This wasn't the best or worst sunscreen moisturizer I've tried from Paula's Choice. Where I live it gets quite dry and cold, and my skin tends to get a bit drier in the winter here. I thought I...

Seems as though I'm in the minority here compared to the reviews before me but I like this one. It's marketed for Dry/Very Dry skin and although I’m not as big of a fan of untinted mineral...

I generally am a fan of PC products however this sunscreen moisturiser is a fail for me. It comes out in a thick, white cream and has a mild cucumber scent. I really have to blend & work it into my...

I have allergies to chemical sunscreens so I'm limited on my choices. I feel that it performed well and didn't cause any reactions for me. I used it three times. It's also very hydrating. ...

I have been wearing this nearly every day for a month. My skin was reacting to a lot of things so I thought to wear this. It was hydrating and I could deal with the hydrating but slightly sticky...

I thought that this would be a good product. Boy was I wrong! I use the skin recovery mask, serum and moisturizer but this sunscreen really aggravated my skin. First I tried using it on my face....

This product (along with the AHA and BHA) were among my first purchases from Paula's Choice. So far, it's been a mixed bag. I've been using this product since mid-April and I'm not really all that...

My skin was a little dry so I thought I'd switch from my PC hydralight to the skin recovery spf instead but it was way, way too moisturizing for my face. I have combo skin and it made my skin super...

I avoid Paula's choice products, except for last step, because all the silicones partially cover the akin, reducing surface area for subsequent products. Annoyingly, even the toners have them. But,...

My review is for the new version or reformulation which is SPF 30, opposed to the old formulation which was SPF 15. I give this high marks for being SPF 30, since SPF 15 probably isn't enough. ...
