A few days ago one my friends told me that National Write Your Story Day was this week and I thought it would be perfect to not only share the story behind all of the flawless selfies I’ve been posting recently but to tell you guys how I’ve been getting them!
I don’t know about y’all, but my skin has not always been my friend. I had to battle with all the usual bad guys; teen acne and scarring along with blackheads that sometimes look like they should have their own zip code! I thought I was done with the worst of it once I hit my 20’s but then came the thing that people fail to mention, out of this world pores and adult/hormonal acne! There are times that I feel like this is worse than what I had to deal with in my teenage years. I also started wearing makeup more recently and that caused me to change up my cleansing routine. Gone were the days of using a simple remover wipe. I had combination skin and needed to make sure that I was using products for it.
Enter Bioré. It was a brand name I knew and trusted, one I’ve seen family members and friends use for years so I didn’t hesitate when it came to grabbing a box of their pore strips or cleansing masks. But I have to say that they’ve truly changed the game with their One Minute Self Heating Mask and the Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips!
If you’re anything like me, you have a million and things going on in your life and don’t always have time for a traditional mask. You know the ones I’m talking about. The ones where you can’t really move because it’s a piece of cloth or it’s one of those hardening ones so you’re sitting there squinting your eyes at the TV because you can’t wear your glasses and can’t really do anything for 20-30 minutes. This Bioré mask is everything those other masks aren’t! It heats up, doesn’t harden and is literally able to be rinsed off a minute later. Not only that, it purifies pores 2.5x better than other cleansers in a fraction of the time! It’s infused with natural charcoal and cleanses your face by drawing out pore clogging dirt, oil, and impurities. Oh, and the best part is that it might be a warming mask, but it finishes with a cool and tingly oh-so-smooth sensation! In the past I’d limited myself to only putting on masks once every two weeks because that’s all my schedule allowed me to do. This mask changed all that. They come 4 to a box, and are priced reasonably enough to put one on once a week! It’s a treat any for any budget!
Another product that I’m loving from Biore is the Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips. I’ve been using these dermatologist-tested strips for years and they truly are the best for uncloggin pores by removing deep down dirt, oil and even blackheads with just one strip. Yeah, you read that correctly. One strip! All it takes is one of those bad boys to remove 10 days worth of build-up and get you ready for that perfect selfie! One deep clean with these bad boys and you won’t need a filter!
I’m sure that my story is quite similar to a lot of y’all’s out there, and I’m hoping that in sharing mine you know that you’re not alone and that there are products out there that will help you get selfie ready! Head over to Target or pick up a box of the One Minute Self Heating Mask or Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips on Amazon and let me know what you think!
