DESCRIPTION

SKIN AQUA UV Super Moisture Milk is a moisturising Japanese sunscreen milk for sports. It replaces SKIN AQUA UV Moisture Milk launched in 2008.

The milky sunscreen features the highest UV protection in the Skin Aqua lineup, and it turns into a transparent, water-like texture when applied on the skin. A blend of 2 types of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and amino acid keeps the skin hydrated.

The moisturising yet water-light milk gives durable sun protection that is ideally suited for the beach and water sports as well as everyday wear. Skin feels moisturised, smooth, and comfortable with no sticky or white residue.

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

The packaging is renewed in 2020 to partially use mechanically recycled PET.

Hello, wondering how to know the exp date of this sunscreen? I have the 2019 version, and I’m wondering how long is it good to use? Will it exp this yr? Once opened, is the product only good for one year before it expires?

Hello, Ratzilla! First of all, thank you for providing info about this sunscreen. I have bought it several years ago when I was in Japan because I had forgotten my sunscreen at the hostel and I was hooked. I didn’t know where to look for it and then I found your page, so thanks for that! <3 My question would be about the level of UVA protection. Does Rohto disclose a more precise level of UVA protection in European PPD measuring system? I would love to know of this is PPD16 or 20, or 30 or higher. Thanks.

Do you feel like its really removable without an oil cleansing? Or do you prefer to remove every sunscreen with an oil even if you were not using any make up?

That’s weird, I have found it very difficult to remove it with my conventional facial wash. It just doesn’t foam… Like tinted mineral sunscreens does with my face wash.

Hi, thank you so much for this site 🙂

Just a quick question-has this sunscreen always had the same ingredients list, just different packaging?

Thanks very much!

Hi Ratzilla, can you recommend the adequate amount of this sunscreen to use on the face? It is quite liquidy. I usually follow the “2-finger rule” for my face but this sunscreen is so liquidy for that.

Hi Ratzilla, should I wait 20 mn after I apply this sunscreen if I want to apply a tinted moisturizer over it? Also, you mentioned that you like to use a tinted sunscreen when you fly. Any recommandation? Thanks in advance for your answer!

Hi, ratzilla! I love your website! Thank you for sharing all this information in English! So, I’ve been using this on my face for almost a year now and I love it! I live in Brazil, so I face a very hot and humid climate. This has been really good, but it’s super hard to find here. The salesman I used to buy it from doesn’t have it in stock anymore. So I looked it up on other online stores and I’ve seen a product with the same name, but slightly different packaging. The main difference is the font in… Read more »

Why is the skin aqua milk so streaky? Though I saw one or two users iirc saying that they used it under harsh sun/sports and didn’t tan, so anecdotally it worked for them?
Thanks

Thanks a lot for the insight. I’ll be honest I went a bit cuckool even though it was only person doing one test… Haha. I saw a lot of users wanting to jump ships from milk sunscreens and opting for European and cream/lotion sunscreens… Also, there’s users saying that zinc oxide is more grayish because its a non chemical sunscreen… And chemical sunscreens show up as black on uv cameras? How much milk sunscreen should the average uses depends on their facial width, and I’ve read that 1/4tsp is often too much. I didn’t know about rubbing vs tapping sunscreen…… Read more »

This is VERY correct! This is why the very popular Shiseido Anessa doesn’t work for me at all, because it won’t stay put on my skin no matter what, both the alcohol and non-alcohol types. My skin prefer the Kanebo Allie, Nivea, Kose Sekkisei, and Skin Aqua.

Hi ratzilla. Don’t know if you’ll see this but I’ve seen you mentioned ‘rubbing’ sunscreen is a big no a couple times now. Can you elaborate on that please? Is the correct method to ‘pat’ on sunscreen? I always spread it on my face, never use the pat gesture.

Hi Ratzilla! I’m the girl who posted the above Reddit test. Your questions here are all great and I’ll remember them in my future tests. Some of them I can answer: I did remember shaking the bottle before use – I always do as I realise it needs to be properly mixed first. I applied the product by rubbing it on. I wasn’t aware at the time of testing that this one was supposed to be tapped in, however I since tried this with the Skin Aqua as part of another test (https://www.reddit.com/r/SkincareAddiction/comments/bnqtf4/sun_care_another_sunscreen_test_see_info_in/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share) and I found there was no way… Read more »

This is spectacular. It has an invisible finish that doesn’t feel matte or oily, but as if you didn’t use anything. Slightly moisturizing, perfect for normal to dry skin. No white cast on my skin, while the Biore Perfect Face Milk leaves a slight white cast for me. It’s not sticky and sinks in in about 15 minutes. Given that this does not contain alcohol, it’s outstanding. Personally I’m too oily and use Biore Perfect Face Milk for its oil control, but if I wasn’t, I’d use this. 2 minor gripes. It doesn’t contain as many filters as Biore Perfect… Read more »

Does this leave a white cast?

Is this lighter or heavier than Biore UV Nobi Nobi Kids Milk? I have oily skin and I thought the Biore one isn’t so bad. Wouldn’t the zinc oxide in this Skin Aqua one be able to absorb some oiliness?

I finally bought one from Amazon but unfortunately, it clogs my pores and is difficult to wash off. Apart from these 2 flaws, it’s perfect.
