Okay, I’ll admit it; I bought this Witch Piggy Hell Pore Control (yep, that’s it’s real name) simply for the packaging… Then I noticed the name. Then I noticed the ingredients. Standing proudly on the shelves of TK Maxx, amongst a few other items from the brand Elizavecca.
Nope, I’d not heard of it either…
From what I can tell, Elizavecca is a Korean Beauty Brand, that has a pretty strong pig theme throughout. From bubbling face masks, to steam creams, they have a load of quirky products in even quirkier packaging.
After parting with £7.99 and heading straight home to try it, I found that what I thought would be a runny, liquid formula was more of a gel consistency. Which reminded me a lot of the increasingly popular Garnier Moisture Bomb Face Mask formula.
I then went on to investigate some of the ingredients…
The main ingredient in both products is the hydrating wonder, that is known as Hyaluronic Acid. Which I’ve mentioned many times here on the blog. Being the perfect ingredient for dry and dehydrated skin, it’s an amazing addition to your regime if you’re suffering from the inevitable cold-weather complexion.
As well as Hyaluronic Acid, the Witch Piggy Hell Pore Control formula also contains niacinamide. This is a great ingredient if you need a restorative element to your skin. Helping to tone uneven skin and aid enlarged pores, this helps to combat any signs of aging; as well as keeping environmental damage at bay.
So, should you invest in Witch Piggy Hell Pore Control?
Both the Witch Piggy Hell Pore Control and the Garnier face mask contain caster oil as well, which is well known for anti-inflammatory and soothing properties – making both perfect if you’re currently suffering from any angry spots or break outs.
The concentrations within the Witch Piggy Hell Pore Control seem a little higher than the mask, however, both are brilliant if you need a boost of hydration. If you like the mask, then definitely seek this out in your local TK Maxx, as it’s a great addition to your daily skincare regime!
