Mally Poreless Face Defender with Sponge
I Admit It, I'm A Convert
When i found Mineral Veil years ago, it was like a choir of angels was singing "Ahhh!" over my head. AT LAST, something that truly made me look airbrushed and my pores look smaller. That is STILL an excellent product, and many other finishing powders, both those offered by QVC and some which are not, are equally good. This looks - weird. How could this be so good? This crazy, clear substance? But I wanted to try it., and fortunately it was an item in a configuration that was a TSV. And I'm hooked. I look just as flawless, just as smooth, but without the powder. It feels smooth, almost slippery on, so it's a little like a primer, but on top. It really is a unique item and I am surprised I like it as much as I do. Totally worth a try. Maybe not for oily skins and I'll stick with powder in summer, but this is great for the rest of the year.
Is this wax?
Realy not sure what this product is suppose to do for you. It feels like I'm putting a fine coat of wax on my face. Don't see what the fuss is all about. Sending back post haste.
I just got this a few days ago...it is wonderful. ..love love love!
I don't understand all the great reviews
I used this as directed and pressed into the skin. The problem is it picks up and removes your make-up.
Another winning product from Maly
I had been out of this product for a while. When I saw it on Mally's show reordered. Love it. Covers pores and gives a flawless appearance to makeup. When you are 75 you need all the help you can get. And this product delivers. Weightless but does what Mally says it will do. So glad I "refound" this product. The best. Follow the instructions and you should be pleased with the result.
Best Shine and pore control ever
This product is unbelievable. No chalky look. Stays on forever and controls shine and minimizes pores. I have bought Estée Lauder, Bare Minerals, Clinique, Lancôme etc. and nothing compares to this. Apply lightly though and dab in place so it does not look like you have something on or grayish. Have worn over loose mineral foundation and liquid foundation and works well with both.
Works, But Only For A Few Hours Of No-shine
First, I think the price is ridiculous...this amount of product should be about $20 at the very, very most...and even that seems like a lot for just a finishing product. I followed the instructions exactly and when you first put it on - it does indeed take away all shine and make you look poreless - which is awesome, of course! However, this look only lasts about 3 hours...at which point you start to shine. And at that point, you can't just layer more Poreless Defender on top of your now-oily face - it just doesn't have a good result. So, it's a great product if you only wear makeup for about 3 hours...for most of us, that isn't the case. Lastly, this product isn't travel/purse friendly - the compact is huge and the sponge is gigantic! This needs to be a portable compact where the sponge can be stored inside of it. Had to return this product.
Great product! Makes your face feel so smooth and it conseals those pores!
Good, but the case is trouble
Overall, I recommend this product and continue to purchase when I run out. I use it at the end of my makeup routine to set it and mask shine. Upon immediate application, it provides a beautiful, finished look-- so much so, that you would expect the result to last longer than it does. However, my main issue, preventing a five star review is the case. As someone who sells finger nail polish, why would Mally make this case so hard to open? It is so ridiculous that you have to use your nails and sometimes the polish chips or dents from it. Not to mention that the sponge doesn't fit in this particular case. But I can get past that, but the case really needs to be redesigned to be nail-friendly.
Good Product for Pore
I have been using for almost a month. It has great benefits for your pores-- make them disappear and gives your skin a great mate finish. I have oily skin-- not just T zone-- but all over. I use the little paper products to dab the excess oil, and I was using a great "Rice" powder based finishing powder by Urban Decay. I first tried putting this Face Defender under my foundation - on top of my primer -- no real results. I found this product works best as the finishing step. In the morning I apply and my face looks great. Pores --what pores-- smooth mate finish-- I am pleased. Then at lunch-- I use my oil absorbing paper and put a little loose powder on-- and then I tried to reapply the Face Defender. I found it did not do as well on the reapplications -- Could be my oily skin, but it seems to move my makeup and take some of it off. And yes I am dab, dab, dabbing, you must- apply like Mally says, do not swish or rub. I plan to use in the mornings only as finisher, and use my paper and rice powders for my mid day oil control. Needs some improvements for second applications to look good. Nice Product. Oh and be careful about heat. Mine came via the mail, and it was hot here, so when I opened my compact -- some of it had already moved to one side. Oh and one other reason for the 4 stars instead of 5-- It is kind of messy. It gets everything stuck in the compact. I am always cleaning debris-- pet hair, my hair and other things out of the compact. I know it sounds gross but just be aware this product needs a little care-- and you must apply correctly-- cant over due. Thanks Mally for great pore coverage.
I was very disappointed in this product and will not order any Mally products going forward.
Love This Product!!!!
I have been using this for about two weeks now and I just love it! It's amazing how it makes your face look so soft and muted...really makes your makeup stay all day...much better than using a powder on your face! :-) Thanks Mally for a great product! My only suggestion woukd be to include a smaller sponge applicator for on the go touch ups if needed. :-)
