Things we’ve learned through our pursuit of beauty, truth here at Into The Gloss: nobody likes pores. Even the word ‘pores.’ Nobody likes it. If we had our way, pores would do their job, invisibly (that job being to act as an outlet for the oil generated by one's sebaceous glands—don’t get us started on ‘sebaceous glands,’ either). If you have 'oily skin,' your pores are bigger than average (to allow the release of all that oil), and as you get older, your pores dilate. How’s that for bad news? Fret not! Kiehl’s Rare Earth Pore Minimizing Lotion with its magical sounding ‘Amazonian White Clay’ (the bottle says it's sourced from the Marajó Island at the mouth of the Amazon River) is here to minimize your pores and refine your skin texture. Unlike other serums and goopy ointments which promise similar results but can feel heavy, sticky or slick, this stuff soaks right in and gives you a refined, smooth, matte result that feels light (after all, who wants to layer more product on their face?). And we swear our pores are shrinking every day—fingers crossed, anyways.
