Not worth it

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

Recently received a foil packet sample of this product from Ulta and figured the timing couldn't be better since it's summer and sunscreen is a skincare-must,...

This product claims the following:
"For everyday protection. Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 42 is an ultra-light, oil-free sun protection lotion for the face that controls excess sebum and gives skin a matte appearance while guarding against daily environmental aggressors. Promotes the natural beauty of skin by protecting against the three major causes of skin cell damage - UV rays, oxidation and over-production of sebum - for beautiful, healthy-looking skin. Dermatologist-tested and ophthalmologist-tested. Suitable for oily skin types."

My experience:
This sunscreen is ridiculously liquidy,... There's lightweight, and then there's sheer liquid. I could only get two uses out of the sample because it kept dripping everywhere. What a mess. I started to rub it into my face and I noticed that this product has a severe whitecast. It took several minutes of rubbing to get it to somewhat blend into my skin,... Not ideal for any pictures. Now, for the main test: would this sunscreen give my skin a matte appearance and control excess sebum? It did,... but only for an hour. My face became oily and greasy a lot quicker than expected and I wasn't even sweating.

Final consensus:
I didn't get sunburned, so I give this 3 stars. But it definitely didn't live up to its claims and there were a lot of overwhelming cons about this product,... Shiseido is not a brand of sunscreen I'll be picking up anytime soon.

        Very very white, even made my skin a shade lighter! (That's a con in my book) Also made my skin flake and peel a little when I tried to rub it in. It is non-greasy I'll give it that but I will NOT be buying again

          Must Have!

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

          I'm very pale, have had a hard time finding sunscreens which are very important to my skin but doesn't affect my greasy/dry acne prone face. Just after using my skin was softer feeling, my pores shrunk, and it's not affected my skin, it kind of disappears. Makeup, everything is the same as before. That's a win for me! It's been sooo hard to find something that didn't make me breakout and totally affect my whole makeup routine.

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

            Growing up I didn't wear sunscreen on my face as often as I should because I always would break out terrible afterwards. This is the only sunscreen I can wear all day without being a greasy mess at the end of the day and I'm zit free. I also had no problem when I wore this under my foundation. I have fair skin and it seemed to blend in fine for me, but I don't know if this product would leave a chalky white hue on darker skin. Finally, I have a daily sunscreen that works with my oily skin. It only took me over thirty years to find it.

            Warning excruciating pain if it gets in your eyes

            By Shelle

            from Atlanta

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

            Received a sample from an Ulta order and tried it. I got some in one of my eyes on accident and the pain is excruciating and I can't get it washed out. I get moisturizer in my eyes from time to time but nothing has been this painful.

              I like that this product is not greasy, however, I do not spend a lot of time in the sun and have been wearing this product everyday for a month. I feel like I am starting to get freckles which I never had before since using this product. I am really questioning the UV protection in this product, I have used other (greasy) face sunscreens in the past and until now I had no sun damage on my face.

              Works like a primer

              By mspeony666

              from CA

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

              Normally I hate UV protections because they all feel so greasy and heavy. But this one, it's so lightweight and it doesn't interfere with the application of makeup afterwards. It makes my skin smoother upon application and has a little bit of coverage for my redness, so it works almost like a primer for me (even though I do still apply normal primer for longevity of my makeup wear time). I loooooove this stuff and I hope they put this in 21 days of beauty again for half price.
