Review: Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Mousse

I have been using the new Biore Sunblock UV Aqua Rich Watery Mousse SPF50 PA+++ for quite some time now.
Some of you may prefer to use SPF30 sunblock while others like me prefer to use SPF50 sunblock. Reason being? My bus stop is always a million miles away from my house and I usually have to walk under the sun for 15 to 20 mins. I also do not reapply my sunblock hence SPF50 is a safe bet for me. Anything higher is too much for daily use.



This Biore sunblock comes in a tube for easy dispensing. But then again, I find the tube too small!



It has a creamy texture when you first apply but magically, this sunblock blends into my skin pretty well!
Feedback from a  friend who also uses this is that she finds it leaves a white cast. It didn’t happen to me though but I feel it does brightens up my skintone.



This product is enriched with Hyaluronic Acid and Citrus Essence to hydrate and soften skin.
I think it does what it claims!
I like the dewy and hydrated look when I applied the sunblock on. For those looking for matte finish, this may not be the one for you.

Before using this sunblock, I’d also apply my Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. Both of them work well together and my sebum production is also reduced. My skin starts to feel oily about 4 hours later.
As my skin produce more sebum when it is dehydrated (note:  dehydrated skin not dry skin), I try to use products that are moisturizing enough yet not too much for my normal/combi skin.



The downside of this product is that it contains Alcohol and Dimenthicone (a type of silicone) which can be comodogenic.
So far, I do not experience outbreaks from using this product but I felt there were tiny little clogged pores on my skin. I am not sure what causes it but I suspect it could be this sunblock.
I am still using it because I love the texture and the moisturizing effect but I’m not too sure if I’d repurchase.

Tip: Always apply your sunblock in patting motion. (That’s what the Adonis beautician told me!)
