I bought the Uvidea XL melt in BB cream 01. My skintone is MAC20-25, Diorskin nude #21. The Uvidea comes in 01 - pink tone & 02 - yellow tone. I can wear either shade as my skin is very close to neutral toned and the BB cream is quite sheer and easily blended into the skin. The Mexoryl sunscreen in Uvidea is quite impressive. It has high protection against UVA. It doesn't say it's water resistant but Mexoryl sunscreens uses an oil based sunscreen so you will need a good cleanser to remove it at the end of the day. I use QV gentle wash & it has no problems removing it. It did not cause acne and I even tested it by sleeping in it! It also did not accentuate my dry flaky chin. The problem with it is the tint smudges very easily. If I accidentally touched my face with wet hands, the tint will be dissolved by the water. Coverage is not as long lasting as a proper foundation & it will only hide mild redness. It's also pricey at nearly AUD30 for 30ml. The tube packaging with small nozzle makes it incredibly easy to dispense the right amount of cream needed.

Oh my land I hope this stuff doesn't break me out, beccause I think I have found my HG sunscreen after 10 years of searching. It was quite expensive, I got the porcelaine tinted version from Rakuten and paid $50 something for it. It melts right in and feels if you are wearing nothing at all. No irritation whatsoever (I was worried because of the Mexoryl XL) no breakouts (so far 5 days in) makeup goes over it perfectly with no shine. Has a PPD of 18....fantastic for a daily sunscreen. The porcelaine tint evens out my NC15 skintone perfectly. I wish this stuff was easier to get, but I will pay anything for the perfect sunscreen. The only one I see on ebay now is the BB version, I may try that in the future, but I LOVE the one I have now. HOT DOG!

This product is made for asian-sensitive skin. This range also has a tinted BB cream version with a high SPF, but this review is for the normal sunscreen. It comes in a small bottle, whick you need to shake a little before applying the fluid. The product is very watery and light, it's supposed to be non-greasy, but I think it does leave a slightly greasy film on my skin after application. Also I think it contains alcohol, which irritates my eyes a little. Once it has fully soaked in to the skin, it will not leave a white cast and it's suitable as a make-up base. Overall a nice product.
Big Con: It's about 35US$ for 30ml. That's insane.

I love this sunscreen. It is very light sunscreen with high SPF protection. The texture is just like water. It doesn't leave your skin an oily touch at all. More importantly, it didn't break me out or cause irritation. My favorite sunscreen so far.

-This is very lightweight and great for my oily skin.
- the SPF 50 is great for summer time

- fair coverage
- very expensive

I would purchase it again because it does not make my face greasy.

I have the melt-in bb cream version of this. I apply this religiously when I'm going out to work cause of the high spf protection. *Sunspot Paranoia* It does make the face slightly more oily, but not overly so. I'm an MAC NC 15 and this color is fine for me, blends in well. Coverage is only average but it is quite natural :) It's quite pricey at S$49 for 30ml but I'll do anything to prevent sunspots or toasting in the sun. It's not perfect but I can't live without it lol~ At least until another high spf product can replace this :D

I got lots of free samples of this, I really like it, it's light enough and feels comfortable on your skin, and it's easy to put on your makeup afterwards too, I usually put this right after my sodium hyaluronate serum and then my foundation, I don't use another layer of lotion as I think it's too much for my skin, it works really well even without another layer of lotion.

I like it, I haven't bought it so far because I got LOTS of free samples, and I think it's kinda expensive.

I just bought a bottle. I think its one of the newer products so it has a PPD of 18. Not sure of where one of the reviewers bought hers but I bought mine for about SGD 40(after 20% discount. Original price is 49.90.) I agree its a bit expensive but I think its worth it. I used to use another of LRP's sunscreen (can't remember its name but its orange in colour) and it was super oily for my skin. It's better after I apply on some loose powder though it will still become slightly oily throughout the day. I like the fact that its slightly tinted; when it's applied on, your skin kinda looks glowly and radiant. My mom loves it too after she used it and she went to buy another bottle immediately for herself.

i stay in singapore so its hot and humid all the time; not sure how good this product will be in a dryer climate though.

This sunscreen is sold in Asia only. I got the new version with PPD 16 (I think the older version is PPD 10 or 11) and it costs around USD33 including tax for a 30ml bottle. The texture and finish are very similar to LRP's Fluide Extreme, maybe only slightly lighter but the PPD is also lower. It has a very liquidy texture, similar to Sofina or Shiseido, but oilier than the other two. While the two Japanese sunscreens leave a very matte finish, this one does leave a shine. However it is nothing terrible and the shine can be taken away with some powder and a light blotting once during the day. Overall it's not bad and I like it, but I will not repurchase because I find it very similar to the Fluide Extreme and I'd rather just use the FE. FE is cheaper, and has higher PPD.

Edited September 2008: I no longer use this susncreen on my face. It's just too greasy and after 2 weeks of continuos use, it gave me clogged pores and some cysts on my chin. I think my skin can't tolerate Meroxyl. Downgrade this to two Lippies
