I am fairly obsessed with suncare, and finding the holy grail high protection in a light formula that’s easy to reapply, (especially for my son) feels like my task of a lifetime. I have been checking out the brand new Shiseido Suncare 2018 Collection which uses WetForce technology and promises to strengthen the UV protective veil of sunscreen when it comes into contact with water or perspiration. Genius! Here’s what you need to know!
I have always heard amazing things about the suncare offering from Shiseido and I have to say, the texture and feel of the both the products I have been testing are next level. They are completely invisible, ultra light and both offer very high protection in very water resistant formulas. It’s basically the pale person’s dream. And they smell amazing.

I have the Clear Stick UV Protector and the Expert Sun Aging Protection Lotion Plus SPF 50 to show you.
Shiseido Suncare 2018 Clear Stick UV Protector 50+ WetForce
This is a genius clear stick that means reapplying sunscreen is the easiest thing ever. It’s a simple any-time any-place texture that can even go over makeup.
The stick has a highly water resistant formula, which is also resistant to sweat and sebum. Using Shiseido’s genius WetForce technology, it reacts to sweat and water to strengthen the UV Protective Veil. It has an Ionic Mineral Sensor that detects minerals in water and sweat (positive ions) and bonds them with negative ions, to form an extremely water repellent protective layer.
The formula also uses something called SuperVeil-UV 360 which minimises the possibility of uneven application and gives a uniform coverage over uneven texture and depressions on the skin.
It also has skincare ingredients to combat wrinkles and uneven skintone, plus a rather nifty fragrance which claims to actually make sweat smell good! I think the jury will have to be out on that one!
Shiseido Suncare 2018 Expert Sun Aging Protection Lotion Plus SPF 50
This is an extremely light lotion that’s completely invisible on the skin. It has a transparent finish with no white physical sunscreen agents. The same WetForce technology the stick has binds the protection to the skin for an extremely water repellent veil.
Like the stick, it uses SuperVeil-UV 360 to guaranteed protection from every angle and also uses anti-aging skincare ingredients to work on wrinkles and uneven tone and also moisturises and makes a great base for foundation. Perfect!
It has a super light yet luxurious texture that turns instantly transparent when blended into the skin. It takes no work at all. I have the SPF 50 formula but there is also an SPF 30 variant.
