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.

Makes me feel like barbie haha
Sampled

As much as the media "puts down" people being airbrushed and looking like a Barbie doll...this product does just that without a camera. No joke, you just swipe it on and watch the pores disappear! And I have pretty large pores, so this is not coming from someone with micro-pore issues.

not long lasting

Compared to other brands this only lasts a few hours where other brands last all day, disappointed. I get a lot of shine in the t zone, so I always use these products clinique has one that has always worked the best for me.

Surprise - it works!
Sampled

Shockingly I actually thought this product was really good and highly effective and I am shocked as I am usually not happy at all with any benefit product. They normally seem to be just great packaging and gimmick with little return on efficacy. So color me SURPRISED! I liked this one way way better than the Dr. Brandt one.

I've tried this product before and enjoyed it. After getting again i realize how awesome it is. i have really big pores and this does a great job at minimizing them. It is definitely as described a "translucent balm to shrink" pores
