If you have big pores like I do, then you will love this primer! it has a thick, creamy consistency and a light cream color to it. I find that it doesn't keep me matte all day but it does the job of making my pores less visible for the majority of the day. the find that it works best when you kind of push it/pat it into your skin where you have the most problems with pores. it won't work very well if you just apply it onto your face like a moisturizer, you must really work it into your pores to fill them. I love this primer, it fills my pores and helps my makeup last. I also like to buy the trial size over the full size. a little goes a long way with this product, but not only that. the travel size is 0.5 FL oz for $16 or you can get a full 1 oz for $39. If you do that math, the travel size is a better deal. you can get two travel sizes to equal a full size and spend $32 instead of $39!

Be prepared to be shocked at how your face looks once you apply the mask! It's hard not to laugh when you do this mask with friends. But it's really worth it and one of my favorite masks if you are concerned about your pores. Sometimes I do wish that the mask was a little more on the hard side because it can be flimsy upon removal. The point of this is to pull the gunk out of your face but also be able to reach the crevices that might not be reached if you had say a paper mask. I love this product because the peeling of it is just so satisfying to see all of that come off your face. I do highly recommend putting a thick layer or it won't be strong enough to peel off and then you'll have to rub your face with friction to get the mask off, and that's not pleasant at all.

I use to use Neutrogena Deep Clean Long-Last Shine Control cleanser/mask which did wonders for my acne prone, oily skin. Now after trying this beauty, I think Neutrogena has been replaced. Using this as a cleanser makes my face feel so refreshing and cleaner. My pores don't feel clogged and my face has a matte finish. The mask is what makes this better than Neutrogena. When using this product as a mask, you apply it on your face dry and leave it on for a few minutes. As the mask is drying on your face, you instantly feel everything is being pulled out of your face. This is one of philosophy's greatest products!

My favorite pore-filling product ever! I've never been a huge fan of silicone based primers but this one changed my life. I've always struggled with larger pores because of my super oily, acne-prone skin, so putting foundation on top of my skin makes my pores stand out so much more. This stick is so amazing and easy to use. I love that it's in a stick form so you don't have to get your hands dirty with sticky primer. This goes on smoothly and instantly erases the appearance of any sized pores on the face. It also helps with fine lines and wrinkles or any type of texture. It makes foundation go on so much smoothr, last longer, & also controls oil. Not sure how this would do on drier skin but I love it for normal to oily skin. This is a must have for me now. Totally changed my life and makeup routine! Thank you Estee Edit!

It's a pricey item, but very well worth every penny, especially when department stores have gift with purchase deals makes it even more worth it! I usually use this at night when I feel like I used a lot of products that opened up my pores, and in the morning before moisturizer since it makes my makeup last even longer when paired with my primer. It leaves my skin soooo smooth, and makes my bigger pores noticeably smaller. I also am not sure if it's from using this or not but the finer lines on my nose has diminished and almost disappeared now too! Overall well worth the money and splurge. :D
