Do you know that UVA ages your skin and UVB burns your skin? They are practically skin terrorists!
This latest product I’m going to introduce you employs a new water capsule technology that promises to shield your delicate skin from the sun with its double UV block properties while hydrating and softening the skin.
Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF 50+ PA+++, a highly touted sunscreen in Japan, contains Aqua Micro Capsules which has UV absorbing ingredients to provide strong, long-lasting double block yet with light and cool “water-like” fresh feeling. Non-sticky and non-greasy, it spreads and absorbs by the skin easily. Formulated with Hyaluronic Acid and Mix Citrus Essence as moisturising ingredients to keep skin hydrated. Non sticky and non greasy, it is so comfortable for everyday use!
Directions: It is suitable for face and body application. Apply evenly on face after moisturizer and before applying makeup. For best results, reapply after excessive perspiration. As with all sunscreens, cleanse thoroughly using a makeup remover.
Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Alcohol, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Lauryl Methacrylate/Sodium Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate, Dimethicone, Acrylates/C10-30 Acrylate Crosspolymer, Glyceryl Stearate, Agar, Polyvinyl Alcohol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Xylitol, Butylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Hydroxide, Potassium Hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol, Disodium EDTA, BHT, Fragrance (Parfum).
Here’s what I think about it.
As the name suggests, the product possesses a watery and mousse-like texture that glides well on skin. It does not leave a white sheen or greasy film on the skin.
When applied, the Biore UV Watery Essence dissipates into my skin fast leaving a flawless matte and smooth finish. This phenomenon seems to be consistent even when I’m perspiring.
I applied the product on my limbs before my jog this morning. After the jog, I touched my hands and legs and realized my skin remained moist and clean even after much perspiration. It did not produce the greasy and sticky residue like many other sunscreens did. 😀
I also like that it does not contain pore-clogging ingredients such as zinc oxide or titanium oxide which are absolutely detrimental to my acne-prone skin. I did not have a pimple attack after application. 🙂
The fragrance is not prominent in this product in that it did not have the typical ‘sunscreen smell’ unlike my Sunplay lotions. I could not smell the oils or the lemon in the ingredients either. This is great news because you don’t wanna go out smelling like the swimming pool, do you?
For its long-lasting sun protection and weightless finish, 3.5 Honeyz crowns!
