Keeping Skin Clean in Summer with Bioré Natural Charcoal Products - Review

I received products for review from Bioré®.  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.

Summer sweat, heat and humidity can certainly take a toll on skin. My face feels dirtier during the summer months than any other time of the year.  Bioré® has the perfect product for every type of skin, so you can stop worrying about your pores and start relaxing.

Bioré’s pore cleansing, acne fighting products come in liquid, bar, scrub, and strip forms to keep your skin clean and healthy – no matter what your style is.  I was able to recently review two Bioré skincare products from their charcoal cleanser line.

The Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar is infused with peppermint oil, natural charcoal, and exfoliating jojoba beads.  It's formulated to make skin smooth and clean.  It looks like a black bar of soap.  For best results, you are to wet hands with warm water and work bar into a white lather.  Then, massage lather across face and rinse.  There's no roughage from the bar, but I can slightly feel the exfoliating beads and it feels good.  I have the bar in my shower and clean my face with it during that time.

The Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser is formulated with natural charcoal, just like the bar.  It's intended to be used on the face to draw out dirt and impurities.  This cleanser works by pumping it into hands and working into a foam.  Massage over entire face, let it set for a few minutes, then rinse.

As far as preference, I'm more partial to the Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser.  That's because I find it to be more convenient to use and it's not as slippery as the charcoal bar.  Just like a bar of soap, the Charcoal Bar sometimes gets dropped in the tub.  I'm the only one who uses the Charcoal Bar, but the teens have also been using the Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser since it's in a pump bottle.  It's what I'd consider "gender neutral" and can be used by both girls and guys.  I've had no harsh effects or skin reactions from the bar or cleanser.  In fact, I can see and feel a true, deep clean after each use.

My daughter has used the cleanser and really likes it. I was afraid when I saw it that it would make a mess...but it doesn't.
