I am currently using the latest version of the Anessa Perfect Essence sunscreen. This new version is probably the biggest change that has happened to this sunscreen line. Shaking is no longer required before each use. The new formula is thicker and not as fluid as the old one. I was worried at first as I have been using this sunscreen line for a long time. I have tried many other sunscreens, but …Read more

Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen was one of few sunscreens which met my criteria. It's matte, non-oily, no white cast, and most importantly, doesn't cause any irritation to my rather sensitive eyes. Great for summertime, but a little too dry in winter even for my oily skin. So I've picked up this "Essence" version, which claims to be more …Read more

I love the Anessa Perfect UV but it is quite drying (love the matte finish though). So I thought I would try the Essence in the hopes that I would still get a matte finish but with a little more moisture.

The one I tried is the reformulated PA++++ version (not the older PA+++). This Perfect Essence is a very runny liquid just like a lot of Japanese sunscreens. It doesn't give me …

This review is for the 2013, PA++++ version.

Perfect Essence has a thin texture, is easily applied, doesn't leave a white cast, doesn't ball up and feels light and fresh on the skin. It differs from Perfect UV in that it is more moisturising (less drying), I'm guessing because of a lower alcohol content (although I don't know the exact ingredients). The downside of …

Bought this because I am curious to try Anessa sunscreens. I got this in the 2013 version (white bottle, where as the previous 2010 and 2011 bottle is light blue) and the PA level is improved to PA++++ (more protection from dark spots and tanning) and now it's lightly scented rather than un-scented like the previous version.

The texture is runny, a little bit thicker than the …

As a sunscreen, I found this effective. I got no extra colour, and certainly did not burn. This was my first experiment with Japanese sunscreens, and compared to many of the sunscreens I'd used previously, the texture and finish of this were amazing. It did not turn my pale skin ghostly, and did not make me glow like a disco ball by the end of the day.
However, after using this for a …

I took the chance to venture out of my comfort zone given the good reviews and also that it is also by Shiseido, and I regret it! I have been a loyal user of Shiseido sunscreens, I've used the blue packaging version, and most recently white tube called Urban Environment UV protection SPF 30 and 50 - which I love. This Anessa sunscreen feel really light and watery and like a previous …Read more

I am on the neverending search for sunscreen that protects my skin while also not breaking me out. I was convinced they didn't exist, but finally this search has led me straight to Japanese SS. I bought this product along with a few other kinds of Japanese SS from ichibankao.com (great service!). I liked this one the best of all of them, until I tried the tiny little sample bottle of the …Read more

This stuff is the best! I use to have the old formula, in the silver bottle. When I used that all up, I bought this new version and I LOVE it. It's even better than the original formula. It is matte, goes on smooth, and acts as a primer! It also blocks out the sun perfectly! When I use this during the summer, I don't any sort of tan on my face. Which I love. I apply this over my …Read more

I'm on my 2nd bottle now and i lovee the product so much. Sheseido never disappoints me. :) The consistency is very thin and it goes on easily. it evens out my skin tone a little too.

However as I've gone through the second half of the bottle i notice the chemical smell. could be due to high alcohol content (but i'm not sure) which makes it so thin. i have a backup (3rd …
