Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the product - not the price I have trouble finding this favorite product of mine anywhere they carry Kiehl's (we lost our free-standing store, probably because Nordstrom opened around the same time next door and carried it). I love how fresh and smooth it makes my skin feel before putting on makeup, or first thing in the morning. Love the smell and texture - do not like the price. As a skin care junkie, I have no trouble paying for products I use daily, or special treatments. However, for the ingredients listed, and it's limited use, I will never understand the price. Please adjust that and I will always have this on hand. Right now, it's hard to justify.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wanted to Love this product! I am a loyal Kiehl's customer and LOVE most Kiehl's products. My skin is normal to dry especially in the harsh midwest winters. I was excited when I received a sample to try. I loved the texture of the serum, but even after using my Super Multi-Corrective Cream, it made my skin feel too dry and tight..Hence the "pore tightening" property. I will definately try it again during the summer months when my skin is not as dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IT REALLY WORKS! My holy grail product!!! I recently was very impressed with a sample of the skin rescuer during a trip to the airport, so I tried a sample of this and OMG it's a miracle lol. I had NO expectatins for this because I've literally tried everything to reduce my pore size, even aesthetic lasers, and nothing I've tried works. I have the world's largest pores! I noticed a dramatic difference after 2 days. The downside is I have to use it consistently or it will return back to the normal size. But it's still better than anything else out there! It's a miracle. It also makes makeup application WAY smoother. Please NEVER stop making this Kiehls! THANK YOU- LIFE CHANGING. TRY IT!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS PRODUCT This product has helped reduce the size of my pores. My pores aren't as visible as others but it was still an issue for me. I have oily skin and I thought I was just going to live with huge pores my whole life. After using it for a couple of times I seen a huge difference in my pore size. My friends and boyfriend has noticed and I couldn't be any happier.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good serum, just not for pore tightening Purchased in January, and applied am & pm daily since (4 months now) nearly finished w/ my bottle and have yet to see any improvement in pore size. I do exfoliate regularly and for the last 8 weeks haven't even worn makeup due to working from home. I like the gel format and scent, it absorbs quickly and is not oily. However the pump is poor quality resulting in a bit of the serum drying in the pump and creates a small clog. It gets expunged the next day in the form of a small hard dry lump. Given the pricing, it seems wasteful to loose that dry bit of serum every day when there are plenty of other pumps on the market that do not do that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It doesn't work I bought this based on the reviews and it simply doesn't work. I followed the directions and I've been using it diligently for the last 2 months and I'm simply not seeing any different, not even the tiniest bit. I was skeptical to begin with but after reading so many reviews of people seeing reduction in pore sizes, I figured, why not? Well, I should've stuck to my gut feeling because it just doesn't work. Don't waste your time or money. I'm going to keep using my Smashbox primer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for me.. I can't say this has helped with my pore size what so ever, but I do notice a slight lifting effect from this. The geranium scent is beautiful and I think that is really the only reason I use this serum. I personally probably wont be buying this again as I feel there is better options, but it's a decent choice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effective, but Expensive I must first say that I do not have a problem with pore size. If I ever feel that my pores could use a little attention, I'll usually just use a Biore strip and Kiehl's Rare Earth Masque: it always does the trick. I must also say that my face doesn't necessarily need lifting. I am 30 and don't really have any concerns in that area; I also don't have any wrinkles. However, being the Kiehl's devotee that I am, I had to try this. I can't say exactly what it does, but it does make my face look good. It has zero effect on my pores, but I suppose it does make me look more lifted. I generally use the Hydro-Plumping serum underneath the Powerful Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate, but I sometimes swap this in instead of the Plumping Serum just to change things up. The results are good, but not necessarily worth the hefty price tag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Precious pore tighten I got this sample product. I has bid pores around my nose and chin After my sample gone ( I used around q month) now I purchase this product. My skin is smooth and brighter. My co worker said I look younger. I Love this product

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pores Be Gone? I'm still waiting for my pores to 'disappear' (though, realistically, I know this will never happen. An evil fairy cursed me at birth with ridiculously large pores). I've tried this for 4 days now, in conjunction with 2 other recommended products. I haven't seen anything tighten up, but I'm willing to give it some more time. Seems a little pricey for the size of the bottle, but if it works, I'll be impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mona Lisa Has nothing on me! I love the Kiehl's. When I was a young man and would visit the store, Jamie and Klaus would shower me with gifts of the Mango bath and shower gel and unusually rich, but not greasy at all hand creams. No hyperbole here! This product works and my skin is flawless, smooth and pore free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and effective product I recently purchased this product and I am stunned by the quick results I received. I am 27, but I do have lines on my neck that have completely disappeared after a very short time using this product. It makes my skin feel fresh, bouncy, and glowy. It makes me feel more confident wearing less makeup. I don't have an issue with pores, so I can't speak to that claim. A little bit goes a long way, so I recommend the tiny tube for anyone who wants to give this a go. A lovely addition to my nighttime routine, extremely impressive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It Love the product on my second bottle. FYI don’t throw the bottle out when the pump Stops working. Turn the bottle on it’s side, take the top off & use the rest by tapping in your hand. My skin has never looked better

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It didn't tighten my pores Pro: the texture is great. The scent is good not too overpowering. It is not oily at all. I can feel my skin getting slightly lifted. Cons: I've been using it for over a month now. My skin started to break out and didn't see my pores getting tighter or smaller, which was the main reason I got this product. Improvement: The pump gets clogged the next day and considering how much you pay for it, it felt like I was wasting a lot of my precious serum.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't work for my pores In the last year or so, my pores have gone from invisible to very noticeable. When I saw this product, I was hoping it would be the magical solution I was looking for. It feels great and smells great, but unfortunately, it did nothing for my pores. After I finished the bottle, I had decided to switch to a lactic acid/retinol routine, which immediately worked wonders for my pores. I adore Kiehl's products, but this one just didn't work for me!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from don't see any diference I've read a lot of good things about this brand and I was really excited to try this. I've been using this product for over four months with the amazonian clay mask, hoping that this will get rid of my pores problem and honestly my pores look completely the same, for the high price of this i was really expecting a lot from this brand and now i am very disappointed. Don't waste your money. in the other hand the cannabis oil is great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent purchase Works wells to smooth my skin, feels tighter, and I notice pores look smaller. It makes my foundation look a lot smoother, too. It's one of those nice products that I treat myself to once in a while, but I could live without it. It doesn't have to be a part of my daily beauty routine, but it's a nice perk. That said, I don't think it's worth what you pay for it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Unhappy. I purchased this product at a retail store in Austin and was so excited about it. It smelled WONDERFUL and I figured with the cost, it must work right?! WRONG! I’ve used it so many different ways. I’ve tried twice a day like the packaging said and it made my skin so oily and with giant ugly clogged pores with texturized skin. THEN I figured, maybe my skin doesn’t like that much attention, so I tried it only at night for a while, STILL no difference. Now my pores are larger than ever and I’m trying to figure out how to get them back to their originally large (but smaller than they are now) pores. I do my daily routine of cleanse tone and moisturize with a weekly mask so it’s not that my skin is unclean that’s for sure. Plus, i have oily skin and the reps told me this was designed for people with oily skin. They mention some 30 day guarantee, but you are supposed to wait 45 days before you see results supposedly?! Unfortunately I’m not impressed with their representatives OR their products.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't see any improvement I had purchased the product last year and been using it for a period of time. I was looking forward and hope that the product will help me to minimize my pore. unfortunately, I can't see any difference after using the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from averygreenleaf I love this product! It smells wonderful, and feels great. It tightens and lifts my skin, while giving it a lovely glow. My neck was beginning to sag; this product has tightened up my neck skin, it looks years younger.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Ipressed I have a combination skin and big pore on my cheeks. this products did nothing for me and I am using it for a month nothin is changed. It was literally a waste of money, specially for how much money you pay for this.
