For me, sunscreen is an important part of my skincare regime and I have been using La Roche Posay Anthelios SPF 50 and The Face Shop Natural Sunscreen for very long time now, so I decided to switch to a different sunscreen, and that’s when I picked up this Shiseido Future Solution LX Universal Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50+.
What it is: An ultra-luxurious day protector with a light creamy texture that helps defend skin against environmental aggressors while reducing the signs of aging. This formula defends against UV rays, air pollutants, dryness, and photo-environmental radicals to help prevent the appearance of dark spots, roughness, and wrinkles. Its rich texture has a comfortable application that leaves skin feeling smooth and hydrated, and can also be used as a primer before foundation application for a flawless complexion and maximum protection. The result is skin that appears healthy and beautiful now and over time. This product can be used as a powerful daily protector or as a primer and is water resistant for 40 minutes. It is dermatologist tested and can be used on face or body.
My Experience with Shiseido Future Solution LX Universal Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50+:
Shiseido Future Solution LX sunscreen comes housed in a squeezy tube with a holographic twist-up cap. The tube contains 50ml product which is a pretty decent amount for a sunscreen. The name of the brand is printed on the front of the tube.
I had heard only good things about Shiseido Solution LX and have been eyeing it for a while now. It has been 15 days since I have been using this sunscreen and I must say there is nothing I don’t like about this product. The consistency of this sunscreen is a cream texture which sinks into the skin instantly after application without leaving a white cast on the face.
This feels ultra lightweight on the skin, it actually doesn’t feel like you have applied anything on your face. It doesn’t exactly mattify my skin, but it does add a natural glow to the skin.
This Shiseido Future Solution LX sunscreen has a mild, powdery scent to it which fades away after a few minutes of application. It is also water resistant. I have been using this in the morning since the last 15 days now and it hasn’t caused any breakouts on my skin which is otherwise a major concern with a majority of sunscreens out there.
It doesn’t clog pores and does keep skin hydrated for whole day. Overall, I am impressed with this sunscreen as it prevents tanning and sunburns and I would be repurchasing it in the future definitely.
