Say No to Open Pores with BFF Skincare & Fragrances

Hey beautifuls, hope you guys had a wonderful weekend. I had been a bit down under the weather last week and had been taking rest. But today I thought of coming back to track and discuss with you about one of the most prominent skincare issues, we face and that's "Open Pores". So no matter what you age , skin type, complexion is you may fall prey to this enemy of our skin.


What are open pores?

Our skin has millions of pores that are not visible to the open eyes. However, the sebaceous gland often secrets excess sebum causing these pores to open up more and appear bigger and visible. That's certainly not a pretty sight.

Causes of Open Pores?

. reduction of collagen production
. loss of elasticity
. excess sebum production
. sun damage
. Medical concerns



BFF Skincare in Dealing with Open Pores

As I have discussed already, open pores can happen to even the driest skin types, so here I was with lot of large pores around my cheeks and nose. I am very particular about my skin care regime and try to follow it religiously, but I found out none of it was working to make the pores appear finer. Then I adapted to a particular regime to address my concern of pores without compromising on my basic issues of basic care for dry skin. BFF Skincare & Fragrances is a brand that has products curated for specific concerns of skin. And that's their speciality. And I started following a regime with:

BFF Skincare & Fragrances Face Scrub: 

The key ingredients of this scrub are coffee and dead sea salt. While coffee has high antioxi:dant properties and makes the skin tighter and brighter, dead sea salt works on the pores by strengthening cell membranes and boosting cell regeneration. I love the fact that it doesn't have any artificial fragrance and smells very much of the bitterness of coffee beans.


Price: Rs. 299 for 50g

A gentle massage with the scrub can actually leave the skin fresh, hydrated and rejuvenated. 

BFF Skincare & Fragrances Pore Minimizing Serum:

This serum is the star of the collection I am using. I pour it on the palm and apply in dots on the areas I have open pores. Then warming up the rest of the product on my palm, I pat it all over the face concentrating on those areas, till it gets absorbed. And it gets absorbed pretty soon. 

Rs. 349 for 50ml

It has Noni berry, a very new ingredient for me that promotes cellular regeneration, and chia seed oil, that is a powerhouse of Omega 3 fatty acid, that is known for healing damaged tissues. This serum can also be used as a pre-makeup base for a smoother and flawless coverage.

BFF Skincare & Fragrances Sensitive Skin Serum:

There are very rare products that are meant for sensitive skin, even if there are some, they are quite expensive. This serum has acai berry that combats free radicals and stop damage to the skin and apricot kernel oil, that has anti-inflammatory properties to moisturize skin gently.

Rs.299 for 50ml

I apply it around the mouth area mostly as that is the most sensitive area of the face after the under eye. It can be used as a soothing moisturizer after threading/waxing/shaving face.

BFF Skincare & Fragrances Anti-Ageing Cream:

Argan Oil from Africa and Ginseng from Asia, 2 most sought after ingredients known for their miraculous anti-ageing properties are the key ingredients of this cream. Its very emollient and light weight texture gets absorbed into the skin fast and gives an illuminated skin that looks softer and plumper.
Rs. 349 for 50g

It bring backs lustre of the skin and makes it look much flawless and youthful.

The regime with BFF Skincare & Fragrance has definitely made my skin feel and look better, by reducing the appearance of pores and making the skin youthful and healthy looking. If you ask to recommend one product that can address the issues of pores, I would definitely pick the Pore Minimizing Serum. It is affordable, cruelty free and works as good as any high-end luxury brand's products that may cost more than triple its amount.
