I'm currently using (and loving) shiseido senko spf 50 daily under make up or Biore watery essence but as spring approaches I think I need to consider a spray to use over make up to top up every few hours if it's sunny. I tried a few in Boots today but they all seemed to be really greasy or left a white cast. Wondered if anyone had any Asian sunscreen spray recommendations.
I've tried the LRP and hated it (sticky and clogging but I don't really get along with the whole LRP Anthelios line) but loved the Bioderma Hydrabio one. It is really a top-up product, nothing more. Leaves a slightly matte finish which I'm okay with in the summer and feels slightly powdery but that goes away in 30 seconds. It's not a continuous mist so requires a bit of adjustment initially but it's never faltered on me.
I think you'll struggle to get a lot of feedback on the Asian versions as most Japanese sellers won't ship them overseas due to aerosol restrictions in the post which they tell you about after you've ordered the blasted thing. There's one that works with a manual pump of sorts that does get shipped from JP but it's a crappy one from what I gather.
Good info botemp I didn't like the LRP Anthelios cream as I found it chalky and gave a white cast but willing to try the spray. I'll def try the Bioderma one too based on the above. Rubbish news about shipping aerosols from Asian suppliers! Asian sunscreen feels far superior to the usual we can buy in the UK.
The LRP spray that I had wasn't sticky or clogging at all on me, just a very light mist. I dont know about other LRP sunscreens but I use the Anthelios extra light and it absorbs really quickly with no white cast. It's ideal for under make up. I've tried quite a few sunscreens now Asian and European and the LRP ultra light fluid is the best by far for me. Everyones skin is different though.
