Biore UV Aqua Rich Aqua Protect Lotion is a Japanese water-like sunscreen.
The water-based sunscreen goes on like water and transforms into a water-rich, mask-like texture that adheres and conforms perfectly to the skin. Biore’s Adhesive Outer Skin formula with encapsulated UV filters is dispersed in Aqua Nano Capsules, forming a thin and even UV-blocking film that adheres uniformly like a second layer of skin. Hyaluronic acid, royal jelly, and glycerin keep the skin hydrated.
The water-like sunscreen protects against daily summer UV exposure with no chalky white residue. Skin feels perfectly hydrated and smooth. Makeup applies better.
- For face and body.
- Very resistant to water and sweat (80 minutes).
- Can be used as a makeup base.
- Removable with a face or body wash.

Is this a permanent product? I just discovered this and love it already. I have oily skin and sunscreen is the hardest to find that would not make me oily or will cake my makeup.
Yes, it was re-released last year to be a permanent product.
This doesn’t irritate my eyes even when applied on lids and undereyes, unlike biore watery gel.
I thought Octinoxate causes eye stinging, most chemical Japanese sunscreens sting my eyes excluding hada labo (but the layering on that one doesn’t work on me). Even the 2023 skin aqua gel (white bottle) stings my eyes. I got this one and it doesn’t irritate my eyes too despite having Octinoxate and alcohol! So I’m now wondering what sunscreen ingredient really causes eye stings. My only issue with this one is the very tacky finish, I find it real quite sticky. I don’t wear make up so sunscreen is always my last layer. The fragrance in this is almost non-existent and I love. For reference, I’m Asian living in Australia with skin type Fitzpatrick IV & combo skin.
Eye sting is due to a product not having the same pH level as your tears. Since tears’ pH levels and eyes’ osmotic pressure vary from person to person, whether any given product stings someone’s eyes or not varies enormously. There isn’t really any way to know without trying the product yourself.
Unless all products that list a specific ingredient early in their ingredient list sting your eyes, you can’t really definitively say that a given ingredient stings your eyes.
Side note: Hada Labo doesn’t have sunscreen. The product that Westerners tend to talk about online is a moisturiser with SPF – it’s meant to be used entirely on its own.
Thank you, this is beneficial info! I ordered the newest and repackaged Biore watery essence and I’ll see if I’ll love the finish of it (less tacky than this lotion version). Otherwise, I’m sticking with the lotion version for my face for now. I bought 4 bottles of the 2023 skin aqua white bottle gel and will just be using those on the body since my eyes can’t befriend it haha. I tried the Hada labo uv gel and whilst it doesn’t make my eyes sting, it makes my eyes “cloudy” – it gives my eyes a funny feeling, plus it’s not water resistant so that’s a minus for me.
What did you think about the texture and finish on the skin of this one? I’ve been using it for about 2 weeks and overall really like it, but with my oily skin I was hoping it would be a bit less dewy. There’s also some tackiness to it at least for about 10 min. after applying.
I like it — it’s lightweight, non-sticky/greasy, non-staining, and ultra-cheap. With that being said, I only use this on my body.
Thanks for your reply! I like it too, just not a full-on HG due to the tackiness/tiny bit of shine. Curious as to the reason you only use it for your body, is it cos of the alcohol i.e. potentially drying out?
It has absolutely nothing to do with alcohol — in fact, I much prefer sunscreens with it.
I personally prefer my facial sunscreens that do more than basic sun protection, so this isn’t something I’d ever choose for my face given the myriad of other options I have on hand.
Please make an article about the best sunscreens for oily skin type.
Do you think this sunscreen is more durable than the Aqua Rich Watery Gel?
They’re more or less the same. Texture is the main difference.
