/ beauty / review / Soap and Glory / the fab pore


I have a slight crush on all Soap and Glory products. It's the combination of pink and their quirky product labels (not to mention I haven't found a product I don't like) that makes me want to go on a shopping spree. 

I've been using this product for a while now (this is in fact my second pot),so I thought I would put up my review. 

What I like most about The Fab Pore facial peel  is that it can be used in two ways - the first is just simply to massage it onto damp skin and leave for a few minutes for a quick refresher, or the second is to leave it on for 15 minutes for a deep-cleaning facial. 

The claims (as provided by Soap and Glory)
Intensive pore refining action
An exclusive PORESHRINK-R COMPLEX ideal for greasy, spot prone or problem skin
A strategic attack on a misbehaving T-zone
Contrains: Fomes Officinalis extract- a mushroom extract to tighten pores, Salicyclic acid - loosens dead skin cells to help reduce pore clogging, Kaolin - clay, soaks up extra oil on your skin and smooths the surface, Vitamins E & C - antioxidants, anti-aging

The reality
I generally use this mask three times a week, once for a deep cleanse and the others just for a refresher - it helps settle those 'oily days'. I can't really compare it to other masks, there may be better out there, but this one has just worked for me. The consistency is really creamy and it smells lovely, there are little green beads in it which dissolve as you rub the mask onto your face.

 As for pore shrinkage, the difference has only been slight - so not quite fulfilling that promise. It tingles when you put it on, though some of my friends say it burns - I guess it depends on the sensitivity of your skin so bear that in mind before buying. 

It retails for £8.00 and is available here.

Have you tried this product? Or would you recommend something else?
