Primer Review: Lioele Secret Pore Balm

Bonjour, everyone^^

I've been contemplating lately and no matter what trouble I have, I always be grateful to God. There are lot of I should be grateful about, family, friends, people who love and care about me, and all things God gives me chance to get.
Meet my post again, this time I talk about make up primer. For those who have big pores, I'm sure u know how important it is to use pore minimizing primer.

If u read my post HERE, u would know how I got this product.

Those are the sample sachets I got from Lioele counter at Grand City.
The SA was very kind to gave me 6 samples, three of them are those in the picture^^

This is how the product looks like.
It's a white cream or white balm if I may say.

This is how it looks like on the back of my hand

The commercial info, I took the pic randomly from google.
U can see on the pic about how to use this product.

Ages : all ages
Usage : before make up foundation/ bb cream

4. Form and Formula
Consistency: thick, concentrated, soft dry texture balm
Color : white

5. The amount of product in 1 item
I only got sample sachet which is 1 sachet enough for 4- 5 times usage.

6. Scent
The scent is somewhat floral (I’m not sure, I’m bad at describing scent). The smell is the soft one and stay a while after I apply the product.

7. Product Finish
The result is powdery matte. It has smooth touch  on our skin surface. The Dimethicone plays its role in creating this soft silky surface on the skin.

8. Blend- ability
The balm is light on skin and easy to spread, easy to settle on skin.
The strange thing is I had problem in blending bb creams I had after applying this balm. This primer made the BB cream harder to spread and blend evenly. Even when I use BB Cream from Lioele, this one did not give exception. Since I was only having Etude Precious Mineral BB Creams and 3 Lioele BB Creams, I tell my opinion based on my experience blending those product. I did not try to use it with foundation back then so I can’t tell if it also has blending problem with foundation.

9. Skin tolerance and benefit
This is for all skin type. If u have sensitive skin which can’t tolerate high percentage of silicone derivatives, I suggest u stay away from it. If u are currently suffering from acne or other skin problem, don’t use it. It is gonna worsen ur acne.
The benefit I got was that this product could hold my excess oil and made my face stayed matte for longer time than usual. I blotted less than when I did not wear this primer.

It does its job to minimize the appearance of my big pores. Since I don't have any fine wrinkles or lines, I don't know how the result with those problems.

I ceased the use when my face was in the sensitive mode or when I had pimples on my face. I used it again when my skin relieved to normal.

10. Order of use
Facial Wash -- > Toner -- > Moisturizer -- > Lioele Secret Pore Rich Balm -- > CC/ BB Cream/ Foundie

Since this one is sebum absorber, so when u apply this product, pay more attention to T- zone/ the oiliest part of ur face.

11. Overall Conclusion
This is a decent face primer for covering pores and creating smooth canvas on skin surface. 

Repurchase? No, my skin is pretty sensitive and I rarely use primers. Besides, the presence of petrolatum in the ingredients list is not the kind I wanna have.

Tell me ur thoughts, pretties :) Are u a Lioele user too?
