Biore is a well-established brand that develops various types of sunscreens to suit people’s needs and skin types. The Japanese brand under Kao Corporation is highly raved and popular among people as their products are affordable and very accessible in stores or online.
So today I’ll talk about another of my favourite to-go sunscreen which is Biore UV Perfect Protect Milk. This sunscreen is one of those that I often stock up on and is a staple in my handbag. I have already talked about my holy grail sunscreen before which is also from the same brand, Biore UV Perfect Milk. This UV Perfect Protect Milk sunscreen is no less than it actually, and because of that it’s easily becoming my other favourite after trying it.
Bioré UV Perfect Protect Milk protects the skin against harmful UVA and UVB rays. UVA penetrates deep into the skin and speeds up the aging process, while UVB causes sunburn. These rays are also reflective and can cause harm even if you’re under an umbrella, fully dressed, or indoors. Daily sunblock use is good practice as it contains Rice Germ Extract that makes skin softer, and Vitamin E to protect and repair skin. It is also comfortable to use as its non-sticky or greasy unlike other products. (KAO)

Looking at the ingredient lists, this sunscreen is actually a hybrid sunscreen.
Hybrid sunscreens have components of both physical and chemical sunscreen. They’re great because they offer the same coverage as chemical sunscreen and light like a physical sunscreen, but at the same time isn’t chalky or irritating on sensitive skin.
This sunscreen has 25ml volume in yellow mustard small plastic bottle. It is just a perfect size for travelling, and as for me, I’ll always put it in the makeup pouch in my handbag as I will reapply the sunscreen when I’m outside. This product comes with a narrow tip that allows you to control the amount of the sunscreen dispensed. The bottle cover automatically locks when you twist it, making it very secure to be kept in handbag as it will prevent the product from spilling out.
My experience and thoughts :
To be honest, this sunscreen almost has a same feel like my holy grail Biore UV Perfect Milk. It has a milky texture, very lightweight and easily blend into the skin, perfect to be used under makeup, and can even be used as a makeup base: all of those factors are more than enough for me to love it. 🤗 I love how it gives my skin the ‘alive look’, my dull skin looks radiant and glowing, sometimes I only use loose powder and am ready to go out.
I also love how this sunscreen makes my skin very soft. As I have mentioned before, it is also perfect as a makeup base, as it’s able to make my makeup look smooth and not chalky. It gives a kind of matte feeling. Given its lightweight texture, it’s not a problem to apply it layer by layer, as it does not leave a sticky feeling and absorbs beautifully into the skin.
This sunscreen smells a bit floral, and I would say it has less alcohol scent compared to other Biore sunscreens. Honestly the smell did not bother me so it’s bearable for me. The fact that this sunscreen is also able to cover my pores and redness is also another reason why I stick to this sunscreen.
Rate : 4.6/5.
I would say my oily skin really loves this kind of sunscreen. But on the other hand, people with dry skin will feel it’s a bit drying, so a well prepared and moisturized skin is a must before applying this sunscreen. Since this product also has alcohol, sensitive skin people should be careful too. But as for me, looking at its cheap price and how easy it is to get, I will continue to love it until I found something better or same quality like this with better value.
