Clinique Instant Perfector

Having oily/combination skin (yay!) I've tried many a product similar to this one, so trust me it takes a lot too impress. I often find pore perfecters to feel chalky in texture, or on the other end of the spectrum too greasy, many are silicone based so sit uncomfortably on my skin. So this tiny tube seriously had a lot of hard work to woe me has it succeeded?

Yes, yes and more yes! I previously reviewed the Smashbox anti shine over here which is still a firm favourite in my stash for de-greasing/mattifying. But Clinique, truly has won the top spot. This just blurs pores, it's incredible. I've never applied a product like this that has made such a visible difference to pores. This isn't at all oily, greasy or slippery in texture. Make up sits comfortably on top, and I've actually found using this prior to foundation makes it more long wearing. This also works over make up, eliminating shine and freshening up make up-great for touch ups. This can also be worn on it's own for those good skin days (not something I've being having recently sadly.) 

This is available in three shades, 'Invisible bright' which is aimed at paler skin tones,  'Invisible light' which is aimed at tan/olive skinned girls and 'Invisible deep' which is aimed at darker warmer skin tones (the shade I use.) I wouldn't worry too much about shade as this is totally translucent on the skin, and leaves no colour. 

Priced at £20 this does seem rather expensive (look at that teeny tiny tube) but a tiny bit truly goes a long way and with these types of products I actually find them to last a long time especially if your using them on your tzone like me.

Have you tried Clinique pore perfecter? What are your favourite pore perfecters?

I'm currently using one from Napoleon Perdis and I love it. I will give this a go once I've use up my current one. I have oily/combination skin too, so hopefully I will like it as much as you do. Thanks for sharing :)

Hi Jen, thanks for stopping by/comment, I have too admit I'm not a fan usually of anything from the Clinique make up range but this just does such an a-mazing job of improving the look and feel of my skin before and after foundation! I was very impressed as normally these types of products don't really work x
