Questions & Answers for Shiseido Urban Environment Tinted UV Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 43

Question
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?

Sincerely,
Beauty Noob

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.

No, it is not very moisturizing, it feels like a light foundation and when you layer it it feels like sunscreen, much similar to teh blue bottel one 50 spf for the face.

Because I am medium yellow undertoned Asian, I want to know the undertone of this BB: is it pink or yellow undertone?
I find this product quite interesting but because I cannot find much review and swatches of it, I wonder if it's suitable to my skin tone which is medium yellow undertone.

I'm Asian as well and I'm very fair. I wear shade 1, but all the shades in the range are yellow-based and very forgiving. It's very blenable and works great as a sun protectant AND as a tinted product.

If what is above (or below, I don't know where my answer will end up) is correct, there little to no PHYSICAL uv sun protection for (I think it's) UVB which are the aging sun rays. Titanium Dioxide provides verrrry, verrrry little. Zinc Oxide provides the most for UVB.

It has a chemical and physical SPF which can be irritating to a sensitive skin so I would go with one that only has physical SPF such as Zinc Oxide which is a great option for your skin type.

You can reapply after 2 hours but after 40 minutes it stops being waterproof so if you sweat or swim, tehn yes, you need to reapply. This is meant to be used in the city, not the beach.

answer 2
That means it's water resistant up to 40 minutes, so you should reapply if you've sweat a lot or have been in the water with it. Otherwise it should be good sun protection for a couple of hours before you need to reapply, if you're outside.

It runs dark so I'd go for light but medium would work also since it is sheer and we get darker in summer.

I'd get shade 2. The shades are quite forgiving and can be blended out. I'm about an NC15 and I chose shade 1.

Same as a previous product?
While I know this item is not a tinted moisturizer, last year I bought from Shiseido "THE SKINCARE" a TMProtection SPF 20 sunscreen. I don't believe you can buy that product anymore. Does the new Urban Environment ...replace the initial product I bought?

I use this as a tinted moisturizer. It is not as thin or spreadable as a true moisturizer but I just put on a thick moisturizer under it and wear it as my daily tinted coverage. It's worked well for me. I think it has great coverage that you can layer and enough tint that it hides that sunscreen look.
