For some reason I was drawn to this stuff and really wanted to try it. I have used it for 2 days now and I have to stop using it already. I like the packaging, easy to use and a big bottle for not that big a price and I didn't need a lot of product, so this bottle will last ages. When I put it on my face it tingles and makes my eyes tear, there is too much menthol in it, feels like putting toothpaste on my face. Washing it off isn't very easy, after rinsing thoroughly I still felt like there was product on my face, so I used my scrub afterwards. Face felt very clean! But when I came out of the shower and headed for the mirror to slap on some much needed moisturizer, my face was all red and irritated. It also itched and burned a bit. Thank god my eucerin 5% urea miracle worker could calm it down, after an hour or so most of the redness was gone. I don't dare using it again this evening or tomorrow, so I bought my old friend vichy normaderm again. This biore is just so harsh on my skin... I will try using it maybe once or twice a week and see what it does, will update about that later. But for everyday use this is a big nono.
Background info: I always used to have sensitive skin that would respond quickly to almost everything with red patches and irritation. Since I started using the earlier mentioned eucerin I don't have any problems with that anymore, if anything my skin gets oily on the t-zone. Never had the red patches anymore, but I'm sure I will get them again from this Biore, even with my Eucerin.
Update few days later:
It took a few days for all of the redness to disappear. I am a stubborn person, so I decided to continue using this only on my t-zone, which is the only oily zone on my face. And now it also is the only zone on my face where I have many teeny tiny bumps! I never had this, I do get an occasional pimple every once in a while, but this is new to me and not good new. Also, the skin on my nose is flaking. ON MY NOSE! FLAKING! This area is usually oil galore, so I guess you can say it gets the oil out of my skin. A bit too well though. This stuff is just bad news, bad bad bad bad bad. Agressive like toilet cleaner, don't put this on your poor pretty face EVER! Will never repurchase nor recommend. Normally I give away stuff that doesn't work for me or I don't use anymore, but this went straight to trash.
