Wearing sunscreen every day is non-negotiable, and so it makes sense to find one that’s easy to use and quick to apply. Shiseido’s Clear Suncare Stick SPPF50+ is just that and then some. Shiseido has made sun protection fool-proof and, dare I say it, enjoyable! Read on to uncover why I’m tipping this SPF stick to be everyone’s summer staple…
The Most Important Thing About This Sunscreen Is…
I can’t choose just one; there are two things you need to know. Firstly, it’s the easiest sunscreen you’ll ever use – glide and go on the face and body, whether that’s alone or under/over makeup! Plus, it’s small but mighty; the tech inside this pocket-size stick deserves recognition. It features SynchroShield technology, which – in short – makes your protection against the sun even stronger when it comes into contact with water, sweat or heat. And because the sun is very drying to the skin, its formula provides an emollient effect to keep skin hydrated.
If that’s not enough, the sunscreen also contains the botanical ingredient complex Profense CEL, which helps prevent UV damage that causes wrinkles and uneven skin tone. It even has anti-pollution benefits to keep pollutants from adhering to and damaging the skin.
You Will Love This If…
If you haven’t found a sunscreen you love yet or find most sunscreens hard/a hassle to use, this is the one for you. You’ll also love it if you lead a busy lifestyle and need a formula that’s quick to apply and easy to take on the go.
It’s genius! I’ve never encountered a sunscreen that protects you more, the wetter or hotter it is! Shiseido’s SynchroShield technology is ahead of the curve. That tech paired with an invisible formula, plus anti-ageing and anti-pollution benefits, makes this SPF stick a must-have everyday staple.
The stick is a solid gel that melts upon contact with the skin, which absorbs quickly (no need to rub it in).
The finish has a slight sheen, but it’s by no means shiny, sticky or greasy.
How Should You Apply It?
One word: easily! This twist-up sunscreen stick glides onto your face and body with ease, and its clear, invisible formula absorbs so quickly that you needn’t rub it in, either.
How Often Do You Need To Reapply?
Like with any sun protection, it’s best to re-apply frequently to maintain an optimal defence against UV rays. We’d recommended re-applying after every two hours, especially after swimming, sweating or towel-drying.
What’s Special About The Stick?
It’s incredibly compact; the handy stick is small enough to throw in any of your bags without taking up valuable space.
