Shiseido Sunscreen 60 SPF---Really Works Without Break-Outs
Are you looking for a strong, effective sunscreen that can be applied to both the face and body that doesn't make you break-out?
Try this cult fave in the ocean blue container--Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion for Face & Body SPF 60 PA+++ ($39, at Nordstrom's).
Yes, a bit pricey for a sunscreen, but you're getting superior protection in a sand and perspiration-resistant, very water-resistant, and PABA-free formula.
The Shiseido sunscreen has quite the loyal following. Just at MakeupAlley alone, we found lots of fans:
"I find this an entirely effective sunscreen. I wore this to the Boston Marathon this year (as an observer, not a runner), and it was one of the hottest, sunniest days in Boston Marathon history. Not a cloud in the sky, the sun was beating down, and I came home without any red or even browning on my hands or arms."
"The most amazing thing about this sunscreen is that it's actually what has been keeping my foundation looking shine-free and fresh ALL. DAY. LONG. No seriously, the times I've used this, my foundation looks matte for AT LEAST 12 hours, with maybe a couple of blots, and this is in Miami weather..."
"I love this sunscreen. Being extremely pale with freckles, I have to wear sunscreen everyday and this is the only one yet to break me out. I used to use Neutrogeona Ultra-Sheer, and like every other sunscreen it felt like I had liquid saran-wrap on my face. This sinks right in and I can't even feel it at all. Perfect sunscreen!"
"My favorite sunscreen. It's light and non-greasy formula makes it a breeze to put on before makeup. I use it after moisturizer and before primer. The scent is light and pleasant. Best of all, I've definitely noticed a reduction in expression lines now that I use sunscreens daily."
There you have it. This is one super sunscreen to consider if you've been disappointed with all the others.
