Enter StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner, the product that magically appeared in my mailbox one day courtesy of the brand. I can’t express how ecstatic I was when I received it. It was almost as if the PR team at StriVectin knew I was struggling with pores (seriously, how did they know?!). After just one application my skin felt smoother and after a week it looked dramatically clearer. The directions call to use it in the morning and evening but I only use it in my evening beauty routine because of the retinol.
First, I wash my face with my all-time favorite cleanser from Liz Earle which keeps my face moisturized even after a hot shower. Then I follow up with Murad anti-aging moisturizer tailored to oily/combination skin that also helps prevent aging (win, win). Finally, I apply the magical StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner. The whole process takes 2 minutes max, which is perfectly sustainable for any lazy girl with or without a busy schedule. In the morning I’ll apply Pores No More by Dr. Brandt or the Porefessional from Benefit (both are equally amazing) under my makeup for a smooth matte affect.
And there you have it! What’s your secret to minimizing pores? Let me know in the comments.
