[Beauty Review] Biore UV Bright Face Milk [PINK] Sunblock SPF50PA++

I must admit that I was one of those lazy ones who couldn’t care less about applying sunblock and its importance. I have had freckles on my face for the longest time ever known, like since young? It could be because I used to be quite sporty back in my teens (yeah I know, it was that long!) and I was frequently under the sun. I used to be quite tanned to be honest.

By now, I hope you girls know the importance of applying sunblock before heading outdoors, if not you should really google all about it!

Anyhoo, I guess the freckles stuck by me for the longest time (sounds so wrong?) and till date, I still have them. Speaking of which, I hope I’ll be able to laser them off soon or something but honestly speaking, lasering my face is so much scarier than lasering off my birthmarks on my body?

It was only until recently I decided to be more diligent and apply sunblock lotion before applying my foundation. I’m using Chanel compact foundation powder by the way that includes an SPF of 20. I was using Sunplay SKIN Aqua UV Moisture Milk SPF50 PA+++ and DrX’s Non-tinted Sunscreen SPF 30+ (5A) 60ml.

Recently, I ordered this Biore sunblock from Qoo10 and I’ve been loving it ever since! Never regretted.

With the constant lack of sleep, my skin loses its radiance easily and the lack of luster inevitably results in dull skin. That was the reason why I choose ‘bright skin’ instead of the rest.

Now, on to my face.

These pictures are totally unedited, except to sharpen its resolution (because my iphone camera sucks).

Sigh, just take a look at all my ugly freckles and huge pores… 😥

Now, for the pros and cons.

Pros :

  • It does brighten up your skin instantly after application
  • It has quick-absorbent properties
  • Non-sticky

Cons :

  • Dries up pretty fast so you will have to apply quickly all over your face 
  • The price difference between retail and the Qoo10 shop which I got this sunblock from is like what, a few bucks? I only realised it when I happen to chance upon it at SaSa which is selling at $15+. Not sure about other retail shops though.
  • Too small a bottle, wish it came in bigger size like its blue version (Sunplay SKIN Aqua UV Moisture Milk SPF50 PA+++)

Snow white porcelain skin is what every woman wants to achieve and sunblock lotions are definitely a must-have!

For those who are 1st timers and guilt-strickened like me, here’s why sunblock lotions are important!

Sunblock should be used to protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun. Ultraviolet (UV) rays provide humans some benefits including the induction of vitamin D production in the skin, but these rays can also be harmful. Too much exposure to UV rays can result in sunburn and even sun poisoning. Repeated excessive exposure can lead to skin cancer. Those who spend time in the sun are encouraged to use sunblock products in order to avoid skin damage.

Skin Aqua has recently launched its nice product!

Introducing New Sunplay SKIN Aqua UV Moisture Milk SPF50 PA+++

Yes, SPF 50 PA++ !!! It’s double the amount of the previous products!

What is SPF? 

The sun protection factor (SPF) of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen — the higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen offers against UV-B (the ultraviolet radiation that causes sunburn).

Tired of greasy, strong-smelling sunscreen? Skin Aqua is ultra light with its Japanese watery liquid texture. The lotion is comfy and absorbs quickly without giving a white cast. It is non-greasy with a matt powdery finish for the perfect make-up primer. Non-sticky no matter how many times you re-apply.

Skin Aqua is fragrance, color, alcohol and oil free, and is suitable for all skin types.

Skin Aqua has Solarex-3, a revolutionary formula with 3 comprehensive levels of UV defense. It protects skin from surface to deep within for long hours. Super hydrating too!

The New Generation Solarex-3 (3-in-1 Sun Protection) 
1) Long Lasting, Superior UV Protection: Advanced photo-stability with the highest UVA & UVB protection for long periods of safe sun exposure. UV rays are reflected away like from a mirror.
2) UV Anti-Aging Protection: Two powerful anti-aging ingredients, RonaCare Exotin and French Golden Algae, help to prevent pigmentation and wrinkles from surface to deep within.
3) Intense Hydration (Dryness Protection): Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen & Vitamin E intensely hydrate and lock-in moisture for long hours, so skin stays refreshingly moist.

As you can see from the above picture, this new product is definitely NOT greasy at all! I applied on my face and body before heading out to Gardens by the Bay last Sunday! Did not experience any greasiness nor sun burnt on my skin and am very satisfied with Sunplay SKIN Aqua UV Moisture Milk SPF50 PA+++! 🙂

The SUNPLAY Skin Aqua range is available at Watsons, Guardian, Sasa, Unity and other major department stores.

Start protecting your skin now!!! 🙂
