The Truth
I have to admit, I’ve long been a fan of Biore. I remember when their nose strips came out. My mom used to buy them all the time and I would use them up. I could stare endlessly at the forest that would appear when I ripped that strip off my nose. I told all my friends how much I loved it, and made them go and buy them too, and if they didn’t like Biore, then it was them who had the problem not my precious strips.
I think that why this hurts me so.
This cleanser dried my skin like the Sahara. It was so bad I could only use it three times and had to give up. It made me flake, blotch, and itch. No amount of moisturizer could soothe my poor skin. And that’s not even the worst part. It made me break out, I haven’t had this many zits since I was a teenager.
Im sorry Biore, I don’t want to do this but I have to say it. I would not recommend this cleanser to anyone. It was drying and painful. The “refreshing burst” was more of a painful tingle. Its just not the quality I would expect from Biore
