In this year of 2020, Kanebo changed the formula of some Allie, their famous sunscreen. Allie Extra UV Facial Gel is changed to Allie Extra UV Facial Gel N.
I bought new Allie, what we are able to deal.
The Extra UV Facial Gel N is the second rightest product, it is the 40g small size (we deal 90g).
I know some of the stores are still selling the previous formula. Please pay attention when you buy.
How design changed?
In the package of 2020, even you do not read Japanese, please check them.
UV 3.0 is the formula of 2020. (UV 2.0 is the formula of 2019, the “Highlight Gel”, which is still kept in 2020.)
In the end of 2019, I bought Extra UV Gel for my own use. (I could not find the small sizes, nor big size of UV Facial Gel.) Please see the pictures below and what Hazelnuts of Philippines bought in 2018.
Here is the Extra UV Facial Gel what Hazelnuts of Philippines bought in 2018.
The formula of 2020 (the leftest of the bottles, the letters of “EXTRA UV FACIAL GEL” is slightly more deep than the formula of 2018.
Also, please check the back design, it is Japanese, but you can see the difference. The formula of 2020, there are ジェル N (meaning “Gel N”), but in the formula of 2018, there is ジェル (meaning “Gel”). Please be careful.
Comparing Allie Extra UV Facial Gel N & Allie Extra UV Gel N
Guess you may want to know the difference between two gel sunscreens in Allie. The quantity is different (Facial Gel N is fewer).
The nozzle design is different, and I felt Extra UV Gel N is easy to take much quantity.
Here you are! The quantity in Extra UV Gel N is much more than Extra UV Facial Gel N!!
The texture is different. Extra UV Gel N is lighter than Extra UV Facial Gel N. Facial Gel is more creamy. When I apply both on my cheeks, Facial Gel N side is kept being moisturised. If you have oily skin, I feel you may like Extra UV Gel N on your face.
Both are slightly changed my skin tone different. I know some people says it is “tone up”, but I say “whiting unnaturally”.
Extra UV Gel N is super waterproof, and Extra UV Facial Gel N is waterproof. But I think Allie Extra UV Facial Gel N is QUITE good waterproof. I suggest Extra UV Facial Gel N for those who has drier skin, but looking for a waterproof sunscreen as a foundation primer.
When you have dry skin in your body, this Extra UV Facial Gel N is a try worth. However it is not meaning it is good for Atopic, there are none has Atopic in our team.

Review by Hazelnuts (formula of 2018)
Note: As I have mentioned above, Kanebo changed the formula in 2020. Cherry did not used the formula of 2018, but I could not find out the diferrent between the Extra UV Gel and Extra UV Gel N, I guess there are not quite big difference between the Extra UV Facial Gel and Extra UV Facial Gel N. I keep the review by Hazelnuts of Philippines.
This is a post about another sunscreen from Kanebo, the Allie Extra UV Facial Gel. I previously tried the UV Extra BB gel, which was very good, so I have high expectations on this one.
I am quite used to milky, watery textures for my sunscreen products, because of the humid weather in my country, so I am quite curious with other sunscreen formulas.
As this is a facial gel, upon application it has a rather thick, watery, bouncy texture that is more moisturising. I find that when I apply this, it goes on slightly sticky/tacky on my face, and provides enough moisture that is sufficient enough for my combination skin. I use this product in the morning as my primer/moisturiser in one.
It has no scent, and it settles fairly quickly, without any white cast. It absorbs easily as well. My powder foundation glides on smoothly afterwards.
Aside from the initial application, this product feels fairly lightweight on my face. It also did not cause any breakouts. I do not feel the need to reapply even when I sweat. My makeup and sunblock stayed intact even after long hours in a humid environment.
It’s also easy to remove, with makeup remover and cleansing water. I wash my face afterwards with facial foam.
Overall I really like this one because the gel texture provides moisture and serves as a real good primer for my face. It is a good sunscreen especially when you perspire a lot. I will continue to use this because of its texture and adequate sun protection.

Note by Cherry
Hazelnuts used this sunscreen as her foundation primer. I often do that when the foundation has less sunscreen effect. I often sweat a lot, and regularly primers have less sunscreen effects, but these sunscreens for faces, even these affordable Allie or Anesssa have waterproof or water resident effect. It is important for me.
In this Allie Extra UV Facial Gel is not only Friction proof, but also waterproof 🙂
