Birchbox Breakdown

We have our fair share of things we wouldn't mind erasing (over-enthusiastic karaoke sessions and our teenage obsession with hair mascara to name a couple!) but helping our pores to disappear would be top of our skincare wish list. Thankfully, this brand new formula from Balance Me uses hardworking ingredients like hyaluronic acid and acacia gum to tighten and blur enlarged pores and smooth and refine your skin's surface for a a perfected complexion.

How to Use

After applying your moisturiser, smooth directly onto the areas that need blurring using gentle patting motions.

Lovely smell

I was delighted to get this in my Birchbox. I've been impressed with the Balance Me samples I've used, so I was keen to get straight into this and try it out.

I use another primer, which works well for me. This one works equally well, and has the bonus of a lovely almost citrus scent.

When I need to replace my full size product this one will certainly be in the running.

Good Primer

Always enjoy using this brand. I've used a few primers but am still not convinced. However, if I 'had' to choose, it would be this one. I like the smell and texture. I was pleased that it wasn't overly sticky and felt nice on my skin. I think I may need more educating on what primers are actually intended for. Overall a very nice product.

Fragranced! Not for sensitive eyes

I don't have crazy sensitive eyes but this made mine water every time and i found myself irritated/squinting it took me a while to realise it was this product doing it :( shame because it's a lovely consistency but one I'll have to pass along and see if my sister has the same result

Best used for an every day primer. Found it a bit to sticky for me.
