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.

Great primer
Sampled

This product goes on very smoothly and fills in pores better than other primers I've used (smash box, bare minerals, etc.), although I still used the pressing sponge technique for problem areas. I was actually more impressed by the ability to hold makeup in place all day, particularly on under eye area, without drying/patchiness or melting/drifting. Only drawback for me was the smell is a bit strong, and although I appreciated this quality due to smoothness and staying power, I could see others disliking the silicone-feel.

Comes as advertised
Sampled

This product really did not stand out to me considering I could not see immediate results. I like the texture and the fact that it is as advertised and did it's job. However nothing about this really stood out to me and made me think I need this in my product army.

There is nothing else like this product out there, i love it and the feel of it is just awesome, it feels so light and airy like there is nothing on your skin or clogging your pores! I did have this already and will continue to use it!

Nice and Smooth
Sampled

I use it as a primer, and it does a great job smoothing over my skin and covering up the pores. It also leaves my skin with a bit of a matte look which I really like.

Constant Acne Problems
Sampled

First off, the tube is very small and at first I was upset. But, a little goes a long way. It's really light-weight so it doesn't feel like I'm putting thick gunk on my zits. It helped hide my zits.
