I don't know if any of you have used the "smudger" tool on photos to eliminate pores but this does essentially that. The consistency seemed weird at first and I have to admit, breaking out was an enormous concern of mine seeing as the product pretty much fills your pores with wax. (sounds gross I know, but bear with me) I have been using it for a while and I'm happy to say: not one blemish. This product seemed a bit pricey for how small the tube was. It's weighing in at a whopping 0.75 oz which is slightly bigger than a lip gloss from Bath and Body Works and it's ringing in around $30. I know what you are thinking, what the heck? But I promise you it does something that NO other product ever has, it completely erases every pore on my face, The best part is that you only have to use a tiny amount for your entire face. I give it an enormous thumbs up.
Tips for use:
The product is meant to be used as a pre-makeup product but on the back it has directions if you ever wanted to use it after applying makeup (I wouldn't recommend doing this). I start by washing and moisturizing my face. (I didn't used to do this before every makeup application but it makes an enormous difference!) After my face is prepped I apply a tiny amount (less than pea sized) of the pore balm to my CLEAN fingertip. I use my finger to rub it on. Apply to porous areas of the face until you've reached your satisfied results. Apply makeup as usual.
BONUS: This product not only works on my pores but it also evens out my wrinkled areas leaving me feeling younger and more beautiful.
