I really like Paula's Choice products. I use quite a bit of them, and I have tried a lot of the day sunscreen moisturizers. I read rave reviews about this one, so I was eager to try it. The product...

I received a travel size of this with my last Paula's Choice order. I really wanted to like this mineral sunscreen. But after using it for a week, I just don't. For my oily skin, it's just not a...

Nice consistency, not cakey on my mature combo skin. I wear a mineral sunscreen every day of the year to avoid more sun damage. I purchased this to mix with an Elta tinted sunscreen that was too...

I've been using this sunscreen for about 6 weeks and I really like it. It has a lovely silky finish and I don't need foundation. My skin is fair so the tint matches nicely. It is not drying or...

This has a texture similar to a soft whipped cream which spreads easily on the skin. The tint is very light, just enough so that there is no white cast from the zinc oxide. Another benefit is...

I layer this over a chemical sunscreen to reap the benefits of zinc oxide. Non-tined mineral sunscreens always give me a terrible white cast and I decided to look for a tinted sunscreen that would...

Unfortunately this looks brown on my skin, also doesn't wear great. I had my husband ask me why my skin was brown and patchy, after a 10 hour shift. :( It does feel really nice on skin and was very...

It definitely helps keep my makeup through out the day. By having this underneath the make-up it wouldn't make my make up smudge and melt down. Then again, I have dry skin. For me I wish it would...

This is my HG sunscreen to date. I have very oily, extremely breakout prone skin and this doesn't exacerbate my acne/oiliness. The finish is very nice--matte but not drying--and the tint is nice...

Very nice to mix with other tinted sunscreens that may be too dark. It’s not for very dry skin on its own. So I mix it with other sunscreens. I love this one.

This is HG and I’ve been a fan for more than 5 years. I tried it first when my face became acne prone, and this was a product that doesn't cause further flare-up. It goes on wonderfully and made...

This SPF is great! I had been on the hunt for a good SPF for months, if not years. Previously I used the Tarte Tarteguard SPF, it was ok but it had a strong scent and made me too dewy. This one...

It was a bit of a journey for me with this one. The first time I tried it it dried my skin and oxidized my mineral powder foundation and turned my face orange. So if you use heavy-ish foundation...
