Sunscreen -Bioré -UV Perfect Face Milk SPF 50+ PA++++ (New 2014)

on 9/22/2018 4:51:00 AM


Japanese sunscreens always are the best. I’ve been using this brand for years and tried many of the formulas. One of the best and worth buying. It’s non irritating and good for my very oily skin, and it also helps with a light primer before makeup so you don’t have to put another layer of primer. Best for a very bright hot sunny day.

Sunscreen -Bioré -UV Aqua Rich Whitening Cream SPF 50+ PA+++

on 9/7/2018 11:22:00 AM


This sunscreen is an amazing primer if you wear makeup. It is quite siliconey, so if you don't like that feeling, you'll hate it. I like it. Your makeup will just glide on and look beautiful. It does have a rather strange smell, almost rubbery. And it only comes in 30ml, which is a shame. It goes on really nicely, leaves your skin with a very natural and beautiful finish. I wouldn't repurchase it because of the size. I could even get over the smell, but I finished it in just a week and it's pretty pricey for its size.
It says it's whitening, but I haven't seen a brightening effect, to be honest.

Sunscreen -Bioré -UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence Sunscreen SPF50+ PA+++

It has an amazing texture, goes on very smoothly and without any streaks or white cast. It absorbs very quickly into the skin. The major downside is the very, very powerful alcohol smell. I don't think I have ever tried a sunscreen that smelled so much like alcohol. It doesn't irritate my skin or my eyes, but the smell does bother me. I think this would also be drying for people with dry skin. I have normal skin and it does sometimes feel a bit tight when wearing this.
So, 10/10 for texture and cosmetic elegance, but 2/10 for the alcohol.

Skincare - Face -Bioré -skin boosting night serum

on 9/6/2018 10:17:00 AM


I used this product Probably about 5 times now. I like the thick texture of it and gives a lot of full coverage. I also put it on my neck & chest. The product a bit thicker than other serums glides on skin and feels soft. I try several face serums & oils. I do prefer nicer packaging. That's what I feel this product is lacking. I would definitely recommend this to somebody.If they wanted something economical & effective.

Treatments (Face) -Bioré -Pore Cleansing Strips - Nose

on 9/6/2018 9:39:00 AM


I've been using the regular Biore Pore Cleansing nose strips for years now, and have had no negative effects. My nose is a little red afterwards, which is normal and gone by morning. I doesn't really hurt to pull it off unless I get it too far up onto the sensitive skin under my eyes. I also sneeze after I take it off because it tickles my nose a bit.

I don't really get blackheads, but I have very visible sebaceous filaments (which many people mistake as blackheads). For many people these filaments don't cause issues, but if you have big pores or oily skin like me they become more visible, so I use this strip to clear them out.

I use one once a week after I have washed my face and used Freeman's Charcoal & Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask. After I started using this mask I noticed the strips were pulling out a lot more stuff. I also found they work better when my nose isn't dripping wet, but just damp with warm water. I put it on starting from the middle and then smoothing it down the sides of my nose, really making sure there are no creases and that it is really smoothed down. I almost massage it down a bit when its in place, kind of just rubbing it on to make sure it really grabs on to everything. I let it sit for 15 min. and I try not to move my face at all while it dries (no talking, laughing, ect.). Then I very slowly peel off each side to the bridge of my nose, almost at a slightly upwards angle, and then peel downwards along the middle. There's always a bunch of stuff on the strip and my nose always feels cleaner. I used a wet cloth to gently wipe off anything left behind.

I follow this right away by applying my toner, and especially take care to go over where the strip was.

I'd say they're worth trying.
