Especially if you’re still at school and not working (like me) this was a really good purchase because it is affordable and works well! Pore minimisers like the benefit or smash box ones are really expensive so I am super happy with this product. It makes my skin softer to prep for my foundation or BB cream, it obviously wont completely close all pores but it does a little bit of closing up. Also it doesn’t break me out or produce any grease :)
