A to Z: C is for Cleanser

Facial cleanser that is!

For this post, I'm going to review my current face wash, which is Biore's Combination Skin Balancing Cleanser.

I'm usually not one to be swayed by names, but when I was in desperate need of a face wash because I was out, I had no choice. I ran to the CVS by my work and picked up this bottle of Biore because I recognized the name, it said it was for combination skin, and it was relatively cheap. I have owned a few Biore things in the past, and they worked pretty decently, so I went for it.

This product is...alright. I have mixed feelings about it. 

I figured, with the nice price tag and the talk of moisture and balancing, it would be great for my dry, winter skin. 

And really, it's ok. It's not some miracle product. It's not perfect by a long shot. After using this product, my skin still feels a little tight and dry, like with most cleansers. And it doesn't seem to "balance" my skin as well as I was hoping. 

I wish that, since it's such a well known brand, it worked a little better. I still have serious dry spots on my cheeks and an oily T-zone. It just helps keep my face clean without making the problem worse.

For now, I rely on my moisturizer (which you'll see in a couple of days) to keep my skin healthy. I hope that soon I'll be able to find a cleanser I can absolutely adore. And when I find it, trust me, you guys will be the first to hear about it. 

Thanks for reading!
