You know that moment when you finally open the snapchat app after spending two hours beating your face? Yeah, I love those photo ready moments! Moments when you feel lovely and you know you look lovely and your camera actually agrees! But wait…your camera doesn’t agree and your pores look angry…your crush is online and nothing is going right. That’s a page out of my dairy by the way.
I’ve struggled with large pores as well as acne scars and under eye discolouration for a while now, and since I have successful reduced the apearance of my scars and the hyperpigmentaion, so the pores were next! I received the Ibuki survival kit from shiseido complimentary of Influenster and I was stoked to try it out. Especially the Smart Filtering Smoother serum.
The Survival kit included:
Ibuki Smart Filtering Smoother
Ultimate Power Infusing Concentrate
Ibuki Quick Fix Mix
Ibuki Beauty Sleeping Mask
I tried all the products but my favorites were the Smoother serum and the Power Infusing Concentrate. The Serum was my favourite because it makes you look photo ready at all time! I have worn it with on bare face days and with a full face of makeup. It blurs your pores so much, making your foundation look a lot smoother. Next is the Power Infusing Concentrate, I used this after applying my toner every day and night for three weeks and I must admit that it has helped with balancing my skin.
I will admit that I am not a big fan of the masks because they are scented. I am allergic to most scented products and the night masks are strongly scented. The first night I had it on, I barely slept, so I would not recommend this item to you if you get irritated by scents easily. My face did feel softer in the morning but I only tried it the one time.
I’ve had some good makeup days, some not so good days and some “Oh no” days (if you have been following for long a enough, then you probably know 🙁 ), but on both days, I’ve had one less thing to worry about, my pores. I would definitely recommend this kit to you if you are always on the move and desire to look photo ready when needed. I mean, it’s not called the survival kit for nothing!
