The struggle to hide my very visible pores is real. I have been looking for products to help minimize the appearance of pores. Benefit’s porefessional works but that’s just temporary and I want to incorporate something on my skincare regimen to help permanently minimize the appearance of my pores.
I stumbled upon this local and infused with natural ingredients product that allegedly gives brighter complexion with minimized pores and I had to try it for myself.

Grabbed from beauty mnl
I bought mine from beauty mnl for 280 pesos (5 USD) for a 30 ml bottle.
Before I started using this, I had visibly large pores and textured skin. I am in between combination to dry skin. There would be days when I could have an oily t-zone and dry cheeks and chin and other days I would just have dry skin all over my face.
This comes in an air-tight pump bottle with cover and was sealed when it was delivered to me.
Application and feel:
I use my pointer and middle finger to apply the product to my skin. This is a gel-like translucent product. This is easy to apply and not sticky to the skin. This is also lightweight although this could take 30-50 seconds before you feel that it is absorbed by your skin.
I was expecting it to smell like tomato but it actually smells like candy or cotton candy. To be honest, I am disappointed because having a different scent would mean that it has additional ingredient that we could do without for it to be more natural.
This actually makes my skin feel slightly more hydrated and it does feel smoother and less textured after almost a month of use. There is minimal changes with the appearance of pores although it did do something. Below is a photo of my current skin after a month’s use.
I would repurchase and continue using this product. Even if the appearance of pores is only minimally decreased, it made my skin soft and less textured. It’s also affordable and is worth it for what it does.
