Paula's Choice Resist Cellular Defense Moisturizer is a gentle mineral sunscreen with SPF 25 to help protect your skin from sun damage. For normal to dry or very dry skin, the formula has a lightweight, silky-cream texture that hydrates and enhances radiance while providing mineral-based, broad-spectrum sun protection. It includes antioxidants formulated to work beautifully under makeup.

How do I use it: Apply liberally every day before sun exposure as the last step of your morning skin-care routine. Do not apply any other skin-care product over this sunscreen. Once absorbed, proceed with your normal makeup application.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Too Much of a Greasy Sunscreen Feel I've been using this a while prior to writing my review and I'm glad I did. Upon initial use I thought it was 5-star, but after 2 months of daily use, I've come to realize it just feels more like a sunscreen I normally wear for a day on the beach (and I live on the beach), than a hydrating moisturizer. It's too greasy feeling for my taste and towards the end of the day my skin feels dry, like it needs a good dose of hydration. I much prefer the non-sunscreen Resist moisturizer with Retinol over thIs one. I won't repurchase this, but I still love & will continue to use the rest of the Resist line. 10-25-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by Too Greasy! While this moisturizer offers good sun protection and keeps my skin hydrated, it leaves a sticky/greasy sensation on my face all day. The greasiness interferes with my makeup and I've now purchased different makeup types to try and see if any will perform better in conjunction with this product when in fact, it's not the makeup, it's this moisturizer that's the problem. My skin type is normal/combination with some sensitivity. 09-16-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love This Moisturizer & Packaging I have normal to dry skin and love this moisturizer. I mix it with a drop or two of Paula's Choice Hyaluronic Acid and it gives my skin a nice healthy glow, plus has an SPF of 25. It is a smooth, silky lightweight texture and works well under make up. It is not sticky or heavy, which I really love. I also love the packaging. you do not have to dip your fingers into a jar which is not sanitary, plus, it comprises the integrity of the ingredients when a jar is open and exposed to air. All of Paula's Choice products have the best packaging for the specific type of product. 07-11-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by Decent moisturizer This moisturizer is decent, but not earth shattering. It's a good price for a mediocre item, but don't expect major results. 04-15-16
