My favourite SPF moisturizer

5

Mineral based ✓ Minimum SPF 30 ✓ Hydrating moisturizer ✓ Basically everything I want. Does not have any tint and would probably give anyone besides the lightest skin tones a slightly white cast. I go through this pretty quick so wish it contained more but I really like it.

Great for highlighting areas

4

I don't like using this on my entire skin because it feels slightly greasy compared to other Paula's Choice moisturizers. However, I love using it under my eyes to create glow and to help hide dark circles under my skin.

Moisturizing

5

I’ve been using this for about a week. I have normal skin. This is easy to blend in, it does feel thick so it may not be good for oily skin.  No white cast is a plus.

Not bad

4

Like the way this goes on. No white residue. But it’s too “glowy” in my opinion. I know that’s the point of this, but found out it isn’t for me. I just look plain sweaty. Other than that it’s a perfect moisturizer/sunscreen. Does well under makeup as well

love

5

was on the hunt for the perfect AM moisturizer with SPF (because i’m too lazy to find two separate products lol) and after thorough research, decided on this one. been using it for a few weeks now and i love how dewy but not greasy it makes my skin, how high the SPF is, and how it’s made with zinc oxide

Smooth consistency

5

I'm really loving this SPF! For a mineral sunblock I'm very surprised by how smoothly it applies. White cast if any is very subtle compared to my previous mineral SPF from Is clinical. It's a lot more hydrating from my previous SPF as well. My favorite aspect of this SPF is that I've not noticed any pilling!

highly recommend

5

I've tried dozens of mineral spfs and this is the closest I've found to the perfect one. Most are either too tinted or leave too much of a white cast but this one leaves my skin looking pearlescent and radiant, but not in an overstated way. I have dry skin in the winter & oily skin in the summer and I can wear this throughout the year without issues. It's not greasy in my opinion and absorbs really well. I don't wear makeup so I can't say how it sits with foundation or other products, but I apply this a few minutes after my moisturizer in the morning and have never had any issues with pilling.

great daily spf!

5

i've been using this for 2+ years and it is definitely my holy grail spf. i don't wear makeup of any sort, plus i am very pale and fair, so this just gives me that healthy, dewy glow i need & a "barely-there" subtle natural look. the texture is almost whipped and has a nice mattifying feel, really easy to apply & sets in quickly. my only complaint is i wish it was a bit higher in SPF!

Greasy sunscreen

2

I received this sunscreen sample from an order with DermStore. I feel lucky to give it a try before I purchase it. The texture is very greasy. And it's hard to blend it evenly on your face.
