(Review) The Saem: Power Ampoule Pore Tightening

I have finally got around buying things to shrink my pores! I have been horrified by how awful my pores look sometimes and thought I needed to do something about it. I have started to deep clean my pores 1-2 times a week and also needed an essence to tighten my pores. I received a sample of Lioele's Dr.Ampoule Pore Tightening essence and really liked it but for some odd reason I still gravitated towards The Saem and bought this. So I will tell you about my experiences with this product...

It claims to be an intense pore-tightening ampoule that makes rough skin with enlarged pores feel smoother and tighter. It contains ingredients such as tea tree, arabian coffea seeds, chestnut, persimmon, peppermint, almond extracts and many more.
It does not contain any fragrance in my opinion...
It comes in a plastic bottle and you get 40ml of product which isn't very much..

I was expecting the consistency to be a more liquidy and clear but instead it's almost gel like texture with white colour. I instantly thought that the pipette is absolutely useless with the product and I was right. Sure it is very hygienic way to get the product but the consistency is just too thick for it because the product does not come out easily into the pipette and I found myself struggling trying to get it out.

I have only ever used one pore tightening essence before and I liked how it made my skin feel fresh and tight. This, however, does not make my skin feel either! I only use it around my t-zone and it doesn't have that nice tightening effect like a pore tightening essence should have which was quite disappointing. It does make my skin feel slightly smoother than usual...

Unfortunately it did not minimise my pores...In fact it broke me out! I stopped using it after I had been using it for a month and I don't have spots anymore between my eyebrows, chin or cheeks.

Unfortunately since this product broke me out and did not work for my skin, I cannot provide unbiased pros and cons on this product!

In conclusion, this product broke me out badly! Even when I was unaware of that side effect on my skin, I have to say I was not impressed. The consistency of the product is very thick and heavy. The packaging is cheap and the pipette is useless! It was not what I thought a pore tightening serum should do...Unfortunately this was a complete waste of money for me...

You can get it from Cosmetic-Love for 12.4GBP (approx. 21,840KRW or 18.50USD)

Happy Holidays!
