Why did Paula’s Choice develop the CALM Barrier Protect Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 for all skin types?

As a part of creating a more targeted CALM collection for those with sensitive skin, we wanted to offer an improved and gentler SPF that is truly suitable for all skin types. The CALM Barrier Protect Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 has a silky, lightweight, sheer texture and includes soothing ingredients like allantoin, Centella asiatica and non-fragrant seed oils which were specifically chosen to protect those who experience sensitive or reactive skin. This product replaces both the CALM Redness Relief SPF 30 Mineral Moisturizer for normal/dry and oily/combination skin types due to its suitability for all skin types and impactful ingredient blend. 

Will the CALM Barrier Protect Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 leave a noticeable white cast on my skin?

The CALM Barrier Protect Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 has a silky, light cream texture with a sheer finish. As with most untinted mineral sunscreens, some skin tones may see a slight white cast. 

Why does the CALM collection have only one daytime moisturizer (with SPF) for all skin types but two nighttime moisturizers that are skin-type specific?

As a part of creating a more streamlined collection, we developed single solutions for the CALM cleanser, toner and daytime moisturizer. The CALM Barrier Protect Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 combines what customers loved about the original CALM sunscreens into a lightweight, non-greasy option that delivers silky hydration to all skin types. The nighttime moisturizers for normal to dry and oily/combination skin allow customers to further customize their CALM routine. Each can be used in the evening, or for daytime, can be layered under the CALM sunscreen for added hydration and soothing benefits.

What is the difference between the new CALM Barrier Protect Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 and CALM Redness Relief SPF 30 Mineral Moisturizer for Normal to Dry Skin and Normal to Oily Skin?

The original CALM Redness Relief mineral sunscreen for normal/dry skin featured a creamy lotion texture while the CALM Redness Relief sunscreen for oily/combination skin had a lightweight lotion texture. The new CALM Barrier Protect Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 has a silky, light cream texture with a sheer finish, suitable for all skin types. It also contains more advanced soothing and calming ingredients to keep sensitive or redness-prone skin protected and comfortable while strengthening the delicate barrier and helping promote a healthier microbiome. While many with normal to dry skin will find this product offers sufficient hydration, those with dry to very dry skin may prefer to layer a product such as our CALM Rescue & Repair Intensive Moisturizer underneath. Note: The CALM Redness Relief SPF 30 Mineral Moisturizer for Normal to Dry Skin, which is being discontinued, shares the same formula with the SKIN RECOVERY Daily Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30.

What is the difference between the CALM Barrier Protect Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 and the RESIST Super-Light Wrinkle Defense SPF 30?

While both options are great for broad-spectrum protection and skin-defending antioxidants, the CALM Barrier Protect Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 is our gentlest, most soothing mineral sunscreen ideal for those primarily concerned with comforting their complexion. The calming formula has a light cream texture with a sheer finish. It’s suitable for all skin types including ultra-sensitive and those with rosacea. The RESIST Super-Light Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 is a mineral sunscreen formulated to counter signs of premature aging while gently evening skin tone with a subtle tint. It’s ideal for those seeking a matte-finish mineral sunscreen with a robust blend of antioxidants that boost skin’s environmental defenses and promote a youthful appearance.

Is the CALM Barrier Protect Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 good for breakout-prone skin?

Mineral sunscreens can be a great option for most people with breakout-prone skin; however, we cannot guarantee this won't trigger breakouts since this is a highly individualized response dependent on several factors other than skin care products. The CALM Barrier Protect Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 contains three non-fragrant plant oils for barrier support and antioxidant protection, these oils are present in amounts that are unlikely to clog pores. You’ll find this SPF feels moisturizing, not slick or greasy.  As a mineral-based moisturizer with sunscreen, we can assure you this formula is non-sensitizing and won't worsen breakout-related redness.

Can I use the CALM Barrier Protect Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 around my eyes?

Yes. Mineral sunscreens such as the CALM Barrier Protect Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 are unlikely to irritate delicate skin, making them a great option for use around the eye area. Just be sure not to apply too close to the lash line to avoid the formula spreading into the eyes.
Is it really okay to apply makeup over my sunscreen? I want to be sure I get maximum protection.
Yes. While we typically recommend sunscreen as your last daytime skin care step, applying makeup over top is fine if you're following these simple steps: 1) Wait 3–5 minutes for the sunscreen to set before applying your foundation.  2) Apply the foundation in smooth, downward motions, no rubbing back and forth. 3) Do not use excess pressure or over-blend when applying makeup. 4) We also recommend opting for a foundation, BB cream or tinted moisturizer that contains sunscreen too. Layering sunscreens with the same SPF actives is a great way to ensure maximum protection.

Does the CALM Barrier Protect Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 have a noticeable scent?

While Paula's Choice products are fragrance-free, each product may have a unique scent due to its ingredients. The scent of the CALM Barrier Protect Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 that some may notice is from the combination of ingredients it contains. This scent dissipates quickly after application. The perception of smell can vary greatly between individuals, so what one person notices, another may not notice at all. Many customers find that they quickly get used to the unique scents of Paula's Choice products and that the benefits outweigh any potential drawbacks.
