Such a chore isn’t it? But a necessary evil. If you aren’t SPF’ing yourself to death prior to heading out the door in the morning we can’t be friends anymore. SPF is essential at not only keeping your skin in good condition but also essential to your health.
But the moral of my ranting is that SPF is uncomfortable to wear. I have a rather intricate skincare regime and it seems like I use way too many products in the AM. Anti-aging serum, Vitamin C powder, SPF, Moisturizer, Toner, this, that, some of that, some of this….it’s too much!
Plus to add insult to injury in most cases SPF is rather thick so it makes my face feel oily or greasy and even really good ones end up feeling a tad uncomfortable in the long run.
If you have all similar rants you NEED Kao Bioré Aqua Rich Watery Mousse Water Base SPF 50+ PA+++!
Kao Bioré Aqua Rich Watery Mousse Water Base SPF 50+ PA+++ is a Japanese release. It’s an SPF 50+ which has a lighter mousse-like texture and applies like a dream!
This is incredibly good stuff and possibly one of the better SPF’s I’ve had the pleasure of trying from Japan and Asia in general.
It comes housed in a squeeze tube which makes application is breeze (no struggling with a tube). It’s scented subtly with a fresh citrus-like scent which shouldn’t be a bother, even to sensitive types.
Now the formula is very interesting….it starts off as a whipped mousse texture but once it hits your skin it becomes watery so it easily absorbs into your skin with little to no work on your part. A quick massage and you’re left with soft skin, no white cast, no strange SPF scent, simply protects sans the drama most SPF’s come with. Now the really interesting thing about it is after a second or two it begins to feel like SPF, it kinda has that locking, waterproof feel on your face, not uncomfortable at all but worth mentioning.
I’m quite pleased with the overall formula and can EASILY see this becoming HG. I’ve tried ALOT of Asian SPF’s, plenty of high end, and quite a few US drugstore ones and this is probably one of the best ones I’ve tried in terms of texture.
I experienced a little bit of oiliness on my jaw line and I’m trying to figure out if it’s from this or the Philosophy Miracle Worker Moisturizer I’ve been using…
- Anyone who simply hates the feel of SPF on their face (this is light, absorbs easily, and you’ll never know it’s on)
- Anyone who wants a inexpensive sun protection with a high SPF (retail is cheaper in Japan but E-bay and online shops have it for as little as $14.95 for a tube).
- Anyone sensitive to fragrance (this has a subtle citrus scent which I do think is barely noticeable but really sensitive types might not love it!).
I think anyone can easily get on board with loving this and I think it’s one of those MUST have, YOU need this type of products. The formula is so incredibly light and comfortable that I’m not dreading my SPF application in the morning anymore!
Absolutely an essential skincare item!
Great stuff and Muse Approved for Purchase!
It’s available on E-bay as well as a few online shops if you search around on Google. Sasa may even get it in stock if you wait a little bit.
Loves it long time!
