Shiseido HydroBB Compact for Sports Refill (RM120) , Case (RM40)
Shiseido just dropped a new tinted and transfer-resistant cushion compact that comes in 5 shades to give you the ultimate sun protection while keeping your skin looking good despite the elements. It’s both ophthalmologist- and dermatologist-tested to give you an even complexion while deliver lasting, non-comedogenic UV protection that actually makes your face appear slimmer. Find out what makes this a must-have in your travel bag:
- Quick Dry Technology: Creates a hydrophilic veil on the face that diffuses sweat across the surface of the skin to speed up drying time.* This prevents beads of sweat from dripping down the face and allows perspiration to evaporate faster without compromising sun protection and makeup wear.
- WetForce Technology: An ionic mineral sensor and a new ionic mineral powder that bind with the minerals in water or perspiration to create a powerful film that protects against UV rays — meaning the more you sweat, the stronger the protection.* Both formulas are water and deliver SPF 50+.
- Super-Veil-UV 360™ Technology: Both products create a UV-protective veil that adheres to the microscopic contours of the face so that skin stays protected from any angle.
- Contouring Powders: Infused into both breakthrough products is a specially formulated flat, white pearl that emits bright light when sun hits it straight on. Randomly coated with a black substance, the pearl also absorbs light when seen from the side. This contrast creates the illusion of a slimmer, more sculpted face minus time-consuming contouring.
- Amino Acid Derivative Complex: Gives your skin an emollient effect to maintain beautiful skin, even while playing sports.
Housed in a convenient compact perfect for pre- and post-workout touch-ups, use the sponge to spread the cooling formula evenly over the entire face. You don’t have to worry about smelling stinky too since it synchronize sweat odours with the rest of the formula’s fragrance components to produce a fresh and subtle scent.
