Shiseido Urban Environment Tinted UV Protector SPF 43 – Tinted Sunscreen
As a serious skincare aficionado, I learned the hard way that sunscreen is by far the #1 most important skincare product we need to use anytime we leave the house. I have been extremely fortunate thus far to not have suffered from skin cancer like many others have, with just insignificant sun spots to complain about vainly. To protect as much as humanly possible against skin cancer, besides avoiding direct sunlight the next best thing we can do is use sunscreen.
This is by no means a new subject for those of us serious about good skincare habits. What is the topic du jour lately are sunscreens that combine sun protection, pore refiner and oil suppressant all in one- a task reserved for skincare companies with years of Research & Development behind them.
There have been great sunscreens on the market just as there have been great pore refining serums and oil reducing lotions. All in one, though?
Enter Shiseido’s Urban Environment Tinted UV Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 43. It’s a bb cream, sunscreen, pore refining serum and oil reducing lotion rolled in one. If like me, you can’t stand adding layers of foundation or bb, cc, dd and whatever other zz crazy creams folks come up with, you’ll probably love Shiseido’s Tinted Protector. Perfect for oily skin, this sunscreen imparts a hint of color for that lovely, natural “I just took a long walk on the beach” look without exposing your skin to the sun.
Unlike other sunscreens designed for oily skin, Shiseido’s Urban Environment Tinted Protector glides on silky smooth with no strange residue, no unpleasant odors or separating of ingredients. If you love that trendy Korean poreless look, this is definitely the sunscreen for you, no extra BB CC DD cream or foundation needed. Using this tinted sunscreen, I love how it virtually nixes the need for blush or any other facial coloring.
This tinted sunscreen comes in 3 shades and retails for US $32 for a 30mL tube that lasts about 4 months with once daily use.
