A Pore Tightener?!

I'm going to zoom through another speedy review today - and the subject of this post will be pores. Now, I used to be absolutely obsessed with mine and, if I'm totally honest, a bit too down on myself about them.

This post by Kirstie on Frillseeker made me cop on a bit. At the end of the day, visible pores aren't the end of the world; they're kind of a totally normal thing, and there isn't much point in fretting or obsessing if yours are prominent.

So, that's not to say that the Precision Lifting & Pore Tightening Concentrate from Kiehl's* is not my jam - I will always be interested in products that claim to improve skin texture. This is a light serum which dries almost matte upon application. The product contains yeast extract to help tighten the skin - Kiehl's recommend applying this twice a day, but I couldn't go without my hydrating serum so have only been using this at night - though it will make a great base for makeup if you are oily like me.

Does it work? Yes - obviously it did not make my pores disappear, but it did even out my skin, help with zits and give a brighter complexion overall.

It's not cheap at €56 but this is for 50ml - most skincare products contain, in my experience, an average of 30ml of product, it's the same for foundations. I am really enjoying this but feel that products containing retinol are that little bit more effective at the same thing so would be more likely to purchase La Roche-Posay Redermic R again once this runs out.



  1. Oh this sounds good but if the La Roche is better? I might just get that x

  2. If I had to pick one, definitely the La Roche Posay. x
