I wager you never thought you’d see this entry with this blog. But since summer season is almost upon us, this means the inevitable sunscreen questions keep piling up in my mailbox. And it seems that to almost all Western fans of Asian beauty products, “sunscreen” is synonymous with “Biore”. Even though Ratzilla regularly writes about Biore; even though everybody, their mother and her pet Chihuahua have already reviewed all things Biore a few million times; when it comes to Biore sunscreens apparently, is never enough.
So it should be the sign of times and surely the Apocalypse is close to, just because a dedicated Biore entrance is appearing with this blog. Why I am accomplishing this? Because YOU asked for this. And because I was inquisitive easily still felt about Biore the same manner as always.
You see, Biore is an OK type of products. The same manner that McDonald’s can be an OK choice of junk food if you are hungry and there is nothing else available in the nearest vicinity. Once in a while it’s perfectly appropriate. It’s cheap, it’s literally everywhere, and it gets the job done. Biore is the same exactly.
It’s cheap, within practically every store, in the deepest countryside in the middle of Hokkaido nowhere even, and it includes solid UV protection. What more would you want? Personally, I’d like a freshly-made salad with locally grown organic vegetables, fresh mozzarella homemade, and cheese basil vinaigrette dressing. I’m not going to think it is at McDonald’s.
It’s the same for my sunscreen. I’d like something that is a bit more skin-friendly than the bare-bones Biore lineup. But who understands, Biore might surprise me still. You never know until you try it. This is confusing, since it only says “Biore UV Face Milk” on leading of the 2017 version bottle in English. However, on the relative back again of the container, the full Japanese name still gets the word “perfect” in there written in katakana.
- Stay Clear Of Straight Sun
- Skin malignancies are most common in this type
- The personas that they enact require incorporation of very outrageous and strange styles
- Birch leaves work to lessen many epidermis issues, and even cellulite
Actually, it says “Biore Sara Sara UV Perfect Face Milk it” on there. So, what’s the official name? I assume, japan one. Why do Japanese companies do this? To confuse the enemy, Perhaps. There’s just 30 ml of white water inside, along with a combining ball. The scent is very faint, a sunscreen chemical alcohol kind of thing vaguely. It isn’t very offensive whatsoever. Compared to some other sunscreens out there, this aroma is a non-issue for sensitive noses like mine even. On the trunk of the package the explanations talk about using a “suitable amount”. A drop is recommended from the blurb of 2 cm in diameter to be employed over time to the skin.
I don’t know about you, but I use more always. I assume my face is bigger than a typical Japanese face. I find that for me personally a drop of 2 cm will be sufficient for both cheeks and the nasal area. I want another drop of about 1 cm for my forehead.
What may I say? I have an enormous face, it appears. It claims to be very waterproof with a level of resistance to water, sweat, and sebum. Waterproofness assessments were conducted for 80 minutes and the sunscreen provided UV protection still. How they tested it? I don’t know, don’t ask me. But much like all waterproof claims, it’s better to err on the side of caution. Go through the link to browse the list for the 2015 formulation, which is what the 2017 version is. The elements will be the same, only the packaging differs. Sorry, unlike other bloggers, I don’t possess time to translate the ingredients that have been translated by an expert already. UVB, UVA1, and UVA2 safety.
