Shiseido BB Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ WetForce
This product is a beauty balm that combines skin care and makeup into one. It has a SPF rating of 50 and is water resistant for 80 minutes. Also as with most BB’s, it does have an added tint of colour to be the foundation of your makeup look. It’s perfect for beach/pool days, or even just an everyday summer foundation when you’re going for a natural look. The Shiseido Wet Force BB comes in three different tints, light, medium and dark.
When I first put on the cream I was surprised at the coverage, it really evened out my skintone and covered all my blemishes. BB creams tend to have very light coverage, but this one really looks like a foundation. The best part is, you don’t need to apply so many products, and the if you don’t get your face wet it will last you all day. The only issue I have with this product is the colour. I used the medium, and it was way too light for my skin. In other BB creams I’ve always been a true medium, so I was a little disappointed at the colouring in the product. I would definitely reccomend picking up a shade darker than you usually would. Because of this I won’t be using it as an everyday product, but defintely would reach for it when I’m having a beach/pool day.
Shiseido Ultimate Cleansing Oil
This cleanser is meant to be remove water resistant SPF and long wearing makeup off your skin. I had never used a cleansing oil before this product, mostly because I was scared it would intensify my already oily skin. I am now realizing how wrong I was. The first step in my skincare routine is using the Bioderma Makeup Remover, after that I cleanse my skin with whichever cleanser I’m using at the time. I tried this one for a week, and I found it removed all traces of makeup left on my skin, while leaving it feeling super soft and hydrated. You don’t even need to mosturize after, because that’s how soft and smooth it makes your skin. The other way to use it is in the shower, you can cleanse your whole body with this as it removes strong sunscreen. This product compliments the rest of this range really well.
Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection SPF 40
Shiseido is known for their exceptional sunscreen products and this one is no exception. This is your classic sunscreen for face and body, and is suppose to protect your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays that age your skin.
I tried it on my face and because I’m quite tan right now it made me look a little ghostly by leaving a white cast, so I don’t recommend it as a face product if you’re darker than a medium skin tone. However, on my body it felt really nice and light, without leaving a white residue or looking greasy.
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
