Summer is here and I couldn’t be more excited. Even though we’ve been experiencing some rainy days and unexpected cooler temperatures it has been great so far. Apart from staying away from the sun which is almost impossible, Sunscreen is the way to go if you want to protect your skin from sun burns and premature skin ageing. I mean it is a no brainer right? Sunlight is the main source of UV rays and if you get a lot of exposure from the sun without wearing sun screen it can have damaging effects on the skin. I was excited when influenster send over this June’s skin care Voxbox featured Shiseido Skincare products. Shiseido is a high-end skincare, makeup and fragrance brand and to be honest with you this is my first time using their product. The box includes a Shiseido Wet Force Sports BB, Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream and Shiseido Ultimate Cleansing Oil. So here is the breakdown.
Shiseido Wet Force Sports BB
This wet force BB is a mixture of skincare and makeup. It acts as a good makeup base (primer), does not turn oily or dry out my skin. It has SPF protection rating of 50+ and is water resistant for up to 80 minutes. It performs well when it comes in contact with water. On its own, this product looks ashy when applied on my face, so in order to make up for that, I have to wear makeup. I don’t like to wear makeup when I’m exercising or swimming but I have used this product when we were out on a picnic. Even though it comes in three different colours ( light, medium and dark) the dark shade I received the still didn’t work well with my skin tone. The good news is I didn’t get any sun burn from the long hours of sun exposure during our picnic.
Verdict: I love the fact that it gets more effective when it comes in contact with water. So one can swim, exercise and enjoy the outdoors, knowing that Wet Force sports BB has you covered.
Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream
This UV protection cream is for both face and body. It has an SPF of 40 and it is great for everyday skin protection from the sun. It doesn’t have a scent which is awesome and easily absorbs into the skin. I always put it on 20-30 minutes before I leave the house. It protects my skin from the sun and keeps it looking great
I love this product and would buy it when this one runs out.
Shiseido Ultimate Cleansing Oil
This is not my first time using cleaning oil. You can check out my other review here and I was happy to try out this too. I use this product to remove my makeup which leaves my face feeling very clean. I put a considerate amount on my hands and then rub on my face, after 15 seconds, watch it off and then follow up with a cotton ball on areas I think I missed with my hands. It didn’t leave my face oily which I think it’s pretty awesome. It didn’t leave any oily residue on the sink because the oil emulsifies.
Verdict. Love this product and would recommend it.
