Biore Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash

Biore is a Japanese brand, currently under Kao Corporation which also manages Laurier, Liese (the bubble hair dye~), Curel and many other brands, including Jergens!! I love Jergens' Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer =) Might be doing a review soon on that... I'm not going to delve deep into Kao Corporation's beliefs and values, you guys may read up on it if your're interested.


Well back to Biore, they carry some interesting products, mostly gotta do with  facial cleansing like facial wash and make-up remover sheets, etc. Quite interested in their make-up remover sheets, have not used make-up remover sheets before...but i'm currently still on my Bifesta Make-up Remover. It's real good with the non-rinse function but i'm lazy...lazy enough to think that digging for cotton wool to pump the make-up remover onto is troublesome. Haha...I suppose make-up remover sheets are meant for lazy people like me, i'll try to get  my hands on it next time ^^. What i'm reviewing today is the Biore Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash~

I actually bought this quite awhile ago when the hype about it was pretty high, but i guess it got chucked somewhere that the sun don't shine until i unearthed it recently and decided to do a review on it. Got totally sold by the pink and white packaging and not to mention the word 'marshmallow' !! Any girl would be a sucker for sweets and fluff and what not. Well, i bought the refill pack since i have foam dispenser (from Daiso) at home, would not hurt to use it instead. Save the earth~!


The Biore Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash promises deep but gentle cleansing by their ultra fine fluffy foam bubbles which are smaller than your pore size (not sure how true is that ...) and boast that it contains 40% beauty serum for the extra quench to your skin, keeping it moist and supple. Sounds yummy? The next best part is why i'm turning towards foam wash.....instant foam!!! No need for lathering!! Did i mention i was lazy?

My 200ml pink Daiso Foam Dispenser...only SGD2!!

For those who thinks that refill packs are a pain in the ass, fret not, refilling a Biore Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash have never been as easy.... just tear and here comes the part where stuff usually spills here and there but this refill pack has this~!! 

Spill-prevention tubing!

After using it, i do not think that 'marshmallow' is right description for it and still dubious about the 40% serum thing works. But the foam is really really soft and enveloping!! I don't know how to describe this but it feels really....addictive? Like you just want to keep puffing these white fluffy foam against your face all day. Do i sound crazy? 

After 3-5 pumps....feels like clouds...or what i imagine clouds to be =)

Gravity-defying~ ^^
It isn't like your usual foam wash, where it really easy to wash off. You might have to put a little bit more effort and water to wash the Biore Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash off to get a slight squeaky 'clean' feel (not strong 'squeaky' though). I do feel the skin tightening feeling after i dry my face BUT my skin felt really soft and supple and clean too!! So not really sure about the serum and moisturizing, but you can definitely get this if you are bored of your usual facial cleanser and looking for something novel. 

For those with dry skin, there's the Marshmallow Whip Extra Moist Facial Wash, which comes in the yellow/gold pump instead of the normal pink one. Not really sure whether there's much difference between this and the normal one, but no harm getting it since there's no price difference. You can get the bottled Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash at SGD13.90 and the refill at SGD10.90 at the stores. 

Thanks for reading and hope this post helps!!
