The early 2017 was a ground-breaking in my life that i actually fully concerned about skin, it's even more crucial about my skin getting duller caused by sun's exposure (I use Grab Motorcycle almost everyday).

 I started adding sunscreen, day-night cream and another skin care products went on. I didn't even want to expose myself directly to the sun if it is not that necessary. What's more prominent, starting from  the end of 2017 i have never skipped using sunscreen with SPF even just a day, yeah until now..

Tracing back to the old time, it never crossed my mind about wearing sunscreen especially when i had no full-time outdoor activity, until this product change whole lot perspective about the usage of SPF in sunscreen or any skin care product.

Yes, applying sunscreen should never be restricted to summer alone, we need to use it on daily basis as it prevents our skin to harmful UV rays that can cause black spot, free radial even more further skin cancer.



ABOUT THE PRODUCT (THE OLD AND NEW ONE)

Biore in the form of watery essence contains 50SPF (UVA and UVB filter) is already existed in 2015, developing it into the newly similar one and finally manufactured in 2017. I have been showered with great reviews about this product both old and new version but some people notice a bit differences with the formula, the old one kinda leaves slight white cast and no white cast with the new one  at all, in the same way, better texture as well.




The only catchy different thing that we can see is the darker color tube for the new one, in reverse. Moving on from the texture and packaging color, the texture of the new one is somehow a little bit thicker but still watery much.

HOW TO USE

Use it everyday, either for the base of your skin scare routine or the last step. I usually use it for my last step of skin care regiment. For maximal result, re-apply it every 2-3 hours.


REVIEW

Well as it claims it's not that greasy and leave no white cast at all. This has citrus scent which smells good but a bit too much for me but still okay. But i don't really recommend you guys who have really really sensitive skin cus the citrus extract is potentially irritating. Note that it also alcohol, paraben and sulfate free. It is really suitable for those who has dry or combination skin.

 It kinda dries down to matte but still fine
for dry skin. For me who has combination skin it's such a great sun protection product, it's still lightweight even tough has thicker formula from the old one.

8.8/10
