Biore, the Japanese drugstore brand known for its range of skincare products, has recently re-launched its much beloved range of Facial Foams, and updated the formula to incorporate their new "SPT" (Skin Purifying Technology). Along with the updated formulas also comes new packaging!
I tried the Biore Facial Foam Acne Care (there are other types for other skin concerns), as well as the Biore Facial Foam Scrub. Let's start with the Biore Facial Foam Acne Care.
The Biore Facial Foam Acne Care is your typical cleanser. This one is very foamy, thanks to all the surfactants. That small dollop of cleanser you see in the photo below produced enough foam for my entire face! Using that small amount (which was tinier than a one cent coin), I didn't feel like it stripped my face - but if I had used more, it probably could've. It also had the nice, floral smell seen in most Biore products.
Next, the Biore Facial Foam Scrub. This is a cream with small pink beads inside. I think this is the first time I've seen pink beads, and from the way this is packaged, you know this is thoroughly aimed at the girls. It also has that flowery Biore scent.
Again, this is a very foamy scrub. The beads are small enough that it didn't irritate my acneic skin, and unlike some other scrubs, I didn't experience any pain or discomfort using the scrub. I was actually quite surprised by this - perhaps my skin isn't as sensitive now as it has sometimes been, but I didn't get any pain or redness, which happens sometimes with rougher scrubs. I think the small size of the beads really helps to exfoliate without the too-abrasive feeling. Still, if you have sensitive skin, I recommend you use it gently, and probably not everyday.
All in all, I'm quite happy with the newer-and-better Biore Facial Foam range, in particular the scrub, and both are good for the price. These are cheap and readily available, so they are worth checking out.
