Sliding in here for a quick beauty review; it’s not something I usually do but this is a product that I think is worth giving a shout about.
At the risk of sounding biased, I have never been happier with a sunblock than I have with this one. Which is fantastic for me because having oily skin means extra pain when it comes to applying such products.
But I won’t waste time complaining, so let’s roll on to the review.
What is it like?
With a price tag of RM32.65 and such a small, slim 40ml package, I wasn’t especially keen on purchasing this. I never really had any good experiences with sunblocks, and the thought of spending money on yet another that might leave my skin feeling sticky and grimy throughout the day wasn’t exactly appealing.
Yet I thought, “Why not?” The features listed called out to me and I really needed to have a good sunblock to incorporate into my beauty routine. At last, vanity won out and I made the purchase.
Here are the key features of this sunblock:
- Resistant against sweat
- Non-sticky formula with light powdery feel
- Does not leave white residue on skin
- Can be used as a make-up base
All of which I was pleasantly surprised to find out hold true.
Unlike most, this sunblock has a slippery, watery texture that can easily drip down your skin. Different, definitely, but the greatest difference I found was when I applied it on my face; it slid on easily and left a comfortable, powdery feel that I am never going to complain about.
It was almost as if I had not applied anything.
It’s light, easy to apply and best of all, allows my skin to breathe. A common complaint I have with sunblocks, as most of the ones I’ve tried tend to be sticky and caused breakouts on my skin. What a relief it was to finally find something that works for me.
Unscented. Thank goodness for that.
How long does it last?
For the amount of product itself? It takes me about 2-3 months to finish a bottle, though it should be noted that I strictly only use it for my face and neck. I expect it’ll run out much faster if I apply it on my arms and legs as well.
Slim and wonderful for travelling. You can pretty much slip it in anywhere without a problem.
My only issue with it is that it might be a bit hard to control the amount you pour out but thanks to the tapered tip, you won’t have to worry about it spilling on the bottle itself.
Comfortable all-day feeling. It helps some in oil-control too.
Adding on, I’ve also noticed that parts of my skin that I apply it to are a bit lighter than the rest, so it’s definitely working.
As for whether it works in fighting ageing, I guess I’ll have to tell you that in ten years’ time.
Where can I find it?
- Product rating: 5/5
- Packaging rating: 4/5
Definitely something I’ll keep buying for years to come. Bioré has earned a loyal fan in me.
