I bought this Shiseido Tinted Moisture Protection SPF 20 last summer and am loving it. I was recommended by the sales associate at the counter while I was doing my normal purchase of skincare products. The sales associate recommended by saying that it would give some protection against the bright sun in the summer!
It is a tinted moisturiser that claims to give the skin a hint of colour and natural glow. It also claims to lock in moisture and protect the skin from external harmful effects such as UV rays to prevent signs of premature aging.
It is the lighter type of lotion manufactured by Shiseido. It is not of the cream type so it won't feel that heavy in summer. I have used it through the last summer and did not find my pore to be blocked by this moisturiser.
It is available in two colours: Light and Medium and you can pick the one that suits your skin colour best.
Using the product
This tinted moisturiser is no different from your daily moisturiser. I normally use it after using the cleanser and the softener. What makes it different is that you have to ensure that it is evenly applied on your whole face as it is a tinted one.
As said above, it is a tinted moisturiser so it provides a certain degree of coverage. However, you can never expect that you can use it to replace your foundation because the coverage is very light. I found that the moisturiser can help to make the skin tone a bit more even but that's it. If you want better coverage, go for a foundation or use a concealer.
Having said that, I would say that this is something I love to use when I do not want to put on my make up. It is so easy to apply and does give a even skintone which is something I am looking for on a leisure day!
While it is not a foundation, I would still recommend using a make up remover at night. Afterall, the uv protection ingredient is not easy to be washed away merely by using your daily cleanser. So I would recommend using a make up remover to ensure that your face is thoroughly cleaned!
