Ah, summer. This is probably my most hated season in the entire universe. It makes me hot, sweaty, and sticky in so many unmentionable places on my body. Plus, the excruciating heat that it brings to my country… ugh, what a fucking nightmare.
Along with the unforgivable sun is the need to apply sunscreen. I know, I know. One should apply sunscreen regardless if it’s the summer time or not but sometimes, I just tend to forget, okay?
But I’ve been trying to be religious with the application lately. And this one from Bioré has been my go-to since 2015.
The Bioré UV Face Milk has an SPF of 50+ and PA++++ (not really sure what this means exactly but I’m guessing it’s good) and is by far the only sunscreen that did not make my face excessively sticky and oily. Also, it didn’t break me out which is always a great thing.
This product claims to protect our skin against sunburn and premature aging, plus control shine. And it has ultra light texture; effective shine control & moisturizing formula; and waterproof formula.
After almost three years of using this product, I’m still extremely happy with it and have repurchased it twice now. It’s such an amazing multi-functional thing that I not only use it as a sunscreen, I also think of it as a mattifying makeup primer because it does mattify my skin and it helps with a smoother makeup application because of its velvety texture (that’s similar to many makeup primers). It doesn’t help much with longevity of my base makeup, though, but I don’t really care.
Anyway, it’s summer (groan) and sunscreens are even more important this time of the year and I really highly recommend this product. It’s reasonably priced and one that would last you about a year of everyday use (if not more).
P.S. It’s Friday the 13th. Enjoy the Friday payday madness, folks!
