Review: Biore Aqua Rich UV Face Mousse SPF 50+/PA+++

nBiore Aqua Rich UV Face Mousse

Say goodbye to heavy sticky sun protection!
This silky soft UV mousse feels so light and comfortable, like water on your skin!
With Biore's breakthrough technology, the UV block ingredient is locked inside the unique Aqua Micro Capsule, providing SPF 50+/PA+++ protection while keeping your skin refreshed.

Superior Long-lasting Double UV Block
High SPF factor provides long-lasting UV protection against skin-aging UVA rays and skin-burning UVB rays.
Light & Refreshing As Water
Aqua Micro Capsule with UV Block Ingredient releases moisture to leave skin with a light and fresh feeling.
Hydrates & Softens Skin

- Mild fresh fruity fragrance
- Spreads easily and absorbs instantly
- Allergy tested

USAGE: Apply evenly on face after moisturizer and before applying makeup. For best results, reapply after excessive perspiration. Like all sunscreens, cleanse product off thoroughly using a makeup remover.

CAUTION: Keep product away from high temperature and direct sunlight. If skin irritation occurs, discontinue use. Do not stay too long in the sun even while using a sunscreen product.


My Review

This sunblock definitely lives up to its claims.
- Non-sticky and light It practically melted into water upon contact with my skin. Absorbed quickly and face felt smooth and soft, no sticky feeling at all. Unlike many other sunscreens, it doesn't look oily on the face but it actually does quite a marvelous job of moisturising ^_^
- Scent-wise, it has a slight citrusy smell which fades away quite quickly into the usual sunblock smell which I personally don't mind.
- It does not leave a white cast on my skin and I'm very pleased with this product overall.
- However, I'd recommend this for normal/combination/oily skin types as it might not be sufficiently hydrating for very dry skin types.

Texture: 10/10 the best I've used so far (In fact it's even better than Chanel's Blanc Essentiel IMO!)
Hydration: 9/10
SPF: 8/10, since it has PA+++ and provides UVA and UVB protection. However, minus 2 points because Sunplay has a sunblock with SPF 130 which can be used on the face :)
