Biore Skincare Review Roundup Featuring Biore Cooling Eye Gel, Biore Self-Foaming Cleanser, Biore Daily Cleansing Clothes, and More!

Phew it sure has been a while since I did a MuseTV video hasn't it? Hope you enjoyed that rather quick break down of Biore's New Skincare Collection.

Some of the items, as I mentioned in my video, are brand new where as others are older products with new clothing. Whatever the case may be, old or new, Biore always has a special place in my heart when it comes to inexpensive, quality skincare.


One of my two favorite items is the Biore Enliven Cooling Eye Gel which is a moisturizing, slightly cooling gel for offering moisture to the delicate eye are while reducing puffiness. I've used it for a few weeks now and it does a considerably good job of diminishing the puff that seems the plague my eyes upon waking up the morning. It does promise to erase dark circles as well but as of yet I haven't seen any change in those. I actually really like this and it's one of the first products that has actually worked and shown considerable change in my eye area in regards to puff. The box claims it's made with a "moisture matrix" that holds up to three times it's weight in water in which case you should see immediate results. I didn't see immediate results however after about 10 minutes I noticed that my puffiness goes down drastically and my eye does appear well rested. This is a nice little prep prior to concealer as it moistens the eye area nicely plus the inexpensive price tag doesn't hurt buying and trying it for yourself!


Sadly, after I reviewed Philosophy Purity Foaming Cleanser I was particularly thrilled. I simply adore foaming cleaners so I was quite happy to try out Biore 4-in-1 Self Foaming Cleanser which cleanses, tones, and detoxes skin all in one go! Nice! It's a typical foaming cleanser that does a great job of removing all my makeup in one go (not waterproof mascara though!) while remaining gentle enough not to dry my face out. It foams..need I say more? That's enough for me to love it. I have a foaming cleanser fetish!


Biore Daily Cleansing Clothes are one of those lazy day makeup removal items I reach for when I'm not feeling like going through the big chore and project of removing makeup. One cloth pretty much does the job of removing it all in one go. Each cloth is pre-moistened with a gentle cleansing solution that whisks away dirt, grime, even waterproof mascara! Sweet!


Biore Daily Scrub is an inexpensive way to exfoliate and detox skin to reveal fresh, more vibrant looking skin. The scrub contains tiny exfoliating grains that remove dead skin cells and resurface your skin. This is pretty gentle for everyday use and it doesn't dry my skin out like other exfoliating products I've used. I believe this is a new scrub from Biore as I've tried and liked the blackhead version prior to this.


Another of my very favorite items from Biore would be the Biore Self Heating Mask. These are oil free masks that are gentle enough for everyday use although I use them about 2-3 times weekly. They are self heating upon contact with your skin and after use my skin is always left glowing! Loves these!

Nourish and Restore

Finish up your Biore skincare regime with Biore Moisture Lotion and Boire Skin-Boosting Serum. Biore Moisture Lotion is an inexpensive way to have a light Summer (or humid weather) moisturize that contains SPF 15. Although Winter is almost here I know some of you live in warmer climates and this is an ideal light moisturizer for warmer weather! Biore Skin-Boosting Night Serum is new to the line up and offers extra night time moisture to skin while soothing and nourishing it while you sleep. I've convinced myself that my skin looks amazing in the AM after using it me or the product? That remains to be seen!

All in all Biore offers some inexpensive, quality skincare selections that are well worth checking out for yourself! A few years ago it was one of my staple skincare products and to this day I use some of it still. I recommend checking out the Biore Cooling Eye Gel and the Biore 4-in-1 Self Foaming Cleanser both are a win for the Muse!

And of course the best part of Biore is that all my lovely readers can definately indulge as it's pretty International from the US, to Japan, and even Indonesia!

Check out more from Biore by visiting there website. While you're there check out the Biore Mandarin Blossom Pore Strips, I heart these!

Cool video, Muse! I haven't used any of the Biore products except the strips. You've given me incentive to give them a try!

I had a sick fascination with those Biore blackhead strips for awhile when Biore first came out. I love the self heating mask and still use it time to time when I don't feel like going to Lush and shelling out for a tub of Love Lettuce.

Hey musey!

We have the japanese line for Biore here, and i have to rave about their Makeup Remover Cleansing Gel- it's a non foaming gel that you massage in your face, then you add a bit of water and rinse it off, it leaves your skin really clean and refreshed and gets rid of all your makeup (Like remnants of eyeliner but i haven't tried it with mascara yet)and it's CHEAP, like 6.20usd? for this large 170g tube. Do check it out if you can get it. And i watched your vid, i love your voice =3

btw, do have any reccs for volumizing mascara? And good primer. Thanks!

Ditto, I use them everyday...fact is they seriously do work well :) I do love the Kose ones too though hehe!

As much as I love Lush masks they irritate me that they go bad so quickly :(

Hm... Pink and girly? I think we have something like that here. I'll go do a "sneak-shoot" in my local pharmacy and show you! :D

My weekend was okay, didn't have time to go Beauty Credit hunting though >_<

And I think I am dead broke. Madness.

I think there's an email pending, but it's not in a hurry, so don't worry :D I can wait. Hee~

And I think I forgot to respond to one of your comments earlier, I think about being the little sister if I go to your place?

I of course so wanna be one! How fun to have someone to share MU tips and daily ramblings! :D

Hmm only the cleansing remover wipes are in pink, everything else is white and normal coloured. The gel cleanser is in a white and mint green tube.

Well the only mascaras i've tried is shu's volume, i have diorshow blackout but i haven't really used it yet =p
There's that new shiseido mascara and primer that got released recently in the Maquillage line, and i read lots of rave for The Makeup primer so i was wondering if the new one was any good. I read that the Clinique one conditions lashes and they feel softer after removal.

hi, i wonder about the night serum, i never thought of leaving something on my face over night, even leaving a moisturizer on for too long can cause some disastrous results. I always wash before bed, so to apply something sounds odd. I am not a big fan for serums anyway, but i am really gonna give the warming masks a try since i have seen your review and you made it look so wonderful.

hi doorsmyeyes610!

I've never had a problem leaving a moisturizer on at night..I use a night cream and a serum daily in the evening without a actually helps :)

Night Creams and Serums are made to leave on over night so they should be gentle to go to bed in without causing any probs unless your skin is super sensitive or you have some allergies to products :)

Hope this helps!

The warming mask is a staple product of mine, truly love it!

Happy Shopping!
