Shiseido WetForce BB VoxBox ~ Review + Swatches

When it comes to skincare, Shiseido is a brand that I love. So when Influenster sent me the WetForce BB VoxBox complimentary for testing purposes, I knew that I was in for a treat!

"Sunscreen and makeup in one. This ingenious hybrid keeps skin looking undeniably gorgeous and protected, even while you have fun under the sun playing sports and working out. Now in a transfer-resistant BB tinted sunscreen, discover the ultimate sun protection formula with innovative WetForce technology. The super-lightweight formula blends easily into skin and stays put, delivering comfortable natural coverage that camouflages uneven skin texture and tone so you can look your best while you sweat." /source

I received Shiseido Sports BB Broad Spectrum SPF 50 + WetForce in the medium shade and it's a perfect match for me - at my palest. This product is only available in 3 shades (light, medium and dark) so it may be hard to find a suitable match if you're anything deeper than light-medium. The poor shade selection is a shame because this product is actually amazing!

Shiseido Sports BB Broad Spectrum SPF 50 + WetForce is tinted enough to cover redness and minor imperfections while still looking natural. It dries to a satin-matte finish in seconds and it has a powdery feel when dry. There's no white cast and it doesn't feel heavy. It lasts all day (the BB coverage; not the sun protection) but it can be tricky to remove. An oil based cleanser works best and luckily enough, one was included in this VoxBox!

"Shiseido Ultimate Cleansing Oil is a specially designed purifying formula quickly and easily removes long-wearing foundation and water-resistant, high-SPF sunscreens. It rinses away quickly leaving no sensation of stickiness." /source

This cleansing oil melts off heavy facial makeup and sunscreen with ease. It emulsifies with water and rinses off clean. I found it worked extremely well at removing my base makeup and sunscreen, however it didn't perform too well on my mascara.

I also received a sample of Shiseido's Urban Environment UV Protection Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 40 For Face/Body.

"This daily shield utilizes advanced sun care technology to protect against dryness, oxidative pollutants, and UVA/UVB rays that cause photo-aging, spots, and wrinkles. " /source

This product was a huge miss for me. Although it feels light on the skin and has a matte, powdery feeling finish that I love, it gives off a major white cast. It doesn't matter how well I rub it in, the white cast is quite noticeable.

Out of the three Shiseido products I was sent, I would definitely purchase Sports BB Broad Spectrum SPF 50 + WetForce and the Ultimate Cleansing Oil.
