Is it necessary to apply a layer of moisturizer underneath this Shiseido UV protector?
I've been told to always layer moisturizer underneath everything, especially sunscreen as if its the vital part of my make up ritual. Is it completely necessary for this product? Will it cause future malfunction to my skin if I don't? Doesn't it have a moisturizing property that takes care of the skin already?

Yes, add moisturizer under this and have the tinted sunscreen be the top layer. In summer you might be able to wear it alone, but I have dry skin and wouldn't recommend attempting it without moisturizer underneath. Remember it's a tinted sunscreen, not a tinted moisturizer.

Yes, you must. It is not a moisturizer but it won't dry you out like some sunscreen.
You could probably just use this if you find that it's moisturizing enough. The idea is to make sure your skin is hydrated enough and doesn't feel dry or tight. Many moisturizers provide benefits to your skin that something which is just a sunscreen will not; like anti-aging, promoting cell turnover, plumping wrinkles, lightening dark spots, etc. But if your skin is happy and well hydrated with only this product, then of course you can just use that.
