Let's talk about pesky pores, shall we? While mine are not a severe issue for me, they do figure prominently when I'm slathered in my favorite pearly highlighter or a really hydrating moisturizer. Having a decent skincare product, such as, the new StriVectin Advanced Pore Refiner, which may actually diminish the size of unsightly pores is an advantage, especially since no product can physically alter the size of large pores. So, shrinking and reducing them are the next best thing! Stay Beautiful! XOXO
Reduce appearance of enlarged pores and refine texture for a smooth, even complexion. New Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner is a lightweight daily pore-minimizing lotion/anti aging moisturizer with Retinol that delivers both instant and long-term visible pore reduction. 96% of subjects had an immediate improvement in visible pore size after a single application. Patented NIA-114™ technology nourishes the moisture barrier to provide visible age fighting efficacy as it limits the sensitivity common to Retinol use. The powerfully effective blend purifies/refines both skin tone and texture, while delivering superior age fighting benefits.*Based on technician evaluation after 8 weeks of use.
Formula: Firstly, the formula is a milky, rapid absorbing lotion that does not irritate or burn. I have only been using this ritualistically for two weeks straight -- morning and night -- and the brand states that maximum results are shown after eight weeks. However, I did experience some lovely results so far. As I mentioned earlier, my pores are not that bad but highlighter makes them pop out more. Pore Refiner has reduced the appearance of my pores significantly and instantly. I can tell from a particular larger pore around the side of my nose has become visibly reduced. The pores on my cheeks also appear smaller but still visible. The serum makes my skin feel smoother and seems to work as a primer. What I love about this product is that I can apply it under my facial oil and foundation and there is no pilling! I have to mention that it is really drying to dry skin (my skin type is very dry right now) but I counteract this issue with a fancy new facial oil product that I recently discovered. All in all, I am pleased with the product's formula and it seems to be working. I still have a lot of it left in the tube so I'm hoping for even more results in the following weeks. Since the formula is so silky, only a minimal amount is needed on your entire face which ensures you will receive over a month's (or longer) use.
