Cleanser Comparison: Biore Deep Pore Charcoal vs Ponds Clear Balance Facial Foam

Today I’m comparing 2 deep clean cleansers – read on to find out my favourite of the two ๐Ÿ™‚

Ponds Clear Balance Facial Foam

About 2 years ago I picked up the Ponds Clear Balance Smooth Pores Facial Foam. I had seen plenty of ads for Ponds products on my parents Indian networked TV so I knew this was a popular product in India, however it doesn’t have much of a presence in Australia. There were other several other varieties of Ponds cleansers including whitening types (that I am completely against) however what caught my eye was the Smooth Pores.

Prosย 

  • Really deep cleans – quite good with removing makeup
  • Skin feels quite taut after cleansing
  • Smooth skin
  • Minimizes appearance of pores
  • Icy cool effect
  • Travel friendly packaging
  • Affordable
  • Lathersย well

Cons

  • Will dry skin out

Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser

I had read a few reviews of this online before however I noticed Biore is not a huge company and doesn’t often get compared with other like Neutrogena, Garnier etc.

Pros

  • Does not dry out skin
  • Minimizes appearance of pores
  • Icy cool effect
  • Deep cleans very well
  • Affordable
  • Surprisingly pleasant fragrance

Cons

  • Packaging is not travel friendly

Overall

These two cleansers are both amazing! I would recommend them both to you. I am quite surprised they aren’t already more popular. They are both affordable products and neither have veryย much hype surrounding them. If you have dry skin try the Biore, otherwise if dry skin is not a problem try the icy cool Ponds Cleanser. Aussie readers – Biore is readily available at supermarkets and most chemists however the Ponds range is limited to Priceline.

Thanks for reading as always – and if you have tried either of these products I would love to hear your opinion.
