Do you still remember that I mentioned about getting a Cervarix shot some time last week? The moment the needle was poked into my muscle, it was painful but bearable. The pain eased when the needle was taken out but there was muscle tension the next day on the spot where the injection was made. It had been more than a week since the vaccination took place.
It took me more than a week to realize that the swell had yet subsided. And yeah, I got a bump on the vaccine spot. It is not at all painful if you do not press on the bump. However, it feels itchy at times. Sister thought that it is best for me to return to the clinic for a consultation and she mentioned that I should have returned sooner. So, I am returning tomorrow evening and hoping that everything will be alright.
Anyways, I am not going to rant much about the swelling bit. Today’s blog entry will be a review of Shiseido Perfect UV Protector SPF50+ PA++++ Wet Force.
Shiseido Perfect UV Protector SPF50+ PA++++ Wet Force
If you had been following my blog long enough, you might have picked up that I am an avid fan of Shiseido’s sunscreens as compared to other brands. I had tried other sunscreens but none of them was as good as Shiseido’s in my opinion. Shiseido Perfect UV Protector SPF50+ PA++++ Wet Force looked like it is an improved version of their previous sunscreens.
Not only that it comes with bigger SPF coverage than the one which I had been using, Shiseido claims that this is even more water resistant than ever to the extent that the sunscreen stays on even when in contact with water. Some worry that their sunscreen layer would come off with perspiration and whatnot. I only apply sunscreen once per day and no reapplication done throughout the day as I am lazy to do so. *guilty as charged*
Before I bought myself a full size bottle of this product, I was given a free sample size bottle when I was purchasing some White Lucent products some time last year. The consistency of the liquid is still the same as the ones before. It absorbs onto the skin quickly, leaving an almost matte finishing. What I love about this sunscreen is that it did not leave my face looking shiny or greasy as some did.
Most importantly, this sunscreen does not break out on my skin. Having used this sunscreen for quite some time, I like that my skin is not facing much pigmentation (yet) or skin darkening issue. The only downside of this product is however the price tag. Albeit the high price tag, I do believe that a good sunscreen is not what you should save on.
So, here’s what I think of Shiseido Perfect UV Protector SPF50+ PA++++ Wet Force in a nutshell:
1. Does not break out on my skin.
2. Absorbs onto the skin quickly and leaving an almost matte finishing.
3. No pigmentation or skin darkening issue (yet)
4. Not oily or greasy feeling after application.
1. Price tag.
