Most Helpful Positive Review Best Sunscreen for Oily Skin
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!
Most Helpful Critical Review Very costly for the amount
I have only been using this for a week, so far I like the product but the bottle is TINY compared to the cost. It absorbs well, does not make my skin oily or cause breakouts (which is specifically why I wanted to try this product). It does just as the description says, but the bottle is very small and the product is very runny.

I like urban environment oil free uv protector SPF 42 sunscreen because it is light and pleasant to apply to even with or without make up!!

I was getting to the bottom of my Farmacy tube of zinc sunscreen and was in the market for another one. I like to change it up, but base case wanted a zinc sunscreen. I also wanted something that didn't leave me shiny and was a good base for the small amount of makeup I occasionally wear. This is my first time buying anything Shiseido and my goodness is it awesome. I have sensitive skin and this doesn't irritate me at all, doesn't smell like sunscreen, and instead has a nice subtle floral scent. I have combo skin, and it gives me a little bit of a dewy complexion, but by no means makes me greasy. Definitely no longer need a primer because of this beaut, and want to try out more Shiseido because I am so impressed with this sunscreen. Love love love it and will deifnitely repurchase.
Light and absorbs well into skin, not greasy

Since my skin is oily, I am very careful when choosing cosmetics. This oil-free sunscreen is really good, it is not oily at all on my face. I will continue to choose this oil-free sunscreen. It's amazing.

Are you looking for a sunscreen that doesn't feel greasy? Well you found it, my best friend just recently introduced me to shishado; let me tell you that i don't think I'll ever go back to my old creams. It's pricey, i agree!! As a college student It hurt me. But, my face has felt so smooth. I'm not a youngster, but as I aged I have been getting sun spots. Other sunscreens has stinged and irritated my face. But this one is very light, you won't regret it at all! It's a small container but little goes a long way.
Love it so much

I use this every day under makeup or bare faced. I have oily skin, and this sunscreen feels nice on my face. It doesn't make me greasy or leave a white cast. I also feel like it helps with preventing acne due to the zinc oxide it contains. A little pricey, but a bottle lasts me at least a month.
Hope this helps

I love this @shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free Protector SPF 42 For Face! It's Water Resistant (40 minutes), not greasy and acts as a skin perfector. Can be worn alone and wears well under makeup! I wish it came in a bigger bottle! Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector SPF 42 Sunscreen 1.7 oz.

Its my first facial sunscreen that I've used religiously. I don't hate it, i homestly think its a good facial sunscreen, especially for every day but in my opinion its very basic and nothing is making me love it. I'll probably try a different brand once I run out.
Great but not the best

Used to loved this sunscreen but felt too watery when trying to apply after a while. After some hours, there was some visible residues on face and would flake off
Great protection and oil free

I love the sheerness of this. It feels as if I don't have anything on. And it does not make my skin oily.
best face sunscreen

Struggled for a while to find a sunscreen that worked for my sensitive skin. This sunscreen is perfect soo lightweight and absorbs immediately

The long SPF journey seems to come to the end for me.
Finally I found the product that matches all my criteria in terms of the price, quality and safety.
I have a combination type of skin with acne and freckles. I almost finished one bottle of it and will purchase again for sure.
It is lightweight and easy to apply with no white cast or greasy feeling left behind, which makes it perfect for daily use on my face.
The only thing that upsets me is that this lotion quickly runs out.

I thought I would love this since I live in an urban, sunny environment and this checked all those boxes. Putting this on though, was a huge hassle as its so liquidy it runs right through your fingers. It doesnt blend out at all, and goes on so white it will completely change your complexion. While I dont doubt it protects well, way too expensive for the disappointment it was
gabriellav15 from undisclosed
Overall a really good sunscreen that goes well under makeup and doesnt feel oily since the formula is oil-free. If you have oily skin I would highly recommend it but beware of a potential with cast with darker skin tones.
Look no further this sunscreen works!

Wonderful under makeup. I've been using this sunblock for years. I've tried others and I've always come back to Urban Environment. Disappears on skin and never a breakout. Try this and you'll be hooked.

This sunblock is the best for the face. Love the consistency.
