Kao Bioré UV Daily Care Gel SPF28 PA++

I am currently on a sunsreen kick =) I always use sunscreen on my face and body, even on my hands as for me it´s a really vital step before heading out of the door.

In winter I usually just rely on the sun protection of my foundation or base (normally around SPF15-20 or so) but now as it´s turning warmer and having in mind that I will stay about 5-6 weeks in Egypt I decided to haul some sunscreens to be on the safe side.

I got a few bottles of body sunscreens which I mainly use on my arms, hands and neck as I am not someone who´s wearing clothes bearing lots of skin... I always wear long pants and my shirts´ sleeves usually reach below my elbows =) Very boring, I know!

Anyways, I got this green bottle of UV Daily Care Gel from Kao Bioré for US$11.50 from Adambeauty and quite like it!

You get a smallish bottle (120ml) of a milky gel in a green squeeze bottle. If you plan on using sunscreen on your whole body the bottle won´t last you an eternity but if you just use it on certain parts it will be good for quite a while.

The gel is very lightweight and easy to spread.... I am not sure if the coverage can be sufficient that way but I didn´t get any sunburn or something and was out the whole day so I think it´s fine.
The UV Daily Care gel has definitely an alcohol smell to it which vanishes quickly and leaves a fresh scent behind, sort of like a Cologne.
It´s not sticky at all so after like 3 minutes I totally forget that I am even wearing sunscreen!

This has an SPF of 28 PA++ which (in my personal opinion) is enough for the moderate sun-rays here but for my trip to Egypt I stocked up on several products with SPF50+ PA+++ (e.g. from Kosé Softymo´s Q10 line).

I am pretty sure this is not waterproof so it´s a good choice for using when you are just out in the park, go shopping etc.

Here is the lineup of Bioré sunscreens. I will soon review the Aqua Rich Watery Mousse Water Base and the UV Mild Care Milk.

Oh, Egypt? I wonder what essential items you'll bring with you on your trip! When are you leaving, I wonder?

I swear by this sunscreen! It isn't heavy enough for being in the sun for long periods of time, but it's a great everyday sunscreen! I think it may be one of the first products I reviewed!

Can you apply this on your face? Does it clog your pores? I see this product is intended for the body, but it is safe to put it on your face? Sometimes I just go outside for a short time so I don't want to apply my current sunscreen (Biore UV Perfect face milk), which is water-proof and there for it's hard to remove it.
