Guide to the New Japanese Sunscreen Releases of 2019

Guide to the New Japanese Sunscreen Releases of 2019

It’s the 3rd season of the Japanese Sunscreen Comparison Chart. This is a handy at-a-glance guide to the top 20 most popular new SPF50+ PA++++ Japanese sunscreen releases of 2019 (based on site’s view counts). It’s by no means a conclusive list — you can find all the sunscreens in the ‘Sun’ category.

Looking for older releases? Last year’s chart looked at 20 sunscreens that were released in 2018. 2017’s looked at the most popular sunscreens on the site overall that year. Please note that numerous products featured there have already been discontinued or replaced due to the relatively short product life cycle in Japan.

MILK TYPE

Ultra-fluid, milk-like texture — characterised by their long-wearing, stay-put formula. Remember to shake well before use.

Please, could you explan whats is mean “oil resistant”? How does it possible that Biore Athlizm is not oil resistant? That give a impression biore perfect milk is more suitable for outdoor activities than this one.
