Hi! Assalamualaikum. I’m back for another post! As you can read from the title, today I will be reviewing a sunblock. Lately, there are many people aware the importance of using sunblock. So today I will be reviewing one of the most rave sunblock in the social media nowadays – Biore UV Perfect Protect Milk. Keep continue reading if you are interested to know more.

[Review]
Biore UV
Perfect Protect Milk 50 PA+++


I bought this sunblock at Watson which normally cost around RM 17. 40 each, but at the moment, they have a promotion, buy second (2nd) bottle for only RM 0.10, so RM 17.50 for 2 bottles. Yeah, what a great deal, right? And why not, since so many people rave about this. It must be good, but I just have to try myself because different people has different skin type with different skin condition too thus, definitely each product works differently from one another. I have experienced of few times tried products wihich people said it is really good or them, but it just does not work for me.



What It Claims:

Bioré UV Perfect Block 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.

Avoid premature aging, pigmentation & dry skin.
Non Sticky and absorb easily
Rice Germ Extract, Vitamin E – moisturize skin
Anti-bacteria formulation
Floral fragrance.

Talc - Comedogenic Rating – 1


How to Use It:
Use it at the last step for skincare and before you start your makeup. Use two (2) fingers method to measure how much you need for each application.




Personal Review:
It has SPF 50+ PA+++ has already wow me. I usually tend to grab sunblock that has SPF 30 and above, personally it makes me feel ensure that I have protected my skin well. To those who don’t know what the meaning of SPF is and the ++++ means, here you go:

SPF – Sun Protection Factor which it has the ability to shield from the UVB rays (cause burning, darkening skin). The level of SPF determine level of protection from UVB rays. Usually skin starts to burn about 10-20 minutes after exposure so if you are using SPF 20, it will protect your skin 20 times longer. It is recommended to reapply every 2 – 4 hours.

PA – PA Rating/Grading is the level of protection from UVA rays. More + means more protection as UVA penetrates deeper in the skin.
PA+ = there are protection against UVA rays
PA++ = moderate protection against UVA rays
PA+++ = commonly the best protection against UVA rays.
PA++++ = highest protection against UVA rays

UVA - penetrates deep into the skin, and may lead to premature skin aging and cancer.
UVB - radiation is responsible for the color change in your skin after spending time outdoors—your tan or sunburn is a direct result of UVB rays



Even though it is in milk form, but it is quite runny. Easy to blend. Absorb nicely into my skin. It really takes just a second to fully absorb into my skin and it absorbs so well. At my first impression, yes it does absorb nicely to my skin, but after using for few days I found out that, it has white casts left on my skin especially if I didn't blend it well. Dah la my skin quite tan, so it became quite obvious. It dried down matte on my skin, so for a dry skin like mine, I'm kinda not liking this, but not totally hate this too. It just that if I want to keep using this sunblock, I have to properly moisturize my skin if not, it will surely feels quite matte and dry. 

At my first impressions, it sits well under my makeup. But as I tried again and again with different foundations, face primers and other makeup stuff, I do find that, it is hard to make my makeup (especially skin & complexion) to look smooth and nice. Some makeup sits well on tops of this sunblock, I had hard times with most of my makeups with this sunblock underneath. Since I have a dry skin and dry patches on my skin, having a matte finished sunblock acccentuates my dry patches more. 

Furthermore, I found that, I unable to layer any more hydrating primers or runny/liquid makeup products after this sunblock as it will starts to product piling. Product piling or also known as product balling is a situation where you layering products on your skin, but the more you layer the products and the more you rub it the more you will produce a lot of 'dead skin'. This piling or balling happened because of the two (2) products that you used are not compatible to each other. That's why you found 'dead skin' which is actually not your dead skin, it just the products are not compatible. 

I have another hit or miss with this sunblock with my skin, it is also waterproof and sweat-proof. For normal days, I dont think I need waterproof  sunblock, haha bukan nak kena berenang pun. And I don't sweat that much most of the time and I do my flower arrangements in air-conditioner room. And when you are using sunblock with waterproof and sweat-proof, you need to remove it thoroughly or else it is going to clog your pores.  It is also only contains 25 ml and the consistency is quite runny, so I’m afraid I’m going to finish this a lot sooner than usually I did with my other sunblock.

This sunblock in my skin care steps, I am totally okay with it, but having it sits under my makeup -I hate it. So I will only using it if I am not planning to wear any makeup. 

Overall opinion:
Do I like it?
Yeah at first, but No finally - it doesn't do well with my makeup. Yes if I am using skincare only, but no with makeup. 

Will I re-purchase it?
50-50 maybe yes maybe no.

Do I recommend it?
No to those have skin like mine. Yes to more normal to oily skin type.
