Excessive sebum and monster pores are the biggest deterrents in getting a perfect, flawless makeup finish. Dry skin, ageing, sagging skin and also oily skin causes our pores to enlarge.
Apart from causing pores to grow bigger, oily skin with overactive oil glands can cause blockage in pores which will then result in inflammation within the pores. Inflamed pores with sebum build-up constantly stretches the wall of the pore canal which will eventually lead to loss of elasticity around the pore area. Without any proper care, these pores can enlarge to become monster pores. Bear in mind that enlarged pores cannot shrink naturally, but can get larger over time.
With Laneige’s all-new Mini Pore range and the BB Cushion Pore Control, flawless skin is within your reach in no time! Laneige’s Mini Pore range which comprises of the Mini Pore Waterclay Mask and Mini Pore Blurring Tightener will first be deployed onto your skin to manage those pores.
Mini Pore Waterclay Mask, 70ml (RM100)
The Mini Pore Waterclay Mask is a watery gel-type clay that is effective at controlling excessive sebum, tightens pores and supplies moisture to dry pores. It is formulated with Pore Minisizing™, a formula which contains Mint Water. Mint Water strengthens the skin’s barrier by supplying moisture to the skin and by providing care for pore dryness. It also contains Pine Needle Extract which prevents the enlargement of pores by controlling excessive sebum secretion.
With a watery base, the mask is easy to apply while offering a moisturizing feel. Upon application, the mask dries quickly without any feeling of itchiness or tingling effect and it also leaves the visible effect of reducing the pore size.
Clinical tests done on the Mini Pore Waterclay Mask have shown that 93% of respondents felt their skin has tightened while 91% of them said their skin texture feels smoother and softer after washing in the morning. The Mini Pore Water Clay Mask also removes blackheads while clearing up impurities that are stuck in the pores.
Do you know?
The clay formulated into the Minipore Waterclay Mask is a naturally extracted mud from the Shinan area, the only 1st grade uncontaminated area of mud flat and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The clay has excellent sebum absorption with its fine particles and large surface area from its holes.
Mini Pore Waterclay Mask

I was definitely excited about these... as I know I had some pore problem around my T- zone, and this was indeed a blessing... a real blessing
I couldn't wait to try it out, so when I got home upon obtaining my jar of this Mini Pore Waterclay Mask, I quickly washed my face and applied it. However to make it even more effective, you can stem your face or use a warm towel to open the pores up before applying it.
I left it on for 10 minutes and relished the tingling sensation as I patiently waited for the mask to dry.
Once dried, you probably can see some of the pores I have especially on my T-zone area, especially the nose.... To wash it off, use a cleansing oil to soften the mask and the accompanying sea sponge which is so soft on the skin to help clean it off... Then I applied my Laneige clear c advanced effector before continuing with the Mini Pore Blurring Tightener...
In my opinion, I really like this mask too!!! Not just for the sake of liking it but it works on me. I feel that my skin is so much fresher and clearer after just one use....
Mini Pore Blurring Tightener, 40ml (RM135)
The Mini Pore range also include the Mini Pore Blurring Tightener, an embossed skincare to control oil shine and to tighten pores. It also works to blur pore lines and care for enlarged and dry pores caused by excessive sebum secretion.
Similar to the Mini Pore Waterclay Mask, the Blurring Tightener is formulated with Pore Minisizing™ with Mint Water and Pine Needle Extracts. The combination of these extracts strengthens the skin’s barrier by supplying moisture to the skin while treating pore dryness. Besides that, it also controls excessive sebum secretion to prevent further enlargement of pores.
The presence of Mint Water provide moisture, and also prevents pore enlargement by controlling inflammatory factors. With lesser inflammation, the pore size can be controlled to avoid monster pores. Used as the last step of your skincare regime, the Mini Pore Blurring Tightener will boost the effects of prior skincare steps, control oil and sebum production and lastly, prevent pore enlargement from accelerating.
Clinical tests done on the Mini Pore Blurring Tightener indicate an 86% decrease in monster pore size while skin tone and makeup application show an improvement of 87%
And this is my own Minipore Blurring Tightener.
I use it after my Laneige clear c advanced effector especially at my problem area which is my T-Zone... and sometimes on the whole face. It gives off a very slight tingling and cooling sensation when I use it which I like. But what that really makes me excited is that after using this, my pores definitely feel and look smaller... almost invisible...
Laneige’s pore solution enables women to skip preparatory stages of makeup
application, which are often needed to conceal skin troubles such as enlarged
pores, acne and blemishes.
Now that the monster pores are managed and cared for, the next step is to achieve flawless makeup. With the Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control, 2.5 seconds is all you need for a beautiful flawless skin!
A favourite among fans of Laneige, the BB Cushion Pore Control can help women achieve a perfect, flawless, pore-free makeup finish as it is formulated to target large pores, which remains one of the biggest stumbling blocks in achieving an airbrushed, photo-ready look. While it serves as a makeup base, the BB Cushion Pore Control also possesses Pore Control Care.
It contains Pore Purifying Complex™, formulated with Melia, Keratinase and Salicylic Acid that works to remove poison and waste (from excessive sebum and external pollutants) around the pores while at the same time improves the skin capability to defend the skin, preventing it from forming sebum oxidation and inflammation that can cause acne and blemishes.
Besides being formulated with Pore Control Care, the BB Cushion Pore Control also contains Tight Silicon Elastometer which is slim enough to gently fill up the areas in between the pores. It is also formulated with Soft Focus Powder that works to diffuse reflection. The presence of these features makes the BB Cushion Pore Control excellent for pore and skin bump coverage.
It offers strong UV protection with SPF50+PA+++ coupled with a sweat-proof formula. This ensures the BB liquid remains on your skin despite the hot weather. Besides that, it also provides a cooling sensation upon application as it reduces the skin’s temperature by 3 degrees Celsius.
The Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control SPF50+PA+++ is available in 6 shades namely True Beige, Natural Beige, Sand Beige, Brown Beige and two new shades which include Pink Beige (for a fair and pinkish complexion) and Cocoa Beige (ideal for darker skin tone).
Here is mine... I have the Sand Beige shade and it suits me perfectly. Now I can get my own touch up for a more flawless look to cover all my blackheads and pigmentation in just a few seconds...
I did not quite know what to expect when I first applied it on but hey, I really love the texture. It is a creamy type of texture, not powdery like I thought it to be. Just gently and quickly dab it all over your face, especially where your flaws are an in a few seconds you will find your face much more flawless and radiant then before....
And yes, it stayed on perfectly for the whole day... I am so loving this Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control SPF50+PA+++. It is going to be in my handbag from now on to replace my compact powder.
Oh gosh... thank you so very much Laneige for these amazingly innovative products that are such a blessing to one such as me... especially since I am hitting my 40s soon and my skin is no longer as flawless or tight as it used to be ....
