This remarkable technology yields an utterly sheer, featherweight product that diffuses the look of pores, minimizes fine lines, and helps protect your makeup so it lasts from morning to night.

It comes with a unique buffed-edge Japanese sponge.

Not tested on animals.

 

Tap, tap, tap; then pat, pat, pat for a smooth, shine-free, soft-focus finish! Tap the sponge onto the product. Never swipe or rub. Pat this innovative, sheer formula gently all over your face. Never swipe or rub. Use the rounded corners of the sponge to get into all those hard to reach places, such as side of nose and inner corners of your eyes.

It really works!!!

By Kell

from Louisiana

Comments about Mally Beauty Poreless Face Defender:

I bought this half off during the 21 days of beauty to give it a go. I'm 40, and I've noticed in the past couple of years that powders (even my fave high end ones) can make me look a bit more aged at times. This poreless face defender does for me what I need powders to do and more! It "blots" my Tzone and makes my face look smooth and ready to go and locks in my makeup for the day. I'm combination skin and only get a little oil in my Tzone-so that's where I target it. Mally-you've changed the game for me! I don't even use setting sprays anymore.

    Comments about Mally Beauty Poreless Face Defender:

    I have a very oily skin and this product works wonders for me. it took me a couple of days to get used to it but in less than a week I definitely noticed the difference. Throughout an entire day I only have to powder my face maybe one time.I hate if I forget to use this. Plus this product is a great investment it will definitely last a long time. Definitely recommend and will be purchasing again.

      Just what I needed to finish my makeup routine. I'm 72 but still want to look pretty and modern, this product blurs the wrinkle lines, smooths my skin and just gives a pretty, finished look and still looks natural. I'm very pleased with the results.

        Love, Love, Love. As long as you understand the application of this product, I don't see how anyone could have a problem with it. I have found that I need to wash sponge every other day or so to keep application smooth. This instantly smooths my fine lines AND my pores. Definately a must have product!

        Worth a try

        By Megan

        from WA

        Comments about Mally Beauty Poreless Face Defender:

        Bought this on a whim when it was 50% off and have been using it for a couple days now. I'm still deciding if it will be worth it to buy at full price but so far I do like it. I took another reviewer's advice and applied after letting setting spray dry. It is weird to apply and kinda hard to tell if I'm actually getting enough product on. I have not noticed it making a difference in how my pores appear however I do think it is keeping my face matte for longer into the day so that's a win for someone with very oily skin like me! Also does seem to help my makeup appear fresher at the end of the day

        Good Product but Broke Me Out

        By Jill

        from MN

        Comments about Mally Beauty Poreless Face Defender:

        At first I really enjoyed this product. It set my makeup and blurred my pores without the powdery look. It didn't lift my foundation like others complained about. It didn't keep me matte longer than powder though. And it was annoying to carry around a sponge that was larger than the compact. I would have dealt with all these things because the finish is beautiful but it broke me out. After a couple uses I had 2 cystic pimples, which I never get, and a bunch of tiny clogged pores in my t-zone.

                You can wear this as a primer. However, be sure to test this out with your favorite foundation. Different formulas can vary in how they apply and wear over the Face Defender. xox

            • Q:

              I see that someone already asked about losing the sponge it came with and a brush was suggested....my question is can a different sponge be used if the included one is damaged or lost?? (a beauty blender or a regular makeup applicator sponge?)
              thanks :-)

            • Q:

              I am 55 yrs old so I try to use very little makeup to minimize look of lines, wrinkles etc. My skin is also very dry. Is ithere a drying product. I can't wear regular powder in a compact because it's drying regardless of the quality of the compact. It seems to just dry out my skin and get into my lines and make them more pronounced. How does this product work for someone my age with dry skin, minimum wrinkles that I want to hide not accentuate. I wear a lot of moisturizers la mer and strivectin and just use tinted moisturizer with Xtra tint under my eyes. Would you suggest this or something different for a quick, natural coverage that will last most of the day. Any suggestions would be great. Thx, Robyn

              I feel like it is dried out and I can't see it on my sponge, am I not supposed to see it on my sponge. I can't tell if it is on my face or not. I purchased it as a set with eye makeup and my mascara was thick and globby

            • Q:

              Can you use this over mineral makeup? I use compact Glo Minerals with a primer. Would the Mally produce sub for primer or just go over the powder base? I use a setting spray because I have dry skin and it makes the mineral powder less powdery looking. Not use that spray?

                Absolutely, you can use Face Defender with powder and liquid/cream formulas of foundation, and yes, Face Defender can replace your setting spray, as it provides the same mattifying and makeup-setting benefits.
