Biore Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser Review

As much as I hate to admit it I have really been struggling with my skin lately. I have oily/combination skin and just haven't been able to control breakouts ...and I'm 27 years old!! (well 28 next week..but who's counting) I have tried alot of different face washes lately, Cetafil...worked pretty good but once colder weather hit it was a little drying on my skin and didn't help fight the breakouts as well as in the summer with combination of the summer sun, then I tried Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash...which really dried out my skin leaving it looking dull and still not preventing breakouts. So after all that nothing has really given me the results I was looking for...results similar to when I was using Proactiv. The only reason I haven't gone back to Proactiv is the cost I want a great cleanser at a low I really asking for too much?

Well Biore doesn't think so! I was on a mission to find the perfect face wash so I did some research on which were the top ranked. I kept coming across Biore Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser so I finally decided to try it out. WOW am I glad I did!! Not only did it clear up a mild breakout I had within days it prevents them from coming back!! My face hasn't broken out since I started using it on November 30th! That even includes that "special time of the month" when I am always prone to breakouts and I understand why they call it "Ice" Cleanser it's because of the cool fresh feeling after washing your face so it's great wake up in the morning especially for me because I am NOT a morning person. I would definitely recommend this cleanser to anyone like me who is struggling with their skin!

Biore Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser has won the ALLURE Beauty Award for Best Face Wash 2008 & 2009! The bottle also claims to work 68% better than ProActiv.

I also love this product. I'm 21 and still get breakouts a few more around that time of the month. If you have oily skin try this product. I'm considering getting the Triple Action Astringent to minimize the size of my pores.
