This week I happened to stumble upon what I consider a beauty divas goldmine! You see Soap & Glory has added a slew of brand new products to their collection of already wonderful products.
One of those products is the newest Soap & Glory Fab Pore.
When I spotted it I grabbed up 2 of the tubs; one for me, and one for my best friend who is also a hardcore fan of the Soap & Glory line.
Fab Pore comes packaged in a thin little cardboard package that is of course, pink in color. The box itself has a retro black and white photograph of a young woman who has relatively flawless skin! What makes the Soap & Glory line so attractive to me (besides the actual product) is the way they package their things. The retro photos make them stick out, and frankly impossible to miss in stores.
According to the box, you are to smear the face mask on to your face and massage into your skin until all of the green beads are dissolved. You can keep it on for 5 minutes for a quick refreshing cleanse, or longer for a deep do it yourself facial.
The results of course are supposed to shrink your large pores!
I unscrewed the lid, and took a sniff. I was expecting it to smell like the original Soap & Glory formula which is soft, feminine and powdery. Fab Pores however has a much more striking scent of mint and cream. It reminds me a lot of the scent that many of their Soap & Glory Spa products have.
I did not waste any time. After unscrewing the lid, I scooped out some of the cream which has a very soft and silky texture to it. I then spread it all around my skin. I did feel the green beads in the formula, and they easily dissolved into my skin as I spread it around my face.
The scent was a little intense, but as soon as it all dried on my face the scent died down slightly making it easier to inhale.
The formula left my face feeling cool and dry as it dried, but not tight, which I liked. I do not like when masks leave my face feeling tight, because usually the result is dry flaky skin. I was hoping this would not be the case with Fab Pore.
I let the formula sit on my face for up to 15 minutes, and then I rinsed it off with warm water.
My larger pores were still visible of course, I was not expecting to see instant results. After using it for a few days though I will say that pores look tighter.
Anyhow, when I rinsed it off my skin felt softer, and very clean. It did however feel a little dry, which was expected. A quick moisturizer to my face though and all was well.
It seems to be working just fine. Although I have used other pore shrinking products that work a little better, I do enjoy giving myself a full facial from time to time, and having Soap & Glory Fab Pore on hand is definitely a pampering treat!
The downside is that there is only 1.6 ounces of the formula in the plastic jug. I mean there is plenty of formula in there for many uses, but it does not last very long considering you use a lot to cover the entire face. I imagine I will get 2 treatments per week out of it, for up to 8 weeks. A 2 month supply basically.
The price of Fab Pore is also a little high, at $12.99, which is steep for a facial mask. You can find it exclusively at Target stores, or on Amazon. Click to view.
