Fight Monster Pore with Laneige Mini Pore RangeSaturday, June 20, 2015
Assalamualaikum and hello! Let me ask you one thing. Who in their right mind never feel a tinge of jealousy over the sparkling beauty of Korean actresses? None, right. I always want to have their clear skin. I am never a K-Pop fan but I appreciate their flawless beauty. So, when Laneige asked if I would love to grace their Flawless Beauty Launch, I definitely said yes and flew to Shangri-La Putrajaya to meet them ^_^
There were three key products that Laneige introduced to us that day in accordance to the Flawless Beauty theme, and there was also another two complimentary products to further enhance that flawless beauty aim :) The 3 key products are from Laneige Mini Pore range which are the Pore Control BB Cushion which has took the beauty world by a storm and made everyone scrambling for this babe, and another two latest product that will be in the market this July 2015, which are Laneige Mini Pore Blurring Tightener and Laneige Mini Pore Waterclay Mask. Another two products that were also introduced to us were Laneige Cushion Highlighter and Laneige Satin Loose Powder_EX.
We were told that this Laneige Mini Pore range was designed to fight off "monster pores". Monster pores are the biggest deterrents in achieving perfect skin with flawless makeup finish. Hence, Laneige is introducing to us their latest breakthrough in skincare and pore management with Laneige Mini Pore Blurring Tightener and Laneige Mini Pore Waterclay Mask. Laneige believes that this Mini Pore range will be able to help women to skip preparatory stages of makeup application and in no time will be able to help conceal enlarged pores, acne and blemishes.
Mini Pore Waterclay Mask, 70ml (RM100)
This watery gel-type clay mask works effectively in controlling excessive sebum, tightening pores and supplying moisture to dry pores. Formulated with Pore Minisizing formula exclusively by Laneige, it contains Mint Water that strengthens the skin's barrier by supplying moisture to skin in order to care for pore dryness that leads to monster pores. It also contains Pine Needle Extract that controls excessive sebum secretion and prevents pore enlargement. This Waterclay Mask consists of naturally extracted mud from the Shinan area in Korea, which is the only 1st grade uncontaminated area of mud flat and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Its properties of excellent sebum absorption is better than of Canadian Glacier Mud.
So yeah, I've tested this mask once (actually, today at home) and my first impression would be :
- this mask is so cooling on my skin.
- easy to spread as it is exactly like a watery gel, it doesn't drip. safe!
- it dries within 10 minutes and it dries hard. you can't laugh or smile.
- it brings out the impurities on my nose when I wiped the mask off. i proceeded with a nose pack and the result was marvellous XD
- it is advised to wipe the mask off using the sea sponge provided to remove the mask effectively, or else you won't realize that there is still a thin layer of gray mud left on your skin. wipe it off using the sponge until you didn't see any gray traces left.
- my skin feels smooth, moist and clean after using this Laneige Mini Pore Waterclay Mask
Mini Pore Blurring Tightener is a finisher that controls excess sebum with pine needle extract, and it also contains fresh mint water to moisturize the pores and at the same time helps to smooth pores that have become enlarged. Used as the last step in skincare regime, the Mini Pore Blurring Tightener promises to boost the effects of your prior skincare steps, control oil and sebum production and most importantly, it prevents pore enlargement from accelerating. With continuous use and proper skincare regime, it can help to lighten skin tone and tightens enlarged pores.
Flawless Makeup in 2.5 Seconds
Now we've arrived at the most interesting part of the post! During the event, we were told that Laneige can help us to achieve flawless makeup look in just 2.5 seconds! At first I found it hard to believe because the period is so short but true to what people say, seeing is believing :) The BB Cushion Pore Control (picture below) is created by Laneige to help women achieve a perfect, flawless, pore-free makeup finish as it is targeted to combat large pores with its Pore Control Care properties.
This BB Cushion Pore Control contains Pure Purifying Complex formulated with Melia, Keratinase and Salicylic Acid (people with acne problem, dont tell me you've never heard of salicylic acid) that works to remove poison and waste around the pores and at the same time it also helps to improve skin capability to defend itself from factors that cause acne and blemishes. Makeup base with acne fighting properties? Give me ten!
You should also know that this BB Cushion Pore Control contains Tight Silicon Elastometer that gently fill up the areas in between the pores. Also formulated with soft focus powder to diffuse reflection, these features made the BB Cushion Pore Control excellent for pore and skin bump coverage. Another factor that makes me fall in love with this BB Cushion Pore Control is because it comes with a strong UV protection with SPF50+PA+++ and it also has a sweat-proof formula. Another magical factor comes packed in this BB Cushion Pore Control is that it provides a cooling sensation that is able to reduce skin temperature by 3 degree Celcius. Sold? I am.
FYI we were required to make a video on these three products during the event as a challenge. My team (me, Miriam and Kelly) made a video starred by yours truly and Miriam, showing how we incorporated the use of Mini Pore Waterclay Mask and Mini Pore Blurring Tightener to get ready for Laneige Flawless Beauty party, and then on how the BB Cushion Pore Control helped me achieve flawless beauty in just 2.5 seconds ^_^ I don't know whether I shall put the video here or not, it was beautifully edited by Miriam despite the crazy time constraint we had but I feel segan lah to share XD We managed to get third place out of 6 group, hehe!
|disclaimer : i am not this fair. this happened with Laneige Pore Control BB Cushion, sunlight and filter. Thank you.|
I have been using this BB Cushion Pore Control for a week now and I honestly am impressed with its capability. As you can see in the above pictures, this BB Cushion Pore Control comes in 7 shades to cater to the need of Asian skin tone. This is the first time I ever found a large shade variant from a Korean cosmetic brand as they tend to only have a maximum of three shades only, which is a pain to me. So on my part, I say that this BB Cushion Pore Control does not oxidize and doesn't made me look like a plaster ghost, it is definitely sweat-proof as it doesn't melt or transfer, and best of all when I got home after a 7 hour spent walking outside, in the mall, eating, waiting for the train, watching a movie, my makeup still looks flawless and I was praised for how my skin looks at 12am. Who doesn't love that? Oh, I even cried and this BB Cushion Pore Control does not come off. I only needed to blot once and my skin doesn't even look oily anyway, I just blotted because I touched my skin and it feels a tiny bit oily.

All in all, I really had fun with my fellow ladies and Laneige during the event. As I have tried all three Mini Pore range products, I say it passed my expectations and I recommend this Mini Pore range products if you are looking for a mask, a skin finisher and a BB cushion that helps you look flawless without the crazy monster pore peeking through your makeup ^_^ I plan on making separate reviews for all three products, so stay tuned for more ya? Till then!
