I love skincare, I’m lucky in the sense that my skin isn’t overly sensitive so I have the ability to test out different skincare lines and as a product junkie this is a must. I was lucky enough to receive the new Bioré skincare line that features baking soda. This line is perfect for the winter months. With natural baking soda, the formula leaves pores 91% cleaner and instantly deep cleans dirt and oil while exfoliating and gently buffing away and removing dead and dry skin.
The baking soda pore cleanser is targeted for for combination skin (my skin type) and gently exfoliates the dead skin while keeping the rest of your skin smooth and soft. Baking soda is in so many skincare DIY’s that you see on Pinterest but you need to be careful with the amount that you use to not upset or burn your skin. I love that baking soda is a key ingredient in these products and I don’t have to worry about overdoing it and over exfoliating my skin. I love how it removed all of my makeup (I tested with Bioderma water after cleansing to be sure!) and removed the dry skin but didn’t feel harsh. It was so gentle and left my skin feeling extremely smooth. My skin did feel a little dry after cleansing but that was to be expected due to the exfoliating properties.
The next product in the line that I was sent to try out was the Bioré Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub. This was such a cool product to try because I had never seen anything like it before. The product comes to you in a power form and needs to be activated with water turning it into a foam consistency. The Scrub works up to 2.5x better than using a basic cleanser while exfoliating without over scrubbing. Bioré recommends using this 2-3 times a week. I love this because you can completely control the texture of the product to what works for you. If you prefer a thinner exfoliating product add more water, but if you are a fan of a thicker product simply add less. The scrub is great because the baking soda dissolves as you work it into your skin ensuring that you don’t over scrub. To use it you simply add a quarter size amount of powder into your hands, and activate it with water (you only need a few drops) and massage onto entire face, rinsing thoroughly. Once again this slightly dried out my skin and left it feeling a little tight but once I applied moisturizer it left my skin feeling amazing.
I was sent these products via influenster and Biore but as always all opinions are my own
