Shrink those pores!

I don't know about you, but I have HUGE pores around my t-zone! Giant, icky, visible pores. There are three products that I use, however, to shrink my pores (or at least the appearance of them).
This first tool may look scary but it is an absolute LIFESAVER. This is actually just a blackhead tool that you can find at any drugstore or Ulta. First take a warm wet washcloth and lay it over your face (warm water opens up your pores). Then take this tool and press it over your pores to completely clean them out and get all of the old makeup and gunk out of them. Yes, it is uncomfortable and yes, it does make your face puffy and red for an hour or two but it is so worth it!

After I use the semi-frightening blackhead tool, I take this Queen Helene Mint Julep Face Masque. This masque is a green clay substance and reminds me of the face mask the girls in Grease use! It helps clear up acne, tightens your skin, and shrinks your pores. Not to mention, I love the minty smell! You can also use this masque as an overnight spot treatment!

My last and, might I add, favorite pore shrinking product is Benefit's Porefessional primer. I just take a small dab of this after I use my regular primer and apply it to my t-zone where my pores are the largest. Your pores will instantly look smaller prior to your makeup application!

Any good pore minimizing products that you use?? Leave them in the comments!
