Kao Bioré Aqua Rich Watery Mousse Water Base SPF 50+ PA+++

I told you I was on the ultimate hunt for suncare items recently and among them a few products from Bioré. I recently got more into Bioré after neglecting this known sub-brand of Kao (one of the big Japanese companies) for some time. The variety of Bioré products allover the world seems to vary greatly and so far I am only interested the products available in Japan and other parts of Asia (not interested in the US and local stuff, sorry!)

The Aqua Rich Watery Mousse Water Base SPF50+ PA+++ is a very effective sun protection and can be used as makeup base.
This comes in a 33g squeeze tube with a slim nozzle which in my opinion makes it very comfy to use this product.

The Watery Mousse Water Base has a strange texture. It looks like a normal cream but when you spread it you definitely get the mousse-part about this.
This feels moisturizing and gives a very soft feel to my skin. It´s not overly rich or heavy so it´s perfect for summer or hotter climates.

This contains hyaluronic acid and extracts of lemon, grapefruit and orange and carries a light fruity scent.
This makeup base/suncare is not tinted and doesn´t leave a white cast on my skin at all.
The Aqua Rich Watery Mousse Water Base seems to keep my makeup in place but in general my makeup seems to stay fresh all day long unless it´s a very hot and sweaty day and then normally no base can preserve its freshness when it just melts off =)

I got mine from Adambeauty for US$12.50. The retail price is not printed but my guess is that it would be somewhere between 1000 and 1200 Yen.

Have you tried the Sofina Perfect UV Lucent sunscreen? It's by far my favorite sunscreen, and as of yet I have not gotten tan!!

Hi Blair,

It is water-proof or not? I'm planning buying one but it will be better to me if it is easy to remove
