To my surprise, I’m really loving Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing Ultra-Sheer Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30. Click through for my review!

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.
