|This is what I got|
|Same product now comes in a tube|
So this product is a light, transparent gel that you put on your face and when it dries it turns blue to let you know it's ready. You kind of just put it all over your face like a light mask. It's nice that it turns blue because it allows you to see what area you've missed. You leave it on your face for about 10 minutes or so, and then take it off with a warm towel.
Right after you take it off, your skin feels amazing! It's super soft and supple, like a baby's bottom. However, the effect does not last long. By the morning, my skin feels the same as before I used it. So basically I only get to show off my nice skin while I'm sleeping. Lol.
After a few months of using it, I am disappointed to say that it does not have any lasting effect for me. I don't really have any big pores or blackheads, but I expected somewhat of a difference. Like a tighter, smoother look around my nose area where the pores are biggest. But nada, after using it for months. I'm pretty sure it won't start working for me any time soon.
The Epionce lytic I had actually lasted all the way until now, which was a lot longer than I thought. That's about 6 months for one tube, so it makes the $56 price tag seem a lot more reasonable. Even though the Dr. Brandt product is $10 cheaper, it takes a lot more product to cover your face. So it definitely won't last as long.
I will not be buying this product again. But I kind of want to try their other product, the Pore Refiner, since it has pretty high reviews on Sephora. It looks more like a makeup base you put on before leaving the house and it minimizes oil all day. It could be useful for me, because I do tend to get kind of oily by the end of the day. We'll see! In the meantime though, I am sticking with the Epionce lytic. Ordering another one now!
