Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub ($6.99) is an anti-acne facial scrub that utilizes salicylic acid while exfoliating with microbeads to help slough away dead skin cells. This product is alcohol-free (alcohol is a huge no-no in skin products!), which is always a big plus when considering an exfoliant and regular skin product. It does have menthol in it, which gives the product its tingling sensation when used. I find I keep this in my shower caddy and reach for it occasionally. It does tickle my nose a bit, because of the menthol, but I know I’m a bit overly sensitive when it comes to that kind of thing. The microbeads are incredibly gentle, and I feel like this is a good abrasiveness level for an everyday or every other day scrub.

Get yours at or your local drugstore!

    Aaagggh microbeads!! NOOOO!

    I read this article about how tiny plastic microbeads are filling the ocean with plastic. Little animals eat them, those little animals get eaten by bigger ones, and they work their way up the food chain and cause who-knows-what. It’s really scary.

    Maybe — hopefully — the microbeads in this product are just jojoba or something biodegradable!

    But anyways, I’ve stopped buying products with little plastic (polyethylene) exfoliation beads in them!

    This product works great! It was the first biore product that I bought. It dramatically unclogged my pores and made it super soft. I recommand it and mostly ALL the other Biore products.

    I am 32 years old and have been suffering from VERY oily, acne prone skin since I was a teen. I have tried everything under the sun, proactiv, clinique, accutane, retin a, you name it I did it, but to no avail, I still had break outs and oily skin. One day I was shopping and saw this Shielo Anti-Aging Complexion Scrub and decided, what the heck, I have nothing to lose.

    My skin cleared up completely within 2 DAYS people! It’s smooth,clear, and a lot less oily. I will never use anything else again. Thank you Shielo for this product!!
