Questions: Hii :)
I`ve been recently interested on asian sunscreen but since most of their websites has no english version I cant chose which one is right for me.
I was wondering if you can help me by explaining the each of the properties for the ones I mention
First, Id like to know which one is the MOST mattifying: Sofina Lucent (discontinued), Biore Perfect Face Milk, Anessa Mild Face or Anessa Perfect UV (gold one)? And which of them works better for an entire day at the beach, using it under makeup? I have very dry skin around my eyes and oily around my nose.... and since i`m wearing makeup, i need something very waterproof and long wearing because i wont put more sunscreen over my foundation
Finally Id like to know the difference between the Anessa Sparkle and the Anessa Pearly?
I'll be very thankful if you can help me
ps: I tagged this as "urgente" because it is already summer in brasil and i'm planning to go the beach soon
Answers: If you want to have a waterproof sunscreen with light and matte coverage, you can try Sofina Perfect UV White or Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV. These sun care products are popular among our customers as the products give you long lasting and waterproof protection. You can use foundation on top of the sunscreen and you won't feel heavy or greasy at all.
Meanwhile, you might want to check out Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Liquid SPF50. This is a waterproof liquid foundation with sunscreen feature which gives you dewy and middle to high coverage to your skin. I use it in Summer and I like it very much. I skip the powder as I don't want to look too cakey in the middle of the day under 100F (I live in Oklahoma so the Summer here can be like desert!) and this liquid foundation gives me just right amount of coverage and only few drops will do the work. Here is product information:
There is no difference between pearly and sparkle Anessa sunscreen. The products are imported separately from Taiwan and Japan so the packaging and the name are a bit different. That being said, both of them are made in Japan and manufactured by Shiseido.
Since I never use Biore Perfect Face Milk so I can't tell which one gives you the most matte finish. However, the above sunscreen can fulfill your requirements and you can enjoy the sun for whole day long! (You might want to re-apply it after swimming or sweating. Even though they are waterproof, they will be washed out after a while)
