Why did you choose this?
Kiehl's Since 1851 Store
This is my favorite Kiehls product. I bought it in an airport store (SFO) several years ago based on the enthusiastic endorsement of the representative and have used it daily since then. Simply fabulous. I had small pores before--now they are invisible.

Best Answer: I didn't use them together. Plus, I don't think the dark spot solution worked for me. But lifting serum alone is good .

Hi! I am just wondering how best to use the Precision Lifting serum. It recommends twice daily. I currently use Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate and moisturizer during the day, and Midnight Recovery and Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution rotated for night. Does the Lifting serum go under all those? Rotate them? Any advice is appreciated.
A shopper on Apr 2, 2015
Best Answer: I use the lifting serum only in the morning with their spf cream on top. At night I use that wonderful line reducing cream with midnight oil

Weird question...the pores in my nose are big and so I've always avoided putting any products (except sunscreen) on it. I love Kiehls...will this help with my nose pores?
Amie B on Mar 11, 2015
Best Answer: Product worked well at first, but I noticed that with repeat use it is not as effective. At first skin was firmer, but noticing more of an oily residue as I continue to use. This is my first time trying and I am about halfway through the bottle. Will continue to use until finished, just not sure I would buy again, based on the results to date. Not hugely expensive though if you want to give it a try.

How is it for extremely oily skin? I have the kind that's so oily, I get sweaty, greasy, and clogged if I use even an oil-free moisturizer.
A shopper on Feb 4, 2015
Best Answer: I'm no expert but I think this would be extremely good for oily skin. I have combination skin & it has been great. My skin has not been oily since I started using this product.

Is this product good for very dry skin?
A shopper on Feb 3, 2015
Best Answer: I also have very dry skin. This product feels very light, but emollient and has a nice scent. It is light like a serum, so I use it under my Kiehl's Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream with SPF during the day, and under Super Multi-Corrective Cream at night. The combination provides good moisturizing hydration and firming.

I use the Midnight Recovery concentrate at night. Should the Precision Lifting serum be layered with that product or would it be effective if I just used it in the morning? I also use a Kiehl's moisturizer both morning and night. I don't want to "overload" my skin.
Marty R on Mar 9, 2015
Best Answer: MRC exfoliates while the lifting serum lifts and tightens your skin. I have sensitive skin and I do use them in combination, but I only use the MRC 2-3 times a week. More than that is too much for my skin.

Cathy W on Apr 3, 2016

I have extremely oily skin and all my makeup always just melts down my face even if I'm just sitting at my desk...will this help? If not, what will???
Katie M on Apr 6, 2015
Best Answer: Hi Katie,

Unfortunately, I am not sure if this product will help you with that problem. I have combination skin so in certain areas I know what you mean about makeup melting off. I recently changed my makeup so I cannot tell you with certainty that some of my makeup melting off stopped due to this product or due to my makeup. I started using this and changed my makeup around the same time. I can however tell you that my pores are smaller and I am happy with the product. I will buy it again.

does this replace the high potency skin-firming concentrate which i no longer see on this site?
A shopper on Mar 22, 2015
Best Answer: I never used the product that you mentioned. I have been using this new serum for over a month and have been happy with the results so far. I use the concentrate first, then either the Mid ight Recovery Concentrate ( evening) or Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing concentrate (morning). Along with these products I use a "traditional" moisturizer to finish off my routine. Hope that helps you

A shopper on Mar 29, 2015
Best Answer: I have put other products on before using it. I still feel it works well. Usually I put on the avocado eye cream then the skin tightener and about 2x a week I use their intense wrinkle treatment and then put on the skin tightener.

The Precision Lifting & Pore-Tightening Concentrate is the first step in the recommended regimen for oily skin, but it isn't a cleanser. No cleanser is recommended at all in the regimen. Why would my skin not need a cleanser?
kim e on Dec 29, 2015
Best Answer: I feel like that goes without asking. It really depends on what kind of cleanser you are looking for, whether it just be a normal wash or a targeted concer besides just oily skin.

Not sure whether to buy this or the micro blur. Both are supposed to lesson pores but micro blur is far less expensive. Advice?

Precision Lifting & Pore-Tightening Concentrate
Precision Lifting & Pore-Tightening Concentrate
Micro-Blur Skin Perfector
Micro-Blur Skin Perfector
Best Answer: Micro blur is like a pore filler, like benefit's porefessional...but way better in my opinion. it is a make up primer that can be worn alone or under make up. It says it helps skin over time, but mostly it is to fill the pores to give the a matte and filled in blur appearance. The other is a serum that is supposed to actually help pores get smaller (though most experts say you can't really do much about this other than...) by exfoliation and hydration.

Best Answer: I have fair skin (light Irish complexion) and I'm 49. I use a 30% Vitamin C serum both morning and night, then I put the Precision Lifting & Pore Tightening Concentrate on over. I also use antioxidant facial creams of varying strength. All this just to say I use a very aggressive exfoliating and antioxidant regimen.
