Time to place the focus on your skin. Now that the weather is warmer, I tend to wear less makeup because a full face of creams, primers, foundations etc. feels heavy and can melt right off in the heat and humidity. So skin has to looks great!
I have been testing great products sent to me for my honest review. These products have been helping hydrate my skin while making my pores look smaller!
Also, get ready for a FAB giveaway from Hada Labo Tokyo! Good Luck!
Dr. Jart+ Pore Medic Pore Minish Cleansing Bubble ($32 USD) — This mild formula contains a duo of bubble mechanisms to help tighten and unclog pores while removing dead skin cells and controlling excess oil. The result is brighter, firmer, deeply purified skin without irritation or dryness.
What I think: Such a fantastic product (and line)! This fun cleanser bubbles the dirt and gunk right out of your pores. After use, my skin is cleaner and my pores seem smaller, plus my skin is nicely hydrated!

Lumene’s Bright Now Vitamin C BB Serum ($21.99 USD) — This ultra-lightweight, pore minimizing, colorless serum contains light-reflecting pigments that add an instant glow to your complexion. The sheer finish Vitamin C BB Serum is completely free of harmful parabens and synthetic colorants, giving your skin only what it really needs!
What I think: This is an affordable, but very effective serum. It has the consistency of a light cream, but absorbs right into the skin and does not leave it greasy at all. It also leaves a subtle glow. I have noticed that my skin looks smoother, and used after my Dr. Jarts+ cleanser, my pores are very small indeed!
Available at CVS, CVS.com, Ulta, Ulta.com, and Dermstore.com.
Sebamed Moisturizing Face Cream ($19.95 USD) — Most creams and lotions have key ingredients that create a protective barrier on the surface of the skin to lock in moisture to maintain a healthy pH balance of 5.5. For optimum moisture, slather on Sebamed Moisturizing Face Cream immediately after cleansing or a hot shower, before the skin cools and your pores begin to close.
What I think: My skin is becoming very sensitive as I age. I love using sensitive skin products that have great anti-aging benefits. This cream is awesome at night as it hydrates as I sleep. I love that it doesn’t irritate my skin at all!
Available at SebamedUSA.com.
Hada Labo Tokyo Protecting Day Lotion ($17.99 USD) — Combines broad spectrum sunscreen with Super Hyaluronic Acid™ to replenish moisture and protect skin against the harmful effects of sun exposure. Helps strengthen skin’s resistance to signs of premature aging. Gentle formula leaves skin feeling comfortable, smooth and protected.
