Dr.Young's Pore Eraser Balm: Review

Monday, 29 February 2016

Previously, I felt that my pores were getting bigger. I ended up using too much bb cream to try and cover up my pores and I was getting sick of that. So I decided to get a pore cover balm instead, in hopes that it would help me with that problem. 

I previously tried out Dr.Young's bb cream and felt that it was pretty good, so I decided to get this balm from them too.

Price:
SGD$40.90

Where to buy:
Here's the Anti-Pore Pore Eraser Balm from Dr.Young:
This product is made in Korea, and contains about 15g of product. According to instructions, apply the product before makeup onto pores and blend it out. It says to put it on oily areas, but I didn't feel like slapping it all over my t-zone, so I decided to just put it on areas where I felt I had enlarged pores.
 
Its texture reminded me of the Benefit's PORE Professional.

Ingredients List
Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Vinyl Dimethicone/, Silica, Ceresin, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Polysilicone-11, Cyclohexasiloxane, Bis-PEG/PPG-14/14 Dimethicone, Glyceryl Linoleate, Glyceryl Linolenate, Gylceryl Arachidonate, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Hamamelis Virginana (Witch Hazel) Water, Camellia Oleifera Seed Oil, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Gentiana Lutea Root Extract, Amica Montana Flower Extract, Artemisia Absinthium Extract, Achillea Millefolium Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Panthenol, Titanium Dioxide, Propylparaben, CO77491, CI77499, Fragrance

That's alot of product for one small tub! And as you can see, main ingredients are silicone based, which according to them, 'help fill up pores and rough surfaces of the skin'.

 I only used this amount for my pores around my nose.


Verdict
After blending it out, it was not 'flawless', but I felt that my pores really 'shrunk' in size! I was happy with the way it looked and I continued with my makeup routine. I feel that this amount might look little, but it could last me a very long time!

Importantly, it had helped control a little of the oil around my nose area, so I did like this product.

Beauty note: 
- My skin is combination skin (oily)
