It’s hard to nhận xét a serum that doesn’t work for everyone, especially when you think it might have worked for you but even though you’re 1/3 through the serum, you’re still not 100% sure.

That’s how I feel with Kiehls’ Precision Lifting and Pore Tightening Concentrate.

I’ve sầu been using this for 6 weeks now & I reckon it’s time to lớn mô tả what I thought about it with you. I’m still a bit on the fence about it but read on & let me know what you think.

Description: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 và definition, while visibly reducing the size and appearance of enlarged pores.

Now before I go on, we must be clear on one thing: despite what the beauty “experts” và product descriptions are telling you, pores cannot open nor close. Pores contain a hair follicle & sebaceous gland & serve as a portal for sebum, our skin’s natural oil. Dirt, oil và dead skin cells can often build up and make our pores appear larger. If a pore becomes clogged, it will temporarily stretch & look bigger. But here’s the thing: pores don’t have sầu muscles around the opening khổng lồ make them open and cthua thảm. You cannot steam your pores open nor can you cthua them by splashing cold water on your skin.

So when Kiehl’s says that this will tighten pores, it’s pretty misleading because technically, this cannot happen. However, they also said that this will tighten and lift facial skin … now that I can somewhat believe sầu because I can actually feel my skin tighten when I use this. In terms of actually seeing my skin lift, probably not; the amount of “lifting” from the tightening of skin isn’t so great that I can actually see a difference in a mirror right there và then.

Anyway, let’s talk about the serum. It’s a light, oil-không tính phí lotion that absorbs quickly onlớn the skin. It smells lovely; if you’re a bạn of the calming scent of lavender, methinks you’ll lượt thích this.

When I say that the serum actually tightens skin, it’s not the sort of dry tightening that I’d feel with a drying foaming cleanser. My skin doesn’t feel dry at all when I apply this serum. I can feel a very slight contraction of my skin when I apply this. Sometimes it’s noticeable, other times it’s not.

I’ve been using this as my day serum for 6 weeks và I can see a bit of difference on my skin. It feels firmer, especially on the jawline and the lines under my eyes have sầu softened somewhat. I can feel a difference in my skin’s elastiđô thị and that it has certainly improved. The problem is, I can’t tell for sure if that is due khổng lồ the retinol và AHA serums I use in the evenings. But if you ask me if I feel any sort of “lifting” of the skin, I’d say yes because I bởi feel my skin contracting ever so slightly whenever I use this serum.

However, if you asked me if there’s any reduction in the kích thước of my pores, I’d say no. I didn’t see any difference. I have sầu large pores on my nose và they still look pretty darn big lớn me even with after using this serum.

As you can tell, the jury’s still out on this one. I’m still using it because it feels good on my skin & it smells really nice. Time will tell after I’m completely done with this serum. For now, it does work in the so-called lifting with skin contraction và my skin’s elastithành phố has improved. Again, I don’t know if it’s the work of this one serum or a combination of what I’ve been using. It’s sort of hard lớn tell when you’re using 3 serums, y’know?
