Skin Care Blog Post - Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub Review

Adult acne happens to more people than you think. According to, "at an estimate, acne affects...50 percent of adult women."

50 percent. Ouch! Bet you all adult acne sufferers, myself included, are in search of a good cleanser.

Enter Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub. "Santa" left it for me in the stocking last Christmas, and it claims to treat acne and clear skin. After two months of using this product, I am ready to review. Hope you all think it's useful.

Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub

The Claim - Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub (according to

  • Give pores a breath of fresh air

My Take - Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub

  •  Formula felt tingly on the face. A definite refresher.

The Claim - Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub (according to

  • Our gentle yet effective face scrub uses perfectly spherical beads—not jagged edges—and the pore-unclogging power of salicylic acid to deep-clean clogged pores.

My Take - Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub

  • The beads were tiny, smooth and round. 
  • They felt really nice against my skin.

The Claim - Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub (according to

  • The scrub unclogs pores by penetrating deep down where blemishes start, and helps prevent future breakouts.

My Take on Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub

  •  No offense, but I honestly did not feel the scrub "penetrate deep down." How are you supposed to tell, any way?

The Claim - Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub (according to

    • Show the door to nasty pore-cloggers with this face scrub and get ready for beautifully clear, smooth skin.

    My Take - Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub

    •  I do feel that the scrub cleaned well. However, I don't feel the scrub alone cleared clogged pores. 
    • I use it after steaming my face, which opens pores. So of course the scrub cleans deep into the pores.
    • I don't think it is any more special than other scrubs.

    The Claim - Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub (according to the bottle)

      • Acne treatment and complexion clearing.

      My Take - Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub

      •  I did not see a huge difference in my acne problem.
      • Complexion did not even out as expected


      • Nice scrub. Cleaned well.
      • Great price.
      • Refreshing, tingly sensation after use.
      • Beads felt really good.
      • Thick foam after scrub. Didn't thin out.


      • Did not deep clean like it claimed. 
      • No real adult acne help.
      • Not too much different from other products.

      Overall Rating:



      Maybe. I'd like to try a few other products first.

      Tube-style bottle was easy to use.
      Formula was nice and thick.

      Scrub felt refreshing on the skin.

      Thanks for reading. Hope you found the review helpful.

      Have you tried Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub?

      Do you have any face scrub to suggest?


      1. I have tried this product before, and unfortunately it did not help me much also. I use Cetaphil daily and just bought Garnier The Expert Exfoliator to try.. Will let you know :)

      2. I love exfoliating scrubs and I'm pretty sure I've tried biore before! Great price, great results, win/ win :)


      3. I love Biore's product!! thanks for the review

      4. Thanks for the fab review, darling!

      7. haven't try biore pore scrub...I have already dry skin and sensitive. I do use scrubs once a week only but, i stock using this two product because they are not harmful to my skin...

        1. QUEEN Helena oatmeal's 'n honey--natural facial scrubs
        2. Face spa facial masque...

      8. Thanks for the honest review. I find that really refreshing. I recently splurged and bought a fancy product endorsed by a fancy celebrity and was sooo disappointed to see absolutely no results, so I really truly appreciate a truthful review!

      9. I haven't tried with using this scrub but Biore has a really nice cleanser that when it's steamed up in the shower really rejuvenates the skin. I love it! And I have the same Clarisonic Mia. Yaaaay! Be careful with using a Clarisonic face brush with a scrub. You don't want to over-exfoiliate and irritate your skin. The Clarisonic already acts as an exfoliater so all it needs is a cleanser. :)

      10. Hmm... I hope they have this here in the Phils. Would love to try it...

      11. i've tried this before too- it's really great and feels so fresh! xx

      12. I used this scrub when I was in high school and loved it at the time. Now I think the St. Ives Apricot scrub works gives better results.

        I love your blog!!

      13. I need to try out this product! I hope I can order it online :)


      14. I haven't used Biore Pore Unclogging scrub but I do use their steam activated cleanser. (awesome!) I like St. Ives scrubs really.

      15. i havent tried this but i do believe in the wonders of clarisonic. i also use a lot of DDF prodcuts (they are expensive, but i really believe they work for my acne prone skin!).

      16. Ooh! I wanted to try this product. I use the Clean and Clear scrubs for exfoliation. They brighten the complexion and do the job for a good price :)

      17. I love your blog!! You are always so informative.

        I have tried Biore Pore before, but it didn't work too well for me... I also tried their blackhead stripes... and that didn't work too well either. Is there a product you;d recommend for getting rid of blackheads?

        I am currently using Origins face exfoliator... It's pretty good.. a little too abrasive for my skin, but it works for now.

        Great post

      18. I've tried this scrub before, it works okay but it's nothing special. There are definitely other products, with just a good price, that are better.

        xo, H

      19. I tried this before and remember linking it!

      20. I've tried this product before, but it didn't work very well for my skin. Now I'm using St. Ives apricot scrub & it seems to be working so far.

        I love your product reviews. =)


      21. I have adult acne and it stinks. It's hormonal, and to top it off I have a condition I need to have diagnosed that is around my nose (seems to be eczema or something, since it goes away with steroids for allergic reaction and comes back, and gets worse with the effing acne scrub)

        I clean my face every day with a scrub with stalyc. acid- and while it does help a little when I am broke out, I don't feel it really prevents breakouts. I've tried everything and feel like I am just stuck with dealing with it!

      22. I think that i can not get this product in Spain,maybe there are similar,but after your post I wanted to try it!

      23. the best scrub that i've tried was the "alchemilla exfoliating face wash cream" because it's gentle and made my skin feel awesome. i won it in a blog giveaway and am SO glad :D i'm not sure where to buy it since i won it, but can check amazon or something doll

      24. This is such a good review!


      25. I've used this before and actually didn't like that tingly feeling afterwards. haha

      26. I love scrubs-I always use them! I have never tried this one though.

      27. I don't have acne but I have a friend I can recommend this too.

      28. i've tried this product but it was too harsh for my skin, it was too drying for me.

      29. I haven't tried this scrub but love my St. Ives apricot scrub a couple times a week. Thanks for the review because adult acne is the worst!

      30. Thanks for the review. I have been looking around for blackhead products, and now know not to waste my time on this product :D
