I recently received the Shiseido WetForce BB, Ultimate Cleansing Oil and Urban Environment UV protection cream to review. I don’t have a lot of experience using Shiseido, and I only recently started using it when I did a review of the Ibuki Smart Filtering Smoother Serum and the Ulitmate Power Infusing Concentrate a few weeks ago. I was so impressed by these two products and immediacy jumped on the opportunity to try the new BB Cream.
I had no idea what to expect with this BB Cream and started using it without any research, and I liked the element of surprise. First of all, I was pleasantly surprised about the amount of coverage this BB cream gives. Most BB creams that I have tried in the past give no to very little coverage, and I use them mostly as a primer or on my no makeup days. The Shiseido Wet Force BB Cream provides the same amount of coverage as a light weight foundation and blends into your skin like a dream leaving a soft and pearly finish. When I apply the BB cream, I don’t need to use any foundation afterwards just a little concealer, and I am ready to go. As a test, I wore my BB cream to the gym and did a vigorous workout and noticed that my skin still looked amazing afterwards and I didn’t have to apply any more makeup. This BB cream has become by go-to face product for the summer, and I love that it has SPF 50.

I have used cleansing oils in the past and loved how soft they made my skin feel afterwards. The first time I used this oil was at night after I removed my makeup and I thought it was just ok. I used it with my Clarisonic and didn’t like that there was no foam or lather. I tend to like face cleaners with more substance. The next day I decided to use the cleansing oil as a makeup remover, and I loved the results. I applied it to a cotton pad and rubbed it on my lips to remove my lipstick and then my eyeliner. I was having a hard time finding a product that would remove my long wear lipstick, and this cleansing oil has solved all of my makeup removing problems.
“A rinse-off, oil-based cleanser specially formulated for quick, easy removal of higher SPF formulas that are water resistant. Will cleanse longer-lasting foundations swiftly and effectively. Feels light and silky, while protecting skin’s natural moisture as it works.”
I don’t normally use sunscreen on my face because most of my other beauty products have sunscreen built right in. In the past, I always found that sunscreens made my face look greasy and they clogged my pores. This is why I started to look for other products designed specifically for the face that had sunscreen built right in. I used this sunscreen under my foundation as a primer and was surprised about how easy it blended into my skin without leaving any sticky residue. I also love how lightweight and fast absorbing it is and a little goes a long way.
“A feather-light daily sunscreen with UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum Protection. Provides exceptional hydration while protecting against external aggressors such as UV rays, dryness and air pollution for beautiful, healthy-looking skin. Potent formula effectively protects skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays that cause photo-aging. Easily removes with daily cleanser.”
