Shiseido Perfect UV Protector SPF 50+ : Review


Hi everyone!

Today I’m reviewing the Shiseido Wetforce UV Perfect Protector which is high protection, very water-resistant sunscreen from the Japanese brand, Shiseido.

Price : Rs 2300 for 50 ml

Shiseido Wetforce UV Perfect Protector SPF 50+ : Review


The Shiseido Wetforce UV Perfect Protector comes in a compact blue and orange packaging. The bottle fits into the palm of the hand and has a very unique & intersting shape. The cap unscrews to reveal a fine nozzle that controls the flow of the sunscreen. In terms of consistency, its a very watery product and you need to be a little careful while pouring it out. The bottle needs to be shaken well before use to make sure all the immiscible layers are well mixed when you dispense the sunscreen. I absolutely love the consistency and feel of this product. It reminds of one of my favorite foundations – the Shiseido Sheer & Perfect Foundation (which I used up completely, a rare feat for me!). Its very thin & lightweight on the skin  and doesn’t give any greasiness or white cast. In fact, you can hardly tell you have anything on your skin when you use this. It blends down completely with no visible color and a barely there satin finish. Its not a dry matte and but its not dewy either. Anyone who dislikes the tacky, heavy texture of most sunscreens needs to give this a try!

Because it has a high percentage of dimethicone (a silicone) in it, it works great as a makeup base. One of the interesting things about this formula is that its supposed to get more water repellant as it interacts with perspiration or moisture. Unfortunately there’s no way to visibly see this effect so we’ll have to take their word for it! This sunscreen is very water-resistant and very high protection (SPF 50+ and PA++++) so its great for people who are very sensitive to the sun.


Overall, its an excellent sunscreen that hits all the right spots for me. Its very light weight on the skin, doesn’t make my skin greasy or dry, has high protection and works well under makeup. The only downside is that it is quite expensive but I do see myself splurging on this as it has the best texture and consistency out of all sunscreens I’ve ever used!

Rating : 4.75/5

    Looks like something for me, I'm too sensitive to sun nd can't go out without at least spf40. Neautrogena spf50 suits me well, but it gives a white residue nd very greasy. Where can I find this one?

    Its so difficult to find a light base sunscreen, so definitely its worth trying.

    Looks really great to me

  4. February 20, 2016 / 8:41 pm

    I like that it works as a makeup base 🙂

    I am trying out the Anessa sunscreen from Shiseido right now. Shiseido do fantastic sunscreens! This one looks interesting as well!

  9. February 21, 2016 / 3:27 pm

    This is very expensive. But I’m impressed that it doesn’t leave behind any greasiness or white cast.

  10. February 21, 2016 / 6:54 pm

    I so want to try it out now ! I would surely check the ingredients first though.

  12. February 22, 2016 / 11:57 am

    Sounds like an amazing product!

  13. February 22, 2016 / 1:11 pm

    sounds amazing but is expensive. My all-time-favorite sunscreen is L’Oreal Paris UV Perfect Aqua Essence <3

    Shiseido products are great but I love the Lotus 3 in 1 sunscreen always!

  15. February 22, 2016 / 3:36 pm

    sounds great but price :-/ Ouch hurts pocket! I love my Lotus 3 in 1 Matte look sunscreen 🙂

  16. February 22, 2016 / 11:20 pm

    It is soo good even if it is expensive but I wish it did not had silicone base in it…

  17. February 23, 2016 / 1:01 am

    Oh wow this works so amazingly. I cant think of any other water resistant sunscreen lotion.

    is it better than the lotus matte 3 in 1 sunscreen, or fares equally well for oily skin??

    Trust you completely Ankita:) This summer I am going for it.
    Cute packaging

    I usually like Shiseido products, but I don’t think I’ve tried their sunscreens. I use Hawaiian Tropic (it smells amazing, is lightweight, no white cast). But I like that this has high SPF and other pros! I’d try this one, too.
