Today I have something different for you.
This month I received the Biore Baking Soda voxbox from Influenster.
This is only my second Influenster box so it was super exciting.
This box included two products - The Baking Soda Pore Cleanser, and the Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub
Basically the idea behind this is that baking soda is a good gentle exfoliator.
So lets start out with my thoughts on the Baking Soda Pore Cleanser
When you pump this out you do notice it has a bit of a gentle-gritty texture (if that makes sense) then you add some water and lather it and apply it to your face. It was easy to apply, but I found it to have a real soapy feel to it (I'm a die hard Rodan + Fields fan so I know the soapy lather of most cleaners just dries out your skin so I really disliked the soapy feel). And I did notice throughout the day it seemed to have dried out my skin. I think I would have preferred it if it had come with a toner, and a moisturizer with it to combat the dryness - maybe thats just me. I'm not going to continue using this one, but I've found it a home with someone who will love it.
Next up is the Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub
This is a powder that you add water to and it "activates" and then you use it as a scrub, but the baking soda dissolves as you scrub so you don't over exfoliate. I found this one a bit hard to apply since when you add the water it just gets a bit runny. I think this will just take some trial and error.
However I did quite like the way this made my skin feel, clean and soft.
It did make my skin feel a bit tight but not uncomfortably so.
I'm going to continue to use this one.
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
