I was referred to this sunscreen in an article on malassezia (fungal acne) over at the Simple Skincare Science blog. I like to follow a FA friendly routine as much as possible because I have rosacea and seborrheic dermatitis issues. Anyway this is an elegant creamy sunscreen with a beautiful velvet finish. It's a pleasure to put on and for those who wear makeup, you'll find it works well as a base. It manages to moisturise the skin without leaving me oily and this effect seems to last a long time. I've had no irritation or breakouts from it. The downsides are that I need to order this online and tubes are quite small (like most Japanese sunscreens).

Please note that I believe this product has now been renamed to Shiseido Senka Mineral Water UV Essence.
