Biore (ビオレ () ), also stylized as Bioré, is a skincare brand owned by the Japanese company, Kao Corporation. The first product, "Biore Facial Foam," was sold in 1980. Kao has continued developing different kinds of makeup remover and face wash.[5] The brand has also expanded into other countries, including the United States.

Biore's initial collaboration with Boys Over Flowers began in January 2016. On their website, users could play a quiz. They would enter their name, pick their favorite of the F4, and then their mood. A short message from said F4 member will appear along with a recommended Biore product.[6][7] A second round of the collaboration started in the summer of 2016.[8] Yoko Kamio reworked old illustrations of Tsukushi Makino and the F4 for the campaign.[9] Biore promoted the collaboration with advertisements in the Tokyo subway system.[10][11]
