SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Poremizing Fresh Ampoule Review

This post contains affiliate links. Product provided by Stylevana.

Pores… I’m fairly certain none of us want them, yet all of us have them and need them. And sure, there’s no way to make them smaller, but there are many different things we can do to cause them to appear smaller. Does it really matter if they are actually smaller as long as they look smaller? Not to me.

SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Poremizing Fresh Ampoule is designed for oily skin with enlarged pores. It is made with himalayan pink salt to help with excess sebum. It also features peptides and centella asiatica to promote well-aging and soothe. The ampoule is available on Amazon, YesStyle (reward code KBHOBBIT), Stylevana (code INF10KBH), and StyleKorean.

How to use

  • Apply after cleansing and toning

  • Gently pat in

  • Follow with the rest of your routine

I use SKIN1004 Poremizing Ampoule in the evenings. It has a light, watery texture and no noticeable scent.

My impressions

I have combination skin with an oily t-zone. The pores on the nose and cheeks right next to the nose could most definitely look smaller. I used to be very into skin picking and squeezing whatever I could out of the skin, but sebaceous filaments always come back. Plus, a passionate popping session would often leave me red and sore, and over time that can cause scars or an infection (or both). I now know that squeezing and popping is a road to nowhere - sebaceous filaments are a normal, healthy part of skin’s functioning. That doesn’t mean I can’t try other things to improve the look of those areas.

I’ve been using SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Poremizing Fresh Ampoule for several months now. I don’t apply it daily, but it’s a regular part of my rotation. I am noticing less sebum overall and less noticeable sebaceous filaments in the t-zone. Reading about himalayan salt in the ingredients gave me pause - I wasn’t sure if this product would sting or irritate the skin. It doesn’t. I would have never expected salt in the formula if I hadn’t read about it in the marketing materials.

I can’t help but think back to the mid 2000s when I was in high school - all the “oil control” products were so harsh. They hurt, they stung, and they caused excessive dryness. SKIN1004 does none of those things. I enjoy using it. Because my skin isn’t oily all over, I often layer this ampoule with thicker, more nourishing ones at night. I would have no issues using it in the morning as well, because it leaves no residue on the skin. But my morning routine is very basic and short - I spend more time and effort on the skin at night.

This is a great product for oily and combination skin types. It helps with excess oil without destroying the skin in the process the way some “oil control” products of my teenage years did. And I see a very noticeable result. The generous 100ml / 3.38oz bottle means I can use this for a long time before running out - it’s a good value for the money. It’s definitely worth a try if smaller looking pores are your goal.
