Product Review: Bioré AQUA Rich Watery BB SPF50+/PA+++

I got this small tube of sample in my mail last week and my first response was (my apologies to those working in Bioré) –I don’t read Japanese. The product brochure came in bi-lingual of English and Chinese. But the direction of usage and ingredients written on the sample tube itself is in Japanese. Thou if I may add, I find their website more informative than what is on the brochure.

Blemish Balm cream or BB cream for short is an all in one product – tinted moisturizer, make-up base (foundation/primer) and sunblock. Basically with a BB Cream is really handy for those who do not like putting too many creams/balms/lotion on their face on a daily basis. Most BB Cream in the market is oil based making the product sticky or greasy to the user. And it is a hassle to remove oil based products from the face particularly if you, like me have oily skin.
Bioré AQUA Rich Watery BB SPF50+/PA+++ - Ingredients (in Japanese)
The name of the product Bioré AQUA Rich Watery BB SPF50+/PA+++says it all; water based cream tinted moisturizer with sunblock. This light beige colored cream blends well onto the skin – just like a water base product would. And if you are worried about smell, fret not as this drug store brand product has something tangy up its sleeves – citrus smell. Personally I think it smells more like pomelo/pummelo (Citrus maxima) than orange/lemon type of citrus. Nonetheless, I like the smell –at least it is better than chemical smells!
Bioré - Hand swatch
Personally, I do like it very much particularly it is water base. After wearing it the whole day I don’t look like I’ve just dunk my face in a bowl of oil! I have oily T-zone hence it will be oily in this particular region however; I did not find the need to blot my face very often as the amount of secretion is rather minimal. Removing the Bioré AQUA Rich Water Based BB Cream is an ease. Since I have been habitually practicing double cleansing (first round with milk cleanser and second round with gel) I do not have any problems removing this BB Cream. I do not use foam cleaners as it makes my face rather dry. I would definitely recommend this to those with oily skin to give this product a try since I am liking it very much!
