Product Description:

With SPF 50+/PA+++, Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Mousse provides strong and long-lasting double protection against UVA and UVB rays. It contains Aqua Micro Capsules which release ‘water-like’ moisture, leaving skin feeling light, cool, healthy and hydrated. Its texture is non-sticky and non-greasy while it spreads easily and is quickly absorbed by skin. It works as a smooth makeup base to prepare skin for the makeup regimen.

Texture & Scent:

This sunblock is actually a creamy mousse! Texture wise it reminds me of a more fluid version of the MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation! :D I love how this spreads easily over my skin and didn't leave a sticky shiny film behind! :D

This is how i look wearing this:

Nice and matte! :D

This sunblock has a mild citrusy scent which i'm ok with. 


This sunblock comes in a practical squeeze tube with a twist off cap, so it travels really well!

The dispensing hole's size is just right too:

And this is how it looks like brand new in pack! :D

Time Test:
Though it doesn't explicitly mentions that this is long wearing, i do feel sufficiently protected for about 6 hours! :)

Price & Availability:
This sunblock is priced at RM32.90 (approx. US$8.89). I got mine for about RM20 in Thailand on sale, but if memory serves me correctly it's retailing at 290 Baht each. This sunblock is found in most Watsons / Guardian outlets! :)

This is perfect under makeup since it's non-oily and non-sticky!! :D

My $0.02:

I think some of you know by now that my skin hates alcohol! But recently i have been testing out a few products containing this no-no ingredient for my skin, and it has been so good thus far. Until i started using this product! >.<

Within days, it clogged my pores so badly, and gave me bumps and small pimples all over my face! >.< A yucky picture to show you what am i talking about:

It's really a shame. I love how matte and non-sticky this product is, and the price doesn't hurt either. Sadly, like its Milky sister, it didn't work for me. So needless to say i won't be repurchasing this one!

Its Easter weekend! For those who are commemorating this event, i wish all of you a blessed time remembering our Saviour. For the rest, have a wonderful weekend! :D
