Bioré Warming Anti-Blackhead Cleanser



Even though in Australia, we're coming to an end of winter, the mornings and evenings are still terribly cold! Hopping into a shower can be a really horrible experience, at least until you get comfortable, in which then hopping out of the shower can be ten times worse!

When considering my latest cleanser, I was inevitably drawn to the Bioré Warming Anti-Blackhead Cleanser


I actually already had a tube of this waiting in my bathroom to use, however when I was sent the pretty new packaging, I couldn't resist trialling this one first! 



 What they say:
"Bioré Warming Anti-Blackhead Cleanser, with scrubbing micro-beads, warms to open pores and helps stop blackheads before they start, by cleansing impurities that can lead to blackheads so you're left with clean skin. Is it getting hot in here?"

What I say:


This is probably my favourite cleanser to use during winter! Providing your hands aren't wet (which mine usually are because I can't be bothered not wetting them first) your face will get the full force of the warming effect! Basically this cleanser warms up the second it makes contact with water. For me, this usually happens on my hands, so I will very, very quickly slap it on my face so I can feel the very pleasant warm sensation on my cheeks! It is ridiculously delightful!

As for the actual results, I've found this one to be incredibly good at keeping the blackheads at bay! I have terrible luck with blackheads, and always seem to get them in the most painful places on the face - my lip line, my jaw line, right beside and under my eyes, sometimes even on my eyelids! It's not a pretty sight! I'm glad enough not to get them all over my chin and nose, but it's just as horrible getting them in odd places! I've noticed with daily use of this cleanser, they have significantly reduced! I haven't actually seen a blackhead around my eyes at all since I've used this!



Since the revamp of the Bioré range, they have changed their colour scheme. This particular cleanser used to be green, as I checked my unopened tube, but they have since switched it to a pretty blue colour! I don't mind either to be perfectly honest (I do plan on reviewing the other tube of this product, just to confirm whether or not there was a lot of difference!) and the blue is just as nice! 
As you can see, the micro beads are dispersed very generously through the formula, which gives it a slightly gritty feel - something I love in cleansers!

Overall, I absolutely love this cleanser. I'd say this would have to be one of my favourites! If you love the heat, and you haven't tried this yet, then you need it in your life!

Have you tried this cleanser before? If not, do you think you would?

  1. I loved the older version of this as it's so comforting to use in winter! :)

    Great review, as always, hun...I must pick up another one of these to use now that they've come up with new packaging. :)

    1. Oh well this is perfect for those pesky blackheads! They are so frustrating to get rid of... if you pick them or squeeze them out, they come back worse :(
      If you try this let me know how you go :)

  6. Hey thanks for the review! I find it wierd how products warm up all of a sudden when they are on your face. What ingredients are in it? I remember trying a chocolate mask on my face but it was hot and I was quite surprised lol x

    1. It is weird, but so pleasant hehe!
      You can check out the ingredients here: http://www.biore.com.au/49.asp
      Not sure exactly what makes it heat up, though!
      Thanks hun! xx

  7. It looks nice, I like how there's lots of beads! So you can feel them working :D
    I so know what you mean... getting out of the shower is the worst thing >.<
    Interesting that it warms up on your face :)

    Thanks for the review!

  8. Ooh, this sounds lovely - I hate the whole getting in/out of a shower on a cold morning, it's a nightmare when you were all cosy in bed just minutes before!
    I don't really suffer from black heads as such, but I do get annoying blocked pores on my nose and they drive me mad, so this is definitely worth spending some of my pennies on - I have never yet found anything to keep them at bay!

    1. So true, it's the worst! I can't wait for summer here, when hopping into a cool shower will be heaven hehe!
      This will probably work well on blocked pores as the whole idea is to "prevent" blackheads, which begin with blocked pores (you are SO lucky they haven't realised they can turn into blackheads yet lol!)
      Hopefully you find something that does work, if not this :)

  9. I am the queen of blackheads wtf. I have a lot of blackheads in my nose area and it's really terrible. Is the biore better than neutrogena blackhead remover? I think I'd also want to try St. Ives'

    nice review tho :))

    1. Oh gosh, poor you! I haven't used that particular one, but I have used a Neutrogena blackhead scrub before and found this one to be a bit more effective... but at the end of the day it does depend on what your skin reacts to!
      I'd actually love to try the St. Ives' one also!
      Thanks hun! :) xx
