Review: Etude House Goodbye Pore Ever Pore Primer Stick

Hello Sunday!!!

How's it goin' ladies?  Well, I am hoping for the rainy days to embrace Ilocos however the mugginess makes me think I am living in the desert.  The climate here has always been crazy like me lol.  Life is supposed to be fun and exciting but sometimes disappointments spoil our day from the unmet expectations (just sayin' though we all encounter bad days).  So before I call it a night and drown this melancholy to sleep lemme drop a shorty review of Frozen Blossom's sweetheart  this month ofJune.
Product Description
The Etude House Goodbye Pore Ever is a stick-type pore primer formulated to control the secretion of sebum while improving and extending make up coverage.

Volume: 4.5g (0.15oz.)
Price: PhP395.00
Availability: all Etude House Branches and counters (I got mine from Korean Cosmetics for Less / Kkochipida)
How to use: (apply after usual skincare routine)
1. Twist to dispense stick-type balm.
2. Apply to areas with visible pores and areas that oils up the most(t-zone usually)
3. Apply liquid foundie, bb cream or cc cream.

For ingredients, please refer to picture of box below.
Packaging wise - this comes in a super handy stick-twist-it-type like a lippy which can be easily carried around.  It is made of sturdy plastic with cover that locks well which protects the balm from getting messed up.
The primer is made of balm like almost silicone-y substance that glides well unto skin prepping it ready for a smooth make up application.
As seen on pictures below, the stick may look peachy but once applied on skin, it does not have a bit of tint.  It's colorless so it won't alter the color of the foundation or it won't make it look overly done.  
From my experience, what it does is that it tries to cover the large pores so it won't be that obvious.  For ladies with almost semi-deep scars from acne, this primer fills in those craters making it look flat so when you apply the foundie the skin will look flawless too.
Since, this balm fills in the spaces of the skin like pores and scars,  I think getting rid of it thoroughly by the end of the day is necessary to avoid clogging the skin which may lid to acne.

As for the longevity,  this primer helps the skin oil up lesser than the usual.  My skin is innately super oily and from what I observe it helps my bb cream or cc cream stay longer. I am satisfied though, a few touch ups can easily solve the grease dilemma.
Frozen Blossoms thoughts:
I have been using this everyday on my t-zone area and I'm most glad how it kept that area looking less greasy and smooth hehehe.  This one will be best for ladies with oily skin and whose pores are slightly visible.

So that's it for today, I hope to drop here more frequently...anneong!!!

  2. Well, sounds good to try^^
    I have big pores near my nse area. I avoid using primer because most primers tend to give me pimples.
    Can u tell me, Is it save for acne prone?

  3. Same question as Queen D, is it safe for acne prone skin? My skin is so OA to these things. :( I've tried this product over the counter once and it was ok but I don't know after the long run.
