Biore is famously known by Indonesian for their Cleansing Foam line, Liquid Soap line, Make Up Remover line and Pore Pack line. But in Japan, where the originaly came, they also have some other line : Facial Cleansing (wider than what they sell in Indonesia), Make Up Remover (wider than what they sell in Indonesia), Pore Pack line (wider than what they sell in Indonesia), Powder Sheet line and UV Protection Line. More info can be found at www.kao.com.
I was looking for Japanese Sunscreen review, and i was thought for Biore UV Perfect Face Milk SPF 50 PA+++ (since it have SPF 50 and matte finish) and Sunkiller Baby Milk SPF 38 PA+++ (since it highly raved by beauty blogger). So when i found both of them was sell in forum, i chose to buy Biore UV Perfect Face milk.
description (taken from www.kao.com) :
Superior lightweight UV block for face, Matt Effect. Provides long-lasting UV protection of SPF50+/ PA+++. It has an ultra light, non-sticky texture. Also an ideal makeup base, it contains Sebum-absorbing powder to give you that matt look and keep skin shine-free.
Size : 30ml
Let's see the real picture :
A white simple bottle made from plastic.
the Ingredient and another product explanation.
All written in Japanese so i taken the ingredient list from here :
Active Ingredients: Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate 5.0%, Cyclopentasiloxane 25.7%, Zinc Oxide 12.0%, Lauryl Methacrylate/Sodium Methacrylate Crosspolymer 6.0%, Titanium Dioxide 0.47% Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone, Alcohol, Water, Lauryl Methacrylate/Sodium Methaxcrylate Crosspolymer, Talc, Glycerin, Titanium Dioxide, Methicone, Mica, Polysilicone-9, Peg-12 Dimethicone, Peg-3 Dimethicone, Cetyl-Pg Hydroxyethyl Palmitamide, Aluminum Hydroxide, Silica, Iron Oxides (Ci 73360), Bht, Barium Sulfate, Aluminum Dimyristate
It does contain alcohol which avoided by some people, but for me, it's okay. As long as it doesnt contain of Avobenzone, it's still okay. I am still collecting data to write more and more about sunscreen's ingredient list, will post it later.
The opened cap. Like another milky sunscreen i know, it does have a silver ball inside to help you shake the product. If you forget to shake it, a strange transparant liquid will come out instead of milky liquid.
i put small amount on my hand.
it turned into transparan. Visible but it's there.
What i love about it?
easy to absorb
SPF 50 PA+++
What i Hate about it :
thin plastic bottle, compared to my acnes uv tint
sometimes it could be deathly-matte
rating : 4.3/5
repurchase : would love to, if i can find another seller who sell it in cheaper price .. oh, and after i tried a sunkiller sunscreen, just for comparison :p
