Biore Skin Care Review

Here's a review of some Biore skin care products.  For those unfamiliar with Biore, its a higher end drugstore brand.  Many people scrub the oil and dirt off their faces and neglect moisturizing afterwards, which causes your skin to overcompensate by producing its normal amount of oil and then some because your skin feels too dry.  Moral of the story:  moisturize and moisturize often!


I picked these up about two months ago, and am finally getting around to reviewing them.  I PAID FOR THESE WITH MY OWN MONEY.  Biore has no clue I'm reviewing these products, and I'm not affiliated with them in any way.  This is my own honest opinion.


First up:  Dual Fusion Moisturizer + SPF 30
Here's what their website has to say:




Double benefit, exclusive formula.
Dual Fusion™ Moisturizer gives you exactly what you want: a nourishing moisturizer in one chamber and sun protection in the other. Together, they strengthen & defend your skin without ever making it feel greasy.
  • Oil-free
Why 2 chambers?
By keeping the moisturizer separate from sunscreen, the unique Dual Fusion™ Moisturizer dispenser preserves the power of each formula. That means maximum effectiveness and protection for you.
The sunscreen has a powerful zinc oxide base and yet isn't heavy and white like traditional zinc oxide. The product feels light on your skin as it offers superb UVA and UVB protection.
  • Botanamide® Technology
  • Non-comedogenic (won't clog pores)
  • Dermatologist tested
  • Hypo-allergenic
  • 100% PABA free
Apply evenly over entire face before sun exposure. Reapply as needed throughout the day. Upon first use, press pump 7-9 times until both products dispense evenly. If both sides do not dispense evenly, gently tap the bottle on a hard surface.
And what I think:
I applied this every morning after washing my face.  The packaging is a good idea, but sucks.  The product on the other hand, rocks.  It's light, not much of a greasy feeling, and SPF is always an added bonus for those of us who can sunburn in any weather.  The SPF obviously won't last the entire day, but gets you through the first two or so hours of your day.  I didn't care for all the times that only one side of the pump chose to work.  And I'm not sure what I'm going to do when it's not quite empty but I can't get any product out.  I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

Hard Day's Night Overnight
Here's what their website has to say:



You sleep, Hard Day's Night® Overnight Moisturizer works.
Especially for nighttime, this overnight moisturizer helps rebuild skin while you rest, alleviating dryness, dullness, and uneven texture — so you wake up to a smooth, glowing complexion without the greasiness of night creams.
  • Oil-free
This super-hydrating moisturizer — more hydrating than Clinique Moisture Surge® Extra Thirsty Skin Relief* — gets part of its power from tiny collapsible beads filled with Vitamin E. The formula helps to strengthen the skin's surface and smooth fine lines.
  • Botanamide® Technology
  • Non-comedogenic (won't clog pores)
  • Dermatologist tested
  • Hypo-allergenic
Gently smooth onto face and neck after cleansing.
And what I think:
Sorry for the chopped-in-half bottle.  Since it has a thick formula, when you get to the end, the pump can't get any product when its all stuck to the sides.  So I performed open heart surgery.  JK.  Again I applied this after washing my face, but at night before I went to bed.  It feels heavier, like a night moisturizer, which makes sense.  It also has these little orange beads in it which dissolve when you apply it.  No clue what their purpose is, but they're cool.  Thumbs up for this one :)

See the Future Fortifying Eye Cream
Here's what their website has to say:
The future looks bright.
Potent yet lightweight, See the Future® Fortifying Eye Cream is designed to reinforce and revitalize the delicate skin around your eyes, without the heaviness of traditional eye creams.
  • Oil-free
The right applicator for the job.
The unique pin point dispenser precisely delivers the benefits of Botanamide® Technology to the delicate eye area. It's the ideal formula for women who aren't yet ready for heavy-duty eye products.
  • Botanamide® Technology
  • Non-comedogenic (won't clog pores)
  • Dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested
  • Safe for contact lens wearers
Apply and smooth gently around the eye area A.M. and P.M. Use alone or under make-up.
And what I think:
This is the first eye product I've tried.  I applied it every night and on mornings when I felt extra zombie-ish.  It does make a little difference, but nothing earth shattering.  I don't wear any makeup over it, so I can't tell you how this would affect your under eye concealer, foundation, ect.  The packaging is fine, and the tiny tube has actually lasted me quite awhile.  I'd like to try a few more eye products for now.

So I hope this is helpful for those interested in drugstore skin care!

レイバンのサングラスをかける英雄の姿にも興味がなくなりました。今は、ただその実用性と値段のことが気に入ります。今、レイバン wayfarerをよく掛けても、かつての楽しみは再び再臨することはありませんでした。
