Product Review : Bioré Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash

I was mega excited about this! I've always loved my Bioré Make up remover so you can imagine my excitement when they brought this Bioré Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash to Singapore's Watsons! I'm a marshmallow lover so you can always spot me roasting them at a BBQ / in my oven! So yea, I quite like their concept of a marshmallow like foam just because I am in love with marshmallow.

Cute foam with wings is always appreciated. Okay honestly, the packaging is clean, simple and cute. However, it's a little too fat for my preference. I'd prefer something I can hold with one hand to pump the foam out instead of resting it on a flat surface. If it has to be placed on a flat surface before we can pump it, I would say that they should extend the neck of the product a bit so I can actually slot my hand in. I'm just anal about getting foam onto my product, if you have this product along with fat hands, you should get what I mean.

The foam is supposed to be ultra fine and enriched with collagen to give you the baby smooth skin we all desire. You can also get 150 pumps out of this bottle but I can't confirm that because ya don't expect me to count do ya xD

A small description!

Let's not forget the how-to-use and the ingredients list!

This is the foam that everyone sees on the advert...

This is the closest I could get. And this is THREE pumps already :/ Let's face it, you're not going to get that perfect fluff of foam unless someone pumps it for you / you use 10 pumps / photoshop it or something.

This is the normal foam you'd get from a regular facial wash. Not that it doesn't foam well, it's just not as soft and air whipped as the Bioré one!

Once again, the advert's take of the foam upside down.

Here's my little lump! But anyway, I've gotten my point over. Remember my post on a certain BB mousse super long ago? Good foam / mousse isn't supposed to just plop off when you turn your hand upside down! What does this mean? SCORE!

See how beautiful she is and how that lovely dense foam is cushioning her skin!

Of course, I can't take a picture if both my hands are occupied with using the foam. So I came up with another idea to show you how bouncy the foam is!

Can you tell? If your foam isn't dense and cushiony like this one is, your fingers will probably just sink in. Look at this :D It has the boing boing kinda feel, like a really soft sponge and you can feel it ever so slightly resisting the pressure from your fingers~

It's not flattened even after my fingers exert pressure on it. SCORE 2!

So. The big question, is this Bioré Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash a yay or a nay?

In thorough cleansing, it's definitely awesome. The creamy foam you see is made out of TONS of bubbles that are even SMALLER than your pores! Because it is that tiny, it can get in all the tiny areas and flush out those dirts. The plus factor is that this foam is collagen enriched so it'll moisturize your skin. It's true for me, my skin doesn't feel tight or dry after using this but I still proceed with my regular skincare after this. Texture wise, this is definitely awesome. As mentioned above, the foam is bouncy and smooth, really feels so luxurious when you slather it all over your face. I like to use two pumps, I know it sounds like it's a lot but since you're already pampering your skin, why not be generous with it? I dot the foam on my cheeks, forehead, chin and nose before spreading it out evenly. Sometimes I let it sit for 5 seconds simply waiting for the bubbles to fizz away!

If you've been reading Domokie, you'll know I'm very sensitive towards the scent of a product. I did not like the scent of this at all. Reminded me of something somewhat unpleasant. That is not a big issue as I can stop breathing while I'm using this and resume after I wash it off. The scent doesn't linger so it's alright. I've also talked about packaging at the beginning of the post.

This product is available from major supermarkets and medical stores, Watsons included, for just $13.90 and this has a refill pack too. So my verdict? Definitely  a YAY because it's affordable and efficient. I love products like that. I don't need a branded facial foam that costs $50 or so, if it works, it's good, it's cheap, I'll use it.

Scent : ★ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ (Not a fan of the scent)
Texture : ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ (It's really lovely to use, rich dense foam is <3!)
Cleansing effect : ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ (Clean, moisturized, smooth and plump~)
Overall : ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ (It's quite a lovely product minus the scent!)
