If something doesn't work on my skin or I get sent a sample that's wrong for my skintone I'll get someone else to test drive it for me. These posts will be posted as 'The Civilian Report', unless otherwise stated these are non-make-up artist friends of mine so their reviews are completely honest and without and background in the business.
These masks are going to be way too much for my sensitive skin (which is on the mend) so I gave them to a couple of people to try and review for me. Thanks to Fifi for this one.
Whilst my pores have never been my biggest beauty hang-up, there are definitely days where they feel very prominent so I was interested to try these masks. Now I love a bit of theatre with products, and this does not disappoint. Popping the plastic bubble and squishing the serum around the mask gave a real sense of that my pores were in for a treat. The mask itself isn’t flimsy, and sits nicely on the nose/cheeks. The serum has a light, cooling feeling and after 10 mins I gave the chin a quick swipe as well as smoothing over my nose and cheeks.
My pores definitely looked smaller without my skin feeling tighter, and I noticed that my tinted moisturiser didn’t settle in the pores the way it sometimes does (although this may say more about my moisturiser than the pore mask). I would definitely use this again when I thought my pores were becoming a little too apparent.
