Kiehl's Precision Lifting & Pore-Tightening Concentrate

This new serum from Kiehl's claims a lifting and tightening effect, going as far as to claim that pores are visibly tightened and reduced after use.  I've been trialling it for a good month now, and whilst I don't see any obvious visual effect on my pores, I have seen an improvement in the smoothness and firmness of my skin overall.

The serum has a light, fluid texture which feels incredibly silky as you smooth it over the skin.  It absorbs very quickly, leaving skin feeling slightly more hydrated and very, very smooth - it feels almost like a part serum, part primer affair, such is the smoothness left behind on the skin.  I've tried it out with a variety of moisturisers on top, and it's worked well with all of them - not a bit of product overload or piling in sight.

If your concern is pores, this is a great way to smooth the skin out before applying foundation - I found that regardless of the moisturiser I put on top of it, this serum left my skin smooth enough that foundation was a breeze to apply, and didn't gather in the pores around my nose like it sometimes does.  The added firmness and suppleness is a bonus.

The only thing I dislike about this product is the packaging - the pump action, brown tinted bottle keeps the product inside safe from contamination, but the lack of a cap means that the pump can get clogged up with dried up product between morning and night, which has led to me accidentally squirting serum at the wall in the evening.  Nothing majorly off-putting, but it does require you to be a little more careful to avoid any pump mishaps.

At £49 for 50ml, Precision Lifting & Pore-Tightening Concentrate is a bit on the spendy side, but luckily two pumps day and night will leave your face feeling fabulous without speeding through the bottle - I've been using mine twice a day for a month, and it's still half full.  Find it at the Kiehl's website now.
