What is it: Paula's Choice Skincare presents Resist Daily Mattifying Fluid SPF 50, a water-light moisturizer that protects from sun damage, helps prevent the signs of aging, and hydrates your skin.

Who is it for: Best for anyone with oily or combination skin concerned with preventing the signs of aging caused by the sun and seeking a daily sunscreen that feels super-light.

Why is it different: If you have oily skin and are concerned about preventing the signs of aging caused by the sun, Resist Daily Mattifying Fluid is the daytime moisturizer with sunscreen you'll love to use every day. It has a water-light, fluid texture that's unbelievably weightless yet provides high daily broad-spectrum sun protection that can help keep your skin young, smooth, and healthy looking. It goes on feather-light and sets to a non-greasy, soft finish. Ideal for use under makeup, so you can skip the foundation primer.

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.

From Paula's Choice Skincare.

Paula's Choice Resist Daily Mattifying FluidSPF 50 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Smell is a bit strong I like the fact that this SPF is matte and it has a very subtle SPF smell however it does have a smell that if you are scent sensitive (which I'm not), it may bother you. Throughout wearing I can smell that scent which causes my sinuses to hurt. It does come out of the bottle quite liquidly so be careful pouring out. I do however like that it plays well with my LG powder foundation since there's no SPF there so that's a plus however because of the strong smell, I won't be reordering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deserves 10 stars! I have very oily, acne prone skin that I have struggled with since I was a teenager (I'm 48). I've controlled the acne part by using Proactiv for about the last 20 years, but my skin still gets like an oil slick all thru out the day, so I constantly use the little oil blotter sheets and powder. I try to take good care of my skin but have never been able to wear sunscreen on my face (or anywhere else) on a regular, daily basis...until THIS. All other sunscreens make my face more oily and seem to even make my pores look larger, and turns my foundation an orange color (I'm very pale so it's a struggle to find a foundation that will match my skin to begin with). It's so frustrating! Paula if you read this review, I would LOVE it if you'd come up with a reasonably priced POWDER sunscreen that is absolutely CLEAR, NO COLOR AT ALL. I hate slippery, sticky, oily sunscreen on my arms, neck, etc... There are a few powder sunscreens out there but they all look like dirt on me! You have such great products that I know you'd come up with a fantastic solution! Anyway, this is great under my makeup (I actually prefer how my makeup looks with this and never want to be without it!). It makes my skin look so smooth and my pores all but disappear, and it doesn't change the color of my makeup! It's so thin and light weight that it doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything extra! I use it all over my face & neck - wish I could afford to use it all over my arms but I do add extra sunscreen there when I will be outdoors, just has to be cheaper (but not as good!). If you think this is a little sticky you may be using too much. I put my skincare products on clean skin and let it soak in while I dry my hair in the mornings and then go back and put my foundation, blush and set it with powder. It's amazing the difference in how my makeup looks. I have never EVER had a sunscreen that actually IMPROVED how my face or makeup looks. I use this every day, whenever I wear makeup, sometimes more than once a day, and a tube of this lasts me about 8 months, which is AWESOME. Yes it's expensive but for what it does, my skin is worth it and yours is too ladies. Nobody believes I'm 48 (almost 49), most think I'm late 20's or early 30's unless they have known me my whole life. I use several of the Paula's Choice products now and never want to be without them. Just this week I received the new serum foundation (ordered thru Paula's website) and can't wait to try it this weekend. If I like it, and I'm sure I will, I hope I can afford to keep using it as well. Thank you Paula for such wonderful skincare products and for making skincare for pale faces like me with oily skin! I have beautiful skin thanks to your products and also Proactiv. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this stuff I had ordered this a few weeks ago, and I love how fluid and light feeling it is. It does not leave my skin feeling greasy at all and I feel good knowing that I am using a high spf on my face. I use it as my last step in my skincare routine, I don't usually wear foundation but before any makeup I apply. I don't want to be without this so I ordered another one for backup. I also ordered the eye cream, waiting to get it. I am sure it will be good too.
