Biore Charcoal Pore Minimiser Review!


Activated charcoal seems to be the number one ingredient for skincare products at the moment and I have been on the hunt to find the perfect product for myself! Although it's usual and more original use is for being used in hospital emergency rooms to treat alcohol poisoning and drug overdoses, it's been proved to also be quite useful as a skincare ingredient. The way it works is by attaching to toxins in the stomach and absorbing them before the bloodstream can. The theory behind including activated charcoal in beauty products is similar hence why it's recently rise in popularity. Science lesson over!

Well a few weeks ago I made a cheeky little order to Superdrug for a few much needed toiletries when I realised that selected skincare products had a free product deal if you brought any two products. And since I already had one product already, I just needed to find number two so I could get my free gift and that's when I came across the Biore Charcoal Pore Minimiser!

Now a couple of weeks ago I did buy a 3 step blackhead clearing kit and ever since then my skin has been a lot clearer so I'd like to think that the pore minimiser did already have a bit of a head start but even so it still impressed me with the results. After using it for a couple of weeks I started to notice my pores looking smaller and smaller as the days went on and even now they're only noticeable in my more "severe" areas.

Not only has it helped minimise my pores but it's helped clear my skin and control some of my oily/shiny skin problems. Instead of needing a powder top up after an hour or two, I can now last at least half a day, and although that doesn't sound a lot - it's amazing for me!

Overall I'm in love and I'd happily repurchase when I've run out. As I mention above the minimiser was included in an offer when I brought it but I'm not sure if it's still running at the moment. Either way it's only £5.99 at Superdrug which isn't a huge amount considering how well it worked!
