Pricey but worth it

4

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

4

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

3

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

5

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

5

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

3

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

5

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!)
