They Say: Exclusive combination of pore-clarifying ingredients minimizes the appearance of enlarged pores in this fast-acting, alcohol-free liquid vehicle. Gentle polyhydroxy acids exfoliate pore clogging dead skin cells while natural oligosaccharides help reduce the appearance of pores and prepares skin for the treatments that follow.
We Say: If pores are your issue then Rodan & Fields Pore Minimizing Toner is your answer. This is not going to shrink up your pores in one shot- Pore Minimizing Toner is in it for the long haul.
1) Lactobionic acid and gluconolactone: polyhydroxy acids (PHAs) that are cousins to ingredients like glycolic acid and lactic acid (better knowns as Alphahydroxy Acids- AHAs). Because they are cousins they do have some of the same skin smoothing benefits but because of the larger size, they don't go as deep into the skin which means that they are less irritating.
2) Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Seed Extract: Whether your pores have too much oil stretching out the walls, too many skin cells filling up your pores or if your pore walls are just not as strong as they used to be- whatever is causing your pores to be more visible than they should- lentil seed extract can take care of it.
This multi-talented ingredient was tested on different ethnic skin types to see how effective it would be in any given facial situation. It clearly showed a reduction in pore size on different levels: too much oil production, old skin cells going inside of the pores instead of falling off and maturing pores that are beginning to slacken up. This is why Pore Minimizing Toner is not an instant solution. But when it does start to work, the difference is visible (or better yet invisible pores).
TIP: Combine with Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment and say goodbye to your pores within a couple of days.
