I use this constantly during the summer and go through several tubes. I like that it is one of the few sunscreens that has antioxidants in a stable packaging. It goes on and blends nicely without whiteness, but I find that it's avobenzene base still allows tanning. Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide work best for totally blocking the sun, but try to find some that don't make you look pasty! I use it on my face when I go to the beach, except my eyes, which it stings after getting splashed in the face by water (from sailing). Instead I'll use a zinc oxide or titanium oxide based sunscreen for eye area. The price is a little more than drug store sunscreens, but worth it for the antioxidants.

This is my favorite body sunscreen. I tried a bunch at the drugstore but most of them are greasy, sticky, have fragrance/alcohol or just felt uncomfortable on my skin. This sunscreen feels weightless and is definitely non-greasy. After it is applied, it just sets in matte and doesn't stick to your clothes. I don't even notice that I have sunscreen on. I just wish I didn't have to order online because it is expensive to Canada. I would recommend this sunscreen for body only. Not for face.Active Ingredients: Homosalate 10%, Oxybenzone 6%, Octisalate 5%, Avobenzone 3%, Octocrylene 2%.Other Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Butylene Glycol (hydration/texture-enhancing), PEG-8 (texture-enhancing), Polyethylene (texture-enhancing), Silica (absorbent), Dimethicone (hydration), Picea Excelsa Wood Extract (skin-soothing), Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (vitamin C/antioxidant), Retinyl Palmitate (vitamin A/ antioxidant/skin replenishing), Tocopherol (vitamin E/antioxidant), Tocopheryl Acetate (vitamin E/antioxidant), Titanium Dioxide (texture-enhancing), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (hydration/skin-soothing), Bentonite (absorbent), Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate (texture-enhancing), Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer (texture-enhancing), Sodium Polyacrylate (texture-enhancing), Kaolin (absorbent), Ethylhexylglycerin (preservative), Disodium EDTA (stabilizer), Sodium Hydroxide (pH adjuster), Phenoxyethanol (preservatives), Chlorphenesin (preservative).

I love this sunscreen so much'It's the only thing that does not not cause breakouts or aggravate existing blemishes!It sets off to a soft matte finish but it's not at all drying, very pleasant to use!It works very well under makeup and works just as well as a day time moisturiser!I think this is the best sunblock on the market, nothing comes close to this beauty!A must to try if your skin type is normal/oily and acne prone!Your skin will thank you.ps, this works so well at providing broad spectrum sun protecton, I'm from the UK so we don't get much sun, however lately we've been getting some very hot days, this works exceptionally well at preventing me from burning/tanning!

I HAD THE SAMPLEThis is an ordinary broad spectrum sunscreen. It will last a long time(depending on how long it takes for you to burn; very fair skin will burn quicker.) It does contain antioxidants and everything else 'Paula' recommends. EDIT : This sunscreen SPF factor was updated to a SPF 50 I believe.

I think the SPF product has changed several times. I think its now SPF50.Ugh! I'm a loyal PC fan but this s/s is NOT it! Whomever named this product "non greasy" needs to be fired. It is SO GREASY. I have dry skin. I almost never breakout but I think acne prone peeps would really have trouble with this s/s.I contacted customer service about wanting a higher SPF product b/c I spend a good deal of time outdoors. They recommended this product. It will not apply over my serum. I've tried letting it sink in more. It just balls up. I have never had a s/s (or any product) do this before. Such a pain to have to wash my face and start all over (not to mention wasted serum which is $$$).In fairness, this product is probably meant to be more of a body suncreen (it is large tube).Won't repurchase. Probably should have sent back. I will use on my face at pool this summer. I do prefer physical s/s which this product is.FYI: If you are looking for a hydrating, physical s/s, PC Skin Recovery is wonderful! It has SPF 30 (MUA may still have it listed as SPF 15 - it increased a year or two ago). For high SPF s/s, I've used Neutrogena "dry touch" or something like that with OK results. Its a chemical s/s and I can't use that every day w/o cheeks getting sensitive after a week or so. Also makes my eyes sensitive (contact lens wearer.

I really got into all the pc products a while back and i started using many at once. My skin cleared up from blemishes, and just looked a lot better, but while this was happening i noticed a problem that i never really had before, no blemishes but soooo many clogged pores and just little bumps on my cheeks. I didnt realize in time what what causing my problem until i started cutting everything out one by one. Well this sunscreen was it. As soon as i started using it my sking started looking better but i think it will still take a long time to completely heal.Also, it burned my undereye area, even though my skin is not at all sensitive. Overall im disappointed and i only use 1-2 products from her, that i just want to use up.

This is the only sunscreen that BURNS and stings like hell on my face after putting it on for maybe 15 minutes! I hate it.. I do not have sensitive skin and with any other sunscreen I do not have this problem. I first liked it because it is quite cheap and has antioxidants in it too but it feels greasy and shiny on my face and the packaging is really awful to handle. I usually like all the stuff from paula but this i do not recommend.

I bought this on sale for like 6 bucks a bottle. I'm looking for a holy Grail body sunscreen or lotion with spf I can wear easily all year round. I don't think this qualifies .It has stabilized ( thanks to the octocrylene) broad spectrum (avobenzone for UVA) protection . Spf 45 and a calculated PPD of about 9 . Pretty good for something from the US. It comes in a tube with a screw on top. I'm not happy about that I would prefer a flip top. Or press open top. It has some AOX in it but the feel is just ugh! It's chalky feeling and when I put this on it feels dry yet greasy on the top. Which is something I wanted to avoid . It's very whitening initially but goes away. Thank god I only use this on my body. I would never put this near my face. I'll use my euro ss for that. I'll finish up my four bottles as spring continues and summer comes but I will not repurchase . On paper this seems like the perfect ss. Stable, broad spectrum, antioxidants, but the base formulation for this ss is weak. Come on paula this Is 2012, not the old days with dry greasy ss. Great childhood memories, but yuck! It needs to be more moisturizing . Yet she insists on keeping her cheap silicones and drying agents . Oh well. It's a shame because it's a bargain too. 12$ for 5ozThe search for the perfect body spf continues !

I had bought a few samples of this sunscreen and then jumped on it when it was on sale for 40% off. It has been a very good buy! I'm pregnant right now so a good strong sunscreen was definitely in order to help avoid any skin colorations especially in AZ. I did notice that when i applied this over my daytime lotion i had quite an impressive sheen on my face but a little primer took care of that before putting on my face makeup for the day. I would definitely recommend it especially when it is on sale because you get a lot for your money.

This sunscreen sucks. It always feels greasy on my skin (like every other Paula's Choice sunscreen I've used) and makes me break out.UNT sunscreen (I use the Perfect tint) is a superior product.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
