Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen SPF 50 Review

Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen SPF 50 001

Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen SPF 50 a necessary evil in my SPF life. If I can, I will avoid milky-type SPF products as I simply don’t like that formula however I will admit some of them I do embrace because they offer superior protection.

That’s the case with Anessa.

Anessa is a popular range of SPF products and is sub-brand of Shiseido which is available in Japan and a few select Asian countries. It’s terribly crummy that the only Shiseido we really experience here in the US is what we found at our high end counter as Shiseido offers a very WIDE array of various products in Asian countries.

Let’s take a look at Anessa and see what it’s such a popular SPF product in Asia.

Jill Stuart Prism Carat Eye Shadow Base Duo for Fall 2011 003

It’s been a little bit of time since my last Jill Stuart purchase. I find the collections and colors a bit repetitive however I was intrigued by their new Prism Carat Eye Shadow & Base Duo that released with their Fall 2011 Collection. I asked my best friend, who lives in Japan, to pick up two of these out of sheer curiosity!

Let’s take a look a the promo images until these arrive in my mailbox and I can review!

Fasio Airy Shield UV Screen SPF 50+ Review

Fasio Airy Shield UV Screen SPF 50+ 001

I always get alot of questions about what my favorite SPF products are. I use several to be honest because, well, I like variety. I imagine it doesn’t do any favors for my skin but I do in fact use a few that I like and I switch on and off between them.

If I’m outside for longer periods of time one of favs would be Fasio Airy Shield UV Screen SPF 50+/PA+++. Fasio is a Japanese brand by Kose which is available within Japan and a few other Asian markets. I’m not really a huge fan of Fasio makeup as it’s always disappointing particularly the mascaras but I do enjoy this sunscreen.

Let’s take a look!

Kai Group Pallete for Liquid Foundation

Kai Group Pallete for Liquid Foundation

I hate mixing foundation and concealer on the back of my hand as it normally ends up in a mess. It ends up on my clothes, on my arm, everywhere but my face….

That’s why I love the idea of this cute little beauty tool!
