Hope you are all keeping dry in Australia! 
But that doesn't stop the festival season this summer...To help prep your skin look flawless, clean and clear, definitely look out to try the new Biore range.

 Find out why I used Biore skincare products literally everyday. 

Summer this year is somewhat different to what we would normally assume it would be in Australia. Of course, the best time of the year is usually Spring or Summer for me and what better way to prep your skin and really get to take care of it - so that it's ready for festival season. 

Summer days...I can imagine more beach outings, BBQs, music festivals, gelato sessions and more nights hanging out with the friends and family. I simply love this season because it's fun and everyone is always keen to have a good time. 

Here are some basic tips that I've gathered from Biore Skincare and they definitely come in handy, so they are.... 
  • Festivals are definitely fun, memorable and super exciting. 
  • Dancing and sitting out in the sun, really puts a toll on your skin. 
  • Warmer weather actually affects our skin so therefore our skin is more likely to increase its moisture with humidity, hence you start sweating like crazy... 
  • Hence, the more sweat - we start to produce excess oil that makes our skin look and feel so greasy and shiny - causing clogged pores, leading to blemishes and nasty blackheads. 
To assist your skin in help keeping all of these nasties off your skin, Biore skincare is here to help! By making sure that you constantly cleanse your skin on a regular basis with effective products, then you can really look to minimise unwanted skin issues. For myself, my skin can tend to get really oily and shiny at times which leads to blemishes and blackheads. Hence, this means that I need to work on implementing an easy skin care routine that will keep my skin looking beautiful and clear, longer.

So find out which products I've decided to follow in order to help me achieve clearer skin, fast! x 

Hope you enjoy the read! 

Prep your skin before the festival season! 


Featuring charcoal pore strips which acts like a magnet that instantly locks onto the pores and looks to draw out deep-down dirt and oil that causes blackheads. 

The strips are infused with natural charcoal and these are quite innovative because as soon as you put these on your nose, it looks to draw out the excess oil so that you really get the deepest clean. When it comes to using nose strips, I always go for the Biore Pore Strips because I have have my fullest trust in this brand, it works for me and it's simple as that! Once I find an effective brand that can help to draw out the dirt and oil from my pores, then I will tend to stick with one brand. 

How I would use these pore strips is to wet my nose a little and then take the strip off the plastic, and pop it over onto my nose (making sure that it's flat). I then would wait for about ten minutes where I'll remove it after that duration. When removing the strip, I'd usually remove it from the top and then pull gently from both sides, making sure that I am pulling down to the centre. (For me this is the most effective way in achieving a more effective result as compared to simply pulling off the strip). 

Overall, the results is that this strip is very effective in looking to clear out the gunk from out of your pores. It definitely removes a whole week's worth of build up, plus you see less oil on the skin which is really amazing. 



Featuring a creamy, pearlescent formula that looks to really clean the pores deep down and leave your skin feeling silky smooth. The formula includes spherical beads and salicylic acid which essentially looks to "unclog" pores that skin feels much more breathable. This scrub also helps to reduce blackheads and breakouts when used as an exfoliation scrub. 

If you're in the market for a gentle and effective scrub to use on a daily basis, then definitely look to check out this product because it has certainly helped my skin clear up as compared to before. I would use this scrub everyday but you can use this several times a week, depending on your skin type. 

Overall, I am so pleased with the final results after every scrubbing session, because my skin feels smooth and super, squeaky clean. The scrub foams up very lightly which is good because it's not too heavy or so. How I would use this scrub is by wetting my face first, then followed by squeezing a pea-sized amount onto my hands. Then, I'll gentle massage this over my entire face, focusing on the T-section of my face. Finishing off by rinsing my face with lukewarm water. 

The product is oil-free, non-comedogenic (so it will not clog your pores at all!), has been Dermatologist tested and is hypo-allergenic. 

I would certainly recommend this scrub as part of your morning and night skincare routine because it looks to really give you clearer and effective results for the skin. Make-up application goes on much easier and I am super happy with the using this Pore Unclogging Scrub by Biore to achieve softer and smoother skin. 



Featuring a very light moisture lotion for your skin that looks to balances pores, hydrates the skin and leaves it feeling super smooth. This is quite a light, hydrating type of lotion to use on an everyday basis. It actually helps your skin looking healthy and at its best. 

With just one use of the product, I could really notice my skin feeling renewed, hydrated and very moisturised. (So if you suffer from dry skin, be sure to check out this amazing lotion). 
The nourishing formula is infused with Vitamins A, C and E which are all anti-oxidant rich which are so good for the skin in helping it to look healthier, clearer and much softer

I would use this lotion every morning because it's oil-free (doesn't create that shine on my skin which is essential) and also comes in SPF15+ which means your skin gets some form of sun protection from UV rays and the sun. I love how this lotion has this sun protection factor to it because that means I can re-apply when needed more of it. I would highly recommend this Nourish Moisture lotion as a sunscreen base to your make-up application.

Thank you BIORE for supporting me for this review. My reviews are based on my personal and true experiences. I only recommend products that I truly support.


  1. I've been using Bioré for over a decade, I love the difference it made to my blemish prone skin, especially the entrenched blackhead zone across my nose, which is now under control. I use the Warming Anti-Blackhead Cleanser in winter & the mandarin scented Blemish Clearing Scrub in summer. Love their Self-Heating One Minute Mask too, but I wasn't as impressed by their Pore Unclogging Scrub. Great review.

    1. Thanks for your reply! What I love about the Biore range is that they're really good for ridding blackheads, etc. I guess it all depends on every skin type out there, but I am glad some of their products did work out for you! Their Self Heating One Minute Mask is seriously amazing!! xx
