Shiseido Pureness Matifying Moisturizer Oil-Free ($32)

A lightweight moisturizer, with oil-absorbing powder, that promotes a smooth, shine-free finish.

This pH-balanced, texture-perfecting essential helps reduce surface shine as it provides exceptional hydration to skin. It protects the skin’s natural moisture balance with the Shiseido-exclusive Hydro-Balancing Complex. This mattifying must-have is ideal for oily, blemish-prone, and combination skin.

My Thoughts:

This is my go-to facial moisturizer when my face gets oily which is basically starting from late spring to early fall. It’s a light weight slightly watery facial moisturizer that does a great job of keeping my face from getting super oily shiny. It doesn’t keep my face completely matte all day, but it does cut down on my blotting to once a day in the afternoon. I normally have to blot at least twice throughout the day if I don’t use the Shiseido Matifying Moisturizer. The moisturizer doesn’t clog my pores or cause any breakouts. It feels very light and gets absorbed quickly leaving my face feeling so soft and smooth. My face feels so soft I can’t stop touching it! The one thing I don’t like about the moisturizer is the smell. I noticed an alcohol smell, but it quickly fades away within a minute. The price is high, but 1-2 pumps is all you need. A bottle has lasted me nearly a year with daily use.

Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion SPF 55 Review

shiseido-ultimate-sun-protection-lotion-spf-55Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion SPF 55 ($38)  This smooth and highly nourishing sunscreen lotion for the face and body provides ultimate protection from UVA and  UVB reays with SPF 55. With superior antioxidant and retexturizing agent, it also protects against sun-induced premature signs of aging. Dual Sun Protection System: Combines external defense against UVA and UVB rays and internal strength by hydrating, retexturizing, and preventing oxidation and cell damage. Lotion glides on evenly without any stickiness or white residue. Perspiration-resistant and sandproof. PABA-free.

My Thoughts:

I use this as a face sunblock (even though it’s for face and body). It dries relatively quick compared to other sunblocks, and doesn’t leave your face greasy, oily. It’s super light and matte. The most important thing about this sunblock, besides the SPF 55, it never caused any breakouts. It is expensive, but I rather bite the bullet than have to deal with greasy, oily sunblock.
