Biore UV Perfect Face Milk SPF 50

Biore UV Perfect Face Milk SPF50If you’re looking for an affordable and effective sunblock, Biore UV Perfect Face Milk SPF 50+ PA+++  makes the mark.

It’s liquid based, being milky in texture but is ultra light leaving a sheer natural finish with no white residue nor sticky feel.  Because Biore UV Perfect Face Milk SPF 50+ PA+++ containts sebum-absorbing powder to control oil and shine, skin actually feels powdery upon application.  Yet, this sunblock does not clog up pores, works well as a makeup base with the face staying shine free for a good part of the day.

I use this indoors on some days although most of the time, I apply it as a sunblock for the hand because I like the non-sticky feel.  It has quite a pleasant fragrance but those who are allergic to alcohol in their skincare might want to avoid this product as it contains that.

Biore UV Perfect Face Milk SPF 50+ comes in a 30ml small bottle, contains both zinc oxide and titanium dioxide which provide adequate protection according to the following rating compiled by Environmental Protection Agency, yet is readily available over the counters at only around S$11.  


And from what I’ve read at the forums, several ladies who have used this were equally impressed.


  1. Irene says:

    Where do you buy this from??

    Irene: You can get it from the supermarkets like NTUC and if I’m not wrong, the pharmacies as well.

  2. ashes says:

    Really tempted to try this after reading but when you mentioned allergic, I got scared as you know when come to my face I got to be extra careful. But I feel this is a gd recommendation which I will intro my sis coz she is looking ard for this. ?

    Ashes: Ya, be careful. If you sis buy, you can try on your lower jaw to see if got reaction.

  3. abbygeyl says:

    yeah, this product is really good… i had breaks outs on my face because of the cream i was using before but when i changed it with this product, the result was great… my face gets whiter & it doesn’t leave an oily appearance. no powder needed…

    thumbs up for this product!!

    abbygeyl: Glad it worked for you. It’s good if your skin isn’t the dry type because this product does contain alcohol.

  4. linlin says:

    hey may i know when i use it on face, can i immediately use revlon colour stay makeup with softflex with spf 15 normal/dryskin?

    linlin: You should be able to since this sunscreen settles very quickly into the skin without leaving a sticky residue.

  5. Naima says:

    is this product recommended for people of color? if so, will it help reduce unwanted tans?

    Naima: Hi, everyone should be able to use this but I doubt it will reduce unwanted tans. The UVB protection might help to prevent darker tans though.

  6. linlin says:

    if i used it, do i need to use makeup remover to wash away or just normal water?

  7. linlin says:

    and even use it at home? how many times can i use for a day.

    linlin: You can wear this at home too. No problem. Unless you’re out, there is no need to reapply. Otherwise, you should try to reapply at least once in the day. As for cleansing, normal cleanser works. But take note that this sunscreen contains alcohol, which can be drying. Not recommended for those with dry or sensitive skin.

  8. audrey says:

    erm, what should i use for pimples scar? i need help.

    audrey: Tea tree oil? It’s supposedly good for pimple or acne as well as the scars. Personally, I find rose hip oil useful for this too.

  9. audrey says:

    what brand and where can i get it from too?

    audrey: I can’t remember any brands offhand but if you check out the pharmacies, you should be able to find them. I know Body Shop also carries some tea tree products but I don’t know what are they specifically. I’ll try to take a look sometime this week and if I can find out, I’ll post the info here again.

  10. audrey says:

    tea tree oil is for normal wash face?

    Audrey: Tea Tree Oil is an ingredient used in creams, ointments, lotions, soaps, and shampoos. It’s known to be a good antiseptic, effective for treating acne. Maybe I’ll write some info on it in another entry soon.

  11. audrey says:

    okay! thanks. hope to see your replys soon.

  12. Lea says:

    Can it be used on body too? Like arms, legs, neck etc.

    Lea: Yes, I use them on my hands.

  13. strawberrie says:

    hihi…may I know whether i can apply it under my eyes?

    strawberrie: No, please don’t apply it under or around your eyes.

  14. momo san says:

    There are 3 series of them. How to differentiate them?

    momo san: Oh dear, I haven’t been keeping a lookout for them. I know there is one for face (blue color bottle) and one for both face & body (white color bottle) but what’s the third one? I tried both and they’re almost similar in texture.

  15. Aerin says:

    Oh, um, about the allergies, I don’t think it’s just alcohol. I could just be hypersensitive (I am), but while I don’t have a history of being allergic to alcohol, I did get a slightly painful rash while using this, and I didn’t really like the texture either because I felt that the “powdery” texture was somewhat unnatural.

    Aerin: It’s probably the formulation that gave you the allergic reaction. I know what you mean about the powdery texture being unnatural. I’ve came across several comments from others who don’t like such a feel too, whether the product contains alcohol.

  16. diena says:

    Aiii…I think u get it wrong. The white bottle is for face only while blue bottle is for face & body. I bought the blue one coz white bottle out of stock. Wanna try since u rave bout it :).Hope its as good as wut i said

    Diena: Okay, I probably got confused with the color of the bottle…well, hope it’ll work for you.

  17. Zonya says:

    I extremely recommend this product. It’s the most efficient sunblock I’ve used! No stickly,I suggested all my friends to use it and they said that it was miracle!

  18. Jadetive says:

    Ooh, I love this sunblock. I just got it from Watsons, now on discount for S$10+. It applies so smoothly and I’m so not used to it, because I usually use sunblocks with a thicker, greasier consistency. But it’s good! ?

    Jadetive: Yes, the formulation is quite matt upon application. Rather nice.

  19. Violety says:

    Hey, may I just check with you whether or not it’s like a cosmetic which I need to clean off with makeup remover at the end of the day? Or just washing off with a facial cleanser will do?

    Violety: If you use it by itself without makeup, you can just use a facial cleanser. No need to use makeup remover.

  20. Lia says:

    Hi, I’m from the US. Do you have any idea where I can get this? Thanks! =)

    Lia: Have you tried ebay?

  21. valene says:

    Hey I’m using the white bottle and I love it too! Feels smooth upon application. However, it’s stated to be waterproof so I’d recommend using a makeup remover to clean it off, contrary to what you said about normal cleanser. There’s also a pink version which is supposed to make your skin more radiant. ?

    BTW this sunblock was recommended in NRWZD!

  22. sesame says:

    I feel that normal cleanser is able to do the job for me cos it didn’t feel sticky. But perhaps also because I double cleanse – remove with oil cleanser then foaming wash.

  23. Mint says:

    Hi I find it very hard to remove the biore waterproof sunblock. Believe me i have tried cleansing wipes, make up remover follow by double cleansing or baby oil followed by double cleansing. None really fully cleansed the sunblock from my face. When i used my fingers to lightly ran it thro my face i can feel white substance stick to inside of my fingers. Meaning still not clean hmmm really tiring….

  24. sesame says:

    It doesn’t sound like the one I’ve tried. You need to use a special cleanser then. I know Shiseido has a sunblock like this and it uses a special cleanser.

  25. Mint says:

    Im using the Biore sunblock (white bottle & blue bottle) both are equally hard to completely removed. Bummer cos its really grease free which lasts me thro out the day

  26. flora says:

    i hv acne prone skin, is the blue bottle suitable and safe to use? when re-apply, is it alright to apply on the skin without cleansing, wouldn’t dirt be trapped within?

  27. sesame says:

    I haven’t seen the ingredients so not too sure…as for re-applying, yes, it might be a problem if your skin is dirty.

  28. makomako says:

    I think there is another type, which is pink in colour (the bottle). I saw it in guardian. In fact, I didnt see either the blue or the white bottle

    does any one know if this pink bottle ok to use for the face? ><

  29. rachel says:

    all the bottles are meant for the face except the blue one. The blue one is for both face and body.

  30. Nemo says:

    Dear girls,
    I just bought this Biore UV perfect face milk white colour bottle which mentioned oil absorbed.Just share with you my value feedback after applied, I feel from morning until whole day my face is smooth, it’s great make up foudation. I use to use BB cream bought from Pinky shop cost $47, but after wear for half day, my face is so oily. I am combination skin more to oily and blemish. Thus this Biore UV is suitable for me.I will use it without apply BB cream, and put a bit blush on my face before go work. Today my face look clean and smooth, non-greasy. Maybe dried skin need to put some moisturise to avoid too dry.

  31. Nemo says:

    and using this, the skin colour is nice. I shouldnt put any foudation. Just wondering at night , should I apply if go outing? or need to replace with face powder?

  32. sesame says:

    Yes, if your skin is not well moisturized, it will try to produce more oil to compensate for the lack of it.

  33. sesame says:

    No need to use SPF product in the night.

  34. mOnOnO says:

    Yes, this is really a very gd sunscreen especially the pink color bottle…

  35. dr1223 says:

    yes, i used the pink one too. It’s good! My face feels matte and less oily than before but should i use a makeup remover to remove it after wearing the sunblock for a day?.

    My sis says it’s not advisable to use sun block every day. Is this true?

  36. sesame says:

    You can use sunblock daily but it depends on the ingredients. Biore’s contain alcohol and might be drying for the skin when used long term.

  37. outgrown says:

    this sunblk has alcohol!!!

  38. bee says:

    hey thanks for reviewing this. i live in thailand and i just found this product in watsons and boots and i’m gonna try it. i have a very oily face, which one should i use this Biore UV Perfect Milk or Biore UV Aqua Rich? thanks before..
