Quasi-Drug (医薬部外品) BENEFIQUE White UV Genius is an anti-ageing Japanese sunscreen that targets sunspots.

The multi-functional daytime moisturiser targets discolourations, protects against daily UV damage, and prime skin surface for makeup. It is medicated with Tranexamic acid to treat and prevent sunspots and freckles. Benefique’s signature blend of traditional Japanese antioxidative botanical extracts including cinnamon and cassumunar ginger are encapsulated using Shiseido’s “Pico Moisture” technology, which penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin to better support cell turnover, skin clarity, and hydration.

Ideally suited for everyday wear, it has a lightweight, refreshing texture that glides on smooth like a beauty serum to give the skin complete protection against excessive pigmentation for a brighter, smoother, more even-toned complexion. Ideal for women in their 30s.

  • For the face.

3 Comments on BENEFIQUE White UV Genius [DISCONTINUED]

  1. Can you recommend a good, strong sunscreen for someone who is prone to adult cystic acne? I was using Biore Aqua Rich Watery Essence (2017) which seemed to work well but I read that it is not protective enough against the sun.

    Then I started using Skin Aqua Super Moisture Milk for the past few days and it made me breakout with two big cysts. I’m not sure if the Skin Aqua caused them but I prefer not to take that chance.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    • I’m not acne-prone whatsoever, so I’m afraid I have no recommendations. Reaction to products is completely individual though. What works for someone with the same skin type and concerns as you will not necessarily be the same for you.

      The entire Biore Aqua Rich line is formulated for normal everyday use (i.e. incidental sun exposure) not for a day outside in the sun. It’s perfectly sufficient if you’re using it as intended.

      • Gotcha. I’ll go back to the Biore until I can find something suitable for extended exposure. Thanks.
