Biore Acne Mild Care Oil Control Foam Cleanser Review

Biore New Acne Mild Care Oil Control consists of the TRICILOSAN formula which is bacteria-resistant and effective in treating the problematic acne on your face, preventing them from re-appearing. It can form high-density foam which can best perform its function as a cleanser to rinse off all the unwanted oil, dirt, grease on your face, leaving your skin with purified and bright condition.

★ Scent? Light 

★ Consistency? Thick foam

★ Skin Type? All skin types

★ Feel on skin? Gentle. There's no tugging on my face

★ Oil Control? Not really

★ Price? $5.80

★ RepurchaseYes


I really like this foam cleanser. I purchased it at awhile back. No allergic reactions!!!!  I use it in the morning and at night, and it doesn't leave my face feeling tight and dry.  I think that this cleanser is great for acne. I've had only one pimple pop up this month.

It doesn't really do anything for controlling oil. I wash my face around 7 a.m., and my face is oily by the time it's 9 or 10 a.m. Even though it doesn't control my oil, I still think this cleanser is great because of  it's ability to control acne. I should have purchased more than one because it is currently out of stock. I have finally found a great cleanser, and it's out of stock (T_T)  I hope they bring it back.

Torani Syrup Review

Hello everyone!! This is another sponsored review for SheSpeaks and Torani. I was sent two 25.4 oz bottles of syrup and five$1 off coupons. This time, I received Peppermint and Salted Caramel. I am very pleased with these flavors. I recently ran out of my Torani Vanilla flavored syrup, so these came just in time!

Torani Peppermint Syrup

With the cool taste and refreshing fragrance of freshly-picked mint, this flavor is an invigorating addition to any beverage. Just add 1 oz. of this classic to mochas, hot chocolate, and blended drinks.

Sugar Cookies with Peppermint Flavored Icing 
My sister made homemade sugar cookies and icing. She added Torani Peppermint Syrup to the icing, and she topped the cookies with peppermints.

Torani Salted Caramel Syrup

The richness of buttery caramel is brought to new heights with a pinch of salt in this delectable syrup made especially for iced coffee drinks. Add 1 oz. to brewed or iced coffees, espresso, steamed milk,and more.
