Not the Biore I Used to Know
I have used Biore′ products for several years off and on. I was disappointed when Biore discontinued the self-heating masks. I always got a kick out of having a blue Smurf face.I am not really sure what the 4-in-1 part of the name is referring to. To me that would suggest the product does four different things in one product. The product cleans your face. I guess one can argue that it cleans, stimulates, detoxifies and refreshens. That’s four things. The one thing it doesn’t do is moisturize. But it doesn’t claim to do that.The ingredients in this deep cleansing, oil-free formula are listed in order as follows:-Water-Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLE and SLS are the bane of my existence!)-Coco-glucoside (a foaming agent which is not toxic like SLE or SLS)-Glycerin-Betaine (used in facial products for its ability to reduce the irritation effect of surfactants [SLE and SLS], anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties)-PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate (Another surfactant!)-Sodium CocoAmphoacetate (Yup, a surfactant).-Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Extract (skin conditioning agent)-Camellia Senensis Leaf Extract (green tea used here as a “detoxifier”)-Coco Nucifera (coconut) Water-Withania Somnifera Root Extract (Root plant originating from India: Withania Somnifera taken orally is known to have anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, anti-stress, antioxidant, mind-boosting, immune enhancing and rejuvenating properties. It is also said to be an aphrodisiac. I am not sure what it achieves used topically).-BHT (Butylated Hydroxytoluene. This is BAD, BAD, BAD. Research this and avoid it!).-Polyquaternium-10 ( a “coating” ingredient most often seen in hair care products)-Diazolidinyl Urea (antimicrobial preservative that acts as a formaldehyde releaser in cosmetics and personal care products. This ingredient may be derived from animals. From PETA’s Caring Consumer: Excreted from urine and other bodily fluids. In deodorants, ammoniated dentifrices, mouthwashes, hair colorings, hand creams, lotions, shampoos, etc.) YUCK.-Disodium Edta (Chelating and binding agent)-Menthol (ingredient that gives the slight tingling sensation after using)-Citric Acid (preservative)-Propylene Glycol (used to absorb extra water and maintain moisture in certain medicines, cosmetics or food products).-DMDM Hydantoin (DMDM hydantoin is an antimicrobial formaldehyde releaser preservative. People exposed to such formaldehyde-releasing ingredients may develop a formaldehyde allergy or an allergy to the ingredient itself and its decomposition products)-Benzophenone-4 (Benzophenone-4 ingredients absorb and dissipate UV radiation, which serves to protect cosmetics and personal care products. It doesn’t protect your SKIN from UV, it protects the PRODUCT. I don’t store my facial cleanser in the sun. Benzo-4 is a known allergen).-Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate (Used as a preservative, it is acutely toxic by inhalation. High allergen warning).-FragranceOk. Those are the ingredients. Not a pretty picture. But let’s ignore the horror listed above for a moment and talk about how the product works.Instructions say to wet face, pump out product, massage gently and rinse off. With the amount of surfactants in the ingredient list I thought this product would be foamier than it is. The application was smooth and easy. I used it with full makeup on because I wanted to see how well it performed as a makeup remover. It did a great job with the foundation/blush and eyeshadow. It sort of failed in the removal of the mascara (I don’t wear waterproof formula). I had to use a cloth to remove the mascara but the rest of my facial mess rinsed off nicely.After thoroughly rinsing, I pat toweled dry. I immediately noticed a slight tingling sensation (the menthol in the product) that was not unpleasant. I don’t really know if this ingredient really benefits the skin or if it is just a psychological benefit.I did notice after 5 minutes of air drying that my skin starting feeling tight. I fought with myself about applying my favored night time moisturizing cream because I wanted to see if the cleanser itself would cause any irritation to my semi-sensitive skin. It did. After ten minutes the tingling sensation was gone but the dryness prevailed and my cheeks felt hot. I looked in the mirror and there was noticeable redness.In my opinion, this product cleans but the DEEP CLEANSING claim is really saying it will strip your skin of all moisture. I had to double the amount of my nightly moisturizing cream to negate the effects of the harsh ingredients in this cleanser.If you are even a teeny bit sensitive to products I would really avoid this product. I overall was a fan of Biore but honestly, after researching the ingredients found here I am just going to have to say “Good Luck and Goodbye”.
I’m not a fan
First off, I’m not a huge fan of foaming face cleaners (or any cleaning treatment). This one is no different. This one in particular feels like it’s drying out my skin every time I use it. It really does not feel very good. I haven’t noticed any lowered amount of pimples or other flaws. No real effect on tone. Nothing.Not recommended.
Does the job
Well, it does the job. It is keeping my 15 year old daughter’s face looking great. I tried it but it was a bit drying on my skin (though I have very dry skin). My teenager hasn’t been complaining about it so I am thinking she loves it. I would recommend this to people.
Washing My Face is a Joy with Biore 4 in 1 Detoxifying Cleanser!
I once had an oily complexion that was out of control until I learned to exfoliate my facial skin with the Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System (Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System 0.68 Fl Oz). I use the battery-operated cleansing brush at least twice a day. However, I vary the face scrub. There are a million types of face scrub on the market. Because of my oily complexion, I normally choose one that has tiny scrub granules inside the gel or lotion. Recently, I tried the Axe Oily Skin Face Scrub, Controil (Axe Oily Skin Face Scrub, Controil, 5 Ounce), which does an excellent job of exfoliating my face. However, it is designed for men and using it every day can become monotonous.Fortunately, because of the Amazon Vine Program, I discovered the Biore 4 in 1 Detoxifying Cleanser, which is unisexual in appearance and intention and is fun to use. It foams, reminding me of the foaming anti-bacterial soap that is sold at Bath & Body Works. I’ve used the Biore 4 in 1 on my hands and face. I wash my face with it at least twice, sometimes three times, a day. It hasn’t dried out my face. However, I always apply a light layer of Vaseline Men Body and Face Lotion [Vaseline Men Body and Face Lotion , 20.3Ounce Bottle (Pack of 3)] on my face after I shower in the morning and before I go to bed at night.A few months ago, I was telling my friend, Kathy, that I was approaching fifty. Her teenage daughter, Savannah, asked me, “Where are your wrinkles?” If you wish to remain young looking for as long as you can, do not do TOO MUCH of the following because they will rob your skin of its elasticity and vital nutrients: Sunbath, smoke, and drink alcohol. However, do drink plenty of water, use a hypoallergenic face lotion, and exfoliate your skin in order to rid it of impurities. The Biore 4 in 1 detoxifies ones skin. During the detoxification process, one may experience a sudden increasing or flaring of acne. This is normal and should disappear in a few days. This happened to me when I was younger and was using a topical form of antibiotic in order to control my acne. I experienced a sudden increase in acne but it soon disappeared. I recommend that an inexpensive face lotion be used in conjunction with the Biore 4 in 1 Detoxifying Cleanser in order to prevent dry, irritated skin.I love the foaming action of the Biore 4 in 1. One squirt provides enough foam to cover my entire face. Any excess can be spread on my chest and shoulders. After all, my complexion doesn’t end with my neck. The scent is heavenly. It has a heady, intoxicating smell that is very pleasant and addictive. When my girlfriend, Tammy, came to visit, I had to let her sniff the foam; she also liked it. The appearance of the bottle is attractive and is suitable for use by both genders and by all ages. The Biore 4 in 1 Detoxifying Cleanser is one of the most exciting products I’ve tried this year. I recommended that my teenage nephew, Jacob, use it because, like me when I was his age, he has a slight case of acne. His grandmother said she’d buy him a bottle. I would love to try other products made by Biore.Joseph B. Hoyos
I used this twice before looking too deeply into the ingredients list. Both times, I felt it has a slight medicinal/chemical smell to it– not disgusting, but not my favorite. It’s a decent amount of foam and it glides across the skin easily and rinses off cleanly. Unlike several others, I didn’t feel it was drying– maybe because I’m used to a different foaming cleanser that strips away oils even more. Anyway, I was left feeling like it worked fine and was pleasant and priced fairly, and I’d use it as a “back-up” to my favored product. Until…I read the ingredients. Like reviewer Amanda Devon, I care about the ingredients in my health and beauty products. Unlike her, I don’t necessarily understand what all those terms mean. I know I’ve heard that certain things are bad (PEGs, parabens, SLS, etc.) and I just try to avoid them, without looking too deeply into what each one is or does. But this time I decided to read just a little further because her review interested me. I read about each concerning ingredient on the nonprofit Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database. And what I read made me decide to throw this product away… just not worth the risks, in my opinion. There are too many known irritants here, and potential carcinogens.Interestingly, using dangerous products on your skin or hair may be MORE dangerous than eating the products because your digestive tract has enzymes to break down chemicals and excrete them from your body fairly quickly, whereas when your skin absorbs them, they can get into your bloodstream and stay there for a long time. I didn’t consider this until recently, so I was more concerned with eating organic than worrying about things like shampoos and face washes, which I figured couldn’t do me much harm. Now that I know better, I’d rather make safer choices.
No Idea What They Were Thinking
This is the kind of cleanser that tries to be everything to everyone and basically ends up being a Ford Focus – it drives but not really much of anything for anyone. This will clean, tone, etc for a decent price (hence the two stars). But it doesn’t cater to a specific skin type or issue, and I have no idea what detoxifying means other than something they teach you in marketing. That and like another reviewer covered in some depth, this doesn’t have a great list of ingredients. -3 stars for all that.
I’ve been impressed with every cleanser by Biore I’ve tried, and have tried several now. This one is excellent. It has no fragrance, rinses away cleanly, foams gently, and leaves my skin smooth and glowing, with no residue. It also makes my T-zone look good, and shrinks my pores in that area. It takes off makeup easily too. I can’t find anything bad to say about this. I would definitely purchase this when it runs out, although the bottle is a generous size so that may be awhile.edit:I upped this from four to five stars. I decided I love this. I have oily skin and large pores in my T-zone and this shrinks them down to nothing. I love the lightweight foam this dispenses, the lack of any scent, and best of all, my skin looks and feels super smooth, firm and amazing without any dryness. This rinses away very easily and cleanly, but I can’t stop touching my face after I use this. It’s like I gave myself a great facial mask that tightened and smoothed. I’m hooked on this and so glad I tried it.
I use this on days when I don’t wear foundation makeup
On days when I wear makeup, I need something with an exfoliant in it to help scrub it all off. The foundation I wear is a strong color-stay version, and between it and all the mascara, eyeliner, lipstick, etc, I need something with a bit more texture to it to help scrub it all off. However many days I don’t wear any makeup, or just a light layer of Bare Mineral powder foundation and some eye liner and mascara. On those days, this Biore cleanser works well for washing it off.The foaming formula feels as light to wash with as the powder is that it washes off. It feels refreshing to the skin and is easily rinsed off with a splash of water. I find washing my face with this an effortless task, so I’m much more likely to wash my face before going to bed when I don’t wear makeup using this, rather than just skipping it and going to bed with the day’s oils still on my skin.
Leaves this face feeling clean and refreshed for a decent price
I’d never really had much in the way of a daily face-cleansing regimen other than soap and water–but lately it’s left my skin feeling parched.Biore’s 4 In 1 Detoxifying Cleanser does what I need it to do–relieving the skin of impurities and keeping it looking clean and feeling fresh, thanks to just the right hit of menthol.It doesn’t leave my skin feeling irritated (even after shaving) but, like most cleansers, it still leaves it feeling on the dry side (you can chalk that up to my age but I prefer to blame the cold weather!), so I add a light layer of moisturizer–I’m a big fan of CeraVe cream.It also has a light, pleasant smell and a little goes a cost-effectively long way!
We all need to Detox every now and then
This cleanser is a foaming cleaser, which I love. I just think there is something so cool about pumps that aerate things and make them all foamy. I tend to be a little heavy handed when I’m dishing out products, so foaming cleansers are great for me, because you are less likely to use too much. This cleanser is very light, which is generally the case with foaming products. It has a neutral smell and leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean. I couldn’t really tell a difference is skin healthiness between this and the many other over the counter cleansers I have used in the past.
This is a foaming cleanser. It has a nice pleasant fragrance with just a hint of a chemical smell to it, but overall, was nice. it did a good job of cleansing my skin and did not leave it dry or irritated. It is a `deep cleansing’ cleanser so I don’t use it as my daily cleanser, but just once or twice a week.
Nice and clean
I like how clean this makes my face feel. It has no particular smell and seems mild and gentle. I like the foamy consistency of it too.
I use this cleanser each night before I go to bed. I don’t use it to take off my makeup, so I can’t speak to how well it would do that.I like this because it’s very gentle and it has a nice, pleasant smell. I also got it at a good price, with an online coupon. I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy this versus a different cleanser, because I haven’t found something extra-special about this product, but it’s a good solid cleanser all around.
Nice clean, refreshing feeling; great dispenser
I’m more of a Neutrogena fan than a Biore fan, but the performance of this face wash has got me thinking of switching brands – it’s a very nice product all-round.It’s packaged as a foam-type dispenser that meters out enough for use without any waste. Given the price of face cleaners, being able to stretch the amount used is never a bad thing!But regardless of how it is packaged, the reason for using it is performance. For me, it works very well. My face feels clean and a little “tingly” after use (with the latter due, I image, to the menthol in the soap). It does dry my skin a bit, but not to the point where it is at all bothersome.The scent is hard to describe. It’s not at all bad, but just hard to put my finger on. Not soapy, not perfumy, but it certainly is not unscented either. I guess the best word is “interesting.” Regardless, the scent does not linger after rinsing (another plus for me) so even if you don’t care all that much for it, you won’t be smelling it all day.I haven’t used Biore products in quite a while, but this is working so well that my next purchase will be Biore rather than Neutrogena. Highly recommend.
Biore Detoxifying Foam
Works great at cleaning up my oily skin. I also used the Biore strip on my skin. I actually cleaned my face so much with this that I used the entire bottle. Love the foaming wash because it’s lightweight and easy to wash off.
I usually like Biore products but I am not a fan of this, dries out by skin too much
Generally speaking I usually like most Biore products. This would probably be my least favorite product so far. It has a light scent that smells nice and foams really well. I feel like it does a decent job of cleaning my face but also dries my face out too much. I have tried quite a few different face cleaners and this is the only one that has dried my face out so badly. I have somewhat oily skin to start so I would hate to see how badly it would try your skin if it wasn’t oily. I am really not big on foam cleaners as well and it needs some grit to it or something to give my face a little scrub. This face cleaner isn’t bad but it’s apparently not a good fit for my skin type and I won’t be using it again.
I love the Biore 4 in 1 Detoxifying Cleanser. It’s a foaming cleanser that smells and feels refreshing on your face from the eucalyptus extracts. It cleansed my face wonderfully but still left my skin feeling incredibly soft and not dried out in the least which surprised me since it’s an oil-free deep cleansing formula.The best facial cleanser that I’ve used in a while.
Light, Refreshing Cleanser
Biore is a name that I trust in skincare so I was excited to get to try this new 4 in 1 detoxifying cleanser. It is a foam cleanser with a pump dispenser. One pump provides more than enough to thoroughly clean my face and neck. The foam is very light but has a silky texture as you rub it on your skin. I didn’t detect much of a scent or fragrance at all and I have a pretty sensitive nose. After cleansing my skin feels clean and tingly fresh. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is that it can be a bit drying if you have dry or combination skin. My daughter, who is 15, has a more oily complexion and it is perfect for her. Overall, I’d recommend this product especially for anyone with oily skin or occasional breakouts.
Ok for combination skin
i recently used a Biore product designed for combination skin and ended up very disappointed. So I was surprised that I liked the Biore 4 i4n 1 Detoxifying cleanser. I still get break outs but now I also have wrinkles (oh, the humanity!). Finding a product that manages both well is very difficult.The Biore detoxifying cleanser felt nice on. It was not irritating at all. It rinsed of cleanly. I did not get that tight dry feeling that often follows washing. While I am not at all sure that my face needs to be detoxed (it doesn’t get out much) this did feel like a good product. I used it over several weeks and it did not irritate my dry old lady skin or my cause more annoying acne.I recommend this for combination skin.(and obviously any skin that has a drug problem and needs to detox)
Leaves my face feeling very fresh and refreshed without over drying. Slight tingling affect as it becomes exposed to air after washing. Great product.
Foaming Cleanser Lathers Well
Biore 4 in 1 Detoxifying Cleanser is my favorite among all of my skin care producs for daily use. I feel like the foaming cleanswer is really helping. My face feels cleaner and refreshed after use without the drying that I have with many other face products. I still get breakouts about monthly (probably related to hormones) so I have to supplement its use with salicylic acid containing cleansers as well.The cleanser foams which makes it lather well for quick and easy distribution, scrubbing, and then rinsing.It has a very neutral scent, which is neither attractive nor repulsive. This is a big plus for me as most of the scents in skin care products drive me nuts.So I recommend without reservation Biore 4 in 1 detoxifying cleanser as a daily use scrub.
I have sensitive skin, but not overly sensitive to where everything breaks me out. I also wear a full face of makeup nearly every day. I am giving my intial thoughts, because I’ve only used the product twice so far. I will come back at the end of a week and compare. If anything is wrong, by the end of the week…I will know it!I chose this and the Biore Daily Cleansing wipes. The first evening, I removed my makeup with the wipes first, and then I washed my face with the detoxifying cleanser. (normally I wash my face twice, once to remove makeup, once to cleanse skin.1. You do not need a lot of the product2. The consistency was fine with me, it wasn’t very foaming, but good enough (no mess)3. It has a pleasant smell, almost like a peachy smell to me which is a plus!4. There is a tingling sensation (menthol to give you the feeling that wow this stuff really works! But for me it actually does. I was able to remove the remainder of the makeup that was left after using the wipes.I did use it the next morning first and then I used the wipe just to see if my face was clean and it was. My only thing thus far is after washing, I recommend using your moisturizer. I don’t know if it was the cleanser, but after washing and applying my moisturizer and makeup I see a bit of a glow.UPDATE AFTER ONE WEEK:verdict is in..I love this product!! I have no complaints. It works well, it doesn’t dry out my skin(I do use a light moisturizer) and I can tell the differencein the overall appearance of my skin.
This cleanser is billed as “detoxifying,” and I have no idea exactly what is meant by that.However the packaging suggests that the product will leave skin feeling “refreshed.” Apparently this sensation is meant to be accomplished by the addition of menthol to the product. When I first tried this product, I noticed it gave my skin a tingling, slightly burning sensation that I did not like at all. Reading the ingredient list, I found menthol which is a known skin irritant that I am quite sensitive to. Had I know about the menthol in the product, I would not have wanted to try it. On the plus side, the cleanser does have a mild, fresh fragrance and a light, pleasing lather. If you are not sensitive to or actually like menthol, you may like this inexpensive cleanser. If you find menthol irritating, you should avoid it.
Would Not Use Again
According to Biore’s web site, this product is intended to “detoxify, tone and refresh skin in mere minutes”. (I am left to assume that part 4 of the “4-in-1” is “to cleanse”.) As a conscientious shopper, I like Biore as a company because they do not fund animal testing. As a smart shopper, I am always looking for inexpensive alternatives to higher-end products. Let’s see how well this one performed.1. Detoxify: 1/10 Another reviewer has already detailed the ingredients in this product. Although it does contain green tea, a known detoxifier, this also contains a shocking number of potentially harmful chemicals. This is the number one reason I would not use this product again.2. Tone: 5/10 What a toner is supposed to do is provide firmness without sapping the skin of moisture. A good example of an effective toner is theExclusive By Yves Saint Laurent Top Secrets Toning & Cleansing Micellar Water. The Biore 4-in-1 cleanser may tone the skin, but it does so by drying, an effect that is not pleasant. Now, most people will apply a moisturizer shortly after cleansing, but should “tone” be included in this product’s description?3. Refresh: 8/10 The menthol in this product feels great immediately after use, but does your skin feel truly refreshed without moisture?4. Cleanse: 10/10 This cleans, and it cleans well. To be fair, I don’t wear makeup, but for those who wear a simple moisturizer, this cleans at least as well as your average bar of facial soap.Concluding thoughts: This product should not be marketed as a “4-in-1”, but as a simple cleanser. It is inexpensive, but there are even cheaper products that perform as least as well if not better than this. (SeeBoots Expert Sensitive Gentle Cleansing Wash.)
Pretty good cleanser
This cleanser is suppossed to detoxify but I’m not sure about that claim or how to even tell if it is indeed detoxifying my skin. I like the pump dispenser, great for in the shower and the smell is not overpowering or too much. It is oil free which is great for my skin type. It did clean and also stimulate my skin as packaging says, that would be do to the eucalyptus extracts, which is also suppossed to be purifying. Many reviews say that their skin was very “tingly”, I did feel a slight tingle(which I call stimulating) from the eucalyptus and the menthol. My face didn’t feel tight as some mentioned. It felt clean, slightly tingly. I would have to recommend this as a good regular cleanser but I can’t say that it is a 4-in-1 cleanser. Their product site says it should detoxify, tone and refresh. I won’t purchase because I didn’t see any difference in my skin other than the tingle which I attribute to the menthol but no indication that it is working any harder than any other cleanser.
Cleans well, slightly irritating.
I love to try out different cleansers on my face, as I am in search of the one that makes me look twenty years old with perfect, acne free skin. Obviously, no cleanser is going to cleanse twenty (or more) years off my face, but preventing acne is another story. This cleanser leaves my skin clean, not very dried out, and doesn’t leave acne forming residue. Makeup comes right off, even the stuff that’s supposed to stay on all day. It comes out of the bottle in a nice foam, which allows you to clean your face with only one pump worth of cleanser. It rinses off fairly easily, without a lot of rubbing. Those are the good points.However, neither this cleanser nor any other will “detoxify” my face. A face doesn’t have anything toxic on it or in it, and no cleanser in the world will remove what isn’t there. The cleanser also says that it will leave my skin “healthier-looking and refreshed.” My skin looked clean when I was done cleaning it, not “healthier looking.” It looked like the same face, only clean. The label also says that it “refreshes” my skin. It did provide a tingle, which I suppose is refreshing, but that tingle came from eucalyptus and menthol, which are both well-known skin irritants. If you have acne prone skin, you need the gentlest cleanser that will remove all the makeup, oil and dirt from your skin, and the irritants in this can trigger more acne, not less!I don’t have a sensitivity to eucalyptus or menthol, although they both left my skin feeling a bit tight and tingly for a while. I’ll probably finish this bottle, but this isn’t the cleanser I’ve been searching for. Too bad. I could have lived with the silly, incorrect claims on the label if the cleanser inside didn’t irritate my face while trying to “refresh” it.
This is indeed a refreshing face cleanser.My face felt really clean after using it. I particularly enjoyed the light herbal scent.All in all, this is a great product if you want to give your face a deep cleanse.
Had good success but there’s a problem
I have used Bioré nose strips off-and-on over the years so I was curious how good their cleanser would be. As it turns out, it will clean your face, but then leave it a bit dry, requiring the addition of a moisturizer.
Biore 4 in 1 Detoxifying Cleanser
The 4 in 1 detoxifying foam is my favorite facial cleanser. It controls my oily T zone without drying out the rest of my skin. I’ve noticed clearer, softer skin with less noticeable fine lines since I started using this product. As long as Biore keeps making this, I’ll keep using it. I’d recommend this to anyone, with any type of skin.
Effective facial cleanser
Bioré 4 in 1 Detoxifying Cleanser is a thin foam with a moderate scent of eucalyptus. It is very effective at cleaning the face, even the oily areas. It rinses thoroughly and leaves the skin feeling fresh and taut and even a little tingly for a minute or two. It’s very refreshing and the smell is relaxing.
