Loreal Youth Code Pore Vanisher Texture Perfector Review

On a recent trip to CVS I noticed the display of the new Loreal Pore Vanisher. How could I miss the bright pink display! I decided to give it a try and bought it.

Here is the 1.4 oz. size. The packaging is a basic squeeze tube, but I like that it's pink. Lol. 

The product is a beige color but applies colorless. You get no color from this whatsoever.

It feels slightly silicone-y, but has nowhere near the amount of slip as Smashbox photo finish, or many of the other primers on the market. I like the fact that it's less slippery, because even though a lot of the primers claim to help make your makeup last if you have oily skin, I find that's not the case. I have very oily skin and feel like when there is too much silicone it just glides all over my already slick face! Lol. Another problem I have with primers is because I have oily skin, it will make my foundation pool into corners, and areas I produce more oil, which makes my foundation look like a mess after hours of wear. Although some foundations take part in the problem as well, so I don't fully blame the primers. 

You really have to experiment and just find what works for you. After years of experimenting I know what to look for when buying face products for myself.

I am loving this Pore Vanisher! I know I keep referencing primers but this is essentially a primer. The directions say to use this after moisturizer, which is when I use my primer during makeup application.

During the past week I have found my skin is staying matte longer throughout the day. I never touch up with powder but will blot with blotting tissues if necessary.

It has a very light fragrance to it, but you don't really smell it after you apply it. 

I love that this is easily accessible. You can get it at any drugstore, target, Walmart, or Ulta. 

The price is a little high for drugstore at $24.99, but you can always search for coupons on I will say it's definitely worth it though! I pay more for the other primers I use so I'm saving money with this one. 

I already use the youth code moisturizer so I guess it's no surprise that I love this. There is also a new Youth Code texture Perfector serum which I'm going to pick up soon! 

Have you tried the Loreal Youth Code Pore Vanisher? What do you think about it?
