Biore: reader giveaway prize packs. Perfect for skin detoxing

Skin detoxing?

You've come to the right place.

We've passed the overindulgent Easter period, we're smack bang into winter... and... oh look. Your skin is as dull as bad reality TV. It needs some oomph, it needs some lovin', it needs some serious derma-TLC.

Getting a detox for your skin happening helps combat breakouts [um, hello... why are 40+ women stull getting zits! Why? WHY?] and Biore products help do that in three easy steps:

Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub (RRP $10.99) - this little genius in a tube helps your pores breathe a sigh of relief, with maximum strength salicylic acid to remove dirt, oil and fight those pesky l'il blackheads. The formula also contains two perfectly spherical sizes of microbeads, which remove dull surface cells without damaging your skin. Schwing - bonus!

Next, we have those Biore Original Deep Cleansing Pore Strips (RRP $5.69) the brand is renowned for. These original formula nose strips instantly remove week’s worth of pore-clogging dirt, oil and stubborn blackheads [ewww]. A weekly strip is the perfect kick start
to your skin detoxifying regime, which will also help to diminish the appearance of pores
over time.

And then we have the Biore Gentle Makeup Removing Wipes (25’s RRP $8.99, 10’s RRP $3.99). Now, I confess, sometimes I could not be are, er, bothered taking off my full made up face after a big night, but take it off I do. I always feel like using wipes is a bit of a cheat's way, but actually, it's not. These babies are infused with the purifying power of green tea, known for its antioxidant protection and detoxifying benefits. The super conditioning formula instantly dissolves dirt, oil and even waterproof mascara – without the greasy residue. Yay for no-greasies. These oil and alcohol free wipes are also the first wipes to be made from 100% natural fibres, for a softer, more luxurious feel that are better for the environment, too.

So, how to score a Biore prize pack - I have five up for grabs, each containing one of these three Biore products?

In the meantime, I have trialed the new Biore range and... I am uber impressed.

Here is the NEW range [God these people at Biore are goood!]:

The new range Biore skincare range - with new packaging and new products - features a breakthrough cleanser designed to transform combination skin by cleansing efficiently without disturbing your skin’s essential moisture.

Having to choose between treating the oily parts or the dry parts of skin inevitably worsens the imbalance. Enter Bioré Skincare’s new Combination Skin Balancing Cleanser, developed with 'Skin Purifying Technology', a revolutionary technology comprised of dirt-seeking cleansing molecules that target and cling to impurities. The breakthrough product cleanses skin without stripping away its natural moisture.

Bioré Combination Skin Balancing Cleanser deep cleans oily T-zones while thoroughly yet gently cleansing drier areas, and after two weeks of use, combination areas are more balanced.

Bioré Combination Skin Balancing Cleanser is a part of the new look Bioré Skincare collection, now colour-coded to help you find the perfect targeted regimen for your complexion: orange is ideal for Complexion Clearing, blue is for Deep Cleansing, pink is for Makeup Removing and teal is for Nourishing Care to moisturise and protect.

Love this stuff, love it all. My new skincare companion. The new Biore range will be available from August.

    I am desperately in need of a face detox while I am going through this diet because my every part of my skin is going through changes. Good changes but changes that need real bad overhaul or manintenace.

  2. Unfortunately my busy schedule prevents me from getting to the a Beauty therapist, therefore my sensitive skin is often affected by patchy breakouts. Breakouts caused by regular use of make up that builds up & clogs pores. Regardless of how you clean your skin at home you still need to find a way to deep cleanse & I have found the only way to effectively do so at home is with Biore unclogging scrub. My skin really feels like it breath again with this gem of a product!

  3. My skin is dry and lifeless,
    I'm in dire need of a change,
    New skincare is the perfect answer,
    Especially from the Biore range!

  4. Because after 40 years of living, my skin needs, craves, desires a new feel ... It needs some loving !!!

  5. I have been using the same skincare range since my teens (ie. many years ago!), and haven't seen any improvements or benefits. I would love to have Biore products to detox my skin, because since giving birth, I have also developed acne as an adult and it can be very embarrassing! Thankyou for the opportunity!

  6. My skin is full of imperfections. It needs detox now because I've recently moved to a more humid area than the one I used to live. I don't know what it is, but ever since moving, my skin took a turn for the worst. I've breaking out like never before and blackheads are a thing of every day. Nothing helps! I am hoping that Biore would help. Thank you so much! engineergirl@mail.com

  7. My skin is in Dire need of detox because the summer has finally arrived and I live in a terribly dry area. I have tons of little acne here and there but the black head problem is bad. Thank you for the giveaway Biore! yestfl@hotmail.com

  8. 46 years old and still having issues with acne..ugh! I'm getting a bit fed up with my skin; it's either so dry I could sand rust off car bumpers or so slick it looks like I washed with Crisco. The pores on my nose are the worst and seem to clog every few days. I know I should be removing my mascara at night too but it often seems like a chore to go in and wash my face, yet again so the makeup remover wipes would be a blessing.

    My skin is in DIRE need of a detox because after all the easter eggs I consumed at easter (and since!) I think I am nearly oozzing chocolate out of my pores.

  10. With a change in diet (thanks to some surgery), my skin is breaking out like you wouldn't believe, whilst my body purges out all the toxins. I need help in controlling my breakouts, dry skin, oily skin and everything in between. I want my skin to glow once again and I hope to achieve that with Bioré.

  11. My skin is DIRE because... when your boyfriend says 'you have large pores and I can see your blackheads', say no more. I mean the fact that my boyfriend knows what a blackhead is, should win me this pack :)
