Product Review: Biore Pore Perfect Shine Control Moisturizer

I started religiously using moisturizers only this year and liked how my oiliness lessened even with it on my face. My powder foundation glides smoothly on my skin and doesn't look too matte which I like. So on my quest to finding a better moisturizer, I saw a fellow girltalker selling this Biore Pore Perfect Shine Control Moisturizer and immediately contacted her about this product. After a week, we were able to finally meet and she was really nice and had a smile on her face. Anyway, time for the review.


What I like:
- First of all, I like packaging. It's in a pump bottle and the color is really cute. It is hygienic too as I don't have to use a spatula just to get product from it unlike with moisturizers in tubs. I'll re-use this bottle for other products once I'm done with this.
- Easily absorbed by the skin, dries to a matte finish. Dries in as quick as a minute.
- Consistency is somewhat similar to SkinMD which is cool with me.
- Formulated for those with oily skin.
- Blends with the skin really well.
- I only need less than a pea size for my entire face.
- Oil-free
- Non-greasy
- Controls oil indeed. I don't need to blot until after 4 or 5 hours which is already good given that I have combination-oily skin.
- Smell is somewhat cocomilk-ish and cucumber melon-ish. Smells pleasant but gone in a minute or two.
- Did not break me out

What I don't like:
- Already discontinued.
- No SPF (which is okay with me since I use foundation with SPF)

Overall rating: 4.75/5

Will I buy again? Well, since this has been discontinued, I'll try the other Biore variants once I use up all my other moisturizers. :)


Here's how it looks like:

Happy Wednesday! :P Have to get back to work.

  2. Hey Trace, you may want to check out reviews for the Biore Milk thingie. Soapaholic and Auaualand did a review on it. Based on their reviews, it's pretty good when it comes to oil control. :)
