Biore, from Japan, has been totally good with my skin since I first tried it when I bought some products from Japan. Mainly I bought products for cleansing, moisturizing and sun protection. Since I think it’s going to be a long time before I go back to Japan so I can buy some stash, I had to look for authentic local suppliers for this product, because every time that I try to look for it in malls, they’re always out of stock.
Product Facts: Biore UV White Face Milk
The Biore UV White Face Milk boasts of SPF 50+ that aims to provide UV protection and shine control. It has a light, non-sticky texture that makes your skin look and feel smooth and fresh. So, goodbye oily and shiny skin! (especially if it’s a problem when mid-day comes).
This White Face Milk protects your face from the harsh and harmful UVA and UVB rays from the sun which causes premature aging, wrinkles, large pores and damaged skin. The product has a smooth water-resistant veil which makes it resistant to both water and perspiration. The very resistant formula in fact lasts for 80 minutes, when you’re soaked on the beach and basking under the sun.
Product Facts Worth Pointing Out:
- It prevents makeup from smudging
- It contains sebum absorbing powder
- Contains glycerin to moisturize skin
- Contains hyaluronic acid which also helps in protecting your skin
- Suitable as a makeup base
- Does not contain fragrance and color
- Non-comedogenic (doesn’t block your pores)
- Its formulation impedes acne formation, especially for oily or acne-prone skin*
*not fully guaranteed. In some cases, it may cause pimples. If skin irritation occurs, duh! Stop using it.
Shake the bottle well before use. Smooth on skin evenly after moisturizer and before applying make-up. Avoid the eye area. As with all sunscreens, cleanse thoroughly with makeup remover or cleanser.
Product Personal Review
All of the facts that are presented in the packaging and as written above are true, at least for me, because for the longest time that I’ve been using their products I haven’t had any breakouts or any other harsh skin side effects, so it’s good.
One marker that I use when trying sunscreen is its effect on my acne marks. You can use acne mark whitening products all you want, but when the sun hits your face it’s just going to make those marks darker- unless you wear a good sunscreen. I haven’t been putting much products on my face because I am trying to undergo some ‘skin detox’, but my acne marks are looking much smaller and lighter.
With the consistency and texture, the product is really light and liquid but when it settles on your face it makes it appear matte. Actually it makes your face matte for like the whole day so you don’t have to worry about looking haggard and such even if you are tired. Unlike other sunscreens that show a white-cast (makes your face appear ugly chalk-white), this one is different because it just looks natural on your skin once it dries up.
At the same time, it’s not really hard to clean at night, which is another plus because usually by the end of the day I am just exhausted and want to go to bed directly.
Until you read from me again.
