Imagine this product as food and then picture me licking the plate clean. That’s how I imagined myself when I gobbled it down to the very last gram.
Here’s a photo taken days before:
My name is Kate and I recently read your review of the Shiseido Sun Protection Stick Foundation. I love how informative it was and it made me want to purchase it even more. I have very acne prone skin and I’m told that stick foundations are not a good choice because of the occlusive ingredients that make stick foundation well, a stick. As opposed to liquid foundations with less waxes etc. What do you think about this?
Also, would this make a good everyday foundation or more like a foundation to wear to the beach? What products work well under this? Setting powder necessary?
One last question, how do you remove this foundation completely at the end of the day? It is very water resistant so I imagine nothing but an oil cleanser will completely remove it. Do you know if the Shiseido oil cleanser will work? What other ones would you recommend?
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
Thank you so much for reading my review. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to reply to your email sooner.
I consider my acne situation as mild to moderate and I use topical acne medication. I didn’t break out with the Shiseido sun stick but that might be because I use tretinoin.
To be honest, I only have 1 liquid foundation. 3 of the 4 I have are all cream compact or stick type. I don’t like looking overly matte.
Shiseido is quite different from all other sticks I have though. Coz it has a tiny bit of face primer feel to it. I don’t put anything underneath. Sometimes I top it with ben nye banana luxury powder. I get a lot of compliments with that combo. Also, this foundation is very sheer. It’s a tinted sun stick at best. But for some reason it does great in diffusing my large pores. If you have post acne hyperpigmentation, I don’t recommend this. It will not do anything. You might also get disappointed with the color selection. They only have 2 shades.
I remove it with bifesta, similar to that bio-something micellar water famous in France. Then I wash my face with an ordinary cleanser.
Hope this helps.
Let me know if there’s anything else :-)
