My Beauty Vice


Anyone that knows me knows I’m a picker. If I see a bump on myself or my family, I immediately reach over to pick it. Needless to say, it drives them crazy. At night when we are getting ready for bed my husband always makes me go up 20 minutes before him because he knows I’ll spend 15 minutes in the bathroom after I brush my teeth inspecting my face for any sign of pore or blemish that I could pick (so gross, I know!). That’s why I love the Bioré Strips. I’ll throw on a Strip while I’m getting B ready for the day and voilà my pores are clean and my skin is smooth.

I’ve been a fan of the Classic Strips since high school. (Who hasn’t!) Pulling them off is always my favorite part. It’s weirdly satisfying seeing all the gunk it pulls out. Total guilty pleasure! They just came out with the new Bioré Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips which are made with natural charcoal to absorb oil and reduce shine. They are amazing!

Are you a fan of the Bioré Strips too? Bioré has teamed up with Brittany Snow to create the “Strip with Bioré” challenge. Join the challenge by posting a picture of yourself using either the Classic or new Charcoal Strips on Twitter or Instagram with hashtags #stripwithbiore and #sweeps. Then tag three friends in your post for a chance to win a trip to LA to walk the red carpet with Brittany Snow herself! (You can check out the funny things she likes to do in 10 minutes as she takes the challenge and full entry details here.)

Alright – out with it! What are some of your biggest beauty offenses?

    Such cute pics! My biggest offense is not enough water. I can always tell such a difference in my skin when I’m hydrated!

    This came at the perfect time for me, last night I was just thinking about making this more part of my beauty routine! Thanks for the recommendation!

    I just tried the charcoal strip for the first time yesterday and I loved it! I never liked the classic ones because I felt like they really hurt (I am a wimp..), but for some reason it was so much better! And my skin felt so good after. My new guilty pleasure too!

    I love these, they are especially handy in the winter when my skin kind of hates me 😛

    I always loved the classic strips but haven’t used them in so long. Really want to try these new ones! I tried making a homemade scrub that was supposed to help with blackheads—but honestly I think nothing is as immediately satisfying as the Biore strips.

    I am a huge fan of the pore strips also! I love anything with charcoal in it because it seems to really help my skin and restore. Thanks for sharing!!

    Too funny! My boyfriend is such a picker too! And it drives me nuts hahaha. I may need him to try Biore!

    I am the same way! I am always picking at things on myself and others, and yes it is strongly satisfying to see what comes off of those pore strips!! I will have to try these out 🙂

    Haha! Same thing here in my house. My husband swears God gave him pimple and pores just for me to pop them! I know it’s gorse but I can’t help it!
