Pore minimizer. And yes! i found one that actually works :)

Okay, so I was on a recent shopping trip to Mac and discovered this facinating little black tube. It claimed it could visibly reduce the look of my pores by 33% and shrink them by 2/3 with regular use. Well! Ha! sure you can... you and every other little black tube on the market. But then the little voice in my head chirped up said "Lisa, pffff... if they wrote it on the packaging, then it MUST be true. Buy it... It will make you look 13 again". So there I was... 10 minutes later leaving Mac with my "little life changing purchase" ( thats what the little voice called it, not me:) ) Anyways, home I went, with every intention of proving the little voice wrong. I washed my face, dabbed a small dot of the product on my nose, cheeks and chin did my little (it's actually quite large) skin regemine and waiting a few minutes. I decided if i wanted to get the full effect I had to put on makeup and see if this stuff does what it claims...

How suprised was I! It's actually really good! It kept my skin oil free all night and made my pores look significantly smaller. Not 13 years old smaller, but I'll take what I can get.

Now a little bit about the product. It's called Mac Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone Treatment. Mac says it is "A light, oil-free emulsion that helps cloak visible pores while controlling oil and shine. Applies "wet" for a gentle micro-exfoliation: dries instantly to create an invisible, long-lasting natural matte finish. Ideal for the T-zone." It comes in a small black 15ml tube. Available at Mac retailers or online. Aprox $25 CND. Really good stuff!!
