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.

Is the cream texture similar to the Spf 55 cream?

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.

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.

Question
How does the Face & Body compare to the Face sunscreen in the same line (Urban Enviroment) ?
I am looking for something very matte and looks good under makeup. Not having to use a lot of product is also a plus. I am leaning towards the Face & Body because it has more product, but I would rather purchase the Face sunscreen if it works significantly better. Please & Thank you!<3

The one for face is much more liquidy. This one is pretty thick and leaves white residue on your face. Talking about the amount of sunscreen, no matter which product you're using, unless it's chemical based, while most of the effective products are combination (both physical and chemical), you supposed to use 2g of sunscreen in order to give enough protection. (That's basically the amount they used to test out the SPF and PA values)

I use the Shiseido Urban Environment spf 40 face/body for my face only. Kind of expensive to use on body. It's great on the face and yes--it doubles as a primer like it says. It is matte so the pores are less noticeable. I love it. I was looking for the same things you are. I am very happy with this purchase. I would get it.

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.

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.

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
