Review: Kao Biore Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash

Graphics credits to Biore & TheSampleStore (some graphics amended by me)


Japanese ladies always try to reduce the stress at every skin care steps!
Japanese girls’ habits:
- Foaming Net to create quality foam to cushion stress
- Limits actual cleansing to 1min.

Foam is the secret behind effective, gentle cleansing.
Japanese ladies puts a lot of effort (2-3x the time of cleansing) to generate consistent smooth fluffy foam (with foaming net) to:
1. Clean better with finer bubbles
2. Cushion the cleansing stress from hand on face

Ideal Foam is……
2.Dense and don’t drip even when flipped upside down
3.Smooth and bouncy
4.Very small bubbles
* Lather by hand is flat, inconsistent with large bubbles that drip

About Biore Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash
Baby smooth yet clean after feel!
Collagen – Moisturising
Ultra fine foam – Better cleansing abilities (Ultra fine foam is made up of bubbles that are smaller than pores -200 micron)
Gentle, effective and fun cleansing experience:

- Spread well, rinse well

More enjoyable cleansing:
1. Dense, soft foam with just a pump
2. Cushiony foam that is gentle and prevent cleansing stress on face (High density and Bounciness of foam cushions the hand pressure on skin and acts as a massager)
3.Spread well, rinse well

Recently, TheSampleStore sent me the Biore Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash for review.
Its the NEW range of facial wash by Kao Biore! You might have seen it at Watson shelves lately, their packaging is so cute and pinkish, it draws almost every passer-by's attention! =D

The facial wash is made in JAPAN, hence the japanese words on the front of the packaging. The back part was sticked over so we can understand.. If you peel off this sticker, you'll see the japanese wordings printed on the bottle itself.
On the sticker, prints the Manufacturing date (Mine shows 16062011). Note there's soluble collagen in the ingredient list. I assume that is the collagen that they are talking about? ^^

Here shows how the fine bubbles dispensed out from the bottle looks like... After spreading it out with my fingers, the bubbles are gone, leaving a sticky feeling on my hand.

Following 2 pics shows:
- 1 full pumpof the Biore facial wash foam
- 2 full pumps of the Biore facial wash foam

2 full pumps of foam on my palm and when I tilt it downwards, they still stay on my palm!

My usual facial cleansing routine
- After removing makeup, slightly damp my face
- Dispense facial foam on palm
- Adds a little water to both hands and starts to lather
- After lathering, bubbles are formed and I start to cleanse my face with the foam
- After awhile, the foam gets lesser, I will add alittle more water on hand and lather somemore
- Then cleanse again with the foam, concentrating at corners, edges, jawline and areas that have bigger pores so as to fully remove all dirt and makeup from face.
- Lastly, rinse face

And now, with Biore Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash, my New facial cleansing routine is:
- After removing makeup, slightly damp my face
- Dispense 2 pumps of Biore facial wash foam on palm
- Start cleansing my face with the foam
- After awhile, the bubbles gets lesser, I will either choose to add alittle more water on hand and lather, or to use another 1 pump of Biore facial wash
- Then cleanse again with the foam, concentrating at corners, edges, jawline and areas that have bigger pores so as to fully remove all dirt and makeup from face.
- Lastly, rinse face

- Lovely light floral smell, very much reminds me of other Biore products which have similar scent! ^^
- Hassle free, as it minus alot of steps from my usual face cleansing routine. Saves me lots of time on lathering!
- Bouncy ultra fine foam that spreads easily to my whole face and neck, smooth and light on my skin
- The collagen enriched foam makes my skin feel silky smooth after cleansing
- When foam rinsed off from my face, it doesn't at all make my skin feels tight and dry, it almost makes me think that I have put on moisturiser ^◊^
- Usually after my face is towel-dried, the corners of eyes feel the tightest (skin around my eyes are the most dry) but after using Biore Facial wash, I no longer feel so. It only has a slight tight feeling but not like as tight as the last time I often have. ^_^
**Even though I feel that Biore Facial wash is really as great as they advertised, but I still feel that once awhile I need to swap to other facial foam because I am rather used to that old squeaky clean and tight after feel. Yes, the thought might sound alittle crazy but its just how I feel, for now. ^^ Biore Facial wash can cleanse as good & clean as my other cleansers just that it doesn't give me that squeaky feeling anymore, thus I kinda miss that squeaky dry feeling on my face. Lolx~
