[baviphat] Magic Pore Cover Balm

A few month ago I reviewed the Dr.OIL SOLUTION Anti-Shine Dual Primer from [ETUDE HOUSE] but I couldn't write a good review about the included pore cover balm because I already finished it at that time. I liked this balm and so I decided to get another, similar one right after I finished it: the Magic Pore Cover Balm by [baviphat]. 
This balm isn't new - my one was manufactured in 2010 already. Have to try to use it up within this year as well. I got so much stuff to finish because it will expire soon....

Description: Pore Cover Balm that makes silky and smooth skin texture.
Silky and soft Silicon Polymer Ingredient covers ores and fine wrinkles and helps to maintain clean makeup condition by controlling excessive sebum.
The Magic Pore Cover Balm is inside a - rather small - white/ light blue container which looks like a capsicum/ paprika. It contains 25g of this balm! I didn't keep the box/ packaging the container came in, though.
Like many other products this one got a white cover underneath the lid for extra 'protection'.
As the product name says already, the consistency is thick: a balm. You need to take out the white balm with your finger and apply it to your skin. Then spread it over your face where you got enlarged pores and fine wrinkles.
It workes quite well on me! It covers my smaller pores without problems but those enlarged ones are still visible. They are less visible than before, though! The Pore Cover Balm also makes my skin more sleek and matte. The scent is citrus-like!
Even though the product is rather small and contains just 25g I think it might last for a longer time. Of course only when you use it on areas with enlarged pores like cheeks/ nose and not on your whole face everyday.

How to use: Apply suitable amount onto face evenly and thinly before using BB Cream/ Foundation.

Price: around 9,- €/ US$11 
Bought at: eBay (BELLOGIRL) 

What I love: 
It covers most of my pores quite well. My skin is more sleek and matte, too.

What I don’t like: 
That I have to take out the balm with my fingers. 

Will I buy this again? I would but I don't know if it's still sold in Korea.
