Whether it’s summertime sunshine or winter wonderland, applying SPF is a must! I’m not going to lie, applying sunscreen before or after makeup application can be a hassle and sometimes sunscreen can feel sticky. That’s why I always try to find makeup products that include SPF.
Shiseido has come out with Sports BB Broad Spectrum SPF 50+, a foundation meets sunscreen product that enhances a natural, athletic look. Their unique Japanese technology means the more sweat produced the stronger the sun protection.
Shiseido Sports BB Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ WetForce
This ingenious new sunscreen-makeup hybrid keeps skin looking undeniably gorgeous and protected, even while having fun under the sun playing sports and working out. A transfer-resistant BB tinted sunscreen, discover the ultimate sun protection formula with innovative WetForce Technology.
What is WetForce Technology? This sunscreen’s UV protection veil becomes more effective when the applied area is exposed to water or perspiration for 30 minutes.
This super-lightweight formula blends easily into skin and stays put, delivering comfortable natural coverage that camouflages uneven skin texture and tone. The product has a runny consistency and has a light sweet fragrance that lingers for a short while.
I love how smooth it applies to the skin and leaves no sticky residue. It provided a great BB cream coverage and was able to even out my skin tone.
The Shiseido Sports BB Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ is available in 3 shades (light, medium, dark). The dark shade was a bit tan on me but with a little bit of a summer vacay tan, I’m pretty sure this shade would match perfectly. That being said, the shade range isn’t wide enough. If the darkest shade can almost be my match, this product would not be suitable for someone who has an even darker complexion.
Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream SPF 40*
An ultra hydrating, feather-light daily sunscreen for face and body that effectively protects skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays that cause photo-aging. Provides exceptional hydration and protects against external aggressors such as dryness and air pollution. Invisible finish for beautiful, healthy-looking skin.
Hydro-Restoring Complex contains moisturizing amino acids for continuous moisture. While Scutellaria Baicalensis helps promote the appearance of youthful-looking skin.
The Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream has SPF 40. A lotion consistency and is super lightweight. It goes on smooth and leaves skin feeling hydrating. It doesn’t leave any stickiness or cream marks on the skin. The scent of this sunscreen is similar to the Sports BB Broad Spectrum SPF 50+; a light, sweet fragrance.
Shiseido Ultimate Cleansing Oil*
A rinse-off oil-based cleanser specially formulated for quick and easy removal of high SPF water-resistant sunscreen and foundation. Feels light and silky while protecting skin’s natural moisture as it works.
Developed to deep cleanse with extreme mildness. It applies easily and rinses away quickly, leaving no feeling of stickiness.
Making sure that my hands, face, and body are dry before application, I smooth the cleansing oil over dry skin in circular motion and rinse the product off thoroughly. In the end, it was a light cleansing oil that removed all of the sunscreen and foundation. It left a cleansed skin and did not leave the skin feeling stiff or lack of moisture.
