Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence Botanical Peony Review

Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence is my ultimate Holy Grail sunscreen. I do not leave the house/ condo without putting this on. So when I found out that Bioré released a limited edition last Spring in Japan I did not have any second thoughts, I immediately purchased it.

Packaging: It’s the same packaging with a pink floral makeover. The light pink tube with the Peony illustration is very very pretty!

At first, I was uncomfortable putting this limited edition sunscreen on my face because the entire label is written in Japanese. I was worried I might miss some special instructions/ precautions for this product. Good thing for Google Translate App! The label was translated into English from Japanese, though not flawlessly, but I was able to get the gist.

It is confirmed by the torso), but it will drop off with usual soap, facial cleanser, body wash – Cut out with sugat, moisture – smoothly adheres to the skin, so even on makeup foundation Allergy tested (for all people Allergy does not occur.)

Scent: I have no idea what Peony smells like but this sunscreen has a nice sweet floral scent that lasts longer than I expected.

Performance/ Texture: Aside from the packaging and scent, the product is no different from the original. It’s still the same light-weight, hydrating, non-greasy formula that I love.

Price/Availability: The price is almost the same. I bought the limited edition for only P420 ($8.00). I don’t think the Peony Botanical version is available in stores here in the Philippines. I purchased this limited edition from an online store.

Final Thoughts: It’s my HG sunscreen with a floral/ girly twist, and I love it! I could have hoarded a lot of these but then I thought about the expiration date if I bought a lot at the same time. I’m sure Biore will release another limited edition of this next year. I can’t wait!
