This is the newest addition to Shu Uemura’s famously good UV Under Base range. I don’t have a massive amount of info about this, but I have actually tried it and it surpassed my expectations. I do know it contains Gluconic Acid Zinc and Salicylic Acid Salt to aid exfoliation for smooth skin, while controlling sebum, to help achieve an optical pore-less effect.

As you can see it gives good foam! Shu Uemura Underbases are hugely popular, this much I know, but up until now, I’ve always been a bit meh about them.. couldn’t quite get the excitement. As a primer, and with SPF35, it’s SO lightweight and yet, somehow does seem to diminish the look of pores. It just gives your skin a slightly smoother and more refined look. But it comes into its own when you add a foundation or BB (or even a CC!) over the top because that’s when the perfecting becomes obvious. Without radically changing anything, it just gives your skin a ‘me-but-better’ look – smoother somehow.

I’ll definitely use it again – every day probably!

You can find it in Harrods next week for £29 or on-line – it’s not an exclusive so you may be able to track it down elsewhere as well. It comes in two shades; pink and beige.
