You want a whole skin care package. Maybe one of the best things about Proactiv is it’s a complete skin care product. You get the cleanser, toner, and treatment lotion all in one kit. You could come up with a similar regular with products from the drugstore, but if you’d rather take the guesswork out of it, Proactiv makes it easy.

Basically, from pale up to your standard East Asian appearance. It’s a fairly natural beige that is supposed to balance out your skin firmness and make it appear clearer and brighter. And, boy oh boy, brighter it does. Just like a Korean pop superstar three years ago. You want dewy and watery? You’re going to obtain it.

Basically, this sunscreen will turn your face into a wet-looking, bright disco ball. Yeah, yeah, I understand they said that “essence” and “Aqua Rich”. Well, fuck. They lied. That the sunscreen applies like water, it generally does not mean it’s going to act like drinking water. Though, wait, it does actually! Water evaporates and your skin ends up feeling dry.

In my case all of this sunscreen did, aside from turning me into a glowing supernova, was dried out my face out more than I thought possible. And believe me, I have dry skin. I know what “dry” means. In many ways, that’s still a noticeable difference within the Biore milks. AFTER I washed it off at the end of the day, my skin sensed dried out, but it wasn’t red. Yeah, they say it works as a makeup base.

Maybe it can. For someone else. For me personally, it didn’t. The rolling and pilling exquisite were. The thing that did work was powdering the shine away and calling it a day. Seriously. I simply can not be bothered. Add the fact that this thing is not sweat- nor waterproof and I seriously question why people even buy this shit. And Biore is constantly on the make it. We get 33 grams of the low goodness and based on the directions, we’re supposed to use about 1.5 cm in diameter.

  • Organic dried out witchhazel leaves
  • Professionnel Platinum Lip Brush #61
  • Red Cherry Lashes
  • Roughly 1/2 glass of extra virgin olive essential oil
  • Avoid salicylic acidity with products that contain niacinamide

And it can have an aroma. It’s not especially unpleasant, but it’s there. I’m presently dealing with the mom of all hay fevers, so whatever smell this product has, it didn’t bother me whatsoever. Saint Ratzilla of the Sunscreens (significantly, she should be nominated for sainthood on her behalf translation work) has the substances for you. UVA2 and UVA1 and UVB safety.

And you know what? I don’t brain the glow. Actually, I like it quiet. I also like the consistency quite. I love that it doesn’t make me any redder than I am. I don’t mind that it didn’t work with makeup for me personally. This sunscreen, because so many “whitening” skincare in Japan is considered a quasi-drug here. What this means is it must list the active ingredient first, and the rest then. And here we’ve an interesting difference between Japan and the united states. In Japan, sunscreen is known as a cosmetic, not a drug.

In the united states it is a medication. So when you get an American sunscreen, the substances shown will be UV blockers and UV absorbers. Not in Japan. And that’s the reason this sunscreen lists chamomile remove as its active ingredient. Because what makes it a quasi-drug is not the UV preventing / absorbing properties, but its whitening claim.
