Shiseido has been one of the brands that I have always trusted their skincare range blindly. Their sunscreen and sun protection range is just amazing, although we are at the end of summer yet sunscreen protection skincare products are meant to be used all year long especially during summer and winter months where the sun hits directly on the skin. I have had tried their sun care range quite wide fully and now I was super excited to test a few new additions from the brand. Here I have an overview put together on what I have tried so far plus new arrivals.
WetForce SPF 50+ Sunscreen
WetForce range is probably the best sun care range I have tried so far and it carries quite amazing products. This WetForce technology makes this range interesting. This technology becomes stronger just when it comes into contact with water or perspiration and it’s water-resistant for 80 minutes after its application. Here are an overview and details on this collection.
Ultra Sun Protection Lotion WetForce SPF 50+ Sunscreen (C$49) is one of the most loved skincare products from me. I have been using this for more than two years now and it seems like I can’t replace it with another one.
It’s lightweight with a milky formula that turns out clear on the skin and is water-resistant and sweatproof. It’s the one that I trust when on poolside. It’s non-greasy and not heavy at all and doesn’t have that awful scent that many sunscreens do. It also comes in a spray version Ultimate Sun Protection Spray that I am in love for all over body application. It spritzes nicely and evenly all over the body that goes on clear.
After Sun Intensive Recovery Emulsion (C$40) is another sun care product that is a must-have when you’re out in the sun. It really takes care of after sunburn or skin peel. You literally see no skin peeling after using this right off the sun and it takes care of redness within the minutes.
This time I was super excited to try out the Clear Stick UV Protector WetForce SPF 50+ Sunscreen (C$37). This was something I had my eyes on for a while now. The stick version is easy to use while you’re on the go and perfect for everyone (kids, men, and women), I think everyone needs to own one.
It goes well under and over your makeup easily and fits in all bags. It makes the reapplication process super easy. The formula is clear so doesn’t leave a white cast as well as doesn’t clog pores.
UV Lip Color Splash SPF 30 been one of the lip balms that I carry in my on-the-go bag that is perfect to add a nice natural tint while it protects it against the UV rays plus it helps lips with aging factors. Its non-greasy and non-sticky and comes in four beautiful colors including a clear one.
Future Solution LX
Something that I wanted to try from the brand was the Future Solution LX Universal Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Sunscreen (C$130). This is a day time moisturizer that protects against UV + environment stress for a more radiant and smoother looking complexion. As my long-time readers know that I have an obsession with luxury sunscreen products especially the one-step moisturizer + sunscreen products. I absolutely love this for its one-step Aggressor Control Technology. It’s lightweight and feels soft and silky on the skin yet it does leave a slight white cast on the skin that melts after a few minutes. It makes a perfect primer under your daily foundation. I find this is one of the products that you can use all year long on top of your moisturizer on cooler days to keep the hydration level well by layering while you can just use this as your moisturizer/primer on hot days. The formula is lightweight and doesn’t feel greasy or heavy on the skin. Blends nicely without leaving any white cast on the skin.
I really take care of my freckles all year long and daily use of a good sunscreen is the key to keep them light on those sunny summer days.
Here are the swatches of both Future Solution LX and Wetforce Ultra Protection Lotion side by side and blended.
I have been super impressed with the Future Solution LX Universal Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Sunscreen for its performance and effectiveness as well as it doesn’t clog pores. This has been one product that I have been using for the past couple of weeks on daily basis and simply impressed!
You can find all these sun protectors and sunscreens on all Shiseido’s counter as well as online a Sephora.
