Clarins Pore Minimizing Serum

Clarins Pore Minimizing Serum
My skin isn't in too bad condition. For a skincare addict, I am happy to say I am pretty happy with the condition of my skin. Except, that is, for one thing. My pores. And it's been made even worse since getting my huge No7 mirror which decided to show me just how horrendous my pores really are; big, clogged and nasty. And so since examining my face in this nasty, evil mirror (it's actually an exceptionally good mirror) I decided I had to really had to kick my bottom in to gear with some pore targeting products and steps in my skincare routine. Step in - Clarins Pore Minimizing Serum.

Clarins Pore Minimizing Serum
The Clarins Pore Minimizing Serum is a very, very light weight serum, containing purifying Alpine Willow Herb. It works to instantly tighten, purify and minimise enlarged pores, promoting a fresh, flawless complexion. It helps to deliver immediate, all day shine control and a smooth, matte skin texture. It is suggested as being best for those with oily and combination skin.

I apply this morning and night straight after toner and before any of my other and also thicker skincare products. One pump is more than enough; it pumps out a perfect 5p piece size of product which is enough for your whole face. With products like this, you just are not in anyway going to see any over night changes. Not just with products like this but skincare in general to be honest. It takes a while for you to see the benefits of using a skincare product. I've been using this day and night for I would say about five weeks now, and I am starting to see some pretty impressive benefits from it. The pores on my cheeks and the side area of my nose look far smaller and also, less clogged. My nose itself is still a bit half and half - I've seen some benefits, but there's a few stubborn pores which aren't doing anything yet. But that's something I'll notice after continued use. I like this product because I have seen benefits, it's not too heavy, it's an easy step to have in my skincare routine. And for me to see that it's working, means I will continue to use it and hopefully see more and more benefits from it! A 30ml bottle will cost you £22 and you can find it on the Clarins website here

  1. This product sounds amazing! I have troublesome pores too so it's good to hear about a product that works to reduce and unclog them. I'm going to give this product a go!

    Thank you for the review.

  5. This sounds so so good, I've got massive pores on my nose and chin at the moment too :( I've literally just ordered the Effaclar duo though as it's on offer from Boots, so hopefully it will be as good as this! xo

  7. Despite having very problematic dry/sensitive skin, my pores are actually not too bad but I have heard great things about this should I ever have to resort to a pore minimizer. I love your reviews, they're so genuine :)

  10. Sounds like a good product! I have oily skin and open pores and obviously I don't like them. I have tried a lot of things that promise to minimize the appearance of pores, will give this one a go if I find it here!
