Don’t laugh, I bought this because of the design having no idea what it did. It wasn’t expensive, so what the heck.
BEAUTIFUL packaging. Korean packaging does not normally look like this, as you can see from my photo stream on the side. This is really heavily americanized, but even still, it looks plain awesome. The diecut is what got my attention. Etude House found a way to make an interesting diecut that wouldn’t become crushed or ruined during shipping. Boxes stack together, fitting over the diecut perfectly so they are not affected. Genius! The color scheme is another thing that grabbed my attention too. It’s so vintage, the type included, and really pops off the shelf. [/Design nerd] Ha!
So apparently this product is another primer. I’ve already reviewed a couple of them such as Laneige and The Face Shop and I wasn’t happy with either of those, so I was really hoping this would be different. Amazingly, it is! Goodbye PoreEver is more of a coating for your visible pores to shield them from impurities and makeup. It does coat very thickly, almost as if you were to put petroleum jelly on your nose, but not so tacky and shiny. After I applied, I tried a bit of bb cream over it and it makes your pores nearly invisible. It was really interesting and at the same time it didn’t cause any break outs all day long.
Now, I’m not sure you’d want to put something like this all over your face, but you would probably do better just on your nose and your larger pores. So far, my favorite primer yet :)!
