“Got combination skin that’s sending you mixed messages? Achieve the clean you want, without disturbing the natural moisture your skin needs. This cleanser removes all forms of impurities while leaving 90% of skin’s natural moisture, giving your face an even, all-over clean” -from Bioré’s website.
Bioré Balancing Cleanser is an oil-free, non-comedogenic (meaning it won’t clog pores), hypo-allergenic and dermatologically tested foaming facial cleanser for combination skin.
Even though I have oily skin, I gave this a try. It comes in a navy blue and white pump action bottle which is easy to use and allows the perfect amount of cleanser to be dispensed each time, as I found that a little of this cleanser lathers up quite a lot. The clear gel contains minimal fragrance and has a fresh smell. It effectively removed my make-up and any excess oil from my skin without stripping my skin completely, so there was no dry or tight feeling after cleansing.
For best results, I found that creating a rich lather in my hands before gently massaging the foamy cleanser onto my face worked much better than simply rubbing my fingertips together and trying to create the lather on my face.
Bioré Balancing Cleanser is not paraben free, as it does contain Methylparaben and Propylparaben.
