Product Description

Kiehl’s Rare Earth Pore Refining Tonic, US $21 for 8.4 oz. bottle, leaves your skin surface smoother.

Listed below are other benefits that you can expect to derive from this product:

  • It draws out excess oil, dirt and other impurities stuck in your pores.
  • It helps regulate oil production and prevents the surface of your skin from becoming too greasy.
  • It tightens your pores, leaving your skin with a more even toned texture.

Kiehl’s is a brand that once was sold at an apothecary, the forerunner of modern-day drugstores, in New York. Later, the brand was acquired by L’Oreal but remains to be packaged in rough, rustic, apothecary style.
