BioClarity cleanse is the first step of the 3-step clear skin routine designed to combat acne. It is a grey colored tube available in mini (2.25 fl. oz) and value (4 fl. oz) packs at $9.95 and $14.95 respectively. Its key ingredients include Chamomile, Cucumber, and Green Tea.
- It contains green tea which helps in soothing skin and acts as an antioxidant.
- It is good for dry skin.
- Vegan and cruelty-free.
- It makes skin feel more oily, especially if you have oily skin type.
- It feels a little itchy and harsh on the skin.
- It contains phenoxyethanol which further irritates the skin.
The cleanser is a clear liquid to clean up the face before using any other skincare product. However, as a preservative, it uses phenoxyethanol which is a skin irritant. Phenoxyethanol can increase skin allergies and cause skin rashes, blistering, and itching. It may increase the irritation in sensitive skin and skin suffering from conditions like eczema and dermatitis.
While using the cleanser for the first time, it made my skin feel oily which is not exactly welcomed for someone with oily or combination skin. It did not make my skin feel clean at all. However, I still used it for a couple of weeks to see how it affects my face acne. It did not make much of a difference. I decided to change the face cleanser brand and look for something that works on my acne.
I came across Bee Elite Essentials through a social media post and decided to give it a try. The White Willow Bark face cleanser does not contain any harmful preservatives and it makes my face feel clean after washing. It has been a week and I have already started to see a small difference in my appearance. The redness has reduced substantially. I’m going to order the complete regime now to better suit my skin.
BIOCLARITY CLARIFYING MASQUE
BioClarity is a vegan skincare brand specializing in acne skincare. I tried its clarifying masque. It comes in a nice green pot with 1.7 ounces for $24.95. The thick pasty face mask is green colored with their special ingredient, Floralux.
- Removes oil to reduce acne from the skin.
- It makes the skin feel clean.
- It is vegan and cruelty-free skincare which means it also falls in the category of clean beauty products.
- It does not smell so good.
- Extremely drying, especially for dry or sensitive skin.
- Contains Phenoxyethanol
BioClarity is a skincare brand that is known for its acne-reducing vegan skincare solutions. However, it also contains Phenoxyethanol as a preservative. Phenoxyethanol irritates the skin and causes skin blistering, it can also cause skin allergy. The Chlorophyllin-Copper Complex that is used in the composition of the mask acts as an antioxidant. This is the same Copper chlorophyllin which is used as a food colorant because of which it probably tints the skin green. The mask dries out the face which is a plus for oily skin prone to acne but not for dry skin.
When our skin dries, it tends to produce more sebum in order to compensate for the dryness which then leads to more breakouts. I have combination skin and it made my skin break out more. At first, I thought that it was that purge phase but my acne did not reduce even after a month and a half of using it. So I switched to another clay mask by Bee Elite Essentials.
The Ageless Bee Venom Face Mask is filled with rich ingredients like Bee Venom and Manuka Honey. It helped me reduce the inflammation on my skin and it was so relaxing. It removed the excess oil from my face but without overly drying it. Generally, we think that others see the difference in our faces because we are so used to seeing our faces every day that we might miss the minor changes. However, after about a week of using the face mask, I started noticing slight changes in my skin. For instance, the redness had reduced substantially and the acne was reduced to minor bumps. I’m switching. I just love the feeling and looking forward to reordering soon.
BioClarity hydrate is a light-weight moisturizer for daily use. It comes in a pretty blue and green colored tube and is available in 1 oz and 2 oz variants. The key ingredients it contains are Chlorophyllin-Copper Complex (Floralux), olives, licorice roots, shea butter, chamomile, and argan.
- It is a light-weight moisturizer that gets absorbed in the skin very quickly.
- Non-comedogenic which means that it doesn’t clog skin pores and cause acne.
- Vegan skincare.
- Feels sticky while applying.
- Because of fast absorption, I often need to reapply it several times a day to not leave my skin dry.
- It seems more suitable for oily skin than dry or sensitive skin.
The moisturizer or “skin smoothie” contains phenoxyethanol which might be the reason why it feels sticky while applying it to the face. The brand suggests this for normal to dry skin, however, because of the light-weight formula it gets absorbed quickly and leaves skin feeling dry and tight.
Dry skin is more prone to premature aging and skin allergies that can cause itching, irritation, and redness. Moreover, the preservative used in this can also be responsible for skin irritation, blistering, rashes, and burning sensation. I had to stop using the moisturizer after the first finished so fast because of constantly re-applying it. I began looking for a better moisturizer which can keep my skin hydrated for longer and that’s how I came across Bee Elite Essentials Ageless Bee Venom Face Cream.
First of all, it does not contain any harmful preservatives and the cream is so moisturizing yet light-weight that I don’t have to keep on re-applying it every two hours. The ingredients are also very rich, they include Bee Venom, UMF 24+ Manuka Honey, Hyaluronic Acid, Rosehip Seed Oil and many others. It is totally worth giving a try, I’m subscribing to the product.
Is BioClarity good for acne?
It depends on whether your skin can tolerate the ingredients, mainly the preservative - Phenoxyethanol. If not, then you might feel a slight burning sensation, skin blistering, redness, irritation, and rashes. These are the side effects of using Phenoxyethanol.
How long does BioClarity take to work?
According to the website you have to keep using it for 2 weeks to see substantial results, however, it depends on how your skin reacts to the product. If you have sensitive skin towards preservatives like phenoxyethanol, it may happen that the products may not work at all or make your skin condition worse.

Yes, some of its products like Clarifying masque and Hydrate are helpful for oily skin. However, its skin cleanser Cleanse leaves skin feeling more oily than clean.
