Awesome! Super, super awesome.
I've been using this scrub for 2 years and it has cleared my skin up dramatically! If you have problem skin, please give this a go.

i love this scrub! i have been using it for a bit over 3 weeks now and as usual when starting a new product my problem areas broke out terribley. but since then everything has cleared up and my pores are appearing much cleaner and smaller.
it is very gentle which i really like and quite a thick mixture so u only have to use a little bit and i find it to be quite nourishing.
i also use the toner afterwards

My fave scrub
Extremely gentle but has lots of beads so it does its job of scrubbing really well!
It makes my skin feel smoother and leaves a fresh, clean feeling.
It also has salicylic acid which might be good for those with acne problems :)

Cheap but effective
I don't usually bother with face scrubs that are the 'bead' type ones as I found they don't work as well, but this one actually left my skin really smooth. I was pleasantly surprised and would probably buy again.

Fantastic. This scrub isn/t gritty or harsh on your skin but leaves it feeling wonderful. I noticed an obvious change in the blackheads on my nose and a lot less shine. Only thing I didn't enjoy was the smell. However, I think I've found my new 'go to' scrub.

Okay but not a favourite
this is a very gentle scrub but it works well with my skin feeling better then before i used it. however, i don't like the scent of the scrub, i find it not that pleasant. It leaves my skin feeling clean and decently exfoliated.

Love Love Love
I am in my mid 40's and still have acne, oily skin and blackheads. This product is great for me, I use it most days but do sometimes mix it up with another Biore product.

Good cleanser, average exfoliant
I used this as a face scrub however I found the beads were a bit too gentle to make me feel like I was getting a decent exfoliation. That said, it was a fantastic cleanser, removed all my makeup and left my skin with a nice, cooling, tingling sensation. I would buy it again, but as a cleanser, not an exfoliant.

Best in Beauty-2012 Nomination -Good for everyday use.
This is a great scrub. It is light enough for everyday use, but strong enough to really feel like itsgetting you clean. The texture is very rich and thick, and it lathers up nicely. I keep this in my shower, I findit does not irritate my skin at all.
I love how great my skin feels not tight or dry, after using it .
The mornings are a great time to use it because it almost wakens my skin with it's light scent.
I like that ths scrub salycilic acid to help with acne. the beads are also not too rough , and the consistency of the scrub itself is really creamy and nice . a littlg along ends up going a long way. It also rinses off clean leaving no residue and the beads do not irritate my eyes.
It is a multipurpose scrub, it cleanses at the same time exfoliates my skin. A time saver in the morning , when you are exfoliating you can cleanse your skin as well saves you from using two different products for your daily cleansing and exfoliating process.
It has a very refreshing and cooling sensation.
The price is unbeatable and it is a great brand available at local chemists and priceline .
Definately a keeper.

Fresh and minty scrub!
I found this scrub loads of fun to use.I used it while it in the shower, about a 10cent sized portion, I applied it generously to my face using circular motions and allowing the beads to work their exfoliating magic, and then washed it off.
The scrub had a lovely cucumber scent that was inoffensive and pleasant. It also gave my skin a nice cooling minty sensation on use and right after. My skin looked really smooth! Since I applied my night moisturiser right after it, I had no complaints about dry skin or itching. Overall, a good scrub!
Rating: Sep 26, 2012 12:57am
eh, so so
If I didn't try St. Ives afterwards, I would definitely have raved about this product ages ago.
There isn't that many exfoliating beads in it. I bought the product that had this pink little note on the top corner that said "double the exfoliating beads", however, I didn't feel that many beads. I would say this would lean more towards a cleanser than a exfoliator. It is definitely gentle, and has this cooling refreshing feeling at the end. Don't be fooled to think that your clean is squeaky clean or anything, it is just the menthol doing that!

Exfoliating Cleanser - Excellent Scrub
BEST IN BEAUTY AWARDS REVIEW 2012
Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub is an oil free blemish fighting cleanser with salicylic acid.
It is a complexion clearing scrub that exfoliates and refines skin helping to remove dirt, oil and blackheads.
I apply the scrub with my hands to wet face and massage face and neck thoroughly.
The consistency of the pale green scrub is thick and when in contact with wet skin breaks down to a creamy lather.
When massaging skin the texture of the lather is smooth with tiny mid green exfoliating beads throughout working skin and pores, a cold sensation is felt on skin as the formula of the scrub gives a thorough cleanse.
I have combination skin and using the Pore Unclogging Scrub 1 to 2 times a week is very beneficial in helping to keep skin blemish free.
Great exfoliating factor and cleansing power.
Biore is an excellent skincare brand.
Made in U.S.A.

Helps with an oil-prone t-zone
I use this scrub once every two to three days to control my oily t-zone. I enjoy the fresh scent and the clean feeling of my skin after using it. It has an immediate effect and my skin is really receptive to the Biore toner and moisturiser I apply after it.
Rating: Jul 31, 2012 7:17pm
This is a pretty good product. The first thing I got from it was the very nice smell of cucumber, which always gives any facial product a "spa" feel. The cute little green beads were nice too. When I rubbed this on my face I got a hint of a muddy smell, which I also associate with spas, so far so good. The product left a tingly minty cool sensation after cleaning my face. My only gripe is that even after I had finished showering, there were still slight traces of the exfoliating beads left on my face. Not a huge issue but maybe something Biore might like to know about for future reference.

not for normal/dry skin types.
Im giving this a 3 star review because even though i didn't like it at all it isn't suited to my skin type which is probably why. I have a normal/ slightly dry skin type i think this one is for oily/combination skin types.
I found this to be very drying to my skin it was very tight after getting out of the shower, i didnt notice any difference to my pore size.
The beads were overly large and quite hard and sparse, i didnt get a good scrub out of this product. The beads were in a cream cleanser base which didnt foam up much but seemed to strip my skin off any oil i had.
Im sure somebody with an oily skin type would probably love to get rid of that oily feel on their skin - me i prefer the feel of moisture on mine.
Rating: Jul 6, 2012 4:54pm
Gentle, and not drying.
It's a good, gently scrub which is rather good for your skin (not as harsh as some of the neutrogena or clean n clear scrubs). However it isnt the most exfoliating of all scrubs - however it is supposed to be gentle enough for daily use.
Rating: Jul 6, 2012 1:46am
Nice scrub but pores not unclogged
This is nice scrub, it's gentle and exfoliants nicely. But it doesn't unclog pores. I would still use it as an exfoliant though

Good quality scrub
I use this scrub on my face after using Biore's 4 in 1 foaming cleanser and it works a treat!
The little exfoliating beads aren't as rough as the ones I usually use but did just as good a job. It has a pleasant cucumber scent and is gentle even on my sensitive skin. Once rinsed off and my face was dry my skin was clean and clearer than normal.
I'm very happy with how this scrub turned out!

good for cleaning pores
i was pleasantly surprised at the creaminess of the product, the consistency was almost like a thick moisturiser. I have been using this prodcut for 3 weeks now and will buy it again. While its pretty gentle as the micro beads are not very hard or many in number it does cleanse the face thoroughly and helps prevent blackheads from forming and helped in clearing up ones i had on my nose. The fragrance is a tad medicinal but not unpleasant. It does dry out the skin so I use it twice a week and moisturize well afterwords.

Dry and Irritating
I love Biore and purchased this after reading the great reviews.
I used this like any other scrub with damp hands and a damp face and found this to be really harsh.This product leaves my face angry and red almost instantly, taking until the next day to calm down. This then left me with really dry skin.
Unfortunatly I cannot give a review of effectivness of the product due to the irritations caused.
I do like the package and the bottle design, but for me the product is a no go. RESPONSE FROM BIORE: Dear Trudz, we’re sorry to hear you’ve found this product a bit harsh on your skin. The Bioré Pore Unclogging Scrub contains the active ingredient Salicylic Acid, which is fantastic for reducing blackheads, breakouts and controlling oily skin, but if you don’t have particularly oily skin to begin with, this product may be a bit too drying for your skin.
We suggest you give our Biore customer service team a call (1800 468 318) so we can gain a better understanding of how you used the product, and perhaps suggest a product that is better suited to your needs and skin type.

Excellent Cleanser & Exfoliater
Biore offered 7g sample sachets of Pore Unclogging Scrub, I was lucky enough to receive 2.
The scrub exfoliates and refines, a complexion clearing formula, it contains Salicylic acid, so it should not be used with other topical acne medications at the same time.
I thankfully do not suffer with acne, only the occasional breakout, or suffer many blackheads. I do however have combination skin, so at times can get an oily T zone.
The blemish fighting cleanser is oil-free and easy to use.
Wet face and squeeze the pale green scrub into hands. Massage over face and neck creating a creamy lather, I use a wet make-up round to help lather the scrub.
It creates a cold sensation to skin and has an exfoliating ingredient in the scrub that is felt on skin when massaging into a lather. Small mid green dots appear randomly through the lather. The fragrance is alright.
After cleansing, rinse off skin thoroughly.
The scrub leaves skin feeling clean removing pore clogging dirt and oil. If any flaky skin, it is exfoliated away. Brilliant product.
Fresh, smooth and healthy looking skin for me.
Using the scrub twice a week is enough for my skin to keep pore clogging dirt at bay, a gentler cleanser in the meantime, keeps my skins balance in check.
Biore is a great brand, with products that work, at an affordable price.
Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub can be purchased in Supermarkets and is Made in U.S.A.

Minty and average
This product comes out extremely foamy after rubbing it on my face and has a very minty smell and feel on the skin - something I'm not quite sure I personally like, but someone else might. It cleanses quite well, even washed off my waterproof mascara. I don't feel like the microbeads did much for my skin though. But as a cleanser, it's pretty good. Gives my skin a nice clean feel. Not entirely sure if my pores were unclogged, but then again, my pores don't really need much unclogging anyway.

More of a cleanser than a scrub
One thing I love about Bioré Pore Unclogging Scrub is its delicious fruity scent! It’s fresh and it reminds me of cucumber/apple/honey dew. It’s also a lovely fresh pale green colour and has a creamy pearlescent consistency containing some micro beads. To me, it’s more of a cleanser than an exfoliator/scrub as there aren’t many micro beads in the product to make it an effective deep pore unclogging scrub, and it’s one of the down sides of this product. I like my scrubs to contain many tiny micro beads to gently and effectively buff away dry flaky skin and residue build up. However, if this was considered/named a cleanser, then it makes a great gentle everyday cleanser. Only a tiny pea sized amount is needed and it lathers into a creamy foam and has a cooling sensation on the skin. It leaves my skin feeling clean and looking clear. Since my skin is normal and I don’t really have any blackouts/breakouts/acne, this product works well enough for me as a gentle cleanse. It’s perhaps not the best product for those seeking a deep pore-unclogging scrub to clear blackheads etc. Overall, I love the scent and the gentle formula but because it’s doesn’t contain sufficient micro beads, I wouldn’t call it a scrub and give this 4/5.

I got a sample and instantly fell in love! The cleanser isn't too harsh. Usually I don't buy any cleanser that have the mircobeads in them but I don't even notice them as this product isn't heavy like the others. I have combination skin and I haven't notice a dramatic skin change but it maintains my skin which is what I want.
I have went out a purchased the pull size and was shocked at how cheap it is. It just made it better again.

Good scrub, but didn't unclog pores
I think this is a good scrub, but so far I haven't noticed a difference to my pores. This gives your skin a tingly feeling when used. It leaves skin feeling clean and provides gentle exfoliation.

good overall exfoliator
i've used this scrub as a general exfoliator and finds that it removes impurities well. however it does feel a bit too minty/tingly on my face which i didn't like too much the first time i used it. however, overall, i found it did the job well
Rating: Jun 5, 2012 7:29pm
Still in two minds about it
As far as scrubs go, this is a fail. The beads are so tiny and sparse that you can barely feel them. It's TOO gentle!
On the other hand, it feels amazing on the skin, as it has this fantastic cooling sensation which I'm completely addicted to! It feels so refreshing, coupled with the fresh scent it's absolutely delightful to use in the shower in the mornings.
And as for the 'pore unclogging' claims, I can't say I've seen much improvement in my skin. It's generally pretty clear anyway but the blackheads on my nose are unchanged.
So overall, I don't know whether I'd repurchase this. Maybe if I got more 'scrub' out of it, and better results for my skin.

Made my nose produce oil like crazy
I don't normally have a very oily nose. In fact I have relatively dry skin. I'm not sure why this happened, but after I used this scrub, my nose started producing oil quite badly. You could see little oil bubbles on the surface of my nose. I tried it again just in case it was a strange coincidence, it the same thing happened. To make matters worse, the scrub didn't do anything it claimed to do. I didn't notice any difference with my blackheads.

I received a few samples of this product and it was pretty good.
It was a very thick, creamy scrub and the beads were squishy.
It left my face feeling clean and refreshed.
The sample has definitely made me consider purchasing more of the biore range.
Rating: May 29, 2012 5:42pm
Definitely only for people with oily skin. This face wash got rid of all the oil on my oily skin, leaving it really squeaky clean. Had a very average effect on acne, though it did help a bit. Scrub is rather harsh so good for sparse exfoliation.
Rating: May 22, 2012 12:05pm
I'm a huge fan of their exfoliator, and this scrub is also fantastic. It reminds me of a mix of their exfoliator and Warming Cream Cleanser. You can really feel it work. It has that slight tingle on the skin which feels great as you know it 's working. It helps to exfoliate, but don't contain harsh beads that feel scratchy on your skin.
It contains Salicylic Acid to help fight blemishes and keep your skin clear. While it's soft enough to use everyday, if your skin is dry once or twice will be enough. I like that this is something that I can use once or twice a week when I have hormonal blemishes, but it won't upset the balance of my skin by drying it out.
Rating: May 13, 2012 11:50pm
Great for clearing the skin
Really nice feel and great for spotty skin. It has salicylic acid though so it def isn't for sensitive skin and would only really recommend this with people with trouble, problem skin (black heads, oily skin, acne).
I noticed that I do need to be a bit gentle and scrub softly with this one and not leave it on too long but the feeling is lovely :)
Would def not pair this with anything else with BHAs though in case it irritates the skin.
Rating: May 13, 2012 11:41pm
This face scrub was ok but not great for me. I'm not sure if it really did much to help my skin. It didn't make it worse though so I guess that's a plus!

Tired, tested and still unsure
I have been using this scrub both morning and night for about 3 weeks now. I am not sure if I have noticed a result in my pores though.
I have acne suffering skin so it does take some time for my skin to adjust to another routine.
The scrub is not too abrasive and actually feels really nice on the skin. The scent is so fresh and as you massage it into your skin you can feel it getting rid of excess oil and dirt on the skin.
It was not drying at all so that was so pleasant for me. I usually find that scrubs dry my skin out and I cannot go a single minute without applying moisturiser straight away.
It is a great scrub but for me personally I think I need something more targeted at my acne.

Great value for money
I've been using this scrub for atleast 12 months now and my skin has never been smoother. This product retails at under $10 in the majority of supermarkets across Australia so it is rather easy to find and easy on the pocket too. The product is very creamy, spreads evenly across the skin and washes off with ease. I have quite sensitive skin and my skin hasn't reacted to it which is a plus. Oh the smell is also a winner! Great bargain buy for those after a cheap decent face scrub.

great exfoliating scrub
i like this exfoliating scrub when i started using it, however its not working as well for me now that ive been using it for a few months. it cleared my face for the first few weeks, thats it. now it doesn't even help reduce breakouts anymore. my friend used it once and said that it felt like she was sand-papering her face. i will try another scrub, this isn't the best but its ok.

Drying, ok exfoliating, but wouldn't buy again.
This product smells nice & fruity, has a tingly sensation (the type you get when you accidentally get nail-polish remover on your skin), contains salicylic acid and is gentle.
Its exfoliating abilities aren't the best, but I don't consider this a con because it's not supposed to be a weekly scrub but a daily scrub; thus it's meant to be gentle/weak enough for everyday use. Plus, the salicylic acid should provide some chemical exfoliation, and so that ought to eliminate the number of beads the manufacturers decide to put in.
This does leaves your skin feeling nicely supple and smooth, but it won't vanquish dry patches in one wash; you have to do it several times over a couple of days.
Rating: Jan 29, 2012 10:55am
Pretty top notch
When using this product I am invigorated by this terrific cooling sensation and I love it. The bottle does say that it helps control blackheads - that I have not seen. It has however helped with breakouts. Been using it for about two weeks and I have only had a couple of spots, definitely going to continue to use this product.
It markets itself as complexion clearing and that it certainly is.

Cooling and gentle
I quite like this product. It works well for my skin- it is refreshing, cooling and gentle to my skin. Does not make my skin breakout so it's great. only need a little bit.
I usually use a cleanser after using it, just to make sure my skin is clean.

I found this too harsh for my skin and I'm not sure if it's just me, but i kept feeling this warming feeling when I use it, a bit like the self heating mask. My skin type is dehydrated oily, and this was too drying on my skin that it started peeling. RESPONSE FROM BIORE: Hi daisycity, It sounds like you might have been using our Warming Anti Blackhead Cream Cleanser, which is designed to heat up when activated with water to open your pores for a deeper cleanse. We do have plenty of other great Bioré cleanser options that are much gentler, and are also oil-free which might suit your skin type better.

pore unclogging scub
I bought this for my sister a while ago and i thought i would try it out. Have to say, after using this product for a few weeks now, i dont have any blemishes. This works wonders! Its gentle enough to use on a daily basis and doesn't over dry my skin at the same time, my face feels fresh after wards and it doesn't interfere with my treatment products. Extra bonus is it smells good and really great quality at an affordable price. Win win

I love this stuff! At first, when I first bought it and used it, I was completely put off by the smell - I would describe it as a a weird cucumber fragrance, BUT for some reason, after using it once a day in the shower for a few weeks, I now end up REALLY LOVING the fresh smell!!!
But apart from that, this scrub works really well as a gentle exfoliation, suitable to use everyday, or just once or twice a week aswell. The exfoliating beads are a little chunky and bigger than what I prefer, but nevertheless, I still really like this scrub. It almost feels detoxifying. I will consider repurchasing this again in the future.

This is the best exfoliating scrub I have ever tried. It says use several times a week but I use it daily. It's not harsh and it doesn't dry out your skin at all. My skin is left feeling smooth and clean all day long. It smells soooooo good too. A really fresh summer smell. I have naturally large pores and am prone to black heads. But after using this product for about a month I've notices that I'm getting hardly any blackheads and my pores have shrunk significantly. Love it!

It has warming element so when you apply it to your face, you can actually feel it's warming up, perfect to use during winter.

On the other hand, the beads do a good job in removing on the dirt particles on your face.

Clogged pores? You should try this little baby!
This product is creamy, gentle and removes dead skin cells in a flash. Its moisturizing properties balance out the salicylic acid, perfect for declogging pimples and pores. I use this once a week and it's really gentle and smells wonderful.
I really recommend it.
For a product that's 140ml and $12.99, you'd be silly not to try it out for yourself!

An average product
I got a free sample of this product, and I wasn’t very impressed. The smell wasn’t at all enticing, in fact it gave me somewhat of a headache because it was rather chemically. The scrub itself didn’t work as well as some of the other exfoliating products I’ve tried either, it tingled a little, but I didn’t notice any real difference in the appearance of my pores.
The product was easy to apply and use, and did wash off well without leaving my skin feeling too dried out, but I don’t think I would buy the product, as the smell really put me off from putting it anywhere near my face
The exfoliating beads are quite large in this product, and it has a nice texture, rather than the gritty scratchy feeling some other exfoliants can have. It had a nice soothing, cooling effect, although that wasn’t entirely desirable on the cold winter’s morning, it did relieve and sooth some of my blemishes. Salicylic acid as an ingredient is supposed to be more effective but I didn’t really find it to be any better than the exfoliating products I already have.
Overall, this is an average product, I really didn’t like the smell of it, but that might just be personal. It made my skin feel nice and clean without the dry, tight feeling, so it’s right in saying its gentle for everyday use, and might be suitable for those with more sensitive skin. For the price, it’s not a bad product for keeping your skin clean, but might require prolonged use to see the pore unclogging effects.

Not so great.
This creamy scrub smells refreshing and revies my sense, though as a scrub I felt like it didn't perform as well as the many other scrubs I have used in the past. My skin still felt a little unclean and I could still see a few of my pores clogged.

I used to use this every day!
This is a great face wash for refreshing the skin and leaving it feeling cool. It definately unclogged my pores and teamed up with the biore triple action toner my skin cleared up a lot.

Only product that works for my acne
I recieved this as a sample and I highly recommend it! I am still currently use it and despite all of my efforts on trying to cure my acne this product was the only product that actually did something. Although my skin isn't perfect and still is suffering from acne it has definately prevented most of the newer pimples from forming. I use this only when I feel as though I need to exfoliate (every 2-3 days). I quite like the smell and I love the texture. When I finish with the sample I will definately buy a full sized one.

Gentle on the skin
I use this product about once a week, it is gentle on my sensitive skin and leaves it feeling soft. My brother is a mechanic and has started using it too, we have seen a major improvement in his skin.

Nice cooling feeling
I really like this product.
It has definitely become part of my skin care routine. I have combination skin.
I only use this every 2nd day and alternate it with my other cleanser.
It gently scrubs and exfoliates the skin.
Leaves skin feeling clean and smooth.
Has this nice cooling effect.
Very affordable and you can buy it at both Coles and Woolworths.
Not sure about the smell. Its not unpleasant but I'm not a fan.
I do like this product!

I really enjoy using this cleanser as it gives me a squeaky clean feeling afterwards which I love. It is also not too harsh but I use it a couple of times a week because I find it a bit drying on my skin. Overall a great product which I have purchased many times.

Needs more exfoliating beads!
This is a great, gentle, creamy scrub that's perfect for clearing out your pores. However, when I use a scrub I expect it to remove any dry, dead skin too but this didn't. Now that the weather is cooling down and my skin is needing a bit more moisture, this isn't working so well and i've actually had to switch to something else. But it's great for summer when this isn't a concern. This could probably be fixed though with more exfoliating beads (kind of ironic since there's a sticker on mine saying "now with double the amount of exfoliating beads")
Rating: Mar 23, 2011 10:03am
I adore this scrub. Its one of the very few I've used that didnt leave my skin feeling dry. The creamy texture makes it easy to massage onto your skin and it smells really good too. My skin always feels very clean and refreshed afterwards. I love the tingly feeling also. The only negative I have to say is that it takes a little too long to remove the residue from your face afterwards.
Rating: Mar 17, 2011 12:21pm

I have used this for ages and i find it rather effective, my only complaint is that it doesnt have smaller beads to further cleanse and exfoliate my skin

I would give this product 0 stars if I could, I tried this once as I got it in a sample pack and would never use again. I literally had flakes coming off my skin which made me look horrible! I threw this product out straight away after I noticed how tight it made my skin feel, I did not expect to wake up with my skin itchy and flaking, Definitely not a product I would purchase. Not for the dry or sensitive skinned.

I use this once a week or so, I wouldnt use this more frequently due to sensitive skin. Works well, nice fragrance.
Rating: Feb 9, 2011 1:37pm
I've tried better
This works fine, but I much prefer to one by neutrogena. I found that this doesn't lather enough and it was kind of creamy making it not as easy to wash off as the neutrogena scrub. Other than that it does cleanse pretty well and your skin doesn't feel dry/tight after.
Rating: Jan 18, 2011 11:35am
Quite good for the price.
This product foams up nicely, but could do with some more beads. I use this daily, and it does a good job of keeping the pimples away. I do find it a little drying though, so invest in a good moisturiser! :) I usually hate scented products, but I quite enjoy this one. Very refreshing!
Rating: Jan 15, 2011 6:19pm
I love this product - I love how its not too harsh on the skin, but still effective and it has such a nice smell and refreshing feel afterwards. I've tried other scrubs - even Clinique, and this one is the best so far
Buy on special and you're getting an even better deal
Rating: Jan 11, 2011 9:34am
i like its creaminess and it lathers well, the fragrance is alright but maybe its because of its gentleness but the scrub isnt too abrasive and it didn't do much for exfoliating my skin. i know people who praise this product but i personally didnt find it to be so effective

Smells Great, Feels Great!
It really wasn't what i expected. This is one of the best exfoliating scrub I've ever used. It smells really good (sort of like rock melon) and it has a really creamy texture. i love it!

Pore Unclogging Scrub
I use this scrub every night after my cleanser for an extra deep clean. It is gentle enough to use every day as there aren't many beads in it and it isn't harsh. I feel like it really gets rid of all the grime and dirt on my skin and leaves it feeling fresh and is really refreshing.
Rating: Jan 1, 2011 7:56pm
Lovely scent with good results
I enjoyed using this scrub as I tend to like one that's gentle enough for daily use. One thing I love about the Biore face care range is the smell, some people say its too chemical smelling, but I find it really nice and pleasant to use. The scrub is very gentle, you dont feel as tho you're rubbing sand over your skin. I found it left a little residue after a rinse tho, so it might need a couple of goes to remove it completely. My skin felt lovely and smooth, and in general it looked fresh. No long term ground-breaking results tho, and I didn't find it prevented blemishes at all. But a nice product nonetheless
Rating: Dec 27, 2010 4:19pm
Works well as a cleanser.
I have oily skin, and I get the occasional pimple here and there monthly. I use this as a weekly cleanser, since it doesn't do too much for exfoliating.

A gentle clean
I quite like this scrub for its creaminess and scent, not so much what it does for my skin (which is not a lot). It's not too abrasive so may be suitable for those with sensitive skin but for those with oily, acne-prone skin like me, I'd advise to steer clear.
Rating: Jun 21, 2010 12:29pm
Too drying for my skin
Got this as a sample and it made my cheeks/chin soo dry and flaky. I didnt feel that it really scrubed away anything atall, just made my skin really dry and sting a little. Obviously not for my skin.

Fruity scent and texture that feels like it's really cleaning out the grit - Cooling sensation makes it a pleasure to use. My favourite scrub.
Rating: Jun 6, 2010 2:41pm
I use this scrub every second day to get rid of dead skin cells and keep my pores clear.
I find that this is great to use in the morning as it is really fresh and wakes your face up, however I dont think that there are really enough exfoliating beads to get a really good scrub. I normally use this while wearing exfoliation gloves (which I suppose defeats the purpose of the beads) but if I am in a rush I will just use my hands and this still gets a good result.
Rating: May 30, 2010 1:04pm
Not really pore unclogging...
I like this scrub, although it isn't as granular as I would normally prefer. It could probably be used on a daily basis, and it leaves your skin feeling refreshed. However, it falls very far from being pore unclogging if that is what your problem is - it has done nothing for my blackheads. I probably wouldn't repurchase, although I would recommend it for people who don't have much of a problem with blackheads.
Rating: Apr 25, 2010 10:10pm
i have oily skin that i am constantly being conscious about, i thought i might give this a try to reduce the shininess around my face. But unfortunately this made my skin produce more oils which caused my moisturiser to just sit on my face instead of being absorbed. Though this is great for a fresh feeling without moisturiser

Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub
I tried the new Biore scrub as an alternative to the Neutrogena Gentle Cleansing Scrub i normally use. This Biore one is good for every day use as it is very gentle and the beads are not rough. I think most people will find it makes their skin feel quite smoothe after use. However, i prefer a scrub which is a little more granular than this one.

Pore Unclogging Scrub.
I have used this scrub for months now and I love it. This is the one cleanser I have found that really works on my skin and doesn't stop working after a couple of weeks. It's not drying and always makes my skin feel soft and fresh after every use. I use it twice daily and it help clear my pimples. Really is a great product.

Not the best Biore product, but still good.
I love Biore products, but I have to say-- this one is not my favorite. I didn't think it exfoliated my skin as promised, although as a cleanser it worked fine. I've got fairly dry skin and am not prone to breakouts, so it could just be that this product wasn't really made for me, but...
Rating: Dec 7, 2009 7:28pm
Stung a bit

Pore unclogging scrub
The combination of sweat and bad sunscreen made me get a lot of sweat pimples and little lumps. I began using this twice a day and saw immediate results. It not only got rid of the breakout but significantly reduced the amount of blackheads i get. I now use the scrub once every few days and its working wonders. I love the smell as well. It reminds me of those extra watermelon lozenges

I made a bad review of this product after only a few days. After using this product for a couple of weeks now my skin is looking so good. I suffer from blackheads and open pores, my pores have shrunk and my blackheads are not as pronounced. My skin looks much more even and clearer. My beauty therapist has even commented on how much better my skin is looking. I owe it to this cleanser, my skin has responded so well with it because it is high in salycylic acid (2%) which is known for being great for blackheads. I feel so much better and more confident now. I have tried many products for my blachheads including aha's, but bha's seem to work better. I could see how this would be way to drying for someone that does not have extremely oily skin like me. Its a scrub and I can handle using it twice a day.

Have used this scurb a few times but am not blown away by it. The exfoliating beads are quite soft and there doesn't seem to be many so I doubt they make a difference. I dont like the cool feeling it leaves on the face as Id assume this is methol, which has not effect but makes you think something is happening. It is a very "soft" scrub, does make skin some what softer.

Pore Unclogging Scrub
I found this product a little too harsh for my skin to use everyday but every three days or so was fine. I think the "micro" beads are a little too big to really exfoliate your skin properly though, but the salicylic acid seems to do the trick.

Scrub it off!
I found this product has a nice subtle scent although i like it i prefer a non-fragrance face cleanser. When i first used this it made my face really refreshed and cool, i felt like my face was quite soft and made it clean. I used it everyday morning and night since it is quite gentle although my face was starting to dry out a little. And i found it a little too much for my skin, overall i didn't really think it did a lot for my skin though it did feel good. I wouldn't recommend this product for sensitive skin though! 3/5
Rating: Sep 20, 2009 10:06am
it had a really cooling sensation which was good. the microbeads were quite large, though. and i didn't really like the texture of it. it smelt nice and i think it was effective. not for sensitive/dry skin.

I use this cleanser every day and have now for a couple of months. I have noticed an improvement in my skins texture- it seems to work well at unclogging the congestion. The exfoliating beads are gentle and don't leave your face feeling red and scrubbed.

Feel the Burn!
I didn't mind this as a cleanser. It could have been a little more effective as an exfoliant/blemish control agent, but otherwise I was generally happy with the performance of the product. The addition of cooling agents to leave your feeling fresh and tingling was a bonus.
My man however, thought otherwise. The first inkling I had that he'd even used it occured when he came roaring out of the bathroom, up the hall and shrieked 'How the hell do you use this? It's burning my face off!!!!' So I'd caution those with sensitive skin, against using this cleanser.

* * *
I found this to be an average cleanser. It's quite gentle but it doesn't unclog my pores. It does leave my skin cool and refreshed, without drying. For my blemished skin, it probably needed to be used for longer periods of time in addition with other products to really see an improvement. But if you already have good skin, I think regular use will be suitable for maintenance and prevention of blackheads and whiteheads. Note, however, that the description says prevention of blackheads, it doesn't say anything about removing blackheads or blemishes.

this is very effective in my opinion, helps keep whiteheads and blackheads at bay, cleans thoroughly but not too drying.

I found that this scrub has definitely helped reduce my blackheads. I've been using it for 8 weeks now, and I use it every day. I found it better than a lot of other products, as those with Salicylic Acid generally dry out my oily skin. I've seen a definite improvement, and highly recommend this!

A bit too gentle for me
I tried this but I like a scrub that feels like it's really scrubbed deeply and this one didn't. I must say though, for a sensitive skin or someone with a lot of acne it would probably suit because it is so gentle. I could hardly feel the 'beads' doing any scrubbiing so it would be nice on sore and sensitive skin but my skin needs a bit more 'power' than this one provided.

Great for Sensitive/problem skin!
Once again Biore' have done great for the minority of us who have oil prone yet sensitive skin. This gives a slightly deeper scrub than the Biore' Detoxify Daily Scrub(which is great), and still has the greatness not causing irritation, but still getting rid of the nasties!! This has the added bonus of peppermint to give you that super fresh feeling!!

Really does smell yummy, nothing like any other cleanser I have used before. I thought it did a good job at removing dirt and oils and it certainly isn't too harsh on your skin.

So gentle and effective
Such a gentle scrub that actually works. Truely does clean out your pores and leaves a nice clean refreshed feeling for your skin.

As a fan of the pore strips I was expecting a lot from Biore but I was a little disappointed with this product. Although it did clean my face and remove all dirts, oils etc, i did not feel like it exfoliated enough. However, that may be due to the rich, creamy texture. But all that said, I have sensitive skin ad the fact that this product did not irritate me is a big plus.
