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 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.

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 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 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 5 out of 5 by from It works I think I finally found a pore minimizer. It feels good on my dry skin, rubs on easily

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 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 4 out of 5 by from Think Soft Focus After about a month using sample packets and the purchased product, I truthfully cannot attest to the serum's ability to reduce my pore size. However, I can say that my skin looks much better. My skin looks hydrated and healthy. I think my pores are the same size as before. I just don't notice them as much since I am busy admiring my softly glowing skin. I would recommend this product as a part of a general skin care routine but not necessarily for pore-tightening.

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 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 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 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 Amazing I love, love this product. I have had large pores, oily skin my whole life. At 53 my skin has never looked better. I have been using this product since it was released. Not only is my skin firm and radiant, it has kept the deep wrinkles at my eyebrows from progressing; I actually feel strongly they have minimized. I deeply hope Kiehls makes this forever.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The name should be re-assessed This is certainly a mixed review, for me. The Precision Lifting and Pore-Tightening Concentrate is an interesting serum; I noticed one of the two titular effects that I was expecting. I found the product to be effective at tightening and lifting my skin, which is nice, but I am only 25 and don't find much need for tightening my skin. The reason that I purchased this product was to take advantage of the pore tightening and reducing effects. I did not ever really experience this effect, sadly. So while I would recommend this product to someone hoping to lift and tighten their skin, I would not steer them here if they were looking for a serum to reduce their pores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have! I'm 50 years old with large pores being one of my biggest issues, and am floored at the number of comments I've received since starting to use this product about a month ago about how 'young' I look! The appearance of my skin has improved dramatically -- and I've only been using it ONCE a day (instead of twice, as directed). Worth every penny! This will definitely be a permanent part of my daily regimen.

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 Love this! Received a sample of this (thank you Kiehl's) it. Have been using it for about 6 weeks ... someone at work complimented me on my makeup, the makeup has not changed. I do feel like my skin looks better. I use it in conjunction with my regular Kiehl's moisturizer and under the Midnight oil at night. Some may think this is expensive but it is not you don't need that much each application. My generous sample is still pumping after all this time. !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Texture and Scent I have used this product for the past month. I love the light texture and the fresh scent. I have used it under my Wrinkle Reducing Cream with SPF during the day and under Super Multi-Corrective Cream at night. My skin feels firmer and well hydrated when using it together with moisturizing cream. My skin is very dry, and this product would not be hydrating enough using it alone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GAME CHANGER. Nothing else compares! I received a deluxe sample of this stuff and have been using it for several weeks now, and seriously, I don't know how I've managed without this concentrate in my life until now! The tone of my skin has definitely improved. It feels more uplifted without feeling tight, and my pores have visibly shrunken. The texture is great and applies so smoothly underneath moisturizers and makeup. And the scent is GORGEOUS. I love that it's not very greasy feeling since I tend to have oily skin. If you have dry skin, you'll definitely need a moisturizer over this, but I love it by itself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product I received a sample, and have used it for a month. Recently i have had several people comment on how beautiful my skin is!! Never had that happen before.My daughter says she noticed that my skin looks better than ever before--this was not solicited! Following the product with Midnight Recovery at night and my moisturizer in the morning has made my skin soft and not dry. I am 66, and I am making this part of my daily routine from now on. Thank you

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.
