I received the new Biore Skin Caring Facial Foam in the Extra Moist and Scrub variants for review sometime back.
I’m sure many of you are familiar with Biore. I’m a fan of their makeup removers and I’ve used their facial foams back in my teenage days. Having tried many different type of cleansers over the years, it’s a good chance for me to try out the new formulation from the brand.
I’ve picked the Extra Moist as working in the office means being under air con for at least 9 hours a day. My skin needs all the moisture it can get. The texture of this cleanser is creamy and foams easily. I like it that my face don’t feel tight after using this for cleansing. I use this once every day in the morning.
Here’s a before photo of me before using the Biore cleansers. Shiny T-zone and rough pores around the cheek areas.
After using for two weeks. I felt that my skin is more moist and hence produces lesser sebum. The roughness around the pores has been reduced and the skin felt smoother. (Pardon the few zits as I was breaking out from heatiness)
The scrub does not feels like a scrub to me. The microbeads are so fine that you can’t feel it when you apply this on your skin. However, every time I used this I can feel that my skin have just been through a good scrub and feels so much smoother. For those with sensitive skin, I would highly recommend this scrub for daily use! I use this once everyday at night.
The new formulation comes with the Skin Purifying Technology which prevents chemicals from penetrating into the skin during the cleansing process. It’s cleansing abilities is also much higher. With this technology, sensitive skin users can use this series with ease.
The other two variants in the series includes Mild for normal to combination skin and Acne for blemish prone skin.
I think the most prominent improvement I’ve observed after using the Biore cleaners would be reduction of sebum which also means skin is more moist and smoother skin.
(*Dehydrated skin often leads to more production of sebum and results in oily skin)
I would rate the Extra Moist a 3.5/5 and the scrub a 4/5.
