East Asian skincare is way ahead of our times in terms of skincare technology and ingredients. Naturally due to difference in cultural beliefs they market their products differently however this sunscreen is da bomb!
Its SPF 50+ (protection from UVB) and PA+++ (protection from UVA) for face and body. The sunscreen claims it has water base unlike conventional sunscreens which is gloopy blob which blocks pores, causes breakouts, leave white cast and overall leaves us with an unpleasant experience. In saying so, it is still a chemical sunscreen and personally I prefer chemical. I’m aware there are different schools of thought on this one, but this is my personal preference.
It contains Hyaluronic acid which ensures hydration for skin. The texture looks like ‘yoghurt gone bad-stage 1’ with tiny particles which on contact with skin emulsify and leaves the skin feeling fresh with fruity (not sickening at all) scent and cooling sensation. It doesn’t have a white cast and I’ve had no problems photographing this sans makeup. Unlike old school sunscreens, the cleansing process of this sunscreen is super trouper easy. No greasy residue at all.
I’ve tried other variants of sunscreen from Biore range, with whitening complex watery base (separate review coming soon) which I equally loved and cherished.
I’ve been through multiple tubes of this and always keep backups. One can never have enough sunscreen. Although I really wish they came in super-size tube like family size. After all, sun and sex need adequate protection <cheeky grin>.
