Biore - Skin Products Review

I recently held a giveaway for Biore and five lucky winners were selected to receive the Warming Anti-Blackhead Cleanser and the Deep Cleansing Pore Strips.  I hope the winners are as happy with Biore as I am, as I recently got to try the same products.  In case you are unfamiliar with the brand, Biore products are known for helping keep your skin clean and beautiful. 
I don't normally get blackheads but they pop up once in a while.  My teenage girls get them more often, so all three of us have tried the Warming Anti-Blackhead Cleanser.  The warming cleanser takes away buildup and oil and has a special mineral clay that warms on contact with water. It also contains Salicylic acid, a powerful yet gentle ingredient that penetrates pores to help fight breakouts by dissolving clogged oil.

As far as effectiveness, it does a pretty decent job at cleansing our faces and removing any makeup or dirt.  I wouldn't say it completely gets rid of blackheads but it does clear them up for the most part and seems to keep them from resurfacing as often.  The slightly warm feeling on the face once it's applied makes it feel like its working on the skin to get rid of uncleanliness.   


The Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips are intended to lift out stubborn dirt and oil.  Tea tree oil cleanses skin and rids pores of bacteria as witch hazel reduces redness and inflammation. Menthol minimizes redness and provides a tingling cooling sensation that signals a deep clean.

The pore strips are odd in a cool sort of way.  They are to be applied on the bridge of the nose after you've cleaned your face and it's still wet.  When it's applied, the strip feels like a flimsy, thin piece of adhesive.  Just ask my husband, it is a little strange to see someone walking around with something that looks like gauze slapped on your nose.  But it doesn't make me no mind.  Ten minutes is the recommended time for the pore strip to be left on.  While it's sitting on your face, it will start to harden like paper mache.  It's at that time the strip is ready to be taken off. 

It's not an all out hurt, but there is some slight pain when taking the pore strip off.  It's comparable to taking a band-aid off the skin.  Once you successfully get the strip off, you can see the results by taking a peek at the strip.  It's not the grossest of sights but you can see where little tiny hairs, blackheads, and dirt have come off with the strip.  The effectiveness is evident.  

In comparison to the two products, the Deep Cleansing Pore Strips are my favorite.  But as a total, I like them both and find them both to work quite well.

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

I used to use the Biore Strips and liked them. I'm not sure why I stopped using them, so maybe I will pick some up the next time I am at the store.
