Review: Paula's Choice Resist Super-Light Wrinkle Defense SPF30

Assalamualaikum and hello muh pretty peeps!

Oh my god. I know, I haven't update this blog for over a week. I mean, that's totally so not me! I'm so sorry I just have been super busy with personal stuff and there was a lot of stuff happening. It's just not a good time because I just can't seem to write stuff while handling some stuff... Ahhh it's too much. I'm sure you guys don't even wanna know about those stuff. Hahaha.

Anyways, I decided to post this Paula's Choice Resist Super-Light Wrinkle Defense SPF30 review first (I did a poll on twitter on what mascara I should review next) but I need to try the mascara a bit more lagi. Hehehe. Okay let's stop membebel and start this review. Ok.


This gentle, mineral-based moisturizer with sunscreen protects from sun damage & fortifies skin with potent antioxidants to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
> Anti-Aging, Enlarged Pores, Wrinkles
> Normal to Oily Skin; Combination Skin
> Zinc oxide provides broad-spectrum sun protection
> Sheer tint works beautifully for all skin tones
> Silky lotion texture leaves a soft matte finish, perfectly prepped for makeup

What makes this product unique?
Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 is a daytime moisturizer with sunscreen designed for combination to oily skin with signs of aging. Its multi-purpose formula not only protects skin from sun damage, but also fortifies it with potent antioxidants. You will see a more even-looking skin tone, fewer visible lines and wrinkles, and the return of a younger, healthier-looking glow.

This gentle, mineral-based formula has a sheer tint that works beautifully for all skin tones, whether worn alone or under foundation. An amazingly silky lotion texture leaves a soft matte finish that perfectly preps skin, allowing makeup to apply smoothly and evenly (no primer needed).

Pure, refined zinc oxide provides remarkable broad-spectrum protection without making skin more oily. It is perfect for sensitive skin and great for use around the eye area. Daily sun protection is crucial for preventing wrinkles and brown spots, while still allowing skin to look fresh, even, and healthy.

This product is 100% fragrance-free.

So as you all know, I have a bit pigmentation issues caused by our beloved star, The Sun. I rarely put on sunblocks/sunscreens because I never like the consistency and after so much research (wahh gitu padahal surf internet je), I decided to buy this Paula's Choice Resist Super-Light Wrinkle Defense SPF30.

I read few reviews online and most oily combination skin peeps loooove this sunblock. Well actually the product description is a lightly tinted mineral-based anti-aging moisturizer with SPF protection. Haaa kau. It's like everything is this product. It's a tinted moisturizer with SPF basically. LOL.

This product gets a 4.3 out of 5 rating on Makeup Alley. I know it's not super reliable but 4.3/5 from 100++ reviewers? That's pretty darn good.

I was lucky I got discounts when I bought it. It was only around RM120. Yep. I'm not kidding. That is why I decided to try it. You guys know kan I do not spend a fortune on skincare products because I'm afraid it won't suitable for my skintype ya know? If you're cheap like me and wanna try some stuff, please please go to . This is not a paid review, I really love their CS, their service is fricking awesome. Plus, they always have special offer every month so go ahead check em out!

To be completely honest when I first use this moisturizer/SPF, I did not like it at all. Let me tell ya something. Paula's Choice brand in Malaysia is not affordable at all. So I was like, so much ragrets ya know. But since it's pricey AF, I keep on using it until I figured out how to really apply it.

The application is of course as usual, but you just cannot use it too much. Can say that a little goes a long way. Texture wise, it is quite thick and slightly tinted but I'm not sure if it's medium to deep skintone friendly because it is quite pink. Even if I put it on my skin, I look paler. LOL.

The product is a bit uhmmm it's not sticky but you can feel it on your skin and on your fingers (if you applied it with fingers of course). It feels a bit powdery ? I don't know how to describe it but it's not like soft powdery, it's like powdery but sticky but it's not super sticky? I don't know man.

I wore this through out the day and usually I go pray after 2pm and I do look oily. But it's not like grease ball, still look okay lah. LOL. But I notice the oil was like coming thru my pores. I can see dots of oil on my nose. It's so weird. LOL

Has a slight pink in it

Since it is tinted, it has a pretty good coverage. Well, it is a VERY light coverage tinted moisturizer but it evens out my skintone pretty well. I can live and go outside with just using this product. I tried using this under makeup, can't say if it actually good or not because foundations that I use with it tends to get patchy when I blot my face. So if I wanna go bare face, I would use this only with Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation. I just dot the foundation onto my face, just a bit and blend it with my fingers. I know some people said you can't blend stuff with you fingers onto your sunblock but I just don't care aiusdjaskldjasld YEA I KNOW OKAY SUN, I KNOW

I haven't try mixing it with foundations but since it's technically a sunblock, I don't think you can do that. Afraid the ingredients might change? Correct me if I'm wrong.

The product claims that it has anti-aging properties and all of the good stuff, I can't really say it's true or not but I notice my skin didn't react badly and everytime I use this moisturizer/sunblock, I would have good skin week. I'm not shitting you guys. I rarely get breakouts while using it.

Like I said, I don't use sunblocks that much because they are soooo oily on my skin, eg Nutox Solar Block SPF45. Yeah, higher SPF would be a better sunblock but it is just super oily and I hate the sticky sunblock feeling. I cannot remember from which article, it mentioned that it's better if you use an SPF with moisturizing benefits, not moisturizer with SPF. Usually moisturizer with SPF has low SPF, lesser than SPF20. And sunblocks aren't that moisturizing, like the Nutox Solar Block, it just felt so not awesome on my skin but this Paula's Choice one, even though it is for oily combination skin, it still moisturizes my skin so maybe that's why my face didn't look like a grease ball at the end of the day.

Great ingredients
Has natural light coverage
Semi-matte finish
Perfect for oily combination skin

Pricey AF
Not a universal tint, may not look good on some skintones

Final thoughts: Putting the price tag aside, I really enjoy using this product. I know they don't have physical stores here and you can't really feel the texture and stuff but if you are willing to spend a bit, I would recommend it only if you can't find a good sunblock or you find sunblocks heavy and oily on the skin. The Paula's Choice RESIST range has sunblock for dry skin as well so you might wanna check em out. Plus, Paula's Choice skincare has great ingredients and they're not tested on animals, free from harsh chemicals... So yeah. If you're into that, go check em out.

Would I repurchase? Maybe. See how long can it last... I've been using it on and off for the past 2 months... I'd say it's possible for me to repurchase it if it can lasts me more than 2 months.

Rating: ★★★★☆

So yeah. I guess that is all for tonight.

I hope you guys find this helpful in any way.

Thank you for reading.

Stay gorgeous. <3
