Here comes another skincare product that I recently used. Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF 50+ PA++++ is one of the latest products by Biore. I redeemed the sample online months ago during their sample giveaway campaign. I brought it along with me on my UK and Japan trip.
UK weather was really dry, temperature changes was huge which could wreck havoc on one’s skin. My skin was quite dry there. In japan too, the air was dry there.
The good thing with this sunscreen is that it contains Royal Jelly, Hyaluronic Acid and Mix Citrus Essence as moisturizing ingredients. Great makeup base as well. No stickiness. The texture is between gel and water. It was easily absorbed by my skin and felt silky smooth after applying it.
However, when I came back to Malaysia, I noticed that it was not as good as when I’m using it in the UK and Japan. Likely due to the high humidity here, I felt a bit sticky on my face after application. However, if you stay in air-conditioning environment a lot especially in the office, it will be a good daily sunscreen to use.
The formulation is claimed to be highly resistant towards sweat and water. I didn’t sweat and didn’t go into water throughout the usage of this sunscreen hahaha… So I can’t say much about it. I will just believe the claim as it is ;p
Don’t underestimate the damage of UV ray can do to your skin. If you think that you stay indoor all day and you don’t need sunscreen, this is not applicable in this era. Why? You are facing your computer and your phone all the time, the light damage is as damaging as going under the sun. You will notice your face is developing brown spots and having premature aging signs over time. Also, if your office is in high rise building and/or you are surrounded by glass such as window, the UV ray can wreck havoc on you too.
So… Boys and girls… Sunscreen is very important to at least reduce the chances of developing too much pigmentation and some unwanted skin problems.
Will I repurchase? I don’t think so but I do recommend those needing moisture during the day to use it to protect your skin from harmful UV rays while keeping your skin moisture. It is suitable for both face and body. I will just go back to the good old Biore UV Perfect Face Milk.
