Beautyknot ~ My Skin Care Diary

Archive for October 10th, 2010


When Biore Aqua Rich series launched in April 2010 here, it was out of stock in all retail points that I visited. The real reason behind was not fully known, either unpredictable hot-selling during launching or the difficulty of stock replenishment due to political turmoil in Bangkok downtown during that time. Anyway, the testers were available in stores for testing and I quite loved their light textures.



The consistency is indeed “aqua-rich”. It looks like an emulsion apparently but it actually has kind of watery feeling which would be melting on skin quickly. It feels slippery smooth and dewy while spreading it over skin, very refreshing and cooling.  The mild citrus scent is pleasant as well.



It leaves no white residue, no coverage of course, and it can be served as makeup base too, my powder foundation went on smoothly on top of it. However, it does not control oiliness that I need tissue blotting or touch up. For example, in similar weather and environment conditions, I might not need blotting or touch up with some sunblocks but I need that with this Aqua Rich Water Jelly. Besides, sometimes it gave me an oil zit on oily T-zone at the end of the day whenever I wear this prior to makeup. For these reasons, I am not sure if it suitable for oily facial skin. Furthermore, it is not very water nor sweat-resistant, quite inconvenient to re-apply if I wear makeup.



It retails for THB290/90ml in Thailand, I paid THB275/90ml during promotion. It can be used for both face and body, I particularly love it for body as I always use SPF15 for body skin, this (SPF30 PA+++) seems to provide higher protection for non-sweaty sun exposure. I would love to re-purchase for body use only.
