Biore Facial Foam Cleanser and Scrub Review

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.

    1. @Anonymous: I'm not sure if you can find Biore in any stores (in a Google search some said Mercury drug store?), but if not, drugstore.com and sasa.com both have Biore products and deliver to the Philippines. Hope this helps!

    1. @Janine G: Another Biore shopper from the Philippines! :) Did you see my reply to Anonymous above, who also asked the same question? I'm not sure if Biore is stocked in the Philippines, but if not, you can try ordering online from stores like drugstore.com and Sasa.com. Hope this helps!

  5. Drugstore.com has the American version while sasa.com has the Japanese version. They are still the same thing right?

    1. @Anonymous: I'm not sure what you are referring to (I've never realized there was a Western and Asian version!), but as far as I know, Biore's formulas are pretty uniform and they don't really change them from one continent to another. Perhaps the packaging may be different but that's probably about it. I guess if you really want to know, you can get ingredients lists of the two and compare them. Hope this helps!

    1. @shashi kumar: Unfortunately I'm not sure where you can get this in India. If no stores in your area carry it, you can always try online stores like drugstore.com and Sasa.com that ship internationally. Hope this helps!

  7. How’s the effect of Biore Facial Foam Acne Care on your skin? Did it help you get rid of acne?

    1. @Pauline Reyes: It didn't help to get rid of acne, but it helps to exfoliate the skin, which indirectly decreases acne (one of the factors that makes acne worse is dead skin cells and other debris accumulating in the pores). But I'd say it depends on your skin - some people don't recommend any form of exfoliation for very bad acne because the mechanical abrasion can irritate skin further, so if your skin can tolerate exfoliation, then this should help since it does the job. Hope this helps!
