My flu and cough are almost recovering though I get occasional sinuses on the nose and mucus on my throat. I am taking a day off on this Saturday to do a little bit of window shopping alone. Jia is currently on lots of food ban since she has this allergy whereby the doctor advised her to stay out of majority food and she can only consume vegetables and pork.
We actually planned to have a meal together at Depot V.LO Cafe on last Tuesday but she took a rain check because she had a family obligation that she had to attend. And furthermore, she wouldn’t be able to meet up with me on this coming Saturday because Stephen may be getting the day off from work so she as the girlfriend would definitely opted for accompanying the boyfriend rather than the friend me. LOL! Kaylie would be working till 5:30p.m. in the afternoon so I doubt we would have the time to meet up since I should be at home by then already.
Anyways, we shall see how it goes by then. So tempted to try Auntie Anne’s but I heard the queue was horrendous. One of Jia’s friend queued for approximately 90 minutes just for their pretzels and a customer is only allowed 6 pretzels. I might as well wait till the queue die down before joining the crowd.
You’ll probably have realized that I had finished my previous Shiseido Multi-Defense UV Protector SPF50 PA+++ as blogged on my October Empties the other day. So, here I am now with a review of a new sunscreen which I picked up from Shiseido counter couple of months back from Parkson, Miri.
A lot of people had been wondering the differences between Shiseido Perfect UV Protector and Shiseido Multi-Defense Protector. Honestly speaking, I couldn’t really identify the differences apart from the texture and scent. LOL! One of the major difference between both of these sunscreen is that the former is housed in a bottle which carries 20ml more than the latter with only RM5 difference in price.
The texture of Perfect UV Protector is a lot runnier than Multi-Defense Protector actually and it comes with a light shade of pink (you wouldn’t find yourself to be pink faced after application though). I personally find the texture of the former to be rather similar with Kose Sekkisei Sun Protector N SPF50+ PA+++. In terms of scent, the former is not heavily scented either as compared to the latter. Albeit the former has a lighter texture and milder scent, I prefer the latter more.
First of all, Perfect UV Protector leaved my skin looking slightly greasy after application although you couldn’t feel the slightest grease when you tried touching the area of application. Secondly, it doesn’t leave a very smooth finishing on my skin as compared to how Multi-Defense Protector did. The good thing about both of these Shiseido sunscreens is that they both wouldn’t leave a white casting on your skin after application.
I could now get the idea why the BA at Shiseido highly recommended me Multi-Defense Protector in the first place when I was scouting for sunscreen. Multi-Defense Protector may be a lot more expensive compared to an equivalent sunscreen like Perfect UV Protector but I liked the texture more and how my skin felt after application.
So, here’s what I think of Shiseido Perfect UV Protector SPF50+ PA+++ in a nutshell:
1. Less thicker texture compared to Multi-Defense Protector.
2. Mildly scented.
3. Doesn’t break out on my sensitive skin.
4. Doesn’t feel oily.
5. Cheaper compared to Multi-Defense Protector judging on the size of the bottle.
6. Doesn’t leave white casting.
1. Albeit it doesn’t feel oily, but my skin looked greasy after application.
2. Doesn’t leave a very smooth finishing like Multi-Defense Protector did.
Overall Rating: 4 out of 5
Repurchase? I don’t think so, preferred Multi-Defense Protector more.
