Surviving The e-PORE-demic

Large pores make your skin look dull, uneven and rough!

The unsaturated fatty acid in sebum (oil on your face) causes irregular cell merabolism and that leads to enlarged pores.

There are two new products from ettusais that will help you survive the e-PORE-demic. :)

ettusais Pore Care Serum (medicated), $ 54 (15ml) and the Aqua Splash (my favourite!!) $29 (40ml).

The ettusais Pore Care Serum is magic in a gold tube! It's special ingredient is an amino acid derivative which shrinks visible pores, prevents rough skin and stops blemishes.



I use it twice a day, after moisturiser. I dab it on using my third finger (less rough than my index finger!) on my cheeks near my nose and on my chin area under my bottom lip... these are my areas of concern when it comes to pores.



Then once my face is protected and treated, I can put on my make up and head out! It has really reduced the size of my pores, and my skin looks increasingly smoother.



The Aqua Splash is my new favourite product. I take it with me everywhere and it is especially useful when I go on long outdoor shoots with theblogshop for TheStyleHunter every couple of weeks.

We shoot at Haji Lane, and it gets so hot during the day! Our weather is so humid, it makes even my dry skin oily and this affects the staying power of my make up as well as emphasizes the size of my pores.

It's very troublesome to have to blot and keep touching up make up during the shoot. And if I'm not careful, I end up making my face look dull and cakey. You can't conceal pores by just piling on more foundation girls! :(

Now that's a problem of the past. I just shake my little blue bottle of Aqua Splash, hold it about 15cm ( half an arm's length) away from my face, close my eyes, and spray! Then I use my palms to gently smooth the mist over my skin.



Immediately it's a cool and refreshing relief from the heat and humidity. It's practically a spray on touch up because it contains sebum absorbing powder which gives me matte skin plus it freshens my make up. This can keep me going all day.

  2. Does it really help to reduce the size of the pores? I've tried many pore-reducing products but sad to say, they dont work.

  3. @JAPB- it's not a magic over night thing ( for immediate effect, use the pore smooth concealer and zero pore pact... pores will be much less visible, or smoothened out altogether).

    The serum definitely prevents pores from getting more visible, and prevents any new ones from becomming visible. Over time u will see less visible pores (for me it's abt 2 weeks of religious use)

    Hi Holly!

    You mean we can apply Aqua Splash on makeup? and it won't fade at all? will it clog the pore? as it have makeup in between?

  5. yes.. spray it over your make up.

    It helps keep make up looking fresh and dewey yet keeps sebum/shine off.

    It contains a powder substance (so its not a regular mist).. wont clog as ettusais products are non-comedogenic...
