these three ingredients.

to Use It:

as the last step in your day skincare routine and reapply throughout the day. Use
two (2) fingers method or ¼ teaspoon for each application.

& Price:

blue and white stripes squeezable tube with white screw cap. RM 35 for 50g (as
of date).


packaging is so cute and beautiful. The nozzle is quite big so be careful when
you squeeze the products. Price wise, in my opinion is affordable.


yellowish gel texture and when applied no white cast visible. The gel felt a
bit thick when applied, and it gave ‘cooling’ sensation which I don’t really
appreciate – it indicate that it has menthol in it. It doesn’t spread or blend
easily as well.

kind of separates when I tried to blend it in and it does takes time to blend
into my skin. At first it has slightly sticky finish right after I blend it but
once it is set, it has satin like finishing which I think under makeup would be


has strong alcohol and mint scent which not my favourite. Quite overwhelming for
me. I think it is due to the high alcohol in it and Alcohol stated as the
second ingredient in the ingredients list. The minty scent might come from
Menthol in this sunscreen, so people with sensitive skin, I suggest to skip
this sunscreen from your wish lists


I think this sunscreen would be okay if you can tolerate with alcohol and
menthol. Iif you have oily or combination skin, you might like this one but if
you have sensitivity towards alcohol and menthol better avoid this. I really don’t
enjoy wearing this at all. It feels thick, I am bothered with the strong
alcohol and menthol scent. The cooling sensation makes me feels like it will
burn my skin even though it hasn’t. So the whole experience is a no-no for me.

I prefer the original Biore UV Aqua Rich (blue
packaging) rather than this one since it doesn’t contain menthol. So if between
the original Biore UV Aqua Rich and the Aqua Rich Cool, I would buy the
original (blue) instead of this one, but still in my opinion the original is
not that great for me but it is still better than this one.

If you use this make sure that you thoroughly removes
it. I find it feels thick and I can feel the sunscreen layer on my skin. As
they claimed it has high resistance to sweat and water, I believe you might
need to use oil cleanser to remove it while using micellar water only may not
be enough to remove it. Please make sure to remove it thoroughly especially if
you are a Muslim since it has high resistance to water, so wuduk’ nanti tak sah

Even though it feels thick on my skin so far it hasn’t
piling with any moisturizers that I use with. The SPF and the PA rating is at exactly
where I want my sunscreen to be and I love it doesn’t have any white cast on my
skin. Too bad I don’t enjoy wearing it. You should find the sunscreen that you
enjoy applying it so that you are looking forward to reapply throughout the day
and keep wearing it every day.
