Urban Environment better than Sun Protection product?
How does this compare to Shiseido's other SPF product, Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion SPF 60 PA+++? I'm quite pleased with the Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion already, and wonder if it's worth switching for a higher per oz cost/lower SPF. Thanks!

on Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 42 For Face
Just as someone else said, this one is for everyday use-- for your face on a work day, weekend errands, lay around day, etc. I recommend using the thicker one in the blue packaging for outdoor activities and sports. The SPF 55 is excellent and has shielded me from sun damage as I reapply a few times -- even after hours of surfing under harsh sun.

This is much lighter feeling and more of an everyday moisturizer+sunscreen whereas the other is more of an outdoor in the sun being active, sunscreen.

i like this one better because it absorbs oil leaving a soft matte finish. it has lots of dimethicone, so my skin feels soft. the shiseido blue bottles have a very "sunscreen lotion" feel and they leave a shine on my face. The shisedio SA told me this contains ingredients to fend of environmental smoke and pollution. well, as long as it gives me a matte, sweatproof finsh, plus this stuff does not leave a white residue or white mask.
