Soap & Glory - Fab Pore

I bought Soap & Glorys Fab Pore around 3 months ago now and have been using it on a regular basis since. I hadn't seen any reviews of this product in particular so took a bit of a gamble on a 3 for 2 offer in Boots. This and the other 2 products (can't remember which now!) were my first Soap & Glory purchases after hearing good things. I've nearly run out of it now so I thought I'd do a review for you.

When I first opened this product I thought it seemed quite small with not a great deal of product in it (compared to other brands and considering the price tag of 8.00) however when I used it, I soon realised that a little goes a long way and it lasts much longer than you'd expect.
Another thing I didn't realise until after I purchased it was that it doesn't peel off, despite having "facial peel" written on it. Maybe it's just me (?) but I bought it assuming it was a peel off face mask as that's what I usually prefer (cause I'm lazy) but suprisingly, that hasn't put me off.

This may sound weird but I really like the texture of the product! I just wanna keep poking about in it cause it feels unusual.. Yeah, weird! It is a thick clay with small blue beads which burst when you rub it on your face. It says to leave 5 minutes for a quick freshen or 15 minutes for a deeper clean.. Going back to what I said about being lazy, mine usually gets left on for around an hour! I like that it doesn't crack like most clay face masks, meaning I can talk (does anyone else not talk when they have a face mask on?!) and laugh (Aaron always makes me laugh so it cracks!) without flakey bits going everywhere.

I found this product relatively easy to wash off (I use quite warm water to wash it off then splash my face with cold water afterwards) and it left my skin noticeably cleaner and clearer even after the first use. Most importantly, it actually did make my pores look smaller (temporarily of course, it's not magic)! I have pretty large pores which drives me mad and I'm always looking for products that will minimise them and make them look as small as possible. I have naturally quite oily skin too (grrr) and after washing this product off, my face feels completely oil free but not to the point where it drys it out. If you're not jealous of my skin by now then I should also add that my skin can be sensitive sometimes too, however I've never had a problem with this product at all, unlike Peaches and Clean which I shall be reviewing sooooon.

LOL ;)
Overall, I'm super duper impressed with this and have since been buying lots more Soap & Glory products to try. It does what it says it will do, unlike many other brands/products I've tried in the past so it gets a massive thumbs up from me. If you have large pores/oily skin or if you're lucky like me and have both then I urge you to go and buy this, now! :)
You can purchase it from the Boots website, here or pop into your local store.
