Bioré UV AQUA Rich: Watery Mousse Water Base SPF 50+

Japanese Make-up brand has been a pioneer in skin care and also decorative one, so there's no doubt to try one product to prove them right. So, when Biore Japan moisturizer finally distributed in Indonesia, I don't mind to have one.

First impression of Biore SKIN AQUA Rich Watery Mousse Water Base SPF 50+ / PA +++ is : it has a holy high (SPF 50+) formula. Unlike Indonesian skin care series which is ranged from SPF 15-25+ formula in it, Japanese confidently stay at ground with high level SPF 50+.

A glance of information about sunscreen:
Asian brands, particularly Japanese ones, tend to use The Protection Grade of UVA (PA) system to measure the UVA protection a sunscreen provides. The PA system is based on the PPD reaction and is now widely adopted on the labels of sunscreens. According to the Japan Cosmetic Industry Association, PA+ corresponds to a UVA protection factor between two and four, PA++ between four and eight, and PA+++ more than eight.
So, the higher SPF formula applied onto the skin, the less risk to obtain skin cancer caused by the UV ray radiation. Further more, sunscreen also helps to prevent wrinkles, sagging and dark spots in the skin caused by the UV ray. In addition, Japanese ladies are keen with their skin's appearance and condition thus product with higher-level of SPF is always on-the-go and best seller. More post of Japanese's beauty will be reviewed soon, so please stay tune.

Biore SKIN AQUA Rich: Watery Mousse Water Base SPF 50+ recently been distributed in Indonesia at several drugstores franchise and costs around IDR 100k plus. It is packaged in a plastic tube with a pointy tip and made from a lacquered plastic. Nett for 33 gr and travel friendly; but that's not its prominent point.


As you can see in the above picture info, there are 4 note-worthy points:
  1. Strong UV block effect
  2. Freshen & Hydrates
  3. Creates pore soft focus
  4. Make up base effect
The product works well with its high level sunscreen formula to protect the skin from UV ray and prevent dark-spot and 'sun burn' that could appear in the skin. Improved with Hyaluronic Acid to hydrates the skin's condition and Citrus essence to maintain skin's moisture. No wonder the cream spoiled you with a fresh and subtle citrus-y fragrant not like any other sunscreen product.
However, the make-up base effect actually caught my heart; the sunscreen cream finely gives a velvety make-up base. It gives a bit powdery-chalky finish and successfully covers skin's pore plus gives a long last light-weight feeling. Allergy tested and easily absorbs into the skin.

The cream is creamy with a bit of mousse texture; so tbh it is not a mousse texture at all. The pointy tip is also helpful to measure the amount of required cream. The only problem so far that it's a bit hard to squeeze the product out from the tube. Due to the texture of the cream so pea-sized cream is enough to cover allover face.


My Verdict?
As you can see the product immerse easily into the skin and creates a powdery finish + chalky result in which offers you a good base make-up. You can use it alone or built it with your daily foundation or just a dust of your favorite loose powder. The tangy orange fragrant also doesn't bother me at all; it is subtle and not too strong imho. The moisture formula ultimately works well with its water base formula to keep the skin supple and prevent it from dryness. Several trial totally satisfied me when I was out with an extreme heat out there at the beach *phew* and at the end of the day I couldn't find my face got sunburn or so on. The product gives me a 2-thumbs up for it's moisture formula and UV ray prevention, but instead of its featured formula like good make-up base, the whole benefits should be crowned after all. It gives you a supple skin, prevent from UV ray, creates a good make-up base and travel-friendly; all hail to Biore Watery Mousse Water Base. The only thing I dislike should be the price: it's a bit pricey for a small amount (33 gr) of product and hardly to be found all over Indonesia. So, when you're running out of product, you should run (not walk) to your nearest leading apothecary or department store. After all, I am definitely will put this all-it-can-do product on my stash. What about you? Are you also satisfied with this product?
