When we think of young, beautiful skin we think of the smooth, poreless skin of children. I look at my kids faces and think, wow, my skin used to look that plump, smooth, and youthful and I didn’t even know what a blessing it was. When we put our foundation on in the morning we are not doing so only in the hopes of covering imperfection but trying to mimic this smoothness. In order to achieve this refined, smooth look we need to start before our makeup. Not only in terms of skincare but also prepping the skin with a product like the newest addition to the L’Oreal Youth Code lineup, Pore Vanisher. The L’Oreal You Code Texture Perfector Pore Vanisher ($29.99 CAD) works on the surface to blur the look of pores thanks to the Aero-Gel’s soft-focus effect. It has long term benefits to reduce pore size over time with LHA exfoliants and 3% Perline-P to strengthen and maintain the shape of pore walls.
Pore blurring primers are really, really popular right now. It seems almost every brand from drugstore to high end is coming out with their own version. What I really like about the L’Oreal YouthCode Pore Vanisher is that it feels much lighter than a lot of the other pore filling primers I’ve tried, and I don’t experience any pilling of the product when I apply foundation afterwards as I find tends to happen on me with some other formulations. If you are looking for a more targeted result with a more concentrated, thicker product then you can add the L’Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur to your routine as well where needed.
Here you can see the before and after effects on a section of my hand that has highly visible pores at the moment.
And here you can see the overall refined, mattified, and almost airbrushed effect of a full face application.
I don’t know about you but I find the results pretty dramatic. You can really see the improvement around my eyes, nose, cheeks, between my eyes, chin, well I guess everywhere! The product has a very slight tint to it but not enough to actually impart any colour on the skin or offer coverage. Once you apply your foundation on top to even out your skin tone and hide imperfections than you really achieve an almost flawless result.
