DESCRIPTION

SKIN AQUA UV Super Moisture Gel is a moisturising Japanese sunscreen gel that feels water-light for everyday wear.

The sunscreen gel has the same highly moisturising water-light texture as its previous formula, but it is renewed to feature maximum PA++++ UVA protection to better protect the skin against premature skin-ageing. It uses Rohto’s patent-pending “UV Boost” micro-encapsulation technology that boosts UV protection by 3 times yet feels fresher and lighter on the skin. A blend of 2 types of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and amino acid keeps the skin hydrated.

The water-light gel leaves the skin feeling hydrated, fresh with no residue. Best suited for daily use.

  • For face and body.
  • Resistant to water and sweat.
  • Can be used as a makeup base.
  • Removable with a face wash or soap.

I purchased this sunscreen in Singapore under the name ‘Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Watery Gel’. Same packaging, same bottle design, same SPF and PA rating, but with different ingredients. Upon further inspection, I found out that the export version sold in other Asian countries is actually superior: it so turns out that the version I bought contains 6 UV filters versus the 4 found in the domestic Japanese version. The 2 extra filters are Ensulizone, and, believe it or not, Tinosorb M. Not only does the export version have both Uvinuls, it also has both Tinosorbs. I have to admit… Read more »

Do you know if this has been discontinued? Sold out at YesStyle and Rakuten and the Amazon price went from $11 from when I bought it a while back to $17+. Thank you

Thank you, that’s good to know. I love this one, since it has no esters (unlike other light ones like Biore Essence) and is absolutely unique in that as far as I know. Very acne friendly

A few weeks ago this sunscreen was classified as “sebum resistant” instead of “water resistant”, was that just a mistake or referring to an older version? Is it really water resistant?

Are these chemical sunscreens all photo-stable? Also how does this compare to the Nivea Sun Protect Gel, is it somewhat moisturizing by itself?

Hi,

I was wondering if you know if the Skin Aqua UV Watery Gel (Link: http://www.guardian.com.sg/sunplay-skin-aqua-uv-watery-gel-spf50-pa-80g/p/130010) found in my local drugstore is a variation of this particular product?

Thanks!

Hi there!
Love your blog =) Do you know if your linked seller Energyplus ships via SAL? I couldn’t tell from their Store Info page and did not want to submit an order without knowing first. Thanks!

Hi, Ratzilla! Is this sunscreen waterproof? Also, how does this compare to the Nivea Sun Protect Water Gel SPF50 PA++++?

On my package, instead of “New” it says 汗・水・に強い, doesn’t that mean it’s water and sweat resistant?

Could a different version be released already? I can’t read Japanese, so I don’t know what it says on the back, but the front says 汗・水・に強い.

So sad, I cannot seem to find this version on Amazon–the link takes me to last year’s formula, I think. I will have to give Rakuten a try!

Hello Ratzilla,
Once again, you wrote a great review on your favourite sunscreens, very informative as usual. Do you think it would be safe to wear this sunscreen and walk on the street for 10 mm from my house to the supermarket or should I only use it indoors? Thanks in advance for your answer.
