Review of Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion For Face & Body, spf 60 PA+++ [DISCONTINUED] by ashleydutta
I'm giving this a 3 because it does what it is supposed to do - provide high SPF/PA/PPD sun protection & is waterproof. but it sure is NOT pleasant to use! since it is a liquidy fluid, I thought it would feel light on the skin. boy was I wrong! I've never felt something that feels like such a heavy, greasy mask on the skin! ohhh I feel like my skin is suffocating. while I don't mind it too bad on my body, on my face, I just feel like I want to claw it off. I used it one day on an all day hike, and I did not tan or sunburn, but I did get 3 nice pimples! it is very heavy and pore clogging. it also leaves a very white cast on skin. which is to be expected with a physical sunscreen but still, it was the worst white cast I've ever seen. the smell is also strong traditional sunscreen smell. for $40, I thought this would be something really special - I expected something that felt nice on the skin, or at least bearable, and that didn't have the cheap sunscreen smell. I'm very disappointed and don't think I'd repurchase...unless I feel I am not getting enough sun protection on a beach vaction. well I am going to Hawaii in a week so I will update about this after that!
