After reading about Paula’s Choice Ultra-Light Weightless Finish Sunscreen Spray in SPF 30 on the Tumblr blog Cheap as F, I decided to try it for myself to see whether or not it was really a good buy.
[dropcap4 bgColor=”#7EB936″]A[/dropcap4]ccording to the company website, the sunscreen “provides broad-spectrum sun protection, delivers antioxidants for wrinkle repair, [and] doesn’t cause breakouts.” It contains no fragrances or dyes, and it’s supposed to feel different than other sunscreens – not as greasy. The blog admin even gave her endorsement of it, saying that she loves the product, and you only need a little bit, so the price is worth it.
With this in mind, I decided to order the sunscreen. I used it during the weekend and today, and I can already say that yes, it doesn’t feel as greasy as other sunscreens would, even when applied between moisturizer and primer during my morning makeup routine. And so far, I haven’t noticed any breakouts like I would get with other sunscreens.
And the cool thing? The bottle has a spray applicator, so you have much more control over how much sunscreen you’re getting out of it. So a little goes a long way, if you’re just using it on your face. And really, if you think about it, the Paula’s Choice sunscreen, at just a little under $16.00 a bottle, costs a little more than the store brands like L’Oreal and Neutrogena, but it also contains the skin-repairing ingredients that you’d have to buy another product for if you were going with the other brands.
So I would definitely give this product four out of five unicorns. My only caveat? I wish the bottle was a little bigger for the price you’re paying.
