Bioré Deep Cleansing Pore Strips and Bioré Make-Up Removing Towelettes - Review

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 wear a lot of makeup. It's rare that you'll see me without it and I sometimes apply it several times a day. Because of that, I need a safe and effective product that will remove the makeup and dirt from my face. I don't necessarily mind using products that require me to wash by splashing water on my face but I've found that using Bioré Make-Up Removing Towelettes is easier.
As you can tell from the picture above, I didn't lie when I said I wear a lot of makeup. Bioré Make-Up Removing Towelettes allow me to remove makeup, sweat and dirt off my face easily and without causing skin irritation. The towelettes are pre-moistened. There's no preparation before or after for using them. One towelette cleans my entire face and I don't even have to rinse my face off afterwards. My skin feels real clean and I feel confident that impurities have been removed.

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.

Bioré products are known for helping keep your skin clean and beautiful. I've tried several of their skincare products and am a satisfied consumer.
