Etude House Goodbye Pore Ever Primer Review

Etude House's Goodbye Pore Ever 'Pore Primer Essence'

Just thought I would do a quick review on one of my favourite primers this summer. This primer has been fantastic in keeping my oily skin away during the long, hot days.

This is actually the first Etude House product I've used, aside from a nail file but that doesn't count, and I'm pretty impressed. There's definitely a lot more too them than there cutesy packaging, that's just a bonus. What I love about this primer is it doesn't give a greasy, silicon feeling to the skin like other primers I've tried (smashbox photoready, I'm looking at you). It feels nice on the skin, it mattifies nicely without being too drying, and it feels quite smooth and soft. I've heard it's also supposed to help minimize enlarged pores. I personally haven't noticed anything like that and it doesn't bother me. If it keeps the oil away my pores won't get any bigger, right? Without a doubt my BB creams and foundations look a lot smoother with this primer. I personally love using this with my BB creams, because most of them are quite moisturising, this primer makes them last longer through the day. It's also very affordable. I paid $15 for this on Yesstyle (on sale), a hefty difference when I compare it to the western primers I've bought, but I've seen it even cheaper on other Korean skincare sites.

The only con is the tiny bottle, which is the size of an eye primer. It seems to go really fast, but has still lasted the season. I probably won't have much use for it after summer, and I hate it when I have to wait another year (usually past the expiry date) to use a product. So I guess that means less clutter in my makeup drawer, which is something I really need to cut down on this year!


  1. Wow, you need to delve deeper into Etude House products. There are so many good ones. That said, I haven't tried this pore primer yet.

    1. I really do! I already have a long list of products I want to try :)

  2. Sounds like a great primer!
