Battle of the Brands | Drugstore "Skin Perfectors"

Anyone else been bowled over by all of the drugstore "skin perfectors" coming out lately? If anyone is wondering, they are just primers. Don't be confused by the "pore vanisher" or "skin blur" or "smoother" titles...they're primers with great marketing campaigns. Anyhoo, I thought it might be cool to compare, side by side 2 of them that I had been wanting to try lately. The reason I chose the L'Oreal Paris Youth Code Pore Vanisher and the Garnier 5 Second Blur is because I am a HUGE fan of anything L'Oreal Paris puts out. They are my preferred drugstore line plain and simple. I chose the Garnier because I have just been so darn pleased with their BB cream (as you can read about here) and thought "hey maybe they'll be 2 for 2!"


I have to admit, I went into this comparison biased, thinking I would choose the L'Oreal Paris Pore Vanisher over the Garnier, but after trying them both, the race was a CLOSE one and I was very surprised with which one I liked better. Here's what I discovered:


So after ALL that said, I ended up preferring the Garnier 5 Sec Blur over the L'Oreal Paris Youth Code Pore Vanisher. Who woulda thunk it?! I just love when I'm caught off guard and surprised by different products! Check them out below if you're interested! I believe the current issue of SELF magazine has a sample of each primer along with a $2 off coupon for each product.

  1. I love all the new drugstore primers! I feel like for the longest time there just wasn't any good ones at the drugstore! I haven't tried either of these but I will definitely the 5 Sec Blur next time! xx Rena Kiss and Make Up

    1. Isn't that funny? I totally thought I was going to choose the L'Oreal one (as I always favor that brand over others). Garnier has really stepped up their complexion products game! Glad it was helpful! Xo!
