SEKKISEI is a Japanese drugstore skin care line from KOSÉ that whitens skin using oriental herbal extracts for “skin that is transparent like snow”.

SEKKISEI Sun Protect Essence Gel is a daily use Japanese sunscreen gel enriched with oriental plant extracts. It replaces SEKKISEI Sun Protect Gel SPF50 PA+++ that was released in 2013.

It features a micro-encapsulated gel formula that delivers superior UV protection without stickiness even when reapplied generously. It also contains Sekkisei’s signature blend of oriental plant extracts to moisturise and brighten skin.

The water-fresh sunscreen gel applies like a refreshing lotion (Japanese toner), and it gives skin cool, silky smooth sensation.

  • For face and body.
  • Resistant to water, sweat, and sebum.
  • Double as a makeup base.
  • Removable with a face wash.

The 2015 renewed formula has the same smooth finish, but it feel more refreshing and hydrating on the skin.

My sister purchased this 2015 version from a Kose counter in Singapore. I noticed from your site that the shelf life of unopened sunscreen is mostly 3 years. Does it mean that my sister’s sunscreen is going to expire this year? Or is there a possibility that this 2015 version can be manufactured in 2016 or 2017?

Dear Raye,
I have typical Asian skin, which is pigment-prone, and my type is dry-mature (33years old). I have been living in JP for 3 years. Based on my personal experience, a big fan of this gel, I don’t think you should use it. Of course if you can have a sample, give it a try..
I haved used some of other French, Korean, American and JP UV products (either organic, natural, physical..)
