If you are a big fan of Korean beauty scene you would at least have heard of Amore Pacific at least once. It's the largest cosmetic company in South Korea (as far as I know) and it houses some of the biggest Korea cosmetic brands we all familiar with and one of them is Laneige. Even though I knew about Laneige for quite some time already, my first experience with this brand came a bit later compared to some other Korean brands. It's been only about two or three years since I first tried out this brand myself. Their current spokesperson is Song Hye Kyo which is one of my favourite Korean actress ever (hello Full House!) and she has been their representative ever since 2008.

A bit of fun fact, the brand name Laneige came from a French word La Neige which translates to snow. I guess that explains the clean and elegant design of most Laneige products. Not that I'm complaining; I love the sleek and simple approach on the packaging. I also like their revolutionary way in creating new products; for example the Laneige Two Toned Lip Bar which I've been loving these days. I hope I will have the time to do a review on that one too one of these days but for this post I'm going to focus on their latest oh-so-amazing Mini Pore Range.

In Malaysia's hot and humid weather, it's really easy to have a big pore problem. The problem usually comes in package so black heads and white heads are definitely a common issues too. I used to get hooked on pore strips but I stopped using them for a few years already since I've read that there are a lot of downsides from using them. Now the only way to combat black heads is through proper exfoliation and masking. But bear in mind that even if you managed to thoroughly combat your blackhead problem, the pores issue won't go away if they are not getting proper care. Your opened pores won't shrink naturally and will get larger over time instead and can end up turning into monster pores.

Monster pores are 150% larger than normal pores on average and are particularly obtrusive. This is a big issue if you want to achieve a perfect and flawless makeup finish. With Laneige's all new Mini Pore Range and their BB Cushion Pore Control, the dream of having a perfect and flawless skin might not be too far fetched anymore.

What are the three steps to combat humongous pores and achieve flawless makeup?


Step 1: Laneige Mini Pore Waterclay Mask

Comes in a 70ml bottle, this product is a watery gel-type clay that helps to effectively control access sebum, tightens pores and supplies moisture to dry pores. It is formulated with Laneige's Pore Minisizing formula that contains:

Mint Water: Strengthen skin's barrier by supplying moisture to the skin and provides care for pore dryness.
Pine Needle Extract: Prevents enlargement of pores by controlling excessive sebum creation.

Love the packaging especially the tube finishing and colour

One of the unique feature of this mask is the clay formulated for this product is naturally extracted from a mud flat area in Shinan, South Korea. It is the only 1st grade uncontaminated area of mud flat and also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The clay has excellent sebum absorption with its fine particles and large surface area from its holes.

My verdict? 
I love love love how non drying this product is! It is not time consuming at all and in fact I really love that it only needs to stay on the face for ten minutes (they really dries off fast). The hard white sea sponge (that turns soft once in contact with water) that comes with it help to remove the applied product easily. I can feel the tightening (like reallyyyy tightening) on my face as I apply and when it dries off I can see the area with large pores even more easier.

I think this is now in my top three of best face mask ever (probably the best actually)! Even minutes after washing off the product from my face, the tightening sensation still linger on for quite awhile. Definitely will repurchase once I ran out :)

Step 2: Laneige Mini Pore Blurring Tightener

This product is an embossed skincare that helps to control oil shine and to tighten pores. It also help to care for enlarged and dry pores; the best part is that it also works to blur the pore lines which is definitely a plus to achieve flawless makeup look. Just like the mask, it is also formulated with Laneige trademark Pore Minisizing formulation.

It is stated that in clinical test this product had shown an 86% decrease in monster pores size while skin tone and makeup application show and improvement of 87%. I really love how it smell (mild and refreshing) and that it is non sticky to the face. The absorption time is relatively fast and the pump packaging makes it easy to apply and hygienic.

Step 3: Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control

Out of all BB Cushion I have tried, this is probably one of my top favourite. This BB Cushion is targeted to help with pore control so it contains Pore Purifying Complex that is formulated with Melia, Keratinase and Salicylic Acid. The formulation works to remove poison and waste from excessive sebum and external pollutants around the pores while at the same time improves skin capability to defend the skin, preventing it from forming sebum oxidation and inflammation that often cause acne and blemishes.
