Brand Overview

Paula's Choice RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 is light as water and dries clear on skin. This is an excellent option for those who are seeking a super fluid sunscreen that isn't alcohol based. As it is free of any oils, it is particularly ideal for those with oily to combination skin. However, if you have dry skin, you may also enjoy this due to the fact it is light enough to be layered over a non-SPF moisturizer.

Packaged in a squeeze tube with a needle spout (handy due to its super-fluid texture), this sunscreen provides broad-spectrum protection via a non-mineral formula. Its powerful array of soothing agents defends against sensitivity or burning around the eye area. Beyond its soothing agents, it does include a beneficial array of antioxidants to boost its environmental defense protection, green tea and vitamin E among them.

Though this doesn't make you oilier throughout the day, this won't prevent your normally oily spots from peeking through. However, RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 has more than enough qualities to love—not the least of which is an impressively high SPF that manages to feel (almost) like nothing at all on skin, yet doesn't rely on that "old ball and chain" denatured alcohol to accomplish its water-like texture. For those who've been searching for a super light sunscreen that doesn't sensitize, this is an exceptional one to consider.

Pros:
  • Provides broad-spectrum sun protection.
  • Impressive, water-like texture that's perfect for oily to combination skin.
  • Contains a mix of antioxidants and soothing agents.
  • Fragrance free.
Cons:
  • None.
Jar Packaging: No
Tested on animals: No

If you have oily skin and are concerned about defending against the signs of aging, RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 is the daytime moisturizer with sunscreen you will love to use every day. Specially formulated with advanced dispersion technology, this first-of-its-kind lotion has a water-light, fluid texture thats unbelievably weightless yet provides high daily broad-spectrum sun protection that keeps your skin younger and healthier-looking. A blend of soothing, plant-based antioxidants defends against environmental damage. Ideal for use under makeup (so you can skip the foundation primer) and gentle enough for use around the eyes.

Paula's Choice Skincare At-A-Glance

 

Paula's Choice Skincare was established in 1995 when best-selling beauty author and consumer advocate Paula Begoun (known as The Cosmetics Cop) decided to develop her own products.

As a natural evolution of Paula's personal mission to help consumers find the best products for their skin, the line has grown into an extensive range of skincare and makeup products that are formulated to meet the needs of almost every skin type and skin concern imaginable, from acne to wrinkles.

Paulas Choice Skincare relies on published research where available to discover the best ingredients for skin. Stable packaging is another feature of the brand, using innovative, opaque, and air-tight or air-restrictive components that keep antioxidants and other light- and air-sensitive ingredients from breaking down. The line is also 100% fragrance-free.

Disclosure: Paula Begoun is the creator of Beautypedia and founder of Paula's Choice Skincare products. Reviewing thousands of skincare and makeup products over the past 30 years, both on this site and in her best-selling books, Paula's mission has always been to help consumers find the best products possible for their skin. The Beautypedia Team proudly and unequivocally maintains this commitment. In addition, The Beautypedia Team reviews all products using the same rating standards and criteria, whether it is a Paula's Choice product or another brand.

Why are Paula's Choice Skincare products rated highly? The Paula's Choice Skincare Team would not launch a product unless it was worthy of a high rating from The Beautypedia Team. Paula and The Beautypedia Team were researching and reviewing products long before Paula's Choice Skincare ever existed and consumers were constantly requesting a skincare brand that met all of Beautypedias criteria. As a result, The Paula's Choice Skincare Team was created and uses the same research and criteria to formulate Paula's Choice products as The Beautypedia Team uses to review products.
