Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub

Acne is a terrible thing to deal with for anybody. As a teenager, I rarely had to deal with breakouts. But, after turning 21, I experienced what is called "adult acne". It negatively impacted my self esteem and caused depression to set in. I tried everything! I went to the dermatologist and he supplied a bunch of useless samples. I would pick up face washes & try them. For a while, they may work, but then it seemed like my skin became immune, overly dried, or irritated. Adult acne was a constant struggle.

I remember my dad once saying, "I don't understand it. You've always had nice skin".

I finally found a product that worked for me. It's the Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub. This is my favorite facial cleanser for acne and it really works well without drying my skin out. When I first started using this product, it was compared to proactive. I have tried proactive, but this product is so much cheaper and, for me, it worked better. Sometimes, I still switch to other brands & try them. I don't know why. Maybe it's their gimmicky ads. My face starts breaking out & then I always go back to my trusted Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub.

This product works so well that I thought it deserved its own hub. My husband even loves it so it's definitely a good buy for a unisex bathroom.

Face Wash that's Great for Men too!

Salicylic Acid

Salicylic Acid is the acne treatment ingredient which deeps cleans pores of dirt and oil that can cause blemishes. The Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub contains 2% salicylic acid. It is a peeling agent, which causes shedding of the outer layer of skin.

In order for acne symptoms to improve, salicylic acid should be used regularly to receive the most benefit. After your first use, it may take up to several days for acne to clear.

How to Use Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub

HOW TO USE

  • For optimal results: First, wet your face. Then, squeeze the product into your hands. I use a dime size amount. Massage over your entire face and neck. You could even use this on your chest and back.
  • Rinse thoroughly with warm water.

Some things that I love...

I wash my face in the morning and at night before bed. My skin is prone to breakouts and this product is perfect for sensitive skin! Because I am NOT a morning person, I love the cold tingling sensation that this product provides. It wakes my skin right up! The texture of the product is like a mousse with little beads. I love the texture! I've used some skin cleanser products with salicylic acid before that felt slimy (which is gross), and this product is smooth and creamy. The beads are fantastic because they exfoliate your skin and allow the salicylic acid to penetrate your pores to kill unwanted bacteria to treat and prevent future breakouts. I use this product every day because it is gentle. Some scrubs are harsher and therefore only meant to be used once or twice a week. Overall, after using this product, I experience much less breakouts than with other facial cleansers.

How it Works

  • There are spherical cleansing beads, within the formula, which effectively smooth and clear your skin without damaging it. This translates to no more flakes and dead skins cells in exchange for a softer, smoother complexion.
  • Optional to use in conjunction with the Biore Pore Strip as a pre-treatment since clean skin is easier for the strip to adhere to.
  • Great news! You could use this product everyday, or several times a week, since it is gentle! If using several times a week, use with your favorite cleanser. However, I only use this product every day and that works best for my skin.

      I'll have to give this a try, Melinda. At age 57 I still have bouts of adult acne, especially on the chin and outer cheekbone areas. You'd think I would have outgrown it by now!
