Soap & Glory The Fab Pore Review

PhotobucketI'm sorry it's taken so long to complete this review (so long I am actually nearly finished the pot!!) but I suppose I wanted to give it a proper and through test. I bought this quite a few months ago now after reading several positive reviews and raves from you lovely bloggers out there.
Hello my name is Louise and I have open pores!!! - yup that's right I am lead to believe they are inherited from my grandma, I wasn't aware you could inherit open pores but I seemingly have along with an oily, spot prone skin even at 31.
This product - Soap & Glory The Fab Pore 15 Minute Facial Peel comes in a 50ml tub, sounded like the product I had been looking for. This product contains Soap & Glory's exclusive PORESHRINK-R-COMPLEX with mushroom extract, salicylic acid, kaolin and antioxidant vitamins E and C.
The product itself is a pinkish cream which is in the clay mask type creamy texture, the mask contains tiny green beads
You can use this mask / peel in two ways either massaging the product onto your face (making sure to burst the beads) concentrating on areas prone to open pores such, as your t-zone -nose and chin, and leaving it for 5 minutes before massaging and rinsing off or you can use it as I tended too as an intense facial /face mask, leaving it for around 15 minutes before rinsing (Excuse the scary pic!!!).
The product had a nice texture and it was pretty easy to apply it to the skin, and the beads were pretty easy to burst. It has a nice fresh smell which reminds me of something but as per usual I can't remember what - lol!. I found it quite easy to wash off either using and sponge or a muslin cloth, but the interesting thing about this product is that it doesn't actually dry or set hard which is great if you don't like masks that tighten on your skin.

Does it shrink your pores - I have to say in my experience not really, when you remove the mask / peel your skin does feel super soft and toned but despite pretty consistent use I haven't really noticed a change in the size of my pores. Having said that I think it did generally improve the texture of my skin and it certainly helped to clear up some of the spots and pimples I had on my chin (probably down to the salicylic acid a known spot clearer) Would I buy this again, yes I probably would although I don't think it's the pore shrinking miracle I hoped it would be - it's certainly made my skin a bit clearer and that can't be a bad thing. You can buy this from Boots for around £6. Any questions please ask x


  1. Looks good, shame that it didn't make much difference to your pores but that's excellent if it helped your skin in other ways.
    thank you for the review! i might have to get my hands on this one hehe. xo

  2. Thanks for the review! I also have a problem with open pores, especially on my t zone.
    I'm tempted to give it a try!
