I'm so happy I bought this! Got it for half off at a buy one get one half off sale at walgreens otherwise it would be 8 bucks. I didnt read the reviews first before buying, but I new I'd like it anyway because I always get the biore pore strips and I like those!
I use this daily and in the shower it makes my skin FEEl like the pores are opening up. I would buy this again just for that amazing feeling :)
It really wakes me up and gets me off to a great start.
I've only just started using this - and my skin feels nice and soft so far! It smells really good too, and I've seen it recommended in magazines such as Cosmo australia. Fingers crossed!
I first started using this when I was 18, and it worked really well for me. HOWEVER, it is now three years later, and this product no longer has an effect on me. I've tried to stick with this since it cleared up my face so well in the past, but now that my skin is maturing I think the formula has done all the work it could have. Also, if you see on the labels now it says that is supposedly works like 80% better than Proactive or some crap like that, and that is total bologna. This product may have worked on my teenage skin, but if you're older and you want something to unclog your pores (which it didn't do for me, I saw no difference) then please look for something else!
If you have combination skin, beware.
I bought this because I needed something to get all the makeup and oil and junk off my face at the end of the day. Well, after the first use, I thought, 'ooh, my skin feels so nice and soft!'.....BUT....that was the end of anything positive. Within 2 or 3 days of using this scrub, my face had broken out in these really ugly dry patches!! It was these dry, scaly, flakey patches on my cheeks. It was really bad. I'm not even kidding. Of course I couldn't put makeup on them. Gaah..it looked terrible! Maybe it's my fault for having combination skin (I only get oily and icky in the t-zone)...idk though. I have never used an acne product that did this to my skin!
I also want to add, that after using this, my oily areas didn't even feel completely cleansed. Also, there's hardly any 'exfoliating beads' in there. So I doubt it even unclogs pores.
So yeah, procede with caution.
It smells nice though, lmao.
I tried this a year or so ago while I was combating a bad breakout. I went through one and a half tubes before I had to concede to my acne.
This stuff was making my face even worse.
The exfoliating beads are gentle enough but there is way too much wax in this stuff for the Salicylic acid or beads to be any help with exfoliation or breakouts. Also that "tingly" feeling is just your cells screaming from all the irritating, reddening and utterly pointless inclusion of menthol.
This MIGHT be a good exfoliator used once a month, but there's better stuff out there. Save your money.
started to use this product a few days ago...the beads are not very good at exfoliating so i use it with a facial buffing sponge. I have personally noticed that it loosens dirt in my pores and they look less noticeable even after a few days. I love the smell and the fresh clean feeling after washing my face with it. The tingling sensation is comfortable and the product is not overly drying.
With this product, it is either a hit or a miss with people who use it. For me it was a miss. I've been using this product for a month and a half and it did nothing for me. It did not clear up my breakouts and it definetly did not help prevent anymore breakouts because I got a more spots during the time I've used this. I should have known not to buy another biore product because I find that their products are ineffective for me. Even though the product was horrible for me, I gave it a 2 because it smells nice and the beads aren't rough on your skin. Also, the packaging is very nice and it is clear so you can see how much you've used. The only reason I'm still using this scrub is because I don't want to waste it but honestly I can't wait until I'm done with it.
pros: feels nice and cool on my face. visible results in 1 week. exfoliated nicely and i have found that my pores were a little smaller.
cons: nothing except i was expecting just little more exfoliating beads
This didn't unclog my pores and did nothing for acne/blackheads. At least it didn't irritate.
This product just didn't work for me. It actually made my face worse!
I found it was quite harsh on my skin, and didn't nothing to treat or prevent my acne.. I got even more in the process. I did finish the tube b/c I don't like to waste products that aren't completely terrible, but I wouldn't repurchase this again.
The only positive is the smell, which could actually make your naseous after awhile..
