Pore Indicator Test

What’s my pore size?

USP Solutions’ Pore Indicator Test is a test which appeals to your consumer’s senses – enabling them to learn about their skin structure.

USP Solutions’ reliable and easy-to-use Pore Indicator Test detects the size of the facial skin pores. The pore indicator reacts to sebum on facial skin. The larger the pores, the larger the dark spots on the tester’s result area.

Consumers can compare their individual test results to the result fields on the back and learn about their skin structure. The Pore Indicator Test is often used by beauty brands to prove their product’s pore minimizing effect (before and after test).

When consumers learn about their pore size and the effectiveness of your pore-minimizing product, they experience an “A-ha” moment. This emotional experience is also referred to as “Beauty Moment of Truth”. The Pore Indicator Test therefore creates an engaging consumer experience, proving your product claim.
