Using the wrong products happens more often than you think, so it’s important to know what skin type you have to ensure you are using the correct products.

If you are dealing more with problems rather than seeing results, then carry on reading to see how you can get you the gorgeous skin you deserve.  (Psst - We’re also giving away a hamper valued at R2000 to one lucky ruby. Entry details further below.)


If you have oily or combination skin and you are not cleansing properly this could lead to acne and blemishes.

Can clogged pores lead to acne and blemishes? Really? Yes!


Dirt and oil collect around your pores, creating build-up that can clog the skin follicle. If bacteria makes its way to the blockage and grows, this can cause inflammation and result in acne and blemishes. Swelling and redness may linger in the form of whiteheads, blackheads, and red inflamed patches of skin.


So what’s the difference between oily skin and combination skin?


Oily & Normal Skin
You have this skin type if your skin on the entire face gets shiny / greasy two hours after your wash your face.

Bioré Charcoal Range is ideal for normal to oily skin.
Charcoal is a powerful natural ingredient known for its ability to absorb oil and impurities. Bioré charcoal products, with charcoal and Skin Purifying Technology work like a magnet to draw out pore-clogging dirt and give oily skin a deep clean.

Oily to Combination Skin

You have this skin type if your T-zone (your forehead and nose) is oily and your cheeks are dry.

Bioré Baking Soda Range is ideal for combination skin.
Baking Soda is a gentle exfoliant found in nature. On its own, natural baking soda is an alkaline that can dry the skin. Bioré Baking Soda products with natural baking soda gently exfoliate and cleanse without damaging your skin. They help to reduce pore clogs and breakthrough shine in your T-zone area without encouraging dryness and flakiness elsewhere on the face.
