No one likes enlarged pores that are so visible that no amount of makeup could mask blackheads of whiteheads. If you asked me to describe my skin, one of the first things that come to mind is definitely large pores. I’ve done a lot of research and tried many products to clear and tighten them yet they still remain large and visible. From masks to creams, I’ve tried many forms of products in the hopes of finding one that would rid my skin of pores. Ok, that’s wishful thinking, but at least a product that would reduce the appearance and keep them from getting clogged.
When I received the Heating & Clean Duo from Laneige, I couldn’t wait to see what it had to offer. If you’re unfamiliar with the brand, Laneige is a Korean beauty company specializing in skincare. I tend to appreciate Korean beauty products because they seem to be geared towards asian skin, meaning a skin that’s oilier and prone to breakouts. This duo helps to manage blackheads and excess sebum caused by larged and clogged pores while also leaving the skin hydrated and soothed.
STEP 1: Heating & Clean Duo Heating Gel
This is a treatment that you apply on troubled areas to control excess sebum. It comes out of a soft tube that has a flat head tip, making it easy to evenly apply the product on your t-zone. Immediately upon application, you feel a heating sensation on your skin. The heat helps to loosen any of the gunk trapped in your pores. Leave it on for 15 minutes to allow the product to work into your pores to melt excess sebum away. Rinse off and move onto step 2!
STEP 2: Heating & Clean Duo Clay Mask
This clay mask contains cacao walnut absorb excess sebum and tighten pores. Apply on the same areas where you had the gel cream and allow it to completely dry before rinsing off.
This pore-fecting duo is amazing! Not only are my pores clean, but I see a visible difference. I use this once a week to keep my pores decongested and shine-free.
