Life Savers For Anyone With Large Pores!!
Life Savers For Anyone With Large Pores!!
I'm very new to this whole skincare thing, so I still have a lot to learn. HOWEVER, these two products have changed my life!! I've had huge pores for as long as I can remember. For the longest time, I thought there was something wrong with the foundations I use as they sunk into my pores upon application. I've tried a few different brands of foundation and primers, every time being disappointed with how it looked on my skin. Then I found this app. I've only been using these products for a few weeks, but OMG what a difference!! Not only am I noticing a difference in the size of my pores already, but this primer practically eliminates them! I have never been able to apply foundation smoothly until I found this product. HOWEVER! I have also fallen inlove with The Ordinary's Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%! Since using this with other general skincare products I've been using regularly for years, my skin is clearing up to the point that I don't feel the need to wear any foundation at all! I can't wait to order some under eye creams and stuff for my dark spots. They're already in my basket at Sephora! Thank you to this amazing community. I have learned so much over the past few weeks from all of you, and I love that I can get REAL skin care recommendations. Keep shining on, gfs!!!!

New to skincare and looking for suggestions
Hi all. I'm relatively new to this whole properly taking care of my skin thing. I have combination skin, uneven skin tone, large pores and redness/discolouration. I've recently incorporated these products: Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Gel-Creami think i'm going to switch this out to the regular skin, as i'm finding it really makes my face oily. I do, however, need the moisturizer mostly around/on my nose. Or for when my pimples dry out. C&C by Clean & Clear - Persa-Gel 10, Maximum Strengthuse this mostly as a spot treatment. It dries my skin out a little bit, but i find it really helps flatten my pimples pretty quickly. I've only been using this product for a few days. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%literally just started using this today. As you can tell, i have MASSIVE pores. I have for as long as i can remember. Lately, it's really bothering me that my makeup sinks into my pores. I got a new pore primer today though and, so far, I'm impressed! Neutrogena - Pore Refining Cleanseronly been using this one for a few days. So far i'm pretty happy with it! Feels great on my skin and the scrub has been helping remove dry skin. I have also started using a salicylic acid acne treatment, for Clean & Clear. It's supposed to help remove blackheads. I have always been very nervous to use toners as I had bad luck with the Pro Activ system as a teen. This dries my skin out a bit, but i do find it helps reduce the oiliness throughout the day, especially at work when I have a full face of makeup on. I'm trying to give my skin as much of a break as possible when I'm not at work. I wake up really oily no matter what, but I'm wondering if this is just a regular thing for people? I hate it lmao I'm extremely self concious about my skin. I hate it and I have since i first got acne at age 10. It was so bad, I'm pretty sure my pores are also so big because they're probably partially acne scars. Any suggestions would be great!! I find my skin is a little sensitive, but i'm quickly getting used to the burning of the toner lol Thanks in advance :)

I had really high hopes for kr
I had really high hopes for kravebeauty’s Great Barrier Relief the very second it was revealed. If liahyoo’s name is attached to something, you’re going to want to try it. 〰️ If you weren’t aware, GBR is a serum that helps to gently restore your skin’s precious barrier. A poor functioning skin barrier is the culprit behind so many skin issues including dehydration, dryness, rosacea, etc. This product was created to keep your barrier healthy! 〰️ The magical ingredient in this product is tamanu oil. Tamanu oil possesses powerful skin healing properties and was traditionally used to treat wounds and other skin ailments. It also said to help to eliminate hyperpigmentation over time. 〰️ GBR also contains: safflower oil, rosehip seed oil, ceramides, cholesterol, and niacinamide. Together, these ingredients combine to create a beautifully nourishing skin cocktail. It truly does what it sets out to do, which is to protect and heal irritated skin. 〰️ This serum is everything I wanted it to be. The texture is soft and velvety. It is so gentle, yet extremely effective. My texture and tone has noticeably improved over the past several weeks. I adore the scent - it smells really fresh without being overpowering or offensive. I reach for it morning and night. In fact, I’m already about halfway through the bottle. It is well worth $28 and I would gladly repurchase it again. The best part? Every purchase of GBR helps protect the Great Barrier Reef!
