Prior to receiving a couple of Biore UV products about a week ago from Vibelle Distribution, Inc., I’ve already heard a lot of positive comments about the brand. It’s supposedly the number one sunscreen brand in Japan (according to Intage SRI Research), and knowing how strict I am when it comes to sun protection, I really looked forward to trying their products.
Last Saturday was the perfect opportunity because I went on a day trip to Subic with the Cupcake. I used the Biore UV Perfect Face Milk with SPF 50 on my face, and the Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence for the rest of my body. The first thing I noticed was how lovely it smelled. Both the fragrance and the consistency are similar to Sun Play’s sunblock, which is another sunscreen brand from Japan. The consistency is very light and blends easily on the skin, making it very comfortable to wear. It doesn’t feel sticky, greasy or heavy—something that’s a little hard to find in most sunblock brands.
L-R: Perfect Face Milk and Aqua Rich Watery Essenche
The technology behind the production of the sunblock makes it sweat-proof and allows it to work as a makeup base. There are two series to choose from: Aqua Rich and Perfect Series.
The Aqua Rich products are all water-based and feels extra cool and fresh upon application. It combines Hyaluronic acid, orange, lemon, and grapefruit extracts that protect and hydrate the skin, leaving it soft and moist after use. It comes in three variants:
- Aqua Rich Watery Essence – amazingly light even with SPF 50
- Aqua Rich Watery BB 3D Effect – high SPF protection with 3D brightening effect
- Aqua Rich Whitening Effect – moisturizing, whitening and with high SPF
The Perfect Series products on the other hand, are ultra-light and non-sticky with a matte, powdery finish. This makes it ideal to use for the face, especially if you have oily skin (like me!). It also makes a great makeup base. Just like Aqua Rich, the Perfect Series has three variants:
- Perfect Bright Face Milk – makes face look brighter and smoother instantly
- Perfect Face Milk – controls oil and shine
- Perfect Milk – gives maximum protection without the heavy, sticky, icky feeling
With Biore UV’s sunblock made comfortable and easy to wear, there’s no more excuse to leave home without wearing it! I can’t wait to bring both products to the beach next weekend. Skin darkening and aging are two things I don’t have to worry about, because I know my skin will look great and be protected.
