The Paula's Choice RESIST Skin Restoring Moisturizer with SPF 50 is a good sunscreen for people with dry skin that hate sunscreens and how either very drying they can be, or how some sunscreens can leave your face looking super greasy. This moisturizer does a great job hydrating skin and protecting it from UVA and UVB rays. Since this is a chemical sunscreen this does not have any white cast but it does have a strong "sunscreen scent" that dissipates throughout the day. I do like that this has much more antioxidants and beneficial ingredients than the average sunscreen does. This is also fragrance free which is a bonus. I would say if you have oily or normal skin this is probably going to be too emollient for you, but those with dry skin will probably have better results. My video review can be seen here:

I wanted to hate this and I was all prepared to dislike this thinking sure I'll try this but I bet my rosacea will hate it. But I am a sucker for new sunscreens, mascaras, concealers, foundations always looking for the next better thing.

Well this product performs for me. It sinks in well, does not leave a sticky or crusty film afterwards, wears well, works well with my makeup choices, doesn't sting--I can even use around my eyes. It is expensive and I hate PC's new high prices but this WORKS! It's a chemical sunscreen so I'm surprised I can use on my sensitive rosacea skin but I have been using for several weeks with no problem. No cast, no smell except for a slight sunscreen smell and tube is 2 oz. It's supposed to be for normal dry skin and right now my skin is combination and it is working for me.
