Excellent all-around sun protection!
**Paula's Choice Ultra Light Weightless Finish SPF 30 Sunscreen Spray** truly out-performed the commercial names in sun protection against Florida's potently dangerous summer rays on my mostly-Irish/Scottish-heritage skin, hands down. Over a test period of six weeks, several other products outright failed and I got sunburned WHILE USING HIGH-SPF SUNSCREENS!Using a range of products while boating, during the times when the sun's UV rays are at their strongest (12 noon to 4 p.m., and on the water, to boot), this Paula's Choice product was the only one that provided uniform long-term coverage and kept my skin from burning. **Paula's Choice Ultra Light Weightless Finish SPF 30 Sunscreen Spray** doesn't feel like a sunscreen in the typical sense, in that it isn't a lotion or gel, but a spray, so its clear and cool-feeling silky texture *is *relatively "weightless." One sprays it into the hand to apply to the facial area and it dries into a matte finish (although that doesn't last long when the temperatures are in the 90s!).As a pump-type spray that's also as light as those in aerosol cans (but without the drying and smelly alcohol), this product does leave a mild "sunscreen-y" smell--not the pleasant coconut kind but a more medicinal aroma (despite its "fragrance-free" designation; although it clearly doesn't have "fragrance," just the faint smell of ingredients).The only serious drawback was its tendency to sting the eyes. It didn't do so at first, nor when I was swimming, but only later in the day after reapplying for the 2nd or 3rd time, strangely enough. However, ALL the 30+SPF products stung my eyes at varying intervals...One other inconvenience is the product's tiny size; at only 4.1 ounces, if one uses copious amounts, it will only last a couple weeks. Yet, this product was the **only one** that kept my skin from burning. Period. None of the drugstore brands did that.All hail another successful, quality product from the Paula's Choice skin care line! :)
