Out In The Sun With Bioré’s Aqua Rich Watery Gel

[Product Review]

The haze is finally away, and the hot sun is out. This means more outdoor activities for my family, yay! Yet, I’m a lazy person, I don’t quite like to apply sunscreen. Naughty, I know. But the sunscreen products in the market are usually thick in texture, which leave a sticky and greasy feeling. I dislike that, especially when I sweat a lot.

I know prolonged exposure to the sun’s UV rays without proper protection can cause permanent effects such as premature skin ageing, wrinkles and freckles, as well as, various skin damages like discolouration, sallowness, dryness. I am already seeing some of them on my skin!


The most damaging UV rays can be classified into different wavelengths, known as UVA and UVB. UVA rays penetrate into the deeper layers of our skin as compared to UVB rays, and are also the dominant tanning ray. The penetrative ability of UVA rays through glass means that even when you’re seeking shelter indoors, your skin continues to be exposed to its harmful effects which can cause cumulative damage such as wrinkling and skin ageing.

On the other hand, UVB rays cause the most damage to the outer layer of skin such as reddening of skin and sunburns. Without proper protection, prolonged exposure to UVB rays can cause long-term damage to skin’s epidermal layers.

Thankfully, there is Kao’s Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel. It is its industry’s highest  level of UV protection, keeping us safe from harmful UV damage! This Aqua Rich Watery Gel contains the breakthrough Aqua Micro Capsule, a water capsule which breaks upon application on skin to release the UV protection agent while giving skin a cool and refreshed feeling.

And unlike most sunscreens that have a higher SPF value which tends to compromise on the product texture, Bioré’s Aqua Rich Watery series retains its lightweight feel and at the same time provide maximum UV protection. This Aqua Rich Watery Gel is also infused with hyaluronic acid and citrus extract to keep skin hydrated and healthy. I’m sold already, just by knowing these facts!

I'm going to enjoy more outdoor activities with less fear of skin damaging with Bioré’s Aqua Rich Watery Gel, hooray!
