Got a minute? That’s all you need for this Bioré Self Heating One Minute Mask giveaway

As someone who uses a lot of masks I almost run out of words to describe them but Bioré Self Heating One Minute Mask is unique enough to stand out from the crowd. We mostly know Bioré from the infamous nose strips. I know I was just about addicted to them. They were one of the first skincare items that I always bought. Now Bioré has expanded their repertoire to many items that help with your pores. Let’s think of Bioré as the pore cleansing brand.

Bioré Self Heating One Minute Mask was sent to me to test and it did so much more than I expected it to do. What I learned when I received this is that it was a thermal mask meant to open pores and draw out and dissolve dirt, oil, and surface toxins. This is a very gentle formula that you are exfolilating with by melting away the dirt and oil. biore self heating mask infoI don’t have blackheads any more but I did for most of my teens and early twenties. This would have been so welcome back then but it’s no less welcome as I age. I still get clogged pores that need to be dealt with. Yes I exfoliate often but our skin is dealing with the environment day in and out so we need to keep on top of things.

There are 4 individual packets in the box ($6.99 at Ulta) and it’s recommended that you use this 2 – 3 times per week depending on your skin needs.

This is so easy to use that it really does take just a minute. I prefer using it and then getting in the shower since it can be a bit messy to remove. If you prefer to do it standing at your sink, just have a washcloth ready to remove the mask.

The mask never hardens so it’s not uncomfortable at all. I have no trouble applying it on my wet face but if you do just add a touch more water. While it’s on your face you need to massage it. You’ll feel just the slightest bit of warmth to let you know that the natural charcoal is working. Even though I’m a stickler about cleansing, I still find that sometimes my makeup hasn’t been 100% removed and the Bioré Self Heating One Minute Mask helps with that problem.

Wash it off after your minute and your face is fresh and clean. Using a washcloth assures that you remove all of the product. There is no fragrance, the heat is noticeable but minimal, and when you are done you’re ready for your skincare.

That’s it – 1 minute of effort plus some washing and your pores are cleansed.

I have a confession to make… I love Biore Pore Strips. I’ve used them for as long as I can remember and I’ve always been fascinated with them. If you’ve used them then you know that secret thrill in taking the strip off your nose and looking to see what came out. It’s always a moment of  “eek” for me.

There isn’t anything simpler to use than Biore Nose Strips. You remove one from the package just before use. Then get your nose very wet because the strip needs to stick well. With dry hands apply it with the smooth end on your skin. Press it down and let it sit for 10 – 15 minutes. It gets really stiff. The company compares it to how papier-maiche would look. To remove you can pull it off or wet it and remove it that way. If there’s any residue you’ll find it washes off easily and quickly.

I’ve seen these criticized by many but I think it’s a great low tech, low cost technique to draw out both excess oil and unclog your pores. These are to be used exclusively on your nose. I love that it gets the area at the sides of my nose. I exfoliate often with scrubs and machines but there’s still that area that always seems clogged.
