My First Impressions:
First time trying this product I wasn't too impressed; I think I expected more out of it because of all the hype for this product. When I first applied it to the back of my hand it's a cool gel like formula that blended very easy on my hand. It dries in to a matte finish just like it states. I did fell like it was still wet after applying it to my face after minutes of letting it set to my skin. I was a bit scared to apply foundation to quickly because it felt like my make up would slip and slide all over my face. 

This product states to instantly in 'one second' blur the pores. I didn't see any change after a second, or after a minute or five. My skin was really soft but my pores were still showing and I didn't see it blur at all. 

I have how ever seen other peoples reviews on this product and I saw it change in seconds on them so maybe it's a hit or miss for some people.
Check out Whatwouldlizzydo for her review; this product worked great for her. 
You can also check out NicoleGuerriero for her thoughts; she liked the product but it's not a must. 

Formula & Application:
It's a gel consistency and at first its like a paste and when you warm it up and apply it to your face it becomes a silicone like gel. It goes on very smooth on the face, it almost feels like a smooth Vaseline going on your face. I know that sounds weird but that's the best way I can describe it. 
I applied it with my fingers and I dabbed it softly into my skin so the product would sink in to my skin evenly. 
Now I was a bit scared that it would clog my pores because it feels pretty heavy on the skin and I'm glad to say it didn't do that, it didn't break me out at all. 
As far as after the application this product still seems wet on the face, so I waited a couple minutes before applying my make up. 

Does it blur pores?
I did a quick first impression on my Instagram after I used this product for the first time and I was not impressed from the beginning. I used this for two days and I have no intention on using it a third.
I did keep in mind this product never clammed to fill in pores or make them disappear; it's meant to blur the pores out to make them less noticeable.
For me I think this product made me more aware of my pores, I even joked about my pores being too big and maybe that's why this stuff didn't work for me.
Keep in mind this is on my skin, everyone's skin type is different so it doesn't mean it won't work well for you.


From the pictures above you can see this product did nothing to my pores; they're still there and very noticeable. I'm also wearing the Covergirl TruBlend foundation in these pictures I intend to do a review of the foundation first but since I used this baby skin product with it I want to give it a try without it before I share my thoughts on it. 

I will be trying to return this product I have the receipt, but I ripped up the packaging because I was so excited to get my hands on it. Will they still take it at Walgreen's?
I can live without this product, I'm glad I got a chance to try it out just for curiosity.
But I give it a 2 out of 5.
The texture is nice but I feel like using this product made my make up slide off throughout the day I ended up looking more tiered than I really was. I felt like 3 hours in to wearing my make up I wasn't wearing anything at all. When I wiped my make up off at the end of the day I hardly had anything to wash off. 

If your curious to try this out I say go for it it's very inexpensive and I mean the packaging is just so cute, you just want it to be in your make up section (lol).
If you have any questions about this product please feel free to ask.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
