Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence Review

Today I am going to share my thoughts on Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence. I bought this because there are so many great reviews about this product and of course, the price is very affordable.

What it claims?

How to apply?
The last step for skincare. Maksudnya lepas cleanser, toner, moisturizer, baru lah apply sunscreen ni. Lepastu continue makeup pulak (primer, foundation etc)

The packaging:
The product comes in a 50 ml plastic squeezable tube with a white twisted cap. Leceh sebab dia tak attached. Senang nak picit and guna tapi tak nampak dia banyak mana.

The colour/consistency/texture:
Pale yellow. It feels like a gel-like moisturizer and very lightweight. 

The scent:
Quite strong citrus smell macam bau lemon sikit. Which, I don't really like.

How I feel:
This product contains alcohol and the alcohol is the third ingredient?? Which means the alcohol percentage is quite high and I have sensitive skin. It also contains fragrance, lemon extract, orange extract which MAY cause irritation. Depends on the skin. Ada kulit yang okay je, ada kulit yang tak boleh.

So the first time I applied, it has the watery effect, quite cooling, rasa macam okay I can deal with this sunscreen. Awal awal quite greasy and melekit, tapi lepastu dia absorb.

Bila dah absorb, dia dries matte. Almost matte. Terus rasa kulit jadi kering. Tak moisturizing sangat for my dry skin. And after that, rasa pedih and irritated. So I washed it off.

I tried again a few days later, still the same. I don't like it. My skin doesn't like it.

Not for me, since I have dry and sensitive skin. However, for not-so-dry skin, normal skin or combination skin, I think this one is great. Not greasy, dries matte, has the watery effect, and affordable.

It depends on your skin!
