Sun protection/Sunscreen is a MUST HAVE product for everyone, Im a huge fan of sunscreen. But I dont love the feeling after puting it.
Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream SPF 50+: A powerful and highly nourishing sunscreen for the face.This formula offers intensive complexion defense against UVA/UVB rays that cause sunburn, cell damage, dryness, roughness, and premature signs of aging such as fine lines. Don’t face the day without the ultimate creamy, youth-guarding shield that works invisibly to deliver an optimal combination of sun protection, hydration, and smoothness. The texture is non-sticky and fast absorbing.
My thoughts about this product : I used shiseido’s old sunscreen(55+) when I was in Bangladesh and when I used to go to university every morning (At 10am), then I switched it with a lighter sunscreen because this is the most thickest sunscreen I have ever used and I used to feel uncomfortable first 30/40 mins after applying it because of the humidity level in Bangladesh. but after coming here I had to change my lighter sunscreen and I went to buy the old one and came to know that they replaced that with this one.
I love physical sunscreen more than chemical one, this sunscreen has octinoxate 7.4%, octocrylene 3.0%, titanium dioxide 1.7%, zinc oxide 19.3% . I have used this almost a month and I found the formula is different than the old one, old one was mainly for oily skin but I loved that formula better on my (Im dry though) this formula is greasy and it does not absorb quickly. and it leave a shiny finish which is more like semi matte finish! other than it worked well on my skin, It did not clog my pores or I did not get any pimple or anything because of that.
Pros of this product :
* High SPF
* Physical sunscreen which is better than Chemical sucscreen.
* Does not clog pores
* It’s on the lower end of PA+++ .
* Not in drying side.
Cons of this product:
* Hard time to blend.
* Hard time to remove.
* It has Titanium Dioxide so it would’ve left a white cast.
This is not a bad product,It works okey on me however I wouldnot recommend this products products because of the thick consistency and new formula. I loved the old formula better than the new formula. And another thing I dislike that this sunscreen needs to remove them PROPERLY, I use my makeup removing oil sometime . you might have breakout if you dont remove this properly .
