Sometimes we wish we could go back in time and warn our younger selves about roasting in the sun (or worse, spending time in a tanning bed). While we’re no Marty McFly, we can still work to repair skin from past discretions, as well as shield it from future sun damage. This lightweight moisturizer from Paula’s Choice does just that: It reduces the appearance of fine lines and discoloration, repairs and firms, and protects against harmful UVA/UVB rays. Your future self can expect a beautiful, youthful glow.
After reading mixed reviews on this sunscreen, I decided to take a chance and order it anyways. I've had nothing but good experiences with Paula's Choice products in the past, so I figured why not? I'm so glad that I did! This is the ONLY facial sunscreen that I can wear daily! I would def say it's for people with an OILY SKIN TYPE! I have pretty oily skin, and most SPFs make my face 100000x oilier, well not this one! It's super mattifying yet not at all drying for me! Also, the tint wasn't a problem for me at all. I'm fair skinned, and the tint kind of looks like my foundation tone, so maybe that's why. But I'll use it under makeup on my face, and also use it on my neck and it completely soaks in and no streaks or anything. Added bonus: very light scent, if any. So you're not left with that annoying sunscreen smell all day.
If you're on the fence about this sunscreen: if you're like me and have oily skin and most sunscreens make the oil slick worse, try this out! What have you got to lose?
10/10, love this product and love Paula's Choice!
I use this in the summer when its more humid out. My face tends to sweat easily and this leaves a nice matte finish without being over drying. There is another product similar to this that is for dry skin that I'm currently using since it is winter and my skin is much dryer. Love both products!5
Two disclaimers with this review: 1) I am pregnant and my entire body including my skin is "off" 2) I started using this product right when the weather changed from warm to cool. BUT.... this is the first even moisturizer that makes my face feel dryer! Seriously, after use I end up with dry patches on my face and I need to use another product to actually provide moisture. Also, the liquid is tinted which I did not expect. It doesn't seem to leave color on my face but this was a surprise upon first use. I bought this in an effort to use more grown-up products but ultimately I will return to my regular drugstore moisturizer which has not let me down.2
I'm so happy I purchased this moisturizer. It is nice and light, not greasy at all. I usually have trouble with tinted products oxidizing on my face, but this one did not. It has just enough coverage for a day that you don't want to wear full make up, but layers nicely underneath foundation. I will definitely purchase again!5
I wasn't aware that this is actually a tinted moisturizer when I purchased it. I see now that the tint is described on the bottle in the picture, but I didn't see it mentioned in the description on the birchbox site. Otherwise, this seems to be a fine moisturizer with sunscreen, which can be hard to find. It is not greasy, yet seems to be moisturizing enough for my dry skin.4
I have only been using this product for a week, but already see how my fine lines around the mouth have diminished. Also, I like that it is tinted, so I can skip on a BB cream or CC cream to go on top of it, when I don't feel like wearing too much makeup!4
I think I'm disappointed in this but I keep using it??? I can't describe this or how I feel about it. I think it's just that I had VERY high expectations for this product because I rely on the web site Paula's Choice for all of my beauty product reviews. So, I think I just imagined this to be better than it is.3
I love how smooth my foundation is on top of this. It evens out the redness and is one of 2 sunscreens I've found that does not cause breakouts - and I've tried tons over the years. Highly recommend this product. I just wish it came in more colors - then I could skip the foundation!5
This product is amazing! It is very light weight and has a very light tint to help cover flaws. I put this on before my BB cream. I'm out in the sun a lot and I can say I've yet to burn my face. I also have sensitive skin and this product has never made my face breakout. Love love love4
This moisturizer is amazing! This is the only moisturizer I have ever used that actually stays matte ALL day long. Seriously, I have used many "matte" or "sheer" sunscreens, moisturizers, you name it, and my face always develops that weird, slimy feeling about halfway through the day, especially in high humidity. This one just does not do that, and bonus: it doesn't clog pores and provides some light coverage. I have fair skin, and the tint is pretty light-- I'm not sure if this would work for ladies with darker and richer complexions or not. Paula's should definitely be offering this product in an array of skin tones, because it is fabulous. Note: I noticed that some other reviewers have claimed that this is not moisturizing enough for their skin; this is a part of Paula's Oily Skin/ Anti-aging line. I know it says it works for "normal" skin on the bottle, but proceed with caution-- this may be too dry for you.5
