Blackhead removing strips
I’ve been buying these Biore nose strips for years. Basically since I was a teenager. These small strips work like a magnet to remove blackheads. I have most of my blackheads in my nose area and these literally peel off all of my impurities. I have tried multiple different blackhead removal methods and this one by far works the best for me. I apply one strip to wet skin after cleansing and leave it on for the maximum amount of time which is 15 minutes. You may remove it earlier if the strip has completely dried off. Once you remove it there may be some slight residue on your nose from the strip but you can easily remove with warm water. It’s really fascinating to me to see the strip pull out so many visible impurities from my face. I think this is a pretty fair deal for what you get and it’s an easily accessible product. This may not work for you if are in need of a more deep cleansing treatment but for the price you pay it’s worth a shot. The small count of strips retails at $6 for an 8 count box.
Bioré - Nose + Face Deep Cleansing Pore Strips These Biore strips are made to suck ALL of the blackheads from the pores on your nose and ooohhh boy does it work! My pores are basically non existent after the use of these strips. Once you apply them to a wet nose, they dry down to almost a paper machete type of material. When you pull it off you can literally see all of your blackheads stuck to it! 🤢 I’ve used these strips for years now and they are always my go to because they work!! I struggle with large pores so I need something that removes the nasties. I love these so much. Great deal, you get 14 of them for $7.99. I recommend to anyone looking for a product to ACTUALLY remove blackheads! 5 out of 5 ⭐️

Biore UV Watery Essence
If you’re searching for a lightweight SPF that quickly absorbs into your skin, this is it. Unlike sunscreens that leave a greasy or oily residue, this one absorbs easily into the skin, with no visible whitecast. It also works very well under makeup, and personally, I find it very hydrating. Lightweight and moisturizing, this sunscreen is fantastic for a hot, humid day. However, there are a few things I don’t love... it has fragrance, so if you have sensitive skin, this may be an issue! It also has a relatively strong alcohol smell. While some alcohol in a product isn’t uniformly harmful for the skin, I don’t love the smell, and I wonder about alcohol concentration here. For this reason, I’m not sure this will be my go-to. Bioré - UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50+
SPF 50+ that works so well under makeup!
There has been mixed reviews regarding the Japanese SPF 50+ sun cream Bioré - UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50+ but I personally didn’t mind it. For the life of me I cannot read Japanese but thanks to google translator I manage to translate what is written on the back of this sunscreen- I have attached the translation. Note: I have dry sensitive skin Here were some “oh no moments” after reading what was written on the sunscreen: - This product states not good for sensitive skin lol 😂🤣😂 but I already brought 2 bottles... oops. So far I have had no adverse reaction to it. - The second ingredient in this SPF is ethanol which is drying to the skin. U can smell the alcohol on initial application but it fades away pretty quick. I didn’t lather on a lot, just 1/2 a teaspoon and my skin didn’t dry out. The “YES, let’s buy it now moments” - Japanese sunscreens claims to be light and don't leave your skin feeling greasy after application - this is so TRUE. It did not leave a white cast and dries very well ( must be from the Ethanol content). -My make up application has been flawless, no pills or balling of product. No dry spots or make up separation! Will I continue to use it?.. well I did buy 2 bottle so let’s not waste it. However I might not use it everyday due to the high alcohol content. Have u tried this Japanese sunscreen? Let me know your experience 😉

Why I Bought It: I bought this because I’ve been dealing with lots of blackheads lately and everything I did didn’t seem to work so I decided this would take them out in no time. My Experience: It gave me results almost instantly. While it did take most of my blackheads out it did leave a few but I didn’t really mind since it took most of them out anyways. So at first I did really like this product but as I did more research I found out that these are actually not good for your skin. They irritate your skin and they can actually enlarge your pores in the long run. Is It Worth It?: Bioré - Deep Cleansing Pore Strips I gave it two stars because it did what it was meant to do but I don’t think the lasting effects are worth some instant results. I wouldn’t recommend this while it did work I don’t want to cause anyone irritated skin and enlarged pores. @Target for $8

I was told to throw it away
This is my experience with these products A lady on this app told me to throw it away . It wasn’t a reaction, but these products didn’t do anything , it was like a placebo . I thought Bioré was working because of the tingling sensation but no , just an illusion. I stopped clearsil because it wasn’t working at all and when I switched to Bioré I thought I actually could change my skin and get my confidence back If it works for you then the alcohol in it must be working well for you !

Did the Volcanic Blackhead 3 Step Program Work?
Hi 🙋🏽♀️ I’ve been focussed on my larger than average pores since starting my journey on Cherie 🍒 and thought I’d try innisfree - Jeju Volcanic Blackhead 3Step Program I have combination skin. 😊 Innisfree say, the 3-step program, formulated with Jeju volcanic clusters, absorbs excess oil and removes impurities. About Jeju volcanic clusters, its a natural ingredient that forms when lava from a volcano eruption solidifies on Jeju Island. Its known for absorbing sebum and dirt. Step 1. Opens up the pores for effective blackhead removal. Step 2. Removes pores intensively (pore strip) Step 3. Tightens pores in areas My thoughts 💭 🧚♀️ Steps 1 & 2 take 15 - 20 minutes each and the last step 10 - 15 minutes. ⏰ ⏰⏰ For me that was 55 minutes, I feel it’s a little too long. But I endured 😂 🧚♀️ The nose pad to open the pores had loads of product, I looked like a bird 🐦 with the pad on my nose so my photos of product today. 🙃 🧚♀️ The nose strip was similar to the Bioré - Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips you can see the little suckers on the volcanic ash 🙃 🧚♀️ The last step was like a hydrogel mask, the nose pad had a filmy texture and packed with ingredients too. Including: ￼Sodium Hyaluronate a cousin to hyaluronic acid, Volcanic ash, ￼1,2-Hexanediol it acts as a as a humectant (basically retains or preserves moisture 💦 ) and emollient (covers the skin with a protective film 🎞 to trap in moisture 💦 ), ￼alcohol 🍷 it didn’t specify 😳 and many more ingredients including a chemically modified version of castor oil as an emollient. I did the innisfree - Jeju Volcanic Blackhead 3Step Program three days ago and my nose 👃 feels so smooth. It took a long time but it was worth it. I’ll probably do another one at the end of this week. FYI I have a giveaway going on this week. For a chance to win find the post and read how to enter. Good luck to those who do 🤞🏽 Jade 😃
Get out of my nose👃🏻🗣🗣🗣
I have acne prone skin, my face is easy to get oily. Especially for the nose, blackheads have been bothering me for a long time. I noticed that cleansing mask is necessary. Kiehl’s deep pore cleansing masque and BIORE pore pack are two products that I have tried recently. Let me share with you! I bought BIORE from AMAZON, 14 counts for $14, one dollar for one piece. Using frequency on specification is one to two weeks. High frequency will hurt our stratum corneum. I have tried other brand of same type product before, but none of them is as effective as BIORE’s. ❤️How to use: Cleaning your face firstly and moisten the nose. Use dry hands to apply the pore strips on your nose. Waiting 15 mins, and tearing it off. You will see the clear blackheads on the sticky side. Many people worry that the use of pore strips will cause the pores to become larger, so be sure to use pore refining toner after every use. Kiehl’s cleansing mask is added with aloe vera leaf ingredients to play a moisturizing effect. So even though the mask has totally dried on your skin, you will not feel uncomfortable tightness. This mask also has oat flour, this ingredient is to smooth the skin and can absorb excess oil. ❤️How to use: Apply a hot towel on your face to open all pores. Using the product on your T-area by thick layer and thinner on your cheeks. ✨✨ATTENTION! Never wash it off directly with water after drying. You need to wet your fingers. Massage and rub in circular direction on your face. When the white clay is almost melted, then using warm water to wash them off. Finally, don’t forget to use a moisturizing mask. Conclude，BIORE can be used for emergency cleaning. Using on the nose and chin can get a satisfying effect. Kiehl’s cleansing mask is suitable for the whole face, so remember to use moisturizing mask after washing the cleaning mask off. I will repurchase both of them！ Bioré - Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips Kiehl's - Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque

hi I struggle with acne and lately (last month or so) it’s been getting a LOT worse but I’m not sure why. I have combination skin and used to only have acne on my chin area and forehead. I would appreciate if there are any products you guys recommend :) thanks a lot <33 night routine: CeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanser Aveeno - Moisturizing Lotion FARMACY - Deep Sweep(sometimes) morning routine: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cleanser FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer Bioré - Aqua Rich Watery Essence Sunscreen SPF50+
Sunscreen that is noncomedogenic & POC friendly
Yes this is a Biore product, but from their Japan line. You won’t find this in stores. It’s available online, from YesStyle (Japanese cosmetic/beauty product website) and from Japanese wholesalers reselling on U.S. Amazon. The bottle and it’s entire packaging is in Japanese; here is an English translation of the ingredient list broken down courtesy of CosDNA: http://cosdna.com/eng/cosmetic_6252529702.html Bottom line: the best facial sunscreen available, hands down. I was leery because of the alcohol content. Not all topical alcohols are bad for the skin. I am severely sensitive and breakout prone. This flared up neither. It is a very liquidy format, not lotion based like we are used to with US sunscreens. It is easy to apply and non runny in the hand (think of a serum type texture). It has ZERO WHITE CAST; I am not a POC but multiple reviews have verified this is a very POC skin friendly product. Some have even claimed it to be a great makeup priming base. Try it out and let me know what you think! Bioré - Aqua Rich Watery Essence Sunscreen SPF50+

My last post was just two weeks ago, and my skin has gotten a lot better! It’s smoother and clearing up at my forehead and under my eyes. I swapped out my Bioré - Blue Agave & Baking Soda Pore Balancing Cleanser for Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser . The Bioré cleanser was too harsh and too drying on my skin, and it would leave my skin rough with the exfoliating. The HydroBoost Cleanser is a lot more gentle, leaves my skin soft after the wash, and it also smells nice! Hopefully my skin keeps getting better aah 🥺
Rate my Routine/HELP ME get rid of this REDNESS
I'm pretty new to skincare, I was really lucky until about 23 when I started getting psoriasis spots on my face shortly followed by this persistent reddness and dryness on my cheeks. Also I because super aware of my deepening laugh lines. The rest of my face feels pretty great with my routine. I usually dont get acne unless it's hormone related. I have very combination skin, my cheeks are dry along with my forehead while the rest is normal /oily I always wash my face in the sink with warmish water : 1- every other day I use the bliss - Jelly Glow Peel makes my skin feel super clean without the harsh scrubbing 2- every day I use Bioré - Blue Agave & Baking Soda Pore Balancing Cleanser 3- dr.organic - Aloe Vera Hydrating Moisture Cream I dont know how I feel about this product, I got it mainly because of the aloe for my redness and dryness in my cheeks but it doesn't seem to be doing much 4. N°7 - Dark Circle Corrector I like the way this product feels and it has a tint to it so it helps with dark circles but not as much as i would like Any tips/ticks/hints would be super helpful and appreciated. Thank you!

bioré witch hazel deep cleansing pore strips
key ingredients: tea tree oil - tea tree oil is a natural antiseptic with antibacterial and anti inflammatory properties that both soothe and heal skin. witch hazel - witch hazel is a type of shrub that’s used as a remedy for a variety of skin issues related to irritation and inflammation. when applied to the skin, it can help soothe redness/irritation and inflammation. witch hazel is good for inflammatory types of acne such as cysts, pustules, papules, and nodules. it’s similar to drying lotions, as it helps to dry out the blemish. what it claims to do: bioré’s witch hazel pore strips claims to bind to blackheads and not your skin. it also removes dirt 2x deeper into your pores than normal pore strips. these ultra strips lock onto and remove debris and oil to unclog your pores. my experience: bioré pore strips are one of my favorite products to clean deep into your pores, unclogging them of any dirt and debris. although these pore strips do claim to remove blackheads, they only stick to the surface of your skin, which doesn’t get deep enough to the actual blackheads. they reach far enough to only remove bacteria and dirt from the pores. however, these strips are great for removing sebaceous filaments. sebaceous filaments are formed when the sebaceous glands in your hair follicles (which are inside your pores) produce excess sebum/oil. even though sebaceous filaments aren’t necessarily a bad thing, they can overproduce sebum which can clog your pores, leading to pimples. when you peel off the strip, you can see all of the sebaceous filaments, dirt, and oil stuck on the strip. i recommend applying a warm compress or steaming your face by taking a hot shower to soften up the pores to make it easier for the strip to adhere onto your pores, making it more effective. keep in mind that it may be more difficult to peel around the under eye area because that area is most sensitive, so try not to apply it too close around there. Bioré - Ultra Deep Cleansing Pore Strips
Bioré removes blackheads
Bioré Ultra Deep Cleansing pore strips are used to unclog pores, remove dirt, blackheads and oil. I would suggest using on normal and oily skin and avoid if you have very dry or sensitive skin because removing the strip may irritate your skin. I like that this strip contains witch hazel and tea tree oil, which are natural antiseptics. This nose strip is made of a cloth like material in the front and the back is gloss like where you’re supposed to stick to your nose. You are supposed to wet your nose before applying to insure it sticks, wait 10-15 minutes until it drys like paper-mâché and then gently remove and you will see the impurities removed. This product ranges from $5-$13 depending on the amount of strips, and you can purchase at your local Walmart, target or drugstore. I purchased this product because I tend to get blackheads on my nose and have enlarged pores. This is my first time using this product and I somewhat like these strips, but they aren’t my favorite, due to the strong tee tree aroma and redness after stripping off my nose. If you don’t have sensitive skin and you’re looking to save some money then give these a try, they actually remove blackheads and are easy to find at most stores.

Sunscreen for brown skin (no tint)
We make the most of the 5 minutes in the sun by building a #sunscreentower ! 🌞 Coming from #sunnycalifornia☀️ and #india the #wintersincanada take some time to get used to! My biggest concern was: should I use sunscreens in the winters?! After doing some research I realised we should be wearing sunscreen everyday! 365 days a year, inside or outside, rain or shine (or snow)! So that’s what I do now! 💛 I wanted to highlight these two sunscreens as they are the only ones that don’t leave a tint on my #brownskin I bought the Bioré - UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ from Stylevana and LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios XL Ultra-Light Fluid SPF 50+ from Shoppers drug mart So What do you think of my #spftower ? Lemme know in comments! 😁 #wearsunscreeneveryday #sunscreeneverywhere #sunscreeneveryday #larocheposay #anthelios #bioresunscreen #towerthursdays #towertuesday #sundamagetreatment #sundamagedskin #bioré #bioresunscreen #bioresunblock #skincarecanada #skincareblog #skincareblogger #brownskinsunscreen #sunscreenforbrownskin
Day one of Tretinoin 0.04%
I’m a special ed teacher of students with moderate intellectual disabilities. Currently doing both in person (hello maskne) and online teaching (aka stressssssss). Also my district told me 3 days ago I’m getting three new students so stress times ten!! I never used to get breakouts. They started probably my junior year of college, so four and a half years ago. I’ve always been conscious of skin care and my acne never got out of hand, I just could never get rid of the ever present 2-5 pimples on my face at all times. They definitely appear most around my period. Its definitely the worst it has ever been this year with a lot of added stress on top of wearing a mask all day long. I feel like I’ve tried everything. Over the last five years I’ve gotten on birth control, done proactiv, Curology, rodan + fields, differin, every benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid face wash or mask out there, I even drink a teaspoon of liquid chlorophyll every day to try and detox from within. I also drink at least 64 oz of water every day. I try to drink more, but as a teacher I don’t get many bathroom breaks. I’m beyond frustrated and feel like I just can’t get my face clear! I gave Differin a solid chance because I really thought that, since it used to be prescription only, it would work. After 4 months of using it, I feel like it did an okay job. I never really got big painful pimples, but I never really got those anyway and I was still getting the same amount of overall breakouts each month. I decided I need to try something stronger, but I didn’t want to have to go to the dermatologist. That’s when I found Rory! I was prescribed Tretinoin 0.04% with Azelaic Acid 0.8% and Vitamin E and hyaluronic acid. It was $5 for my first bottle and will be $75 every 3 months from here on out. I got approved within a few hours and it arrived at my apartment in 2 days. I’m doing this post because I never actually take pictures to compare progress (because I’m so sick of never actually seeing any progress!!) and to try to wish for some good results finally! Here’s the rest of the routine that I’ll be doing: AM- LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser VICHY - LiftActiv Specialist Peptide-C Anti-Aging Ampoules VICHY - Minéral 89 Face Serum COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer Bioré - UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ PM- VERSED - DAY DISSOLVE Cleansing Balm spectro - Jel Cleanser VICHY - Minéral 89 Face Serum COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream Then I’ll do the Tretinoin last Wish me luck!!!

PIMPLES EVERYWHERE i didn’t know what to do !! 2 weeks later everything was gone and my skin was better than never but im still traumatized. I won’t use this product again.

2 Biore SPFs put to the test
So if you’re someone who is interested in Korean spfs, and has come across both of these spfs, you definitely need to read this review! They are similar but have a few key differences. Bioré - Aqua Rich Watery Essence Sunscreen SPF50+ This is the more common of the 2, and is widely spoken about. It has multiple chemical UV filters which make it effective. The texture feels light, it dries quickly, and it blends nicely into the skin. My biggest issue is that alcohol is #2 on the ingredients. It smells like alcohol mixed with fragrance which I find unpleasant. I’m sure it dries down so quickly due to the alcohol. It can be drying on dry skin types as well. I didn’t have too much of an issue but it wasn’t my favorite as a result. Bioré - UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ This has the same chemical filters as the watery essence, with the main difference being texture. This as a more “true sunscreen” texture in the sense that it is rather thick when applied. It doesn’t blend as easily into the skin and feels a bit sticky tbh. Alcohol is #2 in this as well and it has the same alcohol-y smell as the essence. I really did not enjoy the texture of this as I found it heavy and sticky. My makeup pretty much fell off my face when I applied it. Didn’t cause breakouts but I just don’t Iove it. So the main difference is just the texture. If you aren’t bothered by the alcohol, I would recommend going with the essence to start as the gel just doesn’t feel great on the skin.
