FORA x Biore: Celebrating 20 Years Of Pore Strips

New day, new beauty product. As beauty lovers, it seems like we’re always being introduced to the latest and greatest innovations in makeup and skincare–but few products are in for the long haul. But that’s not the case with Bioré! This year, the skincare brand is celebrating the 20th anniversary (that’s right, 20 years!) of their iconic pore strips.

To commemorate the incredible milestone, Bioré enlisted the help of Katie Kavanagh, a recent Humber College grad and Toronto-based graphic designer to create new, limited edition packaging for their Deep Cleansing Pore Strip range. We got the chance to chat with Katie on set at our shoot with Bioré about her inspirations, how she came up with the design, and her favourite pore strip memories. Check out our interview with her—and enter to win your own Bioré prize pack—under the cut!

Wade, the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision that affirmed a woman’s legal right to an abortion, sexist violence is abound.
