A Biore Japanese Tea Party
An intimate Japanese tea party complete with a sampling of the custom blended tea by Alex Probyn, was the setting for the launch of the new look Biore deep cleansing pore strips. I have never been a fan of herbal teas but the concept of Biore is about taking care of the inside as well as the outside, so there was nothing for it but it taste the shots of pure ginger, liquorice, and other ingredients within the specially blended Biore tea. I sit here now like one of the boys from the ‘Friends’ couch as they applied their strips for an oily t-zone; I like that the process is very simple although I do wish there were a variety of sizes. I have to use two face strips to cover my forehead, and I would prefer if there were a couple of square strips that could go on my cheeks. Apply the strips to wet cleansed skin, the Biore combination balancing cleanser was also included in the goodie bag so have been using daily for the past week. It is a foaming wash that has actually balanced my skin it is hard to find a cleanser that is sensitive for the dry areas, but also strong enough to tackle the oiler areas. I accidentally dropped a strip in to water but it stuck better than just simply wetting my face, and after 10-15 mins slowly peel off. My skin did feel dry, and tight but that was remedied after a quick rinse, and moisturise, and my skin does look much clearer. The range is very affordable the 200ml combination balancing cleanser is only £4.99 at Superdrug , whlist the 14 piece nose and face strips are available for £12.44 on Amazon.
