in Biore, Sunscreen

When the Biore UV AQUA Rich Watery Jelly was first released in Malaysia, I ran out to get myself a bottle. I’ve been reading a number of positive reviews and was rather curious to see how it would work. I used it on my neck and arms at that time, and liked how watery and cooling it felt. However, I started noticing some rashes appearing on my neck a few days later and initially thought it was caused by the sunscreen because many of my allergies are triggered by sun protection products.

It was only a bit later that I discovered the rashes were caused by a food allergy reaction but by that time, I had already given away the bottle and moved on to other sunscreens. Yes, I am that quick.

I was running out of my regular body sunblock and came across the Biore Watery Jelly at a local drugstore. I then thought of trying it out again because I did like the cooling sensation and lightweight texture.

The Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Jelly is a gel-emulsion type of sunscreen that is meant for the face and body. It contains a blend of hyaluronic acid and Mix Citrus Essence to help skin retain moisture and feel more hydrated. It also acts as a moisturiser, makeup primer and sunscreen in one. It has a mild citrus scent that fades away quickly.

It is very light and watery and I really enjoy applying this sunscreen on my arms and neck. It does not leave a white cast and is pretty much invisible once rubbed in. I think the protection offered is quite enough for office workers or students who don’t spend long hours under the sun. If you plan to participate in any outdoor activities, you’d best reapply the sunscreen to benefit from it’s full protection. It also washes off easily with regular soaps or cleansers.

Overall, I am glad I revisited and repurchased this sunscreen. After having use it for a couple of months without any adverse reaction, I can safely say that it works for me and would recommend it to those who are not sensitive to the ingredients listed below. The Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Jelly SPF30 PA+++ retails at RM32 and is available in most drugstores nationwide.

I have only used this sunscreen on my body, neck and decolletage so I’m not sure what it is like on my face.

I bought this last week when I ran out of my body sunscreen. Liking it so far as it's light and cooling ( thanks or no thanks to the alcohol in the sunscreen) on the arms and legs. Dunno about its efficacy thOugh as I'm still skeptical about the amount of alcohol in the sunscreen.

Yes, just a bit too quick though ;-) I quite like this milky-gel-mousse texture, it's light and refreshing and so nice in our tropical weather. I think I've tried the green one before and it's all right too.

I've tried it too but it didn't work well on my face. I tend to be sensitive to chemical sunscreens but my body is mostly fine with anything (thankfully).

That is a pretty good sunscreen and especially if you're not sensitive to chemical types. Biore does make a wonderful range of sun protection products and all at relatively affordable prices too.
