A few years ago, I picked up a SPF spray when I was in the US. I had never seen a sunscreen in a spray can before, and I was surprised at how easy they were to use. I looked for one when I came back to Japan, but I was not able to find one until this year!
This is a review of the Biore UV Perfect Spray, with SPF 50+ and PA+++.
Price: The price of sunscreen varies widely depending on where and when I purchase it. I can usually find this product around 700 yen ($7 USD).
Scent: This product has a faint sunscreen scent, but it does not linger
Availability: Biore is a widely available drugstore brand in Japan, and this product can be found at many drugstores and supermarkets
- This product is marketed as a clear spray. I found that it does not leave any white residue on my skin
- This product dries very quickly, leaving a powdery feel on my skin
- I did not feel that this product gave my skin adequate protection. The spray was so fine that I could not tell if I was applying it correctly.
Would I repurchase? No. I am really disappointed! No matter how much I sprayed on to my skin, it did not feel like I was applying enough. Maybe it just absorbed well into my skin, but sunscreen is not an area where I can take any chances. I’ll just pick up another spray sunscreen next time I go to the US.
Hope you enjoyed this review!
Late, yes, I know!
If you have been reading my blog for some time, you will know that every summer I mention how September is still hot in Japan, and that we consider September to be part of summer. Maybe I mentioned it too much, because this September is already quite cool!
On to my favorites!
Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet + Foundation
(a review is coming up soon!)
Now that the weather is cooling down, I have started to wear foundation again. I don’t really think this lasts all day, but it holds up better against my skin which is still in the summer=oily stage.
Jordana Color Tint Blush in Coral Touch
(link goes to my review)
I am not sure when I will go back to wearing powder blushes. I have really been loving cream blushes since I picked up a few in New York this spring.
Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
This brush is by far my favorite face brush. I use this brush to blend in my cream blushes. I also use it to blend in my foundation. I probably should have picked up another one when I was in the US!!
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Brazilian Tan
This product was part of the Revlon Rio Rush collection for Summer 2014, and I picked it up while I was in New York. This is a true nude lipstick on me without making me look like I have concealer on my lips. I also love the formula!
I had a hard time finding this lipstick, and luckily one of my twitter friends told me exactly which drugstore she had seen it in!
