Birchbox Breakdown

When our pores start to conjure images of the moon landing, we know it’s time to take action. Fortunately, this pore refiner can be applied on an as-needed basis. A favorite of photo-ready celebs, the sheer, lightweight formula instantly absorbs oil while minimizing the appearance of enlarged pores. The result is a smooth, shine-free finish——whether you’ve applied it once, or a hundred times.
Results from dr. brandt®'s clinical trials, after one application:
• 60% reported reduction in the appearance of pores
• 80% reported less shine

Product is amazing, but Price?

This product is amazing. Its a great primer that mattifies and seems to "fill in" pores. It also has this great quality where it blurs and perfects, so it can be worn alone... BUT... Birch box has the .5oz price listed as $15 and the 1oz price as $45?! Why bother getting the full sized when you can get 1.5 ounces in the smaller versions for the same price???

Good primer!

This is a good primer. Reminds me of Benefit's pore one. Nothing revolutionary but feels nice on the skin. I don't know if it is really pore reducing, but I like the texture and feel of it

Perfect product, but too expensive!

This is my favorite product in birchbox!! It's amazing BUT $45 for such a small amount?! If you have the money to spend I suggest you get this product but if you're a college student like me.. Maybe keep looking. So sad because I'm obsessed with this!!

Saw no differencw

No difference in the way my pores looked but I did only use the sample 3 days both day and night-could take much longer. The smell was a little hard to get past but I have to say, it did make my skin very soft which was a plus!

Didn't work

I have very oily skin, so I decided to give this a try. It definitely didn't keep the oil at bay, and I really didn't see a difference in my pores.

Great Primer

This primer was great in texture and quality. However, considering Monistat Chaffing Gel is the same thing practically and full fills the same purpose; I'm styling with that.

So airy!

This product is so light and airy! I have fairly large pores and this refiner fills them in so well!

Nice

Not the best smelling, but seems to work pretty well. It's silky and helps fill pores and prevent oil. It's a good primer, too--works pretty well, actually. I haven't been using it long enough to see a lasting reduction in pores, but I can see a superficial improvement in how noticeable they are under make-up.
