    Shesido sunscreen is wonderful. I've used it for years now. This is my favorite sunscreen. It's not greasy at all and never causes breakouts in my fair and delicate skin.

      Comments about Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 42:

      I'm certainly a budget-buyer but splurged on this for my birthday after reading the reviews, testing it in store, and having an unfortunate incident where my old stand-by Neutrogena's Breakout-Free SPF 110 began leaving white rings around my eyes, ears, and neck after running errands on a few hot days. Ugh. Like other reviewers said, the bottle is laughably tiny but the liquidy, nearly watery texture means a little goes a long way. It absorbs right in with no white cast (I'm about the color of Alicia Keys for reference), has a very pleasant, clean scent, and wears comfortably all day. It's not exactly mattifying on ultra-oily skin like mine but I don't know if a sunscreen product that exists can do that. The finish is more of a clean, hydrated, and balanced look and it supports oil-control. Still, I'm exceptionally pleased with my purchase. The real test will come when I take it to the beach!

        I have a lot of requirements for sunscreen: protection, dry quickly (who has time to wait in the morning), can apply makeup right after, not much whiteness, not greasy, no irritation....So far this is the only item stays on my list.

        Comments about Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 42:

        The only thing they can do to improve this is that I wish they'd tint it. It does have a SLIGHT white film but it's easily covered by makeup. This is perfect under makeup, no pilling, no sticky residue, fast dry down, low scent. It's quickly becoming my HG sunscreen. Thanks Shiseido!

          Comments about Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 42:

          I had a couple sunblocks at home and got some free samples so I did an experiment with this. I used it side by side with Neutrogena sunblock, la mer sunblock, and supergoop. I was at an all day outdoor music festival. The sun was blazing. By evening, the spots where I had used the other products were varying shades of tan and red but the shiseido by far did the best job. This stuff really works, even if you are in the hot sun all day!

          I have a long skincare regimen, and in my mornings it's nice to apply all my products and finish off with this beauty. It leaves my skin with a soft satin finish. Not greasy and oily but still a healthy light sheen. I love it.

            This is my holy grail spf hands down. Everytime I try a different spf I always go back to this one. This one is super lightweight. I am tan and it doesn't make me white or shiny. It had a semi matte finish. I love that it actually helps with oil control. Helps my make up look flawless longer. I wear this after my oil free moisturizer.
