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!

I'm slowly converting all of my products to Paula's Choice, and my most recent switch was to this daily sunscreen. I LOVE IT. I can wear it all day without looking greasy, and the tint is just enough to even out my skin tone. I do have to wear a moisturizer under this, as my skin just feels too dry and tight without it. But, it is worth it for the extra step, because my skin looks great!

Wish this was more moisturizing

I hate using super emollient moisturizers before applying makeup, especially if I have about 3 more products to apply. Kinda wish this was more moisturizing and less mattifying, though the matte and fast-drying formula DOES help even out skin-tone a bit. So since this stuff feels a tad drying and I usually only use gel and liquid moisturizers I really have to prep and prime my skin first. Despite my little nit-picks I DO really love this product and it has been my favorite thus far in my hunt for the perfect spf/tint. Oh yeah, and the tint is very very sheer but blends easily and well with my fair-light neutral skin. Give it a shot! Not too pricey in comparison to others I've tried.

Works well!

I've been on the hunt for a new sunscreen since I recently switched from a lotion with SPF to one without. I've heard great things about Paula's Choice, so I figured now was a good time to try it out. I tested a sample of this sunscreen and it works well with my combo/oily skin. Although I have very pale skin, the tint didn't cause a problem. The sunscreen dried to a matte finish and didn't leave me any oilier than normal by the end of the day. I am definitely looking into buying the full size.
