Inside The Beauty Edit[ed] Box: Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Milk

Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Milk

Anessa could just be the most technologically advanced sunscreen you’ll encounter. There are two ways sunscreens protect from the sun: through SPF, the measure by which they protect from UVB rays that cause sunburn, and through PA, the measure by which they protect from the more harmful, skin damaging rays called UVA. The Anessa Perfect UV Skincare Milk has the ideal SPF 50 and the highest UVA protection index possible at PA++++. But the brand, being under Shiseido with over 100 years of UV research and experience in making sunscreen, knows that that’s not enough. 

Super lightweight, non-sticky, and sets well under makeup, the application of this Skincare Milk isn’t something you’d usually expect from sunscreens with high SPF and PA ratings. Its Aqua and Thermo Booster Technologies are perhaps its most impressive features, which enhance the product’s UV protection even more when it comes in contact with water, sweat, or heat. And while it’s super waterproof (proven by an 80-minute bathing test) and even friction/sand/ wipe-resistant, it easily comes off when washed with soap.

It also features 50% skincare ingredients, from super hyaluronic acid and collagen to green tea leaf flower extract and yellow flower extract, among others. As for its sunscreens, it uses a mix of both physical (zinc oxide and titanium dioxide) and chemical filters for fool-proof UV protection. If you’re looking for a reliable, truly protecting sunscreen for heading out or swimming, this is the answer. 

Expert Tip: Shake the bottle well before using. Dot the cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin and spread evenly before applying a second layer. Apply on the neck as well in upward strokes.
