Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 contains a special blend of a lightly tinted, pure mineral zinc oxide sunscreen along with a diverse blend of antioxidants known to boost skin’s environmental defenses and prevent premature aging of skin, all with an exceptionally silky, light-matte feel.

All Paula’s Choice products are 100% fragrance free, clinically proven to be non-irritating, and never tested on animals.

Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 has a multi-purpose formula that protects skin from sun damage and fortifies it with state-of-the-art antioxidants. You’ll see a more even-looking skin tone from first use, and with daily use you’ll see that skin feels and looks firmer. Skin will also begin to look younger and more even toned. This unbelievably light and silky moisturizer leaves a soft matte finish that perfectly preps skin for makeup, no primer needed.

Use as the last step in your AM skincare routine. Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. If you don’t apply liberally, you will need to reapply every two hours after your skin is exposed to direct sunlight. If you plan to swim or perspire you must apply a water-resistant sunscreen.
