Dear Paula Begoun: I owe you an apology. While I once had hard feelings towards you regarding your thoughts on blue eyeshadow, but then I tried Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing Ultra-Sheer Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30. And wouldn’t you know I’m hooked? Apologies accepted?

Paula’s Choice is a line of skin care and beauty products developed by beauty writer and Cosmetics Cop Paula Begoun who’s best known for her books “Don’t Go To The Cosmetics Counter Without Me”. After years of experience investigating ingredients and really getting to know which products work, Paula developed her own brand. While I’ve heard of Paula’s Choice through the years, I’d never tried the products.

Needing a really good sunscreen, I decided to try out Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing Ultra-Sheer Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30. With a tendency to develop hyperpigmentation (aka, melasma), what my skin needs more than anything is a really great broad sunscreen to protect it from sun damage.

This particular sunscreen is extremely lightweight, and is formulated with antioxidants that help protect against free-radicals in the environment that contribute to further damage. This sunscreen leaves you with a matte finish, and it’s a great primer for foundation. Besides keeping my skin protected, it keeps oily skin at bay, and that’s a great thing!

My Final Thoughts: Although it’s a tad more expensive that I’d usually spend on sunscreen, I think Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing Ultra-Sheer Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is absolutely worth it. I’m impressed and will definitely keep this in my skin care rotation.

    I guess we’re technically a (new and emerging) competitor of Paula’s Choice at FutureDerm. That said, I’ll give credit where credit is due and say that I do like some of her products.

    This one I don’t care for because it contains all chemical sunscreens, and I prefer physical sunscreens, like zinc oxide or titanium oxide, which prevent UV light from hitting the skin altogether.

    Chemical sunscreens allow UV light to hit the skin and transform it into a non-harmful dissipative form of energy, such as non-UV light or heat, but I don’t find them as effective. I have the type of skin where I get sun spots very easily, so I religiously stick to physical sunscreens after I noticed I get more sunspots with chemical!

    I’m not good at wearing SPF in the winter. I need to try this out!

    So many of my friends have been telling me to try PC!

  • Anastasia

    I use SPF every day with some rare exceptions, and I always try to avoid Oxybenzone. As great as this sunscreen sounds, I would personally never use it, because I choose to trust EWG on this one. Sorry, Paula!

    I’ve read parts of that book, I didn’t know that Paula’s Choice was the author! Now I’m upset by her stance on blue eyeshadow, too. *pout*
