Kao Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery BB Review & Swatches

Kao Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery BB Spring 2013

Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery BB was released earlier this February for Spring 2013 in Japan. This is Kao’s latest formula of their popular UV Aqua Rich Watery which I absolutely adore.

This protects with an SPF 50 PA+++ like the original but this new version is tinted to brighten skin up, ease dullness, and even out skin tone.

Take a look!

Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun SPF 45 Review

Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun

The Asian market has SPF and sun protection formulas perfected. Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun SPF45/PA+++ ($13.99) is proof positive that Asia makes a FAR better and superior sun protection base than anything you can get here in the US.

I typically prefer Japanese and Korean SPF myself due to their texture and ease of use. Anything I find here in the US is typically so greasy, heavy, and smells god awful.

Seriously, try out Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun and prepare to be delighted!

Skinfood Platinum Grape Cell White Sun Essence SPF 50 Review

Skinfood Platinum Grape Cell White Sun Essence SPF 50

Since SPF season is upon us I’ve been testing a few new ones out one of which is the Skinfood Platinum Grape Cell White Sun Essence SPF 50 PA+++.

This interested me because it not only protected with an impressive SPF 50 but also because it was created for duller skin types to not only brighten but also to address dark spots and to firm skin with grape cell extract.

Take a look!

Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse SPF 30 PA+++ Review & Swatches

Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse SPF 30 PA+++

Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse was recently released in Japan. We haven’t seen this one here in the US but fans of Shu’s original UV Mousse will be quite familiar with this one.

The original Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Mousse offered SPF 30 and came in a soft, mousse formula that absorbed easily. I don’t think they actually carry it anymore in the US but don’t quote me, it’s been a while since I explored Shu’s master line.

Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse simply adds the benefits of whitening to the mix. So if you’re looking to brighten, whiten, or ease dullness on your face it might be one you’d select over the original UV base.

Take a look!
