On SS2017, Shiseido changed the formula of their major sunscreen, Anessa. I(Cherry) bought them. In previous formula of Shiseido Anessa Medicated Whitening Essene Facial UV Sunscreen (SS2016) is changed to Shiseido Anessa Medicated Whitening Essene Facial UV Sunscreen Aqua Booster now.
I wear sunscreens for almost 365 days for one year. My skin is not tough, I often get sting by sunscreens. In summary, I was satisfied by this Anessa Whitening Essence.
Before talkking about this sunscreen, I need to notify one thing. Originally I bought a big bottle of Essence UV Sunscreen Aqua Booster (AKA Anessa Silver), with a small tube of this Shiseido Anessa Medicated Whitening Essene Facial UV Sunscreen Aqua Booster. Indeed it is self-reclled by Shiseido.
In this year of 2017, they sold a limited set with Essence UV Sunscreen Aqua Booster and this small tube of Shiseido Anessa Medicated Whitening Essene Facial UV Sunscreen Aqua Booster.
Important notification of self recall by Shiseido:
Shiseido had announced self-recall for some of the sunscreens. And this Shiseido Anessa Medicated Whitening Essene Facial UV Sunscreen Aqua Booster is some of them. The reason is they had released some lots are not enough smooth texture. According to them it is not the recall for the safety using nor weak sunscreen effect.
We always tracking who bought this sunscreen, and asked the customers who bought from us to check. And we found — it is only me who bought that lot! Seems the earliest few lots were problem.
Anyway, here is formula.
On arm, as Shiseido Anessa Perfect Facial UV Sunscreen Aqua Booster (AKA Anessa Silver Tube), in this formula, it is more yellow color.
Just remind you SS2016 below.
When I blend it on my arm.
It does not change my skin torn, but a little bit shining due to the sunscreen.
This “essence” is for face, and I often use this as primer, I do not request primers to cover my face problems. I need guardian from sunshine! If you use primers what cover your pores, change your skin torn or something, apply this before your primers.
There are some good points. 1st is the very , there are no sting, even my skin was too sensitive. 2nd is not too oily or too dry, for my skin. They are so good points aren’t they?
The difference between this Silver Tube and Gold Tube
Anessa Medicated Whitening Essene Facial UV Sunscreen Aqua Booster is “Medicated”, why? It is including m-Tranexamic acid as a brightening. Hope it works!
Shiseido says this sunscreen is waterproof.
Let me spray a water (Avenne Water).
You may see it is a little bit white.
Seems its waterproof is working. I just remind when I was a student, my school pool was outdoor pool (it is common in Japan, and we can swim only in Summer), we wear sunscreens, of course. Our body and face changed white because of water. But in this sunscreen, there are no worry.
Indeed this is not super waterproof, as Anessa Gold Tube. If you prefer those, I recommend to buy that one.
I am so satisfied with this Shiseido Anessa Medicated Whitening Essene Facial UV Sunscreen Aqua Booster, formula of 2017. 🙂 The price is so affordable, no sting, and good waterproof.
