Sofina Day Beauty Protect is for daily use which combines the functions of moisturizer and sunscreen so you can use it right after toning. Meanwhile, no special cleanser is needed for removing this sunscreen.
Sofina Perfect UV Lucent is discontinued and the replacement is Sofina Perfect UV White SPF50. This sunscreen is in lightweight texture which will not leave a greasy or white layer on the skin after application. However, you need a separate moisturizer prior to using this sunscreen and a special cleanser, such as cleansing oil, is required for removing this sun protector.Best Regards,Katherine Chan
Yes, I will recommend Sofina Beaute Day Protector which is used as moisturizer and sunscreen so no day cream is needed prior to using this product. If you want to use a stronger, waterproof sun care product, you can also consider Sofina Perfect UV Sunscreen as shown below:
Here is the full list of Perfect UV Sunscreen:Zinc Oxide (13.87%), Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate (4%), Cyclomethicone, Water, Dimethicone, Alcohol, Glycerin, Talc, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Lauryl Methacrylate/Glycol Dimethacrylate, Crosspolymer, Polysilicone-9, Titanium Dioxide, PEG-12 DIMEHICONE, METHICONE, PEG-3 DIMETHICONE, CHAMOMILE ET, SQUALANE, Dimethicone/Methicone Copolymer, Aluminium, Hydroxide, Silica, Hydrated Silica, BHTHaving said that, if you want to have an effective whitening serum, I will suggest SK-II, Shiseido HAKU or Sofina White Essence. These products are popular in Asia and our customers rave about the effectiveness of these serums on improving dark spots and freckles. Thanks!
They are all physical sunscreen as the main ingredient contained in the products is Zinc Oxide which only reflects UVA/UVB so it helps to minimize the possibility of skin allergy.
For babycare sunscreen from Shiseido, the main ingredient is also Zinc Oxide, which is considered as inorganic ingredient but the formula is designed for fragile skin, and the texture is light so it is popular among our customers, especially for those who has sensitive skin and want to have a light sun care product for daily use.
Sofina Perfect UV White Protect is waterproof and sweat resistant so you need a cleansing oil or makeup remover to clean it thoroughly. Sofina Beaute Day Protector is a 2-in-1 moisturizer and sunscreen so you can use it after cleansing and toning. Meanwhile, no makeup remover is needed to clean this 2-in-1 day moisturizer.
Both sunscreen are good for oily skin (choose Type I - Fresh for Sofina Beaute Day Protector) but if you have sensitive skin, you might want to use other sun care product, such as Isehan SuhadaFit UV Baby Milk or Isehan Sunkiller Kid's UV Milk SPF38 as listed below:
Basically, a makeup remover (cleansing oil or cleansing gel) is able to remove sunscreen. To achieve the best result, dry your hand and face before using the cleansing gel. The sunscreen and makeup will be dissolved while massaging. Then, wet your hand and massage your face in circular motion. Use lukewarm water to rinse off the cleanser completely. A daily face cleanser is also recommended to remove dirt and excess sebum after a makeup remover is used. Try Kose Medicated Junkisui Acne Spot for acne problem and here is my suggestion:
Day: 1) Sofina Jenne Milky Cleanser (Daily Foam Cleanser - 100ml); 2) Sofina Jenne Lotion (I - Fresh) (Refreshing Toner for oily skin - 140ml); 3) Kose Medicated Junkisui Acne Spot Serum (for t-zone and acne); 4) Sofina Jenne Day Protector SPF24+ PA+++ (I - Fresh - oily skin) (30g) or Sofina Jenne Day Protector SPF50+ PA+++ (for all skin types) (30ml)
Sofina Jenne Day Protector is a moisturizer with sunscreen function so no special cleanser is needed to remove this product. If you use Sofina Perfect UV White Sunscreen, a makeup remover is recommended as this sunscreen is waterproof. Night: 1) Sofina Beaute Makeup Cleansing Gel (150g) (for all skin) 2) Use (1) to (3) products as stated above; 3) Sofina Jenne Jelly Moisturizer (Nighttime Moisturizer - 50g)
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 mentionFirst, 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 foundationFinally Id like to know the difference between the Anessa Sparkle and the Anessa Pearly?I'll be very thankful if you can help meps: 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:http://www.beautykat.com/advanced_search_result.php?osCsid=umm5ka4vsbdkj1516i8s51bfm0&keywords=shi-an-foundation&x=0&y=0There 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)
