UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence Sunscreen SPF50+ PA+++
4.0

I have dry skin so I save this sunblock for Summer or when I travel to hot and humid weather. It’s very lightweight and the price is great. However, it’s too drying on my skin in the cooler months.


UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence Sunscreen SPF50+ PA+++

Love this sunscreen - so lightweight, doesn't leave tracks on your skin, and I actually am really into how it smells (usually NOT into any kind of fragrance unless it's super mild). No real complaints and will likely continue repurchasing unless I find something better. This has replaced LaRoche Posay sunscreen for me, which now feels heavy/greasy in comparison.

Pore Cleansing Strip - Cherry Blossom

These work just as well, if not better, than the regular Biore pore cleansing nose strips. These ones have a cute pink cherry blossom pattern and are also cherry blossom scented. It's a nice light floral scent. I've been using Biore Pore Cleansing nose strips for years now, and have had no negative effects. My nose is a little red afterwards, which is normal and gone by morning. It doesn't hurt too much to pull it off unless I get it too far up onto the sensitive skin under my eyes. I don't really get blackheads, but I have very visible sebaceous filaments. For many people these filaments don't cause issues, but if you have big pores or oily skin like me they become more visible, so I use this strip to clear them out. I use one once a week after I have washed my face and used Freeman's Charcoal & Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask. After I started using this mask I noticed the strips were pulling out a lot more stuff. I also found they work better when my nose isn't dripping wet, but just damp with warm water. I put it on starting from the middle and then smoothing it down the sides of my nose, really making sure there are no creases and that it is really smoothed down. I almost massage it down a bit when its in place, kind of just rubbing it on to make sure it really grabs on to everything. With the cherry blossom one, if you rub in on too much though, the flower pattern smudges into a pink blur. I let it sit for 10 min. and I try not to move my face at all while it dries (no talking, laughing, ect.). Then I very slowly peel off each side to the bridge of my nose, almost at a slightly upwards angle, and then peel downwards along the middle. There's always a bunch of stuff on the strip and my nose always feels cleaner. I use a wet cloth to gently wipe off anything left behind and apply my toner. I'd say they're worth trying. This was a fun seasonal product that I would buy again.
