Most Helpful Positive Review You can tell this must...
You can tell this must be some strong stuff!! Smells good, a light fresh lemon scent. Probably not best for everyday use, it is very thick and gives that white out effect. Stashing in the beach bag for high sun summer days. Will use on the body by the ocean. NOT for daily use before makeup
Most Helpful Critical Review New Formula
I have been using this for years, but the formula has recently changed. The heatforce name was added and now it is more greasy. They should have just added a product rather than change it. Now it will take me forever to find another that works like the original. Bummer!

Amazing product leaves a glowy dewy finish allowing you to feel youthful and great. Definitely would recommend but leaves a white cast.

Best sunscreen out there. I use it year round. Non-greasy and goes great under makeup!
Ultimately, I feel this
thatgirlb from undisclosed
Ultimately, I feel this sunscreen is okay. I have combination / oily skin and it is pretty greasy feeling on the skin. It does have a nice silky feel to it and is easy to apply, but it irritates my eyes and never seems to sink in. I would recommend la roche posay over this.
Greasiest Sunscreen Ever
Becky from Charleston SC
This sunscreen is incredibly greasy. It does not absorb into the skin even hours later. Leaves the skin literally slick. Also burns my sensitive eyes incredibly bad. No white cast, but I would not recommend at all.
Won't vacation without it!
jlippy from Pittsburgh, PA
Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion has been a game changer for me. After years of trying different sunscreens, only to break out in hives and itch for days, this is the only sunscreen that I can wear. Even brands recommended by my dermatologist caused a reaction. I never vacation without a bottle.
Just one question? I like to snorkel. Do you make an environmentally friendly product?
Not Worth It
Gorllife from WI
I've been trying to find a sunscreen that doesn't break me out or burn my eyes, but this did both of those things. To me, it doesn't seem worth it for the price. It comes out pretty watery, but when you put it on your face, it feels like it thickens up at least. The fact that it doesn't leave a white cast is nice, but there are so many other (cheaper) options that are coming out recently that do the same thing. I have extremely dry skin and this made it so greasy and it made my face break out in tiny red bumps all over… not just acne, but a rash as well. Even though I didn't put it near my eyes, it still burned them and made them water so bad. I'm still learning that more expensive doesn't always mean "better". It has been 3 days since I last used it and believe me, I've been cleaning my face super well (double cleansing and using light, sensitive skin friendly products), but it still feels greasy and the corners of my eyes are still raw from all the watering and burning (which was still happening even after the product was long gone from my skin). Not a great experience.
Moisturizes and protects
anli from Los Angeles, CA
I bought this a few months ago and am very satisfied. Will buy again.
The only positive is the sun protection
Mrscoach from Boston
I was looking for a facial sunblock either with tint or something I could wear under foundation that would stay on and would not melt into my eyes and sting them. This failed on everything. It does protect from the sun but it is so greasy I could never wear foundation with it. It melts into my eyes and stings like crazy. I wish I hadn't wasted my money on it.
I liked it
taylorscaa9 from undisclosed
I enjoyed this sunscreen. It smells good and works good. Just leaves a bit of a white cast but besides that it's good!
Pricey but worth it
s from Reno
This stuff lasted me most of the day and I love the fact that it's light weight. It says it's water resistant for 80 minutes and it's true to its word. I get made fun of for spending so much on 3.3 oz for the price but it's worth it for the ingredients and what it does.
DCar from undisclosed
This a greasy formula. Yes, it disappears but your skin is shiny and slimy. I was hoping this formula would be more like the Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector SPF 42 for Face.
Strong smell and greasy
Mimi from LA
It used to be really good and I have used Shiseido sunscreen for more than 5 years somehow it's greasy now and the smell is quite strong , my perfume couldn't cover it and I smell the sunscreen the whole time :(
My fav to go sunscreen
akritis1 from undisclosed
Love this product. It is a little greasy but I love to wear it under my makeup. Acts as a perfect primer. Give the dewy glow finish if not wearing any makeup. If I want to go Matt I also just finish up with a little translucent power and I am all ready to go. I have been using this a lot this summer!!
love!!! great for aerial activities!
rlomasengowens from undisclosed
I do a variety of workouts on aerial apparatus's and normally lotion is a no no. However I live in az and sunblock is a must! Im happy to say I can use this and safely workout!
Very good product not
chanelbb1c9 from undisclosed
Very good product not greasy what so ever, I'm not one for adding spfs into my routine but this was very easy to add without messing up makeup or altering my skincare products. Will be a regular buy from now on.
Love this one more than the sensitive skin one
Icyswim from undisclosed
I am a swim coach and swimmer, and so I spend a lot of time in the sun. I've tried the Shiseido sunscreen for sensitive skin, but that one makes a white cast and you really feel like you are wearing sunscreen. But this one does not leave a white cast, and after a few minutes, I do not feel like I am even wearing sunscreen, it literally feels like lotion, whereas the sensitive skin one was really runny, almost like white out. I usually don't like writing reviews, but after using this sunscreen, I love it so much, I had to write one, I highly recommend this particular one.
not my fav.
00victoria09 from undisclosed
Just hated this. My face was so oily and slick after 4/5 hrs of wear. It is a dewy finish which is okay but I just can't seem to like it. I tried multiple times. It just was t for me.
Pebbles from Colorado
I love this product. It doesn't leave a film like some other sunscreens. It has a light feeling and a slight pleasant smell to it. I'm a mail carrier and it works quite well for me in Colorados harsh sun. I have used many different brands and this ones a keeper.
Love this! It doesn't
willowr2 from undisclosed
Love this! It doesn't have a white cast and works like a charm. I would probably rate it more like a 3.5 star if I could, but I'm rounding up. The consistency is very...drippy. It can feel greasy on the skin as well. I personally have more dry skin so I don't mind the glow it gives me, but I definitely do wish it wasn't so soupy!
Best cream SPF hands down
elisac83 from undisclosed
I love love love this spf! It went on super smooth and left my skin feeling the best it has ever felt with an SPF!!! Not sticky at all, it has a shimmer affect that I love. Also this product smelled good and when I would use it On my face it did not bother my eyes at all. I have already purchased a replacement after finishing the one I received. 10/10 DEFINITELY get this SPF! Your skin will love you!
heidip28 from undisclosed
This is such a great sunscreen! It fully protects you and it doesn't leave behind that typical SPF smell! I've been using it all summer so far and I grow to love it even more. It also does not leave a greasy residue behind afterwards.
Love it. Never looking
mollyn22 from undisclosed
Love it. Never looking back. Will purchase again. Love everything it has to offer. If you're in the sun, it's a must! Smells good. Blends well and moisturizes.
Best face sunscreen
brittnickole from undisclosed
Not oily. Doesn't leave a film on your face or skin. Smells amazing! Last 50 mins. Replies wonderfully.
Atufo from Chicago
Great product very light on the skin smells great, highly recommendable
I love this sunscreen!
drmarcoe2 from undisclosed
I love this sunscreen! It's not too thick and absorbs nice and evenly. I wear this everyday on my arms and chest now that I'm outside more. I highly recommend as it doesn't feel as greasy as the cheaper brands.
