Birchbox Breakdown

Of all the beauty minefields out there, visible pores are one of the trickiest to dodge. Foundation alone doesn’t do the trick, which is why we turn to this translucent balm to shrink our pores. We can use it as a primer in the mornings or as a touch-up treatment throughout the day. Perfect t-zone, here we come.

How it Works

The silky, oil-free formula diffuses pores and fine lines for an “airbrushed” finish. It goes on sheer, leaving skin even and smooth. Don’t we all love instant gratification?

How to Use

As a primer, apply a fine layer on clean or moisturized skin, starting from the center of your face and working outwards. Pat to blend. Feel free to use for midday touch-ups too — just dab a pea-size amount over your makeup and blend.

I have been using this product for a while. Love the way it feels going on, so soft and smooth. Helps smooth skin surface and covers minor imperfections.

Great Pore Minimizer

I really like this pore Minimizer- it works great to help reduce the appearance of pore size, it's great under foundation or powder. I like the silky smooth texture!

Really good

This product does wonders at covering up large pores. If I don't put this on before my foundation and concealer my pores look huge. It glides on smoothly and minimizes the look of larger pores. I love it

Great

This product was amazing. It does exactly what it says- diminish pore size. It has a less greasy feel than other pore erasers. It worked wonders on my skin for the first week I used it. I am pleased to continue using it.

Amazing!

I received this as a sample. After using it for the first time, I was in love. It goes on smooth and makes my pores and fine lines almost unnoticeable. I also appreciate how it doesn't coverup my freckles like so many products now a days do. Great Product.

Love it!

I have very sensitive skin and was pessimistic about trying this or anything that has to do with my face because I have Rosecea. Much to my surprise this product did not cause me to break out or even turn red! I didn't think I could use it as a 'touch-up treatment' over my makeup but I did and once again was surprised! I was using it as a primer but needed something in the late afternoon before meeting up with friends. Birchbox has wowed me once again. :)

pore more

I usually love everything from this brand but I must say this one didn't live up to the hype. I didn't notice any minimizing of my pores. On the plus side, the texture is so nice and creamy I liked putting it on.

This is my go to primer everyday. Makes my skin feel great and smooth . Makeup looks even better since my pores appear to be smaller. This is a must even when I don't wear foundation.

Leaves skin looking like silk!

I have clear skin, but big fat pores. With a little of this rubbed into my t-zone and a touch of foundation, I look gorgeously photoshopped :) It's light and doesn't cake up at all, yet it makes my pores disappear!

Love this stuff

this stuff actually works. One of the few products out there that does what it says. It helps hide my pores and fine lines and my makeup goes on so smooth and stays put. This is so worth the money!
