Swim, splash, go for a long run—because this innovative sunscreen likes being active just as much as you do.

Ideal for sensitive skin, the SuperVeil-UV 360™ technology prevents photo-aging from the sun and the lightweight consistency doesn't clog pores.

Terrible
Sampled

I used this sunscreen at the pool and was shocked when I came out of the water- I was covered in white. It is too think and It didn't absorb into my skin. It's terrible and I do not recommend.

A Don't For Deeper Skin
Sampled

I was so excited to try this product as SPF is a very BIG part of my skin and beauty routine. I have a chronic illness that makes sun exposure a little dangerous (it can cause my illness to become temporarily worse). I have tried many different SPF brands and products and was excited to try this because it combined sun protection AND anti-aging benefits. Unfortunately, this product left a white, then grey and ghostly cast on my face for a few hours after applying. I tried to wait a little longer than I usually do to let SPF set in, but I still had a visible layer. I didn't use a lot of the product so that wasn't it. It's too bad, I think aside from this I would've really LOVED the product, but not even a ton of bronzer or other face moisturizer fully helped to correct the situation. I'd say if you're a caramel shade or darker, to think twice before trying this product out.

Not for me
Sampled

I've just never been a fan of putting on sunscreen. I always noticed that in the make up that I do use there is sunscreen and so I don't see the need to add an additional step. This really didn't fit my beauty profile so it's just not feeling very personalized this month

Ok

I don't really use sunscreen especially on my face. Biased opinion. Smells good though

NOT lightweight
Sampled

The product description says this is lightweight. It is NOT. It is much thicker than anything I like to use on my face and I felt a residue all day. I do NOT recommend this product.

Thick, goopy and made my skin greasy
Sampled

I'm baffled by all of the positive reviews for this product. I had high hopes-with very fair skin, sunscreen every day is a must for me. But this one was awful. I have normal skin, so I can wear a wide variety of skin care products and make up with no issue. However, this sunscreen went on like a very thick night time moisturizer that never sunk into my skin. It left my face with a whitish cast and greasy, even after allowing 10 minutes for it to sink in. I wouldn't pay six dollars for this, much less $36.

utterly disappointing
Sampled

Liberally applied this block 20 minutes before going out in the sun for an hour long walk. My face and body were covered in chalky ash the simply would not rub in. Later that day, big surprise, a sunburn developed despite reaplication. Sadly this sample is going straight into the trash and I will be skeptical of Shiseido samples in the future.

Hard to blend
Sampled

Besides having a weird texture it was very hard to blend. If you don't mind those 2 traits then it is ok as it does work as a sunscreen.

Yuck
Sampled

I had such high hopes but it let me down. It left a nasty feeling all over my skin. It might of done what it’s meant for but that layer or lotion it left was incredibly gross.

Greasy
Sampled

I was so excited to try this product, but it was way to greasy and didn't blend well with my skin. I ended up wiping it off and using my regular sunscreen from Coola.
