Last year I was spoiled and got to try the complete line of Bioré line of products, complete with their newest product, Combination Skin Balancing Cleanser.

As you may have noticed the brand has relaunched with all new packaging and this product is pretty darn new.

I have notoriously dry skin, so this product first did not speak to me at all. One day I thought to myself that if it is so great for keeping 90% of the skins moisture in and not stripping your face dry than it might be a good product to try. So, I started to use it and guess what? My skin wasn't tight, it wasn't dry, it was soft and clean.

And that is how I fell in love. That is how it became my go to cleanser.

But wait, there is more.

My hubby has been a loyal Spectro Gel user since we met 13 years ago, but about 6 months ago I noticed his acne was flaring up. I asked him did he need more Spectro, I was told he had stopped using it. It was now too drying for him and as a result he was just splashing water on his face. I cringed at that thought and told him to start using my Bioré.

Well not only does he love the stuff, he says it cuts through the oil and grease on his face (he is a cook and there is lots of grease in any kitchen) and it isn't drying. He still wont use moisturizer but I am certainly glad his oil and dirt is being dealt with with out stripping his skin of its own moisture.

Now when I reach to grab the bottle  I often find it in the shower, when I go to the shower it is often by the sink. I obviously have made a new fan of the product and may have to get my own bottle so I don't have to hunt it down all the time.

  • inexpensive
  • easy to find (drug store, grocery stores, walmart)
  • pump ( I love pumps)
  • good for oily skin, dry skin or combination skin 
  • wont strip skin of moisture (making it great for all skin types)
  • cleans well
  • doesn't sting the eyes
  • Not the best at eye makeup removal (use an eye makeup remover first)
I really love this product. For years washing my face was torture because I feared I could never replace the moisture that was stripped from my skin. Truthfully this wasn't just a  fear it was a fact. Tight skin was my life. Bioré's Skin Balancing Cleaners has solved this for me and made my skin care routine so much more pleasant. It is a real plus that the man likes it too and it has helped his skin stay clear.
