I’ve used the Biore Aqua Rich UV Watery Essence before (about 6 bottles I think), thought it was my holy grail. They must have changed the formula or something, because I didn’t used to find it greasy before, but found it to be kind of slick on my last two bottles. I began looking for alternative Asian Sunscreens (they really are the best for not having white cast and not feeling heavy!), and found out Biore had the slightly different Aqua Rich Uv Watery Gel. Couldn’t wait for it to come in the mail, and I can say, I wasn’t disappointed! The Watery Essence had a thinner consistency in my opinion, but like I said, felt too greasy on my acne prone skin. THIS one does not. The Watery Gel is slightly less transparent AT FIRST compared to the Watery Essence (almost has a yellowish cast to it), but once it is spread evenly across my skin it’s clear. It feels amazing and light throughout the day. I’ve never gotten a sunburn on my face while wearing it. My skin on the rest of my body is noticeably darker so I KNOW it’s working! The only reason I’m not currently using it right now is because I recently started Tretinoin and you’re not supposed to use anything with alcohol in it while on the medication (this apparently has alcohol but honestly I didn’t notice any drying from it). As soon as my skin has gotten used to the Tretinoin or I go off it, I’ll definitely be going right back to this one!! Especially for the price!!
