GoodSkin Labs Z-Pore Instant Pore Refiner: Beauty Lab

I don't exactly have huge craters on my face, but each time I peer into my compact I cringe at the sight of enlarged pores on my cheeks and nose. And while there are pricey facials, peels and other treatments to get picture-perfect skin like Halle Berry, I'd rather not shell out the money when there are far easier options. Enter GoodSkin Labs Z-Pore Instant Pore Refiner.

This subtly-tinted cream has a velvety texture thanks to its vitamin E, silicone and mica-based formula. I've been using Z-Pore for about a month and have noticed that I've stopped reaching for blotting sheets and the pores around my nose appear less in-your-face. Plus, it doubles as a primer -- making foundation application smoother... and posing for TwitPics a bit less stressful.

But be warned: a little goes a long way! Apply too much product and you could end up looking like this.
