Summer has put its hot sunny foot onto Japan. Eastern women take up arms to fight pigmentation and loss of collagen. I’m not inclined to take on gloves and visors – instead, I’ll tell you about creamy sunscreens I use.

Kao Biore UV Perfect Milk SPF 50+

This is ideal for a face – all because the milk has matting effect and it’s very nice to my mixed type skin. No need to cover this milk with powder; I just put it on in the morning and the look is good until evening.

The texture is very light; and there’s a hint of perfume that doesn’t disturb. The milk immediately soaks in – just blends into the skin, matting it along the way. I applied foundation on top of it a couple of times – no problems; but usually I prefer just milk. One more advantage: the skin looks well-cared of. Blackheads are smoothed away; but this milk won’t get over serious problems such as pouches under eyes, or rash.

Now to the sun protection. I try to stay out of too much sun in the summer; however, the skin still takes a dose of UV with this milk. But no burning and no excess pigmentation.

Bear in mind that this milk may leave stains on your clothes.

The milk is of the make-up cosmetics kind; so I remove it by hydrophilic oil. Probably it’s not really necessary but I’m used to it.

Volume: 40 ml.

Rohto Skin Aqua UV Super Moisture Gel SPF 50+

I use this gel when I’m in a rush; to quickly put something on me and run.

The texture is light and creamy. There’s a distinct alcoholic smell. The gel soaks in quickly and doesn’t reveal itself after. No feeling of film on the skin, not to say about oily feeling. Good sun protection. May dry the skin a bit; this is a disadvantage.

Volume: 80 ml

Price: ~9$

Rohto Skin Aqua SaraFit UV Sara-sara Essence SPF50+

Universal protection for daily use.

This one has a moisturising effect. Usually takes some time to soak in. I use it on all parts of the body except the face; on the face, it feels glossy and not belonging. It’s excellent for arms and other dry areas of skin, though.

The moisturising and fresh feeling is a great advantage of this product. But it, too, can leave stains on darker clothes; so use it with care.
