Kate's Product of the Week - Bioré Pore Unclogging Scrub

As promised 2 PotW posts this week. My second offering is this Bioré Pore Unclogging Scrub (RRP £4.99). Bioré is a brand I've loved for a while now and it's not let me down yet. In Feb for my Birthday I bought this because I've been wanting a good face scrub for a while and this is oil free so it's great.

Bioré Say: "Our gentle yet effective face scrub uses perfectly spherical beads—not jagged edges—and the pore-unclogging power of salicylic acid to deep-clean clogged pores. The scrub unclogs pores by cleaning away impurities. Show the door to nasty pore-cloggers with this face scrub and get ready for beautifully clean, smooth skin."

Onto the product itself. It's lovely and creamy and a little goes a long way. As you can see from the pics above one little blob is plenty. It's really lovely and fresh on the skin and it's not abrasive at all which is what I really look for in a good scrub. I really prefer the little exfoliating beads in this scrub, it just feels quite gentle towards my skin. 

  • It's not going to break the bank at £4.99
  • It's Oil-Free, so if you're prone to oily/combo skin then this is the scrub for you
  • The little beads inside are so gentle and are in no way abrasive
  • Cost-Effective (A little goes a long way) 
  • There is Salicylic Acid in it so will help with the prevention of spots
  • It really does leave your skin feeling clean and lovely and fresh
  • The packaging just is a bit plain and boring (a little clinical) 
  • It's not easy to squeeze out if your hands are wet.

  1. I've never tried biore as a range but this does sound lovely! I struggle with face scrubs because of dry skin so it's difficult finding one that doesn't make it worse

  2. When I am buying an exfoliator I never buy these ones with the little beads I just don't find they are effective enough and are really bad for the environment, I'm glad it worked for you though :)



  3. I haven't tried this one. I have a Dr Brandt Microdermabrasion one, I got in a beauty box and an NSPA Detox Illuminating Scrub, both are excellent!

    Feel like I haven't been to say hello for ages, so Hello!

  4. This product sounds amazing! But like you said, it's not exactly appealing to look at. I love how cheap it is though and will more than likely pick one up after reading this ;)

  5. This sounds like a good product and I like that it isn't very abrasive as I have sensitive skin.

  6. I love Biore's facial scrubs, I have tried a few different ones before but I haven't tried this one yet! Hopefully I wont be disappointed either :)

  7. I have been using this face scrub for a while now and it has become my all time favorite. The beads are not harsh like other scrubs that I have tried but they still definitely do a good job of exfoliating.
