The smell is better than some other products out there (like tea tree.) But the smell isn't great and not something I find particularly soothing which is something I like in facial products.
Unfortunately like a lot of other products out there it was incapable of getting rid of the black heads on my chin. I only know of one product so far that has been able too but it's quite harsh on my skin which is why I bought this product.
ON A POSITIVE NOTE -- it did leave my skin feeling very soft but that's about it, unfortunately.
Doesn't do much for me. (Sorry soap & glory.)
You, people, also should start reading ingredients and be more interested in your health. 5 types of parabens in this??? No thanks, I wouldn't appreciate getting cancer. Got this from mom, tried for 2 weeks because I was desperate about my blackheads but it doesn't seem that something is going to help... To the rubbish bin!
Helps for 1 day, blackheads actually become less visible, but the next day you wake up with your old nice blackheads...
First impression is that's it's not too small a tub for the price. This is the first Soap and Glory product I've tried, so not too sure what to expect.
Product goes on nice and smooth - I can feel the green beads giving a little bit of an exfoliating effect, and can feel it starting to work even before I've finished applying it! I was expecting it to be a peel-off mask as opposed to a wash-off, but that's ok.
15 mins are nearly up, and I can really feel the tightness in my skin - not unpleasant, it just feels like it's working. Time to go wash off.
It washes off nicely too - doesn't leave any gunky residue like some others I've tried. Cloe-up inspection of pores - problem pores visibly reduced. Still there, but it's only th first application! Blackheads (of which I suffer terribly) are also reduced, and skin looks fresher and feels a little softer. I'm off to exfoliate as well, before applying mosturiser (I think a proper clean is needed, to ensure it's all off properly if nothing else), but happy with results.
I bought this product on the way home tonight after hearing about it from a friend. I'm actually starting to write this review while waiting for the 15 minutes to be up, so this is sort of an 'out the box' review.
Leaves my skin feeling dry so I used my "Daily Youth" moisturiser afterwards. I'm very disappointed in myself for falling for the "facial peel" line - I thought I was buying a peel off facemask. Hope I'm not the only one to fall for this misleading phrase.
This mask is pretty good, but I wont buy it again because I don't like the scent. Why oh why do all Soap & Glory's face scrubs and masks smell so horrible? I keep buying different ones in the hope that they'll smell nicer but they all seem to have the same minty chemically scent... It's not only really masculine but also makes your face cold and tingly (which would maybe be nice if you lived in a really hot sweaty country but not the UK!) Please, please can we have something with a fruity scent, or a sweet one, or a lavendery one - anything except this cold, cold mint! I love the smells of the body products, it's just the face stuff :(
it says to use every 2-3 days..i think lol but i wanted quick results so i used it everyday for around 4 days, at first a tried to extract as many of my pores as i could before puttuing it on my face (my nose especialy) and left it for 15 mins, i didnt see much deference at first but over the next few days after leaving it on for 5 mins i saw a huge difference, harldy and black heads at all and my pores were alot less noticable and my make up easier to apply and lasted longer, i now only use this every few days and I LOVE IT!
the reason ive given this 4 stars instead of 5 is because i think yo should get more in the little tub, and also my skin was a little dry and flakey after useing it for the full 15 mins and my pores are still noticable but for the price its soo worth the spend id rather buy this than my usual clarins pore minimising serum wich does make pore dissapear but u dont get enough for what u pay for!
i will recomend this to anyone with open pores :) im very happy with this thank you S&G xxx
AMAZING! stuff, ive had touble with open pore and black heads for years, they were soo noticable and my make up never sat right on my T-Zone,
I normally do it when I'm in the bath relaxing at the end of a busy weekend at work on a Sunday night before Mr Selfridges starts on ITV. (Great show btw) It relaxes me and make my skin feel fantastically smooth and looked fresher.
Its worth every penny! I've been using it since Christmas time (2012) twice a week and I've notice a transformation in my skin.
PLEASE MAKE IT A BIT BIGGER TO MAKE IT LAST LONGER ITS SOOOOO GOOD
Love it and I love to review your products on my blog too ;) http://beautiful-wolrd-from-my-eyes.blogspot.co.uk/
A basic little tub but it contains something very powerful!It describes its self in its 'blurb' on the back as "a real deep-cleaning do-it-yourself kind of 'facial'" and it doesn't disappoint. I'm obsessed with your products and always love to go and linger around the soap&glory display in my local boots from darlo, to teesside park and Middlesbrough and always have to purchase some.
I always follow with Clear Here moisturiser to maximise the effects.
So pleased with this product! Well done S&G! :)
I have been using this 3/4 times a week for the past couple of weeks & my word, what a difference it has made! I'm 24 & still get spots / blackheads & have enlarged pores on the sides of my nose. But this has made an amazing improvement. My skin looks so much brighter, is smoother, smaller pores & no spots since using it! I even love applying it, to pop the little green beads! Smells lush & I can feel it working.
Only thing I would say bad is I WANT A BIGGER SIZED TUB like 100/150/200g tub as it takes me a while to get my hands on it as when I find somewhere that sells it, when I next go back they're gone so. A bigger tub would be excellent (:
The stuff is great !! Really 'shrinks your pores', or makes them less visible and I also noticed it reduced the redness on my face, black heads seem to be less of a problem (I used to struggle with them SO BAD) and I have healthier looking skin. && I'm dead stingy with how much I use!! So if I used the proper amount the results would be much better I'm sure.
This is the best scrub I have ever used! I struggle with blackheads and large pores but this is just amazing, I could see my pores and blackheads get smaller after the first use. It's brilliant! I'm on my second tub of the stuff, one word of advice would be to not use after exfoliating your face as it will burn like hell but this may just be it's reaction to my skin after exfoliating. Overall this is just amazing!
the body scrub is amazing! it got it out defo get this product again!
I LOVE SOAP AND GLORY!!!:-)
Best one ever! got all of my blackheads out!
as im getting into my 30s ive noticed my pores getting bigger and the blackheads creeping into my Tzone. i used to use biore pore strips but the effects have never been long lasting and always leave behind plenty of missed blackheads. so I got The Fab Pore hoping it would be as amazing as the other S&G products ive been trying....and it was! pores have shrunk, blackheads have vanished and my skin feels like heaven. thanks for another great S&G miracle.
I wanted to try a new face mask and as I love alot of the other products from the Soap and Glory range I thought I would give it a go. I have to say I absolutely adore this face mask. I always leave it on for the full fifteen minutes for the deep clean and my skin feels so soft and clean afterwards and I have had no reactions to my skin from using it which is amazing considering I have such sensitive skin. Its just an all round excellent product and well worth the money. I can't wait to try out some more of the skin care range.
(I have just chose a star rating so i was able to submit this)
What works better, this or No Clogs Allowed?
After one use I found myself asking "where have my pores gone?"
It is amazing! I left my skin so smooth and it even lasted till the next morning! It smells gorgeous and the packaging is very nice :) I love it, my skin has never beenso perfect, i don't even need foundation! i will definetly buy it again
Amazing!! MUST TRY!!
I have always had a nose covered in blackheads and never found a product that genuinely works! I left it on for the 15 minutes because i didnt think it would have much of an affect but I was totally amazed at how it left my skin feeling like i had been to the spa!! I was getting everyone to stroke my face afterwards because i really couldnt beleive how well it had worked. I reccommend this to anyone with an oily T zone and blackheads.
i have just used this product for the first time and my skin looks amazing. I have a very oily tzone and i am very prone to spots round my chin and have a gazillion blackheads on myy nose i cant seem to get rid of. I just put this on while in the bath and had a look in the mirror when i came out. I cant see any blackheads on my nose my pores look smaller my skin is soft and feels tingly clean. You really should change your names to soap and miracles
An amazing buy! Been using the product for a while now and I still love it!! Leaves a clean feeling on your face and is a great scrub, not peel! x
I inherrited awfuly large pores from my father. My cheeks and forehead being the worst, the rest of my T-zone being very prone to blackheads, my nose covered in them. I found this product to do exactly what it says on the tin! Visbly smaller pores after the first use, glowing fresh dewy looking skin and it even helps me with hormonal spots I get time to time. It also stoped my nose from beeing a black head breeding ground. I would reccomend this product to every girl who suffers from the dreaed crater face, blackheads and dull skin. Its an amzing product!
I love this product. It would have to be one of my top 5 beauty must haves.
A nice mask although not much of a peel, just wash off. Skin feel clear but a little bit dry so have to use moisturiser afterwards.
I love love love love LOVE this stuff! I got it for my birthday in September and Ive finally chosen to write a reveiw! Okay so I love the smell and it leaves my skin silky smooth. I am now really trying to get the whole collection og S&G!xxxxxxxxx
I wish this stuff had been around in my young years, it's marvellous. Really does minimise pores and left my skin feeling silky soft.
used this for 15 mins, rinsed off and wow, my skin was so soft, my pores were visibly smaller!.
great product, lovely smell and pleasant texture!
used this today and I'm so impressed! i have big pores but luckily my t-zone isn't greasy. But the look of pores when i wear no make up is so annoying.
This is the best product i have ever tried for my pores that actually works, I have been using it for a few days now and my blackheads are reducing in size and clearing up and my pores are definately shrinking, even my sister has pinched some of this off me twice and it has started clearing up her lower face acne and she had huge open pores on her cheeks which have shrunk dramatically. A huge thumbs up S&G for making this product I/We LOVE it :D
This is an absolute must have for me! I use it a few times a week and I am convinced it makes me look younger - the effects last for a couple of day, invisable pores, smoother skin and a more even skin tone. I have used products 10 times more expensive then this that don't deliver even half as much! Please please Soap & Glory, don't ever think of discontinuing this item! I love it!!!
I like this stuff a lot, my skin feels great afterwards but it does hurt a bit while it's on so I don't give it 5 stars. I have problem skin and my pores definitely look smaller since using this
I don't have oily skin so I would not have bought this myself but I use it since I recieved it as a gift so I do not use it all over my face or as often as recomended but it is great to put on problem areas when you break out, my skin clears up faster than it normally would :) I have it on right now
Sorry S&G, I do love your stuff and will be asking for a handful of it for christmas, but not face stuff I guess
Sorry to bring your reviews down cos I LOVE LOVE LOVE your stuff normally, but this just didn't work, burnt when I put it on and left my face red and blotchy. Its a shame because it smells lovely and me and my friend tried it out and it was fine on her. I was sooo disapointed though cos I really did expect my pores to minimise :( £9 down the drain....
Found it hard to believe to start off with as I have never had issues with S&G products before but used it intermitantly to check this is what was causing the break outs and it definitely was. Am going to have to throw it away which is a shame.
Usually love Soap and Glory products but this one reacted really badly with my skin - brought me out in lots of spots and blemishes.
Amazing cleanser. Lasts ages and you can feel your face becoming more tighter. My skin looked brighter after using the product. A great buy
A lovely cleanser that smells amazing like all Soap and Glory products! Helps remove dirt build-up and blackheads and leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean. The Muslin Cloth is great and is easy to wash and re-use again and again.
I must confess to using this everyday. I don't know how it does it but this was how I felt the cleaning miracle that is Soap and Glory. Stubborn waterproof eyemake up is not a problem and never leaves panda eyes on my towels oh and have I mentioned how good my skin looks ? .... ten outa ten with or without the cloth I cannot run out of this stuff... ever :o)
Great product - I have quite an oily complexion and this product left my skin unclogged and fresh and has significantly reduced my pore size! Lasts ages too!
Great product I got for Christmas it is just like a mini facial at home. I would recommend it for people with a dry complexion like mine because it leaves my face glowing!! Yet another great product from Soap and Glory! xoxoxox
I have spot prone combination skin, and this product is nothing short of EXCELLENT! It really does reduce the size of my pores, and it leaves my skin feeling so deliciously clean and smooth.
Love, love, LOVE this! My 40 year old still combination, spot prone skin looks and feels sooo soft and smooth after using this and you only need the smallest amount. Best thing I've bought for YEARS!
Bought this today and rushed home to try it out. I was not disappointed! My skin felt soft and silky and seriously, after the first use, my pores are noticeably reduced. I LOVE it! This is my Mon/Weds/Fri facial - best item I have ever bought for pore refining!
My pores started becoming more visible as I approached 40 and despite trying other top brands I wasn't happy with the results. I'm amazed by how good The Fab Pore Facial Peel actually is. It works wonders. A customer for life!
I LOVE this product, it is one of the best I have ever used. I couldn't beleive that my pores actually looked smaller after just the first use. The smell is great too. I have recommended to all my friends!
Absolutely love the packaging on all the Soap & Glory products, and that's one of the reasons they tempt me more than others... I guess I'm shallow! Either way, I usually end-up disappointed when I make my decisions this way, but in this case I most definitely wasn't. I have huge pores on my cheeks/nose/forehead and this product soothed them completely. It felt lush, and after leaving it for 15 minutes and washing it off my skin felt noticeably smoother and my skin tone more even. This was a 1/3 off at Boots when I got it, but even at full price I'd definitely buy it again!
I'm 19 and unfortunately have very oily skin. I bought this today and straight away I can see and feel the difference in my skin! My skin is virtually oil free and has a very nice glow to it... Pores are noticeably smaller and I'm very happy!! Will definately use this foreveerrrr!
Gorgeous packaging! I love the S&G range and when I bought this I thought that it was a 'facial peel' like the ones that you rub into your skin to dissolve the top layer. I have to say that this is a great face mask as it leaves my face supple, but it isn't really a peel. Is it?
All I can say is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!! After 15 minutes, my skin felt softer, looked more refined and radiant. THANK YOU :-) x x
I love this product! It smells really minty and refreshing, and my pores were smaller after the first use. The packaging (as always with Soap & Glory) was super cute! I can't wait until I can get more Soap & Glory. I am definitely hooked.
Read great reviews about this product and decided to give it a try. It's got lovely texture, minty scent, but what's more important it does exactly what it claims! My pores have never been so small! It left my face very soft and toned.
This product is aboustely Fab just as the label reads. I have tried all sorts of masks from LUSH to Mary Kay to Laura Mercia & more but this by far is one of my fav go to masks. A little bit goes a long way. The results were fabulous as well. I noticed a difference in the texture, pore size was dramatically different. Makes you feel refreshed & smells yummy & tingles on your skin. Must buy for sure!!!
i dont have spots or blackheads but i have massive pores on my cheeks and look disgusting without that foundation and i have been using this everyday when i shower. i put it on before i get in the shower and then rinse it off and my pores have got smaller already in just a few days. Soap & Glory Fab Pore Facial Peel is a LEGEND !!!!
