Hola, people! The cold days are ending and its getting really hot out here. Sunscreen is definitely a must have skincare product under this blazing sun, whether you are outdoors, or indoors. Okay, so I would give Biore UV Aqua Rich  Watery Essence SPF50+ PA +++ a try!

My Impression 

I was using Biore UV Perfect Face Milk SPF 50+ PA+++, it is a really sunscreen but I thought that I need a change since my skin is getting a little drier. Since my sister who has a really dry skin is using it and it fares well for her, I thought of trying this as well. I love how non-greasy and watery it is. And I just need a little to apply.  It leaves my dewy and doesn't leave any white cast. It also absorbs fast and so far no breakouts for my sensitive skin! My skin didn't get any darker, which is a good sign and also didn't burn when exposed to sun. I have combination skin and this doesn't dry out my skin and also doesn't make my T-zone any oilier.
