As far as I know from the list of all ingredients, it is oil free. It is not listed as oil free on the bottle though. It contains glycerin that gives it moisturizing properties.

It is not oil-free as far as I know but Shiseido did just come out with an Oil-free version with SPF 42 which is also very nice as well.

You can feel this on your face right after application, but this one does dry down once it sinks in. This is a thicker cream like product, I use the Extra Smooth Lotion SPF 38 from the same line under my makeup daily, and its more lightweight than this product is, its watery, so it absorbs right away. But, this product is good, it just takes a minute of two to sink into your skin.

Yes, but SLIGHTLY less water in it, so the tiniest bit "goopier." I prefer the texture of this one to the 55, but I do use both and love both. Also, while it is water-resistant, it's not quite as strong, so it doesn't leave as much of a residue on your face and absorbs a little more quickly.

Question
Is this a thick cream?
I'm not suppose to use thick creams on my face. If this is a thinner cream, I'll be able to use it.

No, this is a lightweight, non-greasy cream. Based on my experience (and I have fair, sensitive and combination skin), I'd recommend it for all skin types. You might want to try a sample before buying the full-size product. Hope this helps.

I have very sensitive skin (the reason why I got this product is because I just recently found out that I'm allergic to run!) and it has been working just fine for me!

Not all products are for sentitive skin. Some people might even sensitive from SPF ingredients. They are also sold in retailer counter which is in most shopping malls.

The main difference between the two is the Urban Environment one is more designed to protect against pollution and other things that cause harmful oxidation to skin which result in wrinkles, dull skin tone and dark spots.

This product contains more moisturizer instead of just sunscreen, and it can be washed with regular face wash instead of having to use an oil based cleanser like the other product needs, to get all the sunscreen out.

It might be able to if you were more on the oily side but I would still recommend using a moisturizer that's suited for your skin type then add this on top

While this sunscreen contains active ingredients that protect against dryness, oxidative pollutants, and UVA/UVB rays that cause photo-aging, spots, and wrinkles, I recommend using a moisturizer as well. This isn't as hydrating to be used alone. I hope that answered your question!

You apply this after your moisturizer and eye cream as the last step in your skincare routine before your makeup. It can also be used as a makeup base as well
