So I purchased the large bottle at Ulta, and have since returned. I read great things about it and decided to give it a try as a summer sunscreen that looked more matte than my normal one. The bottle is small, yet sturdy and pretty. I managed to get it for $33 for the large bottle at Ulta, but they have since raised to the $46 Sephora is charging, which does seem like a steep price that I doubt I would pay unless this was perfect in every way for my skin. It shakes well and does not leak that I could tell in the week I had it. It has a light scent, but I actually found it pleasant, and I usually HATE scent in facial products. It was a very liquid product that absorbed almost immediately after applying. There was a slight white cast that faded/blended shortly after application. SPF is high and while I didn't get to actually test it in a full day of sun, seemed good. Where it all went wrong for me is the high alcohol content. It really dried me out and left my skin feeling tight and caused flaking/peeling, which in turn the sunscreen clung to, causing white patches. I don't have an issue with alcohol in skincare if it is further down the list or is not drying (yes, Paula's choice site says alcohol is horrible, but I could not find any real research or sources that back this up, and many dermatologists and doctors saying there's no evidence for this). Anyway, I tried moisturizing before hand and patting it on vs rubbing it, but my nose was still peeling and my other dry patches getting clingy with product, and skin that's is usually not dry feeling tight. I was not able to make it work due to the drying nature. This would be great for oily skin, but for sensitive, combo skin it was no good.

This isn't a bad sunscreen but I'm glad I didn't pay for it.It's EXTREMELY small.It leaves a white cast on my already white skin.I like the texture and I enjoy using it but for the tiny amount PLUS whitecast, it's a no.

This is my new favorite sunscreen to wear under makeup. Previously, I was using Elta MD, but recently it started balling and pilling underneath my foundation, particularly cream foundations that require some rubbing and blending. I like this Shiseido sunscreen because it's milky, lightweight, and absorbs quickly without any white cast. The only thing is the scent is a little strong, but it's not a dealbreaker. I like this better than the cream version, which is thicker, heavier, and has a bit of a white cast even when blended very well. I'll definitely repurchase this sunscreen when I run out!

For years I've used Shiseido's Ultimate Sun Protection lotion -- the one in the blue and orange bottle - and thought it was great. But when they took the SPF down to 38 (I have melasma and need at least 40) I started looking for alternatives. I am in my 50s with dry/combination skin. This sunscreen is PERFECTION. It melts into your face, doesn't mess up foundation and even provides a (slight) matifying effect - perfect for my shiny nose. I FREAKIN' LOVE THIS STUFF! The only issue is it's literally more than 3x the price of my former Shiseido product - $32 for one ounce! And yes this bottle is tiny. (Of course, it's beautiful yet practical packaging like all Shiseido products.)I'm going to have to figure out where else to cut back so I can put this in my budget permanently, because I don't think I can live without it. The only downside is I sometimes feel myself skimping on application because it is so pricey - not a good thing with sunscreen!

I like this sunscreen, shiseido really nails the sunscreen game
a thin milky consistency that needs to be shaken before pouring out
light semi matte finish, strong alcohol scent so dry skinned, beware.
you can use moisturizer before this and this can work for you, which is something I actually do myself
be sure to really rub it in well because there is a slight white cast, and whether or not that goes away depends on what type of lotion you used before and also how well you massage into your skin
I really like the small bottle that makes it easy to throw into your purse to take with you and also is soo good for traveling

I love the packaging because it is easy to travel with. It absorbs quickly to the skin and it really does protect my face from the sun.

I bought this to replace my beloved CeraVe SPF that just continued to clog my pores.The consistency for this is fantastic. It's almost runny. No extra oil or sheen.I gave it 4 stars because there's really no additional skincare properties like other in the category. But, I do like this to do just what it is, provide sun protection.

See my review for the Shiseido Urban Environment Cream...All I can say is WHITE FACE PAINT (and I am pale). I tried a sample of this after I used the thick cream version of this, and I hated it just as much.I am sensitive to many face sunscreens but want good moisture so I had high hopes for this product. Unfortunately I was severely disappointed (how does this have such high reviews?)It was runny in consistency, so I was shocked when I had trouble rubbing it in. Everywhere I put it was stark white and appeared to have a film over it. I tried to make it work, but rubbing it in further only gave me weird red and white splotches from touching my face and the product.It didn't feel very moisturizing, and my it felt weird to put makeup on top of. I have dry/combination skin, but it did this all over my face.I definitely will not purchase, and will stick to my garden variety Olay, which is worlds better than this. I am utterly disappointed.

Liking this a lot so far. Been trying to find a replacement for the older version of MAC prep & prime spf 50. Eventually everything either else breaks me out or turns me into a greaseball by mid day. A week in, and this seems to be working well and does a good job keeping the oilies at bay. Fingers crossed!

I'm pretty sure I had an allergic reaction to this product -- I'm not sure what caused it, but I would guess the fragrance. This product has a very strong powdery-floral fragrance, which I do not think belongs in a sunscreen (or any face product, really!), and as soon as I applied it, my face started to itch and burn, terribly. I washed it off immediately, popped a Benadryl, and spent the rest of the afternoon on the couch. I wouldn't describe my skin as sensitive at all, but apparently it really disagrees with perfumed products! I am returning this product to Sephora today. I'm having a devil of a time finding a good sunscreen for face, this is my third fail in four tries! :($32 at Sephora for 1 oz in a small plastic bottle with a screw-off cap.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
