clinique pore minimizer


clinique pore minimizer

I wasn't really sure whether to post this review or not because I have just found out that Clinique have re-formulated this product, and apparently the new one isn't as good as the old one. But after searching high and low on the internet I finally found somewhere you can buy the original, if you're interested, here. It is a lot more expensive than when I bought it but obviously because its the old version they aren't as readily available. The new version 'pore refining solutions instant perfector' comes in three colours, I haven't tried it but apparently it doesn't minimise your pores as much as the old one, there are mixed reviews on the new one just like any product but the majority of people said it isn't as good as it used to be. I hope they bring back the original soon because not many people are happy with the new formula. I am quite wary of using this now as I didn't know it wasn't around and more, I am going to have to ration it for special occasions :(! While I was searching for the original I also found a much cheaper version by the brand Almay, its only £4 and apparently does the same thing as Clinique! So its worth a try.

I bought this primer quite a while ago when I didn't really know a lot about make up and I thought it was something that would make my pores actually smaller, but it's not, it's a primer that makes them only appear smaller. I have recently started using it again because I don't have the money to splash out on my usual MAC prep and prime. You only need to put a small amount on your T zone and it stops your face becoming shiny through out the day. When ever I wear it, it makes my skin look matt which I prefer. It keeps your make up on all day and keeps it looking like you've just applied it. I'm so glad I dug this out of my make up draw, its such a good primer and it smooths my skin so applying foundation or concealer is much easier. It does hide my pores a lot which can be hard to do without a primer. I am so sad they have changed the formula because there was nothing wrong with this!

  1. That looks lovely, thank you for the links! This is very similar to the benefit poreffesional, if only the packaging was cuter! :) x

  2. Thanks for the review :) I love the new version, much prefer it to Benefit Porefessional but I might give that Almay one a try as I'm sure there's no need for such a pricetag! xoxo
