Get Pore-Fect Skin in Minutes With the Pore Refine Line!

Get Pore-fect skin in minutes with the Pore Refine Line! 

Pores, pores, pores. What a weird and complicated relationship we have with them. Since magazines seem to enjoy making us believe pore-less skin is something that happens real life (SMH...), reality is short and clear: we all have them, we all want them gone.

But since we can’t get rid of them (oh, how much easier life would be if we could) the skincare and beauty experts of the world have developed formulas that help our skin look smoother by keeping our pores unclogged, calm and happy.

 

I’ve been in a constant war with my very visible pores since I can remember. The problem was that for years I thought it was something I jut had to deal with because it was in my DNA, but no one had told me about a little, super useful thing called exfoliation, the pot of gold at the end of the skincare rainbow. Once I started exfoliating on a weekly basis I finally started seeing some changes on my skin’s texture.

 

So now that exfoliation is officially part of my life, I’ve been on the lookout for some products to help keep my pores clean, calm and irritation free so they look smaller, and there’s where the Refine Pore line enters the game. I’m not gonna lie, I’ve tried many Pore refining products in the past but they usually just give you a matte effect that makes your skin look less oily but pore-full still. Neogen’s Pore Refine line not only helps diminish the appearance of your pores but balances out skin so it looks fresher and healthier, AKA: alive.

 

Now, what can you find on this line? Neogen has formulated two products that together can take your skin from dull to smooth in matter of minutes: The Pore Refine Toner and the Pore Refine Serum. I’ve been introducing both of them to my routine during the past few days and here’s what I’ve noticed so far:

 

 

Pore Refine Toner

 

I’m obsessed with toners and you know it. I have many, I apply layers and layers of it and I’m aaaaalways trying new formulas. That being said I can testify this one is not like any other toner I’ve tried before. Let’s start by saying even when it’s made to get rid of dead skin cells and impurities trapped deep down, tighten our pores and get rid of excess sebum, my skin didn’t look dry or uncomfortably matte afterwards, which is always a fear when trying pore-focused, because let’s face it many of them leave your skin looking dull in exchange of your pores looking smaller, but with this toner my skin looks smooth and pore-less without having to sacrifice hydration or dewyness.

 

Now, talking ingredients, this treasure contains Centella Asiatica (AKA one of my absolute favorite ingredients to calm down my super sensitive skin), Aloe extract and Rice Extract, all put together to instantly reduce excess oil while purifying our pores.

While it can be used for all skin types, I would say oily and acne-prone skin types would get the most benefits out of it

 

 

Pore Refine Serum

 

For a long time in my life (this is waaay before I got into skincare) I was afraid of serums. My acne-prone skin was reacting to anything and everything I was trying on and for some reason I decided to blame serums for it so I just stopped using them.

 

After a few months I realized the problem was on my cleansing routine and once I changed that my skin started clearing up, but serum were still not part of my routine as I was just not used to them. That changed a few years ago when I got into K-beauty and discovered thousands of amazing formulas ready to make my skin shine bright like a diamond. I’m still very picky about the serums I add to my permanent routine: they have to be simple, not too heavy, hydrating and contain gentle ingredients; well, well, well, that’s exactly why this serum made it into my cabinet.

Let’s start by talking about how lightweight and extremely easy to absorb it is. Even when its purpose is to make your skin look less oily and smoother, it’s not drying AT ALL, which makes it a total winner.

 

Besides acne, the past few months I’ve been fighting post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation (as if I didn’t have enough on my skincare plate already), which in a nutshell, makes my skin look red all the time. This serum has helped calm down my skin and reduce irritation extremely fast and on a daily basis. Some of its ingredients such as Witch Hazel, Camellia and Portulaca extract get together in the mix to purify skin and fight against acne, blackheads, whitehead and everything that may be trapped inside your pores.

 

So, if you’re anything like me and don’t feel like giving up hydration and shine in exchange of tight and minimized pores, this is definitely the line for you.

Pore-less skin is now easy with this Sheet Mask!

You know that feeling when you’re gonna try something new but you’re scared because you don’t really know much about it? That's exactly how my first experience with exfoliation was a few years ago. I had heard about it in the past of course but never really knew how to do it right. My closest approach was the scrub my mom used to keep in the shower that I used in my face not even taking the time to read that it was supposed to be for body only (always read your labels peeps!).
