As promised, here comes my product review for Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protector Extra Mild SPF30 PA+++.
This product comes in a gift set when I purchased Shiseido Perfect UV Protector SPF50+ PA+++. The usual price of a Shiseido Perfect UV Protector SPF50+ PA+++ is actually RM135 but you can get the mentioned product with a sample size of Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protector Extra Mild SPF30 PA+++ and Shiseido White Lucent Power Brightening Mask at the price of RM150 only! Well, I wanted the mask badly. So, that was the reason why I am willing to spend extra RM15 instead of paying RM135 for the sunscreen. The mask is good but pricey. It is currently retailing at about RM210 for 6 pieces.
According to the BA at Shiseido counter, this particular sunscreen is specially formulated to be extra mild. Hence, making it extremely suitable for children who stay outdoor most of the time. And since it’s specially formulated to be usable for kids, it is of course suitable for sensitive skin as well.
So, here’s my 2 cents on the product itself.
If you liked the texture of Shiseido Multi-Defense UV Protector SPF50 PA+++ or Shiseido Perfect UV Protector SPF50+ PA+++, you might not like this. The texture of this product is much more thicker and creamy instead of fluid compared to the above two products. It’s much more greasy in my opinion. I have quite an oily skin, hence I am not that keen with the texture of this product.
It doesn’t blend into my skin as well as Multi-Defense did. It takes a longer time for it to be fully absorbed into my skin and it doesn’t leave a smooth finishing like Multi-Defense did. It does not leave a white casting though. But with the thick texture that it has, washing off can a tad bit tricky after application. If you are thinking of washing it off with tap water only, it might leave a sticky feeling afterwards. So, I would usually wash my hands with liquid hand soap after application.
So, if you happened to be using this product, be sure to remember to properly cleanse your face by the end of the day before you go to bed with your usual makeup remover to avoid clogged pores. I don’t wear makeup but Bioderma Sebium H20 Solution Micellaire seems to be doing the job just fine in removing the mentioned sunscreen.
