it a major plus. It's the first sunscreen I've ever used that felt more like skincare than sunscreen. I was able to use the Anti-Oxidant Serum, the Clear Skin Hydrator, AND put this sunblock on top and have my skin come away feeling like... my skin, only better. Not greasy, not oily, not shiny. I can wipe the excess on the backs of my hands for protection and not even know it's there. I even put a mineral SPF 50 BB lotion afterward for a little extra makeup coverage (since I live in Hawaii) and it never got greasy. Paula's Choice is the first line of products I've ever used that truly, completely addresses the needs of oily skin instead of simply not exacerbating them. I had just come off of 12 hours of flying when I washed my face and tried these products for the first time and I came away looking fresh and glowing. The packaging is elegant and almost as Instagram-able as any of the other major brands, if you care about that stuff (I don't). It was like magic, or witchcraft. I'm floored. I just might be a permanent convert.

Favorite summer AM moisturizer!


I love using this during the summer. Yes, it does give off a bit of a sheen upon applying it, but it's not a problem for me. I have normal to dry skin.


Minneapolis, MN


Great for me


I've been using sunscreen forever because it is a requirement -- not an option. This one works well. I put it on and my face is ready for makeup. It leaves my skin nicely matte. I like that it has no color; sunscreens with color seem to leave me with too much yellow. Love this!




This stuff is crazy good


I got this last year and I shelved it thinking it wasn't working and thought I might of been allergic to it. (Turns out I was allergic to something different NOT this) So, since I knew I wasn't allergic I decided to give it another go. This stuff is amazing. I love the spf but my face is in a wonderful place when I use this. My skin is perfectly hydrated. Not too oily and not dry. It is wonderful!
