Seoul Guide

Use as the last step of your daytime skincare routine. Dispense a generous amount and spread across face. Apply 20mins before sun exposure and be sure to reapply every 2-3 hours while out in the sun. 

Why we like it

The inclusion of hyaluronic acid and royal jelly ensures maximum hydration while the micro defence formula covers the skin evenly to prevent damages even at a micro level. Even though it is waterproof, this sunscreen washes off easily with your foam cleanser

    I’m so happy I purchased this. I was skeptical when I poured the first white and runny dose onto my palm but as soon as you apply it to your face it goes translucent and leaves your skin feeling hydrated. This is also one of the first SPF lotions I have tried that has not clogged my pores!

  2. kevashagovender (verified owner)

    I Love this, it doesn’t break me out and it’s so light on my skin I’m definitely purchasing this again and many of them so I always have one on me. 😍

    Another wonderful sunscreen. Non-greasy; doesn’t leave that tacky feeling on the skin, and doesn’t make my eyes water.
    My only complaint is the packaging. I don’t know why it needs an extra piece of card and plastic wrap.

    This sunscreen offers strong sun protection with a wonderful finish on the skin. It is very watery in consistency, making it wonderful to apply and reapply without pilling. It of course doesn’t clog my pores and you get a lot for your money. However, on my light brown skin, it takes a long time for me to work the white cast away, which becomes very tedious. The scent is also quite unpleasant for me.
    Overall this sunscreen offers great protection and texture but it isn’t the right fit for my skin tone unfortunately

  5. Simonee Van rooyen (verified owner)

    This product goes on smooth, doesn’t leave my skin shiny and i love that. It does however leave my face white, and because my skin is on the drier side it makes my skin feel tight. Be cautious if you do not have light skin and you are on the more darker side like myself. I like the smell. I am also probably not going to buy it again but purely based on the white cast-off.

  6. Emma (verified owner)

    This is a great product. My skin is very sensitive and most sunscreen either stings or makes my eyes water, to the extent where people stop to ask me why I’m crying as I run errands. It’s really hard to find sunscreen that both works for my skin and is within my budget. This one is! It works incredibly and doesn’t clog my pores, nor bother my sensitive skin, while protecting me from the sun. Relatively speaking, the price is very reasonable. I love this sunscreen!

    Quickly absorbed, not greasy, doesn’t clog or sting. Does contain alcohol which could be drying. My skin is sensitive and I didn’t experience any drying effects.

  8. Megan Van Zyl (verified owner)

    I love this sunscreen. So hard to find one that doesn’t make my eyes sting. Would recommend trying this.

  9. megansmitfluffycows (verified owner)

    I’m going to be honest there’s alot better sunscreens out there
    From my experience this one piles and it leaves a white cast it makes your skin look very glowy though

  10. shreydayanand (verified owner)

    The consistency is great and it didn’t leave my skin feeling greasy but there is a slight white cast on my skin.

    The Kao Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ has become an essential part of my daily skincare routine. Its lightweight and watery texture feels incredibly comfortable on the skin, without leaving any white cast. The high SPF and PA ratings provide excellent protection against both UVA and UVB rays. What’s impressive is that it doesn’t feel heavy or greasy, making it perfect for daily wear. I love how easily it blends into the skin and doesn’t interfere with my makeup. This sunscreen is also formulated with hyaluronic acid and citrus essence, which adds a refreshing touch of hydration. If you’re looking for a reliable and comfortable sunscreen that offers both protection and comfort, the Kao Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel is a top choice

    This sunscreen left me with a white cast after rubbing it in for a long time.

  13. linesoxa (verified owner)

    Works very well on my oily skin. No white cast, and it absorbs fully.

  14. zandri (verified owner)

    Works well. Unfortunately rubs off white on clothing after application. Does not leave a cast on my pale complexion, although from time to time if not rubbed in properly, it can look streaky. I don’t think this would suit darker skin tones. Would rather opt for the other sunscreens available by Koa Biore.
