Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream Plus SPF 50 Review & Swatches

Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream Plus SPF 50 was released in Japan this Spring and recently we got got the launch of Shiseido Urban Environment Oil–Free UV Protector SPF 42 PA+++ here in the US.

Interesting that the formulas appear quite similar but offer different levels of protection.

I got mine from Japan however, I swatched the version we have available here in the states and I’ll say both have great formulas that seem pretty much identical outside the fact we have an SPF 42 and Japan offers the SPF 50 option. The version here in the US is more of a milky liquid or what I refer to as a traditional SPF formula versus the creamier version of the Japanese release.

Let’s take a look!

L’Oreal Sublime Sun Advanced Sunscreen SPF 50+ Review

You might have stopped at your local drugstore and been privy to the new L’Oreal Sublime Sun Collection. There are a variety of products available in the collection including a new Liquid Silk Sunshield.

I’m quite happy with my Asian brand SPF but I’m always curious to try out US ones to see if anything sticks out as great but sadly, they almost always fail.

Perhaps the new L’Oreal Sublime Sun Advanced Sunscreen SPF 50+ might just change my mind?
