Fasio Airy Shield UV Screen SPF 50+ Review

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!

This is a more traditional “milky” SPF that has a watery, runny formula which absorbs fairly easily and doesn’t leave a white cast to my face. The formula leaves behind a semi-matte finish which feels smooth and velvety to the touch. It has a dropper style application which allows product to be easily dispensed and applied.

The bottle is fairly small and runs around $9-$10 USD within the Japanese market but can be found online for about $15.

I personally like it so much because it wears strong when I am running around in the heat. I find it doesn’t make me oily or greasy and you can literally feel the shield it creates on your face that allows your skin to breath but blocks out harmful sun rays.

Granted, I’m not much of a fan of milky SPF products in general as I prefer a more moisturizing formula but this absorbs in a snap and my skin is always the same shade going outside the house as it is coming in so it’s definitely protecting from not only harmful UV rays but also preventing my skin from darkening.

A friend of mine who lives in Japan purchased this for me however it’s easily found online.

What are your favorite SPF products?

    I heard Japanese make really good SPF products because they are obsess of whitening themselves and staying white. I haven’t really tried one though. Currently I used Diana Stalder Sunblock Cream/Gel to protect me from the harmful rays of the sun. What I like about it is unlike ordinary sunscreens, it uses formula that combines a patented sun protection complex, which maintains protection over time against the sun’s harmful rays, with natural soy proteins and antioxidants to help shield your skin from environmental damage. So far I don’t have any complains about it.

    Muse you know where online I can find this? Ebay, Imomoko and Sasa don’t seem to carry it :/

    My very first makeup was from Fasio! My friend brought me to the department store and convinced me to buy their mascara, since she swore by it. XD In hindsight, it was meh.

    I swear by VMV Hypoallergenics’ Armada Face Cover! It’s pricy, but it does the job; doesn’t melt off my face in the Manila heat, and it isn’t sticky. I’ve almost run out though, so I’m going to try Mentholatum’s sunscreen next. I’ve heard it’s really good! ๐Ÿ™‚
