Minimise pores with Fancl's pore treatment kit
by Cynthia Loh

Open and enlarged pores are a common problem with young skins. What's more, the production of excess sebum, usually exacerbated by humid weather, spicy and oily food and hormones in general can cause pores to be clogged.

We like Fancl's pore treatment kit, which comes with a bevy of products designed to keep skin clog-free and healthy and minimise the appearance of enlarged pores.

Designed as a skincare and make-up kit, it consists of the Sebum Care Pack, which is a rinse-off mask that clarifies skin by removing impurities and blackheads. This is followed by the Pore Essence, which moisturises and refines pores from the skin's surface by absorbing excess sebum.

The final step is the 2-in-1 makeup and beauty product Pore Cover Base (in round container above). Apply it over skin where pores are normally visible, and it immediately provides a smoother looking finish. A little of the light mousse texture goes a long way, so there's no need to be heavy handed in application. Just dab onto skin until pores are smoothed over.

If you're not after a heavily made-up look, just complete your make-up with a light dusting of loose powder and you're ready to face the world.

The best bit was that the finish stayed on and looked smooth throughout the day. The matte feeling also lasted from morning until late afternoon, and what's more, skin did not break out after a few days of continuous application, as pores were not clogged.

This gets a thumbs-up from us.

The FANCL Pore Treatment Kit retails at S$51 at all FANCL outlets.
