Shigaisen Yohou Make Keep UV Base 4+ is a tinted pore-concealing Japanese makeup base that keeps skin matte and smooth all day.
The additive-free makeup base features the newly added PA++++ rating to better protect skin against sunspots and other UV damages. It contains a blend of 10 “good-for-skin” ingredients including arbutin, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C derivative.
It absorbs excess sebum to keep makeup looking smooth and fresh all day. The makeup base has a smooth, weightless texture that can be applied generously with no heaviness or stickiness. Its light beige tint and soft-focus effect hide pores and blur imperfections while brightening and evening skin tone.

I just got this and tried it, it seems to be pretty good but I wouldn’t say it’s the mattest of all the bases that I’ve tried. What do you think about the ingredients? Do you think it provides good protection? Would love to see your review on it. Thanks!
That’s good to know. I haven’t tried it yet. In your experience, which makeup base is the mattest?
I think its ingredients are great, assuming you don’t have sensitive or problem-prone skin. It can certainly provide UV protection equivalent of a sunscreen if you can apply the full amount. I personally would love to see a “BB” version (i.e. coverage in line with Japanese BB creams) of this since I haven’t found a need for a proper makeup base.
The mattest that I’ve tried (I haven’t tried too many) is Shu Uemura Mousse. It’s too drying for me I can’t really wear it. Also these two (is it okay for external link?) I think are more matte than the Shigaisen Yoho one, but all of these have lower UV protection.
I use base mainly to get rid of the shine from my SS. I use either Lancome UV Expert or Allie Mineral and both leave me a little shiny. If I use a little base first then I find my foundation (powder foundation) can look nicer, less shiny, and last longer.
Thank you for the feedback on ingredients. I was debating between this and the Shiseido Anessa. I haven’t tried the Anessa though so I wonder how the sun protection and finish compare to this.
Thanks for maintaining this website really love it!
Anessa Face Sunscreen BB is a proper sunscreen (not a makeup base with SPF or BB cream) so I would say that its protection is better overall. Its quit tenacious (as you would expect Anessa s/s to be) and it gives skin a bit of glow (i.e. not matte).
Hi! Can I check where can I get this product? It looks good with the ingredients! thanks! 🙂
Do you know if make up remover is needed to take this product off?
Yes, since this is a makeup item ( a makeup base with UV protection added, not a sunscreen).
