Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Works!! I got pursued by the sales rep and got this product. He told me if this didn't work, I could return the products even after 30 days (I think). That got me because I really wanted a product that make my pores smaller. Now, not only I got the second one but I also got some other products of this series (the cleansing masque and cleanser). I really can't live without this lotion now. I always put on this after the toner and after this, I put on my cream (Ultra Facial Cream). And that's what I prepare for this summer. This is not really a lotion, in my opinion. My skin is sensitive type and gets dry when the season changes. But it really makes my pores smaller (well, I also do other facial to pull out my blackhead and whiteheads once a week. I use this as my daily treatment to prevent the pores get bigger.) It had the obvious effect right away after I first used it for a week (my pores were really big.that's why I could tell the difference). I really love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shine Stopper! Please, do not change a thing about this product! I have always struggled, especially during warm seasons, with more shine than I would like on my forehead and nose. I hate wearing powder because I don't like wearing a bunch of makeup on my face, so this moisturizer is perfect for me. No shine all day long. I mean, I'm not running marathons or anything...just walking to a lunch spot or something...but still, I'm impressed. I recommend this for anyone with combination to oily skin. I don't think it would be a good fit for dry skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the way my pores look I am a new customer to Kiehl's and for years I have been looking for a product that would reduce the look of my pores and stop my face from being so oily and I have finally found it. This lotion keeps my oil under control and make my pores look sooooooo small giving my face a matte finish without any make up I love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for 1 week I've used this moisturizer for one week and can already see results. I had problems with course appearing skin and large pores recently, I question if it was due to the Facial Fuel lotion. I had some good results with the Rare Earth mask and decided to try this lotion. It has been about a week, I hadn't noticed much improvement and until today and my poor are almost invisible, flat and smooth. I am going to buy every other product in this line!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for HUMIDITY If you live in a humid area with oily skin this product is your best friend. It doesn't last all day but its the best one I've found so far. It prevents oily skin specially in humid conditions. I do not leave the house w/o it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed. Would definetly recommend this product to anyone looking to mimizing their pores. I use it everyday on my nose where my pores tend to be the biggest. Works great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's okay I have extremely oily skin that starts to shine a few hours after applying makeup in the morning. I have used pretty much every oil control product out there. This product performed okay, but not stellar. I still had an oily sheen within 3-4 hours, which is twice as long as any other product, but I thought I may have gotten an all day matte look. It applied very nicely, didn't cause me to break out, which is a bonus. I would recommend it to anyone who has moderate oily skin for control. I still use it, like the fact it still keeps my skin clear and doesn't clog pores. As far as a pore minimizer, I don't find this to be true for me, I saw no difference in my pores or the fact that my makeup still seems to "settle" in the pores. Been using for 2 weeks, will continue using and now that I am on a full Kiehl's program, including micro-dermabrasion, maybe it will get better over time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from goodbye pubescent-looking skin! I have extremely oily skin and have used high-end products that worked at keeping the oil to a minimum. But at $29, this worked way better than they did! I found that my skin no longer looked as oily as it used to. I tried it with Açaí Damage-Repairing Serum during the daytime today, my skin did not look oily at all til late afternoon/early evening. A pump and a half is enough. I'm on my second month with the same bottle, used only at night, and it's only half empty. I'm not sure if my pores are minimized at all, but this did help a lot with my breakouts around my chin area and forehead. I DON'T RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE WITH DRY SKIN. My dad (dry skin) needed moisturizer during our vacation (it was really cold weather), I offered this to him and it was the worst idea ever--his skin got even more dry. Yikes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this moisturizer I have been using this for 4 years now and I love this moisturizer. I have always been afraid of moisturizers because I work outdoors, I sweat a lot, and I have a very oily t-zone anytime I wear anything (even sensitive or gentle products) I always end up breaking out. This moisturizer really works for me. While I'm not sure it minimizes my pores, I do think it is mattifying so they appear less noticeable. It might not work for everyone with oily skin, but it's perfect for me. I use it with the Rare Earth Daily Cleanser and the toner. Please bring it back! I need to get some more and it's been out the last several times I have checked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a Keeper! I bought this to see if I could use it in place of the Micro Blur Skin Perfector. The Micro Blur definitely works but it's really expensive for how much you get. I have normal to dry skin and my only goal was to minimize the pores on my nose and chin. I apply this to those areas and once dry I use my regular moisturizer all over. I'm getting the results I was looking for and it's a great value!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's Okay I have sensitive skin and my T-zone can get a bit oily, so I needed a product that was also moisturizing to control it. This product works for 4.5hours max, then I get oily again. After about 3 weeks of use, I still feel the need to use a moisturizer after this lotion. Since my pores aren't really an issue, I don't see myself purchasing this product again when I've finished the bottle. For someone with normal to oily skin like me, it works fine, but it's nothing great. There must be some other product out there that controls the oil much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best day or night moisturizer! Love how light this moisturizer is. Because of my large pores, my face gets oily; so a lightweight moisturizer like this is a must! It really does minimize the look of my pores, even from the very first time I used it. Rubs in easily and feels great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's Okay.... Minimizing pores? Not so much, but it does help keep my face feeling as oily for a few hours. I like the texture of this product but again, not sure what it is doing other than moisturizing and controlling oil for a little bit. Just ehhhhhh I'm also not the biggest fan of the container.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Skin loves it!!!!!!! First of all, I have combination skin and my main concern are Redness, Big open pore, and shinny forehead. I suffered with after shave problems for many years. Rare Earth Lotion really works on my skin, I am sure a lot of man out there get redness or irritation after shave just like me, this lotion reduce my open pore issue, it does totally clam down my redness issue and mainly mattify my oily forehead also control the oil balance as well. Thanks to Kiehl's.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Goodbye Shine Easily removes excess oil & mattifies oily skin supremely well...it doesn't provide enough moisture for me, but I have used it as a serum under my Powerful Strength and Blue Herbal and it works fine! Good texture, lightweight, and like the whole RE line, the Amazonian clay is a marvel!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from sort of works It very minimally shrinks pores. I have HUGE pores on my nose and it only works a little. It does make my skin feel really silky so I will keep using it. Maybe it will get better over time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rare Earth Pore Minimizing Lotion First i love this mask, my skin is a little bit kind oily skin, and it did mitigate the look of my pores a bit, it didn't mattify at all - it seemed to add weight and moisture to my skin that made it get greasy faster than usual. For those with truly oily skin and large pores.i thought you should try other product
Date published: 2014-11-26
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall a good moisturizer except that it doesn’t control oil at all I find that this specific moisturizer goes into my skin very easily. It is the perfect lotion for oily skin because it does not dry the skin, nor does it make the skin oily . I use this along with the matching earth pore minimizing white clay mask, and the combination of the two is the perfect pair. However, the lotion does not control oil and I usually look greasy a few hours into the day or night after applying. For toner, I use natural witch hazel or an Umbrian clay tonic. My skin is rapidly improving and am very satisfied with his line, though the lotion could be tweaked by adding an oil control component to the formula.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pores really shrink. I have combination/ oily skin. And really large pores. This lotion feels great on my skin. Elimantes the oil and shine and makes my pores look smaller all day (like a movie star under a soft focus lens). I LOVE this product.
Date published: 2012-09-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, but small bottle I have oily to combination skin and this works really well for me. This is the one lotion I can wear it during the daytime without having an oil problem after a few hours. I wish it would be in a larger bottle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Eh I really like the mask that's in this line. It works miracles on my face, however this does not. It only helps the shine for a few hours and then my face looks like a disco ball. Kinda let down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from took me till i was 45... It took a long time but I have finally found the face product of my dreams. My pores are smaller, my skin is smoother and the texture is amazing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nothing Special I am hooked on the Rare Earth Pore Minimizing facial cleanser and toner. Unfortunately, I can not recommend the lotion to do what it is advertised to do. I find that if I apply this lotion in the morning, my skin starts to shine very quickly. I only apply it at night now. Invest in the cleanser and toner for best results.
Date published: 2016-04-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Minimizes! I have large, visible pores on my nose. I have tried many different products to either get rid of them or hide them. Nothing has ever worked...until this. I noticed a visible difference after the second application. I could not be happier with this purchase!
Date published: 2012-09-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rare Earth Pore Minimizing Lotion As with the cleanser, this lotion really does minimize pores! As one may expect, they are extra effective when used together! I love how non existent my pores look! I have normal skin, but my nose gets clogged with pores, truth be told. When I use this lotion along with the cleanser, they're the ultimate duo! Along with minimizing pores, this lotion also leaves my skin smooth and refreshed!
Date published: 2012-09-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite moisturizer ever! This is the best I've found on the market. I've used up so many bottles of it... Love, love, love! My skin is combination. It gives me enough moisture and leave my skin matte for a long time but not dry. love the texture and no artificial odor.
Date published: 2015-12-31
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Underwhelmed I have extremely dry skin that can be flaky especially in my nose creases, forehead and chin areas. My pores are not super large but noticeable; therefore I wanted to take a chance with the Rare Earth product line. The face wash exfoliates so I am hesitant to use it daily but I do like it and the toner is amazing but this lotion does nothing for my skin. At application my face sucks it in and I feel dry and tight. I have to pair it with another moisturizer (Deep Moisturizing Clarifying Cream or Creme d'Elegance (my fav so far)). I may try it in the summer to see if it is less drying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!! Highly recommend for oily skin types This stuff is amazing!! I have such oily skin and live in a humid area so face shine has always been a problem for me. I wash with the Kiehl's mens facial fuel energizing wash, I omit toner (makes me break out), and I use only a pump or two of this. It is absolutely amazing! Dries in no time and keeps my face matte all day, even under heavy makeup. The bottle is small but lasts a long time since you don't need very much per use. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! really does minimize pores. skin is left looking airbrushed and smooth. oil production is drastically reduced. feels like i have new skin. no harsh smell either. love this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing yes,I have to say this product is amazing , my pores became smaller and I use this with white clay masque. This is the thing I want after I search for many years for my big big big pore on my nose...
