The Anessa perfect UV sunscreen aqua booster has SPF 50+ and PA＋＋＋＋, perfect for use under extreme condition (I have easily-tanned light skin, and after having been exposed to cloudless sunny days for half a month in that 39℃ summer, I got very minimum tan). It also pairs fairly nicely with makeup.
Besides, its water-proof property is serious!
This sunscreen has a strange formula. It is milky white liquid. It feels greasy on my combo-oily facial skin, but it manages to keep my natural oil at bay. So as the sunscreen gradually sets, you gets more matte - great for oily T-zone. However, if you re-apply through out the day, even if you have oily skin, even if you're in extremely hot summer, you'll feel bone dry on the face. And the sunscreen sets to a matte finish very quickly on my hand.
Lastly, I suspect that Shiseido has changed the formula. The sunscreen used not to leave any white cast, but the new version leaves quite a strong white cast on my NC20-25 skin and the paleness takes more time to go away. It is also slightly greasier than before.
Overall, it still feels more comfortable than the majority of sunscreen and it is something I'll keep repurchace.
（Even if it is a really powerful sunscreen, I still don't understand why some people say "a little bit goes a long way". There's no such thing with sunscreen!）
