The Etude House Goodbye Pore Ever is a primer that claims to minimize the look of enlarged pores and it controls sebum production, it greatly improves makeup longevity as well. Since it's a primer, you have to apply this after your skincare routine in the morning, but before you apply make up. It fills in deep pores in the skin and it creates a matt and velvety soft surface, which will make it easier for you to apply make up. There is 20 ml of product in it.

It has a gorgeous matt baby blue and pink packaging with yellow polka dots on it. It has English as well as Korean descriptions on it. At the side you can see a shape of a face. I just love it that the packaging of Etude House is always super cute, no matter what kind of product it is, it has great colors and the packaging is great. The product goes out easily, just squeeze the tube a bit and the product will come out.
SWATCHES AND TEXTURE
As you can see the primer is pastel yellow. It looks translucent when you spread the primer out. The product is very easy to spread by the way. It does have a silicone-base formula but it doesn't feel greasy. It actually feels moist and velvety soft on the skin, i just love that feeling!
This primer contains perfume and i have to be honest, the scent is nice. It's not overwhelming at all and the scent is actually very similar to the original vaseline hand cream!
• PRETTY GOOD Oil Control!
• Nice scent
• It fills in all the pores, makes it easier to apply make up
• It feels soft and it looks matte on the skin
• Easy to spread the product out
• It feels moist on the skin
• Didn't break me out
• Dries in a few seconds (depends on how thick you apply it)
• Not an expensive product
• Great and adorable packaging
• You only need a little bit of product
• Not available everywhere
• It doesn't minimizes the look of enlarged pores, sizes of the pores looks the same
• Probably won't work on people with extremely oily skin types.
I've been using this product for two weeks and I use it on my nose and chin area. As I said before, the oil control is pretty good! I stay matte for around 4 hours after application, it really helps to control my oils and I don't have to use blotting sheets as many times throughout the day. I just love it that this product is so easy to spread and it feels super soft on the skin. I'm loving the matte finish and that it doesn't dry out my skin ( i have a combination dry skin ). Since it fills in all the pores, it makes it very easy to apply my bb cream afterwards. It's a pity that it doesn't minimizes the look of the pores though but i'm amazed by all those pros that i mentioned. Therefore I will definitely buy another one after i'm done with this tube.
TO BUY OR NOT?
Buy if you are looking for an affordable pore primer with great oil control. Don't buy if you have extremely oily skin or if you don't like silicone-based primers.
