Biore® Charcoal Acne Clearing Cleanser
When first using the product it gives off this tingling feel on your skin and it very much cleans deep in your pores.
I picked this up on a whim when I was purchasing a new package of Biore pore strips--I had never tried any of the other products in this line, but several coupons popped up and the price of this item and a couple of others seemed so good, that I just had to try them. I have very dry skin, but it is also extremely sensitive, so I have to be careful with new products. I think I finally have the dryness under control with a whole arsenal of serums and moisturizers, but I'm still trying to find the best cleanser (or combination of cleansers) for my face. I have enlarged pores on my nose and chin and I also have that slightly dimpled skin = peau d'orange on my chin which seems to be tied to blocked glands just under the surface. I have never been able to do anything about that and just figured I was stuck with it (and I've tried dozens and dozens of products from different brands and at many price points). I was concerned about the experiences some reviewers have had regarding rashes and breakouts, so I eased into using this slowly--tried it on my forearms first, and then just a small region of my face...never any problem, so I finally worked up to using this two or three times per week. It is a little too drying for me to use it every day. I've been using this cleanser for a couple of months and I like it a lot; my skin feels very clean and fresh after using it. I pretty much focus on the lower part of my face--cheeks, nose and chin and I avoid the region around my eyes. It is thick and feels a bit tingly; it foams up easily and rinses away easily. After the first few uses, I no longer bother using it on my forehead, since this area is very dry and pores are not a problem there, anyway. I use another, milder cleanser for my forehead and neck. Unexpectedly, I noticed that the appearance of the skin on my chin was slowly improving...the affected area is roughly half the size that it was before--I am hoping with continued use this problem that I have had for years and years finally resolves.Extremely pleased with this very reasonably priced product. I'm SO glad I tried this...I almost didn't--it certainly doesn't seem to work for everyone, but for me at least, it works great! I don't use very much at a time, and the bottle is pretty big--it will probably take me quite a while to use it up, but I plan to buy several bottles to have on hand as a backup just in case.
This product is amazing! It really helps me keep my skin clean, and after having a face full of makeup on all day, I can really tell it goes deep in and cleans our all my pores and makeup. I would recommend spot testing it on your neck before using it to your full face.
i didn't notice any difference even after using this for weeks. The smell is fresh and mint-scented but it didn't help at all
It worked great for the first couple weeks but then my skin adjusted and went back to being a pain in my back. I was slightly disappointed because everyone said how good it was but it just didn’t work for me.
Highly recommend I used this product all the time during my freshman and sophomore year of high school and it was amazing I honestly forgot how good it was till I repurchased it today if your looking for a good facial cleanser this is the one
This cleanser can be a little harsh on sensitive skin, I recommend using it 1-3 a week with a less harsh cleanser. It didn’t help clear the big acne breakouts. It can be found at any drug store or ulta
I love the tingling feel it gives to the face because it let me know that it's working. It also works on clearing up acne.
This is amazing, tingles on the skin so you know it’s working well! It’s pretty gentle even tho it tingles. I’d definitely recommend to others
These products by Biore have been and will always be a favorite of mine. I remember when they first launched like over 15 years ago and I love the fact that it cleared up my hyperpigmentation as well as stop the blemishes from forming. I love these products. FYI, these are also featured on my beauty biche blog with more skincare recommendations.
Q & A
i've been using this for two days and it dries my skin out SO horribly, is it supposed to do that?
does this make your face feel fresh after washing and does it dry your skin? i have oily acne prone and dry skin.
Is it normal after the first few days to break out which I usually never do? And I woke up today and my face feels like there's little bumps all over, you can't see it but you can feel it. Is this normal and my skin getting used to it? Or a bad reaction and I should stop?
Does this leave your skin feeling dry?
