Review: Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence

Review: Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence

Not long ago I started to take care of my skin more than usual due to the inevitable fact that my skin has gone through some changes. The usual thing for me is I don’t wear sunscreen all over my body regardless of the weather. I couldn’t care less about going out without sunscreen, not until I learned that one of the culprits of premature aging and dark spots is the harmful UV rays. Upon learning this, I hurried to the nearby drugstore and first bought one for my face.

Following this, I decided to get one for my body as well. This product isn’t the first I’ve ever put on my body. To be honest, I was just lazy to write reviews on the previous ones I used. I’ve been engaged in studying Japanese and Korean these days which pretty much explains why I haven’t posted anything since last Wednesday. I’m supposed to blog every other day, but seriously, studying these challenging languages makes me zone out many times a day. Have you ever tried that? Anyway, so much for that, let’s get the ball rolling!

Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence (for Face & Body) SPF50+ PA++++ 50g


  1.  A long-lasting gel that firmly protects your skin from strong UV rays preventing freckles and blemishes due to sunburn. Also prevents UV-A which causes the decrease in elasticity.
  2. New formula with SPF50+ PA++++
  3. Lightweight
  4. Easy to remove with a regular cleanser
  5. Sweat-proof
  6. Contains moisturizing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, royal jelly extract, citrus mix, and orange.
  7. Made in Japan

The reason why I opted for this one is that of it being awarded as the best product in 2014. If you could see that sticker on its packaging. Also, I like how handy it is. As soon as I opened and tried it for the very the first time, I instantly loved its refreshing scent that goes away once the product dries up. Despite having that high concentration of SPF, it isn’t heavy on the skin at all. I use it on my body and whenever I sweat, the product doesn’t trigger any itch or something.


  1. Lightweight
  2. Stays on for long hours.
  3. Blends smoothly.
  4. No white cast
  5. Gentle on the skin.
  6. Doesn’t cause rashes.
  7. Doesn’t produce any foul odor when you sweat.
  8. Can be also used on your face.
  9. It leaves my skin moisturized without that stickiness.
  10. After being out in the sun for a couple of hours, I don’t see any darkening, especially in the exposed areas.


  1. A bit expensive for its size.
  2. Packaging has no English description at all. A little can be very useful already especially for foreigners who can’t read Japanese yet.

I’ve been using this for almost 2 months now and I’m quite satisfied with how it’s keeping me from getting a sunburn. It’s perfect for daily use. Highly recommend it!
