Products for Minimizing Pores!

Hey everyone! So I recently started noticing that some people have very clear skin but their skin still doesn’t look perfectly smooth. I think this is mainly due to big pores. What better way to get rid of them then by using primers and face masks? Here are top rated products that I have put in order from cheapest to most expensive! Prices range from $3.00 to $32.00!


Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque- 8 oz 

This product claims: “Mint Julep Masque is the original natural home treatment developed by a dermatologist that helps dry up acne pimples, rinse away blackheads and shrink enlarged pores. Even for individuals who are fortunately free of skin problems, Mint Julep Masque is a refreshing facial treatment that helps relaxed tired muscles and ease tension lines on the face and neck.”
I personally have this product and love it! It has a tingling and cooling sensation too! I’ve gotten my friends to try it and we all notice smoother skin!
