Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence is a water-light Japanese sunscreen for daily use.

The newly improved sunscreen essence features Biore’s new “Micro Defense” formula that uses ±0.2 μm sized “micro UV-cut Capsule” and Biore’s new proprietary “Ultra-Light Outer Skin” technology, creating a thin and even UV-blocking film that adheres uniformly like a second layer of skin down the micro crevices. It gives the skin more uniform daily protection against UV damage while maintaining the same water-light texture and invisible finish as before. Moisture-rich water capsules, hyaluronic acid, royal jelly, and butylene glycol keep skin moisturised.

It provides long-lasting, undetectable protection against casual UV exposure without leaving a sticky or white residue. Skin feels fresh, light, and smooth no matter how often it is reapplied. Ideally suited for everyday wear.

  • 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.

11 Comments on Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence (2019 Formula) [DISCONTINUED]

  1. Has this not been reformulated yet? I thought Bioré sunscreens normally reformulate every 2 years

  2. Hi!
    In the Kai press release for this and the gel version they explain about their “Micro Defense Formula.” I am having difficulty understanding whether they mean that the sunscreen active itself is encapsulated, or another substance that helps the sunscreen active stay in place.

    If you know, can you tell us whether it’s the sunscreen active (i.e. Octonoxate) or another substance?

  3. Hi, Ratzilla! Hope you’re doing great.

    So I find this one not to be THAT easy to wash off, at least from my skin. In fact, I double cleanse using my face wash to feel completly clean since I still feel a residual silicone feel left behind after the first take. Do you think it would be appropriate for the gym where I’m indoors not receiving direct sun light? I’m not much of a sweaty person by the way.

  4. Hi is the 0.2 mm sized mean 0.2 milimetres or 0.2 micrometers? Also I noticed in the Biore Kids Milk sunscreen it mentions it features “microencapsulation” technology – is this different from the new “Micro Defense”? Thank you
