I have visible pores and clogged pores across both my cheeks and nose. Up until now I have been using Benefits the Porefessional on top of my foundation, which is brilliant by the way. It does hide my pores, but the problem lies when I put blush onto the apples of the cheeks. Even with the Porefessional underneath, the blush yet again brings attention to the problem area I had just concealed.
Easy answer? Don't wear blush. Yes, this is an option, but I like blush, I think it's fun and in the last six months I have really got into it. So if I can wear it, I will try.
When flicking through this weeks issue of Look Magazine last night one of their beauty features caught my eye.
"Brightening At-Home Facial Peels - Good to glow in seconds."
The "Look Recommends" product was Soap and Glory's The Fab Pore Facial Peel. It had been rated 5 out of 5 stars. And the description and mini review really interested me.
Rub a grape-sized dollop into your face and massage in circles until the green beads have all dissolved. (Those with a high tendency for clogging should concentrate on the t-zone, chin or areas with large open pores.) Leave on for five minutes for a quick refresher, or fifteen for a real deep-cleaning do-it-yourself kind of facial. Rinse well, and follow with moisturizer. Repeat 2 - 3 times weekly.
What's in this peel that works:
Fomes Officinalis Extract: A mushroom extract that helps tighten pores. Salicylic Acid: Which loosens up the dead cells that contribute to pore clogging. Kaolin: That's 'cosmetic' for clay. It sops up extra oil on your skin and smooths your skins surface. Vitamins E & C: Antioxidants. Just because you're oily doesn't mean you're not aging.
Soap and Glory The Fab Pore Facial Peel is available at Boots for£7.15 for 50g of product.
I am excited to try this product out, I think I will give it its first go tonight before bed, and will be posting an update and review once I've used it for a while.
Has anybody used this product? Or if not can you recommend any other pore minimising products I can try?
