The Porefessional: License To Blot - shiny or not ?

I received this product from Ana Maria Tatucu (Beautybarometer) at the second BeautySwap I attended. She knew I had a combination to oily skin so she gave me the License To Blot stick for testing. Thank you again Ana Maria! I was really intrigued by it and excited to try it to see if it really did its job.
The Porefessional: License To Blot. An instant oil-blotting stick for a mattified complexion. This instant oil-blotting stick with tiny invisible blotting spheres mattifies shine for up to six hours after application. The specially designed triangular tip targets shiny zones—the sides of your nose, forehead, and chin—for a smooth, flawless finish.
Suggested Usage: Lightly apply on face using short, swift strokes. Touch up over makeup during the day, whenever you want to blot on the spot.
It comes in a 4.3 gr/0.15 oz. triangular plastic tube for an easy application on difficult to reach places like the sides of the nose. It has a creamy texture, which is a little unusual, being used to blotting tissues or powder (dry textures) and no smell. It is easy to use, you twist the little wheel and the product comes at the other end. You apply it to the places that need blotting.
Before, after 8 hours after putting on the make-up; shiny Tzone, make-up gone from the nose area
After the application the area is indeed mattified, again the creamy texture, over a powder-sebuum area is a little strange. The mattifying effect lasted for around one hour. Then I felt the need to blot again.
After the application on both sides of the forehead :
The product is creamy and is transparent. I photoed the stick twisted to the max. to show you the amount of product there is inside.
  What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates 
Ingredients below:
You can find the product in all Sephora shops and online at the price of aprox. 90ron/aprox.15 pounds.
All in all, The Porefessional: License To Blot is an interesting product, good for travel or for tiny touchups. It does its job but the mattfying effect is short-lasting for me; I did not see any pore minimizing effect for me. I give it the - B grade (the price is too high for only 4 grams of product and the effects on me were not wow!)

  2. bun doar pentu calatorii..am retinut !!!! de cumparat nu cred ca mi-l cumpar oricum.:) daca primesc vreun tester sau esantion pt. calatorie ..e ok...daca nu ..nu.:)

    1. Nu e doar pentru calatorii, e bun si de luat in poseta zilnic pentru mici retusuri, dar e cam scump pentru cantitatea de produs..


I would love to hear from you
