Do you have the case of very visible pores and excessive oiliness? You can counter it with Glow Recipe's Strawberry BHA Pore-Smooth Blur Drops which promise to refine your pores over time and blur and balance your sebum instantly. Read to know more about its ingredients, pricing, and availability in Singapore.
Glow Recipe Strawberry BHA Pore-Smooth Blur Drops ingredients and claims
You read it correctly. Glow Recipe's newest addition is a pore-clearing and refining treatment and a makeup primer that helps your makeup apply more smoothly. Here's how it does so.
It's powered by encapsulated (time-releasing) beta hydroxy acids (BHA) and strawberry enzymes that help to visibly but gently reduce the appearance of your pores and improve your skin's texture over time. It also contains a plant-derived pore minimiser and strawberry leaf extract that work in tandem to absorb excess sebum and instantly blur and gradually refine your pores.
It's also infused with tapioca and rice — instead of silicone — that lend their mattifying, oil-balancing and skin-smoothing effect, all without clogging your pores in the process. These ingredients also give it a satin-like finish.
In addition to these skin food, the brand claims that the formula is also vegan and cruelty-free, and doesn't contain silicones, silica, parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, drying alcohols, or synthetic fragrance.
Its packaging is made of 41% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic and is 100% recyclable too!
How to apply it
Since it's a hybrid product, there are two ways you can incorporate it into your routine.
If you're using it as a pore treatment, dispense a pea-sized amount and gently pat it on to newly cleansed and toned skin. Apply a moisturiser afterwards. You can use it daily, twice a day.
However, if you're using it as a skin-blurring makeup primer, you should make it the last step of your skincare routine. Let it absorb completely before you go ahead and apply your makeup.
Where to buy it in Singapore
Eager to try the product ASAP? If you can wait a bit longer, it will be available in Sephora Singapore stores and online starting 9 March. It's priced at SGD51 per 30ML.
