The problem

Enlarged pores, or hair follicle openings, are the exit for perspiration and other body toxins. Large pores are more visible and become congested with debris, sebum and make-up that isn't cleansed off the face properly - this can lead to breakouts.

The solution

Minimize the appearance of enlarged pores with the Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Pore-refining Toner and Strivectin's Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner.

The Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Pore-refining Toner is a one-of-a-kind daily facial toner for normal to oily skin that provides penetrating ceramides for optimal weightless hydration, making oily areas less noticeable and skin more even, smooth, moisturized and protected. Meanwhile niacinamide helps minimize enlarged pores and improving the appearance of enlarged pores over time. This is a remarkably effective formula with an amazingly weightless feel on skin.

StriVectin's Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner will visibly reduce pores by 50% (this is based on technician evaluation at eight weeks).

Patented NIA-114 technology nourishes the moisture barrier to provide visible age fighting efficacy as it limits the sensitivity common to retinol use. The powerfully effective blend purifies and refines both skin tone and texture, while delivering superior age-fighting benefits.

This potent pore-minimizing lotion helps refine the appearance of enlarged pores while purifying, tightening and reducing the appearance of pores. As it hydrates and smoothes skin texture, it absorbs excess oil to control shine throughout the day for a fresher, mattified and youthful looking appearance.

Better together


Tighten pores with the Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Pore-refining Toner post-cleanse and reach for Strivectin's Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner as part of the last step in your routine.
