Best Pick: Parasola Essence In UV Cut Spray EX

Parasola Essence In UV Cut Spray EX, a Japanese sunscreen review

Here is a lovely addition to my ever-growing collection of user-friendly sunscreens: the Parasola Essence In UV Cut Spray EX from Naris Up. One of the brilliant things about this aerosol sunscreens is that it can be sprayed directly on face over makeup (as well as on body and hair) — it is ideal for touch-ups during the day.

The mist is micro-fine and it dries to a non-sticky, non-greasy, invisible finish in seconds, so you don’t get the spread-ability that a gel or a milk would afford you — you’ll still want to use normal sunscreen underneath to ensure your skin is fully protected if you’re going to be in direct sun or if you’ve photosensitive skin. Its formula is quite impressive — SPF50+ PA++++ protection that is water, sweat, and sebum-resistant, and it contains a blend of moisturising ingredients to prevent skin from drying out during the day.

If you don’t need the power of a tenacious sunscreen but still want to give your easy-on, easy-off sunscreen a boost during the day, this is a handy sunscreen to have around — close your eyes (and hold your breath to avoid breathing in the stuff) and evenly spritz over face and you’re good to go. It doesn’t disturb makeup or gives an unnatural ‘sunscreen’ sheen as long as you don’t overspray. (Over-saturating the skin will give better sun protection, but the face can look quite shiny.) The spray is also perfect for hard-to-reach spots, necks and arms as it doesn’t transfer or stain clothes.

This one may be hard to get a hold of for some since it’s an aerosol can (which is prohibited from airmail services) but if you are able to get your hands on it, it’s definitely worth a try.

You can find Parasola Essence In UV Cut Spray EX at drugstores, supermarkets, cosmetics stores, and specialty department stores across Japan.

I’m planning to use this to be able to reapply sunscreen over my makeup throughout the day. How do you apply this to make full use of the SPF (or at least get as much protection as possible)? With liquid sunscreens it’s easy to measure out, but it’s hard to tell how much you are using with spray on sunscreens. Like how saturated should your face be? Or how many seconds should it take to spray it all over your face to ensure full coverage?

Do you think it would be possible to get it to the US from Rakuten?

Hi. Just want to say thank you for recommending this. A friend brought back two cans for me from Hong Kong and I use it for touchups throughout the day. It is so much easier than adding on mineral sunscreen powder. I was amazed at how well it sits on top of my already made up face. Thanks again!

SaSa online has it. If you look under the Naris Up brand and meticulously look through all the products, it’s there. Good luck! =)
