Fast forward to spring time when the light starts to show what winter has been hiding, complexion wise, and these two newbies from Lancome will be very welcome, I think. Lancome Pore Eraser and Hydra Glow partner up with La Base Pro, an existing primer (and best seller).
Of the two, Lancome Pore Eraser has the more dramatic effect – it’s a light-feeling, oil-free pore blur cream that worked really well on my skin, especially across the nose. Initially, it’s like every other pore blur with that silicone feel, but I think it’s lighter than most and has better staying power than others I’ve tried. Within moments, I couldn’t feel it was there at all but it still did all the blur and anti-shine action.
Hydra Glow I found more difficult to see any real result – it’s a lovely primer that glides beautifully onto the skin, making it feel hydrated and soft instantly, but I’m not sure it’s really providing any glow. I’m hesitating because winter light isn’t the best to really see what’s going on but I’ve looked and looked and can’t see anything much of the promised white pearl pigments for luminosity. I often think that these perfecting products only really work on skin that’s pretty much perfect already.

So, while I’d highly recommend the Lancome Pore Eraser, I’d be less enthusiastic about the Hydra Glow. Lancome Pore Eraser is a handy size for on the go touch ups and you can easily use it over make up.
Both of these launch next February – Lancome Pore Eraser is £24 and Lancome Hydra Glow is £28.50.
