BIORÉ Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub is touted as a scrub that will never over exfoliate skin as it dissolves in water. as a scrub type product this was interesting to me as I will not purchase scrubs that have micro-beads due to the adverse affects they have on wildlife and the environment. If you are interested in the issue surrounding micro-beads you may find this Guardian article interesting. As such I am always looking for scrubs without micro-beads.
I had seen the BIORÉ Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub on a couple of American vlogs, so decided to hunt this product out in the UK.
My skin is combination with dry patches, and I wanted to see the effect on my skin. I therefore followed the instructions on the packaging that states use for 1 week to seen a result I used BIORÉ Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub in shower every morning for 7 days. The packaging is excellent it has an easy press button that allows the lid to pop open. This is so handy for when you have wet hands.A big thumbs up to BIORÉ for providing sensible, useful packaging for a product.
My thoughts on BIORÉ Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub.
If you like that squeaky clean feel then this may be the scrub for you. However I do find it leaves my skin very tight. The scrub part is provided by sodium bicarbonate which acts gently as it dissolves quickly with water. It does contain limonene and citronella as fragrances, so if you are sensitive to these scents you may want to give the BIORÉ Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub scrub a miss.
Having used for one week solid I can now give a review of this product. I used this in the shower, and I found that the scrubbing action of this didn’t last too long, as the sodium bicarbonate dissolved fairly quickly. Because the scrubbing action was so very mild, I can’t say that my skin felt any smoother. However my skin felt extremely clean every time I used it. As I have stated above my skin felt a little tighter than usual after using this, but I did not seem to develop any further dry patches on my face. On the whole I will continue to use this, but in rotation with other facial cleansers. If you are looking for a scrub with strong scrubbing action then this won’t be for you. It still wins points with me due to the lack of micro beads and the fantastic packaging.
