Clear Skin with Bioré

Can you believe it? My oldest baby is almost a teenager! Where have the years gone?

As the teenage years approach, so too do all the fun teenage skin problems. Pimples, blackheads, oiliness, blocked pores... ugh. I would say that it brings back memories, but I'm still dealing with most of it myself. However, it does bring back memories of my younger years and learning to care for my skin. Yes, I can remember back that far!

In the past few months Ava has really started to take an interest in caring for her skin and treating those nasty breakouts when they occur. Being a kid in the tech age, she's always looking up product reviews online and watching YouTube videos of all sorts of beauty and skin related topics - including those pimple popper videos. You know the ones!

Intrigued by just what's inside her pores, Ava was keen to try out Bioré Pore Strips. She'd seen them in videos and wanted to see what sort of gunk was hiding in her skin! Seeing as she's still quite young and her skin is on the sensitive side, I'm often hesitant to let her try any skin treatments that my be a little harsh, but knowing that Bioré products are trusted and dermatologist tested, I was happy for her to give them a try. Plus, it IS kind of fun and rather satisfying to see just what comes out of your pores!




Now, there are plenty of different products on the market when it comes to clearing pores, but Bioré Pore Strips are the original and the best. Bioré Witch Hazel Ultra Deep Cleansing Pore Strips are my favorite. Formulated with witch hazel, which has long been known for its natural astringent properties, these pore strips are a like a two in one. The strips remove all the gunk from clogged pores and the witch hazel helps minimize the appearance of pores. Hooray!


Both Ava and I gave the pore strips a try and it was quite satisfying to see how much came out of our pores. It was a fun bonding activity to do together too. I'm thinking we might have to make it a weekly ritual. 


Ava's pores aren't quite as congested as mine so while the strip did remove a lot of gunk from her skin, it wasn't as much as she had expected to see from watching YouTube videos. My pore strip definitely made up for it! Spot the difference in her facial expressions as she checks out the used pore strips. Ha! Guess which one was mine!


Along with the pore strips we gave Bioré Witch Hazel Pore Clarifying Toner a try. I can remember buying witch hazel from the pharmacy when I was younger and using it as a toner for my acne prone skin. It did the trick, but kind of stung - like, a lot! Bioré Witch Hazel Pore Clarifying Toner feels a lot more gentle than the witch hazel of my past, but with the addition of salicylic acid, this toner works wonders on congested skin. Ava and I have both made it a part of our daily skincare routine.


Keen to try these great Bioré Witch Hazel products for yourself? Of course you are!
You can find them both online at walmart.com.  At just $8.47 for the pore strips and $6.47 for the toner they're an affordable addition to your skin care routine.
