Those who have a darker complexion find it tough to find a suitable sunscreen that does not provide the typical whitish shine on the face once it is put on. Most sunscreens are also quite heavy – although some may not be greasy or dry. But, it is difficult to find nevertheless, just a simple sunscreen that does not cause harmful changes to your skin’s moisturizing ability. With Biore Sarasara UV Aqua Rich Waterly Essence Sunscreen, this option can be a dream well realized. The product is Spf50+ and Pa+++ certified. Made in Japan, the sunscreen is rather difficult to find on the stores. If however, you can go online and check the web stores, you can pick one for yourself. Let’s check what useful ingredients it has so as to stand out from the crowd.
The product is sold in small baby-blue colored opaque plastic tubes of 1.67 oz or 50ml. The tube must be squeezed to pull out a creamy lather. The solution oozes out in a smaller proportion – so, there is least chance of getting an excess amount than what you wanted on the skin. Like most skincare products, this one too, is kept airtight and away from sunlight. The tube, once closed, remains safely tucked in small handbags. So, users just need to massage it on exposed areas when they are ready to go into the Sun.
The sunscreen is smooth and non-reactive in texture. As the name suggests, it is also watery with moisturizer-type feel. The whitish watery-cream blends into an invisible balm on the face. A skin at once starts feeling cool and hydrated. There is no dryness, fluffiness, or oily feel on the skin. Note, the screen is not water, sebum, or sweat resistant. Although watery in texture, the first-look is like that of a creamy lather. It does not flow on the skin as a result. The texture of the sunscreen is non-reactive in nature. The skin pores also don’t close due as there is practically no presence of oily substance that can coagulate with dust and grime.
There is a pleasant, fresh fruity-herbal aroma – similar to that of an orange. The sunscreen is a Japanese Biore product. However, it is sold in the US under Kao Corporation. The whiff rejuvenates the body as it has a fresh aroma – unlike the typical sunscreen smell. The citrusy smell is not all that pungent or strong. On the contrary, it subtly brings freshness into the skin. The lemony smell boosts the psyche also.
The aqua-based sunscreen is quite effective in quelling the harmful UVA/UVB rays of the sun. Whether the user is under the direct sunlight or sitting behind a glass window, the sunscreen is good enough to block a wide spectrum of UV rays – stipulated at Spf50+. It is highly effective as it has been certified a PA triple plus logo. The light sunscreen also has useful Tinosorb and Uvinul element that helps to keep off harmful radiations on the skin. The transparent finish gives a glow to the skin as the skin becomes soft and supple. The watery sunscreen has moisturizing element, hyaluronic acid that helps to hydrate the skin from within. The element, which is naturally present in the skin, is given its due boost after application of the cream. The skin therefore feels light and hydrated. The properties of the cream make it a typical serum – so, it can be put on as a makeup base. To clean the product from the face and upper parts of the body, a light cleanser can be used. Along with the acid, there are useful skin-rejuvenating elements, such as Restylane and Juvederm. As a result, the skin does not wrinkle or parch. Biore Waterly Essence Sunscreen gives a ‘dewy’ look. As the sunscreen has traces of citrus in it, it acts as a mild cleanser as well. The anti-oxidants help to make the skin get rid of the radicals that cause aging.
Apart from the mentioned ingredients, the watery sunscreen has traces of alcohol, and hydrocardons. There are natural products, such as Agar, Citrus Grandis or grapefruit, Citrus Medica Limonum or lemon fruit extract, and orange fruit extracts. It also has Potassium Hydroxide, BHT, and Parfum in it. There are no non-sticky or chemical properties in the sunscreen. Neither are their traces of PABA-centric ingredients or comedogenic substances.
A 50ml products costs around $10 – pretty good deal a think. If you hate the sticky and heavy feeling of most of the sunscreen, the sunscreen from Biore Sarasara (Watery Essence) will be a perfect choice.
