good review
Such a lightweight serum that's protects against uv but doesn't leave any white cast, Getting the right sunblock can be difficult but this is the one , applies and sinks into skin leaving it feeling moisturised but not greasy at all. 💦Bioré Watery Essence Sunscreen is so weightless and hydrating, it's as if you're splashing water onto your face whenever you apply it. 💦 The high water content of this milky formula keeps oil at bay, ideal if you have oily or acne-prone skin 🍀Product features 🌱1) Formulated with moisture-rich water capsules to prevent dryness. 🌱2) Includes hyaluronic acid, Royal Jelly extract, and BG (moisturizing ingredients). 🌱3) Rinses away easily with soap in spite of the super-waterproof formulation*4 . 🌱4) No coloring agents....

Bioré's is the chemical sunscreen approach—and most dermatologists agree that it's just as effective as zinc and titanium dioxide. (If you're worried about safety, though, take comfort in knowing that Japan's cosmetic safety regulations are some of the strictest in the world).... Read more

𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐭: Bioré Watery Essence SPF 50 𝐃𝐞𝐬𝐜𝐫𝐢𝐩𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧: this is a popular Japanese sunscreen with amazingly watery, light texture. Has a refreshingly non-sticky & light skin feel, absorbs quickly, leaves no white cast. Infused with Hyaluronic Acid & Royal Jelly Extract. Allergy tested, gentle fragrance of white muguet. 𝐊𝐞𝐲 𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬: •4 chemical sunscreen protection factors, including Tinosorb s (broad-spectrum, very photo-stable) and Uvinul T 150 (gives highest photo-stable absorption of all available UVB filters) •glycerin, arginine and sodium hyaluronate to help retain and draw in moisture 𝐁𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐟𝐢𝐭𝐬: •broad spectrum protection from the sun •moisturises the skin 𝐌𝐲 𝐞𝐱𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞: ✅: Before I start, would just like to mention that this sunscreen has passed the sun protection factor test (due to recent scandals, many sunscreen had been tested and Bioré came out with a factor of 55.5). This is one of the most affordable sunscreen I could find so I had to give it a shot, despite some of the ingredients not usually being ones I’d go for in a formulation. However, this has ended up being an amazing, cheap and effective SPF! It has the most beautiful texture I’ve ever seen - so jelly like, and glides on the skin. Because it’s lightweight, it works so good for the hotter summer days! It leaves no white cast on the skin once you work it in a bit and leave it for two minutes (I have a deep skin tone so this is very important to me)! It works nicely to moisturise my skin as well, though my dry skin cannot use this by itself - however, I can now use a more lightweight gel moisturiser and then this SPF and it’s a perfect lightweight combo that doesn’t suffocate my face. It does not leave any greasy feeling, I can barely feel it on my face. I know that my oily peeps will love this one, and I would honestly recommend this sunscreen if you are on a budget!... Read more

❎: So talking about the ingredients I like to avoid, this sunscreen has two of them - alcohol and fragrance. Fragrance isn’t so high on the list (towards the bottom) so it wasn’t a massive concern, and my skin had no reaction to it. However, alcohol is quite high and it does smell a bit like alcohol to be honest. It scared me at first but my face didn’t have any reaction to it. The one thing I would say that it is drying because of the alcohol so it’s key I always wear a moisturiser. I wish the alcohol content was lower but I can’t complain so much due to its price....

My favourite sunscreen! 💙 Type: Chemical sunscreen 💙 Texture: Watery and almost gel-like texture! It glides on to the skin really smoothly and absorbs fast. Leaves almost no residue which is perfect for my oily skin😁 💙 Application: Since it is a chemical sunscreen, there is no white cast! Recommended for darker skin tones like mine! 💙 Smell: No strong smell and does not irritate my skin 💙 Reapplication: No piling, very easy to reapply!! ... Read more

💙 Price point: Steeper than other products, each tube does not come with a lot of product so it is less value for money... Read more

💦 An amazing gel watery light texture! 💦 Despite having a high alohol content, it feels super moisturising and hydrating on the skin. Probably because of the high moisturising ingredients such as glycerin, sodium hyaluronate, and royal jelly extract. 💦 feels like a thick serum, very refreshing 💦 ZERO WHITE CAST 💦 it does not break out my sensitive skin! And doesn’t make me feel greasy or tacky at all!!... Read more

The main downside is purchasing this product as its not widely available in UK. Also, the bottle is on the smaller side but it is not too expensive. ... Read more

I used this sunscreen last year, so this is just what I recall from using it. This was the first sunscreen I bought after learning the importance of using one everyday. I loved the lightweight texture of it; I have never felt such elegance from a sunscreen before. It was very easy to spread and left a dewy, but not greasy glow. Didn’t feel thick on the skin at all. I enjoyed the fragrance and it made me very excited to use the product every morning. (A very peculiar observation is that its scent was enhanced by the use of the I’m from rice toner.) Also great to know that this particular sunscreen has held up even after all the sunscreen scandals currently.... Read more

This has a heavy alcohol content, which is very apparent when you use the product. Do NOT take a whiff of it as it comes out of the nozzle. You’ll definitely regret it! It also stung my eyes a little, but I’m not sure whether that is due to the alcohol.. Overall, this is an amazing product for those with oily skin and/ or who live in a super hot & humid climate, and don’t mind fragrance or alcohol. It stung my eyes, but eye stingingness (?) is very personal.... Read more

During daytime, don’t forget to put y’all’s sunscreen and reapply! I’ve repurchased this several times! Me personally would prefer serum sunscreen like this one rather than sun cream. On my super dry skin, it doesn’t make it any drier, and doesn’t make it greasy either. It’s fragrance free and safe for sensitive skin. Usually when I’m in a hurry I just apply this all over my face and neck without any other layers of skincare hahaha.... Read more
