Ever since I ran out of my previous sunscreen+moisturiser, I’ve been too lazy to go to Watson’s to get a new one. When it comes to skincare products, I like to try out new stuff whenever I run out of something I’ve been using. There’s pros and cons when I do this, there IS a chance I might find something better OR I’m stuck with something I don’t like and I’ve wasted my $$ especially since I could have just stayed on with the previous product.
I didn’t know I could have such thoughts about skincare products.
I really feel like I scored big when the new product I tried is something I really really like! Which in this case, is the Biore UV Watery Essence!
I’ve been using it for almost three weeks now and I’ve been really really loving it. To be honest, when I first saw the name, the word Watery didn’t really attract me cos I really dislike runny sunscreen+moisturiser. Maybe its just me, but to me, runny consistency does not equate to easy application.
But the consistency of this is far from runny. Here is a picture comparing the texture with one of my previous sunscreen+moisturizer.
At first, I was quite alarmed cos I saw that the color is slightly yellow-ish and it has this sandy texture with small tiny beads. As soon as I massage it into my skin, it disappears (: The tiny beads are actually Aqua Micro Capsules containing UV block ingredients and they release moisture upon application!
There is no strong sunblock smell and it doesn’t make my face feel oily even after I’ve had it on for a day. It immediately absorbs into your skin and leaves a smooth, matte finish. Not greasy or sticky at all! It is also suitable for both body and face use and most importantly? SPF 50!
How does this fit into my morning skincare routine?
