Manila Walking Tour | Walk Testing the New Biore UV Watery Gel Sunblock and Biore UV Perfect Spray: light, non-greasy sunblock for face and body
I never leave home without my mobile phone, credit card and sun block. These are my 3 essentials that would help me survive a long day in Manila.
People might not actually think of sun block as something essential. I have a long commitment with my
current previous sunblock brand that my friend calls liquid paper because it is watery and super light! Applying facial sunblock is part of my makeup routine.
But the truth is, I also tend to forget to (and get lazy in) apply(ing) sunblock in my body because the
current previous brands I have used tend to be sticky, greasy and thick that I felt it weighs me down.. That explains why I oftentimes afraid to wear shirts that would create a visible tan line on my arms whenever we do adventure under the sun.
During a recent Manila Walking Tour in Fort Santiago and Intramuros, I discovered a new sunblock brand and product. I was an instant convert!
I have heard about Biore a long time ago, but I was too faithful with my previous brand. Look at my situation like this - I have a commitment with a man who satisfies my needs that I don't dare look at another eligible bachelor (no matter how girls are going gaga over him).
Biore is the number 1 sunscreen brand in Japan! I was still being faithful with my current.
Thankfully, our friends at Digify organized a Manila Walking Tour to introduce the new products from Biore.
Super love the event invite ;)
Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel Sunblock Php 460
Biore UV Perfect Spray Php 299
Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence Php 420
Thank you for the tour and the patience :)
I received an invitation kit from Biore Philippines before the walking tour.
I used the new Biore UV Watery Gel and it feels like my current previous sun block. The consistency is like that of the primer and cc cream (Celeteque) that I use. It is easy to apply and absorbed. I have an oily skin and I don't want anything that feels too thick on my face.
This is what happens when you don't use sunblock. Boys, use sunblock too!
After the first leg of our walking tour, it is nice that the ladies also feel the same way about the new Biore UV Watery Gel. You have to listen to @_phyliciamarie as she gets technical with ingredients ;) That's her specialization :)
Rain or shine, we got protection
Love how dedicated she is at vlogging!
The new Biore UV Watery Gel has "aqua micro capsules" that makes it lighter than regular sunscreen. It also has SPF 50+ and PA ++++.
For my body, I use the Biore UV Perfect Spray. I prefer sprays over lotion because it is easier to apply and doesn't give a funky streak on my skin. One of the reasons I tend to be lazy at applying sunblock is because of the time I spend evening out the lotion :D (what a lazy excuse, I know!)
Ready for the walking tour around Fort Santiago
Not afraid to wear torn/distressed jeans because I still got even skin tone after the tour
Some sunblock sprays, however give that oily, greasy and heavy feel on the skin (as if you are out on a beach and surfing!). I instantly fell in love with the Biore UV Perfect Spray because it feels light and is quickly absorbed. We were out half day in Manila and you could imagine that we would be sweaty (and argh, I hate the feel of sweat and heavy lotion!). I didn't get that feeling when I used the Biore UV Perfect Spray. I re-applied and it feels like using a facial mist because of its cooling effect on my skin. It gives sun protection and hydrates the skin too. I heard that Biore UV Perfect Spray is available for a LIMITED TIME only. I need to hoard!!!
My vision. But you get the picture? ;)
I really enjoyed the Manila Walking Tour. I wish we had more time to explore though. More than learning about the new Biore products, I learned more about the Philippine history. I really love experiential events and launches like this. Thank you Digify and Biore for having me!
