A little while ago, I picked up the new Biore Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar from the chemist. I usually like to use body washes, as I find them a lot easier to use in general. I have been experiencing a few breakouts, particularly on my back, so I was on the lookout for something that might help with that.
The Biore Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar promises a deep clean, and is supposed to gently exfoliate for cleaner pores. Along with natural charcoal, it also contains jojoba and peppermint to give you a tingly smooth feeling.
The bar itself is a really good size, and is slightly textured. The smell is very neutral, but there is a distinct peppermint scent once you start using it. I found that the bar itself lathers up really well. I apply the bar directly to my face, and for the rest of my body I apply to a loofah first. As soon as I began using it, my skin started feeling tingly, which was probably due to the peppermint. It was an interesting but not uncomfortable feeling.
Since using it for the last week or so, my breakouts have started to clear up, and my skin has been feeling cleaner than ever. I have found that has a much nicer effect on my body rather than my face. After my shower, my skin overall feels smooth and exfoliated, and for my body, not at all drying. My face however did feel a little dry, so ensure you are using a good moisturiser after your shower if you plan to use this one on your face.
Overall I was really pleased with the results of the Biore Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar. My skin has been feeling cleaner than ever, and oh so smooth. Being that this only $4.99, I would say it's definitely a bargain. I will be buying this again and again, and will be using it for whenever my skin begins to break out again.
