Happy Tuesday! And Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Finally got a chance to organize our categories selection. We added a “Janet” and “Josie” category so if you’re interested in searching in one author’s post you can do that now 🙂 Thanks so much for reading our blog!

My friend, Binh, introduced me to Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence and my first thought was “yes! I found the perfect facial sunscreen!” I don’t like to tan and now that it’s getting warmer and the sun is out longer, I need to protect my face from the sun.

So, let’s review this product. Biore is a well know product and a brand that I trust. This product is made specifically to their Japanese market. It has SPF 50 / PA+++ and provides both UVA and UVB protection. The water-based formula promises to be non-sticky, non-greasy, and to provide sun protection without leaving a white residue.

I apply the sunscreen right before moisturizer so it’s important to understand that this is not a moisturizer replacement. What I like about this product is how quickly it absorbs to the skin. It has a very light pleasant smell that dissipates after application. The packaging is nothing spectacular, a soft plastic tube with a standard cap.

I purchased this item from Amazon, a package of 2 for almost $20. Very affordable for a chemical based sunscreen. Let’s hope this will keep my face from tanning! Hope you have a wonderful day!
