In this year of 2018, many brands change their formulas. Kanebo Allie is one of them.
In The formula of SS2018, Allie is focusing the functions of strong waterproof and friction proof.
Waterproof is nothing to say.
What Friction Proof means?
If you often wear sunscreens on body, you had found something white is on your bags or your clothes. Yes that’s your sunscreen from your arms/ legs/ necks. In this Friction Proof is make it less these incidents. I sweat a lot in summer and it is one of the problem among late spring to early Autumn.
Do you have a problem like me? If you are, do you remember how many clothes and bags are damaged? I liked Porter by Yoshida, if you know Japanese fashion, you may know the black casual nylon/ parachute bags. It is from USD200 bags, it is far from expensive but not so much affordable for a University student. Yeah my sweat and sunscreens damaged my Porter bags!! The residue of sunscreens are not easy to removed! I had learnt makeup removers works to rid off, but washing is not nice for that bags.
I am so wise now I switched my casual daily bags for walking from Porter to LeSportsac what is selling almost the same price with Porter in Japan, but much cheaper when I buy at DFS in airports. But it get damaged by my sweat and sunscreens.
Anyway, you could understand how I was excite to hear the news of the Friction Proof. It is impossible to stop my sweat, but the biggest problem in white stain by sunscreen. Anessa is a good product with less white stain on my bags and clothes.
Allie Extra UV Gel
I jumped to Allie, and my first choice is Allie Extra UV Gel. What I bought is 40g mini tube.
This is designed for face and body, but if you read my other reviews, you may know I have sensitive skin, I do not use sunscreens for face and body for my face. It can be too strong for me. I may use this for my neck to chest. It is the late of Feb it is too early to open my arms.
Anyway let me show you.
The “Gel” is a kind of white and light cream. Allie had wired perfume or smell, in this formula, seems it is no perfume. It is a good point, but I am finding the smell of something.
The texture is light but moisture. No sticky and less oily. (I never say it is not oily, but it is less oily than other sunscreens for body like Anessa Perfect Mild Milk)
As I had mentioned I have no idea to use this product on my face, I did not feel anything irritation on my arms. But for my face, it is too risky to use.
I sprayed my Avenue Water on it, and there is a strong waterproof as you can see.
The next is Friction Proof.
I wiped by this green towel after the spray, and I could find anything stain on the towel. Probably it does less damage on my bags or clothes.
I chose Allie for this year’s sunscreen.
