[Review] Biore Skin Aqua Tone Up UV Essence SPF50+ PA++++

On my previous post, 20 Japanese Beauty Products to Buy in 2019, I featured the Biore Skin Aqua Tone Up UV Essence and finally, I got my hands on it. It is quite hard to find this sunscreen as it was sold out everywhere. I found it in a very rare place which is at the A' Famosa Freeport and it was the last one on the shelf.

This sunscreen provides color correction and brightens the skin for a filtered and photogenic complexion while enjoying great UV-protection. The lavender-colored base gives the benefit of blue + pink undertone that gives your skin translucent and a natural radiant. Something like skin tone correction concealer. Although it may seem on the photo that it is white, in real life it is actually purplish lavender.


  1. Hydrating and can be worn under the makeup. 
  2. Doesn't leave sticky feeling and feels comfortable underneath makeup. 
  3. The price is pretty reasonable - around RM59. 


  1. At the moment, it is still hard to look for. But I am positive that more pharmacies will be carrying this sunscreen soon due to its popularity in Japan. It has won the Cosme award many times. 
  2. The UV coverage of SPF50+ PA++++ is pretty average. If you're weaaring this underneath the makeup, you have to make sure that your foundation or makeup base is equiped with SPF coverage as well.

If you are looking for a sunscreen to be worn underneath your makeup, this is a good choice.
