Beauty on a Budget: Biore Skin Preservation Review

Biore+Skin+Preservation+2
Too old for acne? Occasionally get a blemish here and there? Want a skincare regime that’s affordable and meant for your 30 something skin?

The new Biore Skin Preservation Collection is a new line of skin care created exclusively for those of us who are well out of our teens and settling into a some what normal skin time.

This actually fits right in with my skin as is. My skin is pretty normal, no break outs or acne as I’m a bit too old for those days. It’s dry in certain areas, a bit uneven at time, even dull, and of course it suffers on a rare occasion with a pimple or two. It’s in between skin which is exactly what the new Biore Collection caters too!

Jump ahead for a peep at the new collection!

Although the Muse normally relies on Lush and as of late H20+ as her skin care of choice she’s quite a fan of Biore and thinks they make great items at an affordable price. If you’re wanting a skin care line with an inexpensive price tag to address issues such as fine lines, uneven skin tone, blackheads, etc…..but you aren’t of an age where your skin is completely out of a wack ala your teen years this new collection should suit. The new line consists of several items for moisturizing, exfoliating, and cleansing your skin.

One item that was particularly interesting is the Biore Self Preservation Dual Fusion Moisturize + SPF 30 ($15). Hmmm SPF 30 in a drugstore brand? Coolness. This dual phase moisturizer hydrates as it defends against UVA and UVB. The packaging is actually a dual pump which evenly distributes sun protection and moisturizer. For something that contains SPF it’s incredibly lightweight and non greasy.

Biore Self Preservation Clean Things Up ($7) is a gel cleanser which is incredibly gentle on the skin. Some Biore cleansers have dried me out in the past but this is quite gentle and washes clean away. This fresh scented cleanser starts out as a gel and gently lathers up on your face rinsing away dirt and grime.

Biore Self Preservation Even Smoother ($15) is a smooth exfoliating scrub to gentle buff away dry skin and reveal brighter, even skin.

Biore+Skin+Preservation+9
Biore Self Preservation Hard Day’s Night ($15) is a night time moisturizer for alleviating dryness and dullness. It’s quite lightweight for an night cream but it manages to absorb easily and leaves my skin nice and fresh come morning. I haven’t noticed any difference in dullness but I’ve only been using for a week so far.

Biore Self Preservation See the Future Eye Cream ($15) is the newest eye cream in the Biore line. This sports a straight tip applicator quite like the Prescriptives Wrinkle Treatment that was recently released. The tip allows for precise application of the cream. Supposedly it brightens dark circles, fights fine lines, and battles puffiness. I haven’t used it as of yet as I’m busy testing a new eye cream but I’m quite curious how well it will do combating my under eye woes! I wish more eye creams sported an applicator like this as I’m a victim of using way too much eye cream sometimes.

Overall, the entire Biore Skin Preservation line is a tad higher when compared to other Biore products however drugstore’s always have sales and these particularly pieces are a tad more posh taking the SPF and the likes into consideration. If you’re seeking a good quality skincare with a decent price tag I’m always one for recommending Biore.

The entire collection is available now at your local drugstore.

    Thanks so much for this! I use the duo moisturizer and agree that it is really lightweight. I was thinking of using other products from this line like the night cream and gel cleanser but since my skin is pretty dry and only breaks out once a month, do you think these would be too drying or not good for my skin? Any better suggestions? I use Philosophy’s Purity Made Simple to cleanse right now but I still get dry patches once in a while.
    Thanks!

      hi again Lena!

      My pleasure. I liked the duo as well. Mmm depends really. You might want to avoid the gel cleanser if you’re dry especially right now in the winter as it may may your face a bit tighter. The night Cream should be good though. I still get dry patches with Purity too. I find an oil cleanser is best :) It doesn’t give me any dry patches and rinses clear away! I hope this helps!
