I wanted to compile a rather small list of the best Japanese SPF and Sunscreens that I’ve personally used and loved for many a fine year. I’ve used a lot of Japanese sunscreens over the years but three featured in this post are ones I come to back to again and again and again because I love how well they perform, how great they look and feel under makeup, and how fabulous the formula is.

Unfortunately, the US market hasn’t quite caught up to the Japanese one when it comes to creating lightweight, easy to absorb SPF formulas.

Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream For Face

When I run out of my typical Japanese gel SPF I turn to Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream For Face. When possible I try to order five tubes of Kanebo Allie Extra UV Gel Mineral Moist SPF 50 PA+++ so I won’t be without it. Recently, I got down to my last tube before reordering so I had to grab up my age old Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream For Face.
