Givenchy Skin Targetters Skin Embellishing Serum Pore Minimizer – behind this long name lies detox serum, which not only cleans and tightens the pores, but also gives the skin a radiance, velvety, healthy appearance.
I use cosmetics of a luxury class infrequently, nevertheless I prefer pharmacy products at lower prices, which absolutely does not affect its quality. And few of the average women agree to spend around 50 dollars (800 UAH / 2300r) behind 30ml serum. In addition, in the cosmetic market a lot of products with a similar effect, which are several times cheaper.
The manufacturer, first of all, guarantees the narrowing of pores and regulation of the activity of the sebaceous glands. There is no information about rashes and acne in the description of the information, but due to its components, the tool is capable of relieving inflammation.
The matting effect, smoothing of the skin microrelief and freshness for the whole day complete the modest list of serum properties. It is also important that the tool does not have moisturizing properties and its use does not eliminate the need for a moisturizer.
Of the active ingredients in Pore Minimizer are available ginger, extract of burnet, cinnamon and ginseng. However, when considering the packaging, the fact that alcohol among the ingredients is already in second place. So due to which pores are narrowed and inflammation is removed!
There are and zinc sulfate, which is present in all products for problem skin. But plant extracts, as expected, are on the last positions of the list.
I can not say that I have big problems with the pores, but they are. So, my t-zone is prone to fat and, as a result, the presence of oily sheen. In addition, in the area of the nose and its wings the pores are really enlarged, so I regularly wipe these areas with alcohol-containing lotions.
I’ll start with the packaging – the usual bottle in the form of a dispenser, capacity 30ml. It is used very economically – one click allocates a dose of serum, which is enough for exactly the t-zone, no more, no less. With daily use, I had enough Pore Minimizer bottle on three months – A great option for the summer.
The first thing I can not tell you about is aroma. Not a smell, but a scent. Something mean between expensive perfumes and a luxurious bouquet of flowers. Probably all luxury-class cosmetics smell like that – subtle, gentle, unobtrusive and subtle. For serum means not very similar, rather, on a translucent gel.
The Minimizer is applied very easily, it is absorbed almost instantly. At the same time, the aroma somehow quickly changes to the smell of alcohol. Matting effect visible instantly, it remains on the skin within 5-7 hours even on the hottest day. There is no feeling of stickiness, skin is velvety. As a final moisturizer, I used the usual BB cream.
As for the action directly on the pores, here, unfortunately, I did not see a stunning effect. Yes, the skin is matte and velvety, but no more. Besides, I had two too enlarged pores, and I really hoped that the miracle serum would narrow them, but, alas.
In the end, for 2300r. (50doll / 800grn) I received regular matting cream, in which the main active ingredient is alcohol. From ginger and cinnamon, I did not even smell.
As you can see, not always a high price can guarantee the high quality and effectiveness of a cosmetic product. I regret that for similar money I did not buy a more efficient luxury class tool that I have already tested.
