Z-PORE Instant Pore Refiner by GoodSkin Labs

"A lightweight pore-perfector that immediately hides enlarged pores caused by skin aging."- GSL

They got me at 'pores'!
We all have pores -- but some have more enlarged pores than others.  I have lots, and mine are visible around the nose and inner cheek areas from years of stubborn adult pimples and acne in my late 20s.

You can imagine how excited I was when I received the latest product innovation from GoodSkin Labs -- the Z-PORE Instant Pore Refiner cream that came in this 20ml tube. I couldn't wait to try it!

After cleansing and moisturizing:
  1. I squeezed a small amount of Z-PORE -- light, powdery-smooth texture
  2. It looks like cream foundation in natural color
  3. Smoothed over specific areas with visible pores, in downward strokes: on sides of nose, parts of cheeks
  4. Blends well and "disappears" on my skin 
Pardon the unsightly (un-retouched) images :)

I immediately saw the effects and the product delivered as promised:

What Z-PORE does:
  • Reduces appearance of pores
  • Controls oils
  • Gives a flawless matte finish
  • Reduces shine
  • Water, sweat, humidity resistant
It INSTANTLY reduced appearance of my enlarged pores and revealed a velvety smooth, matte finish. I love how it feels on the skin with it's super fine texture. It's so light and sets quickly.  I did not feel the need to put powder over it anymore.  The only thing I did was pat face powder over the rest of my face to even out skin tone and I'm done.  What's amazing about it is that the areas with Z-PORE remained matte and dry the rest of the day.  I was tempted to use it on my whole face the next day but I restrained myself.  :)))

However, I noticed subtle skin flaking on the cheeks where I applied the cream.  I have combination skin but my cheeks tend to be on the dry side, so I guess it made it even drier with is "mattifying" formulation.  I do recommend Z-PORE to those with oily skin as it really does the trick -- shine-free face!  It's also great as a makeup base since it leaves skin smooth and even.

Z-PORE contains silicone polymers, optical diffusers and mica that creates a matte finish once applied. A special mix of conditioning silicone, vitamin E and lauryl lysine powder make it non-drying.  Use with or without makeup.

Please note that Z-PORE does not claim to make pores shrink and disappear, but simply helps reduce appearance for a more flawless-looking skin.

“A youthful complexion is often defined by smooth texture and clean, invisible pores. Because
 pores develop in size and visibility with aging, patients in my practice are always looking for products that help conceal them in order to create a polished and refined look that is smooth to the touch. What is great about Z-Pore is that it creates instant pore refinement with a beautiful silky finish for all day wear.” - Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank, GoodSkin Labs Global Consulting Dermatologist
Z-PORE is available at selected Watsons Personal Care Stores, Beauty by SM Department Stores and Marionnaud Mall of Asia.
