Hello every one!

Today I’m gonna share with you a newly launched product from YSL, it’s the UV Shield High Protection UV Skincare. I believe this product was launched on March 2013. This product is readily available in YSL boutique in ION Orchard and Tangs Beauty Hall Singapore.

With a scorching hot sun in this Sunny Singapore, UV protection is a need for my everyday use. I have tried several brands UV protection but when it’s YSL who comes out with this product, it gets me so excited! To know more about this product, keep on reading! 😉

What makes this product so special? According to YSL , here are the secrets of triple shields:

  • AN ANTI-POLLUTION BARRIER: enriched with Shea butter extract with detoxi- fying properties to protect skin against everyday urban aggressions by capturing floating metal particles.
  • OPTIMAL SPF50 pA++++ UV PROTECTION: a filtration system containing a blend of patented filters for high protection against UVB rays and boosted UVA protection (pA++++) to help effectively combat premature skin-aging and the formation of sun-induced brown spots.
  • ANTI FREE RADICAL PROTECTION: antioxidant vitamin E combined with tyrosi- nase-inhibiting peony extract protects the skin against free radicals generated by external aggressions. 

The Packaging:

YSL UV Shield has a very simple packaging. There’s nothing fancy or luxurious. The tube is a squeezable with a handy size. You don’t need to worry that you’ll squeeze too much product as the end of the tube is really small so it’s unlikely that you’ll squeeze too much products.






The Texture & Smell:

YSL UV Shield looks white when squeezed out from the tube. However after spreading it evenly onto your face, it would look very natural. There’s no white sheen like the traditional UV protection has. The texture of this product feels light and non sticky at all. I personally love the smell of this products a lot 🙂 I mist admit that it smells pretty strong but the scents is very nice. I am not really good at describing scents, but it has a refreshing flowery smell which makes me feel refreshed everytime I apply my makeup every morning before work.




YSL UV shield is recommended to be used before your foundation or bb cream. I use this UV shield frequently especially if my foundation only gives me less than SPF 30++ protection. The sun in Singapore is very strong so I must make sure that my skin is well protected. YSL UV shield does not affect the lasting power of my foundation, so you don’t need to worry that your skin will get oily or your foundation will fades after using this as a base make up.

Final Thought:

Overall YSL Top Secret UV Shield provides a very nice texture and smell. It’s a nice UV protection to be worn as a base under your foundation to give you that extra protection you need especially when the sun is strong.

    I have been using my Chanel version and am at my third bottle. I love the YSL scent, it’s kinda fruity and flowery as well. This looks very interesting, if I finish my Chanel one,I’ll probably try this.

  2. Sounds pretty good! I usually just use regular sun cream under my make-up.

    Hey Meryl, this sounds promising! I like the lack of white cast part, and it’s great to have such a high SPF especially in Singapore! I’m not too sure we get this here, or if we will get this here at all. I’m pretty sure it’s something that will be available in Taiwan though. I might have to check it out!

  4. It looks invisible on your hand! Do you think it might cause flashback in photos?

    I am now intrigued! This might be nice for summer. Just out of curiosity, did you apply the required 1/4 tsp for your face? Did it sink in nicely applying more?

      Hi Icaria,
      Thanks for dropping by 🙂
      No applied lesser than that. So far it sinks in nicely into my skin but I have not tried applying more so I can’t comment on that 🙂
