Best Pick: NIVEA Sun Protect Plus Skin UV Cream [DISCONTINUED]

Best Pick NIVEA Sun Protect Plus Skin UV Cream

Now here’s a sunscreen that I know a lot of people have been waiting for. Kao Corporation (which, by the way, actually own Kanebo), one of Japan’s leading manufacturers on sun care products has launched a new SPF50+ PA++++ sunscreen cream for everyday use. Not your typical sunscreen cream  that leaves your skin greasy and heavy either — this one is super lightweight. It’s a bit like a smoother, more moisturising version of the popular Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence.

NIVEA Sun Protect Plus Skin UV Cream is a moisturising yet really lightweight cream formula that absorbs quickly and leaves no residue. I suppose, though, I wouldn’t have expected anything less from the company that have already brought me several of my most favourite sunscreens. It applies beautifully and sinks in easily — and after a minute or two, there’s nothing left at all to suggest that you’ve applied a high protection (PPD16+) sun cream to your skin. Apart from soft, moisturised skin! If you don’t have particularly dry skin, like me, then you might like to skip the moisturiser and apply this straight after serum.

This is a great option for people with drier skin who want a perfectly invisible finish, who dislike the dry, matte, silicone-y smooth feel that many milk and essence formulas can leave. It is also one of the very few skin care products, that had Mr. Ratzilla (a very fair Scandinavian with dry, sun-sensitive skin) hooked from the first use.

Best Pick NIVEA Sun Protect Plus Skin UV Cream code

Date: Lots rumours floating around online that the there is expiration or production date printed on Japanese sunscreens. I’ve never seen the export versions, but domestic (Japan’s) version DO NOT have dates printed anywhere (they are completely unnecessary as most get renewed every 1 to 2 years). What is printed is the production code.

The NIVEA Sun Protect Plus Skin UV Cream SPF50+ PA++++ is US$13.70+ from eBay HERE.

Is this a good sunscreen for broad spectrum UVA and UVB? It seems a lot of Japanese sunscreens don’t cover short-wave UVA (like my fav Nivea Sun Protect Water Gel). I’m currently trying to find a similar sunscreen that covers all UVA and UVB. Any recommendations?

Also I live in the UK and wondered if Nivea sun protect water gel spf 33 is suitable for winter sun?

Can you recommend some that are bigger than normal size . Also do you think the price of the sunscreen reflect how good it is. like are the ones that are 10$ and less are as good as 10+? Thank you

Hi Ratzilla, are there any sunscreens you’d recommend that might stay put around my eyes and not irritate them? I love how this sunscreen feels on my face but through the day it migrates into my eyes and irritates them horribly. I have the same experience with Biore Brightening and Alle Perfect Alpha. As long as I don’t use them near my eyes it’s fine, but I’d like to find a separate sunscreen I can use there.

Ratzilla, May I ask your advice? I have very dry skin and melasma. Heard that chemical sunscreens can cause/irritate melasma (not sure about the Japanese chemical SS though). Also allergic to alcohol. Have been using Biore Bright Face Milk but now I see it is for oily skin and has alcohol. Would you please recommend a sunscreen for my dry melasma skin for every day use (under makeup) and also one for water sports? Many thanks in advance!

Thanks for your reply! I am allergic to the alcohol in the Biore and it also really drys out my skin. I am hoping to find a good zinc based SS, PA++++, with no alcohol for dry skin but is light and stays on in humid weather. The Biore effect is nice but alcohol is too harsh.

I just got this and I really like it a lot for my combo/dry skin. It’s mosturizing but not greasy or sticky.
