On April 21st, Shiseido's d program will be replacing their Day Protector SPF18 PA＋ and Day Care Sunscreen SPF32 PA＋＋ with the Skin Up Protector SPF23 PA＋＋ and Smoothing Sun Block SPF40 PA＋＋＋. I currently use the Day Care Sunscreen which I like quite a bit and was disappointed to hear that the product would be discontinued next month. However, I received samples of the Smoothing Sun Block, which will replace the Day Care Sunscreen, and am very pleased with the changes made. The Smoothing Sun Block, which you can use on both the face and body, lasts longer and provides more protection than the previous sunscreen. While the Day Care Screen was cream-based, the Smoothing Sun Block has a liquid base that allows for immediate absorption into the skin. It leaves no white residue though it may (subtly) brighten your skin tone. It toned down the redness in my cheeks and smoothed over some of my imperfections. It does not flake and it also does not dry out the skin. You can probably use it as a makeup primer or base. But what I like most about the Smoothing Sun Block is that it does not leave a greasy shine. It does not look like I'm wearing sunscreen and it does not feel like it, either. I will definitely purchase the Smoothing Sun Block when it comes out in April and I am so happy that Shiseido has put so much time and effort into research, listening to their customer feedback, and updating their products.
