The must-buy sunblock! Word-of-mouth Toplists in Japan
Summer is just around the corner! The season to wear sunblock has come.
The ultraviolet rays are a threat to your skin, causing wrinkes, freckles and dullness. Today, we will tell you the Top 5 items on the most popular word-to-mouth website! Use this list to shop in Japan!
No.5 ParaDo Buzz Guard
This ParaDo sunblock is famous for being sold at Seven Eleven convenience stores. They’re only 650 yen, and you can block the sun by SPF50+ and PA++++.
This contains eucalyptus herbs, so they protect you from insects too!
They are in a gel form so that it doesn’t get sticky, and you can wash them off with normal face wash. Find them at Seven Eleven!
No.4: ANESSA Perfect UV Sunscreen A+N
Shinseido’s ANESSA practically represents sunscreen in general in Japan. They are 1500 yen. What we must mention is that they are waterproof and long-lasting, and highly protective. Even if they are the same SPF50+ and PA++++, people say that the ANESSA series have better quality than other sunblock, and many athletes and outdoor lovers use them too.
But because they work very well, some people feel that the sunscreen is covering up all pores on your skin, unable for the skin to breathe.
Many have them at home to use at times when you don’t want to get sunburnt at all, especially when you go to the beach or play sports.
No.3: cle de peau beaute Creme Protection UV
Next is a very luxurious sunblock. They are 9000 yen for 50g… But it is said that they are worth that price, and has been getting famous on magazines and the internet.
The reason for this sensation is that they help with anti-aging. Many normal sunblock stimulates the skin and makes it dry, especially for people in their thirties and forties. But this amazing sunblock not only protects the skin from sunburn, but gives moisture as well.
If you want to decide which sunblock you can truly trust, this one’s worth a try.
No.2: Biore Sarasara UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel
Biore’s gel type sunblock. Biore is a huge brand from Kao, a cosmetic company often compared with Shiseido. Most Japanese people know and trust this brand.
What everyone says after using this sunblock is that they are extremely light and smooth.
You almost forget that you are wearing sunblock and they blend into your skin easily.
No.1 Biore Sarasara UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence
The No.1 and No.2 sunblock are both from Biore. It is safe to say they are the best choices.
The difference from No.2 is that this is in a cream texture. There are skin whitening and lightening-up type BB creams, so they can act as a good makeup base too.
The amazing thing about this sunblock is that people have been repeatedly using this. The cheap price (only about 600 yen) and its quality safe to put on for daily use was probably the key to this long selling product.
How was the article?
You might think that all sunblock are the same and that as long as the SPF level is high it'll be ok. But you have to be careful on that. Even if it has the same SPF, the effects on the skin, moisture and texture are all different.
Choose the best sunblock for your skin and keep your skin shining this summer!
