Teeth get sealed. Tiles get sealed. Plastic bags get sealed, even lips at times … but pores? Yiup, them too, if Murad has anything to do with it.

The Murad Pore Reform line has just launched stateside (Irish launch date TBC) and it’s based on the premise that the products not only clean the gunk out of your pores, but they form a barrier within them, helping to prevent new gudge from forming.

How’s that happen then, science boffins? Well, aha, it’s all down to something called Oxidation Reversal Complex, “an innovative, proprietary technology that helps reverse and prevent sebum oxidation,” and it is clinically proven to reduce the formation of blackheads by an average of 58%.

There you go now. Products include a Cleansing Foam, T-Zone Pore Refining Serum, Blackhead and Pore Clearing Duo plus a Balancing Moisturiser with SPF 15.

So, knowing the trouble the windows to our noses cause us, is this something you’d go for when it launches here? Do drop me a comment below and we’ll get some skin-scussion on.
