We love this product and could carry on about it quite a bit, but we'll try to keep it brief. This daytime moisturizer with sunscreen not only provides broad spectrum protection, it also feels great! That means you'll actually look forward to applying it every day, which is vital for truly fighting wrinkles and aging.

If you have normal to dry or even combination skin, we think you'll agree that RESIST Skin-Restoring Moisturizer SPF 50 accomplishes all that—and its robust mix anti-aging ingredients makes it an impressive example of a moisturizer with sunscreen done right.

Packaged in an opaque squeeze tube, the creamy yet light fragrance-free texture smooths over skin, blending easily to a soft, satin-like finish that works well under makeup.

About that robust mix of anti-aging ingredients: There are antioxidants, restoring ingredients, and skin tone improvers to ensure concerns like wrinkles, loss of firmness, and dullness are addressed. Even better: The antioxidants offer an invisible shield against the aging effects of pollution.

Add it all up, and RESIST Skin-Restoring Moisturizer has hit a home run for protecting and improving skin, enhancing its appearance and ensuring your skin is fortified against further signs of aging with each use.

Pros:
  • Provides broad spectrum protection.
  • Feels wonderfully moisturizing without being greasy.
  • Easy to blend.
  • Enriched with a very good mix of antioxidants and restoring ingredients.
  • Sets to a smooth finish with no white cast that works well under makeup.
  • Soothing agents ensure worry-free wear.
  • Fragrance free.
Cons:
  • None.

Brand Overview

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.

Paula’s 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 Beautypedia’s 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.
