FACE it OIL CUT Pore Balm from The Face Shop was one of the products that I had picked from my first trip to Sephora. The Face Shop is a Korean makeup and skincare brand and the visually appealing lineup at Sephora got me interested and I ended up buying this product.
The FACE it Oil Cut Pore Balm comes in a shiny metallic blue round screw top tub with a plastic separator that also holds a sponge provided with the primer for application. Although, I hate dipping my fingers into the tub every time I have to use the product, I still would have to say that I am in love with the shiny packaging. The sponge applicator is not of much use in my opinion because it leads to product wastage, plus I fell it will be unhygienic to use the same sponge applicator over and over again with remnants of product from the last use. I use clean sanitized fingers to take out the product.
The Face it Oil Cut Pore Balm is nothing but an oil controlling primer in a solid balm form. The texture is extremely smooth and soft and this spreads easily on the skin , providing a smoother base for the makeup to glide on. I have noticed that my pores appear visibly reduced when I wear this primer, but it doesn't hide them completely. The pore balm keeps oiliness at bay a little longer than a regular foundation primer and can be a boon for those struggling with oily skin issues. You would still need a touch up, but say an hour or so later than when you usually do it.
I usually apply this pore balm only on targeted areas and not as an all over face primer and it works better for me that way. The Pore Balm has a nice fresh tangy scent to it which I like.
Overall, The FACE it OIL CUT Pore Balm is a nice oil controlling primer that also minimizes/covers up the appearance of large pores on your face. It instantly smoothens out the skin and makes it easier for makeup products to be applied. I like the Pore Balm, but use it only on targeted areas. I really like this product because it exactly delivers what it claims to and you can get it without breaking the bank.
