You know that I am not comfortable with my pores and that I tried tons and tons of products to reduce them or hide them. Sometimes I have the impress that some products works a few and sometimes it is just like I was doing nothing at all. What’s about the Kiehl’s Precision lifting and pore-tightening concentrate ?
First of all, let’s see what’s the brand telling about the product and the ingredients list:
Featuring the power of highly refined Micro-filtered Yeast Extract plus Geranium Essential Oil, this clinically demonstrated formula significantly improves the look of facial skin’s overall “bounce-back” quality and definition, while visibly reducing the size and appearance of enlarged pores.
Water, Butylene Glycol, Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane. Methyl Gluceth-20, PEG-20, Squalane, Dimethicone, Alcohol Denat., Octyldodecanol, Cyclohexasiloxane, Lauroyl Lysine, Carbomer, Phenoxyethanol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Pentylene Glycol, Caprylyl Glycol, Polysilicone-11, Yeast Extract, Xanthan Gum, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylates Crosspolymer, PVP, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Adenosine, Capryloyl Salicylic Acid, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Hydroxide, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Protein, Citronellol, Geraniol, Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Oil/Rosemary Leaf Oil, Citral, Limonene, Fmla.
I’ve been using these product for months now (I even stop it for a while and restart it to see the difference) and I’m quite mixed about my feelings…
I love the packaging : the bottle is very hygienic and the pump delivers the right amount of product. The texture is very light, it is a white oil-free kind of lotion/gel and the scent is absolutely amazing. I love when the products I use have a nice scent and this one is definitely lovely : a very herbal relaxing fragrance.
Now about the effects… I feel a tightening effect on my skin nearly every time I apply the serum, a small contraction that is noticeable. So yes, this product offers a small lifting effect for sure. However, I did not see any improvement about my pores. They are still large as they were on the beginning of my test… I was waiting for something great to reduce them, and finally, unfortunately, nothing happened…
So I’m a little bit disappointed about the poor effects on my pores but in the other hand, I really do like the firming effect on my skin and the scent of the product. I’m gonna tell that this product is on the average for its efficacy : lifting yes/ pore reducing no
