Review of Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion For Face & Body, spf 60 PA+++ [DISCONTINUED] by lookabbycat
After reading all these terrible reviews of how the new SPF 60 formula doesn't hold a candle to the old SPF 55 formula, I was really expecting the worse when I tried this sunscreen. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I like it. I can't compare with the old formula but I found that the sunscreen absorbed quite quickly into my skin and left it matte. It didn't feel sticky at all.
The sunscreen alone kept me looking matte all day long and I didn't need to touch up my make up or blot once. I usually need to blot several times a day even if I use a matte primer. Btw, the weather here is very hot and humid.
I'm glad I bought this and would definitely repurchase. I have oily skin and with this sunscreen I don't need to put on moisturizer. The sunscreen is thin and liquidy so a little goes a long way. Since I only use this for my face and neck, I'm sure one bottle will last me a long time.
One thing I would say is that this sunscreen is pretty difficult to remove. I would advise others to be very diligent when washing the sunscreen off. It might be why it's causing so many people to break out.
edit-- so it's been 3 weeks since I've started using this and I have noticed that if I have to keep up with a very strict cleansing/exfoliating routine otherwise my skin starts to act up. I'm not acne prone but I have noticed some clogged pores and a few pimples cropping up once I got a little lazy. Even still because it keeps my skin so matte I will continue to use it & still think it deserves 5 stars.
