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

The Japanese sunscreen essence features Biore’s “Micro Defense” formula that uses ±0.2 μm sized “Micro UV-cut Capsules” and Biore’s 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 uniform daily protection against UV damage and has a lightweight texture and invisible finish. 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.

9 Comments on Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence (2023 version)

    • Handier application on the body (where this sunscreen is mainly used in Japan) due to its push button nozzle. It also takes up significantly less space in the trash than a tube (or bottle) which is a big plus when space is at a premium.

      • Just curious, you mention this is mainly used for the body there, so what is Japan’s most popular (lightweight) sunscreen for the face then?

        • In Japan, most sunscreens that are popular among Westerners are primarily used for the body. Japanese people tend to use sunscreens that are specifically made for the face. These facial sunscreens are usually much more expensive, and they often have instant skin-beautifying effects. La Roche-Posay Uvidea XL Tone Up and Kanebo Veil of Day, are amongst the most popular right now (both cost over 4,000 JPY for 30-40ml).

          There are a few exceptions, such as Biore UV Aqua Rich Light Up Essence, Skin Aqua Tone Up UV Essence, and Canmake Mermaid Skin Gel UV, but these are mostly popular among teens.

  1. Which is tackier, this or the 2023 aqua protect lotion? I find the aqua protect lotion to be tacky than what I would have liked. Love the lotion since it doesn’t sting my eyes.

  2. This looks so pretty! Thank you for sharing. Love that they didn’t put whitening mineral filters in it.
