I bought this to get rid of blackheads on my nose, but it made me break out. I never break out on my nose. It kind of stings when you use it too. Overall just plain bad.
I bought this because of reviews I read online, bad mistake. I have acne prone skin and I still do, I bought it because it looks very nice and well made. After the first use it made my face extremely red but I thought it was because of my sensitive skin so I kept using it, not only did it not help with my acne problem it made it worse. I still have this and it's hardly used. It was a big waste of money. One of the main reason why I stop using over the counter acne treatments
I really like this product a lot. I use it whenever I have a little bit of acne and this gets rid of them real quick. Also really love the smell and the scrub is really gentle. Don't really like the cap because when I keep mine in the shower, water gets into the cap and always have to pour the water out....
I bought this product for about $10.99. I've used it for a few weeks now and so far its going alright. I wouldn't say I've had an absolute turn around in my pimples. This cleanser does make my face feel super clean once I've used it. The beads inside the mixture aren't harsh at all and provide a nice exfoliation. The cream formula itself, makes my skin feel extra minty and cool, which can either be good or bad depending on if you like this feeling. I think it is the menthol makes my skin feel all clean, I'm just hoping my skin is actually clean. The synthetic wax I believe makes my skin feel smooth, again I hope my skin is actually smooth. I like the smell of this product and I will continue using it.
UPDATE: Used in conjunction with the Biore Astringent, it's working fairly nicely. I have noticed fewer pimples (although I still have bumps) but I hope the trend continues!
I have oily skin with light to medium acne on my forehead. I bought this product three days ago and already my skin is almost completely clear. My routine is: in the morning use only cetaphil facial cleanser, at night use cetaphil facial cleanser and biore pore unclogging scrub, and four times a week use the queen helene mint julep mask. It works great! Definately buy this product!
This is good if you use it the right way. My routine: 1) Take off all makeup. 2) Wash hands 3) Apply this scrub to the whole face. Rub gently for 30 seconds. LET SIT. 4) Take off scrub with a warm cloth. Wash until all the lather and beads are gone. 5) Cream cleanser (Ponds).
This scrub is very creamy and a WHOLE LOT more gentle than my previous scrub, St-Ives Apricot Scrub. It feels really good on the skin because the beads aren't harsh and too big. This smells really good too. You'll know that you're using this scrub right when you feel the "icing" sensation on your face. I don't think there should be more exfoliating beads in this :S Anyway, my skin feels fresh, clean and really soft after every use. My pores are tight enough but not too much. Scrub isn't drying. I did use it everyday for maybe a week. Didn't make me break out. I now use it less frequently and it works just as fine. ± 10$ CDN
I don't know if I'm using this scrub the wrong way. The little scrubby things don't really exfoliate my skin and my nose still has clogged pores. And I've tried it with my face really wet, I've tried it with just wetting my face a little bit and my nose is still as clogged as it was. The salycilic acid has kept my acne at bay so that's why I don't regret buying this but I thought that this scrub would clear my nose and chin. I have to use ProActiv Refining Mask or an aspirin mask after steaming my face to see some results. This is more a cleanser than an actual scrub and I recommend it to maintain your acne under control but not for the purposes it claims.
Made me BREAK OUT!! I used it 2-3 times per week and at first I wanted to believe that this stuff was acting as a mini-facial...getting all of the junk out of my pores, in turn, making me break out. I thought I would give it a chance, but I was noticing that I was getting large zits...not little pimples that I would deal with for a little while, but I'm talking big honking zits. I really wanted to like this product, but it made my skin look horrible.
Smells good, and I really want to like it, but it just hasn't been doing anything for me. It makes my skin feel a bit dryer afterwards and it's like there's a film over my skin. Will not be buying again.
very good. get it. you will like it. biore makes all their products smell the smilar cucumber, melon... this scrub smellz like that if you had used their heating mask,... tha'z exactly what it smellz like. :-) biore's a good brand you should at least try one of their products ONCE most of the time they come with little samplez 2.
