Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

After cleansing and moisturizing, apply liberally to face, eye area, and neck at least 15 minutes before sun exposure. Make sure to reapply product at least every two hours if skin is exposed to sun. The lotion’s sheer tint allows makeup to go on smoothly, so feel free to skip your primer.

Works like a charm!

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!

Best moisturizer with sunscreen

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!

Not as good as other PC products

I've been a faithful Paula's Choice skincare customer for several years. I bought this last summer in preparation for the hot and humid weather, therefore more oily skin. I was quite disappointed with this sunscreen - my skin felt tight and very dry after application. I tried applying over a moisturizer but I still didn't like the feeling of dry, taut skin. Thank goodness for the money back guarantee that Paula's Choice offers. No matter what your skin type, other than very dry, I highly recommend Paula's Choice liquid sunscreen for oily/combination skin (in the white tube with aqua blue/green writing) I think it's called "Hydralight." That stuff is wonderful!!

Best light moisturizer

This is the best moisturizer! It's light but still moisturizing, no greasy feeling at all. It protects from the sun. What more can you ask for ?

I can wear this daily and I have pretty oily skin and this did not make my skin oily at all. I love the tint , I'm fair skinned, and the tint matched my skin tone very well under my makeup. Andddd I loved the smell!!!
