Beauty & Style
If you suffer from oily skin, chances are your pores are horrendous. Enlarged and clogged pores are more prominent in appearance since the dead skin cells can build up at the base of the pore with dirt and oil. Due to the excess dirt and oil build up, the pores can get clogged with a blackhead or whitehead. Of course with regular cleansing and exfoliating, you can reduce your pore size but how about using a Pore Minimiser from the Body Shop?
As a pore minimiser, this product offers a bit more for the skin. Infused with Community Fair Trade organic tea tree oil, it smooths, primes and mattifies, and leaves skin feeling fresh and pure.
- Minimizes the appearance of pores
- Mattifies for a shine-free finish
- Leaves skin feeling fresh and pure
- Ideal base for make-up
How to Use:
The product has a very silky texture that makes it easier to glide onto the skin and to help soften any skin. Take a water droplet size amount and apply it on your nose. Use smaller amounts since you do not want your skin to feel too heavy.
If your skin is combination with dry patches around your cheeks, you can simply use this on your t-zone around your nose and forehead before applying makeup. Dab a small amount of product where your skin gets the most oily to help reduce the size of your pores and mattify the skin.
Dry skin types should steer clear away from this product since the Pore Minimiser will accentuate dry patches on the skin. It will cling onto them and leave a tightening feeling.
Tea Tree Oil Benefits
With the main ingredient is Tea Tree Oil, the product helps to reduce the appearance of pores. As an astringent to help clean and unclog pores, Tea Tree Oil helps to regenerate skin cells and prevent blackheads from forming.
Because Tea Tree Oil is potent, the product has a strong herbal scent that can cause some to be sensitive to the smell.
Smooth Makeup Application
As a makeup base, it will prime your skin leaving it smooth and silky before foundation. However if you have very oily skin, it will not keep your skin matte and shine-free all day. If you are looking for a product that will only help reduce your large pores, you can pass up on this one! It will not fully cover up your pores but will help to smooth them out for makeup, as a primer this is a great one for oil/combination skin.
As mentioned in the claims, this is ideal for oil prone skin. Depending on how large or small your pores are, the amount of oil build up onto the skin will be slightly decreased but not 100%. So what can you expect from a pore minimiser? With the tea tree oil benefits, it will give you a fresh and radiant glow all over your skin. If you’re prone to oil, the excess dirt can dull down your skin’s natural radiant glow. This will help to decrease any dirt build up on your pores. Try this out only as a primer for the best results.
