Pricey but worth it

I’ve been searching for a combined SPF moisturiser for a while. I bought this on a bit of a whim and liked it but thought it was a bit pricey for something I need everyday. It was only when I stopped using it and tried a la Roche tinted mat cheaper alternative did I realise how much I loved the paulas choice.  It has a light sun cream feel that is super moisturising and not oily. It has a “glow” affect which I was sceptical of when I squeezed the product out of the tube because it looks like it’s going to be a clay mask but it does well it brighten skin and avoid a cakey white sheen on the face. I use in the day after The Ordinary AHA and I find my face feels fresh plump abs moisturised all day.  I will say, if you use and sweat straight away, you will see a bit of white cast. As I found out on a run. But no biggie, SPF is cool.

A good pregnancy-safe SPF but a bit pricey

It makes your skin look glowy and healthy and it's also very hydrating. I have a normal-dry skin type and I use it instead of a moisturizer in the morning. The only thing is that for such a high price, I would expect at least an SPF of 30. It leaves only a very subtle white cast on me (I am also quite fair though) that disappears after a couple of seconds.

Good, but not what I expected

I've been using this product for a month now, and it is not as invisible as I thought it would be. Still leaves a white cast and can feel quite sticky on your skin. It also tends to peel off and create some white bits around my eyes. It has a bit of a nice glow but doesn't last very long. Still, it is one step less to your routine, so I will keep using it as sunscreen, but probably wouldn't repurchase.

Paula’s Choice glow moisturiser

I was looking for a moisturiser with an SPF factor. This saved at least one step on what my skin needed. Very pleased with this. Non-greasy, very little smell and leaves a nice glow. Will buy it again.

It’s okay

This product does leave a lovely glow, but I find that it’s got a heavy white cast that can clump around in some areas, not worth the money.

Holy grail product

I’ve been using this for the last 3 years or so and I love it. It’s moisturising and gives a lovely glow. Once the product has been absorbed it doesn’t leave any ashy cast on my (Asian) skin. A winner all around.

It's good but not perfect

I've used this for a few months and on the whole it's good and feels nice on my skin. It has not caused any breakouts or negative effects. But it does feel a bit thick and sometimes leaves peely/excess bits of the cream - you have to rub it in a lot or brush away. I have to let it dry for a while before putting anything on top. And because it's got a bit of colour in it, I don't love topping up the SPF with it throughout the rest of the day because it feels like it's clogging my skin.

Perfect SPF

I’ve been using this every day for about a year now and won’t be without it. I mix in a small amount of Drunk Elephant D Bronzi serum for a really good no-makeup glow (note: I am pale!)
