The first thing I do when I arrive in Asia is go Shu Uemura shopping. I try all the colors at the counter, a tradition I truly miss at home in the States. Even though I can shop online in the US, certain products are still unavailable, and I have no idea why. Like the UV Armor, a SPF 50 sunscreen that gives protection like no other. Their enigmatic Sun-Protector cream goes on light and leaves a silky finish – no greasy look and no thick-sunscreen feel.
I especially love such a lightweight texture in this swampy, humid Taiwan weather. Between the outside steam and my own sweat, the last thing I aim to do is to add an unwanted layer to my face. This feels like nothing and offers a much-needed barrier from this piercing heat. It comes in waterproof or not, and also in SPF 30.
Luckily For you, Strawberry Net carries it and will ship to the United States. For $32.50.
