Rated 4.56 out of 5 stars
I don't leave the house without a coat of sunscreen - ever. But I don't like the white cast and slick feel of most of the many sunscreens that I've tried. When I tried a sample of the Ultimate Sun Protector Lotion SPF 50, I knew I had found the perfect sunscreen for me! It goes on clear and sinks in quickly, so no more ghostly look and white smudges on everything (my handbags, the inside of my car, furniture, etc). Also, it has a faint, pleasant scent. I have already ordered one large bottle and then another one to make sure I don't run out.
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!

I tried it on in the store & loved it. I bought one & it ended up being stright water, definitely not like the one I tried in store.

I love this sunscreen! I love that it's sheer and I don't have to worry about it leaving a white cast, it actually leaves such a nice glow! It feels like a nice light serum and I can see a big difference when I use it, it leaves my skin feeling velvety! I also love that they offer a bigger size than the one I typicallt see at the store, I will continue to repurchase this!

I wear this daily under my makeup. This is my daily moisturizer, that also has great sunscreen protection. Unless I'm in the water for a day (which is rare), I don't get burned or tan on my face, and I'm outside a LOT! Love this because it provides excellent protection, but it's thin enough to be used u set my foundation.

I love this lotion and I use it every day. It has a nice fresh scent and makes my skin so silky and soft.

This sunscreen is really light. It does not have the sunscreen smell. Recommend it.
Christina from New York
Goes on with no whitecast but the only downside is it is quite literally the greasiest sunscreen I have ever used. Well, maybe not grease but it leaves moisture on your face for the rest of the day and you will need to blot your face to feel comfortable. To have a glowy look under makeup, where powder is applied afterward, this works well, or as a body sunscreen, but as a face sunscreen, too greasy

It's really nice! Does not have any white cast but do be careful near your eyes… It really doesn't feel oily at all! Hydrating and silky feel.

I could not read the ingredients when i ordered. I hope for minimal sunscreen

This is the ultimate sunscreen as the name says. It is an SPF 50+ that does not cast a ghost white film. Instead, it leaves a gorgeous silky glow on my skin, softens and diminishes imperfections, brightens the face in the most natural way. It is dewy and absorbs readilly. And, it protects my skin from the sun. I cannot ask for more in a sunscreen. It goes on like a tinted moisturizer. I'm so happy. When doing errands, I don't even have to wear foundation because this sunscreen makes my skin look much more flawless than it really is. So worth the money! I'm ordering more, one for my office, one for my car, and one for home.

This has been an expensive mistake. My daughter and I both experience breakouts when we use it, and the EWG's Guide to Sunscreens gives it a rating of 9 (10 is the worst). I wish I could get my money back.

At first this does feel a little bit greasy, but it does settle in after a few minutes. This kept me protected in Florida (with a super high UV index of 9-10 each day) and also didn't break me out or irritate my skin in other ways. Also doesn't leave you white and pasty. I think this is the best facial SPF on the market.

I bought the Ultimate Sun Protector Lotion SPF 50+ Sunscreen and our whole family loves using it! The lotion goes on smoothly and sinks in. There is no oil or whiteness to this lotion. It seems to give us super protection from the sun. We live near the Gulf of Mexico and found that this lotion kept us from getting burned with one application. We often float in the water and this product worked beautifully. My husband loved using it and asked for another bottle for our upcoming trip to the mountains. I was happy that he was so willing to use this Shiseido lotion as he was reluctant to use other sunscreens.
Thank you for creating such a stellar sunscreen! We are fans!

I used this sunscreen at the beach this summer during a family vacation and it worked beautifully - I did not get sunburned! Unfortunately, I bragged on it so much to my daughter and daughter-in-law that they started "borrowing" it from me to use it on themselves. That started both of my granddaughters to using it, as well! Needless to say, I was lucky that it lasted to the end of the week. At least none of us got sunburned. Next summer I am going to order several bottles for our multi-generational family vacation so that I can have my own bottle to myself.

This sunscreen smells so nice and citrusy. It leaves no white cast and leaves my face so smooth but its soooo greasy and makes me look oily all day. I wish it worked on me :(
PAV6 from Houston, TX
Shiseido is one of the best skincare out there. I have major skin issues including eczema, skin allergies, and atopic dermatitis. It is difficult to find sunscreen so I did my research and saw that this product was #1 in every list and my own dermatologist agreed with my research and suggested it, too. I love it! Not greasy, does not make your skin look like watered chalk so not pasty. Highly recommend!
Marlene from CA
Perfect for my dry skin I just wish it had a different smell, not to fond of the smell. Stays on for a long time even when you sweat
Chell from Arizona
Living in Arizona sunscreen is a must 24/7. I have tried alot of brands and hands down this brand is the best. The sunscreen is absorbed into my skin fast. It has a refreshing citrus scent . Skin feels so soft after applying. Highly recommend to anyone.
Italgal from Seattle
When I first tried this sunscreen I liked how it felt and smelled. However once it sits unused you have to shake it or you get oil, not lotion. It is greasy on the skin. This is way overpriced.
Will be returning this from Los Ángeles
My skin is always clear then i got this sunscreen and broke out! So sad cause i wanted to love it. A mineral sunscreen is the move esp for the eye area this one is so runny and greasy and oily to the max drying time takes forever.
Meghan from Dickinson, ND
This is by far the worst sunscreen I've ever used. The texture is weird, its perfumed, and it doesn't absorb into the skin. The Biore UV essence is cheaper and doesn't clog your pores. Ever since using this my skin has been greasier and I've been breaking out all along my jawline with small whiteheads. Thought i could trust this brand because of the price tag but what I've been realizing is these overpriced products are just too much hype with nothing to show for it.

This stuff BURNS my eyes. I looked like i had been crying for a while because of how red my eyes were. I wore it to go to the taylor swift concert so it made my crying even worse
daisy from UT
This felt super greasy on my skin and the fragrance is very strong. This doesn't absorb quickly enough for me, and the packaging for this is finniky on how much it disperses when you squeeze. I will not be repurchasing this, if you want a glowy sunscreen stick with supergoop.
Biker from Colorado
i love it so much, super light you can wear it under make up, i mountain bike and this sunscreen dont leave any white marks.

Literally, one of the best sunscreens out there. Yes, the price is a bit high, but I'd splurge. One of the very few sunscreens that moisturizes well, doesn't leave a white cast, and doesn't make you look greasy.
