Call it easy summer skincare. Call it sunscreen for guys who hate sunscreen. All I know is that Shiseido's new Clear Stick UV Protector is pretty much perfect. It takes classic sun burn concerns and mixes in some modern Japanese ingenuity for a sunblock that's effective, invisible and extremely easy to use. Like a compact stick of deodorant, this twist up-bar is specially engineered for summer conditions: it actually gets stronger when it comes in contact with water or sweat.
The SPF 50 goes on instantly clear (meaning no sloppy white steaks or over application). Plus, the stick allows you to apply to precise and sometimes hard to reach locations (the back of your neck, ears and ankles). The formula is safe for both your face and body, and since it's Shiseido, the handy stick is also packed with skin-quenching ingredients like licorice extract, known to soothe. Not to mention, this little thing is easy to pocket or toss into a bag without worries of leakage.
