Reivew | shiseido urban environment uv protector extra mild – All time favorite sunscreen

Hi everyone this is my very first product review ❤

My first review will be on this Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protecor Extra Mild SPF 30 PA +++ Water Resistant. Phew! What a long name!


So I am a girl who never leave the house without a proper sunscreen and I have tested many different sunscreens and many brands in my years of beauty journey!

In the past two years, I have only been using Shiseido sunscreens. Before purchasing this one, I have been using another Shiseido one –Multi-Defense UV Protector SPF 50 PA +++ Water Resistent, which I have repurchased 3 times already! If you have normal to oily skin and is looking for a lightweight but still very effective sunscreen. This one might be a better options for you.

The reason why I am switching to this product is because I am heading to Europe this X’mas (Yeah! *grin*) and the weather there is very dry, unlike here in Hong Kong, so I decided to get something a little thicker and moisturising. I have also been given a small sample of it before, along with my last purchase of the Shiseido Multi-Defense UV Protector, as a set.

When using it under humid weather (in Hong Kong), upon application it definitely feels a lot thicker and I would say for combination skin, you can actually skip the moisturiser. Just apply toner, serum, eye cream and this Urban Environment UV Protector Extra Mild straight on. You will get the moisturizing effect that you need and your sunscreen all in one. If you’re on the dry side then you can just apply it after your day cream.

The reason I love Shiseido’s sunscreen is that, they are so effective and they never clog your pores. In terms of pricing they are not exactly cheap but they are also not that expensive. A small bottle would last me the whole summer which is fair enough for me.

The Multi-Defense UV Protector is $280 30ml, and the Urban Environment UV Protection Cream is $350 50ml.

I always feel that those typical day cream with SPF 15 is definitely not enough, so I always prefer a separate sunblock to ensure I have the coverage needed.
