Are you having pore-blems (pun intended) like me? I battle with open and enlarged pores all the time, simply because the weather is unforgiving and I wasn’t born with good skin.
Lucky for me, I get to tackle the problem of enlarged pores with LANEIGE’s newest skincare launches – Mini Pore Waterclay Mask and Mini Pore Blurring Tightener.
For people who has enlarged pores, it is very important to clear clogged pores and restore the elasticity to the skin. Powered by a Pore Minisizing™ Technology, the Mini Pore Blurring Tightener combines the best properties of makeup and skincare.
The product aims to hydrate the skin and prevent further enlargement of pores by forming a protective layer over the skin to seal in the goodness of the previous steps of skincare. That’s right, you’re supposed to apply this only at the very last step of your skincare regime.
Used before sunscreen, this keeps sebum secretion under control while covering up and blurring pores with its Blurring Layering Technology. It contains ball-shaped powder which illuminates the areas with pore problems and plate-shaped powder that reflects light for the illusion of smoother complexion.
I wouldn’t say I love this product because my pores are pretty large and it doesn’t completely blur my complexion to make it flawless. If you are one who smaller pore size, it might work better on you with visible results.
On the other hand, I LOVE THIS MASK, the Mini Pore Waterclay Mask! When I received it, I thought it was going to be an ordinary clay mask until I felt the texture of it! As its name suggests, it is a clay mask containing Shinan mud clay concocted into a moisture gel cream base, which makes it easily spreadable and not too heavy on the skin. It helps remove excessive sebum and tightens pores while providing adequate hydration to the skin!
Powered by the same Pore Minisizing™ Technology found in the tightener, the mask is made with mint water to help strengthen the skin’s barrier functions while soothing dehydrated skin. Pine Needle extract is carefully sourced and incorporated to control excessive sebum production, thereby preventing further enlargement of pores.
Interestingly, as the watery gel-clay mask dries on your skin, you’ll feel your skin becoming tighter and the enlarged clogged pores will become visible. The tightening sensation will wear off after you have washed the mask away and you’ll be able to reveal clear skin with unclogged pores! For best results, finish off with the blurring tightener.
Just a picture of me enjoying my mask time 😉
My overall verdict? GET THE WATERCLAY MASK! I’m already a huge fan of its reformulated sleeping mask and I cannot be happier that this particular one has joined my family of masks! The face definitely needs some pampering and detoxifying once a week!~
The LANEIGE Mini Pore Waterclay Mask retails for S$38 and the Mini Pore Blurring Tightener retails for S$52. Both available from 2 July 2015 at all LANEIGE counters and boutiques.
Create yourself and be gorgeous! ♡
