When a parcel containing Men’s Bioré Double Scrub Acne Solution Facial Foam arrived my doorstep a month ago, my mind was racing trying to get my heads around on how am I suppose to review a facial foam that is meant for men. Some girls do use their men’s skin care. Well, I don’t. I was left with two choices. I could either ignore the PR sample parcel that I received or I could pass it to my brother. So I happily snap a photo of the product and Whatsapp it to my brother. To my surprise, le brother was excited that a company FINALLY sent me men skin care, which eventually will go to him 😀
Men’s Bioré Double Scrub Acne Solution Facial Foam is the newest edition as an extension to the brand’s newly launched Double Scrub range. Double Scrub is a range that offers specific skin care solution ranging from Deep Cleanse, Oil Control and Whitening to take care of those stubborn blackheads, oily complexion, dull complexion and of course, anti-acne solution.
Double Scrub Acne Solution Facial Foam is designed and formulated for men to combat common men skin concern such as acne, oily skin and dull complexion. What it does is to go deep into the skin or pores, cleanse all the oil and dirt which is known to clog up pores and acne breakout. As you know I’m the skin care provider for my mum and now my brother as well. He uses my cleanser in the bathroom, which I’m alright with since I have 86545700633 tubes of cleanser up on the vanity rack. I was particularly telling him to use the whitening version as he does have quite a bit of acne marks from breakouts. What both of us didn’t know is he is somehow allergic to certain whitening substance that he kept getting more breakout (guilty me!). He managed to pinpoint out that it’s the cleanser that gave him continuous breakout that he switched to other cleanser and now he’s full on this Men’s Bioré Double Scrub Acne Solution Facial Foam.
The main ingredient for this facial foam is Tea Tree Extracts. We all know Tea Tree Extract or Oil works as an anti-bacterial agent that control the growth of acne. The formula in it also uses Japan’s Advanced Scrub Technology with Micro-Crushable Scrub. That’s the reddish looking Red Scrub Beads you see in the cleanser below. These beads will break down during face washing and work it’s way deep into the pores to purify the skin from acne in the most gentle way. It also remove excessive oil build-up and exfoliate acne marks. But that’s not all. What I couldn’t see with my eyes is that the cleanser also contain White Scrub Beads. It coincide with the Red Scrub Beads and revitalize the skin while deeply cleanses the pores.
Now the question is, can we women use men’s skin care products? Men generally have thicker skin than women and their skin are more oilier, more prominent larger pore size and more acidic in pH. So it only make sense that men skin care is more stronger than women because afterall these skin care products are designed to penetrate thicker skin. I’m not sure about you but I’m certainly not comfortable with putting men skin care on my face for the long run. For fun sake, I did used this Men’s Bioré Double Scrub Acne Solution Facial Foam. I say it definitely smells more manly. The scent is just like any typical men fragrance – fresh and fragrance-y. The scent reminds me of Burberry Brit Rhythm or HUGO BOSS BOSS BOTTLED. UNLIMITED. Well, basically all other men fragrance lol. But it’s not bad. I like the smell but I couldn’t stand manly scented facial foam continuously. I’m a girl after all haha!
On me, it cleanses SO WELL. Just like what I expected. My face never felt this squeakily clean before and my face stays oil-free for the next few hours. It is truly a facial foam made for the men. Le brother on the other hand said he’s happy with the cleanser. There is no massive breakout anymore although he still get one huge pimple every two months. Not too bad comparing with what he went through previously. And it’s super affordable too. Once le brother finish these two tubes, I think we will go back for a repurchase.
