Questions & Answers for AmorePacific Natural Protector SPF 30/PA+++

Question
Does this product leave a white film on the skin?
I am an African American female with generally oily/sensitive skin, and I need a sunscreen for the summer that will moisturize as well as protect my skin, but not break me out either.

Hi! Our skin type seems to be similar. I have oily and combination skin, and this product does not dry up nor creates grease. I like how it sinks in after a while without white film. However, this is not a perfect one, and it might feel like greasy if your moisturizer under it is greasy. Make sure you use the right moisturizer under it to create the matte finish!

This product blends extremely well and doesn't leave any residue on the skin. I also have oily, sensitive skin that's acne prone, and I haven't had any trouble with this. In fact, it's actually improved my acne (I think because it's oil free, unlike most sunscreens). When I use this, I don't need to add a moisturizer, so that also helps cut down oil production. Even though it's expensive, I'd definitely recommend this product. If you decide to try it, I hope it works!

I have used this product on many clients with a deeper skin tone, and finding that it is a very light weight texture that blends very well. This will not leave a white film or oily residue on the surface of the skin.

I think that depends on how oily/dry your skin is. For me, even products that are meant to be used as both a moisturizer/sunscreen were just too drying.

This is a moisturizer with sunscreen. If you use this cream, you do not need an additional day moisturizer. I love day moisturizers with SPF in them so that I can skip the step of adding sunblock on top.

It worked pretty well under my Makeup Forever foundation - but I started breaking out after using it for a week or two. Not sure if it was just the sunscreen or the combination of it with foundation, but once I stopped using this product my skin cleared up.

It works well on it's own with a blush or bronzer over it. You'll be really pleased at how well your skin will look on its own without foundation.

You can try a sample at Sephora if they stock it, if you want to test it out.

I've been using mine for a little over two months now and am pretty sure there is at least half left. I know some say to 'slather on the sunscreen' but I try not to use it too excessively. Just dot small amounts on the face and blend the product in making sure to get even and complete coverage. Since the spf is 30, it should be reapplied multiple times if you're in the sun for long periods of time.

I believe this would be excellent for a kid. Its pricey but its excellent quality and its made with green tea I believe. It would moisturize your face and helps with acne/breakout so I believe you should really try this. I am addicted to this and use it everyday. I also use the soap treatment bar cleanser and its extremely moisturizing as well. I think the soap would help as well. Give it a try.

Hi,

Both are excellent products. This one is more moisturizing, however while the Shiseido products have hower SPA and PA factors. You'll need to decide which factors are more important. There are also other brands that might provide everything you need and more. Sephora consultants can best help you decide. Hope this helps.

Both AmorePacific and Shiseido work wonderfully for sun protection. I have used both brands, and I truly enjoy both of them. The Shiseido products seem to be lighter in consistency. They work great as sunscreens, but they may not have enough moisture if you have very dry skin. On the other hand, AmorePacific is very creamy without being greasy. I have normal skin, and it does not make my face shiny by the afternoon. If you have very oily skin, though, you may be better off with the lighter consistency of the Shiseido products. For people with normal skin, both products work very well, but Shiseido generally offers higher SPF. Also, AmorePacific is in the natural category in case you want a more natural product.

The Shiseido face sunscreens are just sunscreens and not skincare with sunscreen. This is a skincare product with sunscreen in it so its very moisturizing for your dry skin. I used to Shisedo and I always had to use a regular lotion before the sunscreen to keep my face moisturized.

Hi ! I don't think applying this after foundation would work, since this product seems like it should be allowed to sink in...

The product itself should be the same. As for labeling, there might be a difference as the US market does not use the same rating as the Asian market.

If there is a lot number on bottle crimp or elsewhere they might be able to tell you if contacting the company. The bright side is you have approx. 2 1/2 years to use 2 oz..right? so if you lost the box just treat it like all cosmetics- when it changes color and smell, its turned. This has Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate and other preservatives so it ought to last a while.
