Particularly good as an under make-up sunscreen, especially when most of your day is spent indoors but you need something lightweight to protect against UVA rays that get through windows and brief spells outside. Japanese sunscreens as a whole are incredible, there is huge demand domestically for effective high-quality sunscreens that look good on the skin, and as competition is so fierce prices are generally low. This one is fairly cheap, it's readily available online although some sellers will add a huge markup to the price, so be careful. Comes in a 50mL squeezy tube as depicted, although the packaging now looks a little different with an updated design, and has been reformulated so it now offers PA++++ UVA protection as well as SPF50.

It's as the name suggests, a thin and watery product that is similar in consistency to the lightweight essence products popular in the region. It contains chemical sunscreens, so doesn't leave any white or greasy cast, and sinks quickly into skin leaving a nearly undetectable finish - I can quite happily use the recommended quarter teaspoon amount on my face without it looking or feeling like I've smeared a layer of butter all over it. However, it contains alcohol and has a lemony scent - my skin is quite oily, so alcohol in products doesn't dry it out that much, and generally ok with fragranced products. If you have dry and/or sensitive skin, and it doesn't tolerate fragrance or alcohol well, proceed with caution.

I use this for my neck. Yes, neck. I have super oily skin and cystic acne on my chin and neck, this really helps with that because doesn't clog my pores. I live in a city really hot where summer is almost all year and really protects my skin. It feels light and the price is perfect even with the shipping from Japan, cheaper than other high-end sunscreens.

I've been using this sunscreen for the past ten years. I buy a new bottle every summer and it lasts me months. I use it under makeup daily and even my husband and baby uses it. I love how light this is. Feels like water gel with no residue heavy feel. I don't even feel it at all. We have taken it on vacation and also on pool days at home. I have never burned using this. I will continue to purchase year after year.

This sunscreen has helped me get rid of my hyperpigmentation for my face, I use it everyday . It looks great under my makeup, doesn't sting my eyes and doesn't pill. I'm so glad I don't have sensitive skin because the alcohol could be a deal breaker but I don't even know it's there, the smell doesn't even bother me, a lemony scent. I always have a backup tube or two of this wonderful sunscreen. It's a great sunscreen for your face if you can tolerate the alcohol and it's waterproof.

I LOVE this sunscreen. I hate the way sunscreen feels, to say nothing of how terrible makeup looks on top, but this one is a real winner. It doesn't break me out, irritate my skin, or alter my makeup. I use it in place of a regular moisturizer in the morning, and it sinks in really fast and has no funky smell or residue. I'm aware this product contains alcohol, but honestly, it's humid af here in the summer and my skin doesn't care, so neither do I. I'm a bit wary of fake products, so I got mine online from a NYC Asian marketplace--I don't remember the name offhand, but it's mentioned in a Refinery29 article about this product if you Google it. Price was $13.99 for a tube, which is a great value, IMO. I'm sure I'll need another tube soon because my skin is very susceptible to sunburn (thanks, AHAs!) and I slather on a good amount for my face, but I'm happy to order more if it's doing the job. Yes, I'm going to repurchase...soon!

I didn't give 5 stars to this product because of the alcohol content and the potential effects. But personally I love it. Best sunscreen I've tried so far. I have a combination, blackhead-prone dark skin. Despite their claims most sunscreens leave a bit of a cast and get my face oily even tinted ones . This one doesn't at all. The texture is so light and easy to blend. It feels like wearing nothing and the citrus scent is pleasant. I tend to have occasional hormonal breakouts, I didn't notice a change with this product. Also, it doesn't sting my eyes.
My only complaint: the size of the tube. When using this daily it won't last long. But I buy mine less than 10$ on ebay so it's OK.
It's so good I didn't want to try something else but I will try another asian sun care just to get a better perspective. However this easily beats my American and European sunscreens. I recommend.

I absolutely love this sun screen! I have dry skin and this sunscreen won’t dry my skin. I used it under my make up and it sits under my makeup nicely. If you love a good hydrate sunscreen that is not greasy.. this is the one! I bought mine in Asia. But you can also find it in amazon.

I am super picky with sunscreens. I hate the smell, and they always break me out so bad. So bad. But it's so necessary to wear, so I'm glad I have found this product. It is scented so I'm surprised I haven't had any trouble with breakouts. It dries nice and matte and I barely know it's there.
